Google has apparently got a phrase that they say reflects something about the company: Don't be evil.

Google owns Blogger, where I write this. They own YouTube. They own Gmail, Google Earth, and of course, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir which they purchased in a leveraged buy out involving Yoko Ono, Michael Jackson, Queen Beatrix and the Church of Scientology.

But there are alternatives. There's Mapquest, and Riseup email and the New Tabernacle Singers...and Vimeo.

Vimeo is the YouTube alternative. Here's an example of the stuff there, and while this is not professionally done, the woman's logic is spot on. She observes that the worser evil we are supposed to not vote for is seldom as horrible as the lesser evil, and the differences between lesser and greater evils is so small...

But to me the perfect line was where she said "What they say when they run for office is pretty different, but what they do when they get there really isn't."

The video is by Rachel MacCratic. Take a look:
