THIS IS AMERICA

Monday, December 13th, 2010
[caption id="attachment_3600" align="alignnone" width="540" caption="19x25" Screenprint on 140lb CVR French Paper; Smart White"][/caption] Hello and Welcome! It's the final weeks of 2010. Holiday time is upon us. Good tidings. Great cheer. Et cetera and so on. And I for one am looking forward to a little down time. A nice bit of "slow down" if you will. Perhaps some reflection, a little visioning for the coming year and for certain some booze. Maybe even lots of booze. This is America after all. Amidst all the food, family and shopping, being driven to drink is certainly a national pastime. Reflecting on America in 2010, there are a couple of other certainties that will be with us as 2011 is ushered in. The war isn't over, even if we want it. The economy not recovered. And the environment is still being left to the polluters. The education system is abysmal for most. Health care now even more corporatized. Big money floods like never before into our elections. More tax cuts for the rich, less jobs for the rest. Glenn Beck is still talking insanity. Sarah Palin's out there doing whatever the hell you call that thing Sarah Palin does. And John Boehner is set to be the new Speaker of the House. While President Barack Obama, from this lefty's perspective, is leaving a lot to be desired. The least we can do, instead of building that damn wall, demonizing the Islamic cultural center in New York or keeping our gay and lesbian service members in the shadows of the military, is all be a little more welcoming. It should be handshake first (or hug, whichever you prefer), suspicion second. It's the core of that American Dream Representative Boehner is so fond of. It wasn't always "innocent until proven guilty". And it doesn't have to be "this is America, learn to speak English, these colors don't run, USA-USA-USA" or whatever else we chant to assert our "dominance." Instead, we can be a little less of a jerk. For the record, we need not worry about taking our country back from anyone. There's plenty of America to go around, we just need to learn to share it a little better. Sometimes it can seem impossible, what with all the wealth up at the top. But we can change that. And fix the environment. And end those wars. And make education available to all. Same with health care. It will take time. And a lot of effort. Along the way, I think it would be best if, instead of that wall and whatever demonizing of the other we've got going on this week, let's put the friendlier side our nature out front first. And save all the energy we've been putting into that damn wall for some new schools instead. So let's keep being the place where anybody, anywhere can come and make a go of it. That's certainly something to be proud of. Now say it with a smile: THIS IS AMERICA. HELLO! AND WELCOME. You can purchase a print of This Is America Hello! and Welcome for $20 HERE. It's my End-O-2010 poster being sold so I can keep doing random projects like this. Thank you for your support. -- Justin Kemerling, Designer. justinkemerling.com [caption id="attachment_3696" align="alignnone" width="540" caption="SHIPPED IN A STURDY TUBE"][/caption]

Jon Stewart’s speech at the Rally For Sanity

Monday, November 1st, 2010
I watched the live stream of the Rally to Restore Sanity on Saturday. Pretty funny. The Roots were awesome. The large Colbert puppet a nice touch. Plenty of laughs and lots of not taking ourselves too seriously. That right there is a good takeaway from the whole thing. To stop taking ourselves so damn seriously. But the closing speech by Jon Stewart was highly appropriate on many levels and a great way to close out the day. These are "hard times" not "end times" indeed. Some highlights:
  • The country's 24-hour, political pundit perpetual panic conflictinator did not cause our problems, but its existence makes solving them that much harder. The press can hold its magnifying glass up to our problems, bringing them into focus, illuminating issues heretofore unseen. Or they can use that magnifying glass to light ants on fire, and then perhaps host a week of shows on the dangerous, unexpected flaming ants epidemic. If we amplify everything, we hear nothing.
  • We hear every damned day about how fragile our country is, on the brink of catastrophe, torn by polarizing hate, and how it's a shame that we can't work together to get things done. The truth is, we do! We work together to get things done every damned day! The only place we don't is here (in Washington) or on cable TV!
  • Most Americans don't live their lives solely as Democrats, Republicans, liberals or conservatives. Americans live their lives more as people that are just a little bit late for something they have to do. Often something they do not want to do! But they do it. Impossible things, every day, that are only made possible through the little, reasonable compromises we all make.
  • Because we know, instinctively, as a people, that if we are to get through the darkness and back into the light, we have to work together. And the truth is there will always be darkness, and sometimes the light at the end of the tunnel isn't the promised land. Sometimes, it's just New Jersey.

Rally to Restore Sanity

Friday, October 29th, 2010
In 01 Day : 02 Hours : 01 Minutes : 08 Seconds at the time of this post, the Rally to Restore Sanity will begin. Should be a good time. It's 2010. We're in America. An election is coming up fast and furious. All sorts of people are saying all sorts of crazy stuff. And there is just so damn much to laugh at. The absurd nature of things at this very moment can of course lead to something better. So let's just keep our heads. Happy Friday.

America Votes Soon…

Wednesday, October 27th, 2010
[caption id="attachment_3268" align="alignnone" width="540" caption="Fabric Of America By Adam Elliott"][/caption] In less than a week, on Tuesday, November 2nd, 2010, the American Voter will decide the future of the republic as it moves forward in 2011. Or backwards. And goodness, have you talked to the "American Voter" lately? It's a bit worrying. A couple years ago, I remember a lot of discussion about that American Voter being patient. And willing to make sacrifices as the Obama Administration made some very tough decisions about fixing the economy, health care, Afghanistan, the auto industry, credit cards, etc. To the American Voter, I say Ha! Voting Republican this year is like eating a Big Mac. It may taste good at first, but it's so bad for your health, the environment, gives you a headache in 1-2 hours and shouldn't you be buying local? Now, voting Democrat, you may be pissed at them, but really, they are the only chance of using that powerful tool known as the federal government to do really important shit. Like investing in solar, building a light rail system (remember, the FG built the Interstate system), stimulating the economy (yes, the stimulus was a good thing) and doing all the other things only the federal government can do in order to fix our big problems with health care, energy, environment, education and so on to eternity. So, if you're so concerned about our deficit, about leaving our children with piles of debt, well let's get to making some sacrifices. No more wars, tax cuts, oil subsidies, social security and Medicare. If you're more concerned with leaving our children with an uninhabitable planet because our carbon emissions officially ruined all chances to grow healthy food and breath clean air, well we still need that ole federal government. Because the states are a bunch of whiney crybabies. If you're tired of politics and would prefer to stay at home on November 2nd, really, some people are going to do that? And if you're a designer and want to make a poster about all the batshit craziness that is American Politics, please submit to PowertothePoster.org. Thank you.
