  File This Under What An F*ing Tragedy
I've just read this article about how the FDA is outlawing traditional asthma inhalers because they are CFC-powered. Lots of patients are having trouble with the new inhalers, which don't work as well and need to be cleaned regularly.

Talk about distraction.

Major corporate interests can keep pumping tons of pollution into the air, water, and earth. Builders can clear-cut trees. Our government can stay in their pockets. But people can't get the life-saving medication they need.

I'm as in favor of individual responsibility and consumer power as the next (informed, fired up, and terribly attractive) gal, but all this "simple ways to save the environment" hoo-ha is NOT ENOUGH. Attention must be turned to the big earth-killers, and it's gotta be now.

For more on this subject, check out this book:

...and stay alert.

Don't forget that illegal immigrants are also ruining our economy!
 
Seriously. And they hate freedom.

In a move that seems to amuse only me, I pull lines from the blogs I hit on the Next Blog button, and arrange them into found poem form.
