I had a friend die the other day from cancer. I have 3 other friends that have cancer right now. Only one of them is over 60 years old.They all work out, all weight train, and watch their diets relatively close. Better than 90% of the population, I reckon. It makes you wonder , right? Makes you wonder just what the hell is going on. The fucking water supply, pesticides. I had a farmer tell my son how they spray pesticides all over their farm. What choice does he have? No crops, no pay, no food. And the government doesn't see the need to ban this stuff.  They are too busy insider trading to worry about us little folks.What always makes me wonder is how these corporations who make this stuff and the government who allows this stuff , don't see that it affects them too. They have kids, too. Grandkids, wives, husbands. It's in your bloodstream, it's in everyone's blood. These evil assholes are all living here and eating the same shit and breathing the same air as all of us. You can't escape it , no matter how powerful you are or how much money that you have. I talked to a guy the other day who used to work for the water commission. or whatever they call it, in Philadelphia years ago. The guys in charge of the drinking water in the city. He said, "Dude, you wouldn't believe what's in that water, rats, bugs, all kinds of shit." We try to eat organic and then I read about the organic farms next to a pesticide farm, how it bleeds over into the organic field. 

I see it when I go hunting. Plastics everywhere, I mean all over the place. I hunt the Susquehanna River in Maryland sometimes and washed up on the shore is so much plastic that  it is disgusting. Plastics are a huge problem. Our local supermarket leaves crates of bottled water outside the store in the summer. Nah, none of that leaches into the water. Too much money to be made, too much power to be had, too much corruption every damn where, allowing all of this stuff.  

I live on a good sized creek. You can't eat the fish out of there, no way. It's too polluted. Hell, you can't eat the freshwater fish anywhere in the state of New Jersey. And maybe you shouldn't eat the saltwater fish , either. 

All of it is a big toilet and plastic poison heaven. 

What are we leaving for the next generation(s)? A plastic planet, a pesticide planet, a planet that kills you and your family. And now, it is all too far gone to fix. We just keep taking it from these jerks. Do we even have a voice? Does anyone care?

All About Being a Lifer

What's a Lifer? Someone who isn't in to something for just a day, a month, a's for life. Whether its training or your family or your doesn't matter. You work at it, you build on it, you see the big picture . You don't miss workouts because it means something to you. You are like a Shakespearean actor- no matter what is going on in your life, you block it out when it's time to train. You walk into the weight room and all else disappears. Worry about it later.
