( In the Title I said the Art, but I guess I could also be Censored for heatedass subjects like Katrina&Bushwacking or some of my foul language...god forbid.. hide the children...)
So over the weekend I told a friend of a friend to go to Watergate Summer, told them to check the Google Results for some old features ( ie.Red Trucks & Watery Lies, Miracles in the Deep End, Gifts From Iraq: Walking Wounded and Road Kill). I told them that they just had to hit "Google" and then check the Results, that there were about 14 pages of them, enjoy. Well, at the time I was very much mistakened.
When they would google Watergate Summer, ALL that they found was one lonely title and one sample page, with a disclaimer on it saying google did not support or represent the work therein. HUH? WHAT the? ( I saved all of these pages obviously). So the friend let me know these"results", and How ALL Result pages were gone...So I followed up on this Missing Page Mystery, and it was indeed true. So I wrote to Google, in no Uncertain Terms I let them KNOW that I was Not Happy being CENSORED . I let them know I blog for FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND EXPRESSION. I Blog because I am an American Woman and WE still have a CONSTITUTION and this is still OUR Country.
PINUP GIRLS ARE PATRIOTIC.....
Now I also let them know that I think I might have been Censored by them because I post WOMEN, Lush Sensual Powerful Paintings of beautiful Women ( mostly Redheads) by Alberto Vargas, (Varga Girls) and also Lord Leighton. These men appreciated Beautiful Women, even the redheads. ( and yes, as a Redhead I am indeed grateful to these men for seeing us, as luscious). Now I have One Reason WHY I post These Women. When Ashcroft came to DC and Covered the Breasts of the Sisters of Justice, I made a commitment to always have Women on my blog that represented What he hated and feared most. Raw Real and Powerful. You won't find women on this blog Ever in starched collared shirts baking cakes and scrubbing toilets. NO. And Why? because that is what this Regime wants, women cleaning and cooking and SILENT and OBEDIENT to men and NOT reading or talking about WHAT matters.So on my Desktop I have a File called AssCroft's Nightmare, and I have been collecting beautiful women, solely for Watergate Summer. And yes, they do indeed grace the Blog-alot. I am proud of these women. In Spirit I am one of them.
NOW Reason Two, why I post these Women. The Pinup Girls have a Very patriotic history dating back to WWII. There were many Great Pinup artists (Armstrong,Runci, and more), but Vargas is indeed my favorite. Alberto Vargas painted most of these women in the 1940's he painted them to remember WHO the Real Women were, and he created them for Esquire magazine, they were called the Varga Girls.They became calendar girls and legends. The redhead Jeanne was one of his favorite models, and he painted her quite a bit.( Anna Mae his wife may have been a model too). Now the men and boys were overseas, and the Varga Girls became a Wonderful source of Inspiration and Morale. ( you can Google Varga or Vargas girls- they were listed as both). They became favored Pinup Girls, next to pictures of mom and girlfriends, it was not uncommon to find them in barrack walls or fighter planes. They also became favorites at Home where Women were fighting , by working the Men jobs at home and manning the shifts at factories. Vargas wanted people to see their Beauty and their Power. And yes, his vision of Women did indeed inspire our fighting men so much they are in the War Archives and military annals. Now I also have to admit that since I have a number of male readers and VETS I think that I am doing the right thing remembering Morale. Maybe that is Lovemongering of me, but so be it.( Better than the hatemongering,fearmongering, and terramongering crapola we are fed daily from all sides). I want Men and Women to feel good about themselves again and about their sensual sides, no more of this religous puritian crap. I want them to remember to feel Powerful in WHO they are, man or woman.
ENIGMA's EPILOGUE TO THE GOOGLE SAGA & The "Results":
So I wrote to Google and I also wrote to Keith Olbermann, and I sent both copies of letters I had sent the others about my feelings on Censorship and WHY I thought I was being censored. And 30 hours later Voila, MOST of the RESULT pages had been returned ( almost all) and Number 2 for Google results was my post "THANK YOU KEITH OLBERMANN". ( I am sure That is just Some Kind Fateful Coincidence.)So I am very very grateful to Google for repairing the ERROR and I guess maybe again for some reason I am ever grateful to Keith Olbermann.Keith Dinner is on me if you ever come to Cleveland.
