Household Recycling is
State-Endorsed Slavery

Breitbart London [UK], by James Delingpole

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 7/5/2014 6:53:54 PM

Recycling is authoritarian, demeaning and an unutterable waste of time, energy and money. No surprise, then, that the European Union is planning to force its vassal states to do much, much more of it. Last week, the European Commission proposed its most draconian waste disposal legislation yet: a plan requiring 70 percent of all municipal waste and 80 percent of packaging waste to be recycled by 2030; a total ban of the landfill of recyclable waste by 2025, aiming "to virtually eliminate landfill" by 2030. As even the Guardian quietly concedes, this is an impossible ambition:

Our town recycled until last week. The recycling facility had closed down, so everything now goes to the landfill. Do you thing it was somehow unprofitable to run a recycling center in the free market?

I rarely recycle; it´s my rebellion. Recycling is just another form of tyranny and control, the method of coercion being to put a guilt trip on the people. It´s petty and perverted. We do occasionally put out cardboard boxes. Everything else goes in the waste basket, even the paper from the shredder, and then into the garbage can. Otherwise, we rarely put out our recycle bin.

Ours is pretty painless. Everything in our condo project goes into dumpsters and is taken away by a trash company, who purportedly sorts it and recycles what it can.

In single family neighborhoods paper is supposed to go in one bin along with plastics, glass, cans - recyclables. Green yard trash goes into another larger bin. Everything else goes into a catchall bin.

The notion that landfill will be substantially reduced is a pipe dream.

When I was in my 20´s I was a dedicated recycler. Then I became educated on the topic. Plus I love seeing the look on guests faces when they ask where to put their cans and I say well the garbage of course.

The thing about recycling that really irritates me is having to "wash the trash (cans, bottles)" before I put it in the bin.

My recycling plan is simple. I crush and save cans for the elderly neighbor who sells them to help get by. Cardboard, wood and the like get burned. Everything else goes in the trash.

Exactly, No.7 After regularly spotting an elderly man picking up cans on the side of the road on my way to work the wife and I began saving our alum cans in a separate trash bag. When two large black trash bags were full I kept them the the cargo area of my truck and the next time I saw the guy picking up cans, gave him the two bags gratis. I explained that its not worth going to the recycle center as a special trip for small volumes of recylables, but since he´s going anyway.....He was very appreciative and we gave him cans for years. That´s recycling.

#8, when I was a child there was a very nice older man who collected "junk" with a large pushcart. He would go through the curbside trash looking for anything of value, and everyone knew him. Some saved the most prized junk for him, such as copper pipe, brass, etc.

Currently, we have to recycle newspaper, cans, bottles, and plastics, but only those plastics marked with certain numbers. They say we don´t have to rinse it out, but since collection is only once weekly, who wants to keep unwashed containers around all that time, smelling and drawing vermin or pests like raccoons.

Sometimes I wonder how much water we waste washing old cans and bottles.

The only thing recycled here is cans, clear glass and plastic. We haven´t washed any of it for ten years and no one has complained. The heat required to melt any of this stuff would burn off any food residue anyway. The only recycling I´ve seen in my life that was worthwhile was the paper and tin can recycling during WWII (the metal went to the steel mill nearby) and the paper to a pulp mill in a nearby town. There was no plastic then. Around here, the landfills have gotten a little smarter. They build a methane collection, pipe network in the landfill before and as they fill it.

The original justification for recycling was the supposed shortage of landfill space (a lie). We were told that we had run out of room for our garbage (a lie). A we were told that recycling would save the planet (a lie).

See the pattern? If my trash is so valuable, have prisoners sort through it. I have better things to do.

I predict it won´t be long before Europe has its own Revolution to throw the EU out. If the EU thinks there will be no more landfills, I´ve got news for them. Mini landfills will pop up all over the country. And you can bet your last dollar the entitled muzzie invasion will refuse to comply because of some made up sharia law that countries have allowed to creep in. Nice to know you Europe.

We don´t recycle, except for plastic. My wife seems to enjoy it. And metal for money.

My dumpster out front, can receive any sort of trash. This is why I live in a COUNTY, not a city.

