It seems that a small town near Madrid has a very creative way of making dog owners think twice before distributing their pet's poop all over town with regard for others. Officials in the town of Brunete have gotten volunteers who look for uncaring dog owners, and strike up conversations. Once they get enough information from the violaters to look up their addresses, the dung is mailed back to the owners in a box marked "Lost Property." It is reported that 147 such deliveries were made during a week in February and there has been a 70 percent drop in discarded droppings since then.

As a resident of a big city and a responsible dog owner, I can appreciate the value of such an initiative, but I cannot resist thinking of the wider applications. While regular dog poop is certainly a health concern in many communities, there is a wider distribution of dung being heaved at us from above and below.

The poop from above comes from our government which, if you have not noticed, is serving us with even more fertilizer than ever lately, what with balancing three or more scandals at once and trying to look innocent in the process. The poop from below comes from our so-called mainstream media, which has proven itself so full of it as to render anything they say nothing but a hill of the stuff.

While we cannot literally return these daily deliveries of dung from the above two entities, we can do the next best thing, which is to at least identify it for what it is, call out the culprits, and avoid stepping in their deposits of fertilizer by buying anything they ever say.

So the next time you happen upon an unsightly pile on the street before you, do not get so upset. After all, you can always step around that deposit, unlike the daily deliveries we all receive from our leadership and their fawning mainstream media propaganda poop producers.

With God's help, perhaps one day we will be in a better national place than this, because right now we are knee high in this stuff.
