CPR: Full Disclosure: On Wednesdays my wife, and sometimes me, take care of two of our grandchildren at our home. The kids are three and six years old who love swimming. So, they go into a pool and are great swimmers. They also use “noodles”, a Styrofoam three foot long board, so they can float in the pool. We live in Simi Valley—if we lived in totalitarian San Fran, as of January 1, 2017, the use of the noodles would be outlawed.
“COME AND TAKE IT: San Francisco passed the nation’s most extensive ban on foam products, which means no more take-out trays, disposable coffee cups or pool noodles.
Yes, those fun, funky and floatable pool noodles are made out of the same stuff as packing peanuts. That means they’ve got to go, even though pool noodles aren’t (usually) the type of thing that you’d use once and then throw away – like a coffee cup or a take-out tray – and they’re not produced in such massive quantities as to clog up the nation’s landfills.”
How totalitarian is San Fran? They want children to stop using a noodle in the pool. Next they will be outlawing cereals and foods that are not GMO qualified, organic or doesn’t have tofu as an ingredient. San Fran is the headquarters of the Nanny State. more
