150k tons divided by 330 million Americans equals 14.5 oz per person per day.
When you consider spoiled food, spoiled consumers, and spoiled tort lawyers, that is not a lot of per capita waste.
In my opinion, whenever you see these topics appear, they are being pushed by the Left for whatever Leftist reason they have.
They are likely the same kind of idiots who want us to eat bugs so we can save the planet from the horror of cow-farts.
I’ll eat bugs only if I am starving and cachectic with my pelvic bones and spine showing through, and not before.
It doesn’t mean we on the Right are all in on just wasting things, but we have the perspective to override our blind ideology or our virtue-signalling particle in our brains (Leftists have an entire lobe)
