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?

Well okay, but what can we do? Seems like the whole show has been sold to the top and that all we do is run around in the ant farm to amuse them basturds. Better grab what you can from the crumbs that fall. Can't fix this.

Both Judy Nelson of the Glendora city council, California and Debbie Neal of the military banner group in Glendora, California are a couple of misguided dangerous FOOLS.

Much to the outrage of parents, some students at a Massachusetts middle school this week were denied lunch. The 25 kids in question weren't allowed to eat because they couldn't afford to pay.

These two screeches' would be in favor of doing what the Mass. middle school did, since they are both tea party member's.

Ad over the hill, useless air breathers, in fact both of them supported calling children wild ANIMALS and no need to feed them.

The entire Glendora, California city council supported them both:

It is well known that reusable grocery bags are the primary source for spreading the Escherichia coli killer bacterium. Does anyone know whether or not revolutionary Council has any plans to track down and apprehend trendy "reusable" grocery bag users?

I have been besieged by hysterical children who claim they have actually witnessed reusable grocery bags being sat upon the check-out counters of revolutionary Council controlled grocery stores - as hard as that may be to believe.

I have tried to contact the politicized Council controlled secret police to discuss this problem, but they refuse to accept calls that do not transmit identifying telephone numbers of callers.

Like so many other elderly overtaxed Long Beachers when the Government controlled telephone company introduced caller ID I did not sign up for it. I fear being arrested were the secret police to construe any such inquiry made to 911 to be "frivolous". I do not want to chance spending the few remaining days left to me being eaten by huge rats and bitten by gigantic bloodsucking lice while I rot in some Government jail.

Anyone with any information regarding whether revolutionary Council is actively engaged in tracking down and apprehending users of disease spreading reusable grocery bags will be appreciated. I promise to relay any information that the informant may post on to the children.

E Coli has increased sunstatially due to people using bags multiple times. You must toss or wash bags that carried meat products. They are not banning the bags they are just going to make you pay for them. Nanny State.

One of the issues during the Measure B campaign was whether the law really would drive away producers.

The early signs are it will.

Was I not surprised to read the XcXcXc report detailing that once again B of A, Chevron, Pfizer and at least 174 other BIGGGGG companies will again pay no income tax, while mine will go up at the same moment that me buying power diminishes. Ditto that each company has some HIGHLY compensated top dogs who will pay less taxes than the senior center's janitor does and we dont have a janitor that we pay a cent to. On top of that the bassturds now wanna take me bags?

When the cashier asks, "Plastic or paper?" I always say I want my purchase in double-bagged plastic. It makes it easier to carry and when I get home, I put the bags inside another plastic bag in the closet.

When I have too many bags, I take them out to the barbeque pit late at night and set them on fire. I'm testing whether those greenhouse gas emissions will warm the climate. So far, I haven't noticed a global climate change that correlates with my experiments.

Back to the drawing board...
