"All men are not created equal. It is the purpose of the Government to make them so." This is the premise of the Showtime film adaption of Kurt Vonnegut's futuristic short story Harrison Bergeron. The film centers around a young man (Harrison) who is smarter than his peers, and is not affected by the usual "Handicapping" which is used to train all Americans so everyone is of equal intelligence.

No. No way.
But Mr. President, the Premier is only asking for another 24 hours. He wants the approval of the Moroccan parliament. He fears a civil war if he acts without their backing.
Fuck 'em. I told them two weeks ago-if they didn't agree to dismantling that factory under our supervision-we'd bomb the shit out of it. They got one hour to agree-otherwise, bombs away.
