You know it's a dark day for America when foreign leaders have to....

lecture US officials about the importance of prioritizing public health over corporate profits.

"Thailand wants to ban these three pesticides. The US government says no "

Yet that is what is happening now, as the Trump administration pressures Thailand not to ban three pesticides that scientific research has shown to be particularly dangerous to children and other vulnerable populations.

One example of the governmental fealty was laid out in an internal Monsanto consultant’s report made public through litigation against the company. The report quotes a White House policy adviser as saying: “We have Monsanto’s back on pesticides regulation. We are prepared to go toe-to-toe on any disputes they may have.”

USA! USA! USA!

The White house has Monsanto's back. Well that's ugly.

2. Hey, here's an idea - how bout Monsanto come up with a competitive product or process

that addresses the pest issue without harming children?

Nah, that would take work.

(I am tired of corps profiting off the corpses created by "externalities" )

6. I FIRMLY believe there should be an article for Impeachment

with any directive trump has given like this that "the President has endangered the lives and well being of it's citizens"

Add to it, my pet peeve, he reversed a President Obama regulation that stopped coal companies from dumping sludge into our waters that contained proven cancer causing materials. (Link in my signature line)

This is an abomination that every citizen would care about. Why our candidates don't mention specific atrocities he has committed is beyond me.
