Your Trash Gives You Something That You Treasure

My dad works for a power company. They are currently making energy by way of solar- and wind-power. However, my dad USED to design power plants that burned garbage. If only people would cease to compost their pizza boxes, etc., we could create all our energy using our own garbage! Look, nobody is going to compost their maxi pads, etc., and when the super-volcano under Yellowstone Park blows this next time the solar panels and wind turbines will stop working due to the massive amounts of mineral ash anyway, so it makes the MOST sense to be ready to burn our garbage to produce electricity when that time comes...and it IS coming -- SOON. The upper-midwest is almost entirely devoid of landfills because of the line of work my dad was in. I greatly disagree with recycling most everything. Sure, glass and metal aren't easily combustible, so go ahead and recycle that stuff, but throw your juice boxes and milk jugs in a trash bin. Then thank my dad for your next hot shower and that the traffic lights in your city work properly.
God bless us for having garbage, and God bless my dad for his great work.

Another South Hadley High Suicide

High school student Phoebe Prince was so tired of being bullied all day every day by her schoolmates that she finally hit one of them back. She was removed from the school and sent home, where her mother had the audacity to ground her. How can Miss Prince's mother consider herself NOT at fault for her daughter's death?

Ms. Prince, your daughter was being beaten and mocked so badly that she felt it necessary to interrupt her peaceful demeanor long enough to strike back. You thought it was so unreasonable for daughter to defend herself that you grounded her. You so couldn't have your child's back when she needed you for all those years of bullying, and yet felt you must best that perfect record of ignorance of her agony and grief by punishing her for defending herself...and you think it was the kids at school who caused her to off herself? No. Not by a long shot. It was you. Nobody kills themselves over the way they are treated by their peers, regardless of how bad that treatment is. Kids commit suicide because their moms weren't there for them when they needed them. I would wager that you ignored her cries for help and attention when she was in her formative years as well. This was just the cherry bomb on her lifelong urinal cake. You're pathetic, and you're an unfit and incompetent mother. If you had had so much as one drop of warm blood-love for your daughter, she would be alive. You may think you lost a child, but she lived her entire life without a mother. Shame on you.
