Unless we want to become part of the fossil record several thousand years from now like many species that preceded us we had better start figuring out how we are going to survive what comes next.

Food, shelter, and everything else that we need for our existence will ultimately come from different sources as many plants and animals that we currently rely on will disappear and many places that we lived in will become unlivable.

That is just how it is.

Another dumb Liberal idea by the dumbest liberal state in the union. The bags aren't the problem, the dumb people that carelessly use them are. I return every single use plastic bag I use to the supermarket I shop at. It's called responsibility. This fricking state is becoming with all it's rules, and regulations, absolutely the least free state in the country.

I can't wait to get out of here, and I'm a native.

California, you can have it!

Why dont retailers use biodegradeable bags?
I agree...but brown paper bags can be recycled with cardboard and they do not blow around becoming an eye sore.

You are absolutely correct. We have not stood up for what is right in our country and because we have become used to what is handed to us instead of being informed on the facts we listen to the political base who is only interested in what is in it for themselves and their cronies. We need to see the true direction of those who say they are representing we the people. We truly need to have every politician take a lie detector test just to see if they can be honest and follow our constitution. I am disappointed in our leaders and would love to fire the majority of them. We need term limits.

This is OK with me.

IRS continues to hound Tea Party Patriots, demands more data for tax-exempt status, they are a bunch of Wall Street scammers anyway.

They all, Tea Party member's can go back to Russia at once.

Someone really needs to press Speaker of the House John Boehner about why House Republicans are taking their marching orders from a Texas Senator.

We elected Tea Party Republicans to Congress because we must cut wasteful government spending, repeal intrusive regulations and stop higher taxes. We don't like Obamacare, the House is just doing the job we elected them to do.

We've presented our continuing resolution; since the Senate has rejected it, Obama and Reid have to come up with a compromise that can pass the House. I'd like to see them do their job.
