Earlier this month I did a post called "Recycling Is Wrong, Wrong, Wrong" because this dangerously silly woman in my hometown named "Siel" (above, blogging for The L.A. Times) was trying to goad the authorities into punishing anyone who wouldn't go along with that long-standing, but ridiculously harmful, garbage collecting scheme. My post featured a link to a highly-informative New York Times story, "Recycling Is Garbage", which outlined the history of recycling, and the many reasons that it is "the most wasteful activity in modern America: a waste of time and money, a waste of human and natural resources."
So I sent Siel a link to my post and she wrote back:
"Feel free to email me when you put up a post with reasons why you think recycling's wrong, in conjunctions with other people's links. I like to read, you know, actual content."
In other words, this snarky madwoman refused to even click on the New York Times article that proved she was wrong and acting like a Nazi - out to punish anyone who doesn't agree with her wrong-headed obsession - because I didn't personally write it. In other words, this so-called "smart" person willingly put her fingers in her ears and sang, "La-la-la-la-la", to ignore important facts she didn't like - as she's actively trying to bring the power of the State of California down upon innocent people's heads. Like I said, a fucking Nazi.
Now, today, The San Francisco Chronicle's C.W. Nevius (above) wrote an article about a nuisance recycling plant in my old Bay Area neighborhood, the Haight/Ashbury. This time I sent him the New York Times article, and this was the reaction:
"Huh. That's interesting. Thanks. CWN"
That's all he said: "That's interesting." Remember, we're talking about "the most wasteful activity in modern America" - billions of dollars of our tax money gone and nothing for helping "the planet" - and he merely finds the information "interesting".
But will he report on the "interesting" news that (in a misguided effort to "Save The Planet") we're actually doing the wrong thing to the earth and ourselves - and on a massive scale? I seriously doubt it.
Sure, these (so-called) "journalists" will go on and on about the worthless banning of plastic bags, and all the other counter-productive nonsense that's being proposed to nanny state us into a Third World country. But, for some reason, they refuse to write anything that admits the direction we're all being aggressively pushed into - the direction they themselves are pushing us toward - is factually just plain wrong. Why?
Well, as anyone who regularly reads this blog knows, I say it's because they're environmental cultists. Now, I know, many of you may not agree with the term but what do you call people, whose jobs it is to inform us of the wasteful uses of government and money, who refuse to do just that because it it makes them personally feel good to act like assholes while believing in this wrong-headed cause of blindly following Al Gore? I can't find another name for them. "Cultists" fits too well.
And, I swear, from where I sit, after all the betrayals these fascist NewAge idiots are putting society through, the WWII idea of one day shaving their heads, and marching them through the streets as examples to us all, is starting to look better and better,...
