Another brilliant idea!
See that's what they did in our city. They made the grocery stores change out the thin and more biodegradable plastic bags. They made them have the thick ones which are way worse.

Agreed. There's a decent chance this is a "false bag" operation to get TheGoodTheBadTheUgly and his kind all riled up so that they'll pay a premium for cheap plastic bags with right-wing slogans on them.

We need to add to the plastics being dumped on our land and on our oceans. Ban on plastic bags, oh the tyranny how will we survive.

Who would have ever thought "conservatives" don't want to converse with

More efficient cars
More efficient light bulbs
More efficient use of materials
More efficient use of feed and fertilizer (food)
and so on and so on.

As one member reminded us.....IF it was even partially true that some "great" America of the past was desired, the single largest positive trait of such would be "waste no, want not". Today they call that reuse, recycle, reduce.

Is that really so hard? Why would anyone champion waste? Well, I hate to even ask the question since I remember tuning into Right Wing Radio a decade or more ago and hearing the host yapping "If I want a yacht that gets 1/4 mile to the gallon then I should be able to get 1/4 MPH".....

And while the statement is true in some ways (you can do it), most decent people wouldn't do it or champion it...and, if they did, they wouldn't mind paying some bigger taxes on the fuel (that is, an enlightened person wouldn't)....

We live in opposite world. ANYTHING that normal decent people are for, the "other side" is automatically against...even without thinking it through. Give them a choice between polluting groundwater to extract the last tiny bit of fossil fuels and wind, water and solar energy and they will take the first without even considering the future.

If Americans can't agree that the earth is round and it's a good idea to work toward cleanliness and efficiency, then we cannot agree on anything.

BTW, I am typing this on my new $3,000 top of the line recliner....that I just bought from a clean consignment shop for $400. I could have dropped the bigger bucks. But why? I'd rather spend it on my kids and grandkids education and on making life easier for some of them who need help (care taking, etc)

I'm "conservative", right?

So you'll also credit the millions of Americans who aren't dead, injured and diseased to "the left" for making safer cars that are 40X as clean? And the same with furnaces, boilers, hot water heaters, house insulation, etc.c etc.?????

Or is the question always whether you can find some situation which may not be perfect?

In the political sense, being "conservative" or "liberal" has nothing to do with what you have stated. In political science, regarding the US, the only true conservatives are monarchists, everyone else is a liberal.

Pretty much no fuss here, since the banning of the old bags at the start of the year.

Hopefully it's only the start.
