Dean my county was one of the 1st in the nation to build a state of the art
sorting facility... all garbage in the county is sorted & recycled.. it was
mandated that any garbage generated in my county had to go to the
facility... <sigh yes it was more expensive than hauling it an extra 100
mile to a land fill, but hey what's the use of government mandates if you
can't tell folks what to do> anyhow waste could be pre sorted by citizens
placing their trash into different receptacles or have the center sort it
for you.. haz waste had to go separate, but it could still go with the
hauler until now.. i expect there to be some lawsuits and anti trust issues
hammered out in the upcoming months due to other issues about the city
garbage truck operating at below cost (driving out competition, by tax payer
subsidies biz) anyhow... normally this intrusion into my liberty doesn't bug
me too much... but it is April 15th and I'm just a TAD GROUCHY
1st tax reform law I would do:
would be to move elections to the day after you file your taxes...
2nd would be to eliminate withholdings and make folks write quarterly

effective April 26th Ohio just wrote a mandatory recycle battery law....
citizens grab your wallet...big bro is painting a target...
Sounds like Ohio is a couple decades behind if we are still talking
automotive batteries. That's a nasty item to throw into a landfill or
incinerator. Dry cells aren't much nicer if you think about it, just
smaller. Lately, I save all my dry cells and take those to the hazmat
thing once a year. It's a pretty heavy bucket, usually.
This brings me to a thing I thought about a few months back. You take a
new 1.5 volt dry cell and it gives maybe 1.614 volts. and when it's dead
(enough that it won't run a digital camera) it still has most of 15 volts
going in the garbage. I wonder if some guy could get rich with a gizmo
that sucks out that last voltage and accumulates it somewhere for future
use. I don't know shit about electronics, but... isn't a diode sorta like
a one-way check valve? dang...
better get started on my taxes...
