I thought since some of these topics were brought up recently, some might like the video. It is an interesting point of view.

Fucking Brilliant.
I agree 100%, but for me it comes down to the fact all these problems stem from ignorance. Ignorance is everywhere. America the free? America the land of opportunity? Only if you are in the top echelons of society.
Only if you are not the majority.
I have issues with the world as a whole, despite my position on the McDonalds thread, I am anti consumerist, anti capitalist, however that being said, that is the reality in that kind of society, and regulating even more of it won't do a damn thing.
Great video, stealing it to put on my facebook wall. Thanks.
It would be nice if we could all live in a Utopian egalitarian society, where everyone has what they need and no one goes without the basics of life, unfortunately that would never be possible. We as humans have essentially been acting the same since the beginning of our times. The differences being that we have more resources at our disposals, and there are more of us. We are by nature an exploitative species. We are by nature always trying to get ahead, that is evolution. It's just too bad that we taking the whole planet with us as we amuse ourselves to death.

So true Tara - makes me think of a line from JCS: There will be poor always, pathetically struggling. Look at the good things you've got."

this video makes some great points, IMO.

marijuana should be decriminalized. if it's legalized, it'll just become another type of cigarette, and will lose all its medicinal qualities for that all-mighty dollar.

if people weren't such daily McD's-scarfing lazy bastards maybe they could lose weight. ugh, my family pisses me off because the majority of them are said lazy bastards.

people are unemployed because there are no jobs. it ain't easy to get a job and it's even harder to break into the employed world now unless you were employed before the "recession" and were one of the lucky ones who got to keep their job or knew some powerful people. in my area, you better know someone higher up in a company or find a shitty company that doesn't care who they hire, be it respectable husbands or convicted dope-heads.

i watched this last night, but hubby wanted the computer and i was sleepy. this is the stuff that stood out to me most, though. thus i remembered it and made my comments xD
