I for one find fine mechanical devices to be a form of art with utility. Fortunately, In America we are free to collect and appreciate this form of art. Instead of a piece of canvas on the wall, I have finely engraved mechanical masterpieces in my collection. Not only do I see an economic return on my investment, but I can always call upon it to defend my family from anyone who may try to cause us harm.

Those that see a firearm as only an instrument of evil fail to understand; evil lies with those that choose to use it to commit a crime, not in an inanimate object.

Wallpaper Other by iwan04 7 comments

Unfortunately, your artwork is being rated poorly due to "American" in its name. I was going to post a comment about this, but noticed that you were from Germany and figured people would cut you some slack. I guess I figured wrong. I am trying very hard not to dislike all French, Germans etc. for being so anti-United States. I understand that not all western Europeans feel this way and your post serves to remind me of this fact. However, as an American, I see a growing resentment and distain for Europeans. We have been willing to die by the thousands to help Europe in two world wars. If Europeans are not careful, I'm not sure there will be enough support to assist, if needed , again.

How about a wallpaper making fun of Jews. We all hate the Jews, right? How about one poking fun at Islamics? Better yet, how about one making fun of Hinduism? They're a funny bunch.

Sarcasim aside, why is it that these wallpapers would all be considered crossing a line, but with Christianity it seems ok?

Don't Hide the Light! (Matt. 5:14,15)

Wallpaper Other by timbrown527 21 comments

With all respect mbiker35, asking, requesting or suggesting for someone to move on somewhere else to post is just candy coating censorship. For example, if I choose to make my black students/coworkers uncomfortable or unwelcomed to the point that they go somewhere more "comfortable", I have indeed censored or removed them nonetheless. While this may be a mild form of censorship or coercion, the end result is the same. That is the removal of views, content,opinions or people that one does not agree with. This is very dangerous and in most countries against the law in the public arena.

I suggest that we learn from history how this has lead to the persecution of whole groups i.e. blacks,Jews, Islamics and now I suggest, Christians.

Your point that there may be a "better" place to post his artwork suggests that this would be better for you, not necessarily for Tim. The artist does not require your permission or mine before creating or posting work. The artist has a duty to remain true to his or herself. Sometimes art is well received and sometimes it is not. That is what makes art so provocative and stimulating. It challenges us to reexamine our own values and ideals. It either causes one to change their postion or solidify their previously held beliefs, the result is personal growth!

Those that vote up Tim's work is indeed in the minority. However, what mbiker35 and those that agree with him fail to understand is minority voices, views and artistist expression should be protected and have an equal right to those who would be in the majority. To put it simply, if only art that the majority likes are permitted to post then we do not have "free speech" or a free forum. This can be a dangerous situation for your view point as well since you may one day be in the minority.

There is an expression used in the video cutting/editing room, "if it doesn't hurt, then your not editing". Well folks, "if it doesn't hurt, then its not free speech". Many in Europe may have difficulty in grasping the "American" concept of freedom of speech. Even us Americans debate what is and what is not considered speech. Tim's work is clearly appreciated, used and wanted by many, albeit a minority of KDE users.

I too feel your pain. I too hurt when I see, in my opinion, an ignorant socialist post content that I disagree with. Just remember, that it is "free speech" that will one day protect your own content. - Jan 28 2004

I like it. It provides a familar look that will make MS users more comfortable in their migration to Gnu/Linux. However, the Linux nuts will no doubt treat you with contempt. Remember, most that claim to want choice really mean they want others forced to accept theirs.

Themes such as this will permit me and others to set up low cost hosts that any MS users can sit down at and be productive from the start. Please keep up your work in this area. It is needed if Linux ever hopes to attract some of the 95% that use Windows. - Jan 24 2004

I agree with the misuse of the term Nazi. It comes from the improper/over use of the term by many liberals. For example, George Bush is a Nazi, John Ashcroft is a Nazi, Big oil are Nazis, Fox news are Nazis etc. Is it any wonder that our kids start to use it improperly as well? or they start to associate the term for anything they think is "bad" or disagree with.

