ABC News Suggests Eating Out of a Dumpster as Viable Alternative to "Spending"

This is just pathetic. ABCNews has hit a new low. In a puff-piece about the new found wonders of dumpster diving for food titled "Freeganism: Dumpster Diving to Buck the Spending Trend ABCNews is risking the health of the public by pushing an absurd notion that eating food retrieved from a dumpster is a legitimate alternative for people living in America. Eating out of a dumpster is DANGEROUS.

But that doesn't stop ABCNews from offering dumpster diving for food, or "Freeganism", a term George Carlin would have torn to shreds, as a viable alternative to "spending".

Amid S&P downgrades and widespread panic about financial markets, an anti-consumerism movement quietly marches on: Freeganism.
Freeganism, which popped up in the early 90s, rejects the idea of overspending as a "national addiction," according to New York City freeganist, Madline Nelson. The movement goes beyond veganism's rejection of animal products and bucks consumerism for sustainability. It has spread worldwide, with Freeganist websites in French, Norwegian and Portuguese.

Freeganists practice dumpster diving for food, composting and recycling. They also walk or bike instead of driving, "squat" in abandoned buildings, eat local and "work less," according to the freegan.info website.

    This is absurd. Where writer Reshma Karpalani of ABCNews is trying to make it seem that eating out of a dumpster isn't that bad by pointing to ONE person, Madline Nelson of New York City, whose agenda conveniently dovetails with the beltway village idiocy of the idea that somehow "spending" is too blame for our woes, and anyone can fend for themselves without adding to the "spending", just look at Madline Nelson!

wait till they ban the Lalecheleague unless they are TSA inspected and approved

Why do you think it absurd and dangerous?   Any vulture can attest to dumper diving benefits !

this is funny cuz the girl scored a dozen loafs of bread  in the dumpster behind fiamily dollar.

it was whats for dinner to night, pretty good in fact.

Yuck, puking in mouth as I type. I mean, come on..... really? Who would even suggest such a thing? I suppose it's coming from population control nutcases. Eating out of a dumpster is one sure way of diseasing oneself. It can't be very good for the health.

"ABCNews has hit a new low."

Oh no -- there is no "new" low. They have always been as low as they can be....

 

BTW: MSM just follow orders. Question is what exactly are they selling and for whom? Tara has a suggestion ("I suppose it's coming from population control nutcases"). And I somehow have a feeling this again has to do with them planning to sustain ourselves with less and less. Case in point is the new food chart: almost as appetizing as the dumpster stuff:

And the New Food Pyramid:

Old one:

P.S. Maybe this is "Obamanomics"/"Trickle-Down Nutrition" ala Reagan: "Let us gorge ourselves and you can feed on our leftovers from the dumpster!"
