Each day the City of Mobile trash trucks are operating is another day the City of Mobile's dysfunctional garbage collection service litters the roads, the roadsides, and the roadside ditches with trash.
Ignoring trash spilled during garbage collection service is one of the main sources of roadside litter and ditch litter in Mobile. Thank you Mobile Public Works for continuing to litter the UGLY trashy City of Mobile.
I tried to honor my brother Bill who died of Asbestos cancer by trying to correct a present day wrong. A half century ago authorities knew it was wrong to use Asbestos but many still did. Today many are still dying horrible deaths like my brother did because leaders ignored the warnings about Asbestos back then.
Today we know it is wrong for a community to pollute their waterways and then ignore the pollution.
So, for the past four years I tried to get city, county, state and federal leaders, environmental groups, the media, and property owners to get the Mobile Community's trash removed from a 1/4 mile long waterway that indirectly connects to Mobile Bay. Four years later and no one has begun to remove the trash from that waterway yet. Talk about irresponsible leadership.
Sorry Brother Bill. Communities like Mobile are more interested in spending money for soccer fields made with rubber crumbs and wasting money on venues that lose money each year rather than removing their Community's trash from their polluted waterways. Ignoring obvious pollution should be a crime. ADEM and the US EPA have proven they are incapable of dealing with simple solid waste pollution problems. Government is broken morally and financially.
What will be the consequence 50 years from now to the young people of today because this sorry ass generation ignored the widespread pollution of the Earth's waters with the endocrine disruptors in plastics, light bulbs, solvents in paints and aerosol cans, and other trash found in Municipal Storm Water Trash (MS4) Pollution.
Endocrine disruptors can increase production of certain hormones; decrease production of others; imitate hormones; turn one hormone into another; interfer with hormone signaling; tell cells to die prematurely; compete with essential nutrients; bind to essential hormones; and accumulate in organs.
In this generation with men growing tits and women growing facial hair, obesity now being the norm, one might think the hormones in humans are screwed up. Duh! Now there are some Men trying to be Women and some Women that are trying to be Men. Marriage to the same sex is now acceptable in America. Yikes. Something is obviously disrupting the hormones in the human species, at least in America. What might be in our water? BPA, Phthalates? PBDEs? Lead? Mercury? Glycol Ethers?
Endocrine disruptor type trash can be found rotting in Mobile waterways because leaders and Environmental agencies and groups are CHOOSING to ignore MS4 storm water trash pollution despite the complaints and scientific warnings.
Waterways which could be beautiful tourist attractions are used as ugly garbage chutes by the Mobile community. That is fucked up.
Thank you Environmental and Mobile and Alabama leaders for your dedication to destroying the Earth's once clean waterway environments.
Ignoring the pollution of our waterways will only lead to more weeping and gnashing of teeth as growing Cancer rates prematurely destroys more human lives.
I can see why there is increasing frustration with Government. Government no longer represents the People. It represents Corporations and Criminals. It was said best in the Godfather movie. "Politics and Crime - they are the same."
I am done trying to make the City of Mobile a better place to live. Let the trashy shit hole cities of the south like Mobile, Prichard, and Bayou La Batre continue on their down their road to ruin.
The City of Mobile has yet another top ten accolade to add to its black belt.
While the Mobile City Council is quick to approve giving over a million dollars of taxpayer money to Mobile County to build a Soccer field complex off Halls Mills Road, quick to spend over a million dollars to put artificial turf on three Soccer fields at Herndon Park and quick to approve over another hundred thousand dollars for an outdoor ice skate rink, quick to spend 35 million dollars to build a museum, the Mobile Police Department was just honored for being the 4th Worst Paid Police force in the America.
Isn't it nice for the City of Mobile to neglect essential City Services like the Police while the Shity Council squanders money on soccer fields, museums, and ice skating? No, it is not nice, it is downright Ugly! It does explain a lot though why the City is in a state of decay. Poor ass leadership.
Just another trash polluted Dog River tributary.
The Pope's visit to America has blanketed the news recently. This holy fiasco makes me laugh.
In the photo at the link below you can see the Pope obviously worships images of the cross. There is a cross in front of him, he holds a cross, and there are crosses on his clothing.
What did the 2nd of the Ten Commandments say? Thou shalt not make graven images or bow down and serve them. Here we have the Pope serving for the Cross.
So what do the masses of brainwashed Christian people do? They kneel down in church in front of the graven cross images or Christ images and worship them. Isn't it moronic for the big Catholic leader of the world to be sinning by worshiping graven cross images? Then again, wasn't it the Catholic Church that mandated the Sabbath day of worship (Saturday) be changed to Sunday thereby breaking another Bible Commandment?
All this Pope hypocracy reminds me of Kim Davis. Kim is the Jesus lover refusing to issue marriage licenses to gay and lesbian couples because it is against her bible based religious principals.
Based on Kim’s own religious biblical principals her current marriage license should have never been issued.
Yeah, supreme marriage judge Kim Davis has been married four times and divorced three times so in the eyes of the Bible Kim now lives in an adulterous marriage. Mark 10:12
Worse yet, Kim Davis's current husband is one of her former husbands. That means her current marriage is an "Abomination before the Lord." Deuteronomy 24:4
Gluttony is one of Catholicism's Seven Deadly Sins. Obese Kim Davis looks like she has an overeating problem, too.
Kim says on the news that she is not a hypocrite and is forgiven for her sins. HaHa! I pray Kim's God judges Kim as she judges others and sends that hypocritical gluttonous marriage judge who is still living in biblical sin according to her bible to hell.
I know, it is ugly to say that. But, I have never met a Christian Bible Thumping Jesus Freak including every preacher I have met who could even name the Bible’s basic Ten Commandments. For Christians like Kim who use government to force their religious beliefs on people is an UGLY thing to do. Who are they to say their religion is the real one? After all, there are about 4299 other different religions in the world...
With the big Coastal Cleanup event held about a week ago, how does Upper Dog River look now? Don't ask. All it takes is one rain to trash an area just cleaned.
A pile of trash along your dock or waterfront shoreline is not the thing you want to see after spending big bucks for waterfront property and paying higher taxes for the privilege of living along the water.
Despite a new litter trap, it looked like a litter bomb went off in upper Dog River. Of course, I just heard a City official on news saying the litter trap worked well because he didn’t see much trash downstream of the litter trap. Obviously the City official did not go downstream of the litter trap. Neither did the news reporter. That is why I do not trust local news anymore.
I saw ZERO litter removal boats in action today despite the sicking amount of trash pollution after Sunday nights rain. The UGLY trashy scenery along Dog River just never changes because no one is employed to remove the community's trash after heavy rains with the exception of the easy to access trash at the litter trap and volunteer effort.
The photos speak for themselves. Dog River still has a serious MS4 pollution problem. Where is ADEM?
Yesterday I kayaked 7 miles in the Dog River, Moore Creek and McCullough Bayou areas. Shoreline trash was still visible almost the entire time along this paddle despite last weekend’s Coastal Cleanup.
But, I did see an overall reduction of the easy to access trash especially on the west side of Moore Creek north of Lee's Lane and in the entire McCullough Bayou.
Kudos to the Dog River watershed Coastal Cleanup team. It is not often that I see any visual reduction of storm water trash after a Coastal Cleanup Event.
Every bit of trash removed means it will not be there for the next rain to move further downstream. It is too bad that the event is only 4 hours. An all weekend clean up event could remove four times as much trash producing even better results.
America turns into a land