On the low score. We can agree that this is not the best posted here, but for this to have been in the 30's is simply unjustified. If you really do not believe that the majority of posters to this site tend to be liberal (sorry, progressive)then you are either new or unwilling to accept the facts. A low score without suggestions for improvement is an indicator of the reponders "knee jerk" reacting to the content or image. For example, Tim's Christian artwork or my own negative ratings for anything that is Satanic, socialist or porn related.

I don't care about those damn chinks or about those damn towel heads over in Iraq. I don't care about those being persecuted in North Korea. I don't care about those with Aids in Africa. Wait a miniute, I'm starting to sound as compasionate and caring as the enlightened liberals. :-(

It is truly sad when a man drawing attention to those being persecuted is himself attacked by so called enlightened people.

Even if you don't agree with his religious views, you must agree that this situation in China should be stopped.

By the way, the Bible speaks of the importance of hand washing thousands of years prior to our surgeons doing so. This suggests that there was an understanding of microbiology and pathology long before "modern science" learned the value of this simple act.

I really like your last few wallpapers. Even the ones that don't like your message are starting to acknowledge these as making good use of the Gimp. I personally feel that this style or presentation for your message is the most effective. After all, many of those that study the sciences eventually come to the conclusion that the world is too orderly to not have a designer. Those that do not believe tend to accept statements from the scientific community more than those from us humble believers. The more they see the scientific community express their faith and belief in the creator, the more likely they will too. - Oct 22 2003

Very well said. For someone to claim that socialism and freedom belongs in the same sentence would be funny if it was not such a dangerous assumption. The crum catchers of society always fall prey to the allure of socialism. It appeals to their envy of those that have more and promises a system that takes from others to give to them, in their eyes fair. This is very attractive for those that are lazy or lack the willingness to work to improve their own situation. I look at socialism much like a pyramid or ponzi scheme. They keep taking from the "haves" to give to the "have nots". Once the benefits for working hard (yes, greed is a motivator)is inadequate compensation, they begin to be less productive. After all, why work your ass off if they take 75%-90% of what you earn to give to someone that sleeps till noon. Once the people on the "teat" out number the teat's compacity to produce milk, it starts to collaspse. This is where the dictatorships begin to enter the picture. They now must force this system onto their people. Unfortunately, by the time this happens they have given up so much of their freedom i.e. right to bear arms, they are helpless to fight back.
If you choose socialism than I wish you the best, but don't come to the "Great Satan" to bail your sorry ass out when the truth finally sets in. "Peace Out " - Oct 10 2003

Perhaps this site will be better off without you? I find it funny that those that profess tolerance seem to be the most intolerant. Tim's artwork is progressing very well. Further, I think he is performing a service to the community. I understand that this is a message that many do not want to hear. It makes you uncomfortable. The thought of being held accountable one day for our actions is very scarry. However, art(good & bad) provokes thought. From what I have seen here, Tim's work has done just that.

I disagree. The power of superkaramba is that it enables the average (nongeek) person the ability to customize their desktop. It may be a full blown eye candy party with scripts galore or a minimal display of system information. The botton line is that this will be useful for some people, especially those with minimal resources and that makes it worth posting here. We should be encouraging people to create more themes and offer constructive critisism for their further development.
Have you posted anything? Your probably like me. No time, no talent and no desire to construct a theme ourselves. I suggest we both keep that in mind when we comment on other's work. :) - Jul 23 2003

I think one of the things that is holding back gnu/linux from wide spread adoption is the view that it is the os of the poor, or envious socialists and/or communists. After all, one only needs to look at a few linux related web sites to realize that there is a strong loathing of capitalism in the linux community. This is unfortunate since linux has a lot to offer. As a proud capitalist/Republican, I see linux and the open source option as a way to practice good stewardship with the public's money. Our public insitutions should make every effort to find a free/low cost open source solution prior to purchasing expensive proprietary software. Not because they are anti-capitalist or following the linux religion, but as a way of efficiently using the funds intrusted to them. As a community of alternative os users, if we are not careful this could become the new mascot whether we like it or not.

Newsflash: apparantly our Army has not recieved this message. They just spent nearly 500 million dollars with Microsoft. The could have used opensource software and had enough money left over to buy 1/3 of a stealth bomber. I guess their loss is Iran's gain. - Jun 26 2003
