The green police...pleeeeeease, this constant forcing poeple to do the things they don't want to do has got to stop, now your a criminal if you don't recycle and subject to big fine....I pay to have my garbage picked up and I do recycle and the company that picks up my garbage also makes a pretty penny selling the plastic, glass, metal paper, and cardboard I put in those bins, I do this by free choice not because I am forced to. This constant policing of every little thing we do is going to come to a big ugly head one day.

Good, good & good. I would sign up to be a green police officer. All people do in this country is have money to waste, waste, and waste.

Stephi, you seem like a real nice person, what people do with their hard earned money is not your business or mine, how would you feel if someone said Stephi can't gamble anymore cause she's wasting her money? we as humans can't keep going around trying to control everyone else.
Just imagine if we policed everything we didn't like about other people.....
The nail polish police? the perfume police? blue jeans on sunday police?
I will not spend my life having someone else telling me what I can and cannot do with my hard earned money.

Thanks Sully! I recycle because it's a good thing to do, period.

Also agree with your second comments. Normally a 'follow the leader' if the leader makes a good case for something is how people behave.

Thanks Stephi. Sorry but you're on the wrong blog. Your ideas of telling people what to do with their private property, their possessions whether it's garbage or whatever shows me you may not have thought out the long term ramifications to your own freedom regarding that mindset.

Time to start putting things into the regular trash bins that would discourage snoopers like Stephi. I always throw my cat litter in there but I can think of much more unpleasant things...

Thanks Rick! Yes I've put highly unpleasant things in trash too. Week old fish or chicken wrappers with 'sun steeped offcuts' comes to mind.

@sully   Quote: "The nail polish police? the perfume police?"

NOW You Are Talking! Some of those women that polish their nails 100 different colors and smilies! Or perfume that makes you pass out in an elevator!

I'll vote for that!

Thanks Truecritic! Those nail styles never cease to amaze me too ...... on someone else.

What is the difference between a slave owner ordering his slave to separate the recyclables and the law ordering its citizens to separate the recyclables?

Have we not switched masters here?

Thanks Gasmeterguy! Given the amount of freedoms we've lost in the last 9 years it's beginning to make me wonder.
