On The Brink - Vote YES on Measures 66 and 67

for balance: A "Vote Yes" ad.

The unbearable whiteness of this video can be chalked up, prolly, to the unbearable whiteness of Oregon....But, there're still a lotta assumptions going on when the message "keep our state functioning" is delivered as "keep heterosexual, suburban families snuggling with each other on forest paths."

It's Your Ox They'll gore

Nice anti-tax mashup work here, between 4-tracked Ovation acoustic gtr and an "anti-tax" statement by President Obama.

What fascinates me is how the "vote no" folks wanna use Obama's admonition about taxes to aid their cause, but how they (and their base) hate Obama so much that they cannot help but resort to weird racialized gags around the use of his image within the video portion.

Oh well, I can imagine talk radio fans cueing this thing up during Hannity commerical breaks.

Please Remit

Not only are public employees overpaid liabilities upon the benighted taxpayer... they are also effeminate and pedantic!
