| For American capitalism to work we need wealth and profit caps, without these we will suffer greed gone wild and the death of the middle class, once the middle class dies there will be no connection between the wealthy and the poor, meaning the only way for the poor to survive will be through slavery [aka] minimum wage without benefits, which will lead to rebellion... We must also stop unfair tax laws meant to allow the wealthy an escape from fair taxation.|
or History repeats itself...
*wealth caps = a set cap on indivual wealth. my suggestion: 50 million to 1 billion cap with overages used toward community betterment programs.
*profit caps = a set cap applied to allowable profits on goods and services. My suggestion: [goods- approximately 3x the base cost], [services- approximately 4x the minimum hourly wage] <- equals a fair profit and fair price.

| Contest and Good time smiles |
A good time smile finds my face even though i lost the race.
A memory made is the greatest prize, win or lose at least I tried.
Onto the next great adventure I go, maybe this time... who really knows?
I wanted to show a positive way to look at contest because many people feel rejected in the end via the natural limitation of how many winners" there can be in the contest [being there are only so many prizes available]... I wanted to also point out that it is always a matter of taste with art and contest based on the arts, there are no losers if everyone tries their personal best... Remember judges are people too, just like us contestants, and just like us they have likes and dislikes and they are just as entitled to act on them as we are. Not winning is not an insult, it just means the work did not line up with the taste of the judges. Never forget we all created a new work that was inspired by the contest to add to our galleries as well we all got some nice exposure along the way.

Who am I? I am whatever my imagination allows me to be. I also happen to be a 41 year old kid with too many things to do and not enough time to do them. My name is Calliope Reeves Alien Budd, Born in Eden, North Carolina and raised in Asheville, North Carolina USA. I received a degree in Graphic Arts & Advertising Design from South Western Community College in Sylva, NC, USA class of 1992. I joined DeviantArt March 23 of 2009 sharing my art for the 1st time with the online world. I joined Redbubble as CReevesABudd in December 2009, and now I am on Zazzle as of February 2010. I am also on Shadowness.com |
What's my Artistic passion? To learn all I can and expand my abilities to better the connection of my imagination vs my hands limitations.
Why did I get into art? I have always been into art, I can't imagine my life without it...
How do you inspire yourself? everything in life offers some form of inspiration, I have found my biggest challenge is getting started. I set goals for myself daily to create something new to get past the starting point.
Where would you like to see yourself in 5 years? Above ground, outside of that I would love to have the ability to improve my life through my art <aka> making money on it... I have always dreamed of publishing my own art book of my life's works.
