It’s not like we didn’t say anything about this:

With some experts predicting, at a minimum, anywhere from 480,000 to 1.6 million American deaths from the coronavirus over the next three to 18 months, how smart does urban living, mass transit, open borders, reusable straws, reusable grocery bags, reusable water bottles, gun restrictions, over-regulated housing, using the Centers for Disease Control to fight gun violence, and outsourcing to China look now?

Yeah, really. Like I say, it’s not like we haven’t said something about this previously…

What do these environmental loons think? That the whole idea of disposable items was just for laughs? That single-use was developed by some Bond villain desperate to destroy the planet? That going out to the country for “fresh air” was just some quaint concept?

No, the reason disposable items became so popular was sanitation. What could be safer than removing a straw from a sealed paper sleeve? Those straws are now outlawed in California.

What could be safer than single-use grocery bags where you throw away that leaked meat juice instead of carrying it around until you finally throw the bags in the wash? Those single-use bags are now banned in eight states, including New York, whose ban took effect on March 1.

And for how many years have we been talking about exporting our entire manufacturing capability to China, and the economic frailties involved with that process?

These are all things that the left has been pushing for generations now …and that’s who’s been ignoring the warnings that everybody else has been giving them.

Those problems are coming home to roost. And they all can be laid directly at the feet of the worldwide left…. And they should be called out on it.
