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!

The revolutionary ruling class *(now in power)* has always despised the worker *("middle")* class because they were able to enjoy an unparalleled level of freedom, prosperity, and opportunity. During the revolution, they denigrated comfortable worker *("middle")* class housing as "tickey-tacks". The Lowenthal grocery and goods bag harassment tax is just one more nail in the coffin of the minority of ordinary worker class Americans who are suffered to pay Government taxes.*(those who use taxpayer funded food stamps to pay for their "free" food are exempt from paying the Lowenthal grocery and goods bag harassment tax)* And to think, it all began with Government's war against its own people - the many millions of women and men who enjoy the simple worker class pleasure of an occasional cigarette or cigar.

Willard Mitt Romney didn't implement a 2001 law designed to combat racial profiling by the police.

In 2006 the local NAACP slammed Romney for referring to a perennially unfinished public works project in Boston, the Big Dig, as a "tar baby."

Just what elese can you expect from a LDS educated racists!

The NAACP doesn't hold much credibility in this country. It's a race bait group. I think Ronald would agree. http://www.rollitup.org/legal-edge/432686-wha...

In this great state there are:
2 million people out of work (my hubby being one of them);
7 million people with no health insurance (my hubby and I being two of them);
40% of the state is on food stamps (including hubby and me);
three cities (Stockton, Mammoth Lakes and San Bernardino) have filed for Chapter 9 bankruptcy in the last thirty days with more to follow

and this is all they care about. Some plastic bags? Gimme an f-ing break. I don't know why they did away with paper bags anyway. I always ask for paper at the store.

Another big problem is loud music in clubs. I like to go out and watch my favorite rock or heavy metal band but the volume at some of these shows is just horrendous and can do damage to people who have sensitive hearing like m.

I think we should have a law that protects people from having to be exposed to these loud and harmful sounds. The FAA should mandate mufflers on any plane that creates a sound above 70 decibels.

It's just not fair that I can't go out and enjoy a night on the town without being exposed to dangerous levels of sound.

They should also ban these loud motorcycles that keep going up and down my street. And parents should NOT be allowed to have loud crying children in public. I think you should be given a citation if your child is crying or screaming in public for more than 30 seconds.

We need to make everyplace that I want to go safe for us with sensitive hearing. My doctor has told me that if I go into a boiler room for more than 3-4 hours my hearing can be permanently damaged and I may even go deaf. But I love boiler rooms and can't imagine not being able to be in one any longer.

PROTECT ME FROM GOING DEAF!!

PASS NOISE POLLUTION LAWS!!
