Looks about right to me :|
I like the imagery--especially the blank space, it's way more thought provoking than if everything were drawn in.

:lol: c'mon, it's not his fault, he's cool :peace: it's his 'absence' :invisible: nut history tells things are always much easier for (dump) conservative berzerks, because they don't have to fear to be criticised to be too liberal, or even left wing ... but being black & president is definitely worst case, from over here it looks like people expecting him to make excuses for his presidency everytime before he speaks up :giggle:

It's not easy being e democrat, when all they have to do is use the word "liberal" to put you on the defensive. In the US, that word has approximately the same negative connotations as the word "witch" did in Medieval Europe D:

... the problem is, if the words democrat, liberal & social just have a little negative connotation, this society just doesn't deserve the word democracy - it's lacking education to tolerance & debating culture & mostly forgotten :pointr: respect for the enemy :peace: in the US (like in China and other more suppressive systems) education is similar to that of Europe in the 19th century (that led to two world wars finally) = children are generally declared 'stupid', and there is just one way to 'grow up' the 'right way' (can also be read literally) = being obedient & supporting the system without any criticism, like Bush put it, if they don't support us, they're against us ... :ohmygod: that's institutionalized stupidity on the level of religious fundamentalism, and inevitably leads to suppression and violence, being televised world wide :|

It's true, tolerance and openmindedness are not usually the result of blind obedience and black-and-white thinking. I guess it's a fundamental flaw of most education systems that they don't really measure or teach children's capacity for independent, critical thought, but rather just basic facts and skills.

It's a sad thing because the ability to see another's point of view, and the understanding that there's not always a "right" and a "wrong" side would probably help a lot more people (in both big global conflicts and small day-to-day problems), than, say, vector calculus. And said abilities are cultivated in a culture of mutual understanding, tolerance and debate.

... teaching children's capacity for independent, critical thought is standard (!) all over western Europe & lots other former European colonies all around the globe - since the early 70s = for four decades now ... same with art education, US dominated dA mirrors the problem, the difference between obedient deviant-'art' (see main gallery), and real life art [link] - it's all a matter of education ... obedience vs. open mindness & freedom of expression ;-)

I think it's an expression of oversensitivity. Oversensitivity is a byproduct(or part of?) of American culture. It's there not just in art (and the "need" to censor it or control it's contents, to protect people from seeing something that might shock or offend), but in many other facets of life. Take for example how overly sensitive people are about racial issues, or about nudity, or even children's safety and upbringing.

I'm from Holland, but as a small child (3-6) I lived in the US, and I was amazed by the sheer volume of BS safety regulations a kid gets drilled into him. I think no other culture is as overprotective of it's children as the American culture, and I think maybe this constant stream of warnings and safety measures and parental control might cause Americans to grow up to become a lot more anxious and oversensitive themselves.
