Barge litter to Canada
By Ken Lewis

Ok, I think I get it.
Between the litter issues in Ketchikan, where one letter writer
says (embarrassed for the town when the tourists are here) and
(I've never seen anything like this next door in Canada). Then
another says (I was told by European tourists that they were
surprised at the amount of trash seen along the roads. One German
tourist said you never saw things like that in Germany) and (It's
one thing to have a messy yard that YOU own), these words are
used to talk about garbage. Then a Canadian expressing how dreadful
it would be to be like us, writes a letter saying (There is no
way that I want my country to be part of a Union with a country
that has outlawed Habeus Corpus, advocates torture and attacking
sovereign countries without just reasons)
To the Canadian I say, you may feel differently about us shameful
Americans if you didn't allow the French to invade your country
and call their chunk Quebec? Abraham Lincoln suspended Habeus
Corpus for homeland security reasons, and Torture is not: Gitmo
Prisoners 20 pounds over weight and playing soccer! It is: Not
allowing our Marines to knock their teeth out when they throw
poop at them.
Now on the local litter issue, I find it quite simple. When you
train a dog, you give that dog Num-Nums. When you train a human
you give that human an incentive. If instead of making a local
home owner pay for a permit to build a tool shed, then tax him
for the floor space? Why not encourage that person to build a
structure to tidy up their eye sore property, and then knock
off ten percent of their property tax assessment for doing so.
A well trained home owner is not a human that cleans the road
side for countries their ancestors left behind; unless they are
encouraged to tidy their castle first. Call it stupid human tricks
if you like.
Did you know that without Global warming all of Canada and half
the USA would still be an Ice Sheet? If I vote for a politician
that says they will stop global warming, will someone send me
back to Europe or Africana please? I think Africana is what they
called land on earth, before continental drift?
War never stopped anything, other than Slavery, Fascism, Nazism
and Communism. Make love after the War. Off to sensitivity class
