How many of you have actually read "Dude, Where's My Country?" He actually makes a lot of sense in it, and not just about the stuff that comprised the bulk of Fahrenheit 9/11. I'm not a liberal, and I agree with a lot of what he says in the book. Him using this dead soldier for his own agenda is much like the Bush Administration's use of Jessica Lynch for their own agenda in Iraq. If you haven't read this book, you need to, while he does promote his pseudo-Socialist-Green agenda in it (I don't agree with all of his rants), some of the things he says in the book are quite logical. For example, in one part of the book, he says that paying employees a living wage actually makes a company more money. This is because employees that are paid low wages end up working two or three jobs to make ends meet, and as a result, productivity suffers all around. A tired employee is more prone to make mistakes, to have work accidents, to leave early, be sick more often, all things that cut into their overall job performance. People that don't make a living wage many times end up turning to the government for assistance, and who ends up paying for this? The taxpayers do, and as a result, we all end up paying higher taxes to continually support these programs. Paying a living wage is good for the economy as well, as your employees will have spendable income, money that could be spent on items you make or sell, and in turn, you make more money. Laying employees off or paying them low wages means they don't have a disposable income, and some will turn to crime to make ends meet. They won't be stealing the beat up junker in their neighbor's driveway; they'll be going after that $40,000 car parked in the driveway of some executive. If companies paid a living wage, then folks probably wouldn't be having to steal and rob to make ends meet, and that's beneficial to all.
