    In actual dollars, President Obama’s $4.4 trillion in deficit spending in just three years is 37 percent higher than the previous record of $3.2 trillion (held by President George W. Bush) in deficit spending for an entire presidency. It’s no small feat to demolish an 8-year record in just 3 years.

    Under Obama’s own projections, interest payments on the debt are on course to triple from 2010 (his first budgetary year) to 2018, climbing from $196 billion to $685 billion annually.

    Museum/'artist'(i use the term loosely) say that the (f)artwork won't go back on display. And they wring their hands and wipe away a tear lamenting that free expression (THEIRS, NOT YOURS) has been dealt a serious blow.

    these cretins are the most despicable and hypocritical two faced lying spawns of vileness.

    That might be overstating it somewhat. Loveland is trying to reinvent itself as a cultural center. They just haven't settled on which culture yet.

    The more "real" reason the museum is backing out might have to do with the foundries in the area. Loveland is a real little hotbed of custom metal-casting and metal sculpture. Artistic vision doesn't really pay the bills for those metal-working operations but church commissions for bells, statues, tabernacles, fonts, stations of the cross, and other religious items do.

    They've been getting some backlash from local artists who don't depend on academic or government grants. ;)

    So here's some more information about the exhibit, including a photo of the piece in question:

    heads up before you click the link: it is pretty much what they've been saying it is.

    come on. Let's stop playing the games. We all know what the pix are representative of. The artist knows this full well. I hardly think this will stop the 'museum' or future 'art' exhibits of this kind. Colorado is...well. they really are getting so leftis. I hate that. You expect better of the western United States.
