First of all, I just passed 6k followers and I’m floored. I am absolutely amazed that so many people find why I say interesting enough that they might wasn’t to here more.

Or the memes make you crack up.

Either way, I thank you all
Recently I posted a ridiculous painting of trump portrayed as a hero... I absolutely suggested that, by portraying him as a hero, the artist should bear some responsibility for inciting violence.

By this I did not mean legal responsibility, but rather a personal responsibility.
It probably will not surprise many of you, but I am an artist.

Art is definitely protected by the first amendment.

I have said
before that those with an audience and any influence bear some responsibility for what they put out. That’s the top of the info supply chain. If you use your influence to peddle disinformation /hate speech and incite violence, then the results are on you.
I hope this helps clarify my intent.

When I was a kid, the news, with the exception of the occasional fluff piece, was terribly boring.
Monotone anchors told the audience about the days events.

They reported facts with no spin on it.

I think news as infotainment
bears a large burden of blame for the great divide in our country.

trump rose to power, not because he was good at leading, but because he was so absurd that people “Howard Sterned” him.

Those who loved him wanted to see what he would do next.

People who hated him did the same
...for the same reason.

Every absurd statement, every scandal propelled him into the top stories of the day.

We need to make the news boring again. Fewer editorials and more facts.

Can we please have more outlets like NPR who don’t rely on partisan advertising for revenue?
As I stated that those with influence bear responsibility for what they post, you my friends, as the reader have a responsibility for what you read.

The sum of human knowledge fits in the palm of your hand now.

Information is powerful.
Disinformation is too.
You should watch what you eat.

Information is health food.

Infotainment is junk food, it’s fun, and sometimes it tastes great, but you should consume it in moderation.

Wear a mask. Be safe. Stay healthy and thanks for reading.

Now that trump has been impeached a second time, but McConnell has decided not to hear it until June(?) we need to move forward.

The Biden Administration (BA) is walking into a huge mess handicapped. With little aid in the transfer of power, BA has to...
... get a raging pandemic under control, reinstate environmental regulations to ensure that our children will have a planet to grow up on, and try to bring together a nation divided.

Many trump supporters will never leave his side, but many of them still fly the last symbol...
..of a wasted four years that costed 618,222 American lives.
So, do they really count? They definitely need to be monitored by law enforcement, but how much influence do they really have if they’re shouting to each other in a field.

The specter of the trump Administration...
