Egypt made the mistake of wiping out the pigs, and it’s a mess. Literally. While the New York Times article is about their May decision to cull the pigs and the resulting trash piling up in the streets, the first thing I thought of was socialism.
In the US, big government has stamped out the right to throw garbage in the streets. Most Americans are forced to pay to dispose of their garbage, and their right to dump it in a ditch is severely curtailed. The freedom to burn your garbage is fast disappearing. The horrible tax-and-spend government decrees that roads must be trash-free.
Write your Congress person today–tell them to vote against socialism. Tell them it’s time to end mandatory trash hauling. Kill socialism–viva la pigs!
