(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

DC Resident Fined Thousands For Not Recycling Cat Litter: MyFoxDC.com

From FoxDC.com:
By MATT ACKLAND/myfoxdc

WASHINGTON - It's the law in D.C. - recycle or face a fine from the Department of Public Works. But is enforcement of the law going too far?

Dupont Circle resident Patricia White says she has been fined eight times for throwing homemade cat litter in her trash. The fines total $2,000. White says she shreds old newspaper and junk mail to use as cat litter. She believes she is helping the environment by reusing the paper and avoiding cat litter you will find in stores.

After being fined several times, White says she called the Department of Public Works inspector who issued the tickets. According to White, the inspector admitted to digging through trash looking for violations. White even appealed the violations in D.C. court. Judge Audrey Jenkins agreed with the inspector after White explained the situation. FOX 5 tried to reach Judge Jenkins, but her office has declined to comment.


Again, amongst a host of other things, government intruding -- now -- into your trash piles.

As if it weren't already sufficiently intrusive.

Keep living in Big Cities, Americans. Be crushed like herring and fined and taxed.

Me? I'll keep my pine trees and mountains, thank you.

Sounds like that's VERY environmentally conscious.

DC is notorious for this kind of ordinance enforcement.

Meanwhile, open-air crack markets are doing business in plain sight. And I'm not kidding at all. That is indeed happening all over the District.

AOW: it's because you can't get blood from a ghetto turnip -- but you CAN get blood from an actual Mark I, Model I TAXPAYER.

Parasites v. Hosts. Parasites soon to outnumber the hosts. Already occurred in some areas.

The chaos that will result when people who have been proffered Free Cheese for generations are actually told "sorry, no more Free Cheese"?

Will make Greece, London and Paris look like weenie roasts.

Precious metals.

Well, I would never use newspaper as litter to begin with, yuck! Not to mention all of that ink getting on the poor cat's fur.

I will stick with using Arm and Hammer cat litter. It's great for the environment and the box doesn't stink up my house.

I have a very happy and clean kitty.

But at least, Leticia, don't you think her heart was in the right place? She was trying to do her part for the environment. With DC, it's all about the buckage and establishing domination and control over the populace.
