Recyling Enforcement Officer?

Seattle Mandatory Recyling Law In Effect

Garbage hauler Frank Treto quickly spots enough junk mail and cardboard to warrant whipping out a bright yellow warning tag, one of hundreds he's doled out since the city's mandatory recycling law took effect this year.

So far, no one's given him any grief. "Not yet," he said. "I'm looking forward to that. I'm going to see if I can get a bulletproof vest."

Great! A man that admits to knowing the risk he is willing to take for the garbage of recycling. I think he should get that bullet proof vest, dress in black, and carry a gun, (because that is exactly where government gets their power, the point of a gun). With these kind of laws being enforced on us, maybe the citizens should be the ones issued bulletproof vests.

"Seventy percent of the population is going to walk across a bed of hot coals to recycle a bottle. They just do that. They believe in it," said George Dreckmann.

They believe in it, much like a religion. Except the religion of recycling has been proven to do more damage to the environment then good. Resources used in recycling processes cause their own damage and cost society more money, (yeah that's right, the resource of money... oh, wait, it comes from the taxpayers, so it is limitless).

By the way George, that glass bottle is made from sand! Yeah, they must just believe in it. If citizens used their brain they wouldn't waste resources recycling SAND! Our public education system has met it's goal. Now no one waits for the gun to be pointed at them, they simply follow whatever they are told without thought.

For more on the damage done by government sponsored recycling programs, head over to the National Anxiety Center, (where the good news is.... the bad news is wrong). There Alan Caruba wrote about recycling in the his Jan. 16th, 2003 journal, titled "The Utter Waste of Recycling." Article also located at Intellectual Conservative.
