The leaders in California are not in their right minds.
On July 17, the Santa Barbara city council passed unanimously a new ban on plastic straws that threaten offenders with jail time. The city’s new ordinance forbids the sale or distribution of all plastic straws. The stringent measure is perhaps the strictest of the straw prohibitions that have recently swept across the nation.
The first violation of the straw ban draws a warning. The second violation, however, is punishable with a fine of up to $1,000 and a jail term not exceeding six months.
They welcome illegals, their homeless rate and crime rate are skyrocketing, but they are banning and making laws against using plastic straws. Seems they are worried about the wrong problem. That’s how bizarre the left in this country is becoming.
On Wednesday, Donald Trump Jr. mocked the ban with a sarcastic response on Twitter.
Donald Trump Jr. wrote: “If only Democrats cared as much about curbing MS-13 gang violence as they do about straws…”

Conservative actor James Woods also weighed in on the straw ban, pointing out that California has its priorities screwed up. Woods pointed out the fact that “knowingly giving another person AIDS is no longer a felony.”
But knowingly giving another person AIDS is no longer a felony in California. https://t.co/CGSPr4k4oR

They are both right! Not a felony in California to knowingly infect someone with aids, but a thousand dollar fine for using a straw. Maybe that wall should be built around California.
California still proving to be the state of no common sense. California has some really odd priorities. It’s logic: straws bad, illegal immigrants good. What are they thinking?
