Eric Schlosser


This book was fabulously written and horribly depressing. Eric Schlosser, thank you so much for doing this research and putting it forth for the "American public" to access so that we can make our informed decisions about where we put our money, what we put into our bodies, and who we fight against. All I want to do right now is somehow force the fast food industry to change its ways, as someone who cares what happens with the future of this planet and the life on it.

I was truly outraged for about two weeks after I read Fast Food Nation. It didn't take too long before I was pounding a double cheeseburger and fries.

oh well.

I'm almost done with Reefer Madness right now, about halfway through the chapter on the porn industry. I'm having a hard time getting really outraged about the persecution of users and growers of marijuana, the plight of migrant workers, and those exploited by the porn industry when there are some very much more pressing problems in the world, specifically the illegal war for oil in Iraq, the unprecedented dismantling of our social safety net, the rapid erosion of our constitutional rights under the illegitamate Bush administration, and our great country's spiral into financial ruin.

I think even the DEA knows for certain that the drug war is a hoax and a terrible joke on the American public. But they have way to much invested to stop the machine now. The only power that can do that is you and I. Forget the million man march! How about twenty-five million pissed off pot smokers marching down Pennsylvania Ave. with a doobie in one hand and a voter registration card in the other. All demanding de-criminalization and the release of the poor bastard in prison for smoking a damn joint! Politicians understand votes mean power, and they don't want to give up power for any reason! What we need in this country is a good old fashioned revolution-It's what a democracy needs now and then. The Captain
