One of my biggest shortcomings as a political observer is my apathy towards and inability to understand a lot of economic matters. However, when the idea of minting a trillion dollar platinum coin straight out of a “Simpsons” episode was proposed as a way of dealing with the debt crisis I was instantly on board. Not only would it solve the problem it also would affirm my long held belief that money is essentially meaningless. Plus, the whole “it’s legal in that it’s not illegal” aspect of it just sounds like such a crazy scheme that I would love watching Republicans get blindsided by it. It’s like the 2008 election episode of “South Park” in that everything was just a dumb set-up.
But alas, according to the Treasury Department, it shall not be.
I need 1,000,000,000,000 coin coffins.

Like Inglourious Basterds it's a revenge fantasy but a great one.
It's very violent but honesty it could have been worse. Maybe I just really wanted to see white people get torn apart by whips.
Its story structure is a little meandering but it's so entertaining who cares?
It's probably the best movie I've seen this year.
As for the heavier stuff...
They say the N word a lot but come on, it's 1850s Mississippi. If you can handle "The Boondocks" you can handle this. Not everyone can though.
As for the other potential racial/sociological issues, there's a serious discussion to be had about how problematic they may be. Honestly though, it's provocative quality is appreciated and its heart is in the right place.
Plus it's just awesome.
