Most people will say this is a load of bovine excrement in extremis.
Most people will act the sheep and comply.
Most people don't want anything horrific to happen to our environment - Dang straight I don't.
Most people will get the impression that this is so their town can increase revenue.
Most people haven't the slightest idea this has nothing to do with any of that whatsoever, including revenue.
It's about command and control...... A Totalitarian Statist government and the complete elimination of any individual rights.
If your village, town, city, county and state are part of ICLEI, and this Green Police insanity isn't in place as of today, it will be in the very near future. Guaranteed. It's in the ICLEI charter as a compliance mandate.
If your village, town, city, county and state are not part of ICLEI, you MUST get involved and stop it from ever happening, because it's coming whether or not you realize it.
I've been warning people about this long before I was a member here at RedState.
I've been called many more things than a tin-foil-hat-wearer for doing so.
Beware the green police. They don't carry guns (Ed. note.... Not yet.) and there's no police academy to train them, but if you don't recycle your trash properly, they can walk up your driveway and give you a $100 ticket.
In a growing number of cities across the U.S., local governments are placing computer chips in recycling bins to collect data on refuse disposal, and then fining residents who don't participate in recycling efforts and forcing others into educational programs meant to instill respect for the environment.
Let's see if you remember this....... Call it a bit of 'recycling', as I posted this well over a year ago here at RedState on the very same topic and was called just about every name in the book.
Please remember that there's always a major level of truth in all humor and snark.
Right about now, I'm corked off enough and dangerously snarkified, so check your six often.
Cut to a more than likely scene at my house, a date in the near future...........
.....knock knock, knock........
Me: "Yes, who's there?"
Them: "Mr. Solomon, this is Waste Watch, open the door."
Me: "Who ?"
Them: "Waste Watch, The Environmental Enforcement Division Of The Civilian Defense Force...... Sir, you did not place any material in the containers marked 'Positive Recycling, But Non-Potable Protein' and 'Glass Or Other Hard Non-Bio-Degradable Substances Over 6.5 Ounces' on the first day of National Personal Garbage Inspection..... We have orders to inspect your home and ascertain the reason behind your non-compliance. You are hereby ordered to open the door or we'll kick it in and drag you out in handcuffs."
Me: (Laughing)....... "OK Dave, I know it's you. Is that Jessica with you too ? She said she was coming into town on vacation. You really break me up with something new every week."
Them: "Sir, I am Sub-Leader Hassan Mustafa and with me is Political Agent Loquesha Smith-Jones from The Gore Division of Waste Watch, The Environmental Enforcement Division Of The Civilian Defense Corps. If you do not open the door immediately for a full-home inspection, we are authorized to use any amount of force to achieve Leader Barry's goal of change."
Me: ..... "What the.......One second, please." ........... looking to my surveillance monitor at the front door camera........ "Whoever you are, I am a citizen of The United States of America and The State of Florida and this is not going to end well if you don't have a warrant or leave immediately."
Them: "Mr. Solomon, OPEN THE DOOR NOW or we're coming in, weapons drawn and safeties off."............ Attempting to bash in the door.......... Thud.... Thud..... THUD..........."Sir, your in violation of the National Excessive Waste Act and........."
Me: ........(loud noise) Snap, Clack......... For the uninitiated, that's the sound of a well-maintained Remington 870 Tactical Shotgun transferring a 1525 fps Magnum 00 Buckshot 10-pellet shell into the chamber........ "You're on my property and have just threatened me with violence and are attempting to enter my home without permission. You have less than 2 seconds to stop and leave, or I will defend myself according to The Castle Doctrine of The State of Florida."
Them: .......... THUD.... BUMP..... THUD - hinge pop........... "Sir, WE ARE COMING IN !"
Me: BLAAAAAAAAAAAM ! Snap, clack….. BLAAAAAAAAAAAM ! Snap, clack….. BLAAAAAAAAAAAM ! Snap, clack….. BLAAAAAAAAAAAM ! Snap, clack....... In firing position, moving left/right, forward and low....... Then, out-loud to myself….. “Any more of ‘em?....... No....... Good Lord, what the hell was that about? I'd better call the station house."
Go ahead.......... Keep telling yourself none of what's actually going on can happen here in America.
Get hold of your family...... Get hold of your friends....... Get hold of your neighbors.
Wake them up fully, even if you have to beat some sense into them.
Their literal freedom is at stake in the very short term.
The unthinkable long term is beginning to take shape.
