“i expected the polarized opinions this film received from some of the commentators here… thereu0026#39;s one that said something about u0026#39;10 years later/very little progressu0026#39;. something about u0026#39;small stepsu0026#39;… but theyu0026#39;re wrong. LARGE steps have been taken by the businesses. how many of you know about the limited access corridor being constructed from Mexico to canada through the midwest? a turnpike that will carry goods made outside of US to places nearby this route. the contract was given by bushu0026#39;s people to a very, very wealthy construction firm from spain. the owner is one of the richest men in the world. the materials used to build this turnpike will be shipped into Mexico ports and then dispersed where needed. probably using mostly non American labor.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003enow maybe some of you will understand part of the point of this movie. there IS no such thing as countries anymore. not with administrations such as the present one. itu0026#39;s big business interest. and if youu0026#39;re a big business the bushu0026#39;s will do business with you. witness the bin laden family, which have been u0026#39;buddiesu0026#39; with the bushes from u0026#39;way backu0026#39;… witness grand daddy bush doing business with the Nazis as they began their quest for world cleansing and domination. all this is documented and accessible if you just do a little work looking for it… why not start with Congresswoman Marcy Kapturu0026#39;s(democrat/Ohio) explanation of the corridor on u tube? thatu0026#39;ll help make believers out of the skeptics. this isnu0026#39;t some u0026#39;quacku0026#39; with a conspiracy theory.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003emy location is listed as netherlands. i left the US b/c i donu0026#39;t like what the people in control are doing and this is my way of protest. not paying them with my tax dollars. each of us have to find a way to react to this piecemeal sale of the US…hopefully non violent no matter what the response… the people with the money do, after all, control the militaries. and not just the American one. or you can just not believe…not do ANYthing and be surprised at what transpires… no review of a movie will MAKE you do anything. thatu0026#39;s up to you. good luck.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eps remember how easy it would be to check this out. as easy as it was to u0026#39;get HEREu0026#39;, internetwise…”
