Liberals are slowly robbing us of choices

Lynne Plambeck’s Thursday column, “Time to bring your own bag to the grocery,” applauding the enactment of a ban on plastic shopping bags in the unincorporated (only, thank God!) county areas is a perfect illustration of the liberal mentality at work.

Her radical agenda isn’t embraced by the people as expressed through the free market, so rather than accepting that gracefully, she and other Big Government types want it jammed down our throats by government fiat.

In Plambeck’s perfect world, we’ll all be shuffling meekly to the store like Russian babushkas in the Soviet Union, bags in hand, as we line up to buy whatever few items the mandarins still allow to be sold.

A few years ago, we were told that paper bags were destroying the forests and that we should all switch to plastic bags.

 Now, the plastic bags are strangling the seagulls or something, so they must be banned, too.

Nothing is ever enough for these people.

And when the people as a whole don’t buy their snake oil, they force it down our throats through the courts, or in this case, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors.

Whatever happened to free choice in this country?

I guess that only applies if one wants to murder an unborn baby.
