For smiling....for talking...oh..I know..pay a fee for anyone who has run out of gas and has to WALK on the city streets to get to a gas station..that should be worth a few million as it has been happening a lot to people who live HERE!!!

So if we are the same and one, why can't you put me/us away? seems you are weak and don't have the knowledge to defeat me/us. ha ha ha. Should be easy to defeat us, knowing we're the same person, no mexibitch, vladabitch LOL you have been defeated this is factual! It is my hobby now to place you into a state of being embarrassed; and from the ambiguity in your comments, you are generally contrasted with vagueness with your attempts of defense to prove everyone wrong about your ignorances. You pathetically suffer a a mental state of being uninformed and lack knowledge where your tactics have only caused everyone a suspicion and mistrust towards you, we vision you only as a pissed off black skinned chicano defending yourself and presenting idiotic excuses for your actions! The truth bothers you deeply mexica, otherwise you wouldn't xecert so much efforts into monitoring every post on topix and rushing to insult those who voice their oppositions to your rhetorical strategies. I have all the time in the world to send you 1000's of rebuttals to your chicano propaganda and disarm your fallacious critisism of others. All your comments here on topix are simplistic and geared towards spreading your racist agenda; that is usually an error in reasoning often due to your misconceptions or presumptions in your efforts to describe something that is commonly believed to be true in your mind, but is in fact false! You mislead your race, lie to them in hopes of persuading your nonexistent audience. In other words mexibitch, no one agrees with you except for your alter ego! The real and genuine loser here in you and only you, end of story.

Mexica/vlad is “A” person who is obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices, he is especially one who regards or treats the members of a group (as a racial or ethnic group) with hatred and intolerance. Mexica/vlad is “A” person with social behavior and political views held to be influenced by private interest.
Mexica/vlad is a revealer of embarrassing his own race! Obtaining an alter ego to sustain his beliefs is noticeable by his secondary screen names in these forums.
His postings on topix are dogmatic which is characterized by his expression of opinions very strongly or positively as if they were facts, knowing the information is not factual.
His ideas are ludicrous misinterpretations of evidence regarding past civilizations. Arguing with mexica/vlad is pointless as he is noted and labeled as a scandalous hypocrite, making offensive comments to other Latino people who he strongly and unfairly dislikes; he especially hates or refuses to accept the members of a particular group such as a racial group or religious group, mainly El Salvadorians, South Americans, Guatemalans, Americans, and Europeans.
His attempts to teach racism to other Latin people are ineffective, useless and incapable or producing any results as the vast population of Hispanic/Latin people disagrees with the political and racial ideologies of mexica/vlad, who is himself seemingly contradictory in his statements that consists of a logical incompatibility!
Mexica/vlad displays a lack of education by his chronic use of Broken English that is fragmented, incomplete, and/or marked by faulty syntax and inappropriate diction!
If indeed this man/person was truly educated in college as he professes, surely he would communicate in an appropriate manner with the use of college level English grammar! He contradicts his fraudulent claims of “college educated” by his inability to construct a proper sentence with chronic use of Broken English.
Persons possessing college education are capable of speaking both English and Spanish properly, correctly, grammatically precise and without a foreign accent! Mexica/vlad fails in his capability to prove otherwise that he is nothing more than an ignorant bigot lacking education. It would seem genuinely accurate to classify mexica/vlad as a true bigot!
I am all for getting rid of plastic all together, but what other choice do we have? If we use paper, the environmentalists have a fit, if you use plastic the same! What would be the solution to this dilemma?....SIMPLE...bring your own reusable cotton bags!

LMAO, Due to Liberal political ideology, California is bankrupt, and has been for a decade now. The liberals have given it all away for votes to stay in power. Soon California will fall victim to the parasites looking for a host to feed on! Manufacturing companies and businesses have either moved overseas or out of State! Facts that can't be disproven!

Figures you would come up with a remark this stupid and lacking intellectual quality! You are of no significants here you dumbazz. Go learn something, or are you not capable of having an IQ? You just full of uneducated nonsense you gig up off the Internet! Imagine that! I think you're attempting to imposter yourself as an educated man, when in fact you are just as dumb as the indigenous people the conquistadors from Spain spoke of in their documentation to the King of Spain 400 years ago, on how savage and worthless the indigenous aztec mexica were! You're the same way now 2012

Don't forget that much of the money goes to taking care of the illegal aliens that have invaded California and the idiots running the State want to buy the illegal alien vote. Everyone knows that the liberals have figured out a way to get illegal votes from illegal aliens. Ever heard of the fake polling booths set up in parkinglots where the illegals vote? It's true! Blame the illegal aliens too for the huge downfall of California. It's a welfare State for illegal aliens. Invaders!

Social engineering strikes again. What a waste of time and effort. And the authors of this legislation probably think they are saving the world ... How about solving the real issues?

I agree... why ban one plastic product and not all of them? I want to know what the REAL agenda is behind this issue, cuz it is clearly NOT about these bags in landfills. When these bags are outlawed, then ppl will use the expensive and thicker, slower to break down hefty garbage bags to pollute the landfills.. any civic engineer knows this... and so should any thinking American.
