Mayor Of Trash Covered Worcester Condemning Trump For Leaving Paris Agreement And Vowing To Invest In Green Technology Is LOL Funny
Last week President Trump upset a lot of people when he withdrew from the Paris Climate agreement. I’m not gonna lie, I didn’t even bother researching the topic. The whole thing bores me. All I know is, conservatives are all about it, liberals hate it because they think Trump just destroyed the planet, and they all have the memes to prove it. I’m more interested in the hypocrisy I saw out of Worcester Mayor Joe Petty and his boy toy City Manager Fast Eddy Augustus. From Worcester Magazine:
City officials are not on board with President Donald Trump’s decision to pull out of the Paris climate deal. In a statement released Friday afternoon, Mayor Joe Petty and City Manager Ed Augustus Jr. doubled down on commitments to invest in green technology and clean energy.
“As our federal government retreats from its responsibility as steward of our environment, it is vitally important for state and municipal governments to uphold our commitment to the future of our planet,” said Petty. “If the president doesn’t want to do it, we will,” said Petty.
The city has invested in more efficient HVAC units in its buildings, put solar panels on roofs and in parking lots, swapped light bulbs in the DCU Center and in streetlights for LEDS, and built a large solar farm on the former Greenwood Street landfill.
“We’re already making investments in green technology and initiatives that will pay off for both taxpayers and the environment,” said Augustus. “The job of governing is often about balancing competing interests, but the beauty of these green energy initiatives is they help protect the environment, save money, and improve the city’s performance for our residents.”
So let me get this straight. Mayor Puddy is concerned about our “commitment to the future of our planet.” And if the President isn’t going to take care of the planet, than “we will.” As in Worcester. Ya got that? Worcester is going to save the planet. And we’re going to do that by “making investments in green technology and initiatives that will pay off for both taxpayers and the environment.”
Hey Puddy, here’s an idea if you want to make an “investment in green technology” – invest in some of these:
Because every time there’s a slight breeze on recycling day, this is what the streets of Worcester look like:
It’s just so hypocritical you can’t help but laugh at it. Worcester looks like shit. This isn’t me being cynical. It’s an absolute sty. There is trash EVERYWHERE that doesn’t get cleaned up. The fact that our leaders think we give a shit that they installed some solar panels and more energy efficient HVAC units shows how out of touch they are. What’s that gonna do? Save the polar bears? How freaking stupid do you have to be to believe that Worcester, this little city in a little state in a country that makes up just 5% of the world’s population, has the power to save this insanely gigantic planet by installing solar panels?
Hey, here’s an idea if you care about the environment so much – stop investing in all this worthless crap, and start paying people to go around and pick up trash. Because we took a little slum sociable today to document the current state of the city while our leaders lecture us about protecting the planet. Join us….
So the sidewalks in most neighborhoods on the wrong side of Park Avenue are basically trash receptacles for soiled clothing
Chairs that have been converted to Dunkin Donuts coozies
Urine soaked mattresses
And trash heaps of broken dreams
The parking lots at pretty much any plaza have crud all over them
The few green spots where people actually take care of their lawn on busy streets seem to attract more trash than any others
Then there’s the parks. Here’s Crompton Park, where the first thing you’re greeted by is an empty beer bottle
Obviously NO ONE is paid to clear out the trash cans on a daily basis, so the locals just kind of improvise:
And when they run out of room they throw their two liters and water bottles on the grass
There are RIP memorials in the middle of the park, because apparently these people have a permit to honor their fallen like they died invading Okinawa
Oh, and the memorials themselves have turned into impromptu trash bins as well
The basketball court is covered in shit
As are the benches
And remember when we did that blog a couple years ago, showing what people see when they drive through Worcester on 290?
Yea we went back to that same exact location today to see if Mayor Puddy bothered trying to clean it up. Looks like the “green initiative” isn’t going too well on Vernon Hill:
It’s the same way it was two years ago, except now there’s a guy with an iPhone who lives there and the disgusting looking weeds have grown so much that they cover it up from a distance. Nevertheless, it’s all still there, and it’s all still terrible for our planet. But yea, tell me more about how concerned our leaders are about the environment. Let’s vote these jokers out in November. Petty is a disgrace and an embarrassment. Jump on the Gaffney train and vote for him for mayor, and his wife Coreen City Councilor in District 4, as well as Paul Franco in District 5. Take your city back.
