Activist Draws Penises Around Potholes To Get Roads Fixed

An anonymous activist and artist who goes by the name “Wanksy,” has developed a revolutionary way of getting the government to fix potholes in the road—he draws penises around them.

wanksy

I can only imagine that Wanksy’s name is based off of the famous artist and activist Banksy who drew hundreds of artistic artworks during Occupy Wall Street.

Wanksy’s way of fixing pot holes may seem unconventional, but it works. He has found that the city fixes the potholes after he spray paints then. He lives in Manchester, UK, and notes that his town’s city council is not very pleased with him. However, Wanksy said, “if they fix those potholes in the road he will have nothing to paint on.”

“If there were no potholes I wouldn’t draw on anything…
The road is my canvas.” Wanksy, wrote.

He further expresses that “all his work is created using non-permanent, chalk based line marker, the same type that the council uses when doing repairs.”

He continues, “the problem is that despite each and every vehicle owner in the land paying road tax, fuel tax and council tax, that money does not seem to be being spent on our roads, or at least not effectively.”

His service he says is because “potholes are dangerous. Not only do they wreck vehicles, cause accidents they also injure cyclists and are a danger to pedestrians.” Wanksy claims that “people shouldn’t be offended because his artwork is cartoons and not photographs,” and because “the anatomy is common place in art.”

“I understand the council are stretched and may not have time to highlight big potholes with yellow paint,
but luckily, I do :-)” Wanksy, wrote.

Wanksy explained why he uses penises specifically, saying, “potholes are very hard to see. You tend to forget about them until it’s too late. But draw a big yellow willy round it, you can’t help but notice them and hopefully avoid it too, saving the vehicle from damage or the rider from injury. Usually the council will either notice it, or it actually gets reported and then gets repaired.”

On Wanksy’s website, he answers some of the comments from people who have questions about why a grown man would draw childish penises around potholes as if he’s still in primary school. Some comments on his page even encourage him to take his artistic work overseas to the U.S.

Matthew Schmock of Wisconsin wrote:

“We need you in Madison, Wisconsin aka pothole hell.”

And others, such as Helen Heiki Piscoe, just want to express their support. Piscoe commented:

“Just like Van Gough’s water Lilly’s, another masterpiece. Society thanks you Wanksy, please keep up the fight.”

Who knew penises could save lives and cars? This is a prime example of how penises can be used to make our world a better place one road at a time! Just wait until this trend spreads—maybe then our governments will fix our roads. What are your thoughts?

Why draw penises on Potholes?

“Potholes are dangerous. Not only do they wreck vehicles and cause accidents, they also injure cyclists and are a danger to pedestrians.

I highlight dangerous potholes by turning them into temporary works of art, making them more visible and prompting the council to repair them.

The council is not too happy, but all my work is created using non-permanent, chalk based line marker, the same type the council use when doing repairs. The problem is that despite each and every vehicle owner in the land paying road tax, fuel tax and council tax, that money does not seem to be being spent on our roads, or at least not effectively.

I understand the council are stretched and may not have time to highlight big potholes with yellow paint,
but luckily, I do :-)”

How do the penises help people?

“Do I think my art is offensive? No. I am a qualified artist, the naked body and its anatomy are commonplace in art. The drawings themselves are cartoons, not photographs. Art should provoke a reaction and these pieces do that, generally a positive one.

Potholes are very hard to see you tend to forget about them until it’s too late. But draw a big yellow willy round it, you can’t help but notice them and hopefully avoid it too, saving the vehicle from damage or the rider from injury. Usually the council will either notice it, or it actually gets reported and then gets repaired.
Happy days.”

Is The Government Making Up Information About Hurricane Matthew ?

Is The Government Manufacturing Information About Hurricane Matthew?

As Hurricane Matthew has begun to come ashore in Florida, many people are beginning to ask some rather serious questions. Namely: Where is all the damage and cataclysmic loss of life? We should be happy, of course, at the low loss of life in Haiti (284 reported at time of posting). The damage expressed in pictures certainly isn’t the idea some of us may have had involving a category 4 storm. Again, we should feel fortunate, right?

