Before he became President Trump’s nominee to oversee the safety of pesticides sprayed on our food, Michael Dourson sought to weaken pesticide safety standards for Monsanto and Dow.

We desperately need more chemicals, right? And tax plans that hurt the middle class, and LESS healthcare... Every day is another day in hell

I have a sister who studied up on Monsanto, pesticides,
& I think genetic alterations in crops ... She gets quite
furious about the whole thing.

In the long run, can we live on foods that are now unnatural?

Can't comment more as I don't know enough about it.

I can't live off "natural" foods... can't imagine what "unnatural" is doing to me.

Me and the kiddo had ONE slice of choc chip brioche yesterday and we were in the bathroom all morning. Damn eggs. But...BRIOCHE!

Someone should find this asshole's grandkids and hose them down with particulates, yanno, since they are so good for kids. I mean, you'd be doing them a favor, right??

Dear Universe, PLEASE give Trump a fucking Viagra-induced heart attack.
Thanks! SOO MUCH.


BTW, on the subject of particulates... We live a couple miles from a busy highway...some nights when the wind is just right, all the sulfur gasses and shit drifts our way and settles because it is heavier than cool night air, and I CANNOT go outside without having an allergic reaction to it.

So, once again... SCREW YOU, REPUBLICANS.

I see wishy's doctor hasn't gotten her on the right prescription while I was gone.

You feel better now wishy? Hope that put you over the hump and you got some sleep last night.

Even if it meant wishing a swift death on somebody with a side of sexism and ageism to boot.

DID YOU EVEN LOOK AT THE ARTICLE GENIUS??

He hired a guy who has gone on record saying particulates are GOOD for kids. That our air IS TOO CLEAN...Really??

I can't breathe as it is, so yeah, I wish him and his to have the slow death they wish on me. Fair's fair. Plus, yanno...he cuts off birth control, I think death by Viagra would be pretty appropriate.

You know, this sounds sorta rational in this case.

Trump's only qualifications for president are his age & nationality.
He doesn't know anything about his job & figures he's doing fine ...
Why wouldn't that work for a federal judge?

As far as I know, there are actually qualifications you need to be a judge. Can anybody break down what happened here without the biased spin?

Age and being a natural born citizen are the only two requirements to be president.

Trump wants judges who are as far "right" as you can go, but since judges tend to be educated people who realize fairness is more appropriate than partisan brainwashing, there aren't a lot of people who identify as far right that are in the judicial system... so Trump is scraping the bottom of the barrel to fill the slots.

Fascism is the absence of reason, and those are two qualities Trump has in abundance.

Trumps NEW shit on America

https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/uraniumco-bears-ears-carve_us_5a2
ddd59e4b073789f6ae643?ncid=edlinkushpmg00000313


Earlier this month Donald Trump hailed his edict slashing Utah’s Bears Ears National Monument by some 85 percent as a great move for American citizens. But another interest was likely far more delighted: a mining company that lobbied for the change in a bid for access to uranium on the public land.

Zinke has insisted the president’s push to reduce national monuments has nothing to do with mining interests. “This is not about energy,” Zinke told reporters last week. “There is no mine within Bears Ears.”

But the president’s redrawn boundaries of Bears Ears now puts the uranium deposits outside the protected area, Utah’s Republican Gov. Gary Herbert pointed out in an interview with the Post.








I used to live in a uranium mine town. After the market cooled and new deposits of ore were found elsewhere that had a higher uranium content, all the companies abandoned the area. Now the town is left with not only rampant unemployment and economic recession, but also a toxic wasteland that people can't even walk on. The tailing ponds that dot the landscape are literally bright green and they keep finding dead wildlife in their vicinity. The cancer rate is over the moon and almost everyone has been super exposed to radon gas. It will take at least another millennium before the poison is gone and the land can be used again. The clean up and ruined lands will end up having a much more negative economic impact on the town than any positive impact seen during the active mining days. It's a travesty, and now Trump wants to repeat it.

It occurred to me the other day that he is draining the swamp. Unfortunately, it's the swamp he brought with him so we're not exactly getting anywhere.
Can citizens sue a news channel? 'Cuz the sh*t Fux puts out should get them taken off the air. At least make them list as a foreign agent.

Well, Disney IS buying much of Fox so pretty soon all the anchors could be replaced with mindless talking mice... and no one will notice








EXCEPT...

According to CNBC, Disney would only purchase a portion of Fox, with the deal likely to exclude the Fox broadcast network, Fox’s sports assets, Fox News and Fox Business. The deal also would not include Fox’s local broadcasting affiliates, CNBC reported.

Instead, Disney would gain control of the Fox movie studio, TV production and networks such as FX and National Geographic.

Here's a list of all Disney owned companies

http://disney.wikia.com/wiki/List_of_assets_owned_by_Disney


So...close. Pretty soon all entertainment will be Blue Su...I mean...Disney. All bow to your benevolent overlords... for $8 an hour and a handful of candy



Supposedly the new acquisition is so they have more content for their streaming service... which I don't see why anyone who doesn't have small kids would want...I would probably do a 30 day trial and cancel it.
