Blood Diamonds,,,,

nasty business.....

making slaves out of people to mine diamonds....

and the diamonds were bought by a companies,, and supplied to the rest of the world.

THE COMPANIES,,, were using EVOLUTION/NATUAL SELECTION practices,, of procurring raw materials at the least possible price,,,

and these diamonds were purchased by other people throughout the world,,, as a means to impress or garnish ourselves in an effort to procreate,,, much like the peacock with greatest plumage wins the "who gets to fvck" game.

It is not evil,,, evil is a label. If it were evil,,, it would be the miners were enslaved and tortoured simply to watch them suffer,,,, (although I have to think about the motivations of these people,,, and their efforts to satisfy that internal need,, with the resources available to them.)......

IT IS A SYSTEM ERROR,,, not a moral error. We may use morals to define the system error,,, "Oh,, ,that is wrong,,, let's change it."

Case in point,,,, the companies,,, when faced with the loss of cheap "blood diamonds",,, did not find other avenues to tourture people when regulation shut down blood diamonds,,, they went to more expensive to operate mines,,,, ie.... CANADA.

Do we have slave labor in Canada,,, like we saw in Africa? No. Why?

If it is truely evil companies,,, why did there evil not cross into Canada?

Could it be,,, different environments?

Ask the typical guard of a former blood diamond mine,,,, WHY DID YOU DO IT? Answer,,, IF I DIDN"T, THEY WOULD EITHER KILL ME OR MAKE ME A MINER.

Sounds alot like SURVIVAL,,, not evil.

When we attach labels,,, and attempt to define a company or action by "morals",,, we are not correctly identifing the problem,,,, and therefore our solutions are not accurate to correct the problem.

EXXON,,, is not evil. Corporations are not evil. They are large systems,,, much like our government,,, that procure resources from the easiest,, cheapest place,,, and the system dictates how the resources are used.

When we hear someone attack Obama as evil,,,, do we really think he is evil? No,,, I don't. I think someone is trying to define the actions and policies of the administration,,, the government system,,, in the definition of their morals.

Same goes for a corporation.

And until you get the notion of morals,,, good and evil,,, out of the process for finding solutions,,, you are never going to find a good solution.

If their knee-caps knock together as they walk, making a syncopated 'clacking' sound, they are too darned skinny!

In that case they need a few Big Macs w/fries and a shake...

As for someone being to skinny, some of that has to do with a little called genetics. And yes genetics does play some role into peoples weight. I am a prime example of that, as I have tried so many of the wonder diets, including Lap-Band surgery 8 years ago.

One of the things I do have a problem with is OUR government sending BILLIONS in food aid to other countries that will not even take care of its own people. North Korea is a prime example. Why are WE the American people feeding them when THEY would rather spend BILLIONS on nuclear weapons????

I also believe that certain things should be banned on the Food Stamp program, like some states allow fast food on EBT???

I would send all the food in my possession and all the food we as americans waste on a daily basis to N. Korea, as I don't believe that the people should starve and be punished for what one crazy, psycho dictator wants to accomplish. N. Koreans don't really have a choice but to follow and starve in order to avoid prison.

Even with genetics I believe you can still be at a healthy weight. No one is shoving these unhealthy foods down your throat. Lessen your calories and you will lose weight ...even if you have the "fat" gene. Which I think is just another excuse for americans being overweight. I have yet to see a fat african....other than the dictators that have access to foods. So it reasons to think that everyone can be at a healthy weight.

That healthy weight line is so blurred right now, that no one really knows anymore. One week it's BMI 30 and the next it's 0 BMI

One is to skinny when it affects the normal functions of the body. When the body eats itself. When teeth start rotting, when the wind blows you away, when your belly is extended for lack of food......

No I am sorry I don't believe we should send aid when we have so many here in this country that need our help. I am a firm believer that we take care of our own house first. Our own country used to be ruled by a psycho dictator as well until we had this little thing called the American Revolution.

And NO ONE is shoving unhealthy food down my throat including ME. Thanks to some really beautiful ulcers 3-4 days a week my unhealthy food consist of yogurt and water. Don't judge what you know nothing about please.

My posts are general....not directed towards anyone.

Yogurt, while good for an ulcer, is not enough to keep your body functioning, it will go into starvation mode and you will end up gaining more weight......

I don't think N. Koreans can uprise against their dictator, they are to weak from starvation to fight. :))

There is opportunity and help for those starving in this country.....

exactly....

but it takes taxpayer dollars.. or real jobs for all (at a fair living wage....). to pay for this...

not a party where the rich get richer ( by outsourcing real jobs or importing cheap goods ) and the poor...go on welfare.. to the point now.. where the rich want to do away with welfare....

BUT..
my soap box....

what I have noticed when I see ebt purchases... is the purchaser is usually overweight.... ...
