    Pine trees get flowers. Not like those you see in your garden, but flowers nonetheless. That's where pine cones come from. (And that's where all the yellow pollen that covers your car in May comes from.)
    Yea, technically gymnosperms don't have flowers. They have male cones (usually small) and female cones (usually larger) which are different in structure from flowers.

    The gymnosperms produce 'bare seeds' in the cone, as apposed to flowering plants producing a fruit, which bears the seed.

    You are correct about the pollen, and I was wrong in generalizing evergreens with ferns and such.

    I enjoy analyzing hyper hypocrisy. It often gets confused with adoration of the opposite. Especially here.

    I like the one of President Obama much better than the one of First Lady Michelle, but I think it is the bent towards monotone shading of her portrait that leaves me a bit less than enthusiastic about the painting.

    They seemed pleased with them, so that is good, if they weren't then at least they made it seem so. Very diplomatic.
    Only an unwitting jackass would say that I believe a raped and murdered woman to be morally superior to a woman, gun in hand, with a dead rapist at her feet.

    That was pretty crazy. The "Obama has sperm on his head" was created in a 4chan chat room by white supremacists and it was up on hannity.com in like 4 hours before being taken down. That's not a good look.

    This whole thing reminds me of the uproar when Common performed at the White House and the CEC tried to paint him as a hard core gangta rapper.

    Obama looks like he is going potty outside in a bunch of weeds, oh wait...........................perfect!!!

    Michelle ma belle doesn't even look like herself, oh wait...........................................per fect!

    It's literally a perfect illustration of shameless LIBERALISM and will end up the PNL portraits among all the other portraits and a permanent reminder of the "historic" foolishness and mistake of the 2008/2012 electorate.

    JMO!

    In another thread today we have people posting that republicans weren't petty with Obama like they are with Trump.

    Thanks for posting that.

    My thoughts on the Obama's portraits, A portrait should draw the viewers attention to the face of the subject, and invite closer study. Neither painting does that very effectively in this instance.

    I'm sure D0nald will choose one that best showcases his Rubenesque proportions.
