None of the stores in the San Diego area use biodegradable bags that I know of. No bag has any markings suggesting it is biodegradable. They do however suggest you participate in a recycling program...???
eddiep.

The reason, perhaps, that the US lacks the technological skills to produce easily biodegradable grocery bags is because of Big Government school policies of dumbing down Government schools to the level of the lowest common denominator.

In more technologically advanced nations, easily biodegradable plastic grocery bags have been manufactured for years. Here is a link to only one of many thousands of non-US based manufacturers of materials that are used in the manufacture of easily biodegradable (Lowenthal harassment tax-free) grocery bags:

If they are serious, paper bags would
solve the problem, WITHOUT having to
charge us for them.
It only looks to me like another
scheme to get more money out of us.

You are right, of course. When this crowd of taxpayer supported looneys began this scam to enhance the bottom line of their protected unionized BIG FOOD pals, they used the Government licensed "news" media to promote the idea that food eaters who used healthful plastic bags to carry their overpriced groceries to their humble overtaxed homes would save our friends, the trees.

This is undescored by the comment suggesting that the Holy Father was deposed because he was coming out and in favor of the American Teaparty and arming everyone with sidearms and even gays and some lesbian and transgenders if they agreed to modest dress and reuseable bags. This was apparently after meeting with 2 wealthy brothers who are important enough to get a secret audience and after they showed His Holiness some kind of secret video that he was told would not be shown. What can this mean?

Personally I don't care what they do with the Glednora, California Taco Bell as long as the employees are taken care of however, I am beginning to find the ad at the top of the page for Dominance by Equinox a bit distracting.

The idea of a naked man being mounted by a woman in panties and a bra and ridden across a Glendora Patch cracks me up.

tHere is some problem with the N koreans. they are getting mad because the bags that we now use could be coming from there and if we dont use the bags then what happens to them? they end up with a huge lot of bags and then what do they do? They dont know either what to do with all of the bags that might pile up if this were to happen and so everybody is upset because of some bags that arent there. tEAparty for you and me and the n. koraens.

An article in the SGVExaminer.com newspaper, page B3 February 14 - 20, 2013
Glendora, California.
Penned by Robert Sundance.
Helps explain how and why small time police chiefs of small towns are and have become boot-lickers to the political connected and city council member's.
Physical assaults against senior citizen's by city council member's are swept under the rug and or table, reports gets lost etc. What did you say Gene Murabito or Douglas Tessitor?
Why is it the blind eye is turned towards a illegal act by one of the politically connected and or J-walkers are roughed up and charged with felonies etc.

Our North Korean friends are a clever lot. They are developing intercontinental ballistic missiles that are capable of hitting the US mainland. They know Big Government's knee-jerk reaction is to assume these missiles are being developed to carry atomic bombs. The fact is, though, that our wily adversaries are intending them to carry an even more deadly payload - plastic grocery bags. It is likely the first target will be revolutionary controlled Long Beach. Thousands will be killed - including our friends - the fish.

My instinxts tell me that this is true about the missiles and that the real payload will be MORE illegal aliens and queers and non-neutered pets of all types and stripes. The missile will land and people will gather to lookee and the aliens jump out and sell tacos or baloons or falafel or whatever the north koreans sell from missiles and then they will blend into the crowd and have money from the sales and no taxes will have been collected and no returns allowed or regulations imposed and they will run everything in three years or sooner or later and then we will all wish we ahd joined the teeparty and had weapons on our persons to test fire when we dont know where the food truck is from or what they are really after.

I thought Boris was your friend. Is he really a pedophile? That is sick. What did the others at the station say about this fact? Wow, this is big news, huh?

Does his wife and kids know yet? They searched his media phone huh? Are they still allowing him to stay on the force?
