I'm reading 'In Control,' a book by Jane Monckton Smith, a former police officer, about dangerous relationships and how they end in murder.

Nothing shows as clearly why having an empowered workforce, one that isn't afraid to point out illegal activity, protects their employer. https://tinyurl.com/bp7e9pv7 #dirtymoney #dirtymoneywagonwheel #wellsfargo #workplacebullying #bullyingawareness… Continue reading Dirty Money Wagon Wheel
A pregnant woman in the united states could buy an assault weapon and kill dozens with it but could lose the right to end the life of a fetus dependant on her body.
