Ridiculous complaints

I wonder why instead of complain about McDonalds, MS, Coca-Cola or any other successfull company for nothing ppl just not complain about Laboratories or Weaponry Companies ?

I just read someone saying in anohter threat that is silly food companies make money while ppl die without food....absolutely senseless comment.

While nobody cares about the sh!t laboratories charging us 50 bucks for a simple medication that exist on the market for more than 10 years.
Without saying the really expansive medication that reall goes over 1000.
Nobody cares about them ignoring the genetic cure for diseases, just to keep profiting the medication sells.
Pharmaceutic Laboratories are one of the most profitable business and nobody cares (just because no media talk about).

Without talking about the weaponry companies.

next time you want to complain, try to do for something that really worth instead of just following the media coverage.

i totally agree mate,i think this boils down to people not really carring about weapons companies....they dont see or feel the direct impact in the western world of a missiles being used far away in some other continent but give them the chance to gripe about Mc Donalds burgers fat content and all hell breaks loose....why is that?...i think it boils down to lack of eduaction?

Thx for your reply and your thoughts about this issue.

But as you can see this doesnt interest lots of ppl since is not massively covered by the media.

Im not sure abou the "lack of education", i would agree if the ppl complaining about the big companies (MS, McDonalds and etc) were from a 3rd world country.
The most part of these ppl are from well developped countries and as far as i know they have a good culture and education...(im not saying 3rd world countries have low culture and education, but its hard for most of them have access)
So what we could blame about this ?

Well....There are plenty of people out there who share your opinion Krpano - They know what the priorities should be....but many are easily distracted by those who are blatantly ignorant enough to think that they come before anyone else...

The fact is, that sometimes both issues can be important....Take for example the lady finding a finger in her chili - Most will agree that something needs to be done about that.....But the real problem is, that the media will play that as a headline story...."Breaking News"....When in fact, as I mentioned before, we have greater priorities to be addressed.....

There's a war going on with people many of us know in it, but some lady's incident with her chili is more important b/c the media knows we'll be revolted, we'll want something done, we'll never eat there again....

It's all just fun and games really.....That's what our species gets off on.....

hmm, i understand your point.

But maybe could we say that ppl from developped countries are easily manipulated ?

Maybe the culture and education we had lead us the be easiliy controlled ?
(not all of us)...maybe the middle range educated person.

God, maybe its me seeing things and beign paranoid ?

DID YOU ALL HEAR THE BIG NEWS, MICHEAL JACKSON TOUCHED A BOY. Lets forget about the war, and instead worry about a possible pedophile.

I figured i'd make an example of ignoring bigger stories. I'd guess that people complain about things like Mc Donalds making them fat, because they just want to live the American dream, of never having to work again, by that i mean sueing. And of course media teams cover their silly complaining because they dont like brining full coverage of important news stories.

Look at it this way in some circumstances eating to much fast food will kill you over a long period of time. A bullet will kill you straight away no time to complain and if no ones complaining the media dont care.
