    Liberals are up in arms over public funds being spent on art. I guess some tax money being spent on art is bad after all.

    Its not just liberals opposing this fuck.

    I can not believe SF paid money to a man who shot a dog as "art" to do public sculptures.

    Many artists are wacko.
    And a lot of art is not.

    I have killed a few dogs, but for good reason not to call it art.

    This really tells me Endowment to the Artz should be eliminated from the federal budget. Crap like this guy has no business getting any funds for his so called talent.

    My mother shot a rabbit. Then she cooked him up and we had him for dinner.

    There has communist public art being displayed all over NYC, especially in the subway. You'll see mini statues of fat people wearing suits and clutching money bags, next to a statute of someone scrubbing the floor. It very subtle, and I'm not sure how effective, but the message of the art is clear.

    They put the icon of Christian identity, the Crucifix in a vat of urine and called it art and nobody complained and they took a statue of the Virgin Mary and smeared it with animal feces and nobody complained. A dead dog as art? It can't be worse than Jackson Pollack's puke. Get a life.

    The most shallow comparison I've ever witnessed.

    EDIT: never mind, my mistake.

    Shallow means approval doesn't it, especially when it comes to pop-art. Don't make me bring up the gang of factory workers in Warhol's corrupt pop-culture society. It makes a dead dog smell good.
