In the never ending quest of government to relieve citizens of more and more of their hard earned cash, a new and innovative "user fee" has been proposed by San Francisco bureaucrats to tax the use of grocery sacks at 17 cents a pop - in the interest of environmental protection of course. The idea, if you haven't already heard, is primarily to save space in the Bay's landfills and not generate revenue. Bull droppings it's not. These grocery sacks, both plastic and paper, are made of recycled material, a California staple and are no more landfill clogging than trash bags but Frisco citizens are supposed to buy the "it's for the environment" con as a way of parting them from their money. The sad thing is, if the Frisco dummies buy the bill of goods they are being sold then you can expect the "user fee" to catch on fast in other communities.

Around the country referendums affirming that the official definition of marriage is a union between one man and one woman got overwhelming support from voters, usually around 75%. What does that mean? Does it mean 25% of Americans are homosexual? Does it mean some are homosexual and some prefer more exotic unions by which to ensure the survival of mankind? What about one man and one really sexy cordless screwdriver with quick charging batteries or one woman and a macho laptop computer with double hard drives? It's confusing that even after the majority have spoken, the results are being challenged in court. Who are all these unusual people? Could one of them be your neighbor, the local checkout clerk, or your child's teacher? If we were to have a referendum affirming that two plus two equal four, would there also be overwhelming support of 75%? What would the other 25% believe the answer should be? Would it be challenged in court? How can America hope to be taken seriously if we can't be unanimous on what constitutes wedlock? Has the greatest nation on earth become just plain silly?
