Ben Gleck shows a chart that proves that this is as a result of dispirited Muslim leasbians, called Mussbians, who are living in waist deep angst and have developed a taste for the attention that they received when they came out demanding no showers in months whose names contain vowels. They won that won and now they are after our beloved bags. Bacjkground chex.
This is just plain awful. Why do you think they want to bathe all the time? Our next President BACHMAN has shown that if we allow anything then all will be brought to a halt and screeching halt too. This means that obanacare will cause waste to run the streets and the end of true evangelism as we want it only then. Now we can not allow nothing to pass until after the 2016 election when BACHMAn will then enter into the thousdand year reign of right thinking and we will all be armed and ready for stuff to just try to do stuff and then some to get those bums off the voting as they are not right thinking christians. Vote TEAPARTY and win this here.

And that's how it's spelt.
Now don't mix it up with other less powerful words.

Glenn Beck is a product of DRUGS, alcohol and more drugs and alcohol.

The left is good at vilifying opponents because their policies are terrible. If you have no rational arguments, using ad hominem arguments are your only course.

Please investigate the city of Glendora, CA the same way the city of Bell, CA was investigated.

This city is in serious jeopardy ever since a certain element took over and declared themselves KING, Douglas Tessitor, Chris Jeffers and D. Wayne Leech.

I created a petition to Governor Jerry Brown and President Barack Obama which says:

"Please sign my petition to President Obama and Governor Jerry Brown asking them to order a thorough investigation of the city of Glendora, California the same way the city of Bell, California was investigated."

Will you sign this petition? Click here: ...

Use of non-biodegradable plastic bags is probably prima facie evidence that the Senate is the corrupt beneficiary of the chemical/petroleum lobbyists. They have no place on the planet if they don't quickly dissolve into something innocuous.

Blind leading the blind in Glendora, California.

The puppet master has brought two feeble minions to the city council and has them posted as Mayor and Mayor pro tem.

Joseph Santoro and Judy Nelson - the real crooks on the city council have saddled these two boobs with the failure of the other three, Gene Murabito, Karen Davis and Douglas Tessitor.

Michelle Bachmann is our savior. She has proven to the satisfaction that the US of A was intended by the founding fathers to be the world's greatest ONLY THEOCRACY. There is no doubt. Governed by the BIBLE and by its interpreters who know what is what while the rest of us just wonder what is what and what we should be doing will be told to us. Bachmann has also proved that carbon dioxide is a natural gas and that natural gas is from god who made natural what it is and that the plants need natural gas and carbondioxide sure is gas and natural. You cant even smell it so it must be natural. The gas is needed by the plants so that they plant deep roots holding the surface of the earth in place so it doesnt fly off and this is gods plan and you cant argue with god by trying out unatural non-gassing wind power, solar power wave power or other power that does not use oil which produces carbon dioxide as is planned and the way of god. Nuclear power is okay, though for other reasons and plans that god has for us.

The children often ask me how revolutionary Council can get away with imposing Lowenthal grocery bag harassment taxes on the voting minority of increasingly impoverished "less free" Long Beachers who do not purchase groceries with expensive taxpayer funded food stamps. I always explain to the little kiddies that Long Beach is a hotbed of "new age" revolutionary political activism as a consequence of being home to one of the most radical of the State's incredibly expensive taxpayer funded Government universities.

I patiently explain to the increasingly concerned little tykes that failed social and economic programs that are dreamed up by overpaid and under worked taxpayer supported Government "professors" in those "anti taxpayer" Big Government institutions have resulted in "out-state migration" to "freer States".

I give as an example a recent study that was made by the George Mason University's Mercatus Center which was published by Investor's Daily That study shows the voting minority of Californians who pay taxes are fleeing to more free States. According to the study, California has become the number 2 "less free" State.(Please keep in mind that there are currently 50 States)

Now that home prices have risen, it's time to complete the foreclosures on those ghost accounts the banks have kept off the market and wrote off against huge banking profits in 2012 and 2013

Foreclosures have risen 9% since this time last year, a sign that lenders are moving to complete the process on homes that were stuck in the pipeline during the robo-signing scandal.

Now that the State of California has no effective opposition to its confiscatory tax policy, it's unlikely the Lowenthal grocery bag harassment tax can be confined to radical controlled Long Beach. Now that the State's pandering politicians have successfully created a voting majority of dangerous tax eaters and taxpayer supported Thug people, things will get ugly very fast.
