The video had some good points, but was a little too extreme.
I'm fairly certain the twin towers were hit by planes. The most logical theory I've heard on that is Bush knew it was going to happen, and did nothing to stop it. Whether it's true, I don't know. I've been told the very same thing was tried while Clinton was in office 9 times, but his people caught them. And gee, they didn't didn't need all this ridiculous security. Maybe he just had other priorities and paid no attention to national security. But then of course after the attack he took full advantage of it, didn't he?
It's also very true that people are more engrossed in the lives of celebs than what's going on around them. My one friend talks about celeb gossip all the time, cuz I guess she thinks I care, but I doubt she could find Iraq on a map. My boyfriend went to school with seniors who couldn't read. Education funding keeps being gutted. That part of the video I do agree with. Undereducated people tend to be complacent. A disturbingly large part of the population is quite content to sit in front of the TV and get into all of these reality shows. How many people know what the Bill of Rights is, and what's in it?
The chemical thing I don't know about. Vaccines I'm on the fence about. The preservatives can't be good for us. I know we have livers that are meant to deal with toxins, but they're everywhere. Autism is a problem now, and it wasn't before. Whether or not vaccines have anything to do with it we'll probably never know. There's enough money at stake to really make me wonder about the scientist who swear up and down the guy who said they were is a crackpot. After all, studies generally come out in favor of whoever funded it. I swear, two different groups on different sides of an issue could do the exact same study, and both come up with results that prove their point.
I do know that after being given the MMR vaccine as a baby I had a seizure hours later. My parents decided not to give me the rest of them, and I haven't had one since. I think all the requirements that kids have to have now to go to school is just bullshit. It should be up to the parents. If people are so worried about public health, well, the vaccinated kids are safe, unless vaccinations don't work... But chickenpox? I had it. It sucked, but I survived. The secret to a healthy immune system is using it. My doctor had to lie on my physical form because I didn't have my MMR booster shots since we're pretty sure the first one is what gave me the seizure.
The things is the elite do rule the country. They are the new nobility. Of course, we got out from under British rule, so we can knock the 1% down a notch, it'll just take a lot of people getting angry enough. We're well on our way.
