An artwork of your animal friend
By an animal friend, I mean your own pet, but it can also be your family pet, family dog for example, as well as some animal you're closely connected to and love very much, like that one special horse of your granddad's you made friends with and love to ride.
Does my animal friend have to be..uhm...alive?
No. I even encourage making an artwork of an animal you loved very much, but unfortunately is no longer with you, for whichever reason. Always wanted to draw your dog you spent so many wonderful years together? Now's a good time.

ACTAYou're the fire searing my lungs.ACTA3 years ago in Personal More Like This
You're the darkness blazing in my mind.
You're the pain that scrapes my skin, the itch I cannot scratch,
you're crushing the breath out of me
AND YOU'RE PROUD OF IT.
Real noble, real chivalrous, you Armani-wearing cowards--
beating a schoolgirl down without giving her a chance.
300 to one. Yeah. Fair.
FAIR MY FREEDOM-LOVING ASS.
You wouldn't know what freedom meant if the Statue of Liberty smacked you with her torch.
What do you do when the flag is flown? Flip the bird? Stick out your tongue?
Who died and made you God?
No; not God. God knows best. God wants what is best. God actually cares.
Words just can't describe what you are, but I'll give my best shot. I'll say as much as I can before you smother me.
HIDING IN YOUR THOUSAND-DOLLAR SUITS AND YOUR MANY, MANY PROSTITUTES
POLLUTING WHAT WAS MEANT FOR GOOD.
SPITTING ON YORKTOWN, ON BOSTON,
YOU'RE PISSING ON THE BLOODY BATTLEGROUNDS FROM WHENCE WE CAME
AND TRYING TO CALL IT RAIN.
Angst as an excuse for evil and insanityThis is something that really pisses me off. A lot of people I debate will express opinions that fly in the face of common sense and morality. And then when I call them out for it, they tell me this sob story about how their fundie Christian parents were mean to them, so they lie about what the Bible says, or they support eliminating religious freedom for the sake of political correctness, secularism, or free birth control. Or how they were a war veteran, and so they support social darwinism and/or moral relativism.Angst as an excuse for evil and insanity2 years ago in Personal More Like This
If you use those things as an excuse for your vile behavior and childish beliefs, I have no obligation to feel sorry for you. In fact, I think you're a weakling. One that wants to subject your misery upon those around you.
So man up, look at yourself in the mirror, and just be honest about how awful a person you truly are, and change. Or don't change, there aren't enough card carrying villains in this world. :V

In light of the recent acts of SOPA, PIPA, ANDD, and the ACTA laws/bills, the time has come to not only show ourselves and our opinions to the world but to speak them as well. After tomorrow the ACTA document will pass in the UK. Once that happens anyone caught crossing the border with music, movies, TV shows, or any kind of possibly pirated material on their MP3 Player, Iphone or Laptop can be arrested. Even if you just jail broke your Iphone you could be put in jail for up to five years. Videos on Youtube will be removed as well as accounts and the people all across Ireland and the United Kingdoms will be put in jail. And they're not taking into consideration that some of these supposed 'pirates' are college students and children. Children that might not even be aware they committed a crime by having a friend

Obama Admin. Vs. Special Ops CommunityAlright, my unstable and insatiable journal minions,Obama Admin. Vs. Special Ops Community3 years ago in Personal More Like This
As I passed along to y'all, OPSEC Team is slamming Obama and his Administration for all of the leaks that have been coming out of Washington post Geronimo-KIA. The OPSEC Team consists of personnel who can speak for those who cannot due to their positions in the field or because of their recent work; personnel ranging from former CIA, Marines, Navy SEALs, Army Special Forces and Rangers and so forth. They are attacking Obama because of his Administration's political capitalization on the events of the bin Laden raid and post-op.
Namely, one event, was that the ObAdmin put out a video to excel his presidential reelection bid, using it as if he himself had gone in and pulled the trigger so that he could score big with the public against his political opposition, Mitt Romney. It was, as the OPSEC Team put it, a "victory lap".
What the OPSEC Team put out was a 22-minute video, call

