U.S soda addicts outraged over song, largely unconcerned with toxic ingredients

The peculiar way in which most Americans choose what they will and won't become outraged over, will likely make for fascinating sociological discussions in the future. On a daily basis American citizens are poisoned by their government, both overtly and covertly, through their food, land, air and water. Each day they are brutalized and murdered by uniformed slave foremen sometimes called police officers, and are robbed at long distance gunpoint by extortionists like the IRS. None of these real life horror shows seem to collectively phase the American people, however.

While there are numerous encyclopedias worth of information clearly demonstrating the victimization of the American people by their traitor-run government, the average American seems to delight in the fact that these uncomfortable issues are not paraded in front of him or her on the ever exalted television. After decades of painstakingly organized conditioning, the average American seems to have equated the absence of television air time for a topic with the absence of legitimacy for that topic. If corporate media doesn't cover it, it doesn't exist, as far as the average aspartame addicted fizzy water drinker is concerned.

While Coke or Pepsi may have neglected to mention it during their commercials, it is undeniable that both coca-cola and Pepsi-cola are among the most toxic over the counter beverages available to the public. From mercury toxicity in the packaging to genetically mutated corn used as a sweetener, the amount of health problems associated with this form of liquid candy are virtually innumerable. Aspartame, a chemical in diet colas, alone makes up the majority of complaints filed with the FDA. Yet, as cancer rates continue to climb, and as diseases like diabetes and obesity affect more and more of the population at younger and younger ages, none of this appears to be of any import whatsoever to the average soda pop addict.

The issue of great contention for these dietary nihilists, rather than their impending cancer diagnosis, is the fact that Coke aired a commercial featuring the song "America the Beautiful" sung in various languages. No, they don't want to have to press "1" to read their blood sugar levels in English, nor do they think this country was founded so they should have to receive their Alzheimer's diagnosis in anything other than perfect Queen's English. In typical armchair patriot fashion, many of these linguistic critics incorrectly identified "America the Beautiful" as the national anthem, a question many of the immigrants they criticize likely answered correctly on their citizenship questionnaires.
