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]

While it may seem that Alex Jones's primary vocation is convincing gullible morons that juice boxes are turning their kids gay, his real money is made in convincing said gullible morons to buy a ton of snake-oil supplements with pretty much nothing in them -- except, on occasion, some lead. It is quite the racket.

This week, Dutch security researcher Willem de Groot, who monitors a variety of sites to check for infections, discovered that Jones's flagship site Infowars had been infected with a strain of malware called Magecart, which is capable of secretly recording credit card information. In an interview with ZDNet, de Groot explained that the malware was active for 24 hours prior to discovery. Alex Jones told the site that this "only" affected around 1600 customers. I will give you a moment to process the depressing fact that 1600 people were stupid enough to buy Alex Jones' crappy snake oil supplements.

President Chap-Ass is showing his chapped ass to the internet again, and it's clear he's REALLY freaked out. He's been a sad sack of crap ever since he helped the GOP drown in a blue wave by tying his "239-pound" body to their ankles and letting them sink. But today, similar to how appendicitis starts out as an all-over tummyache and then centers around one terrible spot, Trump is really zeroing in on the true thing that is scaring the shit out of him, and it is Robert Mueller.
