A good friend with a sharp eye found this story about the new craze in purchasing reusable shopping bags, see. Reusable Shopping Bag Dangers
Go figure – yet another Left Wing fruity Environmental Nazis plan run aground. Remember we stopped using paper bags because we had to cut down trees to make them? We replaced them with plastic bags made of petroleum that we had to buy from someone else because the environmental Nazis won’t let us drill here. Then we found out that the plastic bags were not environmentally friendly. So now we create a new industry making bags that we can use over and over again until we get sick.
Personally – I miss paper bags. They sat up better in the car, you could put more stuff in them, and they fit perfectly in the recycle bin. I like the plastic bags too. My wife has one of those fabric cocoons hanging on the door in the mud-room that you put used plastic shopping bags in. If you ever need a plastic bag again – you have a tube full of them that falls off the door when you try to get one back out. They are useful for lining small wastebaskets and carrying wet waste so I like them. However I won’t buy those damn reusable bags. Every time I ended up with one it is always someplace other than where I need it. I also don’t want someone to think that I am some soft-headed watermelon (you remember “green on the outside and red on the inside”) if I were to be seen with an armload of them going into Shopper’s Food Warehouse. So if anyone wants to tempt fate with reusable shopping bags, I have one that you can have. A lady at the mall gave it to me – the tag says that it is “Made in China” – I hate watermelons.
After all these years what do you think the very best way to carry your groceries home is? You got it. Brown Paper Bags.
Liberal Watermelons should learn from this and all the other catastrophes that they cause. Remember all the hysteria they caused about bad drinking water? We have the finest drinking water in the world though I admit there are local anomalies from time-to-time. But what happened? The only bottled water that I can remember as a kid was distilled water that my mother bought to put in the steam iron. But Liberal hysteria exploded into an entirely new industry that took (in most cases) tap water and packaged it in pretty plastic bottles. They have catchy names like Dasani, Aquafina, Highland Spring, Sierra Spring, Evian (I won’t buy that one because it sounds French), and Fiji. What did that watermelon hoax cause? City and county tax revenues are down as millions of gallons of water are drunk from bottles shipped in from some other locality while the bottle along with other extraneous packaging ends up in the local dump. That doesn’t even include the explosion in water purification filters that are probably unnecessary in most places as well. I have one on the refrigerator that I have to try and remember when I changed last. The new one costs me $30 a pop. Now watermelons everywhere are trying to get us to buy reusable metal or plastic containers to fill with – you got it – tap water.
After all these years what do you think that the very best source of water is? Your kitchen tap.
Hey Watermelons – do you want to fix anything else for us? What is the next emergency?
