This advertises is a child's product available on Amazon. You will be astonished by what the product is--a toy for little kids. Then you need to look at the related products below, because they are even more surreal than the featured product. And then, scroll down and start reading the comments. Anyone accustomed to Amazon knows that most products (books, DVDs, etc) will have a few comments, split between positive and negative--always serious. This product has 48 reviews--virtually all satirical. Some are truly hilarious, all are politically biting. It is truly an outpouring of spontaneous political satire. Just read the first few and see what I mean. This is one of the most entertaining (and enlightening) web sites I have seen in months.

Since the site´s rules require one to purchase the item, I could not add
my own evaluation. I have no 5 year children around to make them this
wonderful and educative gift.
Here it goes, FYEO, then.
I want to thank the Playmobile company because the very sight of this product has brought to my mind the fondest memories of everyday life during the 1976-83 dictatorship in Argentina. I only missed a Kissinger Office Set where a Playmobile Henry K. might nod understandingly at the representatives of that regime complaining at the lambasting campaigns they were subject to by "liberals" in the affluent countries.
I understand that Playmobile doesn´t represent realities of life outside the borders of the highly developed countries, which is a reasonable marketing decision: most children there are too busy working in the streets and cannot use Playmobiles, nor are most of their parents (or other relatives) in a position to buy Playmobile toys for their children.
I guess that perhaps a good array of Social Deprivation Sets and
Institutional Violence Sets would appeal to many parents in those
countries, however, and thus lure those potential buyers, but you still
have the problem of lack of money.
May I suggest, just to give a better idea of what is going on today,
that a IDF Gaza Checkpoint Set be prepared. Our children have a right to grasp the realities of the world they are living in.
Wow, how our world is changing.
I will support gun control when you can guarantee all guns are removed from this planet. That includes military and law enforcement. When you can accomplish that, then I will be the last person to lay down my gun. Then I will carry the weapon that replaces the gun.
At a loss for words.

... and it even comes with the lead paint and toxic chemicals!
Let 'em learn early, then they'll be more compliant.
I might have to buy one for my Brother, who works for the TSA.

service of his country; but he that stands it now, deserves the
love and thanks of man and woman."

I think kids would get bored and start coming up with stuff to make passengers do to try to make the job a little funner kinda like what real TSA agents do,and when you protest get tasered
