Congratulations on the 4lb Wii! What will happen with that Wii when it becomes obsolete in due time? What of the other 6 million, 4lbs Wii's that too will become obsolete? That is 24,000,000lbs of PCB, Plastic, toxics, and heavy metals that have to be discarded right? Would you rather have Nintendo or any other manufacturer create products that will not have toxins embedded within its plastic interior to leak in our air, soil, and water? That is basically what those "damn hippies" want, safer and sustainable products for you and everyone else. Damn those hipppy liberals and their health promoting ways!
And as far as owning a PC, driving a car, eating meat, and wearing clothing from overseas? I do the darn best I can with what is available for me. My PC components are used and are all ROHS certified. I gave up my 35mpg car and my 55mpg motorcycle and now carpool, take public transit(1 hr and 45min ride), walk, and bike. I get my veggies from a farmers market, and it beans and egg for protein. I proudly buy "made in USA" and if not I buy used clothing. It's the little things that we do that make a difference.
And I would not have to go through all those measures if not for the small minded individuals in society who inhibit actual progress. We have poor public transport, poor nutrition education, and we rely on poor people to make our clothes because we are to cheap to pay our own American brothers and sisters who need jobs.
So you can dwell in your feelings of powerlessness; but please, just because you cannot muster the strength or mental capacity to plan for a brighter future, it should not mean you should bad mouth those trying.
It's obvious you and others that think like you are locked in defeat of "follow the system," and it just shows how our leaders and corporations have thrawrted what it means to be American; to be able to stand againts those that wish to inhibit our health and happiness. I know I would not be happy seeing millions of electronics in my back yard, especially if those items are poisoning my fellow human beings.
