My bio should to start here:
“Early Sunday morning, June 4, 2017, I was sicker than I had ever been before. Too sick to even bend over, as I vomited all over the toilet, myself, and the bathroom floor — and I didn’t even care.”
This was the aftermath of being engulfed in a cloud of Roundup from a giant agricultural sprayer while I was mowing my lawn the previous afternoon.
The incident motivated me to write “You Know You Live near a Factory Farm When Your Kids Go Fishing with a Pool Skimmer” — a picture book with large print and cautionary captions. “Family Farm Fun” is the second book in the Factory Farm series.
At this same time I grew increasingly aware of the treatment that the rural community in the town was receiving, and began my blog on elitist policy making: Rural Tompkins County — The Road to Hell is Paved with Good Credentials.
As for right now, what should I do next?
I think I’ll go to my favorite pub. Maybe there’s someone there who hasn’t heard my story.
My brother says, “Good luck with that!”
"Ag up" your water cooler chat with this informative flash card set. Did you know that "100 Year Storms" occur several times each year? Or that a "Family Farm" is a multi-national corporation where the majority of stock is owned by one family? Just follow the instructions, and in a matter of days you'll be understanding what the "rich people" mean when they say: "I'll get the hog farm expansion approval before the next 100year storm." and "If the governor can't push back those regulations for our family farms, he won't be in office come next election." Even if you're a party of the third part, liven up your party with authentic Ag Slang Flash Cards
