I think your take was very well done! Most people are really trying to over-simplify what the video is about so that they can bash it more. My favorite analysis so far can be found here: http://bitchmagazine.org/post/tuning-in-mias-born-free

One thing that your interviewer gets wrong is that actually there is a history of discrimination against red-haired people, at least in England. I've read that hundreds of years ago, they were often accused of witchcraft, and to this day, "ginger" kids get beat up at school.

Thanks for a well thought out response, and I totally agree with you!

Most of the men we studied have CKD from unknown causes," he says.

What the men is his area have in common is they all work in farming. So Dr Orantes thinks a major cause of their kidney damage is the toxic chemicals - pesticides and herbicides - that are routinely used here in agriculture.

The eventual result of untreated DPB can lead to respiratory failure and heart problems. Daily treatment of DPB with macrolide antibiotics such as erythromycin eases symptoms and increases survival time, but the disease has no known cure

Every smile you fake every claim you stake,

The Great Wall of China is a series of fortifications running in general east to west through the entire northern part of China, which is made of stone, brick, tamped earth, wood, and other materials, built originally in part to protect the northern borders of the Chinese Empire or its prototypical states against intrusions by various nomadic groups or military incursions by various warlike peoples or forces.

You say it's all in my head
And the things I think just don't make sense
So where you been then? Don't go all coy
Don't turn it round on me like it's my fault
See I can see that look in your eyes
The one that shoots me each and every time

An empty street
An empty house
A hole inside my heart
I'm all alone
The rooms are getting smaller
I wonder how
I wonder why
I wonder where they are
The days we had
The songs we sang together

Is that movie really obscure?
I came to Portugal in 1992, it was perhaps the first movie i watched here in Lisbon, not sure, tho.

Perhaps because the democratic party is less a holistic tower ( not that i know a thing about USA politics )?

I think conservatives bleeds into every USA fabric, including the Democratic party.
Main reasons (i think):
Ignorance ( cultivated by the corporate media ) and the myth of USA's singularity that benefits the conservative agenda, not forgetting hard line christianity.

sports memorabilia denverRight on Chris! All was well said. But if this clown is who we have to face down in 2012, hopefully, it will be a cakewalk. Good for John Legend! More musicians who have the means should do the same. A much better way to have folks hear your stuff than conventional advertisement, plus it helps keep art in the world. I was not familiar, did a couple of clicks, now I'm a fan. Keep it up, man.
