Beautiful Quotes of Thomas Paine:

* Every science has for its basis a system of principles as fixed and unalterable as those by which the universe is regulated and governed. Man cannot make principles; he can only discover them.

* I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. ‘Tis the business of little minds to shrink, but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles unto death.

* He that would make his own liberty secure, must guard even his enemy from oppression; for if he violates this duty, he establishes a precedent that will reach to himself.

* It is not a God, just and good, but a devil, under the name of God, that the Bible describes.

You Can’t Unsee This Giant Parade Float of President Trump as an Emperor ‘Master-Drone’.The Trump float is called “The Master-Drone” and was made by artist Fabrizio Galli, who has made similar sculptures that satirize other political figures.

By HELEN MURPHY| February 19, 2019 02:53 PM

A giant papier-mâché float of President Donald Trump has been making waves at one of Italy’s famous Carnival events this month.

The sculpture, which shows the president decked out as an emperor, complete with cape and sword, is appearing at the Carnevale Di Viareggio festival held in Viareggio each year during Carnival, an annual festival season before Lent.

This year’s festivities — which includes a weekly parade of large, elaborate paper-mâché floats that often have a political message — mark the 146th year of the event. It attracts more than 600,000 spectators each year, according to the official parade website.

The Trump float is called “The Master-Drone” and was created by artist Fabrizio Galli. Galli has made similar sculptures that satirize political figures in the past, including North Korea’s Kim Jong-un and Russian President Vladimir Putin 

“The Master-Drone” shows the president in golden battle armor, including a sword covered in blue birds fashioned after the Twitter logo and a gold crown. He also has a large clawed hand.

On the float, an American eagle can be seen on one of Trump’s shoulders while Putin’s head rests on the other. The Statue of Liberty appears on one of his knees.
