The Power Freaks in the People's Republic of San Francisco Just Reversed Their Plastic Bag Ban

San Francisco has reversed its 13-year ban on plastic bags and will now prohibit the reusable bags city leaders once championed because of the coronavirus panic.

These clowns blow with whatever the latest drama is.

As the Washington Times notes, at the time of the plastic bag ban, San Francisco’s board of supervisors linked plastic bags to a litany of scourges, including litter, global warming, big oil and endangering sea life.

So will the plastic bag ban be ended permanently since flu has killed more than COVID-19 and it is spread in the same manner?



  1. As far as I know, all of the local grocery stores around me (I'm in northern Utah) have stopped allowing customers to use their "eco-friendly" resuable bags.

    I admit that I'm getting a good laugh (along with my wife who thinks it's equally funny) knowing that "evil" plastic bags are now the preferred method of carrying one's groceries.

  2. Unfortunately I'm not hearing any discussion about the fees imposed on "single-use" paper and plastic bags being waived by California's municipalities or the state government. Unless these fees are removed, this is not a victory for libertarians, but instead another victory for paternalistic "Simon Says" government. "Simon says bring your own bag to the store, and we'll charge you for paper bags. Simon says you can't bring your own bag to the store. Paper bags are free. Wait, Simon didn't say that paper bags are free...."

  3. It seems like their priorities are off. If the world is going to end in 12 years, per AOC, then how can COVID-19 be that important to combat?

  4. Peter Duesberg is to medical science what Thomas Szasz was to psychiatry: They both exposed fake science and the corruption of science by politics.

  5. My city banned them January 1, 2020 and they are back as of today.
