Poster Outrage -

Poster Outrage -

I ran across this interesting article about a poster depicted President Obama as the Joker and all of the outrage that has come from it.

Last year, President Bush was depicted as the Joker in Vanity Fair. There was very little outrage. In fact, very little was said by most Republicans and it was taken in stride.

To be quite honest, I really don't appreciate this type of poster of a President. But, I do realize that people are entitled to say what's on their minds. I am a firm believer of the 1st Amendment to the Constitution of the United States.

Over the past couple of months, I have had more and more abusive comments about my observations of politics. I have refused to post those that have been extremely abusive and obscene. I have also realized a few that been very good in stimulating debate. I really appreciate those. The best thing we can do as Americans is to openly discuss problems and work to a solution without being mean-spirited.

For those of you who have been submitting your comments in the spirit of intellectual debate, I thank you.
