My cousin was a hemophiliac and was recently wounded by a poke from a pencil my senile grandmother stabbed him with. He went to the doctor and previous to the visit, he had not known he was a hemophiliac because, strangely enough, he had never been punctured or cut before. He cleans and puts a band-aid on his wound and sends him on his way. After a few minutes of leaving the doctors office, he notices blood spewing out from the band-aid. He went back in and he replaced the band-aid with another, stuffed some cotton underneath and sent h on his way. An hour later the blood spewed from beneath the cotton and band-aid, so he went back again and this time, he put more cotton, a bigger band aid and wrapped his arm with electrical tape. After a day, the blood, again, started leaking out from beneath the electrical tape. Again, back to the quack doctor. This time he poured an adhesive for skin onto his wound, cottoned, bandaged and taped his arm and it took a month before the blood made its way through the tape. My God... after months and months back and forth to this idiot doctor, my cousin appeared at my house. I was mesmerized by the gargantuan mass of electrical tape wrapped around my cousin's arm! Maybe as wide as a compact car tire... A little trickle of blood dripping from the bottom of it. My cousin died from hemophilia.

As vivid as the gas flares in the Texas sky at night, however, is America’s new-found love affair with fracking. Environmentalists warn loudly of water contamination disasters and some home owners speak of being rattled by man-made earthquakes, but there is no giving it up now. It’s a whole different world to 2008, when US oil production was at a historical low and Sarah Palin was drawing liberal ire declaring that “Drill, Baby Drill!” was the answer to all of America’s problems. Suddenly she seems to have been right.

The banning of single use paper bags from being given out for free is a definitely a step in the right direction. Plastic bags are given out too freely now, with cashiers putting every thing in a bag, even single items like an apple or a banana. 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. The majority of the plastic bags used are not even recycled and instead sent to landfills, or worse, they wind up on beaches, roads, and sidewalks. Not to mention the thousands of blastic bags flouting in the ocean and consequentially effecting marine life.
This new law is going is the first step in making California and plastic-bag-free state.

Ever since the dysfunctional elderly 60s 70s generation *(druggies)**(now in power)* arrived on the scene, they have promoted the absurd notion that the world has reached its greatest potential for advancement. Meanwhile, scientists in less superstitious, but more entrepreneurial, cultures have been busy creating the future.

One such innovation is to recycle plastic grocery bags and other plastic material as sources for fuel.*(oil is used to produce these convenient socially beneficial items.)*

Because the sex centered centered 60s 70s generation refused to abide with any norms of civilized society, Big Government - of necessity - decided to socialize them so that they would become effete dependencies of Big Government.

One example of the outcome of this social control experiment is that elderly 60s 70s era dependencies often complain that plastic grocery bags are blown by the wind throughout their neighborhoods. They endlessly complain that they are powerless to do anything about it. By contrast, the more self-sufficient pre-60s 70s era generation merely picked those bags up and deposited them in the trash bin. This is a powerful argument against the idea that society is on an upward path of lineal progression to a higher state.
