Description In Chicago bolts from the elevated train are being found on the streets below the tracks, almost one third of all bridges in America are close or past their expected life span, the Tappan Zee Bridge was built on wood pilings which may not survive much longer and the list goes on and on. The conservatives of America can be guilty of creating man caused disasters by their neglect of the American infrastructure while giving breaks and looking the other way to large corporations while spending trillions of dollars on wars of mass delusion.
The sound bites are filled with the just say NO conservative mantra & NO to consumer protection from financial institutions, NO to affordable universal health care for Americans, NO to making war criminals responsible for their actions, NO to reign in deficit spending to maintain wars built upon lies and deceit, NO to rebuilding America's infrastructure.
Since the Reagan years America's government has rung up massive deficits except during the Clinton Administration but the people of America have been sold the idea conservatives are fiscally responsible while they drape themselves in the American flag. Conservatives keep talking about their record on national security but if you peel back the rhetoric you will find the conservatives record to be abysmal and for some prominent conservatives criminal.
So yes while the conservatives like to use the term terrorism instead of man caused disasters they as a group have presided over the largest man caused disasters in this generation. Moreover, they are the root of the future man caused disasters when buildings, bridges, tunnels, and highways begin to fail. There is a reason why the conservatives don't like the term man caused disasters since over the next decade we will have many man caused disasters to lay at the feet of the party of NO.

Thomas Broadfoot III Art BySilent Fine Digital Artist
As a self-taught digital artist, I thrive on interpreting my ideas about our world and other worlds beyond, mixing reality and mystery by using tools of the 21st century to create art. My work has been influenced by my love of sci-fi stories, history, politics, science, and current events. While many of the landscapes appear to be photo-realistic, there are no photos used in creating the scenes. Among some of my greatest joys is the opportunity to create images that exist nowhere on this planet but within my own mind. Technology allows me to emulate traditional art media and techniques through several computer applications to create textures and shapes. I'm able to create and then assemble objects, skies, and terrains in the 3D graphics application, Vue.
Most of my images begin on a blank electronic canvas and expand layer upon layer. By creating my own vegetation, atmospheres, and terrains, I can then combine them into a myriad of land or seascapes. Just as any artist does, I pay particular attention to composition, color palette, lighting, and perspective. Every day I have dedicated time to creating art. I also keep up with new techniques via industry periodicals and internet research.
While my landscapes often remind viewers of places they recall, there is something intentionally otherworldly in the work. Collectors of my work appreciate it for its style, color, and textural appeal.
My current work investigates environmental devastation through surrealistic landscapes.
