Insanity: Despite the fact that you could bury the world’s trash in a minuscule portion of the Earth, Left-wing environmental wackos are hell-bent on getting as many modern conveniences banned or regulated as possible.

In recent months they’ve managed to convince liberal lawmakers and policymakers that plastic straws will destroy the planet if they are not banned from at least some major cities. Now these same goofballs are coming after another party favorite: Balloons.

These liberal morons are NOT environmentalists. They are power-mad control freaks hellbent on taking every right you have and converting those rights into GOVERNMENT CONTROL.

Stop liberals. Stop liberalsim. Stop Marxism. Vote them out. BAN DEMOCRATS!!!

"...red SOLO cups..."


They really will not wish to mess around with the well-funded beer pong and drinking games lobby.

Well, liberals do have a point.

Banning all artificially created utensils and gadgets and oil-consuming vehicles and everything else since the cave ages, will only send us back to the stone-age.

And, humans did survive during the stone-age, so, people shouldn’t have a problem with that.

The most wacko of all antt-balloon claims is that “the world is facing a helium shortage”.

Right.

An inert gas which can be extracted from the atmosphere and returns to that atmosphere.

Anyone with any common sense knows why these fools are doing all of this.

They will do anything and used any means to control us. They don’t care for us. But these lousy lying leftist liberal socialist snowflake losers are so loony the more stupid and demented the action the more they will try it. First: Plastic Straws. Second: Now Balloons. third. What’s next: disposable diapers/underwear for babies/children Older adults. Perhaps paper plates and bowls. for them the list is endless.

Be ready people, these idiots are control freaks and they don’t care how they screw us as long as they do it to get there way!!!!!

Just remember, it’s the puritan, religious right that wants to take all the fun out of life.
Now be a good comrade and turn in your balloons.
