Columnist: I’m Outraged!

Judy Ferro, a communications director for the Canyon County Democrats and a columnist for the Idaho Press-Tribune, explains why she's outraged:

  • I’m outraged that man-made environmental disasters are multiplying, that radioactive fish are being found off our Pacific shores, that huge dead spots exist in the Gulf off Florida, that fracking-caused earthquakes are occurring in Ohio—and possibly Texas,  Oklahoma and Arkansas.
  • I’m outraged that eight states have made it illegal to video animal abuse in big ag facilities.
  • And I’m outraged that my Congressmen are more interested in raising money for their next elections than in listening to Idaho voters. I’m outraged that the richest 600+ people in the country put nearly $1 billion into buying 2012 elections.
  • Full column here.

Question: What outrages you?
