The Celebration Of Latino Influence In A New Great American Iconography

Click on pic to enlarge!
mexican american iconographyHere we see a young Mexican man stepping into the batter's box. In the background is the Obama logo as this aspiring Latino baseball player looks into the pitcher's eyes and readies to try and hit the ball out of the park. You'll notice that this baseball player has the colors of taco ingredients in his uniform. Yellow to represent the cheese, orange to represent the hot sauce and green to represent the fresh green crispy lettuce. This young man has recently immigrated to America and his heart is full of dreams, many of which have been inspired by the recent election of President Obama, a black man, as this brown-skinned batter has hopes of hitting the ball and getting on base, a symbol which could represent many things. It could mean his getting a good-paying job. It could represent his buying a home for his family. It could symbolize his getting an education or it could even mean, if he hits a home run, that this young man may some day grow up to be President of the United States just as Barack Obama did. There are many iconic symbols of America such as the bald eagle or apple pie, but I hope to see more evolve with a multi-cultural flair such as this one. I personally look forward to more and more Latinos living in this country and more and more mixing of the races which, in turn will help create a more beautiful collective iconography that consists of such inspiring symbols such as the bald eagle wearing a sombrero, the Statue of Liberty wearing a pancho or more tacos being sold at baseball games than hot dogs. Hot dogs are disgusting things, anyway, and tacos have much more powerful metaphorical implications than the American hot dog whose interpretation beyond its literal meaning pretty much stops at crude comparisons of it to a certain male sexual organ.

Obama Cooks Republican Red Meat Thoroughly To Thwart Criticism

Click on pic to enlarge!
obama cooking republican red meatMany Republican demagogues are out there who want to manipulate their followers and listeners into believing that President Obama is some kind of extreme left-wing radical who is bent on the idea of turning America into some kind of socialist country or drastically altering this nation into the near opposite of what all these Republican herd members think the country should be. They throw out the "red meat" and call Obama things like "communist," "fascist"; they talk about him bankrupting their grandchildren with excessive liberal spending; they speak of him wanting to take away their guns, that he doesn't wear a flag pin, he is unpatriotic, soft on terrorism, a celebrity, and the list goes on and on. The Republican zoo-keepers throw-out the "red meat," charging Obama with having the qualities, ideas and desires that stand directly opposed to the Republicans' views on policy and values, and the animals that make up the far-right wing of the conservative base eat up the meat without even cooking it. They don't put it on the grill and let it cook before they ingest it, and that is a big part of the problem. Because if they researched President Obama's views and policies they would realize that he is not very radical at all and that he is for the most part, in most cases, a just slightly left-of-center Democrat and, despite what the Republican herd likes to think, Democrats are just as American as they are.

The picture above shows President Obama with his presidential fork pierced through a piece of Republican-butchered piece of red meat that he is getting ready to grill and cook so that when his Republican critics taste it they will realize that it doesn't taste as bad as they thought it would! This picture is part of my larger Rod Blagojevich fan art painting. Of course, all through the election Republicans were calling Obama a crook simply because he was from Chicago. It was inevitable that after Blagojevich, then governor of Illinois, was arrested, there would be a chorus of "I told you sos" emitting from between conservatives' blood-stained, raw meat-eating lips. But that was before Obama began cooking the meat and as soon as it was well-done it would be seen that absolutely no connection could be made between Blago's crimes and President Obama. It was just another example of Republican red raw meat being thrown at the mindless pitchfork-wielding far-right masses which, when cooked thoroughly on the grill by Obama, shows itself to not taste bad in the least! As a matter of fact it is really quite juicy and tasty when made into steak fajitas!

Mexican Rock Climbers Give AIG Executive Tacos For Christmas

Click on pic to enlarge!
aig executive receives mexican tacosI hate to quote George W. Bush, but as he once said, "There are some jobs Americans just won't do" and so we let the Mexicans come in and do them. Personally, I don't ride on such a "high horse" as an American to think there are certain jobs I am just too good for. Before "advancing" to my current job at a Mexican fast food restaurant, I actually worked as the janitor at an adult book store, tasked with cleaning up the movie viewing booths, which is a job I'm sure most Americans would refuse to engage in. But besides that, it is a shame that Bush's quote became a catalyst for collective American giggles and mockery of the Mexican people who are unfortunate enough to not have it as good as Americans do. In the picture above you see an extract from my larger painting, "The Christmas Bail-Out Of Taco-Filled Cat Bellies" which attempts to document the U.S. government's recent TARP bailout of U.S. Banks. In this extract you see two brave Mexican rock climber buddies of President-Elect Obama scaling down the side of a cliff in order to give a starving "Fat" Cat AIG executive, who is sinking in the green guacamole of his own greed, a few tacos to eat for the holidays. Of course, witnessing the public outrage recently over the giving of AIG bonuses to AIG employees using taxpayer money, no American would volunteer to do this for an AIG employee. So we have a couple nice and charitable Mexicans once again having to do America's "dirty work." I'm not chastising Americans for their stance on such matters. All I am trying to do is give the Mexican people who do work hard and labor tirelessly doing jobs we refuse to do a little recognition and credit.

