Don't support Home Depot or the State which subsidizes it, snowflake.

Here in Commiefornia they banned plastic bags in grocery stores. And paper is bad because it kills trees. So if you forget to bring your own bags, you have to pay 10 cents for a heavy plastic bag. The dumbass libs didn't think far enough down the road to see the obvious....now landfills are filling up with these bags that won't biodegrade. And people re-use the bags are having residue from meat make them sick.....
Another brilliant idea!

You guys go out and spend thousands on guns and ammo, but cry over ten cents for a bag.

No sympathy here. You better quit your crying and get used to bringing your own reusable bags when you go shopping or else pay for it. The era of first world entitlement and waste is about to go on a steep decline.

Wow....thanks for the illustration of patriotism and environmentalism. I guess "my wallet" should be put into the Pledge of Allegiance.
About every post you write is some melodrama event about the right wing.

Plastic bags tend to disrupt the environment in a serious way. They get into soil and slowly release toxic chemicals. They eventually break down into the soil, with the unfortunate result being that animals eat them and often choke and die.

If you use reusable bags, you are a liberal.

If you use plastic bags, you are a conservative.

But what if you use reusable bags, yet own numerous firearms?

What if you use plastic bags but are pro choice?

Some people's minds would be confused and maybe freeze over it.
