On November 6th, Waterville residents will be voting on a potential plastic bag ban.

The ballot initiative is being forced down the throat of Waterville by the Green Crony Corporatist organization, Sustain Maine Mid Maine Coalition. The radical environmental group got its foot in the door during the Left’s attempt to recall Mayor Nick Isgro for standing up for your 2nd Amendment rights on Twitter.

The Bag Ban would force residents to either pay five-cents per plastic bag while shopping, or bring their own reusable bag to the grocery store.

As Surgeon General’s Warning’s Sean Ross Still explains, the problem with reusable bags is, people don’t clean them.

Anyone with a cat know the feline affinity for sleeping — and sometimes peeing — in bags. In fact, store clerks say the smell of cat urine is a frequent and disturbing issue with reusable bags.

It’s far from sanitary to have ammonia-scented, cat-urine soaked tots riding on the same conveyor belt as your blueberries and potatoes.

The bill also opens Pandora’s Box of other bans. For example, we’ve seen other cities go after a ban on plastic straws. Would disposable diapers be next? A new law forcing you to wash poopy pampers?

The Sustain Mid Maine Coalition bill was passed by the Leftist Waterville City Council but promptly vetoed by Mayor Isgro. The Council had enough votes to override the veto, which is why the initiative is on the ballot on election day.

This is yet another example of the need to replace the current makeup of the Council.

  • The sanctuary cities of Seattle and San Francisco protect illegals while folks have to dodge piles of feces on their sidewalks. Yet, they banned plastic straws to save the environment. When Michael Savage says that “Liberalism is a mental disorder” he’s being far too kind.

    Falmouth has an unsanitary plastic bag ordinance but what else would one expect from a town dominated by yuppie Dems? In most other cities, supermarkets use plastic bags that are always being used for other purposes particularly as liners for small trash cans. Makes sense to me.

    • I have 30 slides explaining why banning plastic single use shopping bags is ecologically damaging. It’s just the ‘Feel Good’ nonsense that the uninformed are buying. I was on Falmouth’s Committee that was told to create an ordinance because of a few emails. If I weren’t on the committee ensuring Falmouth’s businesses would not be inconvenienced by this it would have been a lot worse. We need the moderates to speak up more, email their town governments, keep Maine sensible. That’s why I’m running for State Senate. Fed up and doing something.
