Chrissy, I had been about to praise your cartooning skills, when I thought, oh, no, wait, wait, that caricature of the traitor in chief, with those ears on his neck, looks like Ramirez’ work.
Seriously, regret calling you on a poster again. (And, Ramirez is an unmistakable style!) Know you have no violatin’ intent.
But.. reminds me of a story (whips out grampaw hat and worn corncob pipe)… I was “complimented” by having a cartoon of mine from the high school paper lifted and re-captioned by another school paper. Forty-five years ago,., the heady days when my work was popular. 😦
Speaking of cartoons, are the smilies-images on WordPress now too big for anyone else? I’m on Windows, running Opera browser, and the smilies all recently became too big for their boxes, by about 200%. (If you’re not seeing it, this must sound pretty strange.) 🙄
Smileys okay on my screen. Yes I shamelessly stole and altered Ramirez’ cartoon. Now you’re making me feel very much not shameless. Dang. Must go and find some OTHER graphic to swipe. :o/
Your reply wasn’t threaded to mine, so I just found it.

Um.. Sorry if I was unclear. I only meant a little line of credit to the cartoonist might be added. I thought your use of the cartoon was okay. I hadn’t seen that one before.
I mean, that’s just me, and his syndicate’s lawyers may think differently, but mainly folks nowadays know stuff is used and re-used, and just want a line of credit. I am no lawyer but since you’re not re-using a graphic for profit, not trying to pass it off as your own, but valid political re-statement, so it’s a fair-game kind of thing, like news photos. Hope so, anyway, considering all the stuff I’m always re-using.
Thanks for clarifying. You’re right … I should have moved his sig to another spot in the image when I cropped it for my purposes. However, in this case … I’m glad I did the graphic over. This one has way more punch than my first effort with the toon did. Everyone who has been paying attention knows that fire means “Benghazi” plus … fire. It draws the eye! LOL
Okay, done. This photo’s been used all over the place. It’s actually a better graphic. And I need to NOT do original work so late at night. I get sloppy when I’m tired. Thanks again for keeping me honest, Mindful.
So….have you guys been reading anywhere that maybe that video was actually made FOR the govt. to use to further unrest in the Middle East? I think it was at http://www.rightscoop.com. I was wondering what others thought about that.
