Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters,since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving. – Colossians 3:23-24, NIV On one level, this is a damning critique of critiquing culture • Read More »

Hispanic outreach. You’re doing it wrong. A Democratic candidate for Arizona governor released a photograph of himself with his face digitally darkened so that he would look more Hispanic. The candidate, Phoenix businessman Fred DuVal said he wanted show Republicans he is a “good sport,” reports the Arizona Daily Independent. DuVal’s stunt was a response • Read More »

The sequester is a week old now. Here’s a photo of what these horrific cuts in government spending have done my neighborhood.     And for comparison, here’s a photo of what my neighborhood looked like BEFORE the sequester.  Man, I gotta find a new place to live…

Maybe Obama is right, maybe we DO need a lot more teachers. Either than, or Joe Biden’s stupidity is rubbing off on people.  Nope, not a Photoshop. And remember, these are the people who think that George Bush was a moron. 

Obama’s talking about binders, Biden is talking about staplers

Because what matters to American voters this year isn’t the economy or jobs or the war on terror, it’s office supplies. Obama seized on Romney’s now meme-ified claim that, in his quest to find female cabinet members in Massachusetts, he picked from “binders full of women” provided to him by outside organizations. “I’ve got to tell you, • Read More »

Designer and entrepreneur Liu Mingjie wears his “Oba Mao” t-shirt in which he superimposed the face of President Barack Obama over that of China’s late revolutionary leader Mao Zedong for sale at his shop in the tourist Houhai district of Beijing.

Art is whatever the government censors

The popular online photo-hosting sevice Flickr has pulled all the Obama–Joker images from their creator’s photostream, citing “copyright concerns”. And massive tax audit concerns. That too. They’ve also pulled another account for the heinous sin of criticizing our current President’s position on releasing photos of war prisoners. Hope. Change. Government censorship. I say again to • Read More »

“The creator’s concern is the conquest of nature. The parasite’s concern is the conquest of men.” – Ayn Rand I am not a big Rand fan: I find her work too self-centered and devoid of human emotion for my tastes, although I do understand and sympathize with many of her goals. But she’s spot-on with • Read More »

Mama, they took my Kodachrome away

Fortune magazine marks the passing of this iconic film with a retrospective of 60 years of photos from its archives. Never did like that Paul Simon song that much, but it seemed appropriate here. I shot a lot of Kodachrome as a kid on photo-trips alongside my Dad as we followed the CP through the • Read More »

While Patrick Fitzgerald was busy overthrowing the government of Illinois, I’ve been in D.C. for meetings. A few highlights: No, my meetings weren’t at the White House and with Congress. Believe it or not, the leaders of this country think they can get along without my help. Go figure.
