Get ready for racks and stakes




Government agencies and environmentalists have forced people to have at least three different garbage cans. When I was in Germany, they had to have four. If this pattern continues, we citizens will have to have more than 10 different cans, all hidden away somewhere on our property.  Who needs a kitchen or bathrooms?

De gustibus non disputandum est (of taste there must be no dispute). The motley garbage cans that line the streets are gorgeous in my eyes. People should leave them in the open so I can see and admire them as I cruise around the town.

Environmentalists do not believe in freedom of religion and separation of church and state. Environmentalism is a religion that worships earth. Bow down to Gaia. Radical environmentalists serve on the San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors and on many city councils in the county. Now, if one does not follow the rules of that religion, environmentalism, one pays a fine and/or goes to prison. Soon comes the inquisition, the rack, and the burning stakes if one does not confess to the heresy of having anti-environmentalist thoughts. Torquemada would be proud.
