Are we talking about out of towners posters or what?

They have destroyed the iconic Buddhas of Bamiyan, smashed down the fabled “end of the world” gate in the ancient city of Timbuktu and even called for the destruction of Egypt’s ancient pyramids and the Sphinx.

Extreme Islamist movements across the world have developed a reputation for the destruction of historic artifacts, monuments and buildings.

This is plain ignorance. The plastic bags ARE biodegradable! All the law does is to tell the retailers to charge a SEPARATE fee for bags; as if the costs aren't already factored into the items customers purchase. JUST A BUNCH OF JUVENILE LAWMAKERS TRYING TO GRAB HEADLINES FOR THEMSELVES!!!
Yeah the are biodegradable, and what is their halflfe? Like 20 years.

I think naked shoppers, nuders, should be charged for the bags and old people should get the bags at 50% and children could get the bags and sell them to pay for college or dental work for std's, while folks who are armed must bring their own bag filled with CRV returns or park their weapons but not their bullets or swords or q-tips. People who stink could be charged extra too, but that makes it hard on the baggers to figure out what stinks constitute a chargeable stench or reek while other stinks are found as mere wafting odors or scents. There should be a panel of concerned citizens posted at the doors who will determine who passes in with, without, or as a bag, and of what stripe. This can become a new national industry that could well compete with war as our main money maker. That is all.

Are the islamic men so perverted that they have to put a veil on FEMALE CHILDREN So they don't rape them?

To protect baby girls from being sexually exploited, the Saudi cleric, Sheikh Abdullah Daoud, has called parents to make their female children wear the Islamic headscarf.
