We don’t need to tell you that California, which at one time was one of the greatest places to live in the country is now nothing but a liberal hell hole.
Of course there are exceptions where areas are conservative, like where I live but the coastal areas and the city slickers are predominantly liberal.
California has come up with some of the most ridiculous laws including banning drinking straws.
Yeah, because global warming or whatever.
Even Rep. Devin Nunes of California who as you know is a Republican in the once ‘Golden State’ is a victim of the lib policies and he tweeted about it calling Cali a socialist state!
While dining at a restaurant the waitress asked him if he ‘wanted’ straws…
The waitress explained that she had to ask because she was afraid of “The Straw Police!”
This is no joke!
“At restaurant tonight waitress asks if we want straws. Says she has to ask now in fear of “THE STRAW POLICE”. Welcome to Socialism in California!” Nunes tweeted:

California passed a law in 2018 making the state the country’s first to ban full-service restaurants from handing out plastic straws unless a customer asks for one., The Daily Caller reports.
Restaurants that don’t comply can be fined up to $300 per year. Fast food establishments are exempt from the mandate. Conservatives argue such laws reek of government overreach, while Democrats consider plastic straw bans a move in the right direction.
Several cities have already banned the products. San Francisco, for instance, voted unanimously in July 2018 to nix all plastic straws. The city ordinance includes fines for violators ranging from $100 to $500. San Francisco follows Seattle in becoming the latest major U.S. city to ban plastic straws and utensils.
Major U.S. companies also joined the movement to stop handing out straws. Starbucks announced in 2018 that it is phasing out plastic straws from its coffee chains within the next two years. The Walt Disney Company has also revealed plans to eradicate straws from its property by mid-2019.
For God’s sake- this is totally insane.
