A Viewer Writes........Parade Trash

Joe,
I live just off of Mt. Hermon road and Civic.
I went up and turned left on Mt. Hermon Parade Route and got as angry like you just don’t know after the parade.


Trash along Mt. Hermon including plastic bottles, soda cans and just trash in general.


What the HELL is wrong with people today that they just throw their trash anywhere and some one else has to clean it up.


Set an example for their children??
No Pride??
Sorry!! I am PO’D!
Has our society collapsed to this level???

Yes, Sir. This is the society we live in today. The dumbocrats are teaching everyone that someone else will take care of it. They have created an atmosphere where no one is responsible for their actions. There is no respect for people or property.

I own five car washes---you want to see pigs? Come on over on a Saturday and watch.

Sorry USN-Ret, you fought for a bunch of pansy's who don't give two shits about their rights, freedoms or have any respect for anything unless it includes a Facebook post... What do you expect from a bunch of dumb-down retards who eat tide pods? and do blind, no hand car challenges?

But hey as they are mostly to blame, lets nor forget the politicians who push this crap to kids, and for parents not doing their damn job raising kids... The schools now think they own your kids, think I am wrong, go try to get them out of school early or try to pick them up early and see what happens when the cop is called...

Let's get on the bandwagon about plastic straws and the end of world from pollution. Then jump in our yachts and sale the world. Take a look at Leonardo DeCRAPio and you will find the state of the youth. They learn from great examples.

Typical NAVY leaves the trash and then complains online about it... Navy takes their slogan literally.. See the world but don’t touch.

"Has our society collapsed to this level???"

Yes, yes it has. Drive down 13 towards the mall lately? Notice the increasing amount of people who feel that it is fine to just cross a busy street (not even from a corner) without even looking- like they just are daring you to hit them (they know they can sue you for everything you are worth, and they are right)

At a four way stop lately? Notice that no one seems to know who is supposed to go first anymore. How many times has it been you turn, and some jackass just takes off?

Been to a public restroom lately that isn't a scene from a horror movie?

Import the third world, become the third world.

I rode through the parade as a participant and the parade route was trashy then. I also rode down Rt. 13 in front of PRMC and further South the day before and noticed trash all over Rt. 13 for visitors and residents to see and not one person has been complaining. That's because they are OK with that $hit!

It’s Salisbury what did you expect? Nothing but a bunch trash individuals living here. No class!

It is not even close to as bad as it will get in the future.

Where trash cans distributed along the parade route for the onlookers use. I'm sure there would still be litter, but drastically less. But that still is not an excuse to litter

December9,2019 hit the nail on the head with his statement about not being responsible. They are taught in school it is not their fault but due to this or that or the fault of someone else. Just listen to the liberal mouth pieces from Hillary Clinton on down to local mayors when they get caught, always due to someone, something else!!

You can thank Jake Day for the new demographics he's attracted to Salisbury. We've got some fine outstanding citizens living here today. Went down to one of the local convenience stores (11am) and in walks one of Day's finest still in pajamas, with a cap on her head and bedroom slippers

When you have trash leadership you will have trash followers. Welcome to Salisbury.

Northwest Woodsman: In the past,10:33, I have seen the same thing at Walmart. Also, I’m willing to bet that the majority of the trash left behind after the parade was left by her demographic. In all my years, I have observed only one demographic throw trash out of a vehicle on to the side of the road and it wasn’t Scandinavians. I reside on an island with a homogeneous demographic where everyone sort of looks like me. In ten years, I have seen trash on the side of the road probably less than five times. I chose to believe that trash probably was Unintentionally blown out of the back of someone’s pickup. Then, also, I have and have seen others stop and pick up roadside trash because they take pride in their community.

So you saw some trash left behind from the crowds that came to watch the parade. Big deal. There's always a cleanup function to every mass gathering. Get a life. With all the serious things to worry about in the world, and you get all bent out of shape over a little trash (that will be cleaned up). The writer has an "holier than thou" attitude than commands him to try and chastise large groups of the public. Too bad he's retired. He must have liked that regimented life that told him everything he could do, and not do (and say). Military men are not allowed to think for themselves. And when the lifer gets out, he wants to criticize all the civilians. Over parade trash. Sheesh. If it bothers him so bad, and he has all that time and pension money to give him the like of Riley, then he could do some "public service" and go clean up his neighborhood. Not that a retired military man would EVER consider public service with no pay and benefits.... He would love nothing better than to "order" the civilians to clean up the trash. But alas, he has some adjusting to do.

Hey 1106am, I strongly disagree with your assessment of the writer. He does not have a "holier than thou" attitude ( your words). He simply is frustrated with people not taking responsibility for their actions a cleaning up their mess. How do you know he/she has not cleaned up road side trash?? Why put down his military service, jealousy?? Most military service members are honorable people that go I to service because they love this country. What have you done to better this community, the city, this country?

