I won't be voting for Barack. I don't support the continuation of Guantanamo. I don't support his killing American citizens with drones. I don't support his killing Pakistanis with drones. I don't support his refusal to address the highest unemployment rate (that would be for my age group, my gender and my race -- I'm very lucky to have a job, a lot of African-American men my age do not). I am not for illegal wars (the Libyan War is all Barack). I am not for ObamaCare or other attempts to avoid bringing America what is needs (universal, single-payer health care is the only answer).
So I'm not for him.
And I'm not for Scarlett.
Not going to be wasting my money on her films anymore.
She wants to pimp for a Corporatist War Hawk? That's fine. But I will not see her movies now.
Matt Damon's found out just how difficult it is to go around insulting Americans and still sell tickets. Scarlett will discover that as well.
(Matt Damon has walked back that zeal for Barack. It might be the smartest thing he's done for his career.)
I really don't need you to tell me how to vote. But if you think you have that right, I'll be happy to respond by judging you by the politicians you endorse.
A lot of White acts found out the hard way that whoring for Barack wasn't going to play with the peace audiences that had supported them. A lot of white acts still strum their guitars but no longer sell those albums. Those indie rockers found out what it really means to be indie.
Going out with C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:"
