Overtaxed and underrepresented Long Beachers must UNITE NOW to put an end to child abusers. How many little children are being victimized by trendy users of the latest "feel-good" fad - unsanitary heavily taxed disease spreading reusable grocery bags? Let us demand "anti-consumer" - pro-increased BIG FOOD PROFITS revolutionary Council end the violence that is being perpetrated against OUR innocent little children for the sake of filthy lucre!

And to thnk about it, he has made his judgements runing the city using a racist mind set.

Steve Herfert a local city councilman from West Covina, California and a employee of Southern California Edison, appears to have been a long time racists.

Does anyone know whether or not revolutionary Council has made a "study" to determine the number of pedophiles who are using disease spreading reusable grocery bags?

This could be what Steve Herfert is doing: the number of pedophiles who are using disease spreading reusable grocery bags?

Maybe California seeks to ban free, single-use carryout bags in retail stores because there free.

You know how much the far left hates freedom.

My Daddy sayss that they wont let you bring your own bags because they know what kind of bags they want you to have and they want to sell those bags to you because they have a BIGG contract with the Chinese country to sell those bags and the Chinese country is making those bags a lot and then s they want to shipp them and then what happens when you bring your own bag and wont buy their bagg? We know that would cause what Mrs. R calls CHAOSS. There would be great piles of bags and great piles of Angry Chinese conuntry and then there would be you trying to get your tuna and the bottle of 20/20 you sneak every nite time and then the Chinese would get MADD and you would not get your tuna and the bottle in the house and then what would happen with the magazine that you buy and have under your mattresss, HAH! I seen that kind of magazine in the I wont tell. Then there would be CHAOSS and there would be war and you would be the cause and then gas goes up and bonds go down and the rent flies out the window like love. All because for old baggs.

How right you are. The drum beats and we tweats. Twotts tweat tewifically toward twingo. Hey, what about the fact that D Trump has an option on all these old bags? Is there a bag conspiracy? Is there a Bag gap? How do Iranian bags, or NKorean bags figure in this and the Koke Bros are talking about buying some more countries where they might make bags and cous cous cheaper. Sarah Palin is next to god, poor guy. Is it true she only bathes during ceratin types of solar flares and smells like costco limburger rubbed on a lamp?

The City Council of Ukiah has banned merchants from using bags unless purchased.
The City Council should get a clothing allowance to buy turtlenecks to hide the scar tissue from the circumsion.

If Earth's environment is so fragile it depends on the type of bags you use to carry groceries, maybe life was a mistake and our planet's not worth saving.

EXACTAMENTO!
Stop all whining and enjoy the TEAPARTY. We know the truth and that is that God says "do unto others before they do unto you". This means that there is no bag problem only bag sellers and we all need to be armed against bag profiteers. These guys have been buying up bags from the REDS and saving them and now want to move on and make the profit that god promises and this crap no bag crap is in their way. You may be invested in this too and not know it and if you skwawk and holler too much the coin goes out the door. Now the real problem is the damn workers trying to get unions. NO unions. That is not gods way. When they get together they think up crap like more money and then we have less profit and that is not the way truth and light. We cant be responsible for others needs and the bums, drunks, old, sick, hungry and thirsty cant say nothing that we want to hear 'cept yassir, right away sir!
