Hypocritical liberals infringing on civil liberties in San Francisco

A few weeks ago, my fiance and I were issued a warning by our apartment managers. Evidently, I had inadvertently disposed of some magazines without first putting themin a plastic garbage bag. On our warning letter, slid under our door during the dark of night, was a photocopy of my name, address, etc. on a copy of ESPN the magazine.

One can imagine to what lengths the apartment managers undertook to root through trash. Undoubtedly, they RUMMAGED through the dumpster, verifying that all waste was properly disposed.

This story is oddly reminiscent of a measure being considered by the obnoxiously liberal San Francisco city government, whereby, in an effort to ensure its citizens are properly recycling, will snoop through their garbage.

According to, "Garbage collectors would inspect San Francisco residents' trash to make sure pizza crusts aren't mixed in with chip bags or wine bottles under a proposal by Mayor Gavin Newsom."
"And if residents or businesses don't separate the coffee grounds from the newspapers, they would face fines of up to $1,000 and eventually could have their garbage service stopped."
Anyone else notice an issue here? Of course; anyone with a half-a-mind (does not include liberals, unfortunately) will question what the government is doing 1.) with the garbage; 2.) and also what ELSE they're doing while they're verifying that its' citizens are properly recycling its waste.

We've heard the obnoxious Left clamor that President Bush usurped the Constitution by engaging in a clandestine warrantless wiretapping program aimed at fighting Islamic terrorists. If those same idiots on the Left are not outraged at this veiled attempt by the San Francicso city government to keep tabs on their citizens, then they're hypocrites.

Which, sadly, they are. Wny? Because said actions potentially perpetrated by the SF government is conducted in the name of Environmentalism. Because they worship in the Green Church, the Left can institute such draconian, blatant violations of our basic civil liberties...

All to worship the Gods of Green.

Note the following from the Christian Science Monitor:
"Ever-perceived by the rest of the nation as perched on the fringe of rationality, San Francisco is about to flip its lid once again. The lid's color, if it's any comfort, is green – as in one of the three recycling bins into which its residents will be forced to sort their food waste.

History repeatedly reminds us that extreme fervor by government leads to infringement on basic rights. Yet eager, young, and even brilliant leaders experience moments of impaired reason when confronted with an idea that appears a perfect solution for a historical moment."
Hypocrisy at their finest; with the Left, the hypocrisy is nothing new.
