So, if you don't have plastic grocery bags, what do you use for kitchen waste?

The real scandal of the nobama administration. It's abject failure. The nobama administration has failed to;
- Get unemployment in line, the rate is higher today than it was the day he was elected
- Rein in the deficit
- nobamakare a trillion dollar boon dogle, one his "accomplishments" along with his stimulus bill that pissed away near a trillion dollars for little gain
We know you had to be a supporter of Fast and Furious, a nobama disaster, supplying arms to the Mexican drug cartels, it is not a big deal in your sick mind that an American border agent died. Another not a big deal, hillary agrees with you Benghazi, 4 American's died including our ambassador.
In addition you are an out and out racist, you live in a black and white world, black = good, white = bad.

Eed, the dishonest f*ck, tries to slipin the idea that Obama is now to blame for all job losses since the election instead of when he took office like he used to say.

What;s the matter Eed, is Obama improving things too much for you??

The government did not deliver arms to the Mexican cares.

Where is thew proof the agent was shot with a "fast & Furious" gun.

food stampers don't have enough intelligence to afford food...what makes you think they can think far enough into the future to wash off the poo poo on shopping bags?

Galt does not believe in classifying people in your terms. "Working class" is particularly offensive because the left means the working poor, where the right would argue that it means all those who work for a living, regardless of income.
Unless they live within those "redlined" areas that you said were fair..

The subject was access to capital, as for starting a business, not homebuying.

Buying a house in a high-risk neighborhood is like having a poor credit rating.

Washing cloth bags (or plastic bags) will not kill bacteria any more than your clothing is bacteria-free after washing.
Burying your plastics in the Commons does the worse damage though and that's the whole point of banning plastic bags use.

Turning around a 'high-risk neighborhood' with strategic investments in small business micro-financing, adequate mass transit, improved housing , and school funding can raise property values and improve credit ratings more than 10-fold there.

Read the decision and you will find that because the remedy for being uninsured is a tax and not a penalty or a fine, the government's ability to increase the tax is limited without further legislative action, which is highly unlikely.
Why unlikely? Supplysider conservatives have been losing ground and political clout in the Congress--John Boehner removed the supplysider leaders from all the most important Committees.

Because Fox News and idiotic right wing nutcases like Glenn Beck told him so. Of course, the FACT Romney paid taxes to foreign countries and used the foreign tax credit to offset taxes he owed in the United States is completely acceptable in their eyes. Manipulation of the tax code is OK just as long as it is to their advantage. Screw everyone else.

WTF is "the Commons"?

Commie codespeak?

What do you put food waste in for disposal?

Given that all landfills are required to have linings and leachate collection and treatment systems, exactly what damage is caused by plastic bags?

A very rare occurrence, mainly because crime is ignored, just as you did in your post.

Security must come first, or none of the rest is possible.

There is zero, zip, nada chance that the house would approve any additional funding for Obamacare.

And additional funding, lots of it, will be necessary as the program crashes.

Five years ago, our national debt was 70.3% of GDP. Today, itís 107%. Thatís a 52% increase, mostly under Obama. And it is still growing!
When u have a massive recession that lowers revenues, lowers the GDP, and increases spending, this is what you get.

Any American citizen cam deduct taxes paid to foreign countries, for dividends for example, from his US income tax.
