Yes. You are right. Non-Homosexual men drink Stolichnaya and other quality Russian vodka products while their Homosexual friends and the lesbians must be satisfied with cheap mass produced domestic brands. To each his own.

They wont ban these bags but they are sure to attached a "Fee" aka TAX
Its a lot like the $8.00 additional "Fee" you play when purchasing a LCD Screen. They say its a recycling charge but the last I knew there was no redemption centers to get your money back when the stupid thing dies.
I say start dumpling your plastic bags into the ocean. Lets the sea life consume it. Fish love getting stuck in it like a mini-vacation

Oh? You think that is dumb? How about the upfront mattress disposal fee that the California political ruling class is thinking of imposing on increasingly impoverished overtaxed Californians?

Environmentally friendly easily disposable grocery bag technology has been known in more inventive nations for many years. The fish love them, growing fat and sassy from eating corn based grocery bags. Such grocery bags also provide excellent mulch that can be used by backyard gardeners. The problem with requiring fat-cat Big Grocers to use them is that doing so would cut into the scam their pals - the political ruling class *("Liberals")*- is running.

As you may be aware, environmentally harmful disease spreading reusable grocery bags are heavily taxed in California. In addition, Lowenthal harassment taxes are imposed on the minority of overtaxed Long Beachers who not use expensive taxpayer provided food stamps.

Many non-gays won't drink Russian vodka; the issue is free speech and stopping demagogy, not homosexuality. Besides, Stoly isn't that good.

Here's another golden STUIPD nugget from the Republican, GOP, RNC and Tea Party brain cells.

"Republican" calls Obamacare tax on tanning salons 'racist' now if this don't beat all?

High level meeting took place over this statement and have resulted in the American public being reassured this is the reason they are not in charge anymore.

Looks like it may not happen for several decades either.

I got an Idea! how about we all buy red kids wagons like radio flyers, and go into stores and fill your grocery list. first you wouldn`t need grocery carts, that's an environmental savings, and then you wouldn`t need grocery bags, and you can walk home, get fresh air and save gas, save the environment.

The new Republican, Tea Party restrictive voting requirements bill, signed by "Republican" Gov. Pat McCrory, makes it harder for the elderly, minorities and low-income citizens to vote in the state.

This of course is another overt act by them confederate American hating rebels of the South.

Trashy people them Republicans.
