Litter is not OK

“In the beginning, God created the Heavens and the Earth” All property owned by a person was originally owned by God. Litterers and their litter are appalling. It is disgusting and personally objectionable. While hundreds agree, few have ever picked up garbage and debris.

Follow me — watch me bend over and pick up people’s trash. Yes, theirs. I don’t litter.

Litter is not OK. Now share this with everyone. It isn’t criminal to admit mistakes. If you thought it was OK, this is your clarification — it isn’t. Litter will not disintegrate. Garbage and litter is OK only in an authorized receptacle. Subdue the Earth, don’t disgrace it. Spread His word, not garbage. Care for the Earth properly. Well-raised folk know throwing garbage is a violation — not the right thing.

You are lucky to live in this country which I served for nearly 30 years. Treat it with respect. Service to God and community has no expiration date. I expect all persons lucky enough to enjoy the freedoms veterans like me fought for to treat this country with respect. I need not repeat myself. You know who you are and what I’m talking about.

U.N. has an agenda

Name calling is the debate tool of the coward. The recent flurry of global warming believers begin or end their debate by saying, “no rational person can deny global warming.” They say this using the latest report by the United Nations.

Does no one remember that this report is produced by the same “scientists” that were caught hiding data, telling each other in e-mails to hide data and blackballing scientists whose findings contradicted theirs?

We have not experienced warming in 15 years. Last November was the coldest on record. We have been recording weather data for a little over 100 years, yet we use that data to measure the weather of a planet that has undergone ice ages so long that Michigan was under a mile-thick sheet of ice and periods of warmth so long that there is fossil record of tropical forests in Antarctica.

I believe China and India will do very well financially if these global warming taxes ever take effect. We will punish ourselves financially, trying to not pollute, while paying them to be the world’s largest polluters.

The U.N. has an agenda that requires us all to believe in global warming.
