The Lowenthal gang conspired to turn over taxpayer owned and maintained public sidewalks and public motor vehicle roadways to their overcharging Big Coffee mogul pals - the so-called "Bigs".

Elderly widow ladies have finally gotten the chance to vote their feelings over being terrorized on increasingly cluttered narrow Long Beach sidewalks by violence prone skateboard drivers of color and unruly unlicensed, untaxed, and uninsured bicycle drivers.

Let's volunteer to take a silver haired granny to the polls this election day. Until the grannies are free from spreading Lowenthalism no one else will be either.

Whenever I'm asked,'Plastic or paper?', I ask for plastic. I keep them in a plastic bag, beneath my sink. When the bag gets full, I do a little experimental test; I take them to the barbecue pit and set them on fire.

I'm trying to detect a climate warming signal, but so far no luck. The most significant result; my neighbors don't like the smell.

Isn't that why we elect these politicians in the first place? To sit around and dream up new things to tax us for? So the politicians can turn around and use that new tax money to pay the parasites who elect these lawmakers? It's called a circle jerk. And California has a record number of jerks and jerk-offs in office.

I switched to using my own bags about 3 years ago and I like the change. Why? Because there is a lot less clutter and bags to throw away. Also the reusable eco-bags are made better and are stiffer. Moisture doesn't soak through them.

Also, some stores give you a discount on each personally owned bag you use. It's not much, but it adds up. All of the bags I purchased (5), paid for themselves within a month.

We are being over run by undocumented illegal alien scum and Americas idiots can only think about plastic bags. who on earth is in back of all of this. If its just a handful of people then we need to get rid of them now. IDIOTS. Id like to see the mayor of Los Angeles get replaced by an American.

Republicans, GOP and Teas Party members all seem to be in HEAT, and they want to just go out a screw someone to make up for their 2012 election losses.

I've worked as a cashier, customer bags are filthy. It's far easier and more hygienic to use the store's plastic bags.

It's just a scheme to make you buy bags. You're not saving the planet, you're lining someone's wallet.
