I am glad this guy went nuts and exposed himself for the nut he is. Pulling on heart strings for personal profit and fame, disgusting.

this has turned into an epic fail. if the guy truly wanted to have a positive impact like our local guy that started "free the children" - i feel for Russell. He should've asked the Kielburger brothers first for some thoughts. such a shame if the intentions were truly pure.

Exactly!... This was exactly the reason why I didn’t jump the gun and crucify these guys when everyone was talking about how they spent their money in the wrong places. Some of the other arguments might have a little more merit, but I still don’t see enough evidence to suggest that these guys were in on some sort of US plan to go for Ugandan oil. At best they were an opportunity nudged in the ‘right direction’ at the right time by a few opportunistic people in governement.

I love how people are so quick to pull the trigger when someone looks like they are trying to do something good. Like everyone believes its impossible for someone to have a good intention with a flawed design (which is arguable anyway because their main goal was to raise awarness to invoke action, not donate food and clothing like other organizations, although some money was used for that).

But no one seems to question the backlash with the same level of skepticism.

lol I loved the Kony video. One of the rare occasions where my Political Science and History background made me feel so smart. 1 minute into the video I realized that this video was insanely late as the 2000 Amnesty Act was passed 12 years ago to alleviate the situation. Then it made me realize how sad my life was when I knew that off the top of my head.

tl;dr: My university education teaches me useless information.

I know you're probably being sarcastic...

But don't underestimate the perfect hamburger. People crave that shit and will pay good money for it too..

There are a few gourmet burger joints in Toronto, and they are all doing swell.