Only if blowers are strong enough to blow away the real trash. The trashy ones that leave the trash.

really 11:06? guess you never learned the meaning of respect for the environment and those around you? anyone willing to accept crap in little things will have an even crappier life in the big things!
Must be nice to be so carefree and devoid of values!
you rant because someone would like others to clean after themselves?
What pray tell are the serious things keeping you up at night? wondering if mommy and daddy will throw you out?
guess you've never heard the military term adapt and overcome!
to damn funny!

Not jealous. I served my time in the military, honorable discharge, good conduct medal, Vietnam veteran. I AM one of the "honorable" ones that served. I did my duty. You sound like a faker that never served. I never cared for the lifers. Most were alcoholics. I keep my yard AND my neighborhood clean. You are quick to judge, while knowing nothing about me. I believe you might be touched with a little of that attitude.

What's that "mommy and daddy" crap? My mother and father passed away long ago. As far as the military, I served, honorably, I might add. Been there, done that. And the the word to use in "to damn funny, is "TOO" Your writing skill indicates you're the one that might still be living with "mommy and daddy". And Salisbury's trash on the side of a parade route certainly does not keep me up at night like the people I've triggered with my comment. What keeps me up at night is my laughing at all the people I've triggered today.

Yes, society has collapsed. Not over political differences, global warming, political correctness, racism, or the myriad other problems affecting this nation. Yeah, it's collapsed over parade trash. (SAR)noted because some people can't recognize sarcasm when they see it.

USN=RET here.
While on a Med cruise on Forrestal I had the good luck to be able t take leave and go on a guided tour of southern Germany. While walking down a street in Munich we saw an elderly lady on a bicycle stop, put her bike on the stand and go to the curb and pick up trash which she put in the basket on her bike.To this day I will never forget her and her beautiful city. That is PRIDE. And, YES I did pick up some cans and recycled them.

Parts of Salisbury look like a third world country. Between the hibonics crowd and all the illegals here what the hell do you expect? Jake Day has them ALL believing he's on their side and they can skate through life free and careless and someone else will be responsible. We have a very big % of bottom feeders living in Salisbury today that think getting the government to pay for a meek and pathetic existence is living. No pride in themselves and no pride in community because they own nothing. They live in salisbury's abundant rental properties and ride around in 40,000 whips. Welcome to Jake Day's progressive liberal world

I'm sure it takes alot less to keep you up at night, especially if you're so narcissistic that you think a few words on a blog "trigger" anyone. I'd bet those discharge papers are less than honorable

Northwest Woodsman: Sorry 1:39 if reality slaps you in the face and offends your sensibilities. I write from experience and personal knowledge of events and circumstances that many others might not have the same perspective. When I make a statement, I try to insure that it is truthful and extremely difficult to refute. I am not troubled by the label racist because it really has no meaning. I consider myself to be a race realist. I may be guilty of being a realist about race and I sincerely wish that the truth about demographic violence and criminality were not so. Everyone who can read and think critically has to agree with me because the facts are right there in your face. Yes, I do discriminate as everyone does. I selected my spouse for certain reasons and discriminated against those who did not meet my criteria for a lifetime companion. The fact that she is blonde with green eyes was nice, but not the deciding point. Yes, I do like to be with others who share my culture, religion, language and values. Certain ethnic groups really do not share those characteristics so why should I be forced into an artificial relationship? Take a hard look at the crimes and violence that occur just in Salisbury and look at the photos of the perpetrators and tell me that I’m wrong. I’ll bet that you look at the problem from an emotional standpoint and reality and truth are inconvenient to your wishes for a fairytale world in which you can signal your virtue and watch everyone enjoy some form of diversity. Good luck my friend.

This started as a trash issue after the Salisbury Christmas parade. Well... downtown Princess Anne was left no better than Jake Day’s Salisbury parade after Lionel and Garland’s parade.

Yes. There is pride in Salisbury. There is going to be be a Pride parade this summer.

There is always trash left after any major event that attracts a lot of people. Not just in Salisbury, but all over the world. Unless you have garbage cans every few feet, some people are very lazy and will just drop trash wherever they are because they just don't care. The people who do care will walk a little farther to find a garbage can or take it with them. You can't define either as liberal or conservative. Yes, I understand you're angry that they leave a mess, but you can only control your reaction, not their actions. Chill a little. It's the holiday season. Peace.

It starts with the parents. Recently I had an electrician doing some work for me and he brought his 4 year old with him. I gave the child a piece of candy and after he took the wrapper off he looked around and finally said " where do you keep your trash can" He was Cuban. I tell you this because it was so refreshing.

It just reflects on your city and the character of it's citizens. I watched part of the parade on pac14 and WTF is a " WE HERE CAR CLUB, BLACK KNIGHTS MOTORCYCLE CLUB, AND CROWN VIC CAR CLUB?" That in itself speaks volumes of Salisbury today
