Steven Spielberg recently stepped down as artistic adviser to Beijing for the upcoming Olympics, citing opposition to China's support for the Sudanese government. Apparently the Chinese are buying oil from, and selling arms to, despots...

Quick, someone tell Spielberg that the U.S. buys oil from despots, is the largest supplier of armaments in the world, and that our tax dollars support this. Then perhaps he'll punish us by refraining from making any further Star Wars prequels or sequels!!
