Daily Show: Warren Buffett's Class Warfare

Warren Buffett's op-ed is a thoughtful treatise on the
advantages the super-wealthy currently enjoy at the
hands of the tax code, or to put it another way, "class
warfare."

Eddy Grant and Kurt Darren - Gimme Hope Jo'anna

The musical struggle against apartheid came from outside
South Africa's borders as well as within. In 1988
Guyanese-born British performer Eddy Grant released
Gimme Hope Jo'anna, with its hybrid African-reggae
rhythms and sharp anti-apartheid lyrics. It reached the
top ten in several European countries, though it was
naturally banned from airplay and official release in
South Africa. This version is from a live performance at
Nelson Mandela's 90th birthday concert in Hyde Park,
London in 2008, and features Afrikaans pop artist Kurt
Darren. Uploaded by musicinhistory.

Amigo: Movie Trailer

AMIGO, the 17th feature film from Academy Award-
nominated writer-director John Sayles, stars legendary
Filipino actor Joel Torre as Rafael, a village mayor
caught in the murderous crossfire of the Philippine-
American War. When U.S. troops occupy his village,
Rafael comes under pressure from a tough-as-nails
officer (Chris Cooper) to help the Americans in their
hunt for Filipino guerilla fighters. But Rafael's
brother (Ronnie Lazaro) is the head of the local
guerillas, and considers anyone who cooperates with the
Americans to be a traitor. Rafael quickly finds himself
forced to make the impossible, potentially deadly
decisions faced by ordinary civilians in an occupied
country. A powerful drama of friendship, betrayal,
romance and heartbreaking violence, AMIGO is a page torn
from the untold history of the Philippines, and a mirror
of today's unresolvable conflicts. Uploaded by movieclipsTRAILERS.
