It is a sad day indeed when a purveyor of pornography seems to be one of the guys who truly gets it. Say what you want about Larry and his smut-pedaling, but I've always had a soft spot for the guy because of his activism. How many others would have gone through what he's gone through to protect your constitutional freedoms from being infringed upon by the dogooders of this world with their censorship stickers, hoping to control what you see and hear... and think?
And, true to form, he is once again speaking the truth as only Larry Flint can about the current sorry state of affairs and trying to do something about it.

Both Democrats and Republicans dance to the tune of their corporate masters. In America, corporations do not control the government. In America, corporations are the government.
This was never more obvious than with the Wall Street bailout, whereby the very corporations that caused the collapse of our economy were rewarded with taxpayer dollars. So arrogant, so smug were they that, without a moment's hesitation, they took our money -- yours and mine -- to pay their executives multimillion-dollar bonuses, something they continue doing to this very day. They have no shame. They don't care what you and I think about them. Henry Kissinger refers to us as 'useless eaters'..."
