To: WI Conservative 4 Bush
recycling is something I've actually enjoyed doing over the years. I actually get some small satisfaction knowing that my aluminum cans, plastic bottles and newspapers are going to be reused as opposed to filling up the local land fill.
I know many people like this, including relatively conservative talk show host, Curtis Sliwa, of WABC radio in NYC.
The priests and priestesses of the so-called environmental movemnet have made acolytes of so many! Don't you, as a conservative (presumably, by your screen name), see the absurdity of adopting this 'feel good,' but futile and even counterproductive doctrine?
Awfully presumptuous of you to label me an acolyte of the environmentalist movement, just because I believe that recycling is a good idea for my family.

I am not into empty 'feel good' measures that's for sure. All I'm saying is that the counterproductiveness of recycling has not been proven to me. Believe me, I'll do some research to see exactly what happens to my glass, plastic, aluminum and paper here in Southeast Wisconsin. But, just because some plastic is piling up in Florida or New Mexico doesn't prove that recycling is bad...
Also, if you read my post, I'm not for telling other people what to do on this subject. Honestly. I think anti-recycling people get a little defensive, just as I think the environmentalists are a bit too radical. I'm a person that acts on my beliefs, and I'm not averse to re-evaluating my positions. I'll try to report on what I find out...
