Sorry for the lack of productiveness, but I'm back in action now (after writing a nice, 15 page paper on the geological features of Iceland *slams head into desk*). Ugh. Anyways. Moving on.
Here are some pictures from 4th of July which was really just a weekend bash at my friend's house. I also finally saw Fahrenheit 9/11 last night and was pleasantly surprised.
( Idiocy in all its gloryCollapse )
Okay, so with Fahrenheit 9/11 I wasn't expecting to find out much more than what I already know since I'm a political news junkie and leave, eat and breathe the stuff. I was expecting Moore to do a wonderful job of alienating liberals and conservatives alike, because he did just that with Bowling for Columbine. I can be as liberal as they get, but there were plenty of things I disagreed with on BfC that turned me off and just helped fan the Republican fires.
Surprisingly, though, Moore has tempered down some and if you have the same complaints about BfC that I did, go and see 9/11 anyways because you'll probably enjoy this a lot better. As he rightfully should, he gave this movie the seriousness and care that it needed given the subject matter, without giving Bush or his Saudi blood for oil information any slack. It had its funny moments, but the vast majority of it was upsetting and it just confirmed what I already knew with the monetary connection the Bush's will always have with the Saudis.
The information he gave really isn't that biased at all. I've heard exactly what he was telling the audience, especially about kicking black voters off the voting list by labeling them as felons even though they had no such past solely to gain a precious swing state, over and over again before and had it confirmed by many. I went into it ready to be hyper critical of Moore for giving liberals a bad name, but I think he learned his lesson from BfC.
