Oh My God, It Just Never Stops With These People!

Now trash collection is too "socialist" for these insane idiots.

'Tea partyers' oppose changes to Fountain Hills trash collection

A decision by the Fountain Hills Town Council to hire a single trash hauler and begin a curbside recycling program has been met with angry protests from residents who accuse town leaders of overstepping their bounds and taking a leap toward socialism.

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."
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.
That single issue generated a nearly five-hour public hearing and council debate that went past midnight.


Peter Bardow, an opponent, said the issue isn't about politics, but about taking away his and other residents' right to choose their own trash hauler. "I feel like you're forcing homeowners-association regulation and homeowners-association enforcement on me," he said.

Teabaggers-are-crazy stories are a dime a dozen, but the last sentence sets this one above the rest:

"I feel like you're forcing homeowners-association regulation and homeowners-association enforcement on me," he said.

It's always amazed me that many of the very same people who constantly rail against "gummint" have always managed to leave homeowners' associations out of their rants. Has it at long last occurred to these bimbos that most HAs are just developer-run governments? Maybe, though I'm not holding my breath.

Thanks for pointing out the crazy, and keeping the rest of us sane.
