I recycle most of the plastic bottles and containers, but I agree that it is excessive. Great meal program, though!

Facebook post, Oct. 20 "Should medical marijuana be legalized in Utah?"
As one who was told to leave Utah (shortly after my 21st birthday) I am in complete agreement that pot must be legalized in Utah. There were three bishops—with pretty daughters—who got together back around 1968 and they demanded my moving out of the state. I guess they did not appreciate their daughters coming home from dates smelling like weed. I proclaim that I am INNOCENT! Besides, it got out that I am a Hillary supporter. I'm still not welcomed by those guys. Surely they must be dead by now?

What a stupid fucking question. Might generate money for one of the worst education systems. But maybe not I am pretty sure the Mormon money machine would get their percentage.

"Make Salt Lake City Great Again"
Some noteworthy things about my father, John Stromness [pictured above]... He was in the Air force for 30 years. First as a mechanic during Vietnam, and later as a flight engineer in the reserves (activated during Desert Storm). He used the G.I. bill to go to pharmacy school. I look up to him. He is an honorable person. He's seen the world, literally almost every corner, and he knows the good and bad that exists. He knows we are better than Trump would have us believe and he knows the rhetoric that Trump spews is false. I couldn't be more proud of my shy father going around town and willing to be heckled by Trump supporters.

And then someone's bound to say the Native Americans should go back to where they came from. So nice to see this starting to get attention.
