Egbert.Stop whining get a shopping bag. Sick of seeing all these plastic bags blowing around cal-city.The manufactures of plastic bags could change to making reusable ones.
The anti-plastic grocery bag user Lowenthal grocery and goods bag harassment tax scheme had its genius in Long Beach. Long Beach is home to one of the Government's most radical of the taxpayer funded State universities. They use hard earned taxpayer money to come up with all kinds of loony ideas of this nature. The accommodative Long Beach political ruling class then enacts those distopian ideas into law.
The Lowenthal grocery and goods bag tax that is imposed on the minority of city residents who pay taxes is just one of their nutty taxpayer funded ideas.*(The Lowenthal grocery and goods bag harassment tax is not imposed on the voting majority who pay for their "free" groceries with taxpayer funded food stamps)*
One of the problems of all this "community activism" *(so to speak)* is that our one time community of self-governing free-men have become too fearful to act unless dictated to by the revolutionary ruling class. Instead of becoming "sick" from seeing all the plastic bags blowing around your city *(as you "claim")* why not just pick them up and deposit them in a taxpayer funded Government trash bin? Let us join with the sugar and salt eaters, the beverage drinkers, and the planet destroying global warming causing toilet paper users to defeat Fascism. United in fraternal brotherhood , we can WIN!
