“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.”

Government thug enforces stupid, Draconian rule for the little people

I saw this story over at Moonbattery this morning and had to repost it....

From the NYPost -- An elderly Manhattan woman living on Social Security was slapped with a $100 ticket -- just for throwing away a newspaper in a city trash can.

Delia Gluckin, 80, tossed the paper in a bin right outside her Inwood apartment building Sunday morning, only to be ambushed by an overzealous Department of Sanitation agent wielding a citation book.

The green mesh can, at the corner of Beak Street and Seaman Avenue, is marked with signs that read "litter only" and "no household trash."

Who's to say whether a "fishwrapper" is litter or household trash?

The heavy hand of the government will not stop tormenting us until the neck of every free American is imprinted with the tread pattern of the jack-boot of a government thug.
