I’m not sleeping very well these days.
Yesterday there was a massacre in Mosul. The war began on October 7, 2001. It is now the waning days of 2004. Thousands of people have be killed or injured in a filthy, illegal war with my name, as an American citizen, on it. A war brought about by a supposedly Christian president, a president some of you actually voted for, reelected, to represent all of us. Drink the death blood.
Sometime last week I heard a man on a call-in show say he, as an economic student at a prestigious university, was quite pleased how George Jr has strengthened the economy, although maybe he didn’t agree totally with how George Jr. has gone about it (by waging war). Isn’t that a wonderful thought: we give lives for a better economy. If we could always be in war, hell, we could live like kings. Drink the death blood.
In the past two months over 23,000 criminals have tried to illegally enter the United States through the broken border we share with Mexico. George Jr. continues his pro-illegal chant “They do jobs Americans aren’t willing to do.” Right. Roofers. Driveway installers. Carpenters. Concrete delivers. Dental Assistants. Corporate data processors.
Landscapers. Semi drivers. Those are just some of the jobs Americans don’t want. Why would anyone believe a man who lied over and over during his first term and continues to do so during his second? Drink the death blood.

"Peace is an organic process. You need to actively keep working for it in order to keep it. Do it daily."

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
