Yikes! New bill threatens First Amendment Rights"Imagine an America in which the government can deny protest in any public space it deems fit. Where wearing a dissenting shirt http://www.courthousenews.com/2012/03/12/44616.htm around an elected official could be construed as a felony. Where First-Amendment protections become privileges subjectively doled out by the state. Sadly, that America is pretty much here.Yikes! New bill threatens First Amendment Rights3 years ago in Personal More Like This
In March, Congress passed HR 347, a bill that limits Americans' ability to protest in public and on government grounds. Mainstream media didn't raise peep, but now there's finally some anger building. The bill, passed almost unanimously, makes it a federal offense punishable by up to ten years in prison to "knowingly" protest in the vicinity of the Secret Service--that is anywhere the Secret Service "is or will be temporarily visiting."
It also makes many public events impervious to lawful protest. Any "National Security Special Event" (NSSE) requires Secret Service protection. NSSE-designated events have proliferated since
Catholic church, you so wackyWacky in the sense of closeted bigotry, that is.Catholic church, you so wacky4 years ago in Personal More Like This
So I watched an episode of the Australian TV Show Q&A yesterday on Youtube. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tD1QHO_AVZA It was Richard Dawkins discussing- what else?- religion with Cardinal Pell, a senior catholic leader in Australia. While Professor Dawkins was jetlagged, he did pretty okay.
The cardinal, though...
Let's just get to the juicy bits right away: Pell comments, when asked why god would reveal himself only to a small nation of illiterate shepherds, that "they were morally an intellectually inferior" to the Egypians and Babylonians, and that "...they still are."
Up until that moment, Pell had seemed halfway sympathetic: accepting of other viewpoints, insisting that atheists too can go to heaven (a direct contradiction of biblical dogma, but the catholics aren't really big on staying consistent). Liberal, accepting, though terribly ignorant.
But it gets better.
On the question of Jews, holocaust etc, Pell manages to say that ".
A Big thank you to our watchers + random FeatureI just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to all our fans and watchers.A Big thank you to our watchers + random Feature3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I must say that when we began making Tiny Top Hats back in January of this year, I never expected to get such a wonderful support and reception!
So it occurred to me today I should do something back! I'd like to do a random feature of some of our awesome watchers and help everyone spread their art and maybe support you guys like you have so lovingly supported us :')
So I'd like to Feature the first 10 20 people here in this journal to post "I would like to be featured", and post in the Journal. I'll pick out some things from your gallery to feature as well!
I just wanted everyone to know how deeply it has moved me, all your support (And patience with me xD) and I would like to feature a lot of artists down the road if everyone likes the idea ^__^
Thanks again and again guys :iconawwwplz:
**Edit: I didn't realize so many would want to be featured, so I'll bump up the number to 20
Foreign Words the English Language NeedsOh hello. I’m finally getting around to making this news article that I said I might do, like, a month ago. Sorry, I’m not used to writing news articles. Bear with me.Foreign Words the English Language Needs3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Back in August, I started a series in my forums for cool foreign words. It went over extremely well and numerous people requested that I combine them into a handy-dandy news article for deviantART at large to enjoy. So, here you are: fifteen foreign words that the English language needs to
What it means: A feeling of longing associated with displacement, but not necessarily displacement from one’s original home. An intense yearning to be somewhere you are not. Hiraeth also expresses a sort of ache or longing for something of the past, somewhat similar to the notion of "golden" or "good old days," but with more ancient connotations.
Why it needs to be a thing in English: I speak as someone from a country

People people people peopleToo many people misuse terms like anxiety disorder, panic attacks, OCD, and phobias, it's starting to tick me off. Everybody feels an amount of fear and discomfort doing certain tasks, everybody performs odd rituals or behaviors at some point, yet these people use it so casually, such that I nor others cannot take these seriously anymore; I cannot distinguish which one's are serious and which one's are from whining.People people people people2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I pretty much call bullsh** on "phobias" people claim to have on random things these days. Most of them are not even clinical phobias, and as far I understand things like "phobias of telephones" is seriously a symptom to a much bigger problem, like social anxiety. I am incredibly afraid of making/taking phone calls, it causes me to lose half my day and endless coldsweat, but I highly doubt I have a phobia of it. Labeling it just feels like an excuse to not deal with and further investigate your issue, and i

Ponyscape v0.3!!Happy New Year Everypony!!Ponyscape v0.3!!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm proud to announce the release of version 0.3 of Ponyscape!! This is a continuation of the work on version 0.2, and includes some really cool new features! I've spent most of my time off during by holiday break working on and tweaking things in this release.
I have compiled binary packages for both Windows and Linux Mint 14 64-bit (should also work on Ubuntu 12.10). On Windows, download the zip file and extract it with 7zip or winrar and run ponyscape.exe. On Linux, download the deb package and install it by running "sudo dpkg -i " or using a GUI package installer of your choice. You can download these binary packages here:
Alternatively, you can download the entire source code and compile from scratch. I can confirm that compiling works on both Windows and Linux, and hopefully

I think I need cleavage...OMG.... Not that I'm not used to anything, but I was once again staggered by the downright porn that is available here on devart... cosplay related.I think I need cleavage...3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Most of the times it's like.... weirdo costumes that suck in quality and then (mostly girls... but highlight of my day was a naked Wolverine...) stripped of everything but the wig and the belts. And there are some very beautiful girls in there, but what the heck are they thinking?!
We killed ourselves laughing, no offense.... But some... most... were dowright sad.
But if I wanna boost my views I know what to do!!! I think I stated something like this before, but seriously...
Somehow being on devart with this kind of crap makes me related to it. And I HATE that.
Looking for my own domain on the net I guess....

I'm pretty sure most of you have experienced a case or two where you've come across an amateur picture of some guys' or girls' privates - And not the pretty kind with professional lighting and poses which makes for a nicely crafted artistic photo - No I mean the photos which can be best described as that horrible memory you have from being a kid where you shared the changing room with the older people when you see someones fully developed private part staring at you scarring you for the rest of your life.

So I just received this note to my inbox here on DA:
"David you are a blessed young man with TREMENDOUS talent ppl can only hope to aspire to but a spirit that has been hurt by so many ppl over "who you are". If u trusted and believed God like u say you do then trust Him when He says youre sexuality is not okay. u get scared because you dont know howw to"get rid of it" but its a spirit, i garuntee you. A member of a local church i know of had been delivered from that homosexual spirit that plauged Him for years!!! You may think it cant be done but if you believe in Jesus Christ and have accepted Him then there is NOTHING He can't do!!I say this with all the Love in my heart. God wants to bless you and turn you into a message for lost souls all around too^^"
How lovely it is to see that people hid their true thoughts behind compliments and smiley faces...
