Well done homework, with links to a current news story, earns the best grades. Don’t try mulcting unless you wish to risk a failing homework grade....or you have a really good bribe.

Obama-the-Undocumented Moslem and Terrorist-Supporter
has mulcted America by perjury, by fraud,
and is now installing the ultimate mulct
by forcing the USA to its knees in poverty, and in support
of al Qaeda which ALREADY murdered thousands of Americans.

I’ve found that heavy mulcting not only suppresses weeds, but reduces evaporation and improves the soil.
