San Francisco Environazis Crack Down on Throwing Out Garbage

Who would have thought that when totalitarianism conquered America, it would be ushered in not by advancing tanks or mushroom clouds, but by do-gooder bureaucratic absurdity like this:

Throwing orange peels, coffee grounds and grease-stained pizza boxes in the trash will be against the law in San Francisco, and could even lead to a fine.

The Board of Supervisors voted 9-2 Tuesday to approve Mayor Gavin Newsom’s proposal for the most comprehensive mandatory composting and recycling law in the country. It’s an aggressive push to cut greenhouse gas emissions and have the city sending nothing to landfills or incinerators by 2020.

Every authoritarian regime needs a bogus ideology to justify its foot on your face, but does it have to be so insultingly absurd as the global warming hoax? We are going to choke to death on our own garbage so that useless parasites in government offices can claim they’re saving polar bears from the utterly harmless gases that would allegedly be generated if they let us throw out the trash.
