If plastic bags are still being banned in cities, then the franchised stores which are ordered to use them under the missions and charters of Corporations which Founded them are supposed to CLOSE, and they have not, however they continue to receive LARGE substantial FINES each month which affects the structure of how people are PAID and what insurance is provided for the people. Stop interfering with people and their abilities to provide what they choose, or ALL will close under the World Market Structure in EVERY economy on the planet.
Unleaded Fuel was once considered 'green for the planet' under Science Research, and politicial interference has destroyed the lab-work and legality of its World Agreements to exist. The Paris Hilton you know of as 'paparazzi' didnt run that microscope!

The whole government wastes our hard earned tax money. Pours it right down the drain.

DDD.

Wollery has some pretty good ideas, but he failed to address all the hard earned taxpayer money the politicians are wasting on the Thug community.

It is a topic of current news that Jackson, Sharpton, and Obama are able to rouse thousands of taxpayer supported Thug people to protest any hard working "Hispanic", Asian, or White taxpayer who might need to defend his person or his property from violent Thug behavior. The nation's taxpayers should not be too proud to admit that they are all George Zimmerman.

While it is true that Thug violence is part of normal Thug "culture", that is not an approved way of expressing "culture" among those of the non-Thug community. Perhaps cutting off all the hard earned taxpayer money and in-kind goods and services the politicians are providing the Thug people will moderate the ongoing violence and threats of escalating violent Thug mob action.

True, some politicians may be operating under a good-faith belief that transferring hard earned taxpayer money from the law abiding tax paying "Hispanic", Asian, and White communities to the Thug community will delay its inevitable violent mob action, but that eventuality is only a matter of time.

The politicians have wasted ever greater amounts of taxpayer money paying off the Thug people without any positive result. Now that such wasteful and extravagant expenditures have resulted in bankrupting the nation, perhaps its time to turn off the money spigot. Let's demand the politicians cut our losses so the nation can move on.

Seems like a great way to divert budget money into a fabricated venture where the manufacturers are sure to be associated with their political buddies. Money for all. If you consider all to be politicians and their special project financiers. This is what happens when the fox guards the henhouse.

Ecology - Schmeology.......just another way to charge people for what was once free.

If this lame law were REALLY ecology centered, it would have simply banned single use bags outright but no, it merely banned giving them to customers free of charge.

To me, all this law says is "Cha-ching".
