Meet the "Nanny Spud" of the Los Angeles City Clowncil Central Committee Paul "Mr. Potato Head" Koretz, who's ban on "Single Use Plastic Bags (allegedly)", is countered via a past common sense rebuttal by South LA Columnist Betty Pleasant.

Great Tuesday morning to all as the sun rises on another day in the Sanctuary, Nanny Collective of Cuidad de Los Angeles.
Its this blogger's daily habit in the early A.M. to trek to the local store to purchase a copy of the daily "Old Gray Collectivist Hag on Spring Street" (aka LA Times) and other assorted items of need, which make its way back home in a supposed "Single Use Plastic Bag". But come January 1, 2014, that will change.
The Westside "Nanny Spud", siding with his Eco-fascists supporters and fellow Clowncil Central Committee Members, in decreeing yet another act of behavior modification upon the citizens of Los Angeles, thinks he and his cohorts are protecting the planet by denying you free plastic bags.
But after New Years, from Sylmar to San Pedro, between Pacific Palisades to the corner liquor store on Warwick and Alhambra Road near the Alhambra boundary, the daily shopping habits of all, will change big time (or cost you a "sin fee" if you can't break your plastic habit).
"The Los Angeles City Council did Wednesday what the Board of Supervisors did earlier — voted to ban single-use plastic bags from the marketplace. I knew they would, because the city always copies the county. But I’m ready. I’ve been hoarding plastic bags ever since the county enacted its measure. I need those bags. I have three beautiful cats and I dispose of their dirty cat litter in those bag. In anticipation of Wednesday’s move by the city, I have amassed a barrel full of plastic bags which I keep in my garage. My cats and I will not be denied plastic waste disposal bags. (I’m just glad I don’t have dogs.)"
The Sister Soulvine Columnist has a point, its true that the "Nanny Spud" was jumping on the "Ban Bag Bandwagon" by crafting this copy cat behavior modification decree, but one must ask where is "Pototo Head Koretz" in lauding those Angelinos who find common sense ways of decreasing their supposed carbon footprint by simple acts of recycling plastic bags for other household needs? (** BTW, our household increases the supposed, single use life span of plastic bags by a multiple of at least three).
To the contrary, the "Nanny Spud" instead of lauding common sense solutions, now wants the city to produce reusable bags (via veterans and former gang members at five dollars a bag) and hand them out city-wide for free (** just wondering if the "Nanny Spud" will propose funding for regular cleaning of these bag after multiple trips to the Supermarket Meat Department, but I digress).
You have to love the irony of the "Nanny Spud's" proposal of hiring ex. gangbangers to produce bags that will be given to the likes of those who will have to forgo their "plastic wrap" for their 40 oz. of choice come January 1, 2014.
But while one never to underestimate the average Angelino's ability to adapt to onerous decrees, what can't be replicated is the wasteful time and expenditures of actions via "Nanny Spuds" like "Potato Head Koretz", that our truly a bigger waste of environmental, communal and fiscal resources.
Your thoughts ..............
