Plastic Bag Bill Faces Battle In Sacramento

I think the jobs issue is a bad one because it would create jobs making and selling reuseable bags.However, I am verymuch opposed to the ban. I think it will discourage purchases and therefore be bad for the economy. I also think if it were put to a popular vote it would go down decisively and I think democracy is more important than a ban on bags.
This issue has whiskers on it. Twenty five years ago I would have supported it. Now I think, make the bags effectively biodegradable.

Prop 8 Debate May Hinge On Who's Arguing The Case

It seems like of obvious that the Governor and Attorney General are named as defendants in their capacity as democratically elected officials--not as feudal lords in their own right. That they are derelict in their duty is also clear and no doubt the court will find a remedy to the difficulties resulting.
I think that any citizen has a right in society to a share of input into the makeup of said society. Otherwise he is a subject, something much lower in status. In fact, even in medieval times the views of the populace were more taken into account than would-be Governors Schwarzenegger & Brown would have it.
