Keeping the city clean starts with personal responsibility
Intentions here were to offer opinion about Sen. Elizabeth Warren who should be the next president of the United States.
Then there’s racial anxiety mixed with police behavior tension in Tulsa and Charlotte which connect to NFL quarterback protestor, Colin Kaepernick.
This column sparked with a Back Talk contribution.
Cleaning up Trenton
“Regarding the article in the Friday, Sept. 16 paper on page 10 on Trenton Mayor Jackson. Apparently, the mayor is not a proponent of effective clean ups either. Just wanted to throw that out there. Apparently, the same thing goes for Mr. Parker. Mr. Parker, maybe you should go out there and start something. Maybe get some of the neighborhood people together and actually show us a little of the cleanup himself then put it in the paper.”
This Back Talk entry changed my entire day as the contributor set my soul on fire.
So, here’s the scenario. I’m going to crap my pants, not just today but for tomorrow and the next day. The crapping will continue until somebody, a neighbor or city official smells or sees my crap.
Neighborhood residents and city officials organize to visit my house and clean up my crap. Uh, you missed a spot there. Thanks for cleaning me up with such purpose, determination and dedication. See you next time the crap flows.
The Back Talk contributor highlights the reason this city, county and country heads off to hell in a Gucci purse. No expectations of personal responsibility exist any longer as goody two-steppers bend over backwards to help those poor unfortunate souls who have lost their way and have no understanding about how to work a broom, rake or mop.
Clean up after other people? Not happening. I did that years ago then decided that in the best interest of my time on Earth to keep clean my sidewalk, stoop, butt, house and garden then head off to play golf, lay on the beach, see grandchild No. 1, eat Rossi burgers and steak fries, and enjoy my life.
Being detached from politics allows the freedom to say tough things to people without fear of being dismissed during the next election.
Chambersburg is being overrun by garbage, urine and noise by Latinos, African-Americans and Caucasians. If I were in charge or served as a representative, no coddling could exist.
Forget about that “Make America Great Again” slogan being slung by Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. We, my people, would gain a landslide victory with a “Clean Up Your (Crap)!” agenda.
No doubt exists that people who maintain their properties would love any politician willing to speak the truth, even if such chutzpah meant no reelection and an absorption of ridicule for being anti-Hispanic, anti-African American, anti-Hungarian, etc.
Information about the city’s initiative would receive transmission through every language spoken here until October 31, followed by a release of ticket writers, inspectors and police officers. A special judge would hear complaints that lasted two minutes.
Judges would voice a rebuke and “Clean Up Your (Crap)” advice. Next.
This city remains plagued by television sets, garbage bags, automobile tires and mattresses. In fact, never has one city put out for garbage collection more mattresses than Trenton, a clear signal that peoples’ lives show improvement.
Put on your comprehensive caps and understand that Trenton’s garbage problem connects to our crime issues, that all those abandoned boarded-up houses, the blight, every illegitimate rental, every despicable landlord, adds up to one heaping mountain of crap.
Do not expect me or anyone else to do more than our fair share. Of course, they have that option but Trenton needs more people to challenge others about their living habits.
For the record, people on my block set a good example about cleaning up. We enjoy a fantastic diversity and people who look out for each other, especially our elderly neighbors.
Help always exist for them but everyone else in the City of Trenton should know that they are responsible for their own crap. Period.
Furthermore, city leaders should know that if they cannot convince residents to clean up then they will struggle to gain commitment on other agendas. Being clean represents a great mindset that dismisses being poor as an excuse for filth.
Oops. Just pooped myself. Again.
Better call city hall.
Chambersburg’s Division St. offered another residence piled with trash.