Do I Have To Explain Why Killing Babies Is Wrong?!There is plenty of room for gray area in morality. But sometimes, some things are black and white with no ounce of gray in between. One of those things is infanticide, which is clearly black. And while one should always have a well-reasoned constructive argument against something, as blogger Matt Walsh explains, sometimes, no argument is needed:I don’t know how else to explain this. Can I really formulate an argument that will explain why we shouldn’t murder disabled children? If you don’t immediately recognize the eugenic slaughter of handicapped babies as something severely troubling, I’m not sure that I can offer any insights to help you understand.Do I Have To Explain Why Killing Babies Is Wrong?!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
You see, this is the problem. This is why we can’t come to any agreements. This is why our arguments are fruitless. They don’t have to be — arguing could be a rather worthwhile activity.

for me... my new years decision that i might actually try to uphold is to further work on killing my remaining cynicism.
i have been fighting hard to destroy it and hopefully it will die in 2014 XD
cynicism is an attitude that sees only problems and gives no solutions. it is a poison that spreads fast and has a way of ruining the days of many people....
i can feel that shit creeping up within me way too often and i will not stand for it! XD
anyhoo.. back to work for me cya!

The Right To Keep & Bear ArmsAlright, my unstable and insatiable journal minions,The Right To Keep & Bear Arms3 years ago in Personal More Like This
UPDATE, AT BOTTOM, UNDER WILLY!
I do know you will pardon any wording in this piece that seems offset for the current time. This journal has been in the works for a little over four-weeks, so some of it might sound past-tense right at the moment. Thank you.
Today, I do believe, we are going to touch off on the Second Amendment. More for those who follow me and don't like guns, or don't believe in gun rights, or don't understand the reason for the Second Amendment; commonly and correctly also known as "The Right To Keep And Bear Arms". The text of the Second Amendment (II) is as follows; A well regulated militia,
Being necessary to the security of a free state,
The right of the people to keep and bear arms,
Shall not be infringed. So, we usually start with the 'people who don't like firearms' category. This is broken down into two sub-categories of who 'don't like them just because' (Everyone El
Women & The InfantryOh, I can already hear the bitching from some of you. Well, that's fine, nobody asked for you opinion, so stow that horseshit.Women & The Infantry3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Alright, my unstable and insatiable journal minions,
There is a lot of controversy on this particular subject; especially in the U.S. Marine Corps right now. Considering this is the United States; most countries on the outside would think that it is odd women do not have more full, "hands-on-guns", combative roles. In the U.S. Marine Corps, as well as the Special Operations Forces subunits, it is becoming increasingly agitating for some people to see women's rights being shoved down their throats by the forces of idiot Top Brass.
Argumentatively, I think there are better countries out there to fight with, in regards to who they let fight and what they fight with. All in all, it's not what they fight with. Air Forces and Navies, alike, rely on machines and computers to get the job done. The Armies of today mostly rely on logistics and "intelligence" assets (old
NJ Artwork HubA hub for all the NJ-related Art and Fan ArtNJ Artwork Hub1 year ago in Personal More Like This
This is in regards to the character Nuclear Jackal NJ was originally a logo I drew in College. I then made a surreal self-portrait I did based on the logo, and he soon became very popular as a character and makes appearances in my comic, Johnny Steve's Miraculous Trip http://fav.me/d6hbpb7
NJ himself doesn't have a backstory (feel free to make your own backstory if you like). However he's a shapeshifter who can transform into various forms, including a female version of himself, and he can also duplicate himself into many forms, so he can be in two places at once.
All artwork regarding the Nuclear Jackal that is uploaded by me, NuclearJackal , is official. Artwork done by others is unofficial (and awesome too! )
Are Nuclear Jackals a species? Well officially there is only one Nuclear Jackal, who can take on different forms and multiply itself. However, if Nuclear Ja

Hello my watchers/non-watchers/kind visitors, and of course, hello spammers!
I don't know from where to begin because there's a lot to say about this kind of subject called spam.
I've seen that some of people on deviantart.com don't really know what the word spam means, so I will try to be smart with the help of my little friend wikipedia, and use a chance while it's not blocked by SOPA, PIPA and all the other annoying short names. So, here it is (annoying but useful definition):
"Spam is the use of electronic messaging systems (including most broadcast media, digital delivery systems) to send unsolicited bulk messages indiscriminately. While the most widely recognized form of spam is e-mail spam, the term is applied to similar abuses in other media: instant messaging spam, Usenet newsgroup spam, Web search engine spam, spam in blogs, wiki spam, online classified ads spam, mobile phone messaging
