    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    I can see Canada out my window. Does that make me a commie?

    No. Just the first line of defense.

    Damn poutine-eaters.
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Let's not be didactic in this profession, because that is a path to disillusion and irrelevancy.

    Being south of the border doesn't make you a commie, it makes you a destination.

    Where do you find this stuff Dan? I don't know if these people are being honest or ironic, tho I did like the Wolverine claws on Ben Franklin.
    When did I go from Luke Skywalker to Obi-Wan Kenobi?

    I drive by that place often, glad its 'south of the border' where it belongs. If I need to stop, I'll wait for the Florence Zaxbys. Thanks.

    ducks for cover and runs back to the north.

Why the RPG? Aren't they commie/muslim weapons? Has he gone over? His saddle blanket is a representation of the American flag, which probably is flag desecration. And the saddle itself seems to have a fax machine on it, with a dangling knife. In the background are the ruins of the twin towers. What message is the artist attempting to portray?

    OTOH, I love America.

    If our presidents are going to represent our freedom, who better than Teddy?

    I think that's bigfoot he's killing for trying to take away his 2nd amendment rights.

    I just want to say that both the Reagan-Dinosaur-Renegade-Onslaught and the Teddy-Takes-On-Saskwatch-with-Superior-Firepower images are AWESOME!

    I want them printed and framed with inspirational phrases beneath them in my office!

    Apparently freedom is also another word for being able to paint sh!t that doesn't make any sense. And I love it! Kudos to the artists.

    Freedom means zoning your land however I want! A lot of young men and women died to give us that freedom.
