How to Dispose of Old Chemicals

If you need to clean out a storage room or carport that has many old containers of weed killer, bug spray and fertilizer. Here is the safest way to dispose of them.

Pete Dasher, Unit Coordinator with the Georgia Environmental Protection Division, says that you can soak your chemicals into kitty litter to make them acceptable to municipal solid waste facilities.

One of the easiest ways to accomplish this is to buy the kitty litter product that comes packaged in a gallon jug, pour in the liquid pesticides, then recap the jug and place it in your household garbage.

If you have cans of paint, pour kitty litter in the containers and replace the lid. Household quantities of granular lawn chemicals can be placed in a heavy duty plastic bag and put out for the garbage truck.

In this video from nmsuaces we get a lesson in how to dispose of leftover lawn chemicals. Many gardeners want to know what to do with leftover materials and how to get rid of it safely. You should not store it. Once mixed up, use it all. Make your mix so you don't have to have a surplus that day.

The Nanny State Updates…

Congressman Ron Paul (R-TX) has frequently pointed out that, until 1913, the U.S. survived and prospered without a federal income tax or the IRS.

International tax attorney Andrew Mitchel wrote that, last year, "the quarterly average number of expatriates continues to increase." He defines an expatriate as an individual who renounced United States citizenship or terminated long-term U.S. residency.

National Taxpayer Advocate Nina E. Olson seconds that trend and says renunciations (U.S. citizens dropping their citizenship outright) have increased sharply over the past three years. In 2008, just 146 renunciations occurred; in 2010, it jumped to 1,534. And, 1,024 Americans cancelled their citizenship in the first half of 2011 alone!

According to court documents, 16-year-old Caitlin and 14-year-old Abigail Mills of Hazelwood, Mo., are girl scouts who have sold cookies in their driveway for the last six years. This year, when the girls tried to begin their sales, city officials told their mother, Carolyn Mills, that the girls must shut down their stand as it violates city ordinances…the family is suing the city - hope they win!

The Parting Thought – Speaking out against Corporate Censorship

Excerpted from one our favorite free ebook sites…

Does anyone reading this remember when removed copies of “1984″ from their Kindle library and by extension from the “personal” Kindle library of anyone who had bought that particular copy of the classic novel by George Orwell? It was in July of 2009 and a New York Times blogger was quick to jump on the irony of the situation with a blog post entitled “Some eBooks are more equal than others“. Amazon explained, at the time, that the book was in violation of their terms of use and had been uploaded by a company who did not have the rights to upload the work at all.

The irony of this situation is that the book in question is a frightening tale of control by the “Big Brother” in which our very thoughts are controlled and censored if we dare to have them.

To say that Amazon’s actions were “Orwellian in nature” is quite the cliché but it fits. After a huge outcry, Amazon promised to never interfere with so-called private libraries in such a way again. At least, almost 2 decades after Orwell’s fictional story could have been true, the court of public opinion still carries much weight with the would-be “Big Brother” types.

Fast forward almost 3 years, and big corporations are at it again. This time, a completely non-related company is again telling us what to read and write and buy. has changed their policy and terms to prohibit the sale of erotica using the facilities provided by them. In other words, if you write erotica, you cannot accept payment through anymore. And if you read erotica and have been in the habit of buying from websites who employ a checkout system, you will have to start getting your fiction elsewhere.

This is the world we now live in – one in which anybody can tell us what is moral what we ought to be doing.
