The banning of single use paper bags from being given out for free is a definitely a step in the right direction.
Probably not.

Given that it is assumed that most people use over 130 bags each year, it is essential that everyone starts making changes to be more environmentally conscious.
No, I only use 127.

The children often remind me that food fads have been a part of American culture, even from before the time when the nation was established. I explain to the kiddies that these food fads have usually not caused much damage because most of those fads have been short-lived. I tell them, though, that now that looney revolutionary Government social activists have used Governmental despotism to get in on the act, no one knows how much damage might be done.

By virtue of Long Beach being home to one of the most radical of the State's unbelievably expensive taxpayer funded California indoctrination camps - the so-called Government universities - it is only natural to expect Long Beach to be the center of revolutionary political activism. For example, the revolutionary activists hate worker *("middle")* class women and men who are forced to suffer the cost of paying for their destructive anti-social behavior. It was there that the now worldwide war against ordinary overtaxed women and men who partake in the simple worker *("middle")* class pleasure of enjoying an occasional tobacco product began.

Now, the revolutionaries have acted to increase "the bottom line" of their Big-Food donor pals by criminalizing competitive little *(non union)* grocers who provide the simple convenience of providing their customers with plastic grocery bags to carry their Government controlled groceries to their overtaxed humble homes.

No one knows what the revolutionary ruling class *(druggies)**(now in power)* will do next to harass the majority of overtaxed and underrepresented Americans - simple God fearing Americans who ask nothing more of revolutionary Government than to be left alone.

Select.

Exactly. We can rail all we want about the degenerate ruling revolutionary class *(perverts)*,*(now in power)* but if the minority of Californians who pay taxes fail to effectively address the matter of the unbelievably expensive taxpayer funded revolutionary California Government university system all those efforts will come to naught. It's time to close 'em down.

Like most others who read this thread, I believe you are entitled to express your opinion. Even so, I do not believe you should find it necessary to use thinly disguised code words to express your deep seated feelings of racism and homophobia. Can't we join together and agree to raise the level of the debate? The Africans and our Homosexual friends are just how God made them. Get over it.
