Nanny State Cometh: Ravi Bhalla shovels plastic bag ban with special “exemption” he’ll allow
Talking Ed Note: The City Council passed Ravi Bhalla’s ban the plastic bag ordinance on first reading by a vote of 9-0 proving that diversity only extends to colors and not thinking.
Conformity of thought is what we’re seeing here with political correctness running amok tied with a bow of potential political corruption.
This Portlandia episode to Ban the bag was published by MSV on its YouTube channel in 2012. It’s easily the most popular video exceeding over 309,000 views.
No one on the Hoboken City Council apparently has bothered to watch it. Common sense has escaped them as they kowtow to Ravi Bhalla and his mighty sword of political correctness, with a handy exemption he decides, don’t ya know.
It must be a hard decision as we’ve all been told how plastic bags cause pelican cancer. You don’t want to hurt the pelicans, never the pelicans.
