John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Knowles: In California, Giving Someone AIDS Is Okay; Giving Someone A Plastic Straw Is Not

Recommended Posts

Staff

In today’s episode of The Michael Knowles Show, Michael laughs about the straw ban.

 

"They’re going to enforce this with a $1,000 fine or 6 months in jail," Knowles said. "So, if you go to a restaurant in Santa Barbara, and you’re given a plastic drinking straw, that waiter can go to jail for 6 months, and/or get a $1,000 fine, and it compounds on itself. It’s not like that’s the limit."

 

The ban has been implemented in San Francisco, CA, and Knowles goes on to point out something that isn't banned in California.

 

"Now, simultaneously, it’s no longer a felony in California to knowingly give someone AIDS. That’s no longer a felony. That’s no longer a crime," Knowles said. "Give somebody AIDS, that’s fine. Give them a plastic drinking straw so they can enjoy their drink like a civilized person, you go to jail. And you pay money."

 

Video and transcript below:

 

 

And this brings us up to our crisis. All of the crisis we’re in right now. The straw crisis. If you can’t laugh at the straw crisis, what are you doing?

 

But they take it very seriously. The Left right now is banning plastic drinking straws. Right now in San Francisco, they have banned plastic drinking straws. In Santa Barbara, not too far up from us, I was just up there a couple of weeks ago, they’ve banned waiters at restaurants from giving out plastic drinking straws.

 

They’re going to enforce this with a $1,000 fine or 6 months in jail. So, if you go to a restaurant in Santa Barbara, and you’re given a plastic drinking straw, that waiter can go to jail for 6 months, and/or get a $1,000 fine, and it compounds on itself. It’s not like that’s the limit. If you go with your family, you sit down and it’s a table of four, that guy gives you people straws in your water, this guy could go to jail for 2 years. If you have a party in there, you know, you have a party, you invite your big family, let’s say it’s 40 people or something. That guy’s doing 20 years in the clink because he gave out plastic drinking straws. That is some crazy stuff.

 

Now, simultaneously, it’s no longer a felony in California to knowingly give someone AIDS.

 

That’s no longer a felony. That’s no longer a crime.

 

Give somebody AIDS, that’s fine. Give them a plastic drinking straw so they can enjoy their drink like a civilized person, you go to jail. And you pay money.

 

In New York City, New York has decriminalized public urination.

 

So you go to California, you can give somebody AIDS. Go to New York City, you can urinate in the middle of the street. That’s ok.

 

If you give someone a plastic drinking straw, that is a crime.

 

These are really backward priorities here. In California here, they just tried to pass a bill to decriminalize heroin and to allow people to shoot up heroin in safe places, but you can’t have drinking straws.

 

This is a really backward thing, and it’s a culture that’s obviously turned upside down.

 

You know, and the way this whole thing started by the way is because of a nine-year-old kid. I kid you not. A nine-year-old kid didn’t like that people were using drinking straws. He thought that was wasteful. He had been indoctrinated into some environmentalist thing. So he called some restaurants and made up this number. He said “We use 500 million straws a day”

 

Maybe, I don’t know if that’s true and now, as a result, there’s this major anti-straw movement.

 

It’s that urge among the left to just invent a crisis, invent problems. It has to do with their politics.

And the waiters who gave out the straws ? Has their felony got them ten to twenty, or twenty to life for this horrific crime against humanity ? Whew ! Good thing the death penalty was banded in California. Or they'd be on death row.     M

My guess is they "think" the plastic junkyard out in the Pacific ocean has been created by the big, bad, crappy, stinky, capitalist US? Would someone please inform them that it's Asia's fault not ours...
