I seriously doubt that the main people in Long Beach who couldn't care less about recycling...the illegal hordes and the welfare types were attending the lecture at CSULB.

Lecturing the citizens who DO RECYCLE on the blessing of Recycling seems ridiculous but oh so typical these days.

"Political Correctness" keeps us from addressing the SOURCES of our problems.

Simple COMMON SENSE can't trump "political correctness" in what remains of our City.

Without a coherent policy regarding the deportation of illegal aliens, and the abolishment of anchor babies, talk of recycling, water conservation, and welfare reform is absolutely pointless. The power of numbers will undermine all conservation attempts.
Desalinization plants, and its mark on the surrounding environment are in our immediate future. Steeping in our own refuse has already begun. You can't get water practically anywhere that isn't tainted with plastic by products. Same with fish.
What dirty little outcome of the pro-illegal movement is that Latinos who would have had less children, and been far lower consumers of energy, are now stressing not only our infrastructure, but also our oil supplies. They are using gas that they wouldn't be using, if they weren't here.
So we all pay, big time. Five bucks a gallon for gas? That's the price of an open border policy. Water shortages? Bad roads? Lack of funding for simple infrastructure maintenance? Same thing.
To ask me to consider adjusting the quality of my life any further will have me laughing in your face. My air conditioner remains on all summer. My grass is watered daily. My car washed weekly. My 8 cylinder truck filled with gas to take me to the grocery store. I throw recyclables in the regular trash container. I could care less. I can afford it.
What do I care if I'm helping to trash an annex of Mexico called "Long Beach"? It's essentially their country on a daily basis, not mine. That was lost over a decade ago.
Let's have fun trashing the place while it's still trashable. Pay no attention to the brainless wonders rationalizing the makings of a social shipwreck. Plan for the wreck, and in the meantime party hearty! There's nothing to save. It's a wreck.

Mad props to the CSULB Recycling Center! It is an impressive operation. The young people who run it are nice and dedicated -- they chose a sweaty, dirty job instead of a relatively easy gig working the cash register at a store or fast-food resto. Don't forget, a few bucks in the tip jar are greatly appreciated.

For the consumers, it's a great crossroads where homeless bottle collector with a shopping cart meets gentle hippie in a Volvo. If nothing else, the recycling center helps remind us that we're all just two or three paychecks away from living under the freeway and collecting cans and bottles for our daily existence.

Even tho PBR Drinker has a very nice income, there's an undeniable pleasure when you turn in your aluminum cans and the recycling center guy gives you 5 or 10 dollars cash in return.

Hippies aren't driving Volvos. It's the prius and the mini cooper now. Keep up, dude.

You are so right! But the new cars don't hold as many recyclables as a rusty old 740 wagon.

Many say that today's Californains couldn't be more pathetic. Others say just wait until Cap and Trade AB32 starts chasing jobs out of the State. Only then, will the extent of our complete failure as citizens/voters/parents become truly apparent.

They can't export the recycling center jobs overseas, not as long as real men keep drinking Pabst Blue Ribbon in bottles and cans.
