    A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words

    Nothing needs to be said does it? The picture says all I need to know from the guy holding it.

    I am going to have to call Photoshop in this one. I know there are some idiots out there but this is a little hard to believe.

    I'm a graphic artist and from what I can tell, albeit the low resolution of the image I was sent is not very revealing I cannot tell. It could be photoshop, but I dunno. I'm simply passing along what I was sent.

    Although deep down it really wouldn't surprise me if there were people out there like this.

    I agree, it wouldnt surprise me at all. These bottom feeders actually believe this train of thought.

    If it's real and assuming he's not a citizen....i dunno - I think America would "owe" us, the citizens, before someone here illegally....No? The last part of the sign is just plain wrong....lock em up...he's admitting guilt!

    my first thought also...it is a threatening statement that would not be protected by freedom of speech...he is threatening law enforcement officers...i gotta believe the sign is not real...i just dont want to believe anyone could be that stupid...

    His hand does not look right holding the sign. Also, note the lack of shadows where they should be, and that all other signs, banners, and buttons are in spanish. I'd call it a fake.

    Considering the clone artifacts, easily visible when enlarged, it's pretty obviously fake. Maybe they got the Iranians to do it for them, since they did such a good job on their missile test photo.

    Of course, some people don't care if fake or not, since it's what they want to believe anyway, because it fits the stereotype of their prejudice.

    Just like they're trying to make the law something new, (which it's not) they're making a big deal about illegals' expectations, like that's new? It's been the same law and same expectations for years.
