    @OhWiseOne I don't think many understand the second is so closely tied to the first. The methods that are used to infringe on the second could easily be applied to the first. Political correctness is a first step.

    @NTBFW The 1st Amendment does not mean you can say any fool thing you like and no one will object or judge you. It only means that the government will not arrest you for what you say unless your speech creates clear and immediate danger to those around you.(Like yelling "Fire!" in a crowded theatre.) So the 1st has nothing to do with being "PC." Really, those who find being PC cramps their style are just used to being rude and are grumpy because society frowns upon it.

    The first amendment as well as the second and the entire Bill of Rights is meant to protect you from government. Not some idiot posting your face on a naked guy. It's meant so you can speak out about your religion and other views without reprisals from the government, yet it is never used like that!

    I may be mistaken, but, if you look at the pic...it appears to have smaller shoulders and well...ummm...breasts. No?..

    Yeah, he's one of our leaders to boot. I am more convinced each day that the solution it to reelect nobody. I've been saying it for years. It's time some working class people grabbed the bull by the horns and maybe then our issues could get solved. But the current class of clowns IS the problem.

    "No one has a right to make fun of anyone," -- Um ... isn't there an entire branch of the entertainment industry based on just that? Aren't there people in that industry who get paid very handsomely to make fun of public figures? Lighten up, Ernest.

    Sounds like this gent needs to lighten up, get a little perspective on things, learn to laugh at life's little vicissitudes - he's far too "Earnest" for his own good. ;)

    I use photoshop a lot. I've photographed quite a few people along with professional models and i've learned that almost all photos need some type of attention. Even as handsome as I am photoshop can't hurt. :) Yeah...some people just need to lighten up.

    No 1 has the right to make fun of someone? Who is this clown ? I wish I had time to use Photoshop. we need to get rid of these politicians who believe their duty is to police everything we say or think.

    In related news an anonymous source tells me that the US congress is meeting in back rooms trying to find someone to vote against a bill that would make it the death penalty to criticize a U.S. Senator or Congressperson. It seems none of them are against the bill.

    But it should be considered a breach of journalistic ethics to alter any image in any way.

    I hate to think what will happen when CGI characters are indistinguishable from real people.

    "'No one has a right to make fun of anyone,' said Smith." I don't consider it a right to make fun of him. I consider it a privilege.

    The Internet has become a vital Tool in the hard lefts mission to manipulate the masses into nothing more than a brain dead zombie army purely motivated by a lust for others peoples money. They knew the lack of intellectual curiousity coupled iwth the astounding political ignorance of today's Americans would serve them well. They Won so they must be right.

    If you don't want people to make fun of you (via photoshopping) then do not make a fool of YOURSELF (as do the so-called "tea-party" politicians do everyday

    There was a case in Albuquerque a few years back involving two women who filed a civil suit against a man in family court claiming he had put a nude photo of one of them on Craig's list. The faces of the man and woman in the photo were partially blocked, but one could tell by the fingers, the teeth, the build, etc. of both it wasn't who the two women claimed it was. Finally after contacting a porn attorney from Vancouver, B.C., Canada representing Sweet Entertainment Group, the true owners of the photo, it became apparent that the photo was actually nothing more than commercial porn. The Judge Angela J. Jewell, a District Court Judge, refused to hear any evidence or even let the attorney for the respondent use her courtroom computer to access the original photo; the Albuquerque Police refused to take a report; the Albuquerque District Attorney, Kari A. Brandenburg stated her "....office lacked the resources to investigate the case"; the New Mexico Court of Appeals refused to hear the case (one of the Judges involved later had to step down for corruption). What the two women did in the case of kathylyn m. beck v. joseph chao were felonies: 1) Conspiracy 2) Collusion 3)Fraud Upon A Court of Law 4) Misuse of Intellectual Property Over $500. There ARE laws now to govern misuse of photographs. What is lacking is often the WILL to prosecute people who intentionally misuse the legal system (barratry, malicious prosecution) to harass others. This guy, though, is a public figure, not an anonymous private individual. What happened to him is often done by people like Jay Leno on the Tonight Show. He needs to get over it.

    The deterioration of our rights has been long since happening. This bill is simply another nail in the coffin of the constitution and our god given rights of expression, speech, assembly and so forth.

    This depends. If the person is a public figure then they need tosuck it up. Lots of public figures become the butt of jokes, but if they can't take then heat get out of the kitchen.

    I draw the line at maligning or victimizing children.
