You know why so many Glendora, California politicans and their friends hate " TOPIX.COM , right?

Things get said here that nobody else will print.

The truth is their worst enemy, and that is what you get here.

But then you get nasty posting blogers who rant and rave, threated posters etc. typical Glendora Racists etc.

The Glendora Police Department knows who they are bu they are told by City Hall officials and City Council member's not to stop them from posting threatening messages.

But just maybe the Police are involved deeper then before?

Two and one half cheers for Long Beach Councilman Gerrie Schipske! Studies have shown that "reusable" grocery bags that are used by trendy "upscale" Long Beachers are a source for spreading dangerous E.Coli and other bacteria which cause serious illness and infection.

Despite the fact that local unionized grocery stores endanger food shoppers with grocery cart "child seats" that are a primary source for the spreading of fecal matter contamination, revolutionary Council voted to criminalize competitive minded non-unionized grocers who provide "safe and healthy" plastic grocery bags to their customers. Gerrie (a professional health care worker) voted against such criminalization.

Scientific health studies that have been conducted in more health minded cities. Those studies warn against the use of dangerous filthy disease spreading porous "reusable" grocery bags. Although Gerrie now believes the use of hard earned taxpayer money should be used to "educate" trendy users of reusable grocery bags - good luck to that - she should be commended by all health loving Long Beachers.

My GRANMA is mebbe gay. I know this because she hides inn the shower when frends come over and she watches them take craps from the shower stall. They dont go in the stall, they go in the pot , but she is hididng in the stall when they are on the pot and takes pix and she is also shaving some parts of her body as I have seen raszors in the trash. This proves something and she is upset over the pix of the Pope doing those things in the steam room in Italy and says she could she her a thing or four, whatever that means. I sure dont think old folks should look at the NET because they get upset when they see this stuff. SOOOOOO WHAT?

THIS CAN ONLY BE TRUE IF THEY ARE USING THE BAGS FOR PERSONAL elimination poops. Balancing in the car park with ass out over a bag can prove a health risk. Washing the bag from collected poo is a must. Peeing in the bags makes them soggy and causes the LOGO to run. Think this through, do.

You make a valid point, but I worry more about trendy "high class" AIDS infected prostitutes using reusable grocery bags to store their used tampons than I worry about disease spreading baby fecal matter on grocery cart kiddy seats.

Join us in the Teaparty. We have all the seats we need now and with the new voting rights strategy we will insure that only like minded voters vote anymore so the thing is in, and will stay in, the bag. With this block we can so end all the programs that offend and irritate and annoy by simply continuing the death of a thousand cuts to satanist medicare, godless unemployment insurance, the devil's own gay and lesbian socialist security and truly evil minimum wage and universities that study things that dont matter and are confusing and contradict god's word with accents. Yay, Yay!!!
