Presidental Goofs
Reagan gave oodles and oodles of money to the rich and to corporations. He told the grimy masses-the middle class and the poor- don't worry, this is the trickle-down effect, soon you will get yours too. Some folks are STILL waiting for that trickle.
The WORST thing he did was, in a time of great greed and money, to no longer require an actual vegetable on school lunches. He declared ketchup a vegetable. Shame on him.
Clinton's flaw was his taste for homely women and for starting that open-door policy with Mexico. Come and get it.
Bush, the fake president that started a fake war, is scary.
And the main reason I won't vote for him is this: Any government that discourages open opinions and says that to say anything against the government's policy is unAmerican is unAmerican itself. That is how dictatorships are run. Now that is the most frightening goof of all.

the IRAQI 2003 war depicted in a painting-a-day

With our soldiers, men and women, off to fight for our freedom and the freedom of Iraq, I wanted to do more than attend a demonstration. (I did one last week in Chicago and we were circled by police in riot gear and moved, literally smashed like sardines and moved, to a different area to be controlled. It was very frightening, especially after the recent e2 incident where people were crushed in a crowd. ) I want to know why we are doing this, and to that end I have decided to put my efforts into my art. To paint something, anything, is to get to gain intimate knowledge of it.

I am a war zombie. I watch CNN, C-SPAN, FOX, and ABC. I am seeking answers.

I have no taste for blood. It seems to me that an intellectual resolution could have been possible. Squabbling over the fence and threatening to sue doesnâ??t seem to mean much when the other guy is blasting the Iraqi landscape off the map.

I am wishing peace.

P.S. If you would like to know how oil-well fires are put out, check out â??Hellfightersâ?� starring John Wayne playing Red Adair.

P.P.S. When the Afghanistan War happened I kept asking, â??Where is the war coverage?â?� I wonder why there was so much pomp and circumstance with this war? And is this war about terrorism? What did we do in Afghanistan besides blow it up? If you havenâ??t accomplished your first goal (martyring Osama bin Laden) why are we starting a new fight?

P.P.P.S Do you know that in 1991 in a war lead by Bush the Elder, we abandoned the people? And the people were starving, they looted the artifacts from the cradle of civilization, so they could survive. Wealthy people all over the world now have these priceless treasures in their possession. Hopefully they are caring for them so they can be restored to Iraq after this war establishes peace for these people. If you would like to know more about the artifacts, go HERE
