These tools are good for quick and dirty manipulation of graphics but they fall short when more advanced image manipulation is needed.
Since I have given up at my attempts to learn how to draw at the expert level of a editorial cartoonist I choose to use images to editorialize.

The curve of the word "Progressive" would be more expertly fused to the "Black Power" button
This is a depiction of how things were prior to Obama coming on the scene.
GIMP allows me to crop the Obama logo as a circle. Most other tools only allow for rectangular crops. Thus you see the white edges around the Obama logo.
I would have also put some distance between the two logos and made an actual crescent moon effect out of the "Black Power" logo
Having failed to build up sufficient institutional integrity as they focused on personalities - when a STRONGER PERSONALITY came along - the minimal infrastructural protections which protected the BLACK CONSCIOUSNESS NUCLEUS from the AMERICAN POLITICAL DOMAIN were shattered.
When noted Progressives dared to appraise Obama with traditional progressive measures OR dared to continue "Speaking Truth To Power" they were attacked in a manner reserved for Black Conservatives. They have no one to blame but themselves because prior to Obama they also enforced the "Ideological Unity Enforcement" strategy which is now biting them.

GIMP is complex but powerful.
I will need to spend more time reading the book that I purchased and the video tutorials on the Internet for me to understand how it works.
Years ago before Microsoft PowerPoint was on the scene as the king of the presentation graphics tools - Aldus Persuasion proved to be a radical new way of thinking for me - as I recall.
