This should be funny. In 1990, my 4 year old daughter, used her ventilation, LAUGHED, and verbally spoke to me about it, as I visited her that weekend. A few days later, my 95 year old grandmother, did the SAME thing. Her too, LAUGHING out LOUD, about it. The difference, between the two types, is a WOMB. between the WOMBman, and a man, is the WOMB. When the Womb dries up, the body is the SAME. When the Nocturnal urge arises, the target is the Pinkeyed Rosebug. From a 4 year old, to the 95 year old. It will not wear out, and that is the only target, that men want. After spending HUNDREDS of USD at Macy's or Gottchocks, ALL of the money, was spent on the WRAPPERS. NOT the RED eyed CANDY, hehe.
QUOTE who ARIZONA WE LOVE YOU Just another way of reaching into my overly stretched butt hole in hopes taking a few more tax DOLLARS !!
They wont ban these bags but they are sure to attached a "Fee" aka TAX
It's a lot like the $8.00 additional Fee you play when purchasing a LCD Screen. They say its a recycling charge but the last I knew there was no redemption centers to get your money back when the stupid thing dies.
I say start dumpling your plastic bags into the ocean. Lets the sea life consume it. Fish love getting stuck in it like a mini-vacation

Yes. You are exactly right. Like all the silly schemes the revolutionary ruling political element cooks up, the Lowenthal grocery and goods bag harassment tax proponents conceal half the truth. For example the Lowenthal grocery and goods bag harassment tax that revolutionary Long Beach Council imposes on the mostly poor residents of the city helps the bottom line of their pals, the greedy unionized grocery moguls.

Revolutionary Council would have us believe Lowenthal grocery and goods bag harassment tax will save an occasional fish who - unlike his more intelligent fellows - doesn't have enough sense to avoid dining on secondhand tree-saving plastic grocery bags. Like all "Forward!" schemes the revolutionaries,*(now in power)* come up with, once the Lowenthal harassment tax is accepted by increasingly impoverished minority of city residents who do not pay for their groceries with taxpayer funded food stamps, the next step will be to criminalize competitive orientated non-unionized grocers who offer free paper grocery bags to their customers.

Then, the object of the revolutionaries' will come into focus. "REUSABLE" grocery bags which are promoted by greedy unionized grocers are subject to the burdensome California sales tax, a heavy tax burden that high priced unionized grocery moguls are more than happy to collect for their politician buddies. Of course, this does not even scratch the surface. How much oil based fertilizer will be needed to replenish the land that is being depleted in order to grow the cotton that is used to manufacture those "reusable" and heavily taxed disease spreading grocery bags? How much baby killing CO2 will spewn into the atmosphere as a result?

Does anybody remember when the grocery stores use to recycle their boxes by putting your groceries in them? Thus "box boys". Now who couldn't use a box over and over again. Costco is kinda good about that, and I always like it when I get a really good box!
