Californian Leftists Call for a Ban on Paper Receipts
It would seem as though lefties have never seen something they didn't want to ban. Just when we think we might be a little too harsh on our Golden State amigos, they go and do something like this. Seeing as they've put the kibosh on plastic drinking apparatuses, they're trying to ban receipts.
I kid you not:
Now California progressives want to ban paper receipts.
The state banned single-use plastic bags in 2016, which was followed last year by a prohibition on plastic straws in restaurants. Warnings are required on products that regulators deem even remotely carcinogenic, from potato chips to aspirin.
The latest scourge is paper receipts. According to state Assemblyman Phil Ting of San Francisco, receipts generate 686 million pounds of waste and 12 billion pounds of carbon dioxide each year, the equivalent of one million cars on the road. They may also contain the chemical BPA, which could cause birth defects if ingested in high doses.
Sure, because lots of people like to sit down in their breakfast nook for a nice bowl of "bill of sale casserole."
This goes to show there's no end to the left's douchebaggery. There is no point where they declare "mission accomplished" and clock out. Today, it's your receipt from the grocery store. Tomorrow, the po-po is kicking down your door to bust you for your secret stash of cancer-causing baseball cards.
Leftists' only solution to fix any problem is more taxes and more regulations. They'll ban everything from soda pop to boxer briefs if nobody gets in their way. California is only a precursor to the rest of the U-S-of-A. So, if you're wondering which direction the left is heading, you need only to look to the west. In the direction of the shower averse Birkenstock-wearers.
