Re: “Looking back: Pride art show honors 50th anniversary of Stonewall

It is in the nature of democracies that previously repressed minorities to tend to clamor for more and more rights up to and often well beyond the point where they begin to impinge on the rights of the majority; but at some point the majority starts pushing back. By now it can be stated with some certainty that in the view of the majority the LGBT movement has gone too far. Opinion surveys attest to this fact: LGBT support crested at well over 50% but has been dropping by roughly 10% per year for several years now.

Re: “Group Show at Cuesta's Harold J. Miossi Gallery tests the limits of the art world

Art or narcissism? It's always hard to tell in late stage capitalism.

Re: “SLOMA executive director retires after 20 years

Fare thee well, Karen Kile. You have been such a blessing to the community all these years. I remember when you helped the Earth Day Coalition with our first Recycled Art exhibition. We thought it would be a small thing, but more than 1,000 people brought their beautiful, quirky, unusual creative endeavors, and you not only helped with the judging but had the walls and stands painted and then displayed the artwork in recognition that it was 'real' art. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Karen!

Re: “SLO Jewish Film Fest screens 'Miss Representation'

Forgive me for stating the obvious but isn't the American film industry in general a Jewish film festival? Seems redundant that's all.

Re: “Veterans' Voices exhibit celebrates patriots, artists

When you go off and see a bit of the world you gain the wisdom of seeing the people of the world as one. You also witness the inequality, the injustices, and inhumanity not exclusive to foreign soil...Lynn Schmidt has turned this first hand soldiering experience into Art. A picture can say a thousand words and "Forks" does this so eloquently.

Re: “Veterans' Voices exhibit celebrates patriots, artists

Wonderful story and I look forward to seeing the exhibit next week. That being said, this statement is disconcerting: "I think if somebody is going to put their life on the line and serve their country, I don't know why anyone would want to stop them," Schmidt said. "These people are willing to sacrifice their lives for their country..." I would submit that people in the military do not "serve their country", they serve the corporate, warmongering, war profiteering elite on the backs, bodies and misery of others throughout the world. At which point along the continuum does a person become responsible for their actions in facilitating and or being complicit in war crimes and crimes against humanity in wars based on lies? Following orders does not take away the blame. It was thus for me in 71', and it remains so today...

Great post, Glenn. Too bad too many drank the Koolaid Mr.Trump handed out.

Could you please use environmentally-friendly glitter? The microplastics are really affecting our environment in a horribly negative manner.

Re: “SLO photographer captures different takes on the same places

Forages of the frame or four edges of the frame?

Re: “Local author and illustrator strive to teach children about tolerance with 'Different Is The Same'

Both Cooleys articles begin with a reference to "after the 2016 election". The Trump butthurt is strong here.
As if everything in the world all of a sudden changed for the fake progressives. These are the most comfortable people on the planet and yet their world was rocked by a common political event that hasn't changed anything. Goes to show how weak minded and easily manipulated the wine drinking coastal class is.

Re: “Common Ground 2019 at Studios on the Park brings artists together to reflect and heal

"as a woman i feel disposable" hahaha, wait until you figure out what it feels like to be a man, I don't get paid to finger paint. This reminds me of how much I hate living in SLO. Where does she get the money to have an "art collective" or whatever its called, trips to Wyoming to mellow out bro. Must be nice never growing up. If you feel disposable then get a husband.

I am proud to call this man my Brother-in-law. He maybe doesn't know it, but much of his work has inspired me and given this old woodworking Norwegian direction.
