I agree with Hmmm, we don't have a problem with plastic bags we have a problem with Litter Bugs, can't we find someone to pick them up? maybe someone not working or sitting at home waiting for their check to arrive?

Yes. You are right. Trendy "empty heads" *(so to speak)* like nothing better than to be seen by their wealthy upscale Democrat friends carrying dangerous disease spreading "reusable" grocery bags. They believe themselves to be clever for avoiding the Lowenthal grocery bag harassment tax. More astute observers, though, view those revolutionary activist approved, soil depleting, "reusable" grocery bags as a red-flag target that shouts out "HEY! I GOT SUCKERED INTO PAYING HEAVY STATE SALES TAX TO PURCHASE THIS THING."

Radical "taxpayer funded university trained" Long Beach political bosses have their work cut out for them at the Big Democrat convention. During a recent "peoples' street fair", a crowd, "mostly from a leftward bend" was seen openly flaunting revolutionary Council's war against competitive minded non-union grocers who provide decent overtaxed city residents with "consumer friendly" Lowenthal harassment tax-free grocery bags. According to an AP photo caption that was included in a recent "foreign source" investigative news report:

"A man uses a plastic trash bag for rain protection at the Carolina Fest street fair, on the eve of the Democratic National Convention (DNC) on September 3, 2012 in Charlotte, North Carolina"

As of this writing, it is not known whether the extremist "anti jobs" Long Beach delegation will walk out of the convention, or whether they will merely embarrass Obama with a noisy demonstration on the convention floor.

Just how do you think providing Lowenthal grocery bag harassment tax-free tree-destroying paper bags to the majority of Long Beachers who pay for their "free" food with taxpayer funded food stamps is going to "save the planet"?
