My Word, Ban the Bag! Zevcialism Comes to LA County!


Los Angeles County has become the largest U.S. municipality to ban plastic shopping bags. Although the ban, approved earlier today, will cover about 1.1 million residents, it pertains only to unincorporated areas and not to Los Angeles itself and 87 other cities in the county, the Los Angeles Times says.

"Waah, waah, waah," is the cry from the fat blogger who has eaten more groceries than anyone in the neighborhood.

Damn these Nanny Staters!

Somebody needs to sue to put these Socialists back in their place.

We are a free people. We will use a plastic bag anytime we damn well please.

Phil, since you decided to chime in on this intellectual dishonesty, why don't you tell us where you've been a professional "POLITICAL CONSULTANT."

Just one example of how this has been your career, and I won't ask again. Did you pay yourself for the Recall City Hall project?

I would normally say that Phil should do the suing he's demanding we do.

But then I remembered that Phil dropped out of law school in year one, just like he quit the Recall on day one!

Ha ha ha
lol
good one!

Phil,

You recently said that the "news" re Frank Sheftel was "only available on TJR."

Doesn't appear to be the case.

Wrong again, Mr. Political Consultant.

Great job supervisors! Let's hope the LA City Council follows suit.

Mayor Sam,
It is unfair to let Phil Jennerjahn make comments on this blog when he refuses to allow comments on his own.

8:05pm, I wouldn't mind Phil making comments here PROVIDED THAT HIGBY demand that Phil explain how his career is "Political Consultant."

He lied on his campaign form, and I encourage everyone to file a complaint with the Clerk's office; Ethics Commission; and let idiot LaBonge know.

If we're going to have an idiot in that office, we might as well have one who people like or who at least knows something about the city. And who doesn't steal Recall City Hall money and go GAMBLING with it.

You've just seen Zev's first move at making a run to become LA's next Mayor. He will have the unwavering support of LA's westside limo liberals for taking a stand against "big plastic."

Jan Perry has to be spitting blood tonight, she's seeing her tenuous grasp on the westside slipping away as Zev outmaneuvered her quite brilliantly.

Maybe Jan can pull something out of the hat by showing just how serious she is about hamburgers and trying to stop AEG from letting Johnny Rockets from opening up at LA Live?

Yeah Jan, see let's see how that one goes for you?

Mark my words, Zev's serious about replacing LA's Failure and Perry's gonna have a hissy fit. Maybe she'll try to schelp Obama out to LA to support her? Or maybe, with Zev looking like a shoe in, AEG will dump Perry like a sack of potatoes?

First the government told us to use those plastic bags to save trees and not use paper bags.

Now the government is telling us not to use plastic bags. Why don't they make up their minds or let people have the freedom to make up their own minds.

Government is all about taking people's freedom's away, at least that is the Democrats goal.

It is about time and congrats to the sups for doing this. Go on a LA River cleanup sometime and then wonder why they did not do it sooner. Or just watch all the ones blowing around in the wind. The stuff almost never degrades or become part of the soil humus so go back to paper and better yet carry your own bags and reuse.

Dear Phil Obsessive Person:

OK, we get it. You don't have to keep repeating the same complaints you have about Phil at every opportunity. This isn't a situation in which the more times you keep repeating the same thing anything is going to change.

You're becoming a bigger irritant than Phil himself and that takes some doing.

Reusable grocery bags must be washed after every trip to the store.

Gee, let's see - waste water on washing the bags or use plastic? What's a sprout-munching, enviro-nazi to do? I know! I'll consult my Jesus sandals. I'll make sure the entire state has to abide by their decision.

Oh - and the reusable bags contain lead, too. Yum!

12:53 is right about how reusable bags carry disease, possibly deadly amounts of bacteria that causes e-coli, salmonella and more.

Haven't you limo libs and bohemian libs (talking to you Joe B) been paying attention, now that that obvious fact is all over the news?

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that when you mix meat juices (meaning BLOOD), milk and dairy products and produce in one bag, the result is a disgusting mix of detritus that will make you sick.

All this p.c. crap without the appropriate warnings will make people sick and some will sue.

Charge a few pennies per bag maybe like they do in Europe to encourage people to reuse them until they're worn or dirty.

Many of us reuse them for trash, cat litter and packing stuff. We're not all slobs who throw them in the street but we will all be punished.

Easy for the single person or couple who shops little but bad for families.

First Jan bans hamburgers, the Zev bans plastic bags, what's next? What will Garcetti think of to ban?
