Indeed catherder, "Fat America', the world looks on.
It occures to me the the global top dog of consumerism, (america) needs to take stock of reality. "throwaway society" is no longer acceptable. Why
is it that it takes a disaster like new orleans to rock the lazy, careless boat of gluttonous consumerism.
Now folk are hungry, wheres that 96 billion pounds of food you guys threw on your streets last year?
no real equality in America, where folk starve in alleyways, while the rich dine in luxury, and so much ends up trash.
Most appauling to me is the practice (here too) of restaraunts etc, who thow out enormous amounts of food each day in dumpsters, while folk starve,
only because it wasnt sold, or was slightly imperfect. Shame, Shame, shame.
How about some fine restraunts in the rest of the country donate to new orleans?
Note: Pls do not misunderstand me, Im not concerned with how folk look, A person in need is a person in need regardless of size. I simply refer to the
culture of gluttonous consumerism of the whole nation. Its continues to escalate yet in times of disaster like now, you hear people whining theres no
food, makes me sick. Where is the national emergency aid storehouses
containing a percentage of the vast abundance for times of need like now?
where is all the food? go take a walk around your citys, all that abundance is overflowing from your dumpsters n street bins every day, every week,
Waste not, want not. Your nations food stores (supermarkets/grocery)
should be donating the thousands of tons of food they pulled off the shelf on friday to be replaced with more on monday, instead of filling
send that to new orleans!
