I get a kick out of these "free thinkers" whining about something they don't even believe in anyway.

Ever notice how these same people ask the following question concerning gay marriage?

"How does effect you anyway" ?

Maybe they should ask that of themselves when it comes to kids painting snow plows......

Free Thinkers not so free thinking Empty Draws Better than a 5th Grader

Post  Gomezz Adddams on Wed Oct 29, 2014 10:55 pm

Scott Ehrisman (posting as l3wis) over at the  Southdacola blog claims he can draw/paint better than a 5th grader. A hilarious exchange as Don Coyote points out that his rendering of the iconic photograph of Che Guevera by Alberto Korda with a crappy Jackson Pollock overlay qualifies as non-art according to Ehrisman's own definition.

"IT IS NOT ART! IT IS NOT ORIGINAL. They used an image of a logo that is a popular T-shirt design. Stenciling or copying a design is NOT artistic expression, it is COPYING." Well Ehrisman's rendition certainly wasn’t original since it uses an image of a photo that is a popular T-shirt design (not mention being on every other damn chic item known to man) and “borrows” heavily from the abstract style of Jackson Pollock. And yet it's not "copying" or so Scott claims in his little world:  "I will say this, I did not use an overhead projector to trace an image of Che when I did that painting."

It appears that the Siouxland Freethinkers forgot to get their shorts in a bunch last year as those butt krazy Lutheran childrens painted religious themed snowplows in 2013 as well.

The name "Free" Thinkers is clearly a downright lie.

How is a subjective name that a group calls themselves a lie? That's the dumbest thing I've heard in awhile.

By the way, I love the plows that Gomezz posted. Those are pretty cool and clever!

They don't stand for true "free" thinking.

I didn't think you'd understand that.

Thanks for proving my point.

They're such a free thinking group that even the sign saying the city doesn't endorse the art is not good enough and are planning on taking the city to court.

I don't see an issue with it as long as Muslims are allowed to paint a shrine to their religion on one. Don't forget atheists either...

If this was truly an "establishment" issue your stance would make you a non-preferentialist which favors an establishment for everyone. However the 1st Amendment doesn't allow for any establishment and for all the flap doodle this is not an establishment case.

In County of Allegeheny vs ACLU, the SCOTUS ruled that an eighteen foot menorah in front of the county/city building was "secular" and therefore didn't violate the Lemon test. WTF? An iconic symbol of the Jewish religious holiday of Hanukkah is "secular"? It appears then that we can paint menorahs on a plow blade but not the word "Jesus". Wave the BS flag.

Also this is a school oriented art project. How many atheists schools are there in Sioux Falls? Or Muslim?

You fail ... again.  Sleep

How does your statement prove any "failure" on my part?

The children that painted those snow plows "think" their art should be allowed on the plow. The "free" Thinkers don't agree. They do not believe in "free" thought.

They are the ones lying.