Following The Great Christmas Underwear Star Of Greedy Corporate Crooks

Click on pic to enlarge!
underwear starOn a snowy Christmas Eve night, President-Elect Barack Obama put on his Santa Claus suit, met with a few of his Mexican friends, gathered up a few tacos from the trash cans of local Mexican restaurants and set out into the dark, chilly night, following the Great Christmas Underwear Star Of Greedy Corporate Crooks in an effort to find the former Fat Cat chief executives of down-trodden banks who had recently asked the government for bail-out money. It is this "Great Christmas Underwear Star" that symbolizes the nakedness and humiliation that these executives must feel as they beg the taxpayers for money to pay for their own avarice and incompetence. It had been rumored that these money-grubbing weasels had fallen off a cliff and found themselves slowly sinking deeper and deeper into a green guacamole pit of their own greed. When Santa Obama arrived the Fat Cats had become so emaciated, so starved for something to fit inside their shriveled bellies that when Obama offered them tacos if they promised to never again have the band "Earth, Wind and Fire" play at any more of their parties and instead opt for the savory, spicy melodies of whatever Mexican salsa band was hottest at the time, they meowed in resounding agreement. It is then when the Great Christmas Underwear Star above gleamed most brightly as it was discovered that Santa Obama, in his beatific benevolence and charming, persuasive eloquence, could turn even a financial disaster into a cause for the appreciation of other cultures.

Obama Says, "Tacos And Not Drugs!"

Click on pic to enlarge!
mexican santa sleigh driverFeliz Navidad! To me there is no better thing to eat on Christmas day than delicious,zesty Mexican food. The spicy hot sauce and savory seasonings put a jalapeno in your heart and splatter your holiday spirit full of hot sauce happiness. Though he was not yet officially President yet, on Christmas Eve Barack Obama put on a Santa Claus suit and asked a few Latino-Americans to volunteer to help him as he flew about the country giving tacos to those in need in an effort to promote multi-culturalism and awareness of the growing problems in Mexico. Not only do we have the persistent dilemma of immigration to deal with, there are dangerous drug wars that are increasing in their savagery in Mexican border towns like Tijuana and Juarez. This war has spilled over a bit into our country as a few Americans in San Diego, California and El Paso, Texas have reported opening some of their Christmas presents to find the severed head of a Mexican drug dealer in the box! As the debate rages on as to whether the U.S. government should consider legalizing drugs to stop this madness, President Obama and his Mexican buddies have a different idea which is best expressed through the slogan, " TACOS AND NOT DRUGS!!

The Macabre Post-Election Transformation Of Reverend Jeremiah "Wrightenstein"

Click on pic to enlarge!
jeremiah wright with obamaAs Jeremiah Wright said in his speeches during the election campaign last year, if Barack Obama became president he was going to come after him with criticism in regard to America's alleged shortcomings in the areas of civil rights and social justice. I like Jeremiah Wright and respect him as a master of his trade and as an important voice in the black Christian community. I think Jeremiah Wright's incendiary remarks regarding U.S government experiments on blacks and our deserving what happened on 9/11 actually helped Obama in the sense that it gave him a sort of "street cred" and took a bit away from the conspiracy theories that said he was a Manchurian candidate serving as a puppet for white corporate executives and other shadowy rich old white men behind the scenes. Race is always going to be an important issue in America but it's a shame that after the election Jeremiah Wright became "Reverend Wrightenstein" and started doing all these horrific experiments in a lab underneath an undisclosed church, with Father Pfleger as his "Igor-like" assistant. To somehow make up for their divisive racial remarks during the election, they are trying to "trump" Obama in the area of "racial unity" by performing experiments on the cadavers of various races and interchanging their body parts to create these zombie-like creatures to be used by the group ACORN to "get out the vote" for dead people in 2012. While I think Reverend Wrightenstein's heart is in the right place, someone needs to please tell him to return the dead body of my long dead "typical white grandmother" to her final resting spot before he tries to give her the head of some anonymous Mexican dude or gives her the legs of some poor long-deceased Asian man.

