Politicians have been desecrating public property for years and no one has stepped in to stop them.
You don’t believe me?
I walked out to my mailbox today. Its sturdy black pole rises from the grass-covered dirt as its arched box reaches towards the street. With its single red ear, it reminds one of Vincent Van Gogh, though I doubt that he would have looked as spiffy wearing those metallic number stickers.
It waits to be fed.
Even though my lovely specimen was purchased with private funds, the interior space has government (i.e. public) ownership.
And as I opened my own shiny piece of government property, I discovered vandalism. I discovered grinning idiots on glossy brochures that try to scare voters into believing that other candidates would destroy the state, the country, and the sanctity of all “we” hold dear. Of course, there’s also the compulsory American flag waving proudly in all that hot air.
Those brochures had destroyed the monochromatic calm that had reigned inside my mailbox; neither they nor their distributors belong anywhere near public property.
Of course, the Capitol is public property too…
