1. When clinton got in i was happy because it was my generation; i thought
things would change for the better.
he, bush and Obama — my generation — have all been the worst presidents of my lifetime — a non-stop spiral to hell for the country and inequality as bad as its been in a century.
fuck them all — I’ve had dogs that would have done better
figures that iconic poster was done by an “artist” specializing in stealing the work of others – whos also a money grubbing hypocrite
Legal issues with appropriation and fair use
Fairey has been criticized for failing to obtain permission and to provide attribution for works he used. Fairey has threatened to sue artists for the same technique. Austin, Texas-based graphic designer Baxter Orr did his own take on Fairey’s work in a piece called Protect, with the iconic Obey Giant face covered by a SARS respiratory mask. Orr marketed the prints as his own work. On April 23, 2008, Orr received a cease-and-desist order from Fairey’s attorneys, telling him to stop selling Protect because it violated Fairey’s trademark. Fairey threatened to sue, calling the designer a “parasite”.
In October 2009 Shepard Fairey admitted he had tried to deceive the Court by destroying evidence that he had instead used the photograph alleged by the AP. Fairey admitted he had used a close-up shot of Obama, also taken by Mannie Garcia, as the AP had long alleged. The solo photo appears much more similar to the final HOPE poster than the photo of Clooney and Obama.
That’s what money grubbers do steal and lie and try to hide their amorality
an art fraud hyping a political fraud
most people in the public eye seem to be frauds these days
Hillary, Obama, fairey
Bernie seems the only real person out there

3. Plus One! Clinton, Bush and Obama are professional obfuscators.
That means they’re something else altogether, something even more sinister."The NSA’s capability at any time could be turned around on the American people, and no American would have any privacy left, such is the capability to monitor everything. There would be no place to hide." Frank Church "When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men in society, over the course of time they create for themselves a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it." - Frederic Bastiat, 1848
