That's great if you wash your bags after every single use to make it contaminate free. But then you are using excess water and detergents. And you still have to use plastic bags for your meats and vegetables or you risk cross contamination from the other things you buy like cans or containers that might have contamination on them. Why don't you set up a team to go out and pick up those bags that blew out of the G-Truck?

For all the unfortunate residents who live near the City of Vernon, California.

That have been told that some "Crack Head Judge" has allowed the battery recycling plant "Exide Batteries" to reopen after it was shut down for contaminating the area with Arsenic, Lead and Acids.

Hundreds of health issues and deaths are attributed to the battery recycling plant in Vernon, California.

The Judge who signed the back to work order for this plant doesn't live anywhere near the dangerous toxic emission either.

The City Manager and Fire Chief of Vernon California lives in Glendora, California where is his morality and religion?

Since a large population of minorities live in the surrounding cities etc. just goes to prove the City of Vernon and the L.A. City Council doesn't either don't really care about them at all.

Another emergency order can be had to over ride and shut down the Exide Battery plant down, politician's get off your brain you sit on all day.

I remember when plastic bags first started. We were told then that we were saving trees by not using paper. There is always a new schtick.

Of course Judge Luis A. Lavin said the public interest would not suffer if the plant were to operate in the meantime?

Has this judge lost all the brain cells in his head?

This of course is America and we are still talking about California, since California leads the nation in doing what's right.

A crack-pot posted a ignorant message, who still can't get a light turned on between his or hers ears!

Poster #4759 doesn't live near the Exide battery destruction plant, the ignorance of this poster is beyond belief. This poster is a flaming bull SWAT ARTIST.

You have NOT provided anything except for your stupidity to prove that anyone, let alone "HUNDREDS" have died from this battery recycler!!! So why don't you, you liberal freak, go and scream to the world for abortion rights (AKA murder of innocent children) and then come back and tell us all more of your lies about caring for peoples lives!!!
Or you could do the whole world a really big favor and just STFU!!!!

I bet that you are a staunch supporter of electric (coal powered) cars? And I bet that you aren't even smart enough to know that they are BATTERY powered? And that these globe saving electric (coal powered) will have to dispose of these batteries when they are used up!

Yes... liberalism is a SERIOUS mental disorder, of stupid reactionary non-thinkers!!!

Obama's wife has been on an ever escalating campaign designed to harass the White population into "getting moving", under the theory that a person's weight is the business of bloated Big Government. The more radical of California revolutionary occupied cities - such as Long Beach - have acted on this campaign by requiring moneys that would otherwise have been used to provide food for hungry White children be used to pay for heavily taxed trendy "reusable" grocery bags.

It is well recognized that tobacco is an excellent appetite suppressant. The increase in obesity rates are in perfect alignment with Big Government's war against decent worker **("middle")** class Americans who enjoy the simple pleasure of an occasional tobacco product.

According to THE LAW! that revolutionary Council imposed to enable its war against hungry shoppers who had enjoyed the simple convenience of being provided free grocery bags by overpricing unionized Council controlled Big Grocers, anyone not using expensive taxpayer funded food stamps must pay the Lowenthal grocery and goods bag harassment tax.

Now it can be revealed that "Blacks" are more overweight than White people. Only 26 percent of white women, but 41 percent of "Black" females are obese. In men, 29 percent are obese but 33 percent of "Black" males are overweight.

Rather than harassing White women and White men, and if Big Government insists in poking its nose into every conceivable aspect of Big Government controlled "private" lives, wouldn't it be a better use of hard earned taxpayer money were Obama's wife to conduct a war against expensive taxpayer funded food stamps?

When shown aws a lying liberal reactionary idot? Always go to your book fort liberal dummies!!!

Alinsky's "Rules for Radicals" for dummies.

RULE 5: "Ridicule is man's most potent weapon." There is no defense. It's irrational. It's infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions.(Pretty crude, rude and mean, huh? They want to create anger and fear.)

Good job spineless lemming liberal dope!!!
