this piece was inspired by a couple of things.
first, it's obvious that there is something going on in this country. people have long since picked sides and many will do anything to demonize and smear the other. as of right now our side is unable to beat the powers that be with force. our side is simply out maned and out gunned. however, we have a weapon that is better that guns. we have the internet and we have video cameras. exposing these corrupt officials and holding them accountable in front of the entire country via sites like youtube is the one thing they probably fear most...and it's working. which would explain the recent push to regulate the internet.
second, the phrase "this machine kills fascist" comes from one of america's greatest song writers, woody guthrie. he traveled around this country during the great depression writing songs that would become american classics. he is well known to have popularized the phrase during this time due to the fact that the phrase was often painted on his guitar.

so, while thinking of the current state of this country and listening to mr. guthrie i was inspired and came up with this.
enjoy...or not. whatever....
oh, btw...you'll be able to get this on a shirt soon over at my zazzle store.
