Seeing as our current President refers to the Constitution as "a goddamned piece of paper," you might want to start investigating your options.

Vote you goddamned fucking pieces of shit who are classified in the same generation as me. And all the rest of you too. If I hear "don't blame me, I didn't vote." one more time in the entirety of the rest of my life, I am seriously going to lose it. You deserve no protection of a government (functioning or otherwise) if you do not participate.

Here's two candidates worth taking a look at if you're as sock as I am of posturing, payoffs, and pundits. Mike Gravel and Ron Paul. Get registered, vote in the primaries, and maybe, just maybe, we'll get the opportunity to vote for someone worthwhile. Stop voting lesser of two evils, vote with your mind.

Africa Addio

I just found out that one of the most brutal, intense, and powerful documentaries ever made (in my humble opinion) is up in it's entirety on google video. The film is Jacopetti and Prosperi's harrowing Africa Addio (Goodbye Africa). And it appears in it's entire 2hr and 18 minute European cut. The American cut by compare is vulgar and insulting, whereas the full film is one of the most intense, terrifying, and complex films I have ever found. It is NOT AT ALL for the squeamish. THIS MOVIES IS ROUGH. One of the roughest I've seen. The directors went to Africa right as the British were pulling out. They simply chronicle the chaos that ensued all over the continent. From poaching, to genocide, they captured it on film. The documentary was harshly criticized for racism, but I can find no case in the official cut. The exploitative American cut however, is another story entirely, and and unfortunate blemish on two incredibly intelligent and highly respectable filmmakers.
