So what if you are inconvenienced, you are just a citizen.....


 San Francisco looks to bag paper, not just plastic

SAN FRANCISCO — In a city that has already banned plastic shopping sacks, there is a new target: paper bags.
San Francisco Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi on Tuesday introduced legislation,  so stores can reduce the number of bags provided at checkout.
The ordinance, if passed, would require retailers to offer a 10-cent rebate to customers who use reusable sacks.
If the stores fail to comply, they could face fines from $100 to $500.
Mirkarimi says the legislation would help save a chunk of the 14 million trees chopped down each year to make paper bags.
The ordinance would affect some 135 large grocery stores and pharmacies within city limits.

Can't wait for the next volley SF is going to do, how about banning Cars, or maybe cardboard boxes. They is way to wacko.....


  1. Have to disagree with you on this one, señor. I like trees. I like cars too, and hope to have an electric one someday.

    On another matter, the blog header here looks good, but you have to change the color of the letters. They are almost invisible. Make them white. Easy to do.

  2. It just that they are making another law, to burden the businessman that has enough crap to contend with, they should figure out how not to have the city deficit billions of dollars and not worry about paper bags. It would be interesting to see how many trees are cut for the wasted paperwork they create!
