hama7 : "What's more disturbing and outrageous with regard to this thread is that the owner and operator of this very website believes not only that rightfully denying visas to avowed enemies if the United States is an "Un-fucking-believable embarrassment", but also that individual specialized university education and health care should be paid for with other people's money through government theft and redistribution, and that Michael Moore's tired stream of Marxist cliches, racism and fomenting non-existent class warfare from a multi million-dollar home on New York's Upper West Side shows his "love" for his country."

But, you know, outsider art is OK. Big thumbs up!

I sense a situation where some kind of justification for juxtapotato is called for. Perhaps I'm wrong. You tell me.

My mom will love the Paul Pitt. She has a good collection of this style going.

Interesting. Translated to catalan, would read as "dirty art"...

The American Visionary Art Museum, in Baltimore, provides an excellent introduction to outsider/naive/visionary art.

If you thought about it, instead of making off-topic comments which amount to quotes from an unrelated thread, you'd realize that you are wrong.

Many thanks for your invaluable contribution.

Thanks mr_roboto for the excellent site. I wish I could trade that link for the one on the front page. Very nice.
