AGAINST THE LAW: SEATTLE POLITICIANS SEEK TO BAN BEACH BONFIRES
The hippie morons who run Seattle strike again!
City bureaucrats are meeting later this month to decide whether to ban beach bonfires.
I’m looking at the weather page for Seattle. It’s currently 47 degrees. The “feels like” index is in the 30’s. And, of course, it’s overcast and drizzling. In June. Perfect fire weather, right? Not so fast.
According to today’s Seattle Post Intelligencer:
Seattle Parks and Recreation might do what even this week’s chilly weather couldn’t — douse the long tradition of beach bonfires.
Park department staff is recommending reducing bonfires at the two beaches this summer and possibly banning them altogether next year.
The park board will hear the recommendation Thursday, and the city plans to run public-service announcements and hand out brochures later this month about the effects of bonfires on global warming.
According to a memo to the park board from the staff released Thursday, “The overall policy question for the Board is whether it is good policy for Seattle Parks to continue public beach fires when the carbon … emissions produced by thousands of beach fires per year contributes to global warming.”
What a bunch of Communists! They’re actually thinking of banning bonfires to save the world from global warming. Jesus!
And if you think NOBODY would be that stupid, think again. These are the same politicians that have already banned certain runs of the Seattle fairies because they feared the wake of the boats (which move less than 10 miles per hour) might cause beach erosion.
By the way, any time you live in a city where you have to worry about running the “feels like” index in the paper every day in June ENOUGH with the fire banning.
