making up for lost time

Due to the holidays, I missed doing the last two IF challenges. So, I sat down twice today and did two quick sketches to take care of my self-designated obligation. The first one I missed was 'PEACE'. I immediately thought of my fiance who, instead of sitting her regular Zazen at my old aikido dojo, ran herself ragged at Christmastime.



The other I missed was 'PHOENIX'. There were a lot of cliches available: an actual firey bird; the ship from Battle of the Planets, or Jean Grey. I decided to go with a lesser known cliche. I am still new to digital coloring and haven't quite got the feel of the tablet yet. I am no guache expert by any means, but there is a feel to moving paint that digital coloring doesn't have.




So, these aren't finished illustrations, I know that, but it's the thought that counts, right? Right?

It has come to my attention that the liberal left have distorted the English language by making up non-sensical phrases to describe things and activities that have been easily defined for hundreds of years. The true meanings of these propagandish phrases are as follows:
Embrace diversity-love a nigger, spic, wap, chink, or sand nigger
Empower women-have politicians looking for votes allow the courts to become communistic tools to give women money from fathers getting screwed by the system so they won't tax the welfare wystem and get handouts with less shame
gay rights-allow fags and dykes to sodomise and copulate without getting castrated or de-cunt lipped
domestic violence-what happens when a husband catches his bitch sucking his neighbors dick
wetland-a worthless swamp that should be used for a garbage dump but liberals want it for "wildlife"
undocumented alien-a spic in the USA illegally
politically correct-what the unhappy commentors to this post will attempt to define so readers will think they are "in the know" and "cool".

Am I the only one who got this idiot? Has he got some kind of 'comment bot', was it random, or was he specifically targeting me?

It's rather like Borat only with the grain of satiric humor surgically removed along with a large part of the region of the brain that controls reasoning. A good deal of the language centers appears to be degraged as well.

I don't know what is more disturbing: if this person truly believes this, or they are just trying to get a rise out of everyone and expending a whole lot of energy for no real purpose.
