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:

Classic Dpole--a really good piece on the nonsense of householder recycling. Jimmy D has done some sharp research containing wonderful material to use in friendly discussions with your green neighbors.

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.

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.

Offshore wind farms are OK after all, exciting new research by scientists has revealed, because barnacles. [Snip] Besides being wildly expensive (so heavily subsidised by compulsory levies that they cost six times more than coal energy) they are also: shortlived (because it´s hard to erect such large mechanical structures in such hostile terrain); subject to declining efficiency; they kill an average 110-330 birds per turbine per year; they blight the view from the coast; they disrupt shipping; they kill whales and other marine life; they drive up energy prices; they increase fuel poverty; they enrich rent-seekers; they require vast pylons to

The US says it has temporarily shut its embassy in the Libyan capital Tripoli over security concerns. Embassy staff, including marine guards providing security to the embassy, have been evacuated to Tunisia "due to the ongoing violence resulting from clashes between Libyan militias," it adds. The state department has also urged US nationals not to go to Libya. It comes amid fierce clashes between rival militias in the capital, with recent fighting at Tripoli airport. [Snip] State department spokeswoman Marie Harf said the withdrawal "underscored the Obama administration´s concern about the heightened risk to American diplomats abroad".

The sunny highs of July are numbered, with a dramatic drop in temperature next week when a second polar blast hits large parts of the U.S. Temperatures are forecast to be up to 20 degrees below average for this time of year, with some places experiencing a chill more usual in the fall. A jet stream from polar regions will bring the unseasonable weather in on Sunday, with a band of thunderstorms leading it in Ohio and along the East Coast. The storms are likely to bring hail, strong winds, and a risk of tornadoes in and around the Ohio

Why are there fears that a Palestinian uprising is about to break out? An overnight attempt to march on Jerusalem from the heart of the West Bank came up against Israel´s security measures. There have been an increasing number of calls for action in Palestinian territories outside Gaza, as well as Jerusalem. [Snip] The term intifada properly translates as shaking off and in this literal sense the first two uprisings in 1987-1993 and 2000-2003 failed to achieve the goal of Palestinian autonomy or eventual independence. The first outbreak was known as the war of the stones for the constant scenes of

   

 



 
Obama has his head in the sand
over America´s corporate exodus
Telegraph [UK], by Jeremy Warner    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 7/25/2014 1:11:16 PM     Post Reply
When companies are heading for the door as fast as they decently can, you have to ask yourself why? President Obama´s approach is a rather different one; let´s just lock the door and stop them from leaving. On both sides of the US political divide, America´s apparent corporate exodus via so-called "inversion takeovers" is a source of growing concern. However, their response to the problem could hardly be more different. Broadly, Republicans want to deal with the issue by lowering corporate tax rates; but Democrats want to stop the outflow by changing the rules. As things stand, these allow companies

President Barack Obama is summoning Central American leaders to the White House to discuss the influx of young immigrants from their countries to the US, hoping to show presidential action even as Congress remains deeply split over proposals to stem the crisis on the border. The meeting comes as the administration is considering creating a pilot programme giving refugee status to young people from Honduras, White House officials said Thursday. The plan would involve screening youths in their home country to determine whether they qualify for refugee status. The programme would be limited in scope and would start in Honduras

Gout is almost unique in being a serious and debilitating condition still capable of raising sniggers of laughter and sneering derision towards those who suffer from it. It is commonly thought of as a historical anomaly, a disease rarely seen since the last portly Victorian gentleman died out, long ago banished from these shores by advances in diet and medicine. [Snip] Gout is a type of arthritis in which crystals form inside and around a joint, typically in the big toe. These crystals begin to form when there is too much uric acid--a waste product naturally produced by the body--in

Israel-Gaza conflict: Hamas calls for

Hamas leaders, both in Gaza and abroad, have called for the start of the third intifada - or Palestinian uprising - after violent riots with live fire erupted throughout Jerusalem and the West Bank last night. Violence flared up as thousands of Palestinians took to the streets, rioting and protesting Israel’s actions in Gaza. Approximately 10,000 people marched from Ramallah to Jerusalem, where they clashed with Israeli police. Two Palestinians were killed and approximately 200 were injured when protests turned violent near the Qalandiya checkpoint, just north of Jerusalem. In East Jerusalem and the Old City, 40 rioters were arrested.

