    The street artist behind the iconic Hope poster of then-candidate Barack Obama says the president has let him down.

I mean, drones and domestic spying are the last things I would have thought [hed support], he told Esquire.

    A few random news items from around the country: Dinesh DSouza, a prominent conservative filmmaker, was indicted for allegedly violating federal campaign-finance laws.

    Shepard Fairey, the creator of the famous Obama Hope poster, made news last week with another piece of bizarre visual propaganda, this time denouncing Americas habit of clinging to guns and religion. He produced the poster last month in support of the failing anti-gun legislation, and most recently had it printed on hundreds of protest signs in anticipation of a massive anti-gun rally in Washington. From sympathetic Buzzfeed.com: Artist Shepard Fairey will paper downtown D.C. Thursday with copies of a new work aimed at reigniting the push for gun control.

    Few things are more obnoxious than atheists lecturing Christians about what they think the Bible says or should say. One of those however would be an atheist artist lecturing Christians in service of his political masters dogma. Shepard Fairey barely deserves the title of artist. Hes the hack who designed the Obama Hope poster that helped usher in the Age of Obama. Fairey received two years probation and a $25,000 fine for contempt of court in a lawsuit related to that poster, which he based on a copyrighted Associated Press photo. His body of work smacks of Soviet Union-style propaganda...
