It ain’t easy dancing to the tune of Social Justice Bullies! Even when you try to comply, you can still earn their ire.
Starbucks has been working really hard to keep those activists happy. But every time they turn around someone gets upset.
There was that incident in Philly, where two men were loitering and asked to leave.
That resulted in a half-day off of work (with lost revenue, obviously) for sensitivity training, or whatever we’re calling it these days.
But this time, they can’t possibly get it wrong. They’re leading the charge on going ‘straw-less’.
It’s a slam dunk, right?
How can you possibly botch an environmentalist issue like that one? Right?
Oh, they found a way.
A simple experiment claims to reveal that Starbucks planned switch to strawless lids in an effort to environmental threat to oceans will actually require the use of more plastic than its previous use of straws with traditional lids, based on weighing the different possible combinations.
The experiment was conducted by Christian Britschgi, assistant editor of Reason, an editorially independent publication of the Reason Foundation, which is a national, non-profit research and educational organization.
‘Customers are at best breaking even under Starbucks’ strawless scheme, or they are adding between .32 and .88 grams to their plastic consumption per drink,’ Britschgi argued in the article.
Starbuck was quick to reply that they really were doing a good thing because it’s a different kind of plastic. One that’s better for the environment.
And also, because straws fall through the recycling equipment, but this won’t.
Will that matter to the environmental fire-breathers? Or will they be denounced as ‘sinners’ over their new lids, too?
There is just no pleasing some people.

There’s one thing that increasingly unites men and women these days. We can both agree that Liberals are losing their ever-loving minds. Now there’s a shirt that says just that.
Conveniently available in Both Ladies…
AND Men’s versions.
Either Liberals just don’t get it, or they are sick in the head. Probably both. Think about it: They want to have all of the blessings that come with living in a capitalist society such as modern medicine and technology. But they believe in socialism, which stifles innovation and progress.
They want to be protected by the police and the military, but they attack and criticize the men and women who protect us. They call conservatives “racists,” but it’s their own identity politics that have created race problems in the first place. After all, Democrats were the party of slavery!
They attack hunters, but have no problem wearing leather shoes or owning cars with leather upholstery! And of course, they believe guns kill people. Not the people that pull the trigger.
Well, here’s a shirt that sums it perfectly. Liberalism is a… MENTAL DISORDER.
And the best part? This shirt is made in the USA, printed in the USA, on an American-Made t-shirt press!
