    Of course, every mine operator will gladly and voluntarily reform their inactive sites because…because…they’re good corporate citizens?

    And each mess should be called a Trump Dump.

    Trickle-down at it’s best.

        The better for whom, the public corporation whose only goals are fostering growth – in their stock prices and declared dividends? It’s not like they will happily incur the expense of new hires or benefits improvements for existing staff; imagine the impact on the bottom line!

        The better for the environment? How is that even possible, or do we write it off and say that we were put on the planet to subjugate it?

        The better for tomorrow? Or is today all that matters, and that by the time our grandchildren are old enough to care, they will have created a Poly Razzmatazz methodology of cleaning up after or mess? Or do we also pass along indifference and inconsideration?

        Myopia isn’t in America’s best interests for the future.

        And if every comment in defense of The New has to reflect upon ‘how bad it was during Them Dem Years’ then you lose every argument because you believe POTUS only looks good in comparison to other criminals? If he has to lean up against a bad column in order to keep falling down, then there are problems bigger than the column.

          Hey Reality, allow me to borrow a line from the former POTUS that apparently you and Ron voted for twice. I won and you lost. Get in the back of the bus. I am going to do it my way, the Progressive way.

            Sorry to disappoint you, Agent of Discord, but I could not, would not and did not vote Democrat. Hillarity didn’t deserve my vote because she too is a Swamp Thing, with nothing to offer. I am either a conservative Dem, or an independent and vote for the country, not the party and not entirely for the candidate.

            No Mittens, no buttons, though I did vote for Checkers, and twice for Bonzo’s co-star though he let me down with trickle-down economics which yet again seems poised for a dribble and not a torrent.

          May several lumps of coal arrive in your stocking this year.

            LOL. True story. I used to live in an old house that still had a coal bunker under the porch. Used to wrap a couple of lumps in silver foil to use in my kids stockings.

            Gotta keep critters on their toes.
