Prez TP

Here's the story:

The White House has issued a "cease and desist" order to the Onion (satirical humor site) for using an image of the Presidential Seal on their web site. Well, we artists get mighty worked up over free speech rights, so I'm doing my part to protest. Bad taste though my usage may be, I do it to make a point: If this usage is OK, and this usage is OK, and this usage is OK, and this usage is OK, then so is the usage on The Onion. And so is mine.

Interesting point. But what many people forget is that free speech means you have the RIGHT to say what you want, not PROTECTION from the backlash of what you say. While I disagree with your message(heavily based on the respect for all presidents that have used the seal), I understand the point you are trying to get. Very intriguing.

*ahem* I only delete spam. But then, I also only put a controversial or politically charged image up once every hundred or so, if for nothing else than to wake myself up...Just couldn't say I was an artist if I didn't shake things up occasionally...
