$100 Fine for Putting Trash Out Half an Hour Early

One strength of the Nanny State is that since there are too many rules and regulations for anyone to avoid falling afoul of, our bureaucratic overlords have endless opportunities to raise revenues. An example from Michael Bloomberg’s hyper-regulatory moonbat dystopia, New York City:

A Queens man is very upset after trying to put his trash out for collection and ending up with a ticket.

He, and others, are getting snared in an enforcement of a law that few people even know exists.

The scrooge award goes to the New York City Sanitation Department for the $100 tickets.

Raymond Janson says he received the $100 fine for putting his garbage cans at the curb 30 minutes early.

Janson is incensed at the excessive fine, levied without warning. But it could be worse. Last week an elderly woman in Brooklyn was fined $300 for not having lids on her trash cans. The reason she didn’t have lids is because she doesn’t have trash cans.

All that money New York pays parasites to be useless has to come from somewhere.

On tips from Sean and Bob Roberts.

    A surefire sign of a decadent society headed for the heap is a plethora of process crimes. Thousands of bureaucrats imposing their self importance on the polis by coming up with more and more ridiculous “crimes” based not so much on what you did, but how you did it.

    This is further proof of something I have said for years.

    The most dangerous person in any organization is the petty and incompetent bureaucrat that has been given power.

    The people of NYC deserve everything their limp-wristed little tyrant, a.k.a. His Majesty Bloomberg, does to them. They have allowed him to become a defacto dictator. Life in NYC has never been as oppressive, nor as expensive, as it’s become under the rule of the mega-Billionaire Fascist.

    On two separate occasions, the people voted for term limits for the mayor, and also the totally-corrupt city council. His Majesty spent $162 Million of his own money to buy a third term in City Hall, in defiance of the will of the people, and the NYC Charter. (law) All he needed was the approval of the city council, which they wouldn’t give him.

    After some “quiet meetings” with city council speaker Quinn, a radical leftist lesbian, Bloomberg got his third term. And guess what? The city council was also able to side step the law, and the peoples will, and get their term limits removed.

    If you’re foolish enough to visit NYC, don’t look in Little Italy (which is now all Chinese) to see organized crime figures. Look to City Hall.

    How’s that commie police state workin out for ya?

    You realize, of course that in order to determine that the trash was out more trhna 30 minutes ahead of time means that the city had some ticket writer, like a meter maid driving ahead of the trash pickup issuing tickets. That person is naturally PAID to do so to raise revenue for the commie ploiticians.

    Do you seriously believe that you can negotiate with or otherwise live peacefully in the same society with people who think that way?

    The time has come to take up arms against these vermin and rid the world of their evil. Sic Semper Tyrannis

    I swear, I’d make them put me in jail, and I’d have chest pain and shortness of breath every day (roughly $10,000 per ER visit for which the county is responsible.) Freakin’ bureaucratic gnomes!

    That’s just the tip of the iceberg. This city is unbelievable. It’s been like this for decades.
