Holy -sorry Mods - can you move - I posted in the wrong forum - going for global meltdown or something like that - no finance other than the fact you
could buy a zillion pounds of PagPag for free...
PagPag is certainly GagGag. But humans survive anyway they can, and I hope after watching this, some of you are less concerned about the ding on your
hummer. More important ##SNIP## in the world today. This is happening everyday around the world; it's just amazing how it's become such an
industry...please watch these videos and read about this as it may open your eyes. Again, when the day seems dark, your tv is acting up and there
isn't enough money for that vacation you had been planning, realize how awesome things really are...
Pagpag in Filipino is the leftover food-stuff from fast-food restaurants scavenged from garbage sites and dumps. The word in the Filipino language
literally means to 'shake off', and refers to the act of shaking the dirt off of the edible portion of the leftovers. The act of eating pagpag arose
from the practical challenges of hunger that resulted from extreme poverty.
If you have never been to a third world country, go to one. If you have never been out of your country, go visit another one. These are our global
neighbors who one day could be you or me.
I saw this and experienced these conditions first hand: I cried openly on my first visit. I also threw up due to the smell. These people are in
Ecuador living in a massive valley filled with garbage: strangely, it sits below the collegio de San Francisco where all the rich kids go to
school...they too eat their own crap..
sort of gross yes...but you do what you have to make it in life...it couldn't taste that horrible either (i'd eat it) as it's recooked and
sauced...if in these people's shoes i'd eat a big steamy bowl of pagpag no problem
Yea it's bad over there. Was in the Philippines back in May/April and you would see a lot of kids outside fast food places and I remember at one
stage we were stopped at a corner waiting for traffic and I looked out the window and saw this poor kid sleeping on the side walk, some man walked by
slightly stopped , looked at the kid and just shook his head. It hit me hard to see that type of thing happening. Really harsh life those people have
These are our global neighbors who one day could be you or me.
If TPTB have their way this will become a global way of life.
I've watched the "soup kitchens" go from just addicts, mentally challenged and "low lifes" to what was once middle class citizens that
encountered one big medical issue, one job outsourced/insourced = job loss = forclosure.
Americans don't see the train coming.
They don't care about anyone until the brown stuff starts affecting them.
Well............you have all been warned.
Possibly this video will be the fate of most of our grandchildren if we do not take back our country.
Talk about putting things into perspective. 90,000 ppl per square kilometer?? We have 250,000 people in South-West Missouri and I rant about the
traffic and lines. I also dump things into the trash that have sat for what I consider "too long" on my kitchen counter. A video like this reminds
me..in some places..people would give a lot for that food I dumped.
If only there existed charities we could really trust to DIRECTLY help the people. I'd give generously and often without a problem given how much
just $20 a month, for example, would do for a place like this, multiplied by the # of people giving. I just don't know of any that are trustworthy
and don't have their administrators driving mighty nice cars and living in real nice homes in the U.S. or elsewhere.
Thanks for sharing this. It helps to be reminded, by shock sometimes, how well we really do have it in America and the rest of the 'Western World'.
Thanks for those thoughts Wrabbit2000...I hope the point isn't lost on everybody that this is completely man-made. We ourselves, when giving thanks,
should recognize that the scales of justice and equality mean different things in different nations. To be born poor is not a sin.
Yes, it does AnotherYOU. As a matter of fact, there are now people who actually go out of their way to sustain on "garbage diving". One could say
it is another yuppie green psycho deal, but why not?? The fact is, in the USA, there is quite a bit of good food thrown out on a daily basis.
I worked in a culinary school in Denver. All they did was make food. Everyday it was thrown out. We couldn't donate it to hungry people because of
the law. Stupid and wasteful.
America is suffering from national schizophrenia. Living in a patriotic fantasy land where fictional 1950 TV shows have become the cultural ideal.
But there are still those with honor and compassion; The kids that work at fast food places, that leave the dumpster unlocked so the homeless can
eat. And food banks that scroung food from farmers, restaurants, bakery's,
and private individuals; then give it to people in need.
I never thought I'd see so many Americans one paycheck from being homeless.
I suppose that's my point in saying - go see it for yourself - here there anywhere - go and participate in your communities and understand life is
not black and white; humans stuggle and many have the best intent, no support, no net, no family, and no hope. I revel in knowing somehow people make
it from these conditions - it just goes to prove no matter the circumstance, human will is still amazing...sucks it takes this stuff to show us
the cruel reality of this world is that someone somewhere has it way worse.
i say again, this is what fuels me to be a conspiracy theorist, forget the nwo, forget aliens, forget science and religion, forget war and space
exploration, forget politics, forget the damned worthless paper money.
theres no bigger conspiracy than why we still as humans allow that most of us live or better yet survive in the most inhumane conditions to this
also, those who care about survival and are always posting and wondering what and how to do things when SHTF and our way of live collapses, should
just go ask the people in africa, asia, south america, and pretty much anywhere. because living after SHTF is what those people have been doing for
actually the collapse scenarios are only a threat to westerners, the rest of the world is pretty used to living with zero.
