Great 58-year-old educational film.

If you have 10 minutes, I strongly recommend you watch

"Despotism"


(Click here to watch in RealPlayer, and here for Quicktime)

It would be wonderful to take this old film and remake it, editing in clips of recent events. Too much of this movie just hits home on too many issues our country has faced recently. It would be entirely possible to do this too, as the movie is in the public domain.

Brave Republicans.

Six Republican senators fought pressure from the Bush administration and voted against passing a Federal ban on Gay Marriage, so I wanted to take the time to mention them by name.

Senator Ben Nighthorse Campbell (R-CO)
Senator Lincoln Chafee (R-RI)
Senator Susan Collins (R-ME)
Senator John McCain (R-AZ)
Senator Olympia Snowe (R-ME)
Senator John E. Sununu (R-NH)

Uniters, not dividers.
