Wait until your personal information gets hacked on one of these Obama Care websites. Then the problem of the bags will seem small.

You could be right. Despite previous Government denials, recent revaluations have revealed that all forms of "private" communications and records of the American people, are direct pipelines to prying Government ears and eyes. These pipelines are not limited to recorded telephone communications and American based social media and other Government controlled data gathering agencies such as banking and credit "reporting" agencies. No American knows who might get their hands on this "private" information. As violent home invasions become more and more commonplace in the nation - often resulting in the deaths of "owners" of Government controlled "private" homes - one can only wonder if Government "equal employment" laws are not being used as the latest means to transfer the modest "wealth" of increasingly overtaxed and impoverished taxpayers to the violent criminal underclass.

When your government legislates how you can bring groceries home from the store; you've got too much regulation and they are spending too much money.

Yes. I agree. An even more recent example that is being promoted by Government licensed "news" media are Governmental efforts to force ordinary worker *("middle")* class Americans to buy forced Government mandated "health" insurance - or otherwise face confiscatory tax penalties that will eventually be imposed for "non-compliance". Like most Government schemes that have been devised since the clever - but disingenuous - self-serving 60s 70s revolutionaries came to power, the stated objective is not the true objective. In fact, this scheme - as well as other revolutionary schemes like it - is just another means to transfer what remains of the modest worth of the increasingly impoverished worker *("middle")* class to the obese "fat cat" tax eating class, the indolent so-called "poor".

In this instance, it might be said that food-fads and medical quackery have been a part of the nation's psyche even prior to the establishment of the nation itself. Most of those food-fads and medical quackery have done little damage to the American people because they have usually been short lived. Now that revolutionary Government charlatans have gotten in on the act, though, no one knows how much damage that will be done.

So bring your own bags. Inconvience maybe but remember your blessed by being born here in USA. Most of the people of the world would love to have only this small problem. Truth is we can no longer continue to use our home as a dumping ground. Too many people for that. How many people fit in one bed. Get it.

Our Government is not telling anyone how to bring their food home. Not allowing the store to give bags away for free is not telling you anything. It is telling the store. Your crying about your pennies and the Government, then save your pennies and bring your own bags. Your products will cost less, if the savings are passed to the consumer. Go to another country and see what our world is realy like. It is very ugly, dirty,overpopulated. Everyone on this planet has to share the land and air, everything. I Bet your ass has never even left the USA. The Australian's can't buy bottled water. In most countries you can't drink water unless its bottled. Americans are spoilded brats. Sometimes its the Gov't job to protect us from us. How many people can sleep in one bed. Soon you have to change the sheets, will there always be enough? Even recycling uses resources, they are not infinite. Selfish!

Do you think in other countries they don't use bags to being home what they buy at the food stores? Are we the only country that doesn't walk home with food stacked on our heads? LOL

If they ban water, why not coke and Pepsi? Maybe they trust their tap water, here in USA I don't trust all the mercury leaking into the water from the old mines or the pesticides from farming in the tap water. Wonder why we have a high rate of cancer here? Keep drinking the tap water, it must be safe. LOL

The problem with your theory is that "the stores" are Government licensed entities. If you doubt that, just rent a storefront and start doing business. You would either refrain from doing business until you got Government licenses or otherwise end up in some rat infested Government prison.

As far as existing Government licensed stores reducing their prices after Government transfers the cost of providing grocery and goods from Government licensed stores to the overcharged consumer goes, consider the case of Long Beach. I have not surveyed retail outlets to any great extent. After all, Long Beachers were required to pay the Long Beach premium for goods and services even before the city imposed the Lowenthal grocery and goods bag harassment tax. I have, though, surveyed Government grocery stores. I have found that grocery prices INCREASED, rather than decreased after the Lowenthal harassment tax was imposed by local activists of the revolutionary ruling class.

As far as being packed like sardines goes, if the problem is overcrowding rather than the revolutionary ideologues,*(now in power)*, then why do the revolutionaries encourage greater migration? Hint: Greater population increases the cost of housing.*(for ordinary folks, housing is a cost, not "an investment")* This enables revolutionary Government to impose higher properties taxes on the population. This enables Government banks to impose a greater degree of indebted servitude on "the people" which, it is claimed "is good for the economy".
