Costco does not distribute bags? What is the big deal for clean environment? Those dam things blow away and are all over countryside.

I agree. Before the revolution, "the American people" would have solved this problem by exercising the initiative possessed by them by merely picking up the bags and depositing them in the trash. Then, the litterers would be fined an amount equal to that money hard working taxpayers had expended to apprehend them.

After the revolution, the Godless revolutionaries *(now in power)* usurped all the prerogatives that were possessed by free Americans up to that time. The result was that civic responsibility was destroyed and Big Government was reduced to imposing Lowenthal grocery and goods bag harassment taxes on those who do not litter, and on those who do not get "free" taxpayer funded food stamps.

I am sorry,it no longer matters WHICH party you vote for. They have both fallen to the greed factor. Rep,Dems,put both in a bag and shake em out...You'll not be able to tell one from the other or which came out first.

Our country is in a serious state of affairs now.Our political leaders have turned to the dark side & it's no longer about the love and well being of America,it's all about the love of the holy dollar and the well being of keeping the money coming in to fund their follies and excapades.
America has been sacrificed by the globalists,the socialists,the elites & corporatists for money,power & control.The only hope we have now is to elect in the lesser of the 2 evils(the one who doesn't want to kill America,only gain wealth from her),muzzle that president by taking control of both house & senate,then eliminating the fed res,the central bank cabals,the CFR and UN.This(hopefully) effectively stems the funding and allows us to hobble spending.We then return to an asset backed currency.
This is the *only* solution,and it will not be easy by any means of the word.Blood will be spilt without question. If we can accomplish this,then we reset govt with constitutionalists and very limited powers and begin anew.

God save us and help us.We're going to need it!

I wish more people understood this concept that you do. Obama cares nothing for the gay community. He's simply catering to them to gain their votes and pretending he cares. If he wins,he'll turn on them like a rabid dog.

When the government takes our plastic bags away,only outlaws will have plastic bags.

I can only imagine the number of drive by baggings,the flaming plastic poo bags,and multiple bag wounds caused by back alley baggings that will occur because only the criminals will have bags.
Defend out 27th amendment. The right to own and carry plastic bags!

Who says they are single use. Now we have to buy bags to line our trash cans. Does that help anything.
