I must have missed the message from God concerning mid-term elections, AP. I don't
think he/she had a lot to do with them.
It is not that Romney is a high achiever, it is how he achieved. Where are his tax returns? I
read where part of Ryan's vetting process was looking at several years of his tax returns. If
that was important to Romney, then surely he can understand why we want to see his.
Did not Mr. Cathy also state that if a male applied for a job and was wearing an earring he
would not be hired? Does he just not like males wearing earrings and if so, could he not just
ask that males refrain from wearing them? I believe he was referring to males wearing them as
a sign that they were gay.
If Romney doesn't know or care what is going on within his own family, why am I suppose
to think he will care about mine? Ralph Lauren had the uniforms made in China, not Obama.
Malathion is an insecticide that came into use in tobacco production in the 1960's. The
most used chemicals for insect control between 1964 and 1966 were Toxaphene , which
had a very strong odor, and DDT.
Maleic hydrazide was introdued in the 1950's as a sucker control replacing mineral oil.
Someday it may be important to know exactly which chemicals you were exposed to.
I appreciate the article, too. It is nice to know what local people have been doing since
they left Moore County.
I know the hours involved, Toda. I was not talking about any one certain child. They can do
physical, hot, dirty work. They choose not to. My son has been working since he was in
high school with time out for several tours in the U.S. Navy. I know that if he needed to put
food on the table for his family he would prime tobacco or whatever and thank the person
that hired him. If the young people saw the adults in their life breaking a sweat once in a
while they might, too, be willing to try.
Toda, kids today could do that type of work but won't. That is the main problem.
I helped empty the sled, hand, and then as you mentioned, helped hang the sticks in the
barn. I've also topped, suckered, and weeded. It was hot, dirty work but, at the end of the
day you knew why you were so tired. Many children helped buy their school clothes or
paid for the trip to the county fair with money earned and saved.
Some folks the pack includes: your parents, your teachers, the bankers that fund your start-up
or expansion, the people that provide the materials you use, the people you employ, the
customers that buy your product, the people that build and operate the planes, trains, trucks,
airports, rails, and roads that move your product. Hard to do it all by yourself.
