Green Room

From the ashes of “Hope” and “Change” now rises “Forward”.  Unless you look “forward” to more of the same (or worse), I can’t think of anything that has happened over the course of the past 3-plus years which could possibly justify the use of “Forward” as a campaign slogan.  I leave you with the words of Ronald Reagan, which heighten the stakes of this election, and reveal Obama’s true directional appeal (click below for ‘shop):

If I could edit after the fact, I’d resize this thing. Sorry, folks!

Tip from a fellow sufferer: width of all images posted to the GR should be a max of 550 pixels. A quick way to reduce image size is to open the image with Microsoft Office Picture Manager and “Resize,” reducing by percentage of original size. The height-width ratio will be preserved, as long as you don’t fiddle with anything except the percentage block. (It has a down-arrow toggle to reduce from 100% of original size to whatever percentage will get you to a width of about 550 pixels.)

All that said, I’m entranced by the giant ants.

Thanks for the tip! RE: the ants, I tried to evoke Reagan’s “ant-heap of totalitarianism”.

Or, how about “OUT”.
