Idiots get confused with politics, trash, recyclables. Are you speaking in reference to anyone specific? such as a friend, family member, neighbor? Maybe education could be your best bet for your sake and theirs. I know when my neighbor Steve moved into the neighborhood he barely knew anything about the trash companies that serviced our community, much less their political affiliation. Steve is no idiot either, he wears a bowtie, and works at a bank. So I can only imagine how much harder it is to explain this to an idiot. however, that being said, even if he is your neighbor, he should know where to put the trash. And like I told Steve last Wednesday, cigarette butts don't belong in the yard, they belong in the trash.
