So...does this mean I can't do this?!! (Justin Bieber's legs BTW!)

Or that this guy can't do this?

How about this?

Would that be breaking the law?

UPDATE: Oh this is getting good! Here are some good ones from the comments below!

Bunch more here! Thanks AAAAANDRE

UPDATE 2:New Face Book Page: The Obaminator

UPDATE 3: Many people have wondered if the WH wanted the photo to be shared around the internet in actuality. Though clearly speculation, it is plausible considering:

Obama has only himself

to blame for this. He oughtn't to have claimed to be a skeeter. I have observed several trap and skeet meets, and Obama doesn't resemble the real deal, here.

Looks like everyone is

Looks like everyone is 'shopping this photo today.

Over on fark.com they took that warning as a reason to do it. Now I see more here. This might become the photo with the most altered versions ever at this rate.

I wonder what will happen in 2016 when rand paul ends SS protection for our leaders?

Which he and his father do not have, want or need!lol

I can't believe I'm about to post these words...

Anywhere, but especially on the Daily Paul: "A penis with a side vent?"

Fiddling while Rome burns, or rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic, might not be the most efficient use of our time but I laughed quite a bit last night and this morning. Thanks.

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.

I don't think they have to worry....

about it being used to show "approval or endorsement of the President, the First Family, or the White House".

Wait a second...

There's so much superfluous jargon added to the exif data of the original picture (found here: http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8331/8436110735_e822c23e69_o.jpg), but for some odd reason the exif data says it's a "599999900% blow-up of the 1 × 1 (0.0 megapixel) original". So how much fishiness can we expect out of the rest of the exif data? I'm figuring at least the location data and the date taken.

The last I knew,

the skeet range at Camp David had a wooden fence around it, so where is it. It's been a while, though, so maybe it's gone. It would be fun to know where the picture was taken.

The location on the exif is "Location: Camp David, MD, USA"

Which I think would have to be edited in by hand. The camera used was a Canon EOS 5D Mark III, which itself can only geotag with an add-on GPS unit, and I'm sure that unit wouldn't be putting out a tidy Municipality, State, Country format, it'd be giving coordinates.

Thanks

for the info. Very interesting, indeedy.

In English please?!

Are you suggesting that there is extra data planted in the original Flickr image?

Basically yes.

It could totally be only as innocuous as that the copyright was added when Photoshop was used to adjust color levels (which could be when the copyright was attached). I just don't believe much of anything that the Obama administration does for the cameras.

My new favorite DP thread.

It's like the DP is throwing a party, and RobHino and Betty Liberty each came bringing a six-pack of lulz.

A signature used to be here!

Obama won't let me alter his photo.

Cheer up, kiddo. Just do it anyway!

Who paid for the photo in

Who paid for the photo in question? I would imagine Tax dollars are involved and as a tax payer don't we have some rights?

Pertaining to all of the posts below..

This is why I love this site, everybody here and our Liberty movement :-)

It is high time to utilize the 1st Amendment. They want claim to fb, email and other things are no longer protected because they are 'online', well so is this, lol.

hey obama, life can be a bitch sometimes. Especially when dealing with proud and true red-blooded Americans. Smile, you're on public camera ;-)

...you mean we can't put the words "DICTATOR" on the image?

Because that's exactly what this is.

no free speech
no guns
NO RIGHTS AT ALL

CLASS SLAVERY LEGALIZED WITH OBAMACARE

DHS = ATF = GESTAPO

Now you know why they declared the US a war zone with the NDAA.

All this just in time for their sadistic little "33rd year" celebration, since they erected the Georgia guidstones on 3/22/1980.

WOW! THE LARGEST..

Continuing Criminal Enterprise in the world is worried about some low level copyright infringement.

Well taken point, but understated...

The HEAD of the largest criminal enterprise in the world, the 'Boss of Bosses" of the DC/ NWO Occupation government, is worried about alleged low-level copyright infringement.

Especially when he is the purported 'victim'!
