A Mexican Flag On The U.S. Capitol Building?

Click on pic to enlarge!
mexican flag on us capitol buildingHere I have placed a Mexican flag on the U.S. Capitol Building, not as a way of being unpatriotic or trying to be offensive or implying that Mexico is "taking over" but to simply represent the fact that I think Mexico and the Hispanic population are going to have a very large role to play in the rebuilding of our nation in this new era which began with the election of President Obama. Is it possible that our next president will perhaps be a Hispanic? I think the Mexican drug wars going on south of the border right now are going to put Mexico more and more in the spotlight as time goes on. People are going to stop laughing about Mexico and perhaps begin to take it more seriously. I think just as the economic collapse in the United States is leading to a sweeping redefining of America and restructuring, the fact that Mexico is on the verge of total collapse will, in the end, somehow bond it closer to the United States and I look forward to seeing what the results of that will be. While it is true that America will always be its own sovereign nation and stand strong in the face of adversity, there can be no doubt that though the flag hanging from the Capitol Building is and always will be an AMERICAN one, the politicians voted in to serve inside the building will be highly influenced by what happens in Mexico and an increasing number of American voters will be Hispanics with Mexican roots.

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.

When Will Obama Visit Mexico?

Click on pic to enlarge!
taco disaster in MexicoThough there is alot going wrong in Mexico right now, this little snapshot shows that I think the hope Obama has inspired in us Americans should be extended to places such as Mexico. Obama traveled to Berlin over the summer and spoke before thousands upon thousands of people. There is talk that he is soon to travel to a Muslim nation and speak there. I'm sure at some point he will travel to Asia and Russia but what of places like Mexico? Obama went to Canada soon after taking office but what of our other North American neighbor south of us? Maybe I am naive but I find Mexico fascinating in its potential. When I think of it my heads fills with soaring visions of fiestas, beautiful women, hot sauce, tacos and the pink underwear you see in the pic above is intended to express my optimism in the face of Mexico's current struggles. Yes, I do often dress Republicans in pink underwear as sort of a joke but I think pink underwear can also be used to symbolize happiness, joy in the face of struggle and the sweet scent of feminine beauty. All of this can be found in Mexico!

It is actually my hope that in a backward sort of way, the problems the Mexican government is facing with the drug cartels will draw more attention to Mexico and make people more sympathetic toward its people. For a foreign country who has more immigrants to the U.S than any other, it seems strange that Mexico seems so often to be ignored by Americans except when they are hungry for Mexican food, want to go on Spring Break or are complaining about all the illegal aliens taking their jobs.

Obama Has Mexico On His Mind Underneath A Hot Taco Sun

Click on pic to enlarge!
mexican flag on white houseHere we have Barack Obama at the bottom of a picture of the White House which has a Mexican flag waving from the top of it. I put alot of Mexican flags in my "Obama Taco Underwear" painting series to show my support of multiculturalism in America in general, but also to help promote awareness throughout the country that Mexico and Mexican immigrants will be playing a larger and larger role in the shaping of our nation. The face of America is going to change dramatically in the next 50 years. In the next 50 years it is said that white people will actually be a minority in this country. I'm not saying at all that this should be a reason for concern amongst white people, but I simply urge everyone to EMBRACE it. Eat a taco. Learn how to speak Spanish. Learn about the Mexican people and their culture as I am slowly trying to do, and though the country will be much different in the future, I think it will be even greater as the races mix, which in my opinion produces alot of hot-looking exotic women.

In this picture, President Obama has a taco for a halo and I put it there in the hopes that he does, indeed, have Mexico and Mexican food on his mind as he stands there on the White House lawn, soaking under a hot Taco Sun.

Obama Stands Far Away From The Flag Of Mexico

Click on pic to enlarge!
obama and the mexican flagHere is a picture of President Obama standing faaaaar away from the Mexican flag as it sinks deeper and deeper into a lake of nacho cheese sauce. Many people say that it is Mexico and not places like Iraq and Afghanistan that will give Obama fits during his presidency. Many analysts feel that Mexico is on the verge of a total cataclysmic collapse into anarchy. The drug lords and cartels are slowly taking over the whole country. More and more Mexican immigrants are crossing the border, committing violent crimes and stealing American jobs. This is another reason why I like to focus on Mexican food because I feel that the Latino population will play a more and more critical role in our nation's success or failure. Obama is now faaaar away from the Mexican flag as it sinks. Don't you think he should draw a little closer to it and pull it out of the nacho cheese sauce before it is too late?
