Potentially Unconstitutional Garbage Service in St Paul Found to be Potentially Unconstitutional by Citizens Who May Have Read The U.S. Constitution at Least Once in the Last Year

ST PAUL, MN — The recent rollout of citywide government operated garbage collection program smacks of potential unconstitutionality, offering a single service provider, infringing upon freedom of speech of its citizens while operating, potentially, as a monopoly.

Some residents have said they enjoy the varying size options on containers, offered with previous providers: small, medium, and large, respectively, though, with winter being overly extreme because of global climate warming change, the service quality has been lackluster from the new service provider.

Had a citizen had their first amendment rights fully intact, they could choose from better quality providers, instead of just one, and be able to use their voice to vote with their dollar. Furthermore, a diverse provider option could provide service for those who choose to opt-out in attempt to promote a zero-waste option.

Certain things are a waste of time, reading the US Constitution is not one of those things. Citizens reserve the right under the Constitution to voice their free speech, even in selecting and employing a garbage service provider. The first amendment has jurisdiction throughout all of America, for all citizens, even regarding our trash and who takes it.

Primary Election Results; Remembering that I voted for the candidate with the best name

SONY DSCMPR News: Primary 2014 Results

Not unlike every single election I have ever taken part in, I voted for the candidate with the best name.  A name that stood out this primary was Tom Books.  If Tom Books is your name you are definitely going to get the intellectual vote. 

Aside from that, I knew not the stance of the candidate I was voting for, nor what they thought about high tuition, Sunday Sales Laws, and or equality.  On a whim I voted for Doug Mann, and surprisingly against Phyllis Khan.  I took the opportunity to vote Independent party all the way down because Republicans just fund wars and Democrats pretend to be against wars and fund them as well.  It felt good to vote against an incumbent that hadn’t done much for me (noticeably). 

Candidates should be more transparent, and have better names. 

All in all my vote was cast and counted, and it felt good!  Go Vote!
