    The other day, I was sipping on a vanilla soy latte reading the LA Times. Rode my bike to Vons to buy organic fruit and refused a plastic bag for the fear of hurting or killing Flipper. Ate my whole grain oat meal for breakfast. Maybe, a little yoga would do me some good.

    Plastics bags are or will be forbidden in California.
    Some cities have already done that here.
    Now, next step is provincial legislation.

    I will soon need to go back to my European grass roots, and take reuseable bags to shopping centers.
    No big deal. Just takes a bit time to get used to.

    Now, you just need to recylce more or have a program like most other industrialized countries. - Good money refund for all empty beverage containers.
    (10 cents a can here, 30 cents for a jug of milk, 20 cents for 2 liter juices or milk cartons, also 10 cents for every bottle, even those tiny minature bottles are included).

    Btw, I think you can be a republican without destroying your planet or country.

    The toll road folks gave us free green grocery reusable bags. I take them to the grocery store all the time. I also get a % off my bill because I have my own bags. They are stronger. if you ever had heavy jars of spaghetti sauce break through a plastic bag, you know what a mess that can be.

    I always made sauce from scratch......tomato puree, tomato paste, water etc.......but, when I found a product that tasted great without being so labor intensive I jumped at it. It's Ragu Traditional and I make it my own by cooking my meatballs in it, or bracciole, or chicken or pork and adding fresh basil and other spices and plenty of garlic with the meat.. The sauce becomes different with the different meats. It works for me and tastes great.

    Incredible, ineffencredible . The original poster makes a humorous post and you manage to use it as a springboard to tell us what our country should be doing.

    I just googled this and learned that the name "Canada" comes from the country's early recycling policy whose slogan was RECYCLE A CAN A DAY . Soon enough, that slogan was shortened by usage to a "Can A DAY" and then eventually to "Canada".

    Did if ever hurt to see how others manage a problem , or how they have solutions ?
    Or are you just as one sided as many of you ?

    No one else can do better then yourself ?
    You won't want no ideas ? (yours are the best) ?

    Personally , I would love to adopt a few things from Europe, esspecially thier mass transit system. Even take it from Japan.
    Also other things like getting citizenship. You must live atleast legally (with work and resident visa), before you can even apply for Citizenship.
    If , in the meantime, you commited a crime.. your visas will be taken from you. (and basically can't live or work in there, anymore).

    Smaller crimes, such as drunk driving will expand those 10 years, probably to 12.

    And yes, I do have a problem here, new residents becomming Canadians after only 1 year, or even upon arrival !

    Yes, you are smarter then me.
    I can only travel every other second month.

    You can travel daily to work.

    I only have half a million of assets. With $43 an hr, you must have well over 1 mill !
    Good for you. Sad thing is, you still work, while I'm leaving tomorrow to Mexico again !

    I'm enjoying life, I hope you are, too .

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    Every other second month? Is that the same as every four months?

    Half a million in assets and you are on unemployment/welfare?

    No, government ain't giving me nothing now (only good for 6 months here).
    Actually, I have a $4200 property tax bill I need to pay by June 30th.

    No worries... but I do pay taxes.. and for kids to go to school. (more then half of those $4200 goes towards public education).
