150 years ago the west half off the United States of America was still occupied by Native American Indians and Buffalo roamed the west in herds of tens of millions and all the rest of the wild life and plant life were pristine.
Pigeons and other birds by the billions filled the skies when migrating and moving about.
Flocks hundreds of miles wide and long filled the skies blocking out the sun.
Fishes and plant life were abundant.
Virgin and pristine and untouched.
All of life.
Much of the earth the same.
Whale blubber and animal fat candles were used for light after dark.
Fire had been contained for thousands of years and we were good at it.
Mostly cooking and warming.
By the fire..
Ships had been built.
Lets say west of the Mississippi River.
About half of the United States.
The forests and grasses and deserts were still virgin and untouched since the beginning of time.
The rivers and the lakes the same.
As far as the eye could see and beyond..
Much of the planet earth the same.
Fifty years later when my grandpa was born there were still no automobiles or electricity.
The buffalo and the birds were gone..
Murdered by white man..
The Indians were slaughtered and those that remained were put on reservations and their children taken away to boarding schools and their hair cut and not allowed to speak their native language and put in white man clothes and beds.
Taken away from their families and mothers and fathers and loved ones and beaten.
Twenty years after that when my father and mother were both born right here where I'm standing at right now as we speak.
This is where I live.
Actually within a few miles..
Lets back up on this a little bit..
The earth had no cars or electricity or telephones..
People walked and hunted with their bare hands and sticks and stones..
They lived wonderfully and abundantly and in perfect health on a perfect land.
Wolves killed buffalo to eat.
Buffalo ate grass.
Man lived in villages and tribes and nations..
The world over..
Babies and women and children in perfect health..
Then the European Monsters came..
Murdering controlling monsters..
Killing and insanity had begun..
Ravaging the earth and every living creature and thing..
The earth itself..
The air and the water and the earth and ground and even the sounds..
Polluted and destroyed by white man..
In the name of God..
