Now, as to WHY the nation gets all het up about silly, trivial things, when their is a war on, when our ambasadors abroad are killing people, or when the govenment is under huge scrutiny about various underhand dealings with extreemist X-tians.....The housing estate where I live is full of crack-heads but no one marches to help all the poor frightened people that have been mugged or robbed or beaten up.... or worse...."

Probably the same for government too..
'So hard to get noticed these days, though.... init.'Fallacy of Misplaced Misanthropy' is what that artist's got a case of and NOT political awareness IMHO
