Truth Through Art

From CBS Las Vegas, of all places:

In front of the White House a man is sitting on a park bench in the throes of depression. He is surrounded by all 43 presidents. In the forefront, purposefully ignoring the depressed man is President Obama, whose right foot is stepping on the Constitution. James Madison is next to Obama, pleading with him to stop.

This tableau is called “The Forgotten Man”, a painting by Jon McNaughton, an artist who is known for his politically-charged work.

Three cheers for artist Jon McNaughton. Congratulations to CBS Las Vegas.

An even more accurate depiction would be 0ur Dear Leader & his fellow Banksta-bought buddy Bush wiping their rear ends on pieces of the Constitution they both ripped up.
Socialistic altruism is destroying America.
When a President resolves to do whatever it takes to fix the economy, then keeps "fixing" it with the very things that are ruining it, the only logical conclusion a sane person can draw is the willful, deliberate subordination of all to an authoritarian dictatorship is underway.
My title to the above work would be "Prelude To Subjugation".
