OK. I love: Leo DiCaprio -- yes, I do -- and Jennifer Aniston, and Forest Whitaker, and Natalie Portman (sigh), and Sarah Silverman, and Dustin Hoffman. I love Dustin Hoffman a lot. Why do I love these people? Because they know what it means to be a true patriot. I'll break my own rules here, just this once, and embed a video that has some NSFW language. I'd normally just link to it, but yeah, this is that good, and it's that important. Man, I love me some Dustin. He's awesome. Watch this to the end, folks. Then do what they say.

Edited to add: Apparently there are a few versions of this video floating around out there. As far as I can tell, this is the correct one, pointing to Declare Yourself. I changed this from a different version.
