In defense of pesticides

I found this to be kind of funny. Some agribusiness trade group has asked Michelle Obama to think of using pesticides when planning her organic garden. I can understand this trade group sending Michelle a letter privately but they also made this letter public. Since Michelle's garden will inspire a lot of people to get into gardening this year, it takes a lot of gall to try and promote your pesticide industry when a little dishwater soap and water works just as well. If lobbyists are this petty I can only wonder what Michelle's husband has to deal with on the real issues. Oh well, here's the link:

Rush is an entertainer, not an elected official or news reporter. I'm not surprised at anything he says. No, Sean is against the current massive spending and subsequent both obvious and not so obvious taxation to support that spending. He acknowledges that Bush and his administration left the current administartion with a big mess. And, has left people's ears sore from his opinion on that part. So, I think is being fair in his opinions.
Anne, well, I don't agree with alot she has to say. Know nothing of this Laura.

Apparently you know about the frogs and salamanders that were deeply affected during reproduction by Roundup use in Austin area. First time I heard you say squat about it. Congratualations. I hope my assumptions are correct.
