No don't you remember that room was moved across the court yard at the other end of the house and up stairs. Use the elevator it's faster than the stairs.

Glendora, California doesn't care that the rest of the state of California has a water problem nor the rest of the country for that matter. The city has allowed 9,360,000 per year to wash down it's gutters and into concrete flood control channels. Of course the reader has to understand this only ONE of many "water wasters" the city of Glendora has allowed to continues this practice for years unaffected or asked to stop.

Glendora currently is in a Stage 1 water drought alert with water usage rules in effect, they should be in a Stage 2 to reflect the reality of Southern California and California as a whole. By declaring a Stage 2 water usage restriction alert they might have to stop their grand building plans numbering over 450 apartment, condos and houses in motion to be built thus putting a further strain on water supplies.

City council members, city manager, city department heads and city attorney all do not care one eye oat ta, being that they are 1% and the cost of the water means nothing to them at all, besides they have purchased more water from resources outside the city limits. Even a board member of Three Valley Water doesn't care either, Ex-city council member and Mayor Bob Kuhn - he just laughs the issue away.

Of course Bob Kuhn was removed from elected office after he incurred a fine of $2.0 million dollars against the city, the tax payers had to pay for his illegal actions.

So while other cities worry Glendora officials allow water waster to walk away free and punish little old ladies and men who are living on fixed incomes.

Since 2005, Israel has opened four desalination plants, with a fifth set to go online later this year. Roughly 35 percent of Israel's drinking-quality water now comes from desalination. That number is expected to exceed 40 percent by next year and hit 70 percent in 2050.

Ever the clever ones, the Africans have found new uses for "reusable" Lowenthal harassment tax carry bags. Identified as "youth", and "young people", by Government "news" these "children" are arming themselves with Lowenthal bags and then swarming retail stores. The "kids" then fill their Lowenthal bags before beating a hasty retreat - taking care to bypass the check-out counter as they leave. This apparently is being done in response to 400 years of enslavement.

Here is a link to a televised video report showing these freedom fighters in action. The story was linked to by Drudge.

Ban single bag use of plastic bags is ridiculous! My city has banned them and customers have to pay .10 cents for paper bags which does not go to the store. I absolutely refuse to pay for a bag when I am the one shopping in that store. I go to another supermarket 3 miles (same supermarket but in different area) to avoid this. Yes, I'm hardheaded. What I don't understand is the use of the so-called one time use bag in the store itself.
I'm referring to plastic bags used to hold your meats, vegetables, fruits and other items. What about those?

Ever since the 60s 70s era revolutionaries came to power, no one has ever accused them of being consistent. Incidentally, by virtue of Long Beach being home to one of the most radical of the incredibly expensive taxpayer supported Government universities it is the center of revolutionary activism. The city's "double dipping" activists hope to bring under Government control the "freedom of choice" you now have to patronize grocery stores that provide the simple convenience of free grocery carry bags. These radicals want to impose the Lowenthal harassment tax on all California residents who do not use expensive taxpayer provided food stamps.

Hey you idiot Covina, DEMOCRATS are responsible for things like this. YOU'RE the idiot that thinks men are causing climate change with no proof. This is what comes from that asinine reasoning. We all know republicans are bad, but democrats aren't any better. You're an even larger fool than both you pathetic squirt.

If we don't worry why should you, is there something you don't understand about the big plan?

You have no plan. You're completely incompetent. Regardless, we need to take nuclear and hemp power far more seriously if we hope to survive as a species. We won't, though. We'll keep getting even more massive debt until the collapse and World War III.
