Once again, my awesome friends have coughed up a pile of awesome links worthy of sharing – huzzah!
Foodies, Get Thee to Occupy Wall Street
I’ve been aware of most of these issues for some time and have even traded blows with acquaintances who insist that I must be wrong (over things easily verifiable by a super-quick Google search). I personally think that part of the so-called obesity crisis can and should be laid at the feet of tinkered-with foods; a lot of what is going into mouths isn’t properly food. And of course, people eat a lot more of it ’cause they’re not allowed to smoke or drink or engage in any other vices, but oh, they engage in this one and then they’re demonized for that too. *snorts* People, I think, need vice – we need some escape from the rigors of daily life, and if we shame the hell out of everyone for everything, is it any wonder that people are both unhealthy and fat? Fat, by the by, does not equal unhealthy, and it’s a terrible shame that the claims of such are screamed so loudly over everything else that people believe that it is for true.
Anyways, I went off track there. The main point is that there’s a lot of work that needs to be done to ensure that everyone is fed, and preferably REAL food.
Occupy Wall Street: Faces Of The Protesters
Nice pictures, nice words. I think it’s always nice to see why other people are involved in something.
Thirteen Observations made by Lemony Snicket…
I have a non-opinion about Lemony Snicket, but I still find the list charming.
And finally, back to the supposed core of the issue:
Get Money Out
Like it says on the tin, it’s a campaign dedicated to getting money out of politics. I have a non-opinion of Dylan Ratigan as his rise to prominence came after I quit watching TV in America (2001), but I do agree that permitting corporations to be people is completely, balls out ridiculous. So sign it, pass it around, and help reverse the selling out of America!
