“Slacker Nation” September 23, 2008

This is not a political blog. Wellness Gossip is all about… yup, you guessed it, wellness. However, there are many different facets of wellness- we hit on a lot of them here.

The hard economic times, the war, pollution and the 45.7 million people in the U.S. living without health insurance-these things definitely affect our wellness.

Many of the solutions for these health concerns fall in the political world. It’s vital that we, as citizens, stay involved so that we can reclaim our own health. We must be conscious of how these important health issues affect the greater community-not just the inhabitants in our own home. There are 8.1 million children living without health insurance in the U.S. Amidst so many other struggles, we simply will never be a healthy community when 11% of our children are not able to see a doctor when they are sick.

On the website for Michael Moore’s new documentary, Slacker Nation, he writes: 

“This is being done entirely as a gift to my fans. The only return any of us are hoping for is the largest turnout of young voters ever at the polls in November.”

This “gift” Moore is referring to is the free download of Slacker Nation from his website– pretty cool.

Here’s the trailer for Slacker Nation:

Michael Moore is one of the more controversial documentarians. He’s definitely got an obvious point of view that he wants to make sure you understand. If you can ignore Moore’s bulldog, sometimes obnoxious personality, then you might dig the film. Also, try to ignore the political bashes that are present in the film- sometimes they distract from the real purpose, which is to motivate citizens to be active in creating a healthier and happier U.S. community.
