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.

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.

Please dont move to n.Korea over this. Get some help; ask a priest or teacher or pretend you are somebody else and call a counsellor. Moving to N. Korea over some old bags doesnt make sense and you seem to be in such distress over this simple way of making more money proposed by the business consortium that wants to make life A-La-Carte and charge for every little bit that you once took for granted as free. Moving to N. Korea seems too big a sacrifice and no one wants you to go, I guess.

Murray’s budget would raise $975 billion in tax revenue by closing corporate and individual tax loopholes.

But alone with Billions of dollars being stashed overseas and tax loop holes for the GOP, Republican and Tea Party Toads.

Never let it be said that the revolutionary ruling class (now in power) that was produced by the incredibly expensive taxpayer funded California university system are consistent.

First it was paper bags, now free plastic, what next ban shopping at Wal-Mart?
Now that is a good idea, why not simply ban all Wal-Mart stores period.

The congressman said that "we will not stop until we have destroyed government healthcare and opened up this great market from which untold wealth will flow'. The bags may be part of the concept of commodifying every damn event in life so that business can make more by selling us again what we thought we already had. Okay, I want my share and want some of the wealth. How do we get in there? I'll join the teaparty, garden party, catholic church holy water party or whatever party...This EMBA has got to pay off and soon.

Why are you complaining? Your schizophrenia enables you to qualify for lifelong taxpayer support. The Government is not going to take those benefits away from you, no matter how many "loopholes" your increasingly impoverished benefactors avail themselves of.

What will happen here is a bunch of lazy old men will sit around and cry in their alcohol drinks and threaten to defeat the Decocrats and stop all their progress.

CA State Sen. Bob Huff will discuss working with the Democrat super-majority at a San Gabriel Valley Lincoln Club event at 7:30 a.m. March 15, 2013 Friday in the Ferrero Room of the Pacific Palms Hotel, 1 Industry Hills Parkway.

A noted lazy one will be Douglas Boyd of Glendora. Ca. just take on look at him and it's fat cat written all over him.
