He's been hate bashing gutter wallowing slumming it on our local site so I told him I would move on up to Chino Hills Topix. What lovely discussions you have compared to the one I've seen. So polite and environmentally friendly you all are.

I just think that growing your own is the way to go, in a community setting. Everyone participates in their own way. Share, live off the land. Forego Starbucks in the morning.

Sometimes it's both. The bags are definitely being pigs when they publically berate their husbands.

Just another way of reaching into my overly stretched butt hole in hopes taking a few more tax DOLLARS !!
They wont ban these bags but they are sure to attached a "Fee" aka TAX
Its a lot like the $8.00 additional how to buy a new or used car "Fee" you play when purchasing a LCD Screen. They say its a recycling charge but the last I knew there was no redemption centers to get your money back when the stupid thing dies.
I say start dumpling your plastic bags into the ocean. Lets the sea life consume it. Fish love getting stuck in it like a mini-vacation
how stupid

We use those bags...for everything and our trash as well, isn't that the idea to reuse items? I send used clothing to the goodwill, I send things home with our children, who then recycle at their own home. I store stuff in them we us them for car trash bags and I line our trash cans with them. INSTEAD of "taxing them" or prohibiting them, How About An INFORMATIONAL Campaign on REUSING them? Of course that might make more sense than our "lawmakers" can understand.

Let's just ban everyone who's so consumed with self-importance or paranoia that they think it's necessary to hide their location.
