WASHINGTON, D. C. IS NOT A SWAMP

A town is saved, not more by the righteous men in it, than by the woods and swamps that surround it. Henry David Thoreau
As our government shutdown marches on this morning a fraction of a headline on a reputable online news outlet caught my eye - "dysfunctional DC."
That led to a question and a thought ...
1. From whom and where did President Trump (when candidate) come up with the campaign trail soundbite "drain the swamp"?
2. Washington, D. C. is not a swamp.
A swamp is a natural ecosystem, gifted by God, that functions perfectly.
Washington, D. C. is a sh-thole, made by man, that functions every way but perfectly.
Mother Nature has the swamps.
God, help us!
