Fake?...... I only ask because in my beach town the Sierra Club likes to post fake photos of garbage on the beach as a way to get people fired up and motivated to make noise.

Clearly this isn't the norm or there wouldn't be a crowd. Might be their way of moving it from one place to another.

i dont want to go too far with my rant, but im energized.

So from what i think i know about plastic bottles is that coca cola (i cant find any information not even wacky ones). But lets just focus on what really happened when they switched from glass to plastic.
Capitalism and corporate greed.
Do i need to explain that glass is and was recycled and costs of using it was is higher, quality is better and they come up with a plan how not to recycle.
20-30 years later they are going o o o we fucked up lets make other people work for pennies. So they wont die in filth.

You can call it an idea that made that person rich or company or how it was all better, clearly it isnt. And same goes with other bright ideas of capitalism. All they care is profit noone is looking for the long run and then we are surprised, when we are lied to for their profits and hoping well get an idea. And we start to lie to get things, we steel and we are generally pro money. And money doesnt care. Thats why we have laws to make living better like recycling, registrations of cars, guns, hint hint
As in our great leader said i know your isle is in the middle of water, but before we help you there is a small payment of debt that we need to talk about.
I was watching "manuching the goldman sack robot guy" .. he said they send money, water and food to Puerto Rico. How fucking sad is that?
its like here is y-our money, we dont have paper towels you can make bum fire like Narcos guy did when his family was displaced.
Price gauge is another term that is a great product of money dont care capitalism.

Starting to think USA is hijacked by communists pretending to be capitalists.

It would be nice to think that this is going around like the baggage belt at an airport but of course this is a river and where is it heading? The ocean.

If you want to put this into some kind of perspective... If you got a net and fished out two different types of this plastic and were able to write a poem about the destruction of our planet on both pieces. There is a possibility that the first poem could be read by your Great, great, great, great, great, great Grandchild and the second poem by that Grandchild's great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great grandchild. Makes you think doesn't it? 8-)

God is faith in humanity and capitalism is faith in money.
And Marks thinks profit should be shared onto humanity not individuals.
we dont need to talk about who is sharing the loss.
For someone to profit other-s have to lose. good and evil.
Good way to make someone lose is to bomb them.
Good way to not get bombed is to have Nukes in air water and land.
Is this really the way? there are better ones, just threaten them with bombs and money. economic terror - when bank do it legal its called something else is it too big to fail?

Now lets see how many socialist are here, i think every communication is social act, being social is human nature. So when people agree that they will represent one flag that is socialism.

And communism is when socialism on human lvl fails and we need to take force to get things done the way we want to.
Bring army money what ever is needed to get it our way.

Jihad is same as communism. When spreading of faith on human level fail they need to get drastic.
As for Catholic Church clearly roman empire was communistic and clearly church wasnt shy about using force and other form of intimidation.
Then economy was born. shall i go on? we found new form of intimidation. Money and with printing even better now its electronic its fucking fantastic.
Anyone can come up with something and say its true as long as there is enough people backing him up. Doesnt matter if its true or not. :), but we must agree on one thing. Science is the best to know anything. We dont know shit we just know what they tell us.
Omg science private corporation science is fucking evil "ha", here i found the circle back to plastic science. why wasnt this science invented before polluting the planet? Noone calculated the waste this would produce ofcorse not. that would be stupid. who would do such a thing.

Jeeez humans get your act together! This has to stop. So depressing. We humans are so reluctant to change our habits. We do have the means to stop this. We have the technology out there to deal with all the trash and pollutants. But as long as big oil companies rule we will destroy this beautiful planet. How far does this have to go before we act? Listen to Paul Hellyer, former defence minister of Canada. He said: "When ww2 begun all industry was transformed for the war effort. Everything had to change in order to survive and It was done in really short time. We did change then so there's no reason we can't do it now."

#14 i do admire your enthusiasm, but problem is in system....oil companies operate, just operate in this system. This system is bad for humanity. Its not them.

The problem is always in the system, we know every single living creature is a mistake that should be admired. Even not living stuff and Donald or any dictator in history. They did it against the odds. But they did it with power and money. Not by reason and logic.

Logic is something i think i use when i play pyramid game.
1st you learn, invest time and money then preach and teach then harvest. This is basics. But usually you see out there is tiny pyramid scams where you need to spend or invest money then recruit other soon you have god loving meeting with dress codes and high fees. Biggest known to me is "Scientology" and forget the ones that are not spoken of. Just forget them.

Still there is a time, when time to harvest comes it has to be by force.

And its same for every book. Old testament more or less how fucked up human can be. New testament we are better. Quran we are better. Science we are better, we are batter to fuck up. We are still just human no matter that kind of tool we get.

oh someone came to gave me down vote check this dude on you tube Bright Insight
