In case you were wondering why some people refer to the environmental nut jobs as Nazi’s, read this story. Unfortunately, they now hold positions of power over our lives.
It’s the law in D.C. – recycle or face a fine from the Department of Public Works. But is enforcement of the law going too far?
Dupont Circle resident Patricia White says she has been fined eight times for throwing homemade cat litter in her trash. The fines total $2,000. White says she shreds old newspaper and junk mail to use as cat litter. She believes she is helping the environment by reusing the paper and avoiding cat litter you will find in stores.
After being fined several times, White says she called the Department of Public Works inspector who issued the tickets. According to White, the inspector admitted to digging through trash looking for violations. White even appealed the violations in D.C. court. Judge Audrey Jenkins agreed with the inspector after White explained the situation. FOX 5 tried to reach Judge Jenkins, but her office has declined to comment.
Trying to please the enviro-kooks was her first mistake.
Update: Speaking of enviro-kooks, AlGore and some other guy published what they call a “Manifesto for Sustainable Capitalism.” It’s almost blasphemous the number of times they use the word “capitalism” in such a manifesto. I think that might be all the news I can take for one day.
