As for the Chinese, slave labor should be abolished. Just watch this video. People working 14-16 hours a day - everyday without any time off. Women passing out from dizziness and eye strain due to long hours. One of the manufacturers claims it's no big deal, happens all the time and they recover. What about the long term affects? They probably rarely get to see their own families. Now that is what I call the rat race. What a shame. It's one of the reasons I don't shop at Walmart anymore. Unfortunately, most U.S goods now come from China and Walmart is just one of many in the U.S. There are many other stores but Walmart tops them all.

<quoted text> You probably won't believe me but it's true when I say that in all my 27 years of living in Kenya, I have never seen a lion, elephant or wild animals with my own eyes lol. I see them on TV. You see, most average Kenyans don't visit parks as they should. Too busy studying, working or conducting business or whatever. Maybe when I get the time and money, I will visit Serengeti. It's amazing from what I hear. You should visit sometime. In Kenya, it's known as Maasai mara National reserve. It extends to Tanzania to the south and it's known as Serengeti (i hope i'm correct on this), wildbeasts migrate annually between the Kenyan side to Tanzanian side and back and the Crocodiles have their big moment to truly feast.
I know what you mean AS. I was born and lived in America all of my life. I have yet to see all of the beauty of my country. I've been out west years before and it is beautiful. I've always loved the ocean, too. Unfortunately, you have to have a lot of money to live close to it. Of course when I think about the devastation of hurricanes like Katrina and Sandy; I'm kind of glad that I don't. I hope you find time someday to see the Serengeti. I would love to, as long as I'm inside a safe vehicle with shatterproof windows, lol.

Chinese labourers working in Apple factories in China commit suicide every now and then. It's corporate greed and Apple corporation should be ashamed of themselves :(

All the colonial powers were very very cruel. Their history has been destroyed. Now is the time to revive the real truth as truth and reconciliation and put the books just for record and move on without seeking revengemand let the bitterness go.

With human intelligence come cruelty, it's inevitable.
Way back we defended our lands from others, and the flip side was someone wants what others have. It's really the same now with more complications added like wanting to rule the world, control oil, technology, forcing ourselves on others. Doesn't the same caveman logic still apply?
As far as the animal world goes, it isn't as cruel as people are. Animals hunt for food, not pleasure. And they want to make a kill quickly as to not risk injury to themselves. A wounded animal is most likely one that will starve or be prey for another. Apples and oranges to compare human cruelty to animal survival.
Humans are the ones destroying our resources, not animals. We wipe out one animal only to watch another over breed, we strip our land of trees which help provide oxygen, we pollute the waters with waste. It almost makes you wonder just how intelligent we are.
Things to ponder .....
great post,

im gonna vote u in next time for President. lol

And if that works next comes China and Russia.

We're already being told we can't compete with that which seems to be the corporate way of telling us, we NEED to compete with that. Thus, the breaking of the Unions, the "right to work" BS and the *need* to do away with social services (...hand-outs...) and convince people that it's "necessary". The corporations can give us full employment if we're willing to make further concessions. It can happen here. It will happen here. And when it does, we'll just be so filled with nationalistic, Xtian pride because WE are helping OUR *job creators* and WE are the greatest country in the world! It'll be alright once, like the Chinese, we don't remember it being any different.
