Kickass, the doorstop dog, says the keeper loves swamps, in part because they are more or less immune to human invasion by dint of unsure footing and their lack of appeal as fast-food franchise locations. So, calling a place like Washington DC a swamp is an insult to swamps everywhere, and then to further say that it needs to be “drained” compounds the insult.
DC is not a swamp, it is an over-used landfill and it needs to be replaced with a recycling center that does not accept great amounts of animal waste as is currently the case.
Banning plastic straws! Come on, folks! There is a madman driving the garbage truck and we are all aboard, cozy in our dumpsters with gutless leaders sitting on the lids so we can’t see where the hell we are going–not to a nice healthy natural swamp, that’s for sure.
