Third world countrie stores dont provide bags, bring your own is the policie, we are just spoiled, costci doesnt provide bags and you pay for membrship. Bringing your own bag is big deal, hiw long does it take the bag to degrade
Studies show that old bags degrade in some time, some faster than others. There is currently the concept of the thousand year mulch, as proposed by Mitts Ronmey. This si a good idea if you dont plan to be around for the big wash-up.

Single use bags are clean, strong and efficient. Instead of pet hairs on the conveyor, let's keep it clean, keep you bags to yourself.

Jeb Bush admits he is a "crack Addict." Finally.

He started out with sample drugs he bought at the family compound used to store drugs for his fathers party friends overseas.

Barbara Messina (Alhambra) was co principal with Angel Carillo (Azusa), in throwing out sgvCOG President Tom King from Walnut and past president Carol Herrera of Diamond Bar off of the executive board of the sgvCOG. Their crime? They criticised the conflicts of interest charges by CALTRANS about Nick Conway. Carillo, who succeeded King as sgvCOG president was pandering his business with Arroyo Seco Associates on the very night he was elected sgvCOG president.

Why not ban the dump dirty paid under the table politicians whose sponsors think nothing of slipping big bucks to them to get laws they want passed.
Any store that refuses to box my shopping will not see me back.
Stop supporting stores that agree with such a dumb law and support stores that are against it.

You got it! Joijn the teaparty they said and I did and I am better now that I knbow all this crap will end once we get our way and gods way and that is our way as in the bible they say " arm yourselves for an evil is coming sayeth he that sayeth this, verily". So when we are all armed as god intended then nobody is gone to say NO BAGS Bub, they si gonna say HOW MANY BAGS CAN WE GIVE YOU< SIR MISTER PLEASE. That is how GOD helped us defeat the dinosuaurs, he gave us guns and gave us ammo. Like the guy said if he didint do that then they dinosuaurs would still be running around biting off cows whole heads and crappping in on the freeways making travelin times hard yet we stopped them and that is how it all will go.

Glendora, California just can't catch a break.

One lawsuit after another, it's time the Attorney General of the state of California and the F.B.I. step in and clean this rotten town up.

Hundreds of physicians, psychiatrists, and medical school faculty members across California are on the payroll of major drug companie.

Now earn tens of thousands of dollars for speaking to other medical professionals at events held by industry leaders that make drugs such as Advair, Cymbalta, Viagra and Zoloft.

From 2009 to 2012, California doctors who participated were paid $242 million.

The highest in the nation, by major drug companies for research, speaking, consulting, trips and meals.

Even high paid less ideological Government judges have stopped the nutty Mayor of NYC from imposing his 16 oz. soda pop container limit. The California revolutionary ruling political class was successful in its efforts to used hard earned taxpayer money to create a voting majority of taxpayer dependents - including millions of taxpayer supported Thug people - in the State. They now rule without opposition.

The best example is probably revolutionary controlled Long Beach. There, the city's increasingly impoverished taxpaying minority is required to subsidize free grocery bags for the "fat-cat" tax eater voting majority while at the same time being required BY LAW! to pay for their own.

The city's many elderly tattooed tobacco smoking biker grandmothers are even prohibited from holding their gang meetings in dangerous Council controlled Belmont Shore beer joints UNDER PENALTY OF REVOLUTIONARY LAW!

it's happening here. people are stealing things because of it. stores are losing money. now i have to buy garbage bags that don't fit my eco-fascist garbage can. i'm so sick of totalitarian democrats and progressive republicans i could puke. i used these for garbage bags because it was cheaper for me and the small bags were very convenient and fit in those tiny little garbage pickup cans. stop voting for idiots. take your life, money, and country back!

i was born and raised. all of you granola fruitcakes came and destroyed my state and now you're on your way to ruin texas because now we're out of money and you can't mooch off of us any longer. go move to cuba or north korea and mooch off of them.

another psycho liberal trying to make people in the teaparty look dumb. you creeps can't even decide who a tea party member is because you want to say rich old white men to toothless hill billies. you know what? you're so ignorant you don't even realize that the tea party is made up of republicans, democrats, libertarians, and independents. you're so busy pulling your head out of the butt of chris matthews that you can't even stop to think for yourself. it's almost like your brain is the brain of his ... insert word probably not allowed here.
