Social Engineers by boshthehedgehog
Social Engineers
One thing that really irks me is politicians, particularly Democrats, who take it upon themselves to "fix" people's behaviors through government edict.  They do this by passing laws that aim to raise the cost of or regulate out of existence anything that they find undesirable.  This is what is known as "social engineering."

Here's the thing.  Real engineers are people who solve problems.  Social "engineers" do not.  They only create new problems, which is why I have a beef with people, again usually Democrats, who view their quest to modify society's norms and behaviors to try and fit their ideals as some great crusade.

Finally, before anyone says anything, I know that engineers are not perfect, and a few have made mistakes that led to their projects ending in disaster.  However, social "engineers" have a much worse track record for failure.  In conclusion, changing the landscape using math and science can raise the standard of living.  Trying to change people using government force only raises egos.

Kona
Here is a picture of my boxer, Kona.  Unfortunately, I, along with :iconsqueakynoodle: and the rest of the family, lost her on March 8, 2015, just after she turned ten years old a few days prior.  We were very lucky to have her as a part of our lives, for she was an absolute sweetheart who loved her family.  We hope that she rests in peace, and that God keeps her spirit safe.  We are going to miss her very much.  :(

This is something funny that happened in May of 2013--last year.  I'm driving with my mom and my sister to a track meet to watch my younger brother compete.  I've got the car radio going, and the song playing was "Somebody's Watching Me" by Rockwell.  For those who don't know, it was a one-hit wonder about a guy with paranoia.  Anyway, we're driving down the freeway and not thinking too much about the music.  Then, suddenly, my mom and I burst into laughter when we heard the following lyrics:

"Oh, what a mess I wonder who's watching me now
(Who?) the IRS?"

This was right after the IRS scandal broke out about the government agency targeting conservative and Tea Party groups during the 2012 election.  Apparently, Rockwell was right, and he wrote that song back in the 80's! :laughing:

I prefer to draw the old-fashioned way--with a pencil, paper, and colored pencils. The vast majority of my works have some element of humor to them. In regards to subject matter, I'll often make some sort of joke on one random topic, then transition to something completely different--kind of like on the show Robot Chicken.
