It's easy to tell that you are not the real Ronald from Long Beach, because the real Ronald does not respond to the inane ramblings of the disruptive taxpayer supported schizophrenic from Azusa/Covina.

another REASON NOT TO DO BUSINESS WITH communist china:

Starnes had said HE arrived in Beijing last week to lay off the last 30 people, Workers in other divisions started demanding similar severance packages.

About 80 workers at the plant blocked exits since then. At the beginning of his captivity, he said, they had deprived him of sleep by shining bright lights and banging on windows of his office.

What else do you expect from Communists - never trust them an inch.

According to The National Bureau of Economic Research, another oppressive Government tax should be imposed on the increasingly impoverished minority of Americans who actually pay taxes. This time the Orwellian justification is "to fight obesity".

Long Beachers are at the epicenter of the revolutionary movement. They are keenly aware of just how this latest call to escalate the war against the taxpayer would be conducted. The Lowenthal grocery bag harassment tax is probably the best example.

Hungry grocery eaters who purchase groceries in unionized Council controlled Long Beach grocery stores are charged a harassment tax that - as "the program" becomes "old news" - is expected to escalate to a level that causes real pain. Meanwhile, the voting majority of dangerous tax eaters and taxpayer supported Thug people are, and will continue to be, provided "free" grocery carry bags, the cost of which is incorporated into the price of food that is charged the minority of Long Beachers who do not purchase their groceries with expensive taxpayer funded food stamps.

The obesity "epidemic" is the consequence of pandering Government politicians laundering hard earned taxpayer money to provide "free food" to the voting majority.

The National Bureau of Economic Research is a wealthy Government tax-free "non profit" organization that escapes taxation for moneys used to pay the operators of that organization.

Herewith is a link to the financial statement of The National Bureau of Economic Research. Note the revenue entry of $35,066,696 that is stated - but not broken down - as "Grants and contracts". Presumably "Grants" in that context includes hard earned taxpayer money, either in the form of direct "grants", as well as tax deductible "contributions" from wealthy business operators.

It's about time that SoCal Edison got rid of the TWIN death reactors.

San Onofre nuclear power plant are laying off 600 employees as the troubled facility begins to shut down for good. About 400 employees will remain to continue the shutdown, which could take years.

The twin reactors were shut down last year and remained closed after the discovery of excessive wear in pipes that carry radioactive water, along with a potential for further environmental destruction to take place.

Good point. Although Government tax-exempt "Christian" churches will gradually "come around" to embrace Big Government's efforts to impose Homosexuality on the nation, it is unlikely the Taliban will.

As a Ronald wannabe from Long Beach, please answer us this. We note this morning you have been going bonkers on the Homosexual thread. Have you been "medicating" on illegal substances revolutionary Council attempted to "legalize" through the back-door "regulatory" route, or are you taking your usual dangerous drugs that were prescribed you by your Government "doctor"?

They are not called "lawmakers" for no reason. All they do is pass more laws, about 800 to 900 every year! Plastic bags is a great convenience to all of us. We use them and reuse them. So who cares if they remain in the landfill for a hundred years? Like plastic bags is the only plastic that ends up in the landfill? What needs to be focused on are the slobs in this country who show no respect for the place where we all live. It's not only plastic bags that get strewn on the beaches and along our roadways. Our roadways resemble endless garbage dumps. Slobs are responsible for the mess we are in. Banning plastic bags in certain stores will accomplish nothing regarding the over-all attitudes of slobs who just don't give a damn. These same slobs help elect the dumb stupid "lawmakers" who have no concept of common sense and logic.
