Teabaggers Hate Government Trash Collection Now

News

Teabaggers from Arizona are a special breed and are continually winning the craziest-Teabagger national championship, so it should come as no surprise that they havecome out in full force against a town's decision to hire one trash truck and start a curbside recycling program. This is socialism, of course, because a government hiring a crew of garbage men to pick up a city's and its residents' trash is a huge government intrusion that will destroy this country with the force of seven garbage Joseph Stalins. So the beleaguered town council had to sit through Teabaggers yelling at them in a five-hour public hearing and debate period.


On Thursday, a divided council approved a five-year contract with Allied Waste Services to be the single hauler and begin a recycling program. Residents currently can choose among five haulers and the town has no curbside recycling.

These Teabaggers are amateurs at being crazy. Where's the outrage over the government limiting them to only FIVE garbage companies in the first place? That's just as bad as being limited to one. Shouldn't they be able to pay who they want to take away their trash? Shouldn't they have the choice not to get rid of their trash at all? Shouldn't they live in their piles of trash, because that makes them the most free? The top Teabaggers at the Gold Level already do this. It's almost as if these local Teabaggers became rabidly angry over a particular issue they never gave any thought to, simply because somebody told them to. Imagine that!

And last week, a flier was circulated around Fountain Hills with an ominous icon and the phrase, "The Hills Will Have Eyes," and that claimed the "Fountain Hills Green Police" checked residents' garbage and recyclables, and as a result, "you are wanted for questioning."

Perfect! Makes a lot of sense! They are winning the war on logic!

Councilwoman Ginny Dickey, who also supported the measure, said she felt that her motivations were especially questioned because she is the only Democratic council member and worked for seven years at the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality.

"It seems counterintuitive, but in order for this proposal to pass, I believe I had to downplay the benefits of recycling," she said. "When ideology prevents rational discussion of a really pretty mundane topic, trash, there is no perspective. Everything is suspect, which paralyzes us."

Are those the lyrics to "America the Beautiful"? They sound like the lyrics to "America the Beautiful." [Arizona Republic via Gawker]

It's the night before the two-night Democratic primary debate extravaganza, and we're already tired. Turns out having 20 candidates spread across two nights when only six or eight of them matter is not the must-see TV we all thought it was going to be! But that's not to dissuade you from getting excited! We're excited! We're so excited! We're so ...

SCARED!

In case you need a reminder, here is how it's going to go down:

Lately he's been blowing smoke from another orifice.

After a cursory examination of the TWELVE filings in the case against California Congressman Duncan Hunter just in the past 24 hours, we can confidently declare that that guy is a fucking idiot. The prosecutors have him by every last one of his short and curlies -- which is what happens when you use your campaign credit card to pay for hundreds of thousands of dollars of ski trips, video games, tuition, and plane tickets for the family rabbit.

A rational human being would have pleaded down a year ago and given up his congressional seat, since he could cash out and make a lot more money as a lobbyist anyway. But not Duncan Hunter! He made the federal government chase him down and document every last carton of cigarettes, round of tequila, and Uber ride of shame home from his many girlfriends' houses in a 60-count indictment filed last August. And still this dumb sumbitch refused to admit he was caught, even after his lovely wife (and co-conspirator) Margaret Hunter flipped on him this month -- which is what happens when you use your campaign credit card to carry on multiple affairs and you piss off the US Attorneys enough that they put every 7 a.m. Uber ride in your indictment.
