Bowling for Columbine

| | Comments (1)

Bowling for Columbine was on the other night, so taped it and finished watching it tonight. It truly paints a frightening picture of America. Which is ironic because a major message in the film is that everyone in America is kept living in fear. The South Park-like video of the white people living in fear is very well done.

The statistics on gun deaths in America are just staggering. Like over *eleven thousand* per year in the US versus sixty-something here and a couple of hundred in countries like England, Germany and France.

I seriously don't get how a country with sooooo much money has problems with so many people on low incomes and next to zero health care unless you have insurance. Surely if they didn't spend all their money blowing up other countries and just taking care of their own people instead, it really could be a great country....

Yeah, I was saying exactly the same thing! Amazing difference even between Canada and the US when they're only just across the border with the same ratio of guns to people! Go figure!
