The Oblongs

I’ve always liked cartoons. As a kid I watched Jem, Ninja Turtles, Strawberry Shortcake, Lady Lovely Locks, The Huggabunch, Tiny Toon Adventures, Doug, Rugrats, and many more. As I got older I still watched the same toons and added on new ones like Family Guy, Robot Chicken, King of the Hill, Daria, American Dad, and The Oblongs. Most of the shows are now in syndication so I catch them on Adult Swim late at night. Well, The Oblongs happened to be on one night at 1am. The opening credits played and I thought to myself, “My god if North Carolina doesn’t get it together we’re gonna be like the Oblongs.”

As strange as the Oblongs are they are victims of toxic waste. Though the show is meant for entertainment for countless people across the United States, it’s not funny. The affects of sludge spreading are taking the toll on our citizens. It’s no secret that cancer rates are on the rise in North Carolina and as our doctors and researchers stand dumbfounded the environmentalists are waving the proof frantically, but is anyone really listening and reading? If people are eating right, exercising, and avoiding other unhealthy habits, but still getting sick shouldn’t a red light and siren go off screaming, “SOMETHING AIN’T RIGHT!”

It’s time we start taking a SERIOUS non-bias look at our environmental status. Put your political affiliations, favors, greed, pride, and ego to the side and wake the fuck up! (yeah I said it) We cannot allow companies such as LabCorp, Synagro, and others to continue the improper disposal of medical waste. Stop blaming the pigs…there is no odor in the air so we know it’s not the piggies. Stop tricking farmers into sludge spreading. Guess what geniuses? YOU EAT THE PRODUCE FROM THEIR FIELDS! YOU DRINK THE SAME DAMN WATER AS EVERYONE ELSE!

And it’s going to take everyday citizens to stand up and say, “NO!” I’m so happy to see people in Virginia taking a stand against the uranium mine. It’s time for us North Carolinians to band together and write blogs, comment on news articles, write to our senators, write to our governor, hell write to the president. Who cares if they don’t respond to you personally; the point is they read it!

I don’t know about any of you, but I feel like my 3-5 days per week in the gym mixed with my healthy eating habits are a waste of my time and effort if my air, water, and soil are contaminated. Sure, my chances of survival are higher than a person who doesn’t do this, but I shouldn’t have to second guess drinking water from the tap (actually I don’t do it at all). I shouldn’t have to cringe bathing in water that hasn’t been run through a Brita filter. We should be able to enjoy North Carolina’s lakes and beaches. We should relax on our back porches sipping Duplin wine and other NC brands with absolutely no worries. We should drink Red Oak and Natty Green’s other NC beers with the same worry free mind.

There is NO pride in being dubbed the Cancer State. There is NO pride in having all these cancer facilities because we have so many cancer patients. There is NO pride in having gov’t officials that allow this crap to continue. Our state toast is as follows:

Here’s to the land of the long leaf pine,
The summer land where the sun doth shine,
Where the weak grow strong and the strong grow great,
Here’s to “Down Home,” the Old North State!

Here’s to the land of the cotton bloom white,
Where the scuppernong perfumes the breeze at night,
Where the soft southern moss and jessamine mate,
‘Neath the murmuring pines of the Old North State!

Here’s to the land where the galax grows,
Where the rhododendron’s rosette glows,
Where soars Mount Mitchell’s summit great,
In the “Land of the Sky,” in the Old North State!

Here’s to the land where maidens are fair,
Where friends are true and cold hearts rare,
The near land, the dear land, whatever fate,
The blest land, the best land, the Old North State!

I look at the Old North State and shake my head in a myriad of emotions. We have a beautiful state with a rich history and we are destroying it. Our gov’t officials ought to be ashamed and embarrassed.

Again it’s time to wake the fuck up or we’re going to be like The Oblongs.

Why Do I Care About Environmental Issues?

I haven’t been asked this question yet, but I’ll go ahead and answer it.

I care about environmental issues because I’m a human that needs water, air,  shelter and food to survive. Earth is the only planet  that is suitable for humans to live on, so why do we destroy it? Seriously, why do we tear this planet apart piece by piece? Personally, I think it’s because people are greedy and ignorant. Scientists and environmentalists are laughed at constantly. I don’t see anything funny about scientists and environmentalists. I don’t see anything funny about our only habitat being destroyed. Where will you live?

I’ve come across some people who have admitted they don’t care about environmental issues mainly when it comes to recycling. Yes, people I know it is very difficult for you to put your plastics in that little green bucket that sits out with your main trash can. I understand how hard it is to put paper in that same bucket. Taste my sarcasm?

It’s not hard at all people to recycle. It’s not hard at all to contact your local government officials and voice your concerns about sludge spreading. It’s not hard to ride your bike or walk to the corner store. It’s not that hard to put your trash in the trash can.
To sum it all up I care about environmental issues because I live on Earth. This is my habitat. You don’t see other animals tearing up their habitats so why do humans do it?
