Tacos, Underwear And A Failed Attempt At "Feel Good Art"

Click on pic to enlarge!
osama bin laden with 911 firemanThere are some things that even a tasty taco cannot reconcile. There are some things so horrible and anger-inducing and sad that even injecting a delicious, zesty taco into the picture cannot alleviate the negativity. And no, not even underwear can help, either. In this picture you see Osama bin Laden with his arms around a ghost of a fallen 911 fireman. He has a pair of American underwear on his head and a Mexican taco in his hand. I thought it would be interesting to try and make a portrait of forgiveness and unity. I've tried to align the victim with its murderer, add a taco and a pair of underwear and see if it would make me feel better, if somehow through art I could paint a prettier picture and grant myself at least a bit of redemption, give myself a bit of peace over the fact that our country wasted 7 long years fighting the WRONG WAR in Iraq to fill the coffers of despicable, money-grubbing, greedy corporate hands who lied us into thinking they were trying to save us from the "boogeyman." No taco and no pair of funny, humorous underwear on someone's head can make me feel better, can make me feel as if I have not been swindled and blatantly deceived by my nation and its leaders. Not only am I angry at Osama bin Laden but I am mad at my own country. A major element in President Obama's campaign was that of "HOPE" and I am hoping he will set things right, that he will be successful in Afghanistan, that he will set right the financial disaster the war and those corporate crooks have left our country with. I have hope that Obama is our man, that he is right and he is just and that by the end of his presidency the taco will lie peacefully alongside the underwear and I can look at pictures of Osama bin laden without wanting to scream.

Even Tacos And Underwear Cannot Help Osama bin Laden

Click on pic to enlarge!
obama smokes cigarette during 9/11Here we see Osama bin laden with a pair of American underwear on his head. This is to express how he is not taken seriously as a terrorist by some and how some conspiracists and 911 Truth Movement people say about Osama actually being a CIA operative, that he is used as a boogeyman to strike fear into the hearts of Americans and justify ongoing wars in Iraq and Afghanistan so the government can slowly chip away at the civil liberties of free Americans in ther name of national security. I choose to remain aloof and not take a side in this argument and my goal is simply to document some ideas that are out there. That is why I put a taco in Osama's hand as if to say, "Chill out, Osama, quit killing Americans and eat a taco." Whether Osama is alive or dead; whether he is working for the CIA, the Illuminati, the Shadow Government, the U.S. government or if he really is the leader of Al Qaeda and everything the mainstream media says is true, one thing I know for certain is that if he walked around with a pair of underwear on his head eating tacos all the time he might have alot more friends, not be so angry and maybe not have to live in a cave. That is until someone reported him to the authorities, of course, and he was put in prison and probably later executed for killing nearly 3,000 Americans. Unfortunately for some people it's a case where even tacos and underwear can only do them so much good.
