The "bug-free" part of the inaugural was brought to you by considerations from the month of January and the location of DC relative to the equator.

Pretty sure there was a giant cockroach touching a bible on the podium

It's OK it mostly messes with Children's brains so after they eat the tainted food they will reliably vote republican.

I have more respect for cockroaches than I do for Donald Trump.

/Same goes for dung beetles, ticks, botflies, slime molds, pubic lice, and so on.

Dow continuing its long history of knowingly poisoning people.  I'd bet they have studies showing damaging health effects years ahead of the government.

Dow doesn't care about there workers or people in the communities.  Customers are annoying to them as well and they barely put up with them for the money.  Heartless company.
