#1 Legislators Consider Ban on Plastic Shopping Bags01-22-2009, 04:35 PM
If they pass this - I say we do like Glenn Back orchestrated for Gavin Dumbass in San Fagcisco - we box up all of our plastic bags and mail them to the idiot who originated the legislation.y Anita Kumar

RICHMOND -- Virginia might once and for all put an end to that nagging question: Paper or plastic?
Legislators are considering banning plastic bags at grocery stores and chain retailers such as Target and Wal-Mart because of their potential harm to the environment.
The ubiquitous bags are blamed for choking birds and fish, floating into trees, rooftops and streets and sticking around years longer than paper.
"We're wasting energy. We're polluting," said Del. Adam P. Ebbin (D-Alexandria).
Virginia is not known for progressive environmental policy, but some lawmakers want to help the state find a place in the green movement.Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

So can I send all the dog shit that I put into those bags to this guys house, so he can dispose of it?
How many people will be put out of jobs because of this decision I wonder?

I don't really have many plastic bags to send. We already use canvas bags. :o

What can I say? I do most of my grocery shopping at one of those organic farmer's market type of places. I believe they will actually just throw your food on the floor and beat you if you don't have your own bags. :p

I reuse plastic grocery bags for so many things-to line my bathroom waste basket, to carry my wet swimming suit home from the pool, to bring baked goods to church and work, and so on.
Plus, autistic kids love to wave plastic shopping bags around. They're shiny and all. We should never deprive them of harmless activities that give them pleasure.

Replace all those plastic bags with bags made from hemp.The 21st century. The age of Smart phones and Stupid people.
It is said that branches draw their life from the vine. Each is separate yet all are one as they share one life giving stem . The Bible tells us we are called to a similar union in life, our lives with the life of God. We are incorporated into him; made sharers in his life. Apart from this union we can do nothing.