The final death toll in Katrina was 1,836, it hit landfall in two modern American cities at a category 3 level on the sapphire-Simpson scale. Hurricane Matthew, a category 4 hits the island of Haiti, which is impoverished and vulnerable, and leaves behind only a few hundred deaths?

A Florida Man Crashes Live Hurricane Coverage to Declare ‘Dicks Out for Harambe’

The governor of Florida, Rick Scott, shut down half of Florida at the advice of weather officials. Early indications of the storm are images of people surfing and playing on the beaches of South Florida. The Hurricane was just off shore. A powerful category 4 just off shore and people went to the beach? Officials are saying this is due to the “weak side” of the storm’s interaction with South Florida. That may be true, but things are starting to seem a little odd.

South Carolina Governor Calls for Mandatory Evacuation before Hurricane.

In this now viral video Fox News anchor Shepard Smith on Hurricane Matthew says: “you and everyone you know are DEAD and your kids DIE too”. Shepard Smith absolutely fear-mongering warns of Matthew. “and your kids die, too’.

The Fox News anchor proclaims to those in Hurricane Matthew’s path the hurricane “will be dead because you can’t survive it”. The full broadcast avail [here].

Across the south eastern United States shelves are empty as people flood the stores to stock up encase of a major catastrophe, or market shut down.

Is Hurricane Matthew really a category 4, or is this all a ruse to make a point about climate change?

Matt Drudge posted some Tweets that has got the internet buzzing.

Congress Passes Emergency Bill To Prevent Government Shut Down

The U.S. Congress approved a stop-gap funding bill late Wednesday night that averts a looming federal government shutdown and accord to the main-stream media “provides urgently needed money to help battle an outbreak of the Zika virus.”

Averting an election-year crisis, Congress sent President Barack Obama a bill to keep the government operating through Dec. 9 and provide $1.1 billion in to reportedly battle the Zika virus.

The House cleared the measure by a 342-85 vote. Passage of the bipartisan legislation came shortly after Republicans and Democrats ended a months-long fight over whether Washington should provide aid to the city of Flint, Michigan, as it struggles with a crisis over contaminated drinking water.

The spending measure was the Hill’s last major to-do item before the election in November, and its completion keeps the U.S. government operating from Oct. 1, the start of the new fiscal year, until Dec. 9, and allows lawmakers to jet home in order to campaign to save their jobs.

The bill caps months of wrangling over money to being used to fight the mosquito-borne Zika virus, and also includes $500 million for rebuilding assistance to flood-ravaged Louisiana and other states, however to the informed citizen these additions are only there to make this late season debt increase more acceptable.

The White House said Obama will sign the measure and praised the progress on Flint.

The temporary spending bill sped through the House shortly after the chamber passed a water projects bill containing the breakthrough compromise on Flint. The move to add the Flint package to the water projects bill, negotiated by top leaders in both parties and passed Wednesday by a 284-141 vote, was the key to lifting the Democratic blockade on the separate spending bill.

The deal averts a potential federal shutdown and comes just three days before deadline. It defuses a lengthy, frustrating battle over Zika spending. Democrats claimed a partial victory on Flint while the GOP-dominated Louisiana delegation won a down payment on Obama’s $2.6 billion request for their state.

The politicking and power plays enormously complicated what should have been a routine measure to avoid an election-eve government shutdown.

ANDREW TAYLOR, ASSOCIATED PRESS.

The temporary government-wide spending bill had stalled in the Senate Tuesday over Democrats’ demands that the measure include $220 million in Senate-passed funding to help Flint and other cities deal with lead-tainted water. The Flint issue arose as the final stumbling block after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., added the flood aid for Louisiana to the spending bill.

Democrats argued it was unfair that the water crisis in Flint has gone on for more than a year with no assistance, while Louisiana and other states are getting $500 million for floods that occurred just last month. Democrats played a strong hand in the negotiations and had leverage because Republicans controlling the House and Senate were eager to avoid a politically harmful shutdown six weeks before the election.

In a series of carefully orchestrated maneuvers after the Senate approved the temporary funding, the House passed a wide-ranging water resources bill containing $170 million to assist Flint by a vote of 399-25.

Democrats have demanded action on the crisis, which stems from dangerous levels of lead in Flint’s drinking water.

A Senate version of the bill contains $220 million for Flint and other cities with problem water systems.

