MAn , This is pretty funny. Here in australia, there was a rush of cartoonists in papers doing george bush with a pinnoccio nose . As with our primeminister and britains. The so called weapons of mass destruction, and all the twisted truths that have been coming out. I really cant keep up with it, its not apathy its a low attention span.
As a died-in-the wool Republican I must say that some of the crap that our government has been doing as of late is scaring the crap out of me.
Watching Enemy at the Gates last night didn't help matters any...
apparently chuck d ran out on stage holding up these posters and someone frome p.e. came on stage wearing a george w. bush mask. then they launchend into their song "son of a bush." i missed the entire thing cause i was at my brother's wedding. i suck. pe#1
welll, friendly prodding looks to be the least of your problems right now pal. Sounds like you're also talking about hijacking a plane there. Sounds like somebody's a terrorist. And bombs...gentle folk don't talk like that in post 9/11 America. Adolph Bush is gonna be pssed at you and call Homeland Security down on your ass.
I sent you a PM earlier and you still aint answered. Perhaps youd respond if I jumped a plane to S.F., rolled by your crip with a hammer and beat out the message on your knuckles in MORSE CODE?
I have a guest over right now from Sweden. He likes Sweden but thinks America has so much more to offer. It might be a ruling place to retire however. Very clean place. Not even cigarette butts in the gutter. Social medicine. Big bunned chiklits.
also a flat tax rate. 10% across the board. White collar crime punishable by death.
Politicians are NOT allowed to accept any private donations. Instead if they get enough signatures they have access to a federally funded media pool with equal air and press time for all.
Drugs and prostitution should be lkegalized and heavily taxed.
Expand the death penalty to include rape and child abuse.
Higher education federally funded based on test scores only.
Heh..my politics are conservative, not reactionary. I believe in unlimited social freedom but extreme fiscal and civic responsibility. Like pro-abortion, pro-gay ,pro-gun,pro death penalty, pro-abortion, pro-environment, anti-welfare.
whats that make me?
This homeless dude came into the shop yesterday. He'd be as good a president as anyone else.
With the right harem...oops I meant staff...I'd be a pretty bitchin president. Free Beer for Minors in 2004. That's my platform.
I just read a couple of books about the Armada. Failed due to a combo of poor logistics with food and unusually bad weather.
Fascinting actually. Did you know that Cervantes( he wrote Don Quixote) was one of the Court-appointed 'food procurers' for the Armada?.
It's fitting actually. Poor Ol W.
must be hard to be a sock puppet.
At least he has a hot wife. I bet Laura rages in the sack.
Cool thing about W is he has a Warhol Mao print in his house. Saw it in some story about the 'ranch'.
I also like the shots of him in college with the beer blaster ...heh.
u dont care if they blow up england? thanks a bunch art! u know the amount of news we've had and the endless tv programmes re-running the attack on the trade centre was proof that we haven't learned a thing, 3000 people died in the attack, thats how many people die in africa EVERY DAY because of poverty, and why is there so much poverty? because there is so much greed. you wanna know why people hate americans so much? is not that difficult art, don't take it personally, i never make sweeping statements and i don't hate all americans. haven't we come a long way.
TRUE arrogance is a stance like yours. I was BORN here so I can lap up all the benefits without any payback and then bite the hand that feeds me because some EVIL PEOPLE fought a war of rebellion 220 years ago and wrote that down on a piece of paper.
i get pretty sick of all those dumbshit that refuse to examine what our leadership is doing and HAS DONE YP US. i grew up during a time when those very fuckers running our country right now were trying to KIL people like me (and us). that time is quickly approaching again.
i say no, and i want those fucker to stop it. i don't give a good goddam if saddam blows up israel, or arabia, or england. if nobody is willing to call a spade a spade, we've gat a great 'i told you so,' but if we're just trying to avenge the manhood of george sr. here, i think there is a big problem. if we're trying to make the oil companies richer we've an even bigger problem.
we've really got to stop being such whores and think about what we're doing when we sell our industries and copyrights and technology to our competition. we are fools and it will be our undoing.
we MADE iraq what it is. cheney's company BUILT UP their oil industry. now he wants it for himself? what?
this is prety fucked up and we need to think pretty hard.
We enjoy the benefits of a society founded on sacrifice. To enjoy those benefits without paying makes you a freeloader.
Me, I'm PROUD to have done my 'civic duty'. Because now if I WANT to bitch I'm allowed to cause I paid the price for 4 years.
I earned my Citizenship.
