Trash Privacy in an Intrusive World

   In a letter to the editor, a Big County lawmaker questions an aspect of recycling not often talked about.  Usually cost is the debate, but Legislator Joe Timmerman of Potsdam raises the issue of privacy relating to a requirement for clear plastic bags so officials can inspect the contents. It's an interesting point in a world where we are taught from youth we must submit to the reach of government.

Yup, never liked the idea of clear bags so the government can look through them.

The really important stuff that I don't want anyone to get their hands on gets burnt up, but there are other less important things that don't burn so well.

Don't trust ANYONE these days.

Resistance is futile, you must assimilate. such is the nature of big government with centralized power, that empowers unelected DANC "authorities".

Here is something that explains why the Big Rino County follows the "stay stupid my friends" advice.
It turns out, that as we knew, education majors are the dimmest of all college attendees. Even dumber than farmers. (not counting math, which means farmers can't figure what summers off means. Otter than that, even agriculture majors out perform education majors in all the tests. Good thing they don't have the journalism major separated out, otherwise we could explain Perry's editorials.

Cops need a Warrant to open my CLEAR TRASH BAG.

Makes sense to me.
