The only way Opie is fishing with Andy is if the little pin-head went to Mt. Ivy, NC and robbed the grave. Propping a corpse up against a tree is a serious crime. Don't say I didn't warn you, Dik-Head.

Actually, Opie couldn't care less. If he could care less, that would mean that he cares to some extent, and I don't think he does. At least that's the scuttlebutt I'm hearing in my shop.

Hi,
I am not sure what to do about the dance moms in our group. They get trashed and force the 42 year old pool boy at JCC to perform unspeakables while under the influence of stuff filched fropm their husband's practice. They have films of this and show them on the net. I want to be a member of Mischa's circle and be friends with the other moms so I can get them to do stuff for me, and protect Mischa but I don't want any video evidence of any potential acts I might perform to surface later. How shall I proceed, here?

Actually, there is a big difference between convenient plastic carry bags and tree killing paper carry bags. For example, some thrifty grocery shoppers evade paying the Lowenthal carry bag harassment tax by reusing plastic carry bags provided them while shopping in more "customer friendly" cities. When the shopper tries to get away with that in revolutionary Council controlled Long Beach, store security is immediately alerted by monitors of ever present spy cameras. Security then follows the shopper around, remarking some pleasantry to so the shopper is intimidated to "know he is being watched". This is particularly true of White shoppers who Council metes out the "just rewards" of retributive "justice" to for 500 years of enslaving the Africans.

Everyone knows Long Beach is home to one of the most radical of the entire Government university system.**(It seems the city's entire revolutionary ruling class use this unbelievably expensive taxpayer funded Government operated university as a means to "double" and "triple" dip.)** The plastic-paper "controversy" conforms to the revolutionary ideology that was developed, and which is actively promoted by rich taxpayer supported "professors" who indoctrinate the children in principles of revolutionary activism.

Incidentally, Issac. Recycling paper to make carry bags uses unbelievable amounts of scarce water resources, and heavily taxed cotton Lowenthal carry bags contribute to global warming because of the oil based fertilizer that must be put on the cotton growing fields.

There is a very simple solution to the bag problem. I've been doing it for several years now and it not only eliminates the bag pollution problem, but it also improves my health. When I go to the grocery store I try to park as close as I can to the entrance and then I leave the car doors unlocked. I'll usually be buying 20 or 30 items, so when I get ready to check out, I get in the line that's close to the exit door. As the checker is ringing up my items, I'll grab as many as I can hold and run from the checkout stand to my car and dump them on the floor; then run back inside to the checkout stand and grab another arm load and run back to the car. When everything is in the car, I go back inside and pay for my purchases. I always do my shopping at the same store, so they're familiar with my procedure and they're good with it. And when I say, "run," I'm not talking jogging, I'm talking full out sprinting. When I first started doing this, I weighed 147 pounds. Now I weigh 113 pounds. So you see, I look fit and I get a good Cardio workout and perspire a bit on warm days while helping to keep the environment clean. If I can do that (I'm a 43 year old woman) then you can do it too. Just be careful. I accidently knocked down an elderly lady on one occasion and we don't want to be doing that.