I garee with not liking some of the 'ideas' being floated right now. But, they need to do something. Unfortunately they won't take the 'hard road' as they should.
so our 'niceness' actualy creates the problem.
all i know is that i live in a country where i can say and do as i please (within some widely agreed-upon guidelines) and i fully support sarge's right to make an idiot of himself. however, i think the right wing in this country is pretty fucked up and they're leading us down a very nasty dark path that has the very big potential to take away the basic rights i take fro granted.
i disagree and will do anything within my constitutionally approved legal powers to stop them. if it means campaigning and voting against them, so be it. if it means speaking my mind, well, that's never been a problem for me.
if you don't like it, say so.
love it or leave it, motherfucker.
All I'm saying is that you enjoy the benefits of a society which is like protecting you from REAL psychos.
Mainstream Suadi press claims Jews use human blood in holiday food.
on a daily basis.
Thay hate YOU, personally.
when i was coming up, it was a dangerous world, and you knew exactly who they were. it was Us vs Them, and it was clear who "them" was. today, we are not so sure who "they" are, but we know they're there.
that may be just about the most over=the-top idiotic piece of kneejerk drivel i've ever heard you spew. and i've heard you spew some real crap. that one takes the cake.
how do you expect anybody to take you seriously when yer spitting up rucbbish like that?
even the fucking krauts think he's just like ol' adolf.
no thanks. i'm eager to vote the bastard out. i really don't care who runs against him so long as he's a good ol' corrupt dempocrat.
hell, i'd even vote for teddy kennedy or mistress hillary over an and endless problem like him. what a sack of shit!
Frank,you know....youre right. Ive been complaining about the wanton waste of pineapples in Tahiti.
Im gonna go over there and do something about it.
After that, Ill hit Paris...and solve that 'waste of pastries' problem...
nah i haven't been taking too many hits lately, only on the moon landing (where were u for that one?!) i was just checkin cos i wasn't sure what u meant. by the way richie, its charlie chaplin, don't u like, know anything?
It boils down to this. If you are not a felon as a US citizen you can get a passport and leave. You can go live in and help a place we are oppressing. You can ACTIVELY do something. If you are not happy here or with our deal go help change it. Many do. It's called the PEACE CORPS.
give it a shot. If your not willing to shut the fuck up.
Dudes..I been to those places. They are fucked. The state uses every means to create an enemy possible to keep the populace down.
Here we got Sports and TV to do the job.
Like I said Im an isolationaist..I say we nationailze energy make gas 20 bucks a gallon and get the fuck out of everywhere.
but it will never happen.
in the meanwhile I'm hangin over here.
You don't like it pick up arms or a ballot and change things.
cheers man, i'm still trying to figure out wether there was a hint of sarcasm in "right,harry"; if there was then heres a quick disclaimer to ease my paranoia that has been installed into me via the media(wink) if u weren't then consider what i'm about to say as stating the obvious: i was agreeing with u when all it boils down to is greed, as a natural being, an animal, we aren't "supposed" to live in a certain way, we are here to discover things for ourselves, share knowledge and evolve unto a higher plain of perception and that sorta stuff, we haven't evolved enough yet to realise that we don't need to be told how to live by other persons who we will never meet, its mind control from a safe distance. so all i'm saying is that greed is an evil thing when its taken to the point of trying to control the world, the selling out reference to greed is basically the same thing on a slightly lower "less important" level, but the same thing is the same thing; we should not be allowed any more than ummm 10 million quid each,hows that? is that fair? 20 million then? um okay then, 50.
The interesting thing is this need for the country to be at war with an "enemy". The similarities to Orwell's 1984 are pretty amusing. John Ashcroft could do a nice job in a remake movie.
I think the success of large corporations and the political system lies in the ability to marginalize thoughts and arguments about issues into very, very simple "us vs. them " bullshit.
W's party is as far from Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt's as Clinton's was from FDR's.
If we are going to "take out" Saddam, what about Syria, Libya, Sudan etc- this is, as usual, a huge distraction from domestic shit.
On a side note, I think a Pancho Villa 'stache would also be very nice.
Frank, its all relative:
to them, the capitalist iron fist stroking the citizens with promises of wealth and security is just as vile.
But you dont feel its that way over here.
They dont feel 'repressive theocracy' over there.
dude, the situation we're seeing now is because the world sees us arrogant. we've pushed ourselves in to the world's homes thanks and we're no longer welcome. people around the world are getting tired of it. and between bush's totally ingnorant (he once the president of brazil if they 'had blacks here, too?' ) cowboy rhetoric and cheney and crew foaming at the mouth for a global 'pax americana', it's getting worse.
repressive theocracy that feed lies to the populace via state controlled media is 'not moral'.
Thats the situation in Saudi A, Egypt, Syria, Jordan, Iraq, Iran, Indonesia etc.
NO 'free press'. NON elected governments etc.
Me, I'm FUCKING STOKED to be a 'Roman Citizen.'
