MLK Jr. DAY: Raising Arizona

Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Hope all is well with you and yours.

I know I posted it a while back in the Gunday Monday post...but this holiday, along with the absurdity that is still being perpetuated through the framework of this body called America, beckons a repeat showing.

On the quick, overtly political, not-so-positive vibe, I'd like to give a special FUCK YOU shout out to Senator John McCain and former Arizona Governors Evan Mecham and Fife Symington III for their long-time opposition to the observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day as a holiday.  It took Arizona (and New Hampshire) about 9 years to get it through their thick skulls.  No applause needed...

Now watch.

Kids, I'm sad to say that most of your beloved gun-wielding Hip Hop DVD heroes wouldn't dare make a video this tough and confrontational. For some, it would be for fear of industry/media backlash...for most, it would be more about a general lack of intelligence to conjure up anything that isn't downright insulting to human senses.
