Update: Since the original video was removed from Youtube you can watch the video here.

WOW! I watched this video several times matching the lyrics and general mode of the song to the visuals being displayed in the video, in order to get what I think is the overall message Ms. Badu is trying to convey. I admit it it took me several views because I kept getting distracted by eye candy that is Badu's female form (I'm not as deep all the time as some would think/hope that I am). When I finally figured out what I think she was trying to say, I found that it was quite insightful and keeping with her provocative style.

I'm not going to pick apart the different aspects of this video (and their meaning) in this post though. I would much rather have others watch it and express what they got from it (well see if our thoughts match up).

Jon Stewart As Glenn Beck As A Crazy Nut Job!

Every now and then I am reminded how important satire is to the addressing of the serious problems (and those in the midst of them) happening in this country and around the world.

Mr. Beck's act is no longer amusing. I apparently gave a majority of Americans too much credit, when I said that they would be able to see through Beck's tomfoolery. Thankfully folks like Jon Stewart are around to paint a more vivid picture of the nonsense that is the Glenn Beck Show and hot mess that is going on at Fox News.

Maybe Government IS Broken!

Lone Senator Jim Bunning(R-Kentucky), single handedly stops the passage of a jobs bill, because...well I'll let him explain it.

I echo the thought expressed by Harry Reid. Where were Bunning's objections when there were two wars that were largely unpaid for (among other things)going on under the Bush Administration. At some point, our elected officials in Washington DC must ask the question, "If this is where we are, where the hell are we going?"
