    Feel sorry for the stores that live on the borders where these things are still legal...

    This is pure idiocy. I did a report on this horseshit for an environmental science class, and it turns out that often paper bags and cloth bags are actually worse for the environment. Plus, no one ever washes these reusable bags, so they are germ and virus factories.

    You mean "undocumented workers"?

    The other way better refer to this guy or you're racist.

    I don't get the reason for this only applying in "unincorporated" parts of the county. How can they justify that, as opposed to a simple county-wide ordnance?

    They will have to pay 10 cents for a paper bag? Sounds like a new tax, oh well its California's own fault for voting in big government democrats. The people get what they deserve.

    The globalists are pleased with this development (except the ones who own the big plastic bag manufacturers)

    I guess I shouldn't have said democrats because Arnold was a big government republican.

    They get you hooked on something and then they say you can't have it or they tax you for it once you can't do without it.

    Yeah, plastic bags are actually better. You'd have to use those canvas bags 4 years straight to make up for the fact that it costs like 200 times the energy to make and are shipped from china. The vast majority of people just forget the things after they use them once. And you'd have to reuse a paper bag 3 times for every one plastic, which no one would ever do. Both take much longer to decompose than plastic bags.

    If they really wanted to improve the environment they'd build a wall around east LA

    I'm confused, how does affect the fact that their state is in like 10 billion dollars in debt and backrupt? If I were them, I would cut out all the frivolous bullshit and focus on getting the state back in shape.

    I don't have the exact figures available, Gloria, but I bet L.A. County uses several thousand plastic bags every day. Your hundreds of canvas bags aren't a pimple on the plastic bags' ass. But it makes you feel good, which is the main thing.
