I have some prickly/real sharp bushes that I need to go away from the root for good. What can I use to get rid of these bushes forever? I do not want them back.

I would first prune them back to the ground and dig up the shrubs, getting as much of the root system as possible. Then I would treat the area with Round-up to kill any remaining roots. Of course, there's a chance that some roots may get by you, so additional applications may be needed if you notice an new shoots popping up. If this happens, simply spray the shoots.
