So has he set up a strawman?

It must be nice to be so oblivious to the world around you that having plastic straws is a genuine concern of yours.
 
2019-03-10 05:32:59 PM  
Fark him, I hope his day will come
 
2019-03-10 05:38:14 PM  
Man, that Nunes.  Always keeping his finger on the pulse of things that really matter. 

"Don't worry, sweetheart.  I'll take your straw concerns directly to the Oval Office myself.  A vote for Nunes is a vote for straws. God Bless America, God Bless Iron Man.  MAGA!"  - Devin Nunes, probably

I believe asking for a straw is code for another menu item, an overhead music request, and fifteen minutes alone in the restroom.
 
2019-03-10 05:45:14 PM  
Says she has to ask now in fear of "THE STRAW POLICE".

The most important thing is that this never ever happened.
 
2019-03-10 05:45:41 PM  
Take it easy guys.  Nunes and co are just so manly they have to dial it down by sucking their drinks through plastic.

All it needs is Devin Numes proclaiming that he'll protect everybody's straws, to which the whole restaurant clapped!

WTF do straw police have to do with socialism? FFS, SoCal, stop electing stupid people.

Go f*ck a grapefruit, Devin.

Yeah the waitress asked if they wanted straws and he just made up the rest. Fark off preferably to prison Devin.

Maybe he should have just used his sippy cup?
 
2019-03-10 06:18:26 PM  
Well damn Devon, why not just go take a shiat in the street while you're at it.
 
2019-03-10 06:18:30 PM  
This has a very Jacob Wohl "I was in a hipster coffee bar and everyone was saying MAGA!" vibes to it.

i.e. bullshiat

He's gotta use a plastic straw because the grapefruit juice turns a paper straw to mush.

The straw is just a beard.

The lady at McDonald's asked if I wanted fries with that.

OMG FRIES POLICE

Straw police. Is that the same group that made up death panels, and defended us during the Bowling Green Massacre?
 
2019-03-10 07:49:07 PM  
Man, Nunes is desperate to be a part of something again...all he wants is a Committee position, and if he has to be a victim of something so silly, so be it. He ain't proud...
 
2019-03-10 07:52:45 PM  
In Strawlia it's mandatory mate!
 
2019-03-10 08:43:40 PM  
I really don't think Nunes needs a straw to do his work.

Maybe he should move to Ohio to be close to family.
 
2019-03-10 08:48:18 PM  
Egads! Being mindful about whether a convenience is an actual need shall surely destroy us all!
 
2019-03-10 08:49:28 PM  
The deeper story is that the poor guy feels inadequate compared to a straw.

Too bad he didn't choke. Hope Mueller gives him a call soon, or he gets a subpoena from the democrats.

So the down side of socialism is that you have to ask for a straw?
Is that it?
I guess I could do live with that, you know, if you weigh it against having a social safety net and the number of times I've needed a straw for whiskey..
 
2019-03-10 08:52:22 PM  
I always tell the waiter that I don't want a straw.  Not so much for the environment, even though that is a good perk, but rather because I'm an adult and can properly drink out of a glass
 
2019-03-10 08:52:26 PM  
I wish the waitresses here would ask if I want a straw, instead of just throwing one down on the table, because I don't farking want a straw.

It's really the simplest of transactions he's whining about, here.

Obliviousness would certainly explain why the legislature had a burning need to pass a bill dealing with plastic straws.

Straws and a wall in the middle of nowhere. These are the concerns of a great nation.

2019-03-10 08:53:59 PM  
well, duh. of course he's going to ask for a straw. How else is Devin going to perform oral on that grapefruit?
 
2019-03-10 08:54:28 PM  
Just drink from the glass, Nancy.

Ecology. Not wasting a straw if not needed. Can't have any conservation, those damn hippies.

DevinNunes: At restaurant tonight waitress asks if we want straws. Says she has to ask now in fear of "THE STRAW POLICE". Welcome to Socialism in California!


No Devin.  She asked you if you wanted
a straw because the guy paying for the supplies doesn't like literally throwing money away by giving straws to people that won't use them.

See also: sweetener packets, coffee creamers, and pretty much anything that is small enough to steal/not used in the restaurant itself
 
2019-03-10 08:57:08 PM  
I feel like he was TRYING....and failing...to be funny.

Ohio? Most grapefruit in this country come from Florida or Cali...
 
2019-03-10 08:57:27 PM  
Get it? Because all laws are socialist. So if you want to lock Republicans up just because they broke several laws you're a dirty commie. In America laws are for locking up brown people.

There haven't been laws before that?
 
2019-03-10 08:57:47 PM  
Which restaurant was it, Devin? What actual town in California? What cut-rate restaurant are YOU going to, that they serve you drinks with plastic straws? Because plastic straws stop being things in upscale restaurants ANYWAY, as you would know, if you actually ate in any.
 
2019-03-10 08:58:24 PM  
Yeah, Devin, it's called a joke.

No one is actually policing the straws.

Making an overblowm twitter post about it just further confirms what an awkward low-IQ grapefruit farker you really are.
 
2019-03-10 08:58:54 PM  
The last time I went to a restaurant I had to actually ask the server for food.  The FOOD POLICE strike again!

I stumbled across a very serious analysis/ evaluation of the message in the movie God's not Dead on the 'Tubes. In essence, the person was very critical of THE CHARACTER that Kevin Sorbo played.

/ TLDR version: this is exactly how every atheist/ liberal professor acts, ohmygerd how DO anyone ACTUALLY the whole thing?

// your statement reminded me of some of the premises of his "better" arguments
