She's got the biggest balls of them all

A woman from a local publication approached me Saturday at an art show and told me she wanted to do a story about me and my art in the local publication she works for.  She said that if I was interested that I should send her an 800 to 1200 word article about myself and submit 10 photos of my work.  I told her I’d think about it.  

After I thought it over for a bit I sent her this email: 

“I thought about it and I thank you for thinking of me. If I get paid to write the article then I’ll be happy to do it, otherwise, no thanks. I’m sure you understand that some of us don’t want to produce work for any corporation for free.”
I’m eagerly awaiting her reply.  But seriously, if I’m going to do your job for you, I sure as hell want to be paid.

Sorry for the light posting lately

I've been kind of busy making art, doing an art and craft show, and generally living life.  I wish I could say I'll be more diligent about posting, but I can't, so there.

Sorry to have missed you

This artist wasn't participating in the handmade art show we went to the other day.  I wish they had been, I liked their work and wanted to see more of it.  Oh well.  Like the Stones said, you can't always get what you want.

Anyway, I'm still fixated on birds in my art right now.  So I go get back to work.

Formula for success

Okay imagine this, you take all those people who voted Hillary, all the Sanders supporters, the ten million people who didn't vote this time around but who voted for in 2008, and you give them a progressive candidate who speaks to them as an equal, who doesn't condescend to them, who goes to states outside the 'swing' states, who listens to working people, someone who isn't in the Davos neo liberal jet set. And you know what you've got there? A winning Democrat.

It's not here yet, that's why we're saddled with Trump


Rest in peace Leonard Cohen.

This kind of elitist attitude is absolutely one of the reasons why Hillary lost


I dropped two 'friends' who posted this image on Facebook.  

This kind of shit is exactly why Hillary lost and the Democrats failed to win back the Senate.  They wrote off the entire interior of this country and stuck their elitist noses in the air while they lectured us time and again about the benefits of globalization while hanging out with their celebrity pals. 

I know the DNC won't ever learn because they repeatedly write off working class voters.  They rigged the primaries against one of the few populist pols left in the Democratic party because they decided it was a woman's turn to be POTUS.  And look how that worked out for them.

I could not have said it better myself

"But the Democratic Party won’t learn from these mistakes. Rather, they will blame everyone but themselves. Green Party candidate Jill Stein will be a likely scapegoat, despite the fact that if all of the votes for Stein went to Hillary Clinton, Clinton still would have lost the election just as badly."

The most loyal Clinton supporters will predictably attack Sanders and his supporters for Clinton’s loss. They will do so without acknowledging that Clinton did nothing to extend an olive branch to Sanders supporters. Tim Kaine was the exact opposite of a progressive, and Clinton immediately hired Debbie Wasserman Schultz after she resigned in disgrace from her position as DNC chair after WikiLeaks revealed she helped Clinton cheat in the Democratic primaries."

Barbara Jo Summers

I love finding pictures of beautiful women in mid century college yearbooks.  I have no idea if this beauty is still alive or not, but damn, back in 1970, she was off the charts gorgeous.

What are you going to do after the election?

"I'm moving into the White House if Trump wins.  I'm Melania's mother."

"I'll be fondling my guns while cowering in my basement covered in tears and jizz."

"Two words, revenge porn."

"I'll be shouting at hussies and pansies so that they can see that Jesus loves them if only they'd stop behaving the way God made them."

"We'll be having threesomes and singing barbershop quartet, so it's pretty much business as usual for us."

"Spend some quality time with my vibrator."

"Carrying out Uncle Adolf's vision."

"Fuck off, that's what I'm doing.  Just you fuck right off right now."
"Pie.  I'll be eating pie.  And enjoying seeing a woman finally be a president elect."

You're so cute

The amount of liberals and Democratic party apologists who think Bernie Sanders will push Hillary into adopting a progressive agenda after she's elected is astounding.  They're also cute and precious as the naive Constitution loving teabaggers who thought they were going to get Buffoon Trump elected.
