3. Mandatory Recycling
When the left gets an idea, they usually aren’t happy until everyone is forced to comply. Recycling, the great energy expending, tax dollar eating, politically correct way to waste resources. Even if we all like the idea, usually recycling is an expensive process that uses more energy than it saves. Landfills, which are generally derided as “toxic,” actually produce ethanol which is used to produce electricity. But in parts of Florida, if you don’t recycle you can be fined up to $1000 (I guess that will help offset the cost of recycling). In some parts of Massachusetts, you have to affix an individualized sticker onto your garbage, so they can be sure you are not throwing away recyclables. Because heaven forbid a Pepsi bottle gets put in the wrong bag.
