The article was brought to my attention by Pat Gray of the Blaze and Glenn Beck show.
(The author’s thoughts are justified left, while my brilliant commentary is indented)
12 years ago, San Francisco became the first city in the US to ban plastic bags in a very controversial vote which was mocked by almost everybody across the country. Fast forward to today and the bans are being celebrated across the country, including around the coast of conservative South Carolina. Richland County has passed the ban in its first reading and is poised to make it the law. Lexington County appears to be headed in the same direction.
This doesn’t surprise me. This kind of stuff happens a lot in the liberal enclaves of otherwise conservative States – State capitals and big University cities and towns.
And unfortunately, these 2 counties are defined by both.
Richland and Lexington Counties basically surround Columbia, the capital of South Carolina. First, you have all the State government hacks living in these counties. So naturally, being in government these people will be more liberal.

I found a new website the other day. Okay, more like I stumbled over it. It’s called Common Dreams.
I can’t remember how I found it, but it is quite revealing of the minds of the ultra-progressive left. And when I say left, I mean like MoveOn.org and Media Matters left. This site makes CNN look middle-of-the-road. Okay – not quite, but pretty close.
Okay, now I remember how I found it. I was looking for some information about a speech that actor John Cusack gave at a Bernie Sanders rally over the weekend in New Hampshire.
A Common Dreams staff writer wrote a glowing account of the gathering and Cusack’s speech. The article is entitled, “Bernie Sanders Has Been Getting It Right for 40 Years. Now, Says His Movement: ‘We Are Going to Win’ – “We’ve never ever in our lifetimes had a true champion of social, economic, and climate justice this close to the White House.”

I truly feel sorry for Greta Thunberg.
This poor kid has been so utterly brainwashed that there may be no coming back from it.
She has not only bought into the climate apocalypse lie, but has been successfully sold the entire anti-capitalist, anti-freedom agenda.
Leftism is a religion. It is the religion of everything anti-capitalist, anti-individualism, anti-individual freedom and rights. It’s communism dressed up as utopian socialist collectivism. And she and countless other lost souls of her age have found a warped purpose doing the bidding of their elder radicals.
If you’ve ever wished that your tomato plants were a bit more compact, you’re in luck. A team of scientists, led by Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Professor and HHMI Investigator Zach Lippman, has come up with a genetically-engineered tomato plant that is more a bush than a vine, with fruits that grow like a bunch of grapes.
Our plastic waste problem is a large one, and it’s only getting larger. This is a huge environmental problem that requires some big picture thinking, but scientists are also exploring more subtle ways of chipping away at it and that includes turning plastic waste into sources of fuel. New research out of Singapore’s Nanyang Technological University (NTU) has thrown another interesting possibility into the mix, with scientists converting consumer plastic into a chemical used to to produce electricity in hydrogen fuel cells by exposing it to sunlight.

The hypocrisy of the left is sometimes so over-the-top that it becomes almost incomprehensible. And the irony is evidently lost on them all.
At the same time, last Saturday, as that eco-privileged children stormed the field during the Yale-Harvard football game, the leftist democrat presidential candidates were having a cookout in Iowa, where they cooked up over 10,000 steaks, using noxious barbecue grills which bellow out smoke and warm the planet. All the major players were in attendance, grilling away.
Yet on the very same day and from the climate warming grill-fest, some of the most staunch (and phony) eco-warrior candidates were tweeting their support for the football field protest to combat climate change/fossil fuel/global warming.
From the smoke filled grill-fest, Bernie Sanders, who is backed by Green New Dealer, AOC, tweeted: “Congratulations to the young people demanding a sustainable future for our planet. We are with you in this fight.” In his defense, Bernie does know quite a bit about fossil fuel, as he is himself, a fossil.
from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:
And this time they’re serious!
The Climate Change hoaxers seem to have the pedal to the metal, as “11,000 scientists warn of ‘untold suffering’ caused by climate change.”
CNN asks, very sincerely: “How many scientists does it take to convince the world to take climate change seriously?”
In my view, a lot more 11,000 scientists/researchers/activists. We are just supposed believe them and follow them blindly, and without question, down the road to the destruction of our way of life, as they claim climate change is caused by the “excessive consumption of the wealthy lifestyle.”
