The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    I get it I think.

    The stars on the left represent America.

    In the top star America is small and the oil supply is large.

    In the next scene America has grown and the oil supply has shrunk but America is still happy (blue).

    The third scene shows a depleted or threatened oil supply and America is angry (red.)

    Is this correct?

    Where's my money?

    Yeah you got that one.

    That one too

    Yep.

    The third scene shows a depleted or threatened oil supply and America is angry (red.)

    This one you got wrong. The America is red because of 9/11. Red represents fire. Do you know about Imperialism? that is what the painting is about. America taking advantage of the smaller countries. And what happens after you pick on one country is most cases or a person for that matter. They blow up in this case part of America got blown up.

    Is this correct?

    Where's my money?

    You missed the big picture you get no money
    So what do you guys think of my idea for my next painting?

    yeah, those poor little countries that we dumped billions of dollars into. We don't even take care of our homeless or destitute populations as of this moment, yet we still pour billions and billions into other countries

    That's shallow.
    Draw a picture of a woman eating her afterbirth, then ask us to find a meaning. Using what equates to Microsoft Clip-Art ain't ANY decent kind of art.

    Not to mention we allow almost anyone (or DID allow) that wants to move to the US to start a "better" life.

    Sometimes it does amaze me at how some countries think we screw everybody over. Simply amazing.
    peace-

    i said it was a sketch, a computer sketch of my next peace so i can see the colours and stuff. And even if it was like it was you cannot say it's not art. Art can be anything you want it to be a woman eating her afterbirth is art. So your argument is a little weak.

    "I'm a history teacher fool. "
    I didn't even know your a history teacher so i see no reason for you to call me a fool. I dont want to be rude or anything. If your a history teacher i'd think you would know how to communicate your point instead of colling me a fool.

    BennetBoy and Accipter - Really i dont see why america goes and helps other countires without even being asked for help. If they ask for help and the recieave then i think america is doing something good, no great. But when they go and help for their personal gains i think tha is shallow and shouldn't happen. If you help ask in they need help.

    I've very thankfull for all of your replys it shows how much my peace has touched your big american egos.

    Just as beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so to is art in the eye of the beholder. Gyno, your example of the afterbirth eating mother would be a truely sickening sight, and I would not consider it art.

    I think that many of today's 'artists' are too busy trying to gross out the public or bring about some kind of outrage rather then actually creating anything worth while. A jar filled with urine with a crucified Christ in it is not art, it is just someones cry for attention.

    Art has become such a joke these days, that the joke is when a person at an art showing comes across a fire extinguisher, they wonder what the 'artists' intentions were for that piece...

    You wouldn't consider it art? I'd certainly claim it would be thought-provoking and unique. I'd call it art, surely. There may just be an interesting meaning behind it. It could represent the animalistic nature of man only being repressed and not being transformed into the civil idea of a human. You think a cavewoman that's friggin' hungry didn't eat her afterbirth to survive? I'd bet she did. A picture of a fire extinguisher, eh?

    No, a real fire extinguisher on the wall - as in, it is supposed to be there in case of a fire, and someone spotted it and thought it was part of the exhibit.

    OK, how about the commercial where the guy is waiting for his girlfriend at the art show, he takes a seat on a bench and then brings out his bottle of Miller Genuine Draft. Instead of opening it, he sits and contemplates it. Soon, he is cordoned off as an art exhibit himself... Stupid...

    What I think is funny is how most of these artists and art connoiseurs hold themselves as intellectually elite to the rest of us. Talk about snobbery, todays modern artist is probably one of the worst...

    We had an art exhibit here in Phoenix a number of years ago that centered around the American Flag. These oh-so-thought-provoking 'artists' had the flag set up in a variety of ways, but the two that come to mind were where the flag was placed on the ground in front of another exhibit so that people would walk on it(wow, thats special), and then there was another exhibit where the flag was shown hanging out of a toilet bowl. How truely thought provoking! What amazing insight, what incredible talent, and especially what a show of artistic skills that artist showed in this piece of supposed art.

    Hey, what any artist wants to do with his time and his materials is fine by me, but the problem in the states is that they want the federal government giving them money for these pieces of 'art', because the mainstream public see it for what it is - 'crap' - and won't be caught dead paying for it.

    GJ - i do agree with you that alot of artists do get off easy these days. But if they put alot of effort and thinking into the art and come up with a unique way of expressing themselves that is what i think is unique. Look at andy warhol at first he was a good artists expressing himself but after he got obsessed with the attenation he was getting and couldn't stop ans started mass producing his art. I dont even want to call it art, he sold out to the public. To me art is realistic being able to paint the "soul" of the person in his face. Art is also expressing how you feel through normal everyday common objects.

    I never staited that America stepped over countries to get to the top. Russia did that before and still doing it partally as well. I'm not a hipacrist (spell check, sorry guys if my spelling sucks i'm going to fast) I can't say that America stepped over other countries because i dont know enough of American history. But during the last 30 or so years i see alot more of America involved in somones issues because of their oil and buisnesses. I dont want to go in depth cus thats just to much typing. But thats how i see the world as in my last few years.
