Don't pollute the water or roads or highways. It kills rees. Please don't throw any rash on the ground. I am not a litterbug like some folks, but I pick up the litterbug*s rash and throw it in a rash can. Why don't we get a group called the P.C.U.T.A. and then it would get cleaned up fast. So why don't the grown-ups think about it and do something about it Now. The President would be happy that we cleaned his country up well. Maybe he would send us a picture of him for our very own and keep.
