Really? Out here where the rust belt crosses the Alleghenies, recycling is socialism!
And I don’t even want to think of the ridicule that goes on behind my back over the battery-electric motor scooter I have ridden to work almost every day April-November since 2006. Also, occasionally, an electric Smart car - you should see the looks of hate and hostility from the pickup truck drivers when driving that car!
You see, not only is not giving a shit very fashionable with the election of Trump, but there is a positive hatred of those who do give a shit.
To paraphrase Orwell, In times of universal deceit, giving a shit is a revolutionary act!
And I would have never guessed you are a Californian - I was thinking you were a fellow rust-belter - probably eastern Ohio. Or do you mean California, Pennsylvania in the rust-filled Mon valley!
