"Acai? I don't even know what that is... but, we're spending billions of dollars on it and it's fraud."

Wes, thanks for pointing out the vid. A good one indeed.

It cracks me up how he spends the first half of the video touting our break throughs in fighting disease and then actually has the audacity to say our healthcare "sucks". Ahh.....which is it?

I actually really like the video, but this point was so contradictory it was laughable.

I think the point is, nobody knows who to trust. He can speak down to everyone, but people truly don't know who or what to trust.

Besides that, who complains about genetically engineered food? I guess I don't hear people talking about it.

It does seem like whatever man makes, has serious side effects, is this guy so arrogant to not realize this fact.
