My name is Mary. Friends and family call me Becky. I'm disabled, in a wheelchair, and a real pain in the rear end at times. I'm passionate about the things I believe in. I love animals and don't wan to see them abused. I hate this war and want to see it and the war in Afghanistan come to an end. It is costing too much financially, but especially human lives. It is an illegal war, and an immoral war. It has to end. I'm also passionate about safe food for both human consumption and animal consumption. The idea of eating any food that is farmed in China, makes me sick to my stomach. The idea of feeding it to unsuspecting animals makes me very angry! Maybe the Chinese don't value the lives of people and their pets, but I do, and I believe everyone should! Lead in the paint used for toys: That really makes my blood boil. I know, with the population problems China has that they don't value the lives of their children as we do. But when it comes to making toys for our children, we have to hold them to a higher standard than what they apply to their own population. Incidentally, those jobs should be here, not there! That's what I'm all about There is probably more, that i haven't thought of, but that will do for now. Thanks for reading.
