The Lowenthal grocery and goods bag harassment tax has been imposed on Long Beach shoppers and food eaters as an exercise in punitive taxation that is designed to implement loony social schemes that are promoted by the radical element that has effectively seized control of the city.

Now it can be revealed that recent studies prove the link between Lowenthal Government reusable grocery and goods bags and death. According to Hugh Pennington, emeritus professor of bacteriology at the University of Aberdeen:*(GB)

"'bags-for-life' should never be used to carry raw meat or vegetables with soil on them...

"bacteria can be transferred from the meat to the bag and then onto other products which are eaten raw - such as fruit - causing food poisoning...

"raw meat should be carried in plastic bags which are then binned...

"washing the bags or cleaning them with antibacterial sprays is not sufficient to remove the bacteria.

"washing them or using antibacterial sprays is not enough to kill the bacteria transferred to them by raw meat."

"You canít get the bugs out just by washing them Ė it will get rid of some of the bacteria, but not all of them."

Professor Pennington's comments come after a study by University of Pennsylvania revealed that "since San Francisco banned the use of plastic bags in 2007, hospitalisations and deaths from foodborne illnesses have nearly doubled".

I know the children will criticize me for reporting what is only common sense. The kiddies must learn, though, that most of the revolutionary ruling class *(now in power)* received their expensive taxpayer subsidized Government indoctrination in radical California indoctrination centers such as those at Berkeley and Long Beach.

After the arrival of the destructive 60s 70s era ruling class - along with their idiot "Love children", normal society tolerated them because they wrongly believed "they will outgrow it". This error of judgement must now be addressed.

Even high paid Government operatives are admitting that the end of the antibiotic era is at hand. The children could rest assured that were they to catch some horrible bacterium as a result of their "trendy" moms using Lowenthal grocery bags, a trip to the Government licensed doctor would result in a 10 day antibiotic regimen. Today, the reusable lowenthal grocery bag may be an agent of the grim reaper who is especially on the lookout for our innocent little children.

Nearly 1.5 Million Lose Health Insurance Due to ObamaCare, and you support obamaCare, what does that say about you?

the National Center for Public Policy Research discovered that 1.5 million insurance cancellations have already gone out. These cancellations are all due to the ObamaCare mandate that requires every health insurance policy meet a minimum requirement of a one-size-fits-all Cadillac plan that forces people to pay for coverage they neither want nor need.

Obamacare has made it so even the makers can't afford health care. All the doctors are running away and soon only the very rich will be able to afford real health care. The rest of us get the death panels. Obamacare was never meant for health care only government control over We the People.

Wait until your personal information gets hacked on one of these Obama Care websites. Then the problem of the bags will seem small.

You could be right. Despite previous Government denials, recent revaluations have revealed that all forms of "private" communications and records of the American people, are direct pipelines to prying Government ears and eyes. These pipelines are not limited to recorded telephone communications and American based social media and other Government controlled data gathering agencies such as banking and credit "reporting" agencies. No American knows who might get their hands on this "private" information. As violent home invasions become more and more commonplace in the nation - often resulting in the deaths of "owners" of Government controlled "private" homes - one can only wonder if Government "equal employment" laws are not being used as the latest means to transfer the modest "wealth" of increasingly overtaxed and impoverished taxpayers to the violent criminal underclass.

When your government legislates how you can bring groceries home from the store; you've got too much regulation and they are spending too much money.

Brian_G.

Yes. I agree. An even more recent example that is being promoted by Government licensed "news" media are Governmental efforts to force ordinary worker *("middle")* class Americans to buy forced Government mandated "health" insurance - or otherwise face confiscatory tax penalties that will eventually be imposed for "non-compliance". Like most Government schemes that have been devised since the clever - but disingenuous - self-serving 60s 70s revolutionaries came to power, the stated objective is not the true objective. In fact, this scheme - as well as other revolutionary schemes like it - is just another means to transfer what remains of the modest worth of the increasingly impoverished worker *("middle")* class to the obese "fat cat" tax eating class, the indolent so-called "poor".

In this instance, it might be said that food-fads and medical quackery have been a part of the nation's psyche even prior to the establishment of the nation itself. Most of those food-fads and medical quackery have done little damage to the American people because they have usually been short lived. Now that revolutionary Government charlatans have gotten in on the act, though, no one knows how much damage that will be done.

So bring your own bags. Inconvience maybe but remember your blessed by being born here in USA. Most of the people of the world would love to have only this small problem. Truth is we can no longer continue to use our home as a dumping ground. Too many people for that. How many people fit in one bed. Get it.
