Off to Buy a Box or Two


In an election year filled with secret campaign money, the Scotts Miracle-Gro Company has made the unlikely choice to go public with a big political donation.
The Ohio-based company, familiar as the producer of a ubiquitous plant fertilizer, is now a political player, donating $200,000 in June to the Restore Our Future super PAC supporting Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney. -- - The Washington Post

For his birthday in May I bought my hubby monthly Scotts Lawn service. He said it is the best bday present ever! In one month our lawn in sub-tropical florida improved and it's now like a green carpet! After this news I agree, this is the best birthday present I have ever bought for him! Plus they also make Osmocote which is the best pellet fertilizer for flowers and vegetables!

Why not support Romney? Scotts likes big government and corporatism just as much as the next corporation.
