The woods are all green in the summer. The trees are full of branches, none of which are straight and pushing into it all are these huge ivory colored planks of concrete; concrete isn’t natural. It’s man-made.
Fallingwater is far from “Organic with Nature” It’s a massive intrusion into the green woods. It uses red painted steel. No red in the trees in the woods. It uses layered stone unlike anthing found in nature. The stone is cut and chiseled and glued together into rectangular shapes. Need it be said that nature doesn’t make concrete?
Wright’s Fallingwater is a stupendous design that’s an engineering nightmare full of stupid design flaws from the failure to specify stainless steel for the wet environment to the complete failure of his oversized railings on the decks that caused cracks and a collapse that was only saved because some engineers worked up soloutions to the devilish Wright’s awful engineering failures. . Wright, a bone Fide genius without any competition or contemporaries, was a pretentious and bratty artist probably because he had to deal with so many bratty, pretentious ignorant clients and of course with the stupid media types and the public who could neither recognize nor understand Michaelangelo on Market street.
Look at the Guggenheim. A stupendous almost superhuman effort in the middle of Manhattan that will stop you in your tracks when you come upon it.
In yet another hit piece in a long procession of hit pieces against President Trump Maureen Dowd proves how dense she is. She wrote today that Trump will implode. She’s as dense as Mount Everest.
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani calls President Trump and tells him:
“Donald, I had a wonderful dream. I could see all of America and each house had a banner”.
“What did it say on the banners” Trump asked.
Rouhani replied: “United States Of Iran”.
Trump said: “You know Hassan, I’s happy you called because believe it or not, last night I had a similar dream. I could see all of Tehran and it was more beautiful than ever and on each house flew an enormous banner.”
” What did it say on the banners”Hassan asked.
trump replied: “I don’t know. I can’t read Hebrew”.
Barack just announced he’s working with the Virginia Democrat running for governor. That will add about ten points to the Republican.
The average Virginia voter is delighted the choice for governor became so clear. Obama made it far easier to figure out how to vote and unless the Virginia voters get drunk or high on election day Virginia will pull the election out of the tank for the Republicans. Republicans need to thank Obama for making the race about him.
Obama had his eight years. America can get back to normal and elect proper candidates. the Democrats need to tell wonder-boy to stay in Hawaii of Chicago where his brand of lying in the sun or just lying: “if you like your plan you can keep your plan” resonates with like minded people. The majority of Americans have been embarassed by Obama and they want to wake up and find the Obama nightmare is over.
Obama made Jimmie Carter’s “worst president” label his own. Carter is grateful. The Democrats need to move away from Obama if they want to win some elections. .
