Microbeads threatening waterways

Microbeads threatening waterways.

  • All those cute soaps and exfoliates seem to be coming back to haunt us.
  • Apparently our water plants don’t have small enough filters to catch these microbeads.
  • So they talk about how the fish in Lake Erie are eating this crap.
  • Oh, and they are being found in the oceans as well. WONDERFUL.
  • The beads are made of plastic and they absorb pollutants from the water and air.
  • Those include pesticides, PCB’s, and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons.
  • Those last two have been linked to cancer in people.

So this is the kind of crap that apparently NO ONE looks into before creating this crap. But I doubt that, because SOMEONE is smart and said, “Hey, where do these go after they wash down the drain?” And the company said, “Who cares? We are here to make products which make money.” You may think that sounds a bit out of line, but I highly doubt it’s that far fetched.

One thing it didn’t mention was OUR DRINKING WATER! They just talked about fish. Well, guess what if the fish are getting it, then what is stopping my drinking water from getting some? They make no mention of our drinking water filtration sizes.

No-kill backers slam PETA for shelter policy

No-kill backers slam PETA for shelter policy.

Awesome. Figured out how to just press these articles right into WordPress.

Now to just add my 2 cents.

  • PETA kills an average of about 2,000 dogs and cats each year at its animal shelter
  • The shelter in VA arranges hardly any adoptions
  • 19 cats AND dogs in 2012
  • What?! 19 cats and dogs in an entire year?! WTF?!

PETA, don’t come asking me for money. I call B.S.

Also, let’s be honest here. They can’t ALL find homes, but ummm is PETA “no-kill”? Cause I have no clue, but I would assume they are. So now I’m just confused. It’s turning into a Religious type thing here. Oh, I go to church, buttt ummmm yea I still judge people ALL DAY LONG. You preach one thing, and do another. That is what I can’t get into or accept.

Something new to write about…

More and more I find myself reading the paper and even though I come away more informed, I also come away more pissed off. I thought about it before and I just thought about it again. So that means it’s time for me to start sharing some of the issues and things that are going on, but with my own opinions and thoughts about them as well. 

You will see a link to the original article as long as I can find one and that will most likely be at the beginning of the post. I hope you all come away more informed and also comment your own opinions, even if you disagree with what I have written. I am an open minded individual and of course, being human, I am not always right! So if you see something that should be thought of or noted, please chime in! =)

So there you have it. Now to start posting. The posts will probably be shorter in length and most likely more frequent unless I don’t come across anything that I feel I should share with others. There is so much information out there but I see everyone posting statuses on fb about their lives and it’s rare to find someone share a link of actual importance. 

I just want to see if I can do something to aid that. Thank you for reading. 

 

Things I can work on:

  • When I start a project, finish that project before starting another one
  • Continue to work on my patience
  • Even though video games are a hobby of mine, spend more time working on moto
  • Create a chore list for everyone in the house and stick to it
  • Get more sleep
  • Think first, talk/react second
  • Try actually counting to 10 (see above)
  • Spend less money
  • Save more money
  • Pay off debt quicker
  • Remember I deserve nothing
  • My diet (stop eating out, fool)
  • Cook more, eat better
  • Supporting local business
  • Being thankful for what I have
  • Help other people get what they want
