Resist toxic chemicals and corporate greed…

Note:  I wrote this blog post before all the drama with the Comey firing!  Goodness!  The plot thickens!  Since my MOCs are already on the right side of history on that particular topic, here’s something else to do to resist. I’m getting tired of corporate greed. Although I’m not universally frightened of chemicals in general, pesticides … More Resist toxic chemicals and corporate greed…

Help save the environment by clogging up the wheels of government!

Tomorrow is the day for the March for Science! But I can’t go because of other commitments.  Which is unfortunate. So, I’m doing my part for the environment today anyway.
