    pj,

    So, are you a disgruntled conservative Republican, just cynical, both, or something else? (You do seem to be "something else", regardless -- no offence intended!) Do you simplistically under-anaylze everybody? Politics does not attract the unambitious, and all campaigning politicians are repetitious and of course try to portray themselves as leaders and, in a crisis, as messiahs, if you will. Is there no place for "inspiring" in your critiques? About 90% of people in other countries were and are rooting for Obama; they consider his election an almost incredible success story, a vindication of the best of America and democracy, and a hope for themselves and the world.

    No one knows why, but there have been several suggestions, the most common one being that the white one represented himself, isolated and apart from others. To me, it seems clear that it was intended as the major focal point of the painting, with the blue irises guiding the eye to it and becoming lighter as they approach it. A little white on petals to the far right of the painting provides some of the balance of the picture. I have to wonder if white was chosen merely because it is probably the best contrasting iris color for a focal point. I also wonder if maybe there was only one in the part of the flower bed that he painted; but, if so, he almost certainly chose that perspective so that the white one would be the focal point.

    George Bush did say he was chosen by God to lead this country. Hence A Jesus-Messiah Complex gone bad.

    McCain chose to use his Maverick approach and further used a one star as his symbol-Maverick Star

    Obama is by far the better markerter and chose to use the Jesus-Messiah Complex.
    Then you have your media that got behind him with this message.

    Where do you think this is all going to lead if he cannot pull it off?

    Don't tell me I have delusions:

    Says U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., D-Ill., the son of the civil-rights activist, of Obama's pending nomination: "The event itself is so extraordinary that another chapter could be added to the Bible to chronicle its significance." Movie director Spike Lee goes further. After the presidential election, "You'll have to measure time by 'Before Obama' and 'After Obama.'" Lee added, "Everything's going to be affected by this seismic change in the universe."

    "A black man with a white mother became a savior to us," proclaimed Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam. He "could turn out to be one who can lift America from her fall."

    Established journalists have embraced the new religion. "Barack Obama isn't really one of us," reports Mark Mortford of the San Francisco Chronicle. He is, in fact, "a Lightworker, that rare kind of attuned being who has the ability to lead us not merely to new foreign policies or health care plans or whatnot, but who can actually help usher in a new way of being on the planet, of relating and connecting and engaging with this bizarre earthly experiment. These kinds of people actually help us evolve."

    This is a very bizarre dancer opticial illusion. At first glance the spinning lady appears to be circling in a clockwise motion. But if you look at the spinning dancer long enough - the lady will appear to change direction and start spinning counter-clockwise.

    Here's a source for the dancer: http://www.news.com.au/heraldsun/sto...81-661,00.html


    Someone posted about this in some Treasure-Trove-related forum, and I bookmarked it. However, I haven't been able to find the post.
