Just Look... by Techta Just Look... by Techta
Kind of a political cartoon about how the government is mangling the Constitution and the country. So this is Adams, TJ, (some guy who could be Hancock or Hamilton), and Washington watching the news.

I think this poem from Lord of the Rings might relate to the state that the US is in;
'Where now the horse and the rider? Where is the horn that was blowing?
Where is the helm and the hauberk, and the bright hair flowing?
Where is the hand on the harpstring, and the red fire glowing?
Where is the spring and the harvest and the tall corn growing?
They have passed like rain on the mountain, like a wind in the meadow;
The days have gone down in the West behind the hills into shadow.'

and to quote Theoden; 'How did it come to this?'

Emma(Alter-ego me): Alexei and Georges-sama look p*ssed.... BIG TIME P*ssed... I think I'll just go hide downstairs with Wesley.... and Noelle and Sa-- No, wait, I have a better idea!?

Hamilton: *Sarcastic* Oh, really? Isn't that nice.

Me: Well, first I'm going to slap you for being an *ss, then I'm going to go get my Katana, and Georges-sama can get his sword and stuff and you get your gun.... And... Jefferson can use a violin bow and we can go and murder them! Sound good?

Washington: I like that idea. A lot.

Poor Jefferson, he looks like he's in shock! Adams looks like he's ranting, and Hancock/Hamilton and Washington look like their fury is the icy sort.
It's times like this when I really wish I could live in Canada or Europe.

True. Pretty much anywhere that doesn't have a majorly messed up economy and government.
My city has some of the stupidest people on the city council. And we have a mayor who was voted in simply because he used to play basketball for the city's NBA team. <sarcasm> Aren't we lucky! </sarcasm> The Founding Father's would have a stroke if they could see us.

*bows head* I guess lets be glad they aren't around to see how far we've fallen. Then again, if they were around, maybe they'd slap some sense into our government.

My dad and I were just talking today how nice it would be to sit some influential politicians from the past down with today's government and let them have a dialogue -- see what they learn.

"My word, Mr Jefferson....Look at what they have done to our country!" - J. Adams
"Gentlemen.....were our efforts in vain?"- T. Jefferson
"This is...outrageous. They are taking advantage of the freedom we fought for."- J. Hancock / A. Hamilton
"......"- G. Washington

Oh, LOL! But so true. I'm lucky to be in Australia....so safe @ the moment. Peeps @ school are giving the US guys the finger cuz our dollar is stronger than the US dollar. But, I still love the US no matter what. (maybe it becuz of the hot guys there!!!)

haha perfect!

no seriously though, it sucks so much to be middle class right now. The uneducated half the country elected a socialist hypocrite as president in which the only words that come out of his mouth are lies. If youre "rich", everyone hates you for no reason, but at least you have money. If your "poor" then the government steals everyone else's hard earned money and gives you whatever you want. The middle class is stuck being taxed until the household income is zero, and yet they think we can pay for college.

I guess every democracy must fall eventually. I guess its our turn. There's really no hope for us when idiots cant pull their head out of their backsides and learn how economics work. Unfortuntely, its all about popularity. Government is just middle school for starch-collared fat cats.

I've considered moving to Australia after I get out of college. If there are hot guys here, I havent found them haha. Maybe its because i only hang out with the Transformers nerds and band geeks. XD Hey we make good movies though! =D

Amen to you. Like, I'm a middle class citizen, and I do understand that some poor peeps are in need, it's just the lazy ones who don't do shit that I'm concerned about. I hate being middle class currently.
Yes, the only hot guys in Australia are the lifeguards, some farmers and some other dudes. Who knows?

PM Winston Churchill of the UK once said the worst form of government would be democracy. I don't know if it's true or not, I think it depends. I am aware of the bad side of democracy, but I prefer to look at the bright side of things.
