DO you think the US is incapable of building anything that china builds? we used to be the China in the world years ago. Now we don’t build shit and we rely on other countries to live, becasue they build it cheaper and we are to cheap to support ourselves. That make perfect sense doesn’t it? The USA used to be the power house and the innovative country of the world full of Americans that were proud of what they did and new what they and the country stood for! Now its full of a bunch of whiney, lazy fucksticks that want the government to do everything for you!

Again with the regulations. We donít need the government to ban more stuff. We need people to start paying attention for themselves and not rely on the government to make sure their lives turn out OK.

Im talking about us the people banning the Bullshit not the Government! Banning, boycotting, not buying what ever you want to call it!

And I agree people need to pay attention to what they eat/drink. most people have no clue what they are eating and where things come from. I would not be educated it the slightest if it was not for some good friends like Bones and Wakebabe that are very hip to that stuff. I have learned alotin the past year and changed my fmailies diet 180 degrees. we watch what we buy and from where and we will ahve a full garden next year for all our fruits and veggies. :)

I see you are big on not having the governemt ban things but I think what they allow in some foods should be illigal. Thats my personal feeling. I get what you are saying about us paying attention and you are absolutely right but the sad part is we as a citizen's should be able to trust they have our safety and well being in their best interest but they dont give a shit about the people. and I think alot of people assume the government is watching out for our health and well being but they are not!

I truley think its their way of population control. just like I think alot of our colds and illnesses are fabricated from the drug companies. hey heres a cold/illness and heres the vacine for it... But thats a whole nother topic...lol

Bruce I am not looking to regulate or have it regulated. I want these companies that could give a rats ass about our health/well being(raping us on price because they are so huge like a porn star) put out of business. Simple no?

We dont got to strip clubs because of the price of drinks or their food, but what if everywhere started to charge strip club prices for booze? You would pop in a porn and buy/make your own beer........wait.......you already do that don't you?

Actually no. It is all one in the same. If we eat healthy, buy righteously, and work smart most of us would be as healthy as an ox( I'm using the metaphor )

People are lazy. Fast food is a lazy persons heaven. Lazy people buy shit they don't need. Lazy people get sick easiest. It all goes hand in hand. Lazy people believe there is a pill for it.

If you could make a jazzy commerical for the real health foods (not the fake ones like sugary granola bars and lifewaters) like veggies and fruit then maybe someone might think they were worth looking into..
I still dont think boycotting solves anything and I think education doesnt usually solve anything. People are too self absorbed in this world to care about the environment, others, themselves, or even the economy anymore. They want instant gratification... all of the things they think they deserve with zero work.
This country is fucked and it has more to do with our attitudes about what we really deserve/need and less to do with what stores you frequent.

YES!!!
But the stores do matter. Example.....if there was a filet mignon in your fridge....would Mike grill it up medium rare, sprinkle blue cheese on it, and eat it?
We have to put corporations out of business. Which requires boycotting!

Don't forget about boycotting the bank.


I'm down with living off the land. I already have a place for chicken's and goats. Might aswell add a pig or two into the mix.

Do we all need to live together in our own community? Sure would make things alot easier.

I agree but it would only be a struggle for a short time period because the lower and middle class would start working for the American made companies that at this time dont exist. its all balanced on itself. the middle and lower class have nothing/no one to work for because we dont make shit anymore. They all work for the wal-mart/ mcdonalds type companies down with that shit and up with American made companies better paying jobs, turns into better US economy, which turns into a country that can support itsself rather than this whole we are in.

There is no over night fix and with the fix it will not be easy for anyone and it will be devistating for others but it is something that needs to happen or we will really be screwed! People will loose their jobs but with the fall of one corperation will birth a new corperation just like a forest fire, its devistating for a while but it grows back bigger and stronger than before.

While I agree with alot you have said you are wrong about being concerned what the government allows food companies to put into food. You should be worried about what is "mandated" to be put into food by the govenment.

for me it's more about doing things for ourselves again, like cooking, than about health.
