Environmental Activist forced to abandon Standing Rock, leave behind over 1,000 tons of garbage

Following the signing of Executive Order by President Donald J. Trump, environmental activist have been forced to leave their Standing Rock campsite.  A site they occupied for months protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline.  As usual these radicals left behind their mess for others to clean up.  Something that those who observe such protest have grown use to.  This time it has been estimated that over 1,000 tons of garbage along with huge quantities of human feces was left as a sacrifice to Mother Earth.  But let's not jump to the wrong conclusion.  Perhaps these youthful guardians of the planet believed their garbage and sh*t would serve as a fertilizer and provide more grass where the buffalo roam.  At any rate construction on the pipeline has resumed and soon the black gold will be flowing along it full length.  Oil, that before, had to be trucked or transported in railroad tank cars.  Something that is far less environmentally friendly and much more likely to result in a spill.  I do however, hope the Standing Rock Sioux were fairly compensated for the land where the pipeline runs.  But it is great to see a President who is more concerned about making our nation energy self-sufficient, than one who buckles down to environmental activist who actually know little about the natural world, having spent most of their lives surrounded by their office walls on the 15th floor of some San Francisco high rise.
