    It was just a rephrasing of the advice. ;)

    Says the man who sobbed over a plastic bag ban. Why couldn't you adapt to that?

    I did.

    Save of course for the man who is so consistently dense minded to think plastic bags itself was focus in the first place, in spite of multiple and futile attempts to point out its the legal mechanisms instituted to control people and businesses and not the bags themselves.

    I'm not "pro authoritarian" (but is banning harmful materials like asbestos and lead paint really that?), but you suggested people should adapt rather than attempt to fix things.

    I prefer educated. Not demonizing things to the likes of the apoplectic dawn of mankind to justify authoritarian policymaking.

    You deny science and lap up **** fed to you by lobby funded, agenda driven politicians, so I doubt it.

    I guess you must not have a family pet, or just don't really give a **** about it's health and wellbeing. Oh well, that's life and reality. Some people just don't care for their own animals. I've never understood why they own them then. For food?

    No. Just being realistic to note nothing is actually accomplished other than more and more control exercised over people by authoritarian advocates.

    If it was something that could be actually corrected, this subject wouldn't even be discussed.

    I see things beyond one's control and abilities to correct, as the realities of life and living for pets or human. It's actually a neutral assessment.

    Yup. The line at the vet seemed extraordinarily long. My dogs were patient, although. :p
