More than enough, but it's still weak.

But who bothers to read them anyway, just post over and move on.

And hope their parents make them go to bed.

Social engineering strikes again. What a waste of time and effort. And the authors of this legislation probably think they are saving the world ... How about solving the real issues?

I agree... why ban one plastic product and not all of them? I want to know what the REAL agenda is behind this issue, cuz it is clearly NOT about these bags in landfills. When these bags are outlawed, then ppl will use the expensive and thicker, slower to break down hefty garbage bags to pollute the landfills.. any civic engineer knows this... and so should any thinking American.

The reason is clear - revolution for the sake of revolution. When the revolutionaries came to power, they rejected thousands of years of hard learned wisdom. The instruction manual records nearly all of that which has been rejected by the revolutionary ruling class:

"And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels," (Revelation 12:7)

"And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven." (Revelation 12:8)

"And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him." (Revelation 12:9)

"And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night." (Revelation 12:10)

"And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death." (Revelation 12:11)

"Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time." (Revelation 12:12)

Most of these revolutionary ideas that have no purpose other than to harass the minority of Long Beacers who pay taxes are dreamed up and applied here first because Long Beach is home to one of the most radical of the State's unbelievable expensive taxpayer funded universities. This November, the voters will have the chance to vote down all of the various tax increase proposals that are designed to further revolutionary harassment. Let us hope the voters make the right choice this time.

<quoted text> LMAO, Due to Liberal political ideology, California is bankrupt, and has been for a decade now. The liberals have given it all away for votes to stay in power. Soon California will fall victim to the parasites looking for a host to feed on! Manufacturing companies and businesses have either moved overseas or out of State! Facts that can't be disproven!

Any single use plastic should be banned when there are other feasible alternatives. Besides, it's not just a matter of polluting landfills, those bags easily travel miles on the wind and end up in waterways. Try doing a coastal cleanup sometime and you will see how bad the bag problem can get.

Ya whats wrong with paper bags? all the logs come from Canada anyway lmao. they won't allow us any industry here. The day you dictate to me what bags i carry my food home in is the day I start growing my own food and homesteading like the old days. Lets see how you corporations do when that movement starts. Pisses me off, who do you guys think you are? Plastic bags are bad for the environment though, but paper bags should be priced into the goods already.
