All the really bright people in America are turning to the Internet to stay informed. On the Internet, the truth is out there... the truth about health, junk foods, renewable energy and even coffee. Yes, coffee (see the trailer below). You won't find this information in the bread-and-circuses mainstream media, either! Here are five must-see
videos that every solution-oriented person needs to watch:
Who Killed the Electric Car?
This jaw-dropping documentary tells the true story of how auto manufacturers conspired with lawmakers to destroy the concept of clean electric vehicles in order to ensure continued profits from combustion-engine cars. You'll be amazed to see how auto makers actually confiscated electric cars and had them shredded in order to get them off the roads! Features Tom Hanks and other celebrities. Trailer at:
Meet Your Meat
Want to know where that chicken, pork and beef really
comes from? If you dare, watch this utterly frightening video narrated by Alec Baldwin. Personally, as I'm a supporter of the human treatment of all animals, I couldn't get past the first five seconds. But maybe you can (WARNING: This may cause you to lose your lunch, especially if you ate meat for lunch...) Really. Big warning here. This video is beyond words.
Black Gold movie documents the real economic story behind the coffee you drink
Coffee is the drink of sophisticated people. They're complex, well-educated, savvy and self-confident. Oh, and yeah, they're also supporting an industry that drives coffee farmers and their families into extreme poverty, exploiting their hard labor for outrageous corporate profits and the spread of viral yuppie coffee shops that appear on every street corner like a bad skin rash that won't go away.
Caffeine. It's America's recreational drug of choice, and there's a dark side to this industry that sophisticated coffee drinkers don't want to face. Check out this video trailer of Black Gold:

Be careful what you eat
If you're in the mood for a light-hearted, entertaining song-and-dance animation about the dangerous ingredients in everyday foods, watch "Be Careful What You Eat," featuring the Animaniacs. They're good. They even found a way to rhyme words with "monosodium glutamate."
Vending Machine by Faerie Films
This film is still in its early editing stages, but it promises to be an eye-opening look at how junk foods and soft drinks are destroying the health of our nation's youth. Featuring interviews with schoolchildren as well as health experts, this documentary exposes the corporate invasion of public schools with hard-hitting information that dares to tell the truth. (Disclaimer: I'm on the advisory panel for this film. It's a non-paid position.) Watch the trailer at:
FBI director urges ISPs to track and record all users' online activities
By the way, while you're watching all the videos mentioned above, don't forget who's watching you! As part of the new American police state, the FBI now wants all Internet Service Providers to track and record the online activities of all users
, including the innocent ones (like... maybe... you?) If you still believe in the U.S. Constitution, you must be a terrorist. But read this gut-wrenching story by News.com reporter Declan McCullagh anyway:
