  1. Regular component of street litter here in Libtardia NW. Every storm grate marked as leading to where fish live…

  2. Would hate to deprive all the dolphins and whales from covid protection. Animals are people too.

  3. About half as many as I have picked up from the floor of my home and car that the kids have hauled in from everywhere.

  4. So the democommies love their masks and want to save the world partly by destroying big oil.

    Exxon released quarterly numbers today. The big standout was plastics production. Plastics for making masks!

  5. Pretty much replaced diapers with face-diapers all over the freaking Wal-Mart parking lots here in El Phoenix.

  6. So which country still dumps its trash in the ocean? Hint: it’s the same country that created the virus and manufactured all those masks.

  7. China and foreign ships. DUmp their trash right into the ocean.

    A little, but VERY little of this garbage comes from the U.S.

  8. Let me guess, the greenies will want a deposit and a tax on mask sales. Wait and see

  9. And they used to harass people for throwing a cigarette butt out the car window in Tucson, I kid you not it was a 500.00 fine.

    You won’t hear one peep out of the environmentalists over this.

  10. The dinosaurs got a layer of Iridium to mark their end in the fossil record — we get fucking face diapers.
