Boo-McHaa-McHoo, Kids NOT being McBranded

McDonalds is upset. Their Corporate "News" McPartners are upset. San Francisco voters ratified a law requiring that toys only be placed in McHappy McMeals that don't exceed the recommended daily allowance of calories. Which, the vast majority of their food not only exceeds but doubles the recommended daily caloric, fat, sugars, and salt intake. Essentially the "Happy Meal" is a branding gimmick, sure, get the Stupid People to actually PAY for extra advertising. Mattel and Hasbro, makers of Violence Toys which promote militaristic stereotypes for boys and misogynistic stereotypes for girls, pay to have their "toys" advertising the full size and more expensive toys inserted into the kids' meals. Not just teaching the kids that overeating on the one hand and toys that promote sedentary activities instead of the running, walking, action-packed ACTIVE activities that human children are naturally suited to doing during play time. The McNews corporate whores here in town said the KIDS would be unhappy because of that, but really, did anybody force the PARENTS to not reward their kids with toys for eating a REAL meal with REAL food instead of the Fat-Food garbage? 20496

Americans fail survival: Par ce-que cest vous etes beaucoup Putains.

My original title was going te be Survival Show teaches non-survival, weve been watching Discovery Channel nature shows, today there was a show about swarms of various animals. One of the segments showed these flies that every 28.3 days (lunar cycle) float up from Lake Victoria in Africa. Showed among other things the villagers round about eating the flies, cooked of course, free protein is a luxury ticket item in most of the world. Miss Johnnie is kind of squeamish about things like that, but... the real story was this commercial for another show, Dual Survival which aired three times during the swarm show. Showing a team-survival situation with two men with vastly different styles of survival One of them was this Swede with Viking braids hanging down to his belly. And the other, an American. 17977

Think of it as enhanced evolution, Un-natural selection, cull the gulls…

The debate turns now to whether or not to rescue marine animals from the oil. Pelicans and gulls specifically, but there's more. Of course, animals that took millions of years to be what they are, should learn to mutate themselves a lot faster. Seagulls and turtles and manatees and sea-otters, fish, crustaceans, jellyfish, plankton, all need to mutate in a matter of days rather than eons. True, it would be a LOT simpler for the HUMAN species to modify our behavior, not set our entire economic plan on one focus, like Fossil Fuels. The plan with a built in Self-Destruct button that gets armed and starts ticking away once we drill the first well. Of course that first well was "well" over a century ago, BUT there's still time to ramp down the madness, get back to a point where we can actually turn off he Self Destruct switch. 17905

US and allies try to starve Zimbabweans into submission

The United Nations has just cut off funds to 4,000,000 starving Zimbabweans in line with US/ Great Britain made sanctions against that country. UN cuts food rations in Zimbabwe The goal is to starve Zimbabweans into total submission to these 2 imperialist countries. Don't look for a bunch of Hollywood actresses and college campus teenyboppers to come to Save Zimbabwe from the US and Europe, since it's off their radar screens to do so.

Food riots, economic sustainability, and the historical economic rate of growth

As the world moves toward recession/ depression, dragged down by the bursting US bubble economy, food riots are beginning to occur in multiple locales around the planet. The inflation rate in 2007 for food staple prices has been around 40%. See WFP food aid costs up "dramatically" in past weeks for the figure. The world population is currently growing at something less than 2% per year. 3077

The United Nations starves the poor in Haiti

What a pathetic spectacle, the great supposed defender of all humanity, all nations, and respecter of human rights everywhere... the United Nations... has its military now defending the national palace of a US installed group of thugs in Haiti. Yes, defending these thugs against the Haitian people who are demanding food and freedom from starvation. This is what US control over the United Nations Security Council has led to.

The Crawlers of St. Giles’s

This photograph by John Thomson appeared in a monthly magazine Street Life in London in 1877. Journalist Adolphe Smith added this caption: "Huddled together on the workhouse steps in Shorts Gardens, those wrecks of humanity, the Crawlers of St. Giless, may be seen both day and night seeking mutual warmth and mutual consolation in their extreme misery." 699
