Today Obama told America that he'd watched a documentary on U-TUBE made by a high school teacher, and how compelling the "witnesses" were. (Note: That's a word borrowed from Warren Beatty's film "REDS" where oldtimers who'd witnessed John Reed were filmed talking about him and Louise. In this case, the teacher's students were telling about being evicted, foreclosed, not having food. It was a school on the wrong side of town and a dozen of them had horror stories and wept as they told them. Well someone showed it to president Obama and he brought it up at his Town Hall in California.
So I turned off TV, I opened the newspaper and saw that Ahnold, our GOVERNANATOR wants to close down the TENT CITIES in Sacramento. Something clicked in my mind. I put the two stories together and thought, hey, why not U-TUBE up Ahnold's NOSE. Surely some WANNA BE FILMMAKER could rent a digital video camera, go down to the tent city and shoot a documentary. And probably get all kinds of TV distribution. Cable channels. News channels.
So I ran to CRAIGS LIST and put an ad up in Sacramento for TALENT section, GROUP section and ARTISTS' section. Craigs List requires that you change the order of the words each time as no duplicates of the text are allowed. Usually a new sentence at the top puts off the robots and spiders. I had the text saved, so simply cut and pasted it in to Craigs page with a new sentence at top each time.. I'm an old hand at that. I can do forty ads in four hours if I want. So more or less finished ad read:
" JOIN THE FILMMAKER's CO-OP. We want writers, actors, gaffers, VIDEO DP's... and this is a movie that has to be made. THE GOVERNATOR is evicting all those homeless families from Sacramento's TENT CITY! HEARTLESS!

THEN YOU HAVE a fab credit. Can get a grant to any film school. So let's do this documentary on these families before they disperse. They are foreclosed families, not NAM VETS or bagladies! KIDS are along. Pulled from schools! Here is news story "The Governor (TERMINATOR) unveiled plans on Thursday 18th March to shut down this sprawling blemish on the face of Sacramento, a "tent city" fer gawdsakes --of legitimate homeless not bagladies, one which has drawn worldwide media attention as a symbol of U.S. economic decline. Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson promised to first make alternative shelter space available for the estimated 150 men, women and children who inhabit the squalid encampment near the American River, at the edge of the city's downtown. WELL LET US SEE IF HE DOES. THIS IS LIKE "ROGER AND ME" on the ground floor, (MICHAEL MOORE's first flick) Mayor Johnson toured the area with California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger on SAINT PADDIES' DAY, said he hoped to have the ramshackle settlement cleared of tents and debris in the next two to three weeks. "We want to move as quickly as we can," he told a news conference, insisting the city was determined to treat the tent dwellers with compassion. YEAH RIGHT! MOTEL ROOMS for a week? Then what? JAIL? "They are people out there. We have to do whatever we can do," he said. "We as a city are not going to shy away from it. We're going to tackle it head-on." Advocates for the homeless applauded the mayor's action. Municipal authorities in Sacramento have been debating the fate of the tent city for weeks. Sacramento has one of the highest mortgage foreclosure rates in the United States, and the homeless total in the city and surrounding county is estimated to have jumped nearly 10 percent last year to nearly 2,700. About half are believed to be living outdoors, according to a local survey.

I recommend a documentary which you can watch online. PINK SARIS. About a MOVEMENT IN INDIA started by a real bulldog of a Hindu woman -- a self styled vigilante busting all those real crummy HINDU men who beat wives, let sick infants die, kill infant girls and all the father in laws who BOP THE BRIDE! Big thing in INDIA among untouchable caste! Bulldog also busts mother in laws who use the bride as a house slave. The bulldog works herself up into a lather, take the bus to their village, the weeping bride in tow...and makes threats to throw the entire family in jail if the bride ever complains ever again. The westernized brides in a way bring it on themselves refusing to do ALL the chores. The father in laws all look way better than the grooms, have no idea why the girls get bugged at grandpa rape. So foreign cultures offer weird variations on oddball spiritual compassion movements and liberator saints & martyrs and film. This pink sari doc is all the above. BUT... the boss lady has her dark side being oh so greedy for donations, more real estate (for the brides to live in when they can't handle the in laws) and fuming that her younger, prettier hubby do his P.R. releases more regularly so that she can get in the papers. REALITY TV at its best and kind of hilarious to watch.
Then there's the Documentary on Indonesian Death squads Told the story of USA/ CIA killing several million INDONESIAN LEFTISTS with the help of Obama's mother (she worked for Rand Think Tank there,) a documentary so good that WERNER HERZOG saw a rough cut and BOUGHT IT to distribute, giving the director a big leg up into the industry.
LAST, do A DOCUMENTARY on the U.S. ARMY building concentration camps in every big city of America. THEY CUT ONE INTO THE MIDDLE OF LOS ANGELES, At intersection of 101 and 405, our 2 main freeways. They took out/ bulldozed a HUGE LAKE, PARK. ANIMALS, FISH, ERASED IT ALL. ARMY HUMMERS STILL THERE.
THE SEPULVEDA BASIN. Said the 80 acres had heroin needles under the forest,woods, bushes, meadows. That was their excuse.
