Beware of The BLOG...it creeps, it leaps, it glides & slides all over the place.
The recycling effort, such as it is, has ridden on the back of subsidies for decades now. After 'dumping' hundreds of billions of taxpayer dollars into recycling, it's time for a reckoning and an accounting. What did we get for our money?Don't get me wrong, I'm all for a clean environment. It's just that without fusion energy plants where we can dump this stuff and turn it into glass and elemental material in a clean way - there is no way to make it work. When I was a kid, there was a sense that we might dump it all into the Fifth Dimension (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kjxSCAalsBE) but the band didn't want it.
An excellent question. It’s become entrenched, however.
Leave it to the government to come up with ways to spend our money without giving much back. Have a fabulous day, my friend. ♥
Yet another liberal solution that doesn't solve anything
A lib relative in Canada always asks if I recycle and I reply, "Oh yes, for the WAR EFFORT." She gnashes her few remaining teeth and stomps off into the progleft ether.
Penn and Teller did a bullshit episode on recycling. LONG story short. The only thing worth recycling is aluminum cans. When they start paying bums to bring in anything else then you will know that stuff is worth recycling. Yes, it costs us billions per year. It is money laundering. It pays assholes to work in very high paying federal jobs to do nothing while accomplishing nothing. Side note - Because of paper, we have more trees because we grow trees specifically to make paper.At our house the gargaje people charge more to recycle. We don't.
LL: I had an Organic Chemistry professor who would lose his mind if someone mentioned how bad styrofoam was for the environment. He would go off like a firecracker if someone brought it up because his premise was that you could recycle styrofoam forever and the plastic water bottles had a very short recyclable life. Nobody would listen to a specialist in organic chemistry because liberal politics won out. Nothing has changed.
Messymimi: Entrenched is a very good word for what's happened with recycling.
Sandee: Yes, that's a good way of referring to government.
Jan: The road to hell is paved with good intentions.
If styrofoam is not degradable, then the Earth will simply adopt a new paradigm - The Earth plus Plastic. The Earth doesn't share our prejudice for plastic, plastic come out of the Earth. The Earth just sees plastic as another one of its children. Could be the answer to the age old question - Why are we here? Plastic. The Earth wanted plastic for itself. Didn't know how to make it. Needed us. - George Carlin
LSP: LOL. You gave me a good laugh. Thanks for stopping by.
Kid: All plastic is organic chemistry. Styrofoam is super recyclable, but it was shamed back in the day. Liberals shamed styrofoam and it drove my organic chemistry professor crazy because he knew the science and the liberals didn't.
libtards love to believe that humans are out to destroy everything. Because they are mental and emotional midgets. And retarded. Retarded/Arrested mental development around the age of 3. A clinical conclusion.
youtube "george carlin endangered species" for anyone that wants the whole thing. I post it every Earth Day.
Kid: I miss George Carlin and Frank Zappa. I would love to hear what they'd have to say today.I would think that it would be decidedly conservative or very independent, certainly not liberal.
Frank/George - Lib/Con? Don't know but both certainly were critical thinkers, and True Conservatives are very socially liberal. Marry a goat, just don't ask me to pay for it.
Kid: Exactly. We never knew where they stood politically, but they were smart and I think they helped the world with their wisdom. We're in critical lack of critical thinkers. I don't know what you mean about True Conservatives being very socially liberal. And marrying a goat...?
Conservatives being socially liberal. Using myself as an example.. I don't care what anyone does as long as it is legal and I don't have to pay for it, and sometimes even if it is illegal. The 'I don't have to pay for it' encompasses quite a bit. Hell, all drugs were legal until the early 1900's, did the world fall apart?
Kid: That sounds more like libertarian than conservative. I don't care what people do on their own time, but I do care if it hurts people. Alcohol is legal but if you drink and drive and kill someone then you're a killer.
Cube, The 'I don't have to pay for it takes care of all of that. somene ends up in the court system, jail, I have to pay for it. Burns down their house I have to pay for it because All insurance is socialized to some extent. Restrict people's activities to things I don't have to pay for and we are talking very private matters that do not affect others negatively.
So, someone marries a goat buys custom lingerie for it, doesn't end up in court over it, I don't care. I don't pay for it in any way, and I'm good. I'd also not see it in the news either but perfection is impossible.Anyway, name something you don't have to pay for that you object to and I really don't think I want to have any control over it. As far as I'm concerned, if no one did something that I had to help pay for, we'd be in Eden. Let God or their conscience sort out their deeds.
