John, I'm sure you posted the picture as humor. I had nothing to do with its disappearance. I thought that photo was amusing, but perhaps not in the same way as the original artist. Here's something to think about when it comes to public forums:

I could make a photoshop picture of John McCain as "The Grinch". It would all at once be funny, inaccurate, disrespectful, divisive, and insulting to others. I think less divisiveness in the world would be a good thing.

I think John McCain, as the grinch, would also be pretty funny. I, and everyone else that I showed it to, thought the BamaBucks was pretty funny. I can laugh at both sides. I read both the comic strips, "Doonesbury" and "Mallard Filmore", and get a chuckle out of each. I thought the little story about Bush, when he first talked about Obama, saying, "Wait a minute; he's the guy we're trying to catch, isn't he?" was pretty good too.
I don't think my picture was any worse than some of the stuff in the other thread (Presidential Candidates - Pro's and Con's). I just wished that the person that removed itwas the one who answered.

This was a picture of a three dollar bill, with Obama's picture on it. The picture is readily available on many venues. If you're not too thin skinned, just Google, "Obama $3 bill", and you will find a plethora of sites.
My family is 100% Norwegian ancestry, But we laugh every day at, "Hagar The Horible", the bumbling Norwegian Viking comic strip.

I really would like to know who decided this should be removed.
