I think that Palo Alto should be required to open up a paper mill in town if they want an ordinance like this-- preferably upwind from as many city council members as possible.
Apparently Council member John Barton is the only one who read the US Constitution. Our freedom in this country is slipping away, people, one ordinance at a time. As it has in so many other countries. It always seems like a good idea at the time. History repeats itself. Freedom isn't free. The price includes annoying plastic bags in our landfills. That's a small price to pay. Travel abroad extensively if you doubt my words.
I shop at Piazza's regularly (1-2 times a week) and the absence of plastic bags is not a big deal, even to us proletarian Mountain View residents. You guys are blowing things way out of proportion. It's not a big deal.
That will be the last straw that breaks our newspapers' backs. I will certainly terminate my subscriptions if I get soggy papers because of this ordinance. Will the council stop the rains?
So no platic bags allowed in Palo Alto and here in good ol' Mtn. View we're going to have to pay for shopping bags. Sales taxes are going up along with every other tax in this dumb state while services and our school go to pot. I'm curious what the attraction to living here is anymore? We're over taxed, over regulated and under represented from the city councils right up to the Governor.
The Palo Alto CC members should be required to don plastic bags over their heads before City Council meetings. They should also secure them in the same way that the PD secures offenders with the " plastic handcuffs. Nice and tight. This would solve many problems.
Use an alternative to plastic.
Let us make the Bay Area different from all America.
We can advance and take care of not only ourselves but also our city.
A city that is united and is at peace with all races, religions and genders.....is a city that will not only survive natural disasters, but also survive a future economic or political collapse.
Don't miss out on the discussion!
