Middle Eastward Ho!

(click pic for larger)

One for the art majors out there:

"The Manifest Destiny of Saint John McCain"

A journey on which he will, of course, be accompanied by his loyal Sancho Panzerkorps

The War Horse Whisperer.

(And here is the inspiration --

"American Progress" by John Gast)

You frighten me, Drifty.

I have horrors of undergrad history classes I flunked in every pic.

All that 'incremental expansion to define the orderly procession of the Manifest Destiny, as laid out upon the gridlines of the surveyors, state by state . . .'

Gag me with a shovel.

Not that they wasn't true, but why the HAYALL did we have to do four years, and take their shit in class, for the OBVIOUS?!?!?!?!?!?!


That's some serious snark, hoss, nice photoshoppin.

N yer still killin me.

I like that the tanks leading the "charge" are the Matilda and the Crusader--two of the worst dogass armored machines ever produced by the British (or any) Empire. Extremely appropriate.

Wow that picture with the big eyes is scary. Reminds me of some movie where the one guy could see people as they really were... forget the name of it.