Finally! After six long years, Britain´s

Britain’s economy has finally bounced back from the deepest recession in post-war history. New figures show the economy is now larger than before the 2008 financial crisis. Growth of 0.8 percent between April and June draws a line under the worst downturn the nation has faced. It has taken six long years to reverse the decline which began in early 2008 and saw the economy shrink by 7.2 percent by the middle of 2009. [Snip] But Labour has been quick to point out that the recovery has been much slower than the Tories predicted when the Coalition was formed in 2010.

President Obama insists on flirting with impeachment even as House Republican leaders insist there’s no such possibility. Obama uses a passive-aggressive strategy that can be judged as a political maneuver, a personality disorder, or both. Secure in the knowledge that impeachment is not the same as removal from office, Mr. Obama brings up the topic on his own and with bold defiance. Martyrdom goes well with a Messiah complex and Mr. Obama’s speeches are a non-stop litany of depicting himself as a victim of Republicans. Already operating beyond the constitutional bounds of presidential power, Mr. Obama’s strategy is to push the bounds

The president’s demeanor is worrying a lot of people. From the immigration crisis on the Mexican border to the Islamic State rising in Mesopotamia, Barack Obama seems totally detached from the world’s convulsions. When he does interrupt his endless rounds of golf, fundraising and photo ops, it’s for some affectless, mechanical, almost forced public statement. Regarding Ukraine, his detachment — the rote, impassive voice — borders on dissociation. His U.N. ambassador, Samantha Power, delivers an impassioned denunciation of Russia. Obama cautions that we not “get out ahead of the facts,” as if the facts of this case — Vladimir Putin’s

A year after news of the Monica Lewinsky scandal broke, former First Lady Hillary Clinton allegedly told a Pulitzer-prize winning journalist that it was former President Bill Clinton’s abusive mother that caused his unfaithfulness and sex addiction, a new book claims. That journalist was Lucinda Franks and while her latest book, “Timeless: Love, Morgenthau, and Me,” doesn’t have much to do about the Clintons, the part that does offers never before reported information from a 1999 interview with the former First Lady. The New York Daily News obtained parts of the book a month before its scheduled August 2014 release.

When President Obama issues executive orders on immigration in coming weeks, pro-reform activists are expecting something dramatic: temporary relief from deportation and work authorization for perhaps several million undocumented immigrants. If the activists are right, the sweeping move would upend a contentious policy fight and carry broad political consequences.

ST. LOUIS – The nation´s third botched execution in six months offers more evidence for the courts that lethal injection carries too many risks and amounts to cruel and unusual punishment, death-row lawyers and other opponents said Thursday. Death-penalty opponents say the execution of an Arizona inmate who took two hours to die shows that state experiments with different drugs and dosages are a callous trial-and-error process. The result: Every few months, an inmate gasps, chokes and takes an unusually long time to die.

Senior White House advisers are taking very seriously the possibility that Republicans in Congress will try to impeach President Obama, especially if he takes executive action to slow deportations.

The IDF has not yet located and destroyed all of Hamas´ terror tunnels, but the consensus about the intent behind them is quite clear. This is Jonathan Dahoah HeLevi of the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs. Ismail Haniyeh, the Hamas prime minister, delivered a revealing speech on March 23, 2014, in which he stressed the strategic importance of the Hamas attack tunnels, which, he argued, have changed the balance of power with Israel, when taken together with his organization’s military build-up. In the meantime, the IDF’s war against the tunnels continues. On Monday IDF forces thwarted another terror attack after two groups of Hamas
