Reflections of an Old Dog by Nonny

 

Editor's Note: Reflections of an Old Dog by Nonny was a regular column in the The Radical when it was being printed in hard copy from 1998 to 2002. I hadn't heard from Nonny for quite a number of years until just recently when he sent me the following column. I guess the condition of the world has got to him again and he had to share his reflections during these challenging times. I hope you'll enjoy his article. He appears to be just as sharp as ever.

Reflections of an Old Dog

Hi, my friend;

I bet you were thinking that I kicked the bucket, but I assure you I am still kicking in this world. Much grayer, mind you but still here, and full of worry at what is happening all around us!That’s really why I’m writing you. Are any of the old types that used to print my stories still around? Because if they are, I want to tell them what I think is happening, and what we need to watch out for.

So I see several things that are putting us and all our relatives in danger. Let me just list the main ones I can think of.Looking up at the sky, I see all these so called chem trails. I’ve been watching the skies all my life, and these things weren’t around when I was young. Mind they’ve been around for some 15, 20 years now. I didn’t pay them any attention first, thinking they were just contrails. But then I began to notice how they spread out and never disappeared, and turned into clouds that stayed put. And I figured that’s not normal, and it ain’t right.

And when I looked into it a bit, I saw it really wasn’t right.

What do people think will happen if you pump chemicals in the air 24/7/365 for ever! One sure thing is they won’t stay up in the skies hanging by sky hooks! They’ll fall to the ground. And some of those nano sized chemicals apparently ( I asked a chemist abut this) dry out vegetation. And they change the Ph of the soils. And waters. Like for example that nano sized aluminum is alkaline. Did you notice the lakes taste sort of salty nowadays? That’s alkaline.

Now if they dry out vegetation like trees, you’d suppose these trees would be more likely to burn faster. So how about all those catastrophic forest fires in many places around the world? Did the trees dry out because of the aluminum sprayed on them? And of course who knows what all is in them chem trails, besides. Is the air the new ocean, where we used to dump garbage till people noticed that we have a problem with dead zones, and plastic. So are they now sending garbage like fly ash up in the air? Makes you wonder, doesn’t it!

But that’s not all that’s come down on us since I last wrote you. This wireless everywhere is making me dizzy. I can’t visit with my friends in town anymore without feeling sort of ill. Being an outdoor guy I feel it when things aren’t right. And they aren’t. I think we’re really killing much of the life around us, but we blame all sorts of other things, like climate change, and now this covid 19. And folks are trying to say CO2 is to blame. Well if we eliminate that, we’re signing our death warrant, because green plants from grasses to trees need it to live, and they in return make oxygen that keeps us alive. I’m noticing that some trees are greener and happy because they have more nutrition. Of course in some areas we have clearcut so much the ground dries out and you get pine where before you had fir, or even cedar.

So frankly I am most worried about this continuous increase in the wireless, smart meters on every house these days, cell towers on schools and hospitals, and now proposing 5G to be on every second telephone pole, if not every one! Our brain and out heart run on our own weak sort of electricity that comes from the earth, so how is this much stronger stuff not going to overwhelm our system? It will. And it already is!

What is especially immoral -- and I don’t use that word often -- is that this is sold as a convenience, but in reality it’s all for the billions in profits for the industry. And the CEO’s and big shareholders don’t care how much suffering they cause. I often wonder what they’ll do when they’ve killed life on this planet. Will they fly to another one? If they have some such place in mind, I wish they’d go there right now, and leave the rest of us in peace here. It’s such a beautiful place if you don’t live in a big city hi-rise condo and can actually see it!
