Plastic Grocery Bags, Love 'em or Hate 'em

The debate has come to the Valley of the Sun: ban plastic grocery bags!

How about ban the fascists? Are we allowed to do that? I think we need to start considering it.

When I piped off on our local news's Facebook page, I read another person's comments that said: grocery bags have been biodegradable for the last twenty years. Twenty years? I had to check it out.

Low and behold, I find this company: Alibaba in  China. It is true. Then why the issue? Cities and towns do not want to spend the money to recycle these bags properly so the campaign begins to outlaw them.

Can you say stay out of my beeswax?

Governments should not be legislating my light bulbs or grocery bags, politicians should be doing the people's business, not trying to parent us.
