the Government…Not at Work

So, for the new year.  As some warm weather has discarded newly fallen snow…’our trashy-ness…is revealed.

We belong to the earth (so quaint.)  The earth does not belong to us…(truth.)

Human feces, overflowing garbage, illegal off-roading and other damaging behavior in fragile areas were beginning to overwhelm some of the West’s iconic national parks.
“It’s a free-for-all,” Dakota Snider, 24, who lives and works in Yosemite Valley, said by telephone Monday, as Yosemite National Park officials announced closings of some minimally supervised campgrounds and public areas within the park that are overwhelmed.
“It’s so heartbreaking. There is more trash and human waste and disregard for the rules than I’ve seen in my four years living here,” Snider said.

the Whole Earth Revisited

As the earth steps back, flows…

ebbs and recedes.

It amazes me the difference between…

‘What we have been given!  And, what we feel we have received!’

a Naive Epitaph

chances-3

Sky, so threatening with 

Withered tales of naive summer.

Daylight clings to a drought of hope.

Innocence has lost its footing.

Once fertile fields, a now forlorn-ed scorn.

Seems the ages have squandered away…

with the springtime of life.

Possibility cut down with barren blades of a knife.

A challenge to those who dare not.

Provoking what has begun

and 

what will become.

A wide-eyed epitaph, indeed.

To not heed fair warning of obsolete weed.chances-1chance-2

the Taxation of Dirty Deeds

This…a response in congruence to a possible new used increased cigarette tax.  So, smoking?  Smokers?  Smoking guns?
What does society do with these white trash, get the trailer out and stir the gene pool with a used plunger…degenerates!
Does smoking increase the states ability to produce better roadways?
Yes!
Do smokers and their very bad habits help individual states to make educational improvements?
Yes!
In short, do these persons with such a disgraceful addiction help to balance a state’s  budget?
Yes!
What if we were to remove the nasty little Momma and Daddy’s little puffy helper?  Most states would be S.O.L.
710 billion pounds of, point of no return, trash is produced every year.

Westminster, Massachusetts is preparing to pass a local bill that would prohibit the sale of cigarettes within the town’s borders.  Good for you little town with little income.
Who will pay for the run down roads?  The now economically vibrant city next door?  Very doubtful!
Fact is; We need people who smoke.  We need people who gamble.  We need people who drink!
Where there is peace there must be war.  We would not know of calm and quiet without the need for killings and chaos!
What isn’t understood is why the less ‘rockstar’ deviant behaviors and actions…Don’t get more attention!
We love to hate smokers!  We aren’t so keen on hating people who fish off-season or hunt beyond appropriate borders.
Anti Smoking advocates have charisma!  It’s like comparing Bill Clinton to Nixon!
In relation to smoking, as opposed to finally putting an end to people who don’t pay their taxes?
15 million dollars tax dollars are spent picking up roadside trash!

…We can’t be certain who the villans are ‘cuz everyone’s so pretty…
So often we see the snide looks.  The broken nods of disapproval.  As, we smokers, single-handedly, cause all the strife that is wrong with the world.
America needs to have Rockstars…even, evil ones.
Recently, a young man had been held in a county jail.  Held for the negligent vehicular homicide of a local hero police officer.
What had happened?
The officer crossed against traffic during late afternoon solar glare, to catch a runaway would-be robber.
He had been struck by the teenage boy and killed!
The world, the family, needed to justify an obvious wrong.  To right the world again.  To make sense of such a tragedy.
Thing is tragedy happens.  And, usually, no one is to blame. And, no ‘good enough’ reason is given.
‘A lack of care to afflictions, not directly related to someone’s personal suffering, is the real issue.   And, that behavior is what truly needs banning.

…big business dumping carcinogens in the sky,water,land that are 20 times more potent that cigarettes ever could be. Many of the plastic throughout your kitchen is leaching cancer. Your home is built of many untested products that will later be exposed as more deadly than cigarettes.. Tax on cigarettes was a tax directed at poor people and employers simply want the money back they are so sure they earned, deserve more…

…Dirty deeds are often the backbone to removing ourselves from the larger issues at hand.  Pat a smoker on the back today and thank them for the new guard rails on 93…
