#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
