Veteran's Day 2004
It is a day of sadness and honor. Sadness that my government has mired us in an illegal war in Iraq. War is filthy, and dirtier still is a government that uses citizens in a war they hide under a disguise so you are disconnected from the ravages and deaths. Fascists do whatever and do not own their directives, and certainly do not want you to know what is really occuring in your name. Who is the terrorist?
And today is a day of honor. A day to honor those brave men and women who put their lives on the line, those in our history who fought to give us our freedom and those who fight right now, today, in a war the President of the United States, George W. Bush, should be ashamed of.
I cried this morning when the letters of some of the soldiers were read. Please stop the war!
I am ashamed and terrified of every single person that voted for Bush. You voted for blood. I hate you.

Open Wide

My brother says there are committees or think tanks that advise the government and corporations on how far they can push the American citizens before they revolt. If they push too hard or too fast and the people make noise that they crank it down a notch. And if they heard too much noise and their agenda is important to them they just add the fear factor.
We all need to make more noise and especially learn the word BOYCOTT. Say that gas prices rise sharply as they did here a few weeks ago. Then you boycott. Shout out that the price is too high and band together and don't go to work. Capitalists don't hear you unless you hurt their profit margins. Then they come to their senses really fast.
We need voices and unity. That is a way to stop unprovoked wars or any of the other
government/corporation nonsense.
Get Loud.

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
