Yeah, I know, this movie is old but I still decided to post this trailer. This is a good movie and I would recommend everyone see it. I am not sure Michael Moore has the solution for all our problems but this movie at least can create dialog..

Dr. Ron Paul on Healthcare-
Here is Presidential Huckabee’s position on healthcare.
High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS) should be avoided at all cost! I challenge everyone who reads this to try for 1 week to avoid any food with the ingredient: high fructose corn syrup.
You will be shocked at how difficult this is. Examine your children’s food’s and you will be shocked at how many foods have high fructose corn syrup. HFCS is the main reason our kids are overweight and obese and on their way to becoming diabetics. In addition, lack of exercise and too many video games don’t help.
The following is a partial list of some common drinks, for both kids and adults, which are loaded with HFCS. When present, losing weight will be almost impossible to lose.

Too Much Fructose Could Leave Dieters Sugar Shocked
ScienceDaily (2007-12-14) — Dieters should focus on limiting the amount of fructose they eat instead of cutting out starchy foods such as bread, rice and potatoes, report researchers, who propose using new dietary guidelines based on fructose to gauge how healthy foods are. … > read full article

A Carbon Tax is the next tax citizens of the world will likely have to pay, those of us in the US will pay more. All this in the name of global warming. The more CO2 (carbon dioxide) you release, the more money you have to pay. CO2 is the main component of the air you exhale when you breathe… will this also be taxed? Will we survive the global warming scenario or will we all be underwater?
The theory goes that since human emissions are causing global warming, taxing these emissions should decrease CO2 output and slow global warming. National Geographic recently pointed out that Mars and its polar caps are also melting- few would try to argue that fossil fuel emissions from SUVs are responsible. Also, pluto is also heating up- last I checked, Ford doesn’t export their SUVs export beyond earth.
The National Geographic article goes on to explain that our global warming trend may primarily be due to solar variations while human emissions have negligent impact. Harvard Physicists have also shown that the Sun’s temperature is increasing, which is playing a large part in our global warming. As many may recall, back in the 1970s, when many cities had more than they do today, their was a scientific consensus that we were on the cusp of a global ice age. Today, just 30 years later- the exact opposite.
In other words, global warming is due to a universal heating trend from solar emissions and warming and not just a global trend from SUV emissions. Now, I am not saying fuel efficient cars are not a good idea. At $3.50 gallon the fact that our cities are smog filled, this alone is a good reason to increase fuel standards. In addition, the cleaner the air, the less asthma problems people will have.
Whatever the cause of global warming- we will likely be paying another tax whether you like it or not. For more on a global carbon tax, visit www.carbontax.org.
