America’s Final Solution to the Native American “Problem”

I originally posted the following video and commentary onto my Facebook wall…

Final Solution:

My Commentary: “Tear the children from their people, then commence the massacre in its totality!”

Watching this video chokes me up. The American government truly engaged in one of the most successful acts of genocide in the history of mankind.

This video reveals the 11 steps that the US government took to destroy Indigenous culture:

1. Slash their hair
2. Strip their clothing
3. Ban their language
4. Abolish their very names
5. Regiment all movement
6. Promulgate the ideology of the whites
7. Terrorize and torture them
8. Rape them
9. Starve them
10. Work them at forced labor
11. Sicken them unto death

Asperger’s Syndrome to Be Phased Out of DSM-V and Folded Into “Autism Spectrum Disorder”

I originally posted the following information and commentary onto my Facebook wall…

The drawings of Daniel Tammet, above, who wrote the 2007 book “Born on a Blue Day,” about living with autism, show how he visualizes some numbers

A Powerful Identity, A Vanishing Diagnosis:
http://www.nytimes.com/2009/11/03/health/03asperger.html

(Claudia Wallis) It is one of the most intriguing labels in psychiatry. Children with Asperger’s syndrome, a mild form of autism, are socially awkward and often physically clumsy, but many are verbal prodigies, speaking in complex sentences at early ages, reading newspapers fluently by age 5 or 6 and acquiring expertise in some preferred topic — stegosaurs, clipper ships, Interstate highways — that will astonish adults and bore their playmates to tears.

In recent years, this once obscure diagnosis, given to more than four times as many boys as girls, has become increasingly common.

My Commentary: According to this article, “though [Asperger’s syndrome] became an official part of the medical lexicon only in 1994, the experts who are revising psychiatry’s diagnostic manual have proposed to eliminate it from the new edition, due out in 2012. If these experts have their way, Asperger’s syndrome (AS) and another mild form of autism, pervasive developmental disorder not otherwise specified (P.D.D.-N.O.S.), will be folded into a single broad diagnosis, autism spectrum disorder — a category that encompasses autism’s entire range, or spectrum,” from mild to severe.

Discussing My Artwork, “Torture is Terrorism”

The following correspondence originally took place on my Facebook wall, upon my artwork, “State-Sponsored Torture is Terrorism“…

Rayn: Created in January of 2009 using Photoshop.

"State-Sponsored Torture: Just Another Form of Terrorism" (by Rayn)

Sara: This makes me sick but sends a message that everyone needs to hear!

Rayn: Sickening, indeed. I started making this when Bush was in office, but didn’t finish until Obama was in. I wasn’t sure if I should put it up, at first, as I had a small twinkle of “hope” that things would “change.” However, I decided that, if anything, the timing was fine because this piece might inspire people to push our new president to investigate, prosecute and cease all abuses occurring at Guantanamo Bay’s Camp X-Ray, as opposed to the “under rug swept” mentality that might perpetuate these war crimes in future possible war scenarios.

Sadly, Obama did very little to change the situation, and later, began actively involving himself in the cover-up, by refusing to authorize the release of many more photos of abuse that were discovered after the original scandal broke headlines.

Discussing My Still Life Drawing, Using Black Charcoal

The following correspondence originally took place on my Facebook wall, upon my artwork, “Still Life Drawing, Using Black Charcoal Sticks“…

Rayn: Created in Spring 2000 for art class at Stony Brook University.

The assignment was to create a still-life illustration, based on an arrangement of objects placed in the center of the room, using black charcoal sticks on grey 18×24 paper.

Sara: Amazing how you captured the shading so well, the Kleipe’s always had a knack for drawing exactly what we see in front of us!
