San Franfreakshow Bureauweenies Clamp Down on Environmentally Incorrect Trash
Moonbats tell us that "green collar" jobs will compensate for the damage environmental fanaticism has been doing to our economy. Believe it or not, there really is such a thing. Job-seekers are encouraged to head for the totalitarian dystopia called San Francisco, where exciting careers await them in the trash police:
Garbage collectors would inspect San Francisco residents' trash to make sure pizza crusts aren't mixed in with chip bags or wine bottles under a proposal by Mayor Gavin Newsom.
And if residents or businesses don't separate the coffee grounds from the newspapers, they would face fines of up to $1,000 and eventually could have their garbage service stopped.
The plan to require proper sorting of refuse would be the nation's first mandatory recycling and composting law. It would direct garbage collectors to inspect the trash to make sure it is put into the right blue, black or green bin, according to a draft of the legislation prepared by the city's Department of the Environment.
George Orwell got one thing wrong. It's not the Ministry of Love we have to worry about.
Thank you, Britain, for blazing a path to our green future.