Wind Turbines And Increased Sexual Freedom In the American Southwest

Click on pic to enlarge!
wind turbines and homosexualityOil man, T. Boone Pickens, has been making alot of commercials where he talks about his big wind farm and how we as a country can harness wind as a major source of energy in the upcoming years. Alot of what I was thinking when I made my painting, "The Gay Green Energy Of Frankengore" was about the powers of the wind but in a more metaphorical way as in letting the wind take me wherever it pleased, anywhere I could be free and bonding with other men is fine with me! Now that Al Gore has announced that once he becomes "Secretary of Taco Ingredient Farming" and that Mexican food will play a major role in making our planet greener, many men-- and I just may become one of them-- are bound to flock down to the American Southwest to work on the tomato, lettuce and jalapeno farms to get good government jobs that have health benefits. We will get to work with our male Mexican neighbors in creating a greener economy, making us not only free from oil but also free from any of society's restrictions on sexual orientation and the so-called "laws" governing who or what a male American should engage in intimate relationships with. It is the touch of the wind on your skin while working on a hot jalapeno farm sometimes that finally frees a man from the prison he has lived in that told him he should never admire the body of another man. Once these American males get down there close to the border and they start to work together in their underwear, as Al Gore said he would have them do, all bets will be off and the wind blowing from nearby wind turbine farms will be enough to finally make many males realize they have been missing out on so much multi-cultural pleasure. Now that's "Change (in orientation) You Can Believe In" indeed!

Mexicans And Americans Work Together In Underwear To Fill The Gas Tank Of A Tractor

Click on pic to enlarge!
mexican american workers in their underwearThere is no longer any shame in hanging out in one's underwear with other men. There should be no embarassment involved if a group of men desire to hang out at the beach or on the tomato and lettuce farms together, wearing nothing but their underwears as they work up a sweat and admire one another's physiques. Alot of hard work needs to be done to save the planet and to get this green economy rolling. Much of it is very hard labor in the lettuce, tomato and jalapeno fields for the cause of growing only the finest ingredients for Mexican food. The tiresome labor has a risk of causing a decline in male worker morale and that is why, though they might not reveal it openly, the Obama administration is in full support of male workers forming loving physical bonds with one another. Secretary of Taco Ingredient Farming, Al Gore, realizes that many straight, macho American and Mexican men might be reluctant to engage in same-sex affairs with their co-workers at first and that is why men will be allowed to work in their underwear so as to initiate a certain sense of freedom and a gradual lusting for one another's bodies as the work gets tougher and the bodies get harder and the skin gets wetter and wetter under a hot taco sun. Men will find that they will gravitate toward one another naturally, American and Mexican men will not only feel better about their work environment by engaging in physical recreation with one another, but they will also be working toward the goal of multi-cultural unity. The energy gained from these intimate male worker relationships is not only clean but, it can also, if hooked up to and ran through the appropriate hose, often fill up the entire gas tank of a tractor to be used in the jalapeno fields.

Al Gore's "Taco Ingredient Farms" And the Advancement Of Multi-Cultural Male Unity

Click on pic to enlarge!
mexican american gay tomato field workersIt's no secret that many of the green jobs that Al Gore has promised to provide Americans with once he is appointed "Secretary of Taco Ingredient Farming" by Obama will be the wonderful jobs on the tomato and lettuce farms near the Mexican border in the American Southwest. Since Al Gore fully understands the symbolism of a taco he will make sure that only the finest workers will be sent to these farms where the important taco ingredients of tomatoes and lettuce are grown. Here is where Mexican and American workers will serve the American-Mexican Union hand-in-hand, working together to renew the future of both countries. There will be many hot days but the nights will be full of bliss as many green-minded American men may find themselves bonding with some wonderful, hairy-chested, muscular Mexican farm workers. After filling their tummies with the clean energy they receive from eating tacos filled with fresh lettuce and ripe tomatoes all day, it will be time to engage in certain pleasurable "acts of unity" that will be bound to create the needed tension and friction to run a generator at night to keep the lights on over the fields so that workers can pick tomatoes and lettuce around the clock. It won't be easy work but the benefits will be immeasurable as American and Mexican men learn to love one another in ways which some of them may never have before dreamed of.

Taco Art As A Way Of Taking Mexico Seriously

Click on pic to enlarge!
obama makes mexican happyAn unsavory-looking Mexican man stands behind President Obama in this picture as perhaps a symbol pointing to the fact that the problems in Mexico will be forever hovering over Obama's head during his administration. I know that in many ways Mexico is not taken seriously by Americans and it gets a bad rap. When Americans think of Mexico they think of tacos, burritos and funny pictures of guys wearing sombreros. But in watching the news it is looking more and more as if we have a nation right next to us involved in a full-blown civil war pitting the Mexican government against the drug cartels. Some people are actually saying that the solution to the problem is to legalize the drugs but do you seriously think that will ever happen in the United States? This ridiculous "solution" seems to be thrown out there by people who basically think there is no solution simply because Americans have never liked to take Mexico seriously. My approach is to not necessarily take Mexico seriously as a THREAT but as a vast resource of culture and art to be further integrated into American life. That is one of the motivations behind my integrating parts of Mexican culture and its delicious food into my "Obama Taco Underwear" painting series.