In a a world where Islamic Barbarism and Savagery has reached all time new levels with the beheading of the American journalist James Foley. It was not that long ago that Abu Abbas of the Palestine Liberation Front hijacked the tourist filled Achille Lauro Cruise Ship and murdered in cold blood Leon Klinghoffer and threw him overboard with his wheelchair. To pour salt on an open wound the New York based Metropolitan Opera run by Peter Gelb has outrageously decided to run an Opera with music by John Adams entitled, "The Death of Klinghoffer" despite heavy criticism from the Klinghoffer Family

An Englishman on holiday in Spain a century ago found a country with little to recommend it. Waking up on the first morning and consulting his guide book, he would have read the following description: ‘Spain is a bleak and often arid land, with few traces of picturesqueness.’ The towns, the guide continues, are wreathed in tobacco smoke and the cafes are ‘very deficient in comfort and cleanliness’.

"The downed aircraft was of the stealth, radar-evasive type and it intended to penetrate the off-limit nuclear area in Natanz... but was targeted by a ground-to-air missile before it managed to enter the area," ISNA said, citing a statement by the Revolutionary Guards.

An earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 6.0 struck California´s northern San Francisco Bay area early Sunday,damaging buildings, starting fires and leaving thousands without power. The 30-second earthquake struck just before 3:30am about 10 miles northwest of American Canyon, which is about 6 miles southwest of Napa, in California wine country, Leslie Gordon of the U.S. Geological Survey said. It´s the largest earthquake to shake the Bay Area since the 6.9 magnitude Loma Prieta quake in 1989, the USGS said.

The sadistic beheading of the American journalist James Foley by an ISIL killer apparently from Britain, just a few days ago, is the first such killing of an American by a jihadist with a British passport. But it is the second ritual beheading carried out by British Islamists (the head of a British soldier, Drummer Lee Rigby, was hacked from his body by two of them in Woolwich, London last year in full public view). Jihadists from Britain are at the forefront of the most violent extremism seen in modern times and many will properly be puzzled by how such people be citizens of a civilised country like Britain and why we seem powerless

Sometimes a round of golf is just a round of golf. And sometimes it reveals the ­essence of a man. President Obama’s decision to hit the links and yuk it up with pals immediately after speaking about the beheading of James ­Foley was no ordinary mistake. Nor was it a simple gaffe. The decision continues to cause an uproar because, like an X-ray, there is no escaping the image. It shows there is no there there.

We learn this from Jim Downey, the longtime “Saturday Night Live” specialist in political japery. “If I had to describe Obama as a comedy project, I would say, ‘Degree of difficulty, 10 point 10,’” the writer says in the expanded new edition of the “SNL” oral history book, “Live from New York.” “It’s like being a rock climber looking up at a thousand-foot-high face of solid obsidian, polished and oiled,” Downey says. “There’s not a single thing to grab

We are not engaged in a religious war. This is not a confrontation between Islam and the West. To start from that premise is to place Isil (which should not be called by its presumptive title “Islamic State”) on precisely the ground it wishes to occupy. [Snip] The contest is not modern liberal democracy versus the Dark Ages. This is to impose meaning on what is, in truth, meaningless. There is nothing coherent or comprehensible at the heart of the homicidal Isil frenzy. It is just what it looks like: psychopathic nihilism. Indeed, it may be worse than counterproductive to

President Obama is still vacationing in Martha´s Vineyard as this is written. But he may have experienced a jolting encounter with a grim reality. The problem with Obama is too often there is no "there, there" with his words on foreign policy issues. Most infamously, he drew a red line Syria, warning of terrible consequences if the Assad regime used chemical weapons. Then, when the Assad regime did use chemical weapons, Obama unexpectedly deferred to Vladimir Putin to broker a deal that rendered the red line irrelevant. There is no doubt that Obama, to this point in his presidency, has been epically

Ferguson, MO - Conditions calmed this week in Ferguson after nights of sometimes violent unrest stemming from the fatal shooting of a black 18-year-old by a white police officer. But a delicate and crucial question lingers: What happens if the grand jury now considering the case doesn’t return a charge against the officer? The fear among some local residents and officials trying to maintain peace in Ferguson is that failure to charge the officer could stoke new anger among a community profoundly mistrustful of the legal system. Many say they just hope the grand jury’s decision, whatever it is, has irrefutable facts to back it up.
