“Are we finally safer, ... probably not, ‘specially since the Mid-East de-stabilization, the great recession, and corporate / military industrial domination of our Government. No worries, some things are still running quite well, the big money keeps flowing to the right people, who now are ensured one hundred years of conflicts fueling America’s number one export.

Having a sense of humor can be a good thing these days.The Modern Times series of artworks depict a view of our world that is kind of dark, problematic, even scary, flavored with a bit of satire. This series brings together a fusion of artistic styles, influences and inspirations like Urban - Street - Graphic Novel meets Conspiracy Theory/Political Commentary.

“Best not to have too much education these days, why be hindered by such things as facts. Surely beliefs, feelings, and ideologies are vastly more real and satisfying anyway. Why let confusion, scandal, and chaos ruin one’s day, don’t like something, just deny it.

Some say it’s tragic jobs and wealth have shifted overseas. Others can’t understand why our standard of living is declining and that since 9_11 the country has gone downhill due to unforeseen forces beyond our control. What a profound coincidence the emergence of new players, China, India, Russia, Iran should coincide with U.S. decline. Or is it? ”
