You know why so many Glendora, California politicans and their friends hate " TOPIX.COM , right?

Things get said here that nobody else will print.

The truth is their worst enemy, and that is what you get here.

But then you get nasty posting blogers who rant and rave, threated posters etc. typical Glendora Racists etc.

The Glendora Police Department knows who they are bu they are told by City Hall officials and City Council member's not to stop them from posting threatening messages.

But just maybe the Police are involved deeper then before?

Two and one half cheers for Long Beach Councilman Gerrie Schipske! Studies have shown that "reusable" grocery bags that are used by trendy "upscale" Long Beachers are a source for spreading dangerous E.Coli and other bacteria which cause serious illness and infection.

Despite the fact that local unionized grocery stores endanger food shoppers with grocery cart "child seats" that are a primary source for the spreading of fecal matter contamination, revolutionary Council voted to criminalize competitive minded non-unionized grocers who provide "safe and healthy" plastic grocery bags to their customers. Gerrie (a professional health care worker) voted against such criminalization.

Scientific health studies that have been conducted in more health minded cities. Those studies warn against the use of dangerous filthy disease spreading porous "reusable" grocery bags. Although Gerrie now believes the use of hard earned taxpayer money should be used to "educate" trendy users of reusable grocery bags - good luck to that - she should be commended by all health loving Long Beachers.

My GRANMA is mebbe gay. I know this because she hides inn the shower when frends come over and she watches them take craps from the shower stall. They dont go in the stall, they go in the pot , but she is hididng in the stall when they are on the pot and takes pix and she is also shaving some parts of her body as I have seen raszors in the trash. This proves something and she is upset over the pix of the Pope doing those things in the steam room in Italy and says she could she her a thing or four, whatever that means. I sure dont think old folks should look at the NET because they get upset when they see this stuff. SOOOOOO WHAT?

THIS CAN ONLY BE TRUE IF THEY ARE USING THE BAGS FOR PERSONAL elimination poops. Balancing in the car park with ass out over a bag can prove a health risk. Washing the bag from collected poo is a must. Peeing in the bags makes them soggy and causes the LOGO to run. Think this through, do.

You make a valid point, but I worry more about trendy "high class" AIDS infected prostitutes using reusable grocery bags to store their used tampons than I worry about disease spreading baby fecal matter on grocery cart kiddy seats.

Join us in the Teaparty. We have all the seats we need now and with the new voting rights strategy we will insure that only like minded voters vote anymore so the thing is in, and will stay in, the bag. With this block we can so end all the programs that offend and irritate and annoy by simply continuing the death of a thousand cuts to satanist medicare, godless unemployment insurance, the devil's own gay and lesbian socialist security and truly evil minimum wage and universities that study things that dont matter and are confusing and contradict god's word with accents. Yay, Yay!!!

Here is a link to a good article linked by "public health minded" Drudge. The article was published by "Seattle PI". The article describes the health and theft problems created in cities where revolutionary Councils have seized control, only to have criminalized competitive minded non-union grocery store owners who would offer the common sense convenience of providing free grocery bags to non-welfare grocery shoppers.

The article cites the soaring rates of theft and in the number of E. coli cases. It describes studies that report the increase of horrible - often painful - deaths and debilitating illness from grocery bags and those trendy "carriers" who - while that may not show symptoms themselves - go on to infect others. The cost is more often as not paid for in the form of revolutionary Council mandated taxpayer subsidized hospital emergency room treatment.

The article goes on to state:

"Another paper from 2011 found E. coli in 8 percent of all reusable bags from randomly selected individuals at California and Arizona grocery stores. Washing the bags eliminated 99.9 percent of the pathogens, according to that study – though it raised questions of how often shoppers actually do."

Long Beach is home to one of the most radical of the unbelievably expensive of the taxpayer supported State university system - probably second only to "Liberal" Berkley. It is at these radical controlled Government controlled institutions where looney ideas such as this are cooked up. Because of the stranglehold the "educated" revolutionary ruling elite has on revolutionary controlled Long Beach, it's unlikely that any area Government licensed publisher would chance earning the wrath of revolutionary Councils by publishing the truth about dangerous reusable grocery bags. In fact, were they able to do so, Council would likely stop such information being disseminated at the city limit.

Let us be thankful for the internet. Until Central Government (the so-called "BIG") is able to gain complete internet control, the increasingly impoverished tax paying voting minority in "entitlement minded, Revolutionary controlled" Long Beach can still read what is being said in free America.

You Agree. People are saying that this shows that the real plan behind this movement is to continue the commodification, the "a-la-carte" of all of our lives so that some sob can charge us piece by piece for each and every step and breath in the day's doing in which all parts of existence of life are to become coin operated . They say That is why the Pope was forced into exile with his sweety. He knew this horror to be true and was going to speak on the matter but when the curia secreta overheard through their taping of his words in the secretly microphoned compartments and rooms where he rehearsed the speech with Gauwein, they knew they had to stop him. Apparently they allowed him to bow out with Gauwein, rather than ending his reign in the more standard fashion with the poisoned cup. The WHY remains a fake mystery.

Who gives a hoot about an issue that was already a done deal from the beginning.

Except the ignorant didn't know what they were disagreeing with.
