There was a problem reporting this.
That’s ridiculous! Use a cardboard box, get a reusable cloth bag (I’ve got a million of them. I’ll give you one.), or just grab one of the hundreds of thousands of them lying on the ground, in shrubbery or trees! That is NOT a hardship!
Brand new plastic bags hanging everywhere are quick and efficient to use to get your items home from grocery and other type of stores . Your minds made up for you when you can reach at arms length and obtain a nearly sterile container to use . Your not fumbling through old used bags that slow you down and slow down those waiting in line behind you …… That’s instant gratification and the industry’s and stores get you in and out quickly and get your $$ quickly too , with new plastic bags . Less stress on you having to think and plan ahead on how you will deliver your items from where you purchased them to your home. There’s a psychological “ excitement “ to opening up something “ new “ . Like a child opening a Christmas present. Humans look at the surface of everything,and that’s about as deep as many of us care to look ,or even fantom . Humans can look at the oceans and see the waves and sunshine reflecting back, blue from the sky ,yet don’t phantom the trail or pollution in the water ,the over fishing, the algae blooms destroying coral reefs ,and the mass exodus of species becoming extinct from mankind’s corrupt use of our fossil fuels and renewable resources, on land or underwater . That frame of mind doesn’t click with capitalistic thinkers. They say “ my daddy did it like this ,his daddy ,before and so forth and so on . It’s obvious that the frontal lobe of our Human brain that controls logic , leaves the definition of what we perceive as logical, wide open to interpretation.
State-Journal.com’s comments forum is for civil, constructive dialogue about news topics in our community, state, nation and world. We emphasize “civil” at a time when Americans, in the words of the current president, need to “turn down the temperature” of political debates. The State Journal will do its part by more carefully policing this forum. Here are some rules that all commenters must agree to follow:
Absolutely no attacks on other commenters, on guest columnists or on authors of letters to the editor. Our print and online opinion pages are sacred marketplaces of ideas where diverse viewpoints are welcome without fear of retribution. You may constructively critique the ideas and opinions of others, but name-calling, stereotyping and similar attacks are strictly prohibited.
Leeway will be given for criticism of elected officials and other public figures, but civility is essential. If you focus your criticism on ideas, opinions and viewpoints, you will be less likely to run afoul of our commenting rules.
Keep comments focused on the article or commentary in question. Don’t use an article about the Frankfort City Commission, for example, to rant about national politics.
Hyperpartisanship that suggests anyone on the other side of an issue or anyone in a particular particular party is evil is not welcome. If you believe that all Democrats are socialists intent on destroying America or that all Republicans are racists, there are lots of places on the internet for you to espouse those views. State-Journal.com is not one.
No sophomoric banter. This isn’t a third-grade classroom but rather a place for serious consumers of news to offer their reactions and opinions on news stories and published commentary.
No consumer complaints about individual businesses. If you’ve had a bad experience with a private business or organization, contact the Better Business Bureau or the government agency that regulates that business. If you believe the actions of a private business are newsworthy, contact us at email@example.com and we will consider whether news coverage is merited.
Absolutely no jokes or comments about a person’s physical appearance.
No promotion of commercial goods or services. Our outstanding staff of marketing consultants stands ready to help businesses with effective advertising solutions.
If you state facts that have not been previously reported by The State Journal, be sure to include the source of your information.
No attacks on State Journal staff members or contributing writers. We welcome questions about, and criticism of, our news stories and commentary but not of the writers who work tirelessly to keep their community informed. Corrections of inaccurate information in news stories should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org rather than posted in the comments section.
