Why am I only just hearing about the G8 Summit for the first time? This year marks the 31st annual meeting of the G8 and I’ve never heard of it before, despite the fact that last year it was held in our country!

Why hasn’t there been more press surrounding this?

And what the fuck is with every celebrity joining the ONE campaign? I just can’t get on board with the whole “ONE” thing for the same reason I despise the Livestrong bracelets (note that I’m talking about the bracelets themselves and not the actual cause they support); it all just seems like a fad.

“Hey, man, it’s cool to hate poverty!”

Just like it’s cool to plaster American flags all over everything? If people =really= gave a shit, they would have been plastering American flags all over everything =before= 9/11. Same thing here. If people actually cared about world poverty (and weren’t just jumping on the bandwagon in an attempt to be cool), the “ONE” campaign wouldn’t exist, because neither would world poverty.

  1. I completely agree. Especially about those stupid bracelets. It isn’t as though donning a cheap rubber bracelet is going to cure the evils of the world. I hate Hollywood with a passion. And as for the American flags everywhere – if I see one more worn out magnetic flag on someone’s car bumper, I am going to kick some ass. I have always been patriotic, but it is amazing to me how many people never even had a flag and immediately starting waving them around after 9-11. Or started wearing NYPD and NYFD shirts and hats. It just gets frustrating.

  2. OH! YEAH! Man, I totally forgot about the NYPF/FD schwag. Christ.
