Recently, while debating criminalizing straws in Santa Barbara (after hearing expert testimony from a 9 year-old) a Guess-the-party City Councilman proclaimed
“Unfortunately, common sense is just not common. .” sourceClearly, the people of Santa Barbara have no common sense or they would not have elected such a fascist jerk to office. Sadly, his attitude is prevalent in Democratic Party circles.
I long for the politician who says, "We have too many laws, nothing new needs to be regulated, outlawed, controlled, managed, or governed". How about you encourage people to cut back on consuming one-time use plastics? Do we need a law for everything?
