This is a chain reaction problem. How much minerals we need to extract depends on how much we waste. So talking about this without talking about how long products last and the entire economics profession saying nothing about planned obsolescence for DECADES means the problem cannot really be solved. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gLBE5QAYXp8 Xum

And the lady on the left appropriately responded warning against being gullible. That "we have to be careful not to be gullible an not to be aware of people using strategic plots against us. And Obama is no exception. Misspoke my butt. He never misspoke about the plight of jewish folk, so no, I am not buying it.

To quote an analogy: " To call an person taken from one place to another against their will and 'involuntary immigrant' is to call a woman/female snatched off the streets taken to another country to be a sex worker in perpetuity an 'involuntary immigrant'. "

Nope. Carson is closer to white supremacist thinking than he is to Barack Obama. Comparing Obama with Ben Carson can be done, true enough, but that's muddy thinking. We don't need that. For an obvious example, can anyone imagine Obama saying this? ....hmm, the above quote may be bullcrap. I know Carson said, Obamacare was “the worst thing that has happened in this nation since slavery,” Same as Obama, nope, not even close. HEALTHCARE...SAME AS SLAVERY? WTF? Even if Carson didn't say that...

This is why miseducation is so dangerous. I know a lot of black folks who only refer to the bible as truth. And that slavery was mentioned in it cuz it was our sole role to serve massa. But there's no African history in the bible. None. And as you can see Carson a supposedly educated man is saying with a straight face that if it were for massa and his Christian faith, we Africans, the first homo sapiens sapiens, would still be swinging in trees...even though he said hanging from trees...
