You make a powerful case for the Democrat party. You seem to overlook the fact, though, that after the 60s 70s revolutionaries seized control, the "new" Democrat party is no longer the same as the old Democrat party.

Very cool. Hope this comes through. I'm not as environmentally friendly as I should be, but this is a step in the right direction. Thankfully I have the sense to bring my own bags.

sparkarov.

You have a love of the environment. That is commendable. Do you also have a love of our innocent little children? Do you give more than lip service to that love by having your reusable grocery bags certified as pathogen-free by qualified Government epidemiologists prior to their reuse?

Bags suck

I'm glad to see bags finally get banned...Bags freakin suck anyways. Like I was on the bus the other day and this chick wouldn't shut up, and this old dude was like "Shut up u old bag" and I thought that was pretty cool. Not only because he put his foot down but it's funny when two old people get into it. Maybe they should just have all the bags move to the same place, and then they can just say hey listen u turds....you're all getting banned from now on....I'm pretty sure that would solve a lot of problems.

The reason they dont allow bags is because we cant buy enough to fill them with what the dollar ISNT worth anymore. The reason for that is that the wealthy insist on having ever more and they only want to tear it from what we collectively thought was once ours. An early step was the mortgage thingo whereby they stripped out all that equity that us poor dumb slobs had somehow managed to earn and store away even if wages have gone down and buying power has gone down and collective bargaining has gone down. All these DOWNS are on our side of the balance sheet. While we earn ever less for doing more under less safe and with less security, THEY have taken an outrageously LARGER slice of the pie they already ate most of. Corporate bosses now make 40% more from doing less while we are making 33.8% less from doing two or more jobs. While some dumb slob gets a major sentence for petty crime the bosses get 100 (+) Million bonuses for bankrupting the country and our futures. The American Dream trap is always dangled before us saying " If you go along and meekly allow and invite the rape of our future, you can earn the right to dream that you might be, heh-heh, wealthy one day and become the rapist rather than the raped". Jeeez, that is a dream?
