Veggie Voyagers

Couple travelled 30 states and 3 Canadian provinces between 7/07 and 5/08 running their 1987 Ford truck on straight veggie oil. The blog continues with a focus on the natural world and energy politics from a personal perspective

John Lennon's Bday

So, I get to choose from the stimuli what to write about cuz everything is optional sez dear David Sisk.
Well, let's start with Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Is Early Detection the Best Protection or would it be better to understand the toxic effects of chemical substances before they are in use and control them if they are dangerous?



Which leads me to the subject of Capitalism. We saw the Michael Moore movie last night and were just sickened by the reality it presents. In this ad, the genocide of Native American people from this land mass, generally recognized as begining with Columbus, is overlooked/cutesified in order to get you to a sale.




Yesterday, I rode past the Walmart on my way to work in the morning and about 20 sprinklers were on. At 5:30 they were still on with runoff pouring into the storm drain. How many hundreds of gallons wasted?
There are a lot of people in Chico who want a cheap source of Chinese capitalism in the form of a supercenter to go on the "weed field" beyond this strip of overwatered green.
I'd rather have our Nobel President smiling into the eyes of the Dalai Lama, getting rid of Timothy Geithner, stopping the Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and fulfilling his campaign promises of CHANGE!
Live frugal. Avoid debt. Stop using toxics and clean up what's here. Use the earth's resources wisely because they do not belong to us. Give Peace a Chance. All these things I'd say are not options.
