“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

One man's trash.....

The insanity of the pointless recycling hysteria, like Ted Kennedy's belt line, knows no bounds....

A council refused to collect rubbish from a 95-year-old war veteran who is nearly blind - because he put a ketchup bottle in the wrong bin.

Lenny Woodward, a former Desert Rat who has lived in the same house for 58 years, was confused by a new regime of fortnightly collections and rigid recycling rules.

Residents have a blue wheelie bin for cans and cardboard, a green box for glass and a black bin for other waste.

Mr Woodward made the mistake of putting the ketchup bottle and a coffee jar in the blue bin when they should have gone in the green box.

Are you freaking kidding me? The enviro-recycling movement has become downright militant, despite the fact that it accomplishes nothing but making dumb liberals feel good about themselves. How long before mistakenly putting paper in the glass bin gets you a fine? I know this is Britain where enviro-radicalism has been choking the freedoms of citizens for a long time, but don't think this nonsense can't happen here in America too. Especially if smug, hand-wringing liberals manage to seize the reigns of power in November.

I'll bet Lenny is wondering what in the world he risked his life in the war for.

So it is now the garbage man's job to dig through a person's trash before he empties it? Recycling is a waste of time if you ask me. You can still buy new unrecycled things, so we obviously haven't stopped making more glass and plastic. What's the point of recycling if you don't quit making whatever material it is you want to recycle. Recycling in a way, creates excess of a raw material. Its just not efficient, nor is it practical, at least not in an economic sense.
