Work in progress. This will be a ZIA (Zentangle Inspired Art). I'm using Pitt artist's pens, M, F, SF & B, in black, on Strathmore 300 Mixed-media paper. This is a close-up shot of 8 1/2 x 5 1/2" size wirebound book.

Ever heard the phrase "setting the fox to guard the henhouse" (or something like that)? Here's a real-life example being played out in real time. Could our military strategists and political thinkers have even IMAGINED the current scenario a decade or so ago?! Usually we count on advisers, party politics, CONGRESS & THE SUPREME COURT to keep a president from mankind decisions which are not only astoundingly naive but downright dangerous to the continued existence of America (and Israel, and European democracies, and...). Today? I just want to know which direction the fan is pointing when the inevitable Scheisse hits it....
Under Obama’s proposed deal, Iran’s nuclear infrastructure would remain intact, with the centrifuges spinning.

One reason words are so powerful is that we can use them to disguise, dissemble, and yes, LIE.  However, I still find the attitude of universities which are so open-minded brains are falling out ( and I'm not talking zombies here!) repugnant.  I went to a Liberal Arts College/University.  Family members have gone to State universities such as UT, friends have gone to all sorts of colleges, universities, tech schools, online schools, etc.  Freedom is guaranteed by our constitution here in the good ol USA. However, it brings the responsibility of good judgment and sound ethics with it. Two of these three things are sadly lacking at many Universities & colleges these days. Veritas=Truth.

Excellent article, as always from Victor Davis Hanson.  Eye opening to some.  Familiar to others.  Don't bother calling me crazy, I already figured that out! ;)
From gay weddings to Iran’s muscle-flexing, PC enforcers have a big job.

As the saying goes, if you fail to learn from history (and such recent history, too!), you are doomed to repeat its mistakes. This article clearly shows where we're headed - World War III, I say.
Once again our leaders are needlessly appeasing a hostile state that shows them nothing but contempt.

"Jay Leno" and his "stupid people" questions had NOTHING on this video! I'm surprised there were "no's" at all! Ok, so, not really, but... even in the most liberal of communities, why would you SIGN your name to something without understanding EXACTLY what you're signing, why, and how it will affect you and others, directly or indirectly.  As the Professor once said to Peter and Susan, "What DO they teach them in these schools...?"  We're finding out... and it's scary!

Veritas=Truth. Sometimes it hurts, truth does.  But as the saying goes, it also sets you (us) free! Truth in an open society is essential to keeping that society from becoming smothered in lies, schemes, scams, plots and under-table politics.  Sometimes, those in power need to be reminded who they serve, and why...

Rick Perry!  He knows what the term "National Security" means, for Texas AND for our country!

When various departments of the gov't., and individuals with loyalties to specific people rather than the office held by those same people, fail to do their duty, fail to present the truth, and do everything possible to obfuscate Congress and justice itself (and I am NOT referring to the DOJ!!!), it's more than a scandal. It is TREASON. Impeach and prosecute all those who used positions of power - or perceived power- to hide the truth and lie to the public for the sake of a win on election day. Nothing less will save this country from our so-called leaders, who hold their oaths so lightly they think k nothing of lying under oath or hiding and destroying evidence of their failures!
