You are funny today "Dr. Nash". I was referring to the 20+ bags of garbage which over half is recyclables because they are too lazy to sort them. The rodents that hang around because of it. Also, the dogs that get into it and spread it all over, to create a massive eyesore. That can go for weeks before they bother to bend over and pick it up. Don't even get me started on the neglect of their animals and kids. Laying around all day is so tiring that no one plays with or supervises them. Ok, I will get off my soap box now. On to more positive thoughts.

Empty pizza boxes are bio-degradable. If you leave them in the yard long enough, the rain will turn them into rich mulch, along with McDonalds bags, newspapers and those ugly soiled Pampers. The old anti-freeze jugs make a good corner marker for the yard and a BB gun target for the boys. Oh, won't you be my neighbor. Stay off the back porch. Missy has a litter of puppies under there. She loves that big kerosene heater we fire up when the pipes freeze.

About those bags and ash trays on the porch--empty cheap beer cans, which could be recycled.

Can't afford food, need food stamps or heating oil or pay the electric or EVEN school clothes and supplies for the kids, but can buy beer and cigarettes.(Medicaid pays for the pills.)

You've got it right "porches" they can't afford anything else because of their booze, drugs, and cigarettes. Forget the kids getting even a book from the Dollar store or anyone taking the time to read it to them. They are to busy partying and watching the TV all day long. Why buy dog food or even getting a animal fixed by the USDA plan on the back of the re certification papers for welfare? They would rather blow the $30. and deal with all the puppies or kittens later, if they every get to eat. Hell, they can always eat from the massive pile of garbage out back or bother the neighbors and use their property for an area to go to the bathroom or have babies under their deck. Well, I am off my soap box for now. If this changed one persons mind to improve their life it was worth my time.

Not much hope for "changing minds" if their parents and grandparents have been living that way and that's all these people know.

I totally agree with everything said but it seems to pertain to
Ticonderoga so why in hell is it in Port Henry Forum? We have
our own problems which are very similar....
