Drug companies are probably THE most immoral companies in the world today..........they have multi-billion dollar slush funds to hush up the dire results of using their often noxious products. In the case of new drugs, it's a well-known fact that as long as they can hush up the body-count, they'll j...

I'm somewhat at a loss to understand the obsession with waste.......the need to take everything to the "nth" degree.........from where I'm sitting, we have a planet to save, and to do so, we have to do a myriad of things - fly less, travel less, use less packaging, compost, insulate until it comes o...
