In some of the bigger cities the people that live in the inner city don't even use trash bags they just dump their garbage cans on the road and the street sweeper picks it up. There's also a lot of really really really lazy people around

Jesus... I heard a clip on the news about 10 tons of trash on a beach and figured it was a sapranos style dump job not from actual beach goers.....  Holy crap people suck.

 

This is precisely why we can’t have nice things.

This shows what can happen when you plaster high rise chain hotels on every inch of sand for miles and miles. I was forced to spend time there due to work tough beach town. That said I know folks that really like VB. I wonder what the numbers were at Myrtle Beach and other similar concrete jungles.

If the canal ever looked like that,I think the ACOE would close it down

to fishing and all other recreational purposes permanently.

This is a bad one time type thing, but I’m guessing the local gov’t is prepared and they plan accordingly. That doesn’t make it any better, but at least it is handled.

 

The Florida Keys have trash everywhere, every day of the year. It’s really sad. You see the ads on TV about visiting the beautiful Florida Keys, then everywhere you look is fishing line, bait containers, drink bottles, etc.

That's the beach at Deal Casino in NJ every weekend

They come down from NY with all new stuff and just leave it behind when they go back

I haven't bought a new beach chair in 20 years

I want to hear you actually say that all groups litter at the same percentage. That the problem is equal amongst all groups. Anyone who has been out there long enough knows this to not be true. 

I mean take race out of it for a moment and just think about when someone comes from an impoverished country with poor sanitary conditions and all those poor people are trying to do is survive. The concepts of litter and conservation are quite foreign to most of them. So when they come to the US who actually taught them that conversation and sanitary conditions were super important? Probably no one did. Everything I say is from my own experience over many years out there observing. I hate FOX news and Trump FYI so don’t just try to paint people as racist when there not. I try to be fair and look into the actual facts of a situation while people like you just put your heads in the sand. 

 

I could never understand why people defend their race no matter what is done, defend their hometowns no matter what the town is actually like or defend friends and family no matter what wrong they do. You call what wrong you see.....period. End of story. 

‘Here’s how it works:

Some of the most corrupt businessmen in this country are WHITE. Some of the most corrupt politicians are WHITE

Am I turning on my race for stating the obvious? I am American first and care about this country and it’s problems.  Using the race card to try to silence real facts is ridiculous and part of the problem in today’s world. Save the race card when obvious lies are being told.

The fishing community for a long time has pointed out foreigners as the chief perpetrators of trash. If you don't read that on web boards you have your head up your ass.

So you are saying littering is equal among all groups?  Maybe you have been spending too much time on your kayak the last 10 years or so because on the shore we have been seeing who’s doing what and how often. And on the web boards? What you mean the whole internet? How about just the Massachusetts forum. I find people in here pretty reasonable and you throw the race card? Guess what hero...white people posting online have cost us more access than any other race. All because they crave attention. I don’t know maybe mommy wasn’t there. See I said it cause it’s the truth. You don’t have an OBJECTIVE bone in your body. Now go back and play grab ass with Riptde or whatever you do around here.....

No, I am saying the accusations towards other ethnics groups has been going on for a long time. It's nice to see it the other way. Eff them.