The idea that the 'enemy' is EVIL- Ruthless cold animals...it's like exactly what they think about Americans.
Human government does not work...but you cant have anarchy...because that wont work. Personally, here is where my spiritual hopes and beliefs enter into the picture.
But thats something else altogether different.
I wonder if PE is coming to Houston?
Im not taking sides in political debates, because its pointless. The 'x-factor' here are imperfect, greedy men. THAT is the problem.
Man has demonstrated that he is not equipped to successfully govern himself.
"Thats the sad fact. While 'we' may have like 'good ideals' they DONT"
Thats such a 'citizen of the superpower' thing to say.
Roman citizens said the same thing about Jews when they razed Jerusalem in 70CE.
Babylonian citizens said the same thing about Assyrians when they destroyed that empire in the 700's BC.
Assyrians and Egyptians said that about EVERYONE who wasnt Assyrian and Egyptian.
Like, who decides what 'morals' are? Does 'suicide bombing' mean that they have no 'morals'?
well, we 'tried' to do it right for 8 years to no good effect. The disaster right now is because the 'world' saw us as 'weak'.
Thats the sad fact. While 'we' may have like 'good ideals' they DONT..in fact, the countries that bitch the most have brutal 'governments' that ARE truly Fascistic and despotic in nature.
me, I say fuck them all and like just stay home and solve OUR dilemmas.
But, our economy is HOOKED like a junkie on international business.
Pulling out of other lands financially and militarily would create a massive worldwide collapse. Billions would suffer.
lesser of 2 evils.
it's the foreign policy that scares me so much. and i know that it's not a partisan issue. there are international laws being blantantly broken, and our govenment is setting a precedent, that if the rest of the world decides to allow, will bring certain disaster.
"There's an old saying in Tennessee I know it's in Texas probably in Tennessee that says 'fool me once... shame on... shame on you... uh foomee uh can't get fooled again.'
-our president, george bush, jr...
it's all about outmoded Cold War oil policy, which by the way is designed to protect EUROPEAN oil interests not ours. We are 'honoring our agreements with Europe here.
France is the LARGEST importer of Iraqi oil.
i'm happy it's not gore, either. but, really...there's SO many people to blame besides gore, clinton and albright..including bush sr. it's already been acknowledged that this is part of a much bigger plan which has nothing to do with hussein. but i'm not getting into this today. too nice outside to argue about politics. i love this poster.
If Gore had won, perhaps you would have the joy of subjecting all your poster designs to the scrutiny of Tipper Gore's office of National Music Censorship.
that would be so much fun wouldn't it?
Republicans won the Civil War for the North and Freed the slaevs.
Republicans destroyed Black Neighborhoods and built Public Housing.
In fact, I'd say MOST destructive and burdensome legislature is
the result of Democratic ideals, not Republican.
It's also interesting to note that 'Republican' ideals actually support people like you. Republicans ENCOURAGE 'small business' and lenient taxes on said small businesses. Democrats always seek to impose Government guidelines and lots of taxes on your business...so they can take your money and like spend it on misguided social programs. I have lived and done business in both denocratic controlled states and Republican ones, so I know.
Democratic states have much higher taxes, many more 'laws' and crappy infrastructurs. Republican ones are much 'kinder'.
Also, on a persinal level..I have NEVER ONCE been 'harrassed or censored' by the 'right'..but have been actively harrassed and censored by the 'left' many, many times.
Georgie Porgie puddin n pie
won the election and made you all cry.
Me, I'm happy that it 's not Al 'Da Barog' Gore....can you imagine what a shitfist we'd be in?
Him n Bill's foreign policy under that nutjob Albright got us in this here current predicament.
I also LOVE W cause he like has basically destroyed the Washington
'social scene'..like no parties no bs at teh White Haus. heh.
Maybe all you guys can get Hillary elected next and then you'll REALLY have an intrusive 'here's what's good for you'
I'd like to know if the new 'Homeland' defensive bullshit had actually affected you personally in a negative way.
they're hitting northampton in the next couple of days. i'm tempted to go, though i fear i will be a flakey skinny white dude set adrift in a sea of other flakey skinny white dudes and the whole experience will be ruined.
actually, they're just playing a venue with an absolute shit sound system, so i figure it'll suck.
i think the last couple of albums have been strong & solid as motherfuck.
Excellent. I just forwarded this poster around to a bunch of people who are discussing the similarites of the German People under the Nazis (i.e. "How could they have let it happen?") and the American People under the current "Watch What You Say" administration... you know, the ones who are all chanting "LET'S ROLL!" (let's roll over)
oh, and I sent a copy to the Department Of Fatherland, er, i mean HOMELAND Security.
Awesome poster though! :)
