Dec 8th 2006 10:13PM I enjoyed Melissa's comment on Walmart selling "Everything." Ha!
To be truthful, we really don't need another reason to shop at Walmart. Seriously, urban sprawl, decay of local businesses, descrimination against women and minorities.. the list goes on. I guess 59 cents less for a bag of crap really does matter more than human lives.
And sure.. its not affecting us directly, so who cares?
Yeah. You know.. if that was the case with like slavery and stuff.. like we would still have slaves.
You'll have to excuse me, but while i understand that America is built on the backs of women and minorities, and the poor.. I feel that it is anti-patriotic to cater to such places. The Statue of Liberty might as well read "give us your tired, your poor, huddled masses... and we will give them a job at Walmart!"
Nov 26th 2006 6:51PM We should never say that just because it is different from what we consider "normal," it is barbaric! Have you ever read "The Jungle?" It has a lot of interesting information about our food packing industry back in the 20's.
You might say "well that's back then.." but think of it this way.. Most of our food comes from other countries, places that don't have an FDA. Our chocolate, for example, mostly comes from the Ivory Coast from Africa. The Cocoa beans in transit from their country to ours have mice and rats crawling around in them, so there is a great deal of rodent feces in the beans. Obviously, you can't tell the difference between a small black bean and mouse poo, so the US FDA allows a larger percentage of rodent feces in chocolate than in other items.
If you've ever seen how our animals here are butchered for food, you would never call the rituals of animal slaughter in other countries "Barbaric." At least they have some kind of ritual attached. We just kill animals by the thousand, whether they're sick or healthy.
One last image to put into your mind.. think about the cow's milk you or your children drink. Milk contains what is called "somatic" cells in it, which is what pus is made from. Cows' udders become infected from all of the milking, causing their bodies to produce a large amount of pus, which comes out along with the milk. If you're interested, you can look up just how many somatic cells there are in each ounce of your milk by doing a search on the internet. You will be shocked.
So Americans drink pus in their cow's milk, eat feces in their chocolate.... Who is barbaric now?
Aug 26th 2006 9:32PM I just want to say that i think AOL shouldnt be promoting this woman's account of the so-called "cleanse." First off, she OBVIOUSLY has a body-image disorder, and was on the "cleanse" for 18 days when it is all said and done.
Also, i want to say that eating ANY amount of maple syrup would ruin the "cleansing" effects of the drink because of its high sugar content. Finally, if you are doing any kind of cleanse, you should check with a healthcare professional and NOT do it any longer than 48 hours at the most.
Teach yourself to eat better, and you wouldn't have to "CLEANSE."
