ShawnDoc: I'm not homeless. (yet)
Bashar and Asma's Infinite Playlist: Or you could just throw the reusable bags in when you wash your supply of bootstraps.
Soup4Bonnie: They've gotten rid of plastic bags here in Seattle a while ago. Nobody has died yet.
Incog_Neeto: The My Little Pony Killer: Incog_Neeto: Soup4Bonnie: They've gotten rid of plastic bags here in Seattle a while ago. Nobody has died yet.Every time I go to visit my family in California the fact that I can't just buy something and put it in a farking bag is goddamn annoying as piss.You *know* that you need to bring your own bags, yet you don't and you still feel the need to complain about it on the internet? Are your initials D.S.?I remember after the first time I go out, however having to remember to bring my own bags isn't any less obnoxious. On the plus side it makes me keep an eye out for the same ineffective BS laws that anyone tries to pass around here.
skozlaw: I always get confused.... are these people rugged, boostrappy individualists who don't need no nanny state because they can take care of themselves.... or mincing pansies who think it's virtually the end times because they can't get hold of some plastic grocery bags and incandescent light bulbs?
The My Little Pony Killer: Well Debra Saunders, stop throwing your plastic bags all over the streets (and get your friends, neighbors, and the entire rest of the city to join you) and maybe nobody would consider banning the things.Seattle banned them a few years ago. People dealt with the fact that they're now either spending 5 cents for the privilege of bringing home more refuse with their groceries, or have manned up and gotten themselves the reusable bags. Nobody burst out into flames. Nobody was harmed by the legislation. Inconvenienced, sure, but we also don't have to walk along streets lined with plastic when we leave our homes.
Lionel Mandrake: subby, you misspelled Mississippi.
I heard the pancakes there STINK!
spongeboob: I am torn on plastic bags I hate that they end up in the middle of the ocean as they slowly photodegrade and end up in side of marine life. However I also walk 3 dogs so I need plastic bags to pick up their crap.
FilmBELOH20: I love the ocean probably more than anyone on fark, but I use the paper bags to start fires in my fireplace, and the plastic ones to clean up after the enormous amount of shiat that a German Shepherd and a Jack Russel Terrier manage to leave in the yard. Will never be a bag recycler - just can't see it happening.
The Third Man: I'm in Los Angeles today. It smells like an airport runway, jet fuel stenches in the cabin, and lights flickering at random.I'm in Los Angeles today. Garbage cans comprise the medians of freeways always creeping, even when the population's sleeping.
MrSteve007: FilmBELOH20: I love the ocean probably more than anyone on fark, but I use the paper bags to start fires in my fireplace, and the plastic ones to clean up after the enormous amount of shiat that a German Shepherd and a Jack Russel Terrier manage to leave in the yard. Will never be a bag recycler - just can't see it happening.[www.rei.com image 850x691]$8 a REI for 72 bags = that's $0.11 a bag, for fully compostable, non-plastic dog shiat bags.Surely if you can afford to feed a dog that large, you can afford not to fark up the planet with thousands of dog shiat filled plastic bags.
TheJoe03: The bag laws are pretty pointless and kind of annoying but it's really far down the list when it comes to asinine state/city laws. It's not like right wingers are champions for education, the homeless, and the unemployed, so what is this dumb broad talking about? This writer needs some perspective. In the end, despite our problems, California is still the best state in the US.
pxsteel: Umm. No it is not. Cali is beyond broke, people and business are fleeing in droves. I can think of at least 20 states I would rather be than Cali.