The two chambers will have to hammer out compromise legislation after the Nov. 8 presidential and congressional elections. Wednesday’s flurry of activity in Congress came as lawmakers rushed to recess this week until after the elections.

Flint’s drinking water became tainted when the city, then under state control, began drawing from the Flint River in 2014 to save money. Regulators failed to ensure the water was treated properly and lead from aging pipes leached into the water supply. As many as 12,000 children have been exposed to lead in water, officials say.

There were other winners and losers in the scramble to produce the legislation.

Ted Cruz, R-Texas, failed to win a provision to block the U.S. government from transferring the Commerce Department’s role in governing the internet’s domain name addressing systems to a nonprofit consortium known as ICANN.

And Democrats failed to use the bill to reverse a ban engineered last year by McConnell on proposals to allow the Securities and Exchange Commission to require publicly-traded corporations to disclose political spending permitted under the Supreme Court’s 2010 decision allowing unlimited political spending by businesses.

The spending bill also includes full-year funding for the Department of Veterans Affairs. That measure permits veterans with war injuries to receive in vitro fertilization treatments. A longtime ban on such treatments — demanded in the early 1990s by anti-abortion lawmakers concerned about destroyed embryos — has been lifted.

Gang Members Implicate U.S. Gov’t in Dumping Crates of Guns in Chicago

Reported on by. Isaac Davis, Staff Writer For The Waking Times

There is a well-documented history of the U.S. government supplying weapons and arms to both friends and foe for political purposes and for profit. In addition to publicly known global arms deals to U.S. political allies like Israel and Saudi Arabia, revelations about the rise of ISIS indicate that U.S. arms and military trainees have been a critical factor in the rise of the terror group.

From 2006 to 2011 the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms ran a gun smuggling operation into Mexico to ostensibly dismantle Mexican drug gangs, accomplishing the precise opposite however, in what has affectionately become known as Fast and Furious. Further back in time we have covert operations like Oliver North’s Iran Contra scandal of the mid 1980’s, and America’s involvement in arming rebels in Central America to destabilize uncooperative governments. The list goes on.

Former L.A. police narcotics officer Michael Ruppert alleged in the mid 1990’s that the CIA was directly involved in running drugs throughout the Unites States, corroborating information presented in the book, Dark Alliance, by investigative journalist Gary Webb whose death in 1994 by two gunshot wounds to the head was deemed a suicide. Michael Ruppert committed suicide in 2014.

“I will tell you, Director Deutch,” Ruppert said, “emphatically and without equivocation that the agency has dealt drugs throughout this country for a long time.” ~Mike Ruppert

‘Freeway’ Ricky Ross was California’s most successful drug kingpin during the explosion of the crack epidemic in the 1980’s, and later implicated the CIA as the source for cocaine. Presidents Reagan, Bush Sr. and Bill Clinton are all implicated in the revelations of drug-running in the U.S. during the ’80’s an ’90’s in Mena, Arkansas, which also links the Arkansas State Police to smuggling, culminating in the suspicious murder of Vince Foster.

Again, the list goes on and on, however with the recent rise of violence in Chicago involving over 3000 shooting victims in 2016 so far (January 1st to September 13th), it appears that another case of U.S. sponsored gun-smuggling and intentional destruction of inner-city communities may be at play.

In a publicly available video testimony an ex-Chicago gang member describes how crates of fully automatic firearms would regularly be found in alley ways and back streets of urban Chicago at the early hours of the morning, giving free, illegal weapons to the gangs of Chi-Town, which is now often referred to as Chiraq because it is a war zone.

He refers to it as a diabolical plot, a plan, affecting only low-income areas, pointing out that many of the firearms being found were class-3 automatic firearms, which can only be purchased at certain retailers under intense federal scrutiny. He notes that criminals aren’t allowed to buy firearms in the first place, yet the guns are everywhere, so where are they coming from?

Watch the full interview here:

BBC News recently produced a short documentary about gun violence in Chicago with gang members saying things such as, ‘it’s like crates of guns got dropped off.

Chicago has some of the strictest gun restrictions in the United States with some of the highest rates of gun violence. Gang members are not buying them legally, and the police are pulling guns off the street on a daily basis, so where are they coming from?

Something doesn’t add up.
