Iím on the bus, traveling towards the place I still call home. I am in the prairies, and I see some things. I see a girl next to me with at least 2 foot long dreads, and who has more leg hair than I do. I see cows on the fields, thinking about the recent outbreak of Mad Cow disease and the panic it generated. I see oil pumps, sucking the black liquid from the earth. In the background I see giant wind generators. I see trains miles long, all waiting to be filled with grainÖ.so much grainÖÖI see farms with outdated equipment and independent farmers struggling to make a living, competing against the huge corporate farm on the other side of the road with lots of shiny new equipment, and not a person in sight. I see trucks loaded with giant bars of steel, trucks with huge trees, trucks carrying bottled water. These things are all connected, they all exist to give us the things we want. I see a huge piece of land covered with old cars, trucks, and farm equipment. Hundreds of shells of manís wants. I see the beginning and end products of man. Thereís a ranch with over a thousand cattle, a train over 2 miles long. What are we really trying to accomplish? To have bigger graveyards of more sophisticated machines? We take everything from this part of our country. No hippies protesting here. We take food from the massive homogenous fields of wheat, canola, corn, etc. We kill thousands of cows, pigs, and chickens. We take oil from deep within the earth, we take iron from the land, scarring it forever. We take acres of trees, eliminating species, habitats, landscapes, and poisoning waterways. We take water from retreating glaciers because itís poisoned everywhere else in the world. We take the energy of the wind, which most people think is a good idea, with the exceptions of the oil companies, whose opinion is the only one that matters. But wait! We also give back to the land, We give back millions of tons of Carbon dioxide gas back to the trees who need it to breathe, we give back the iron we took, the shells of our cars, trucks, and machinery. We give back our trees, slightly modified, to carry our power from city to city. We give our grain to the animals so they can be happy, full, and fat. We give all our unused household items and food waste back to the landÖthe birds really seem to enjoy it! We also return our used and unused valuable insecticides to the rivers, doing the animals a favour, they donít like mosquitoes either. No one likes bugs. And finally we give our saturated bodies back to the earth, rich with nutrients back to the soil. America gives the best bodies.
