This love struck smiley face stress ball laying over the sewer reminded me of the similar smiley face department store that I hate.
As I continue to watch the smiley store corporation stock plummet and see the truth about their goods revealed, this is how I view that corporation. The last thing I heard about them revealed so much about the level of corruption in our country. It involved huge farm subsidies going to corn, soy, and cottonseed mega farms. The overwhelming majority of food stuffs in their stores are made from these products.
We pay for the subsidies of these crops. The crops are grown, then processed in ways that are poisonous to us. Then, we buy the products at the smiley store. In essence, we pay for them twice, but they seem like a bargain. For some, it is all that they can afford.
I really wish I listened to the “whackos” telling us this 20, 30 years ago.
