Skip to comments."Together We Thrive" slogan used by OFA in 2008...

What a slimeball. The Arizona Massacre Rally/Memorial was the first campaign stop of the 2012 election.
A little help here please FReepers
I saw a graphic on a FR thread in the last two (2) days
It had the text: “TOGETHER WE THRIVE” over a poster (?) in China (?) with a Chinese (?) gentleman of some girth - with two (2) small girls (I think they are both girls)
Is that picture original with that text - or was it added recently to it at Photoshop or ImageMagick (a great free graphics mod shop) ???
I cannot recall the FR thread - and stupid me did not grab the image and upload it
Then I could also have looked at the embedded code that makes up the image, where it was done, even who did it - and when
If 0bama or anyone on his staff or at OFO used a Chi-Com propanda graphic (the average person in Red China lives in pretty lousy conditions and a crummy livestyle) - it would me mucho interesting
Politically a bombshell (Whoops!)
I occasional buy some wonderfully made small and medium sized diecast and hand-painted mucho high-level quality items from China or Taiwan - and it from from smart honest stealth capitalists (non-union !!!) - items better than from Euro now - even better than from Italy just 20 years ago - comparable to England from several decades back before they gave up in the UK
Why? They’ll ignore it, they are MUCH too busy fawning over O’s campaign...er, memorial speech from last night.
Organizing for America (OFA) is branding something with “Together We Thrive”
They have not arrived there yet.
If you could get Sarah Palin to start wearing “Together We Thrive” ball caps in her appearances for about a month, so that the logo gets associated with her.
That would kill any benefit associated with it, because Obama CANNOT come out and claim the brand at this point.
She could then wear: “We Gather Together”
And then: “To Ask the Lord’s Blessing”
How about: “Jesus Thrives! So, Together We Thrive!”

Sounds like a Photoshop devolve.
It is on hannity’s blog and a few others. This will be on the talk radio cycle tomorrow.
So, ‘my loved one was murdered and all I got was this lousy t-shirt’.
This has to be exposed to We The People and all the talk show hosts and Fox News.
GEORGE SOROS DID!
Yes, Obama’s first political rally for his 2012 reelection campaign was held yesterday in Tuscon. Any one who thinks differently has lost touch with reality.
Thanks for unearthing this disgusting truth. Obama & the Dems have dishonored the dead, injured & the entire Tucson community.
That OFA link is a hoot....I got sucked In and started reading stuff from the 2008 campaign.
Did you know that Zero was very upset about the jobs report from September 2008....when we lost “more than 159,000 jobs” that month due to Bush’s “failed policies....blah, blah, blah...”
Like I said - it’s very funny!

Shame on you
They didn't open with the national anthem or a hymn. Instead, they used "Fanfare for the Common Man" by composer Aaron Copland.
They opened the ceremonies with music at the memorial that has been used to open many Democratic National Conventions.
An interesting choice to say the least. Copland had quite the history himself when it came to Progressivism and Communism.
Aaron Copland (November 14, 1900 December 2, 1990):
In the early 1940s, Copland produced two important works intended as national morale boosters. Fanfare for the Common Man, scored for brass and percussion, was written in 1942 at the request of the conductor Eugene Goossens, conductor of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra. It would later be used to open many Democratic National Conventions,.."
"...Deciding not to follow the example of his father, a solid Democrat, Copland never enrolled as a member of any political party, but he espoused a general progressive view and had strong ties with numerous colleagues and friends in the Popular Front, including Odets. Copland supported the Communist Party USA ticket during the 1936 presidential election, at the height of his involvement with The Group Theater[disambiguation needed], and remained a committed opponent of militarism and the Cold War, which he regarded as having been instigated by the United States. He condemned it as, "almost worse for art than the real thing". Throw the artist "into a mood of suspicion, ill-will, and dread that typifies the cold war attitude and he'll create nothing". In keeping with these attitudes, Copland was a strong supporter of the Presidential candidacy of Henry A. Wallace on the Progressive Party ticket. As a result, he was later investigated by the FBI during the Red scare of the 1950s and found himself blacklisted. Copland was included on an FBI list of 151 artists thought to have Communist associations. Joseph McCarthy and Roy Cohn questioned Copland about his lecturing abroad, neglecting completely Copland's works which made a virtue of American values. Outraged by the accusations, many members of the musical community held up Copland's music as a banner of his patriotism. The investigations ceased in 1955 and were closed in 1975. Though taxing of his time, energy and emotional state, Copland's career and international artistic reputation were not seriously affected by the McCarthy probes. In any case, beginning in 1950, Copland, who had been appalled at Stalin's persecution of Shostakovich and other artists, began resigning from participation in leftist groups. He decried the lack of artistic freedom in the Soviet Union, and in his 1954 Norton lecture he asserted that loss of freedom under Soviet Communism deprived artists of "the immemorial right of the artist to be wrong." He began to vote Democratic, first for Stevenson and then for Kennedy..."
It was also the slogan of the The Western Massachusetts Regional Library System.
John Kerry probably stole it.
My fault potlatch
I cannot just “read” the URL of an image on FR or elsewhere
I have to take the webpage (thread) URL to a “SOURCE” toolsite and download it there - then I can take it to I-M to enlarge it, crop it, mod it - then upload it
A bit of a hassle if I am snowed under on threads - or looking for or posting another image -
If there is a chance - I’d like to find that picture / poster on that FR thread and exam it carefully
If it has been Photoshopped - or if the ‘text’ has been added to / over image - I will be able to tell where and when
The huge amount of code and color codes within an image is truly staggering!
The Tax Payor I am sure what a joke
[The huge amount of code and color codes within an image is truly staggering!]
I don’t understand about that. What does it have to do with just saving a graphic? In all my work I’ve never had any ‘dealings’ with that stuff.
I do understand about “getting the url” though. Hope you find it.
OFA is still operating. They have a staff in the WH and a larger staff at DNC HQ.
Great find and it’s a damned shame that bloggers have to do the investigative work that journalists should be doing. Thank God for the Internet!
The GHOULS that refer to themselves as democrats never miss an opportunity to turn a tragedy into a DNC telethon. I'll wager the dolts who vote for these feinds are too thick to realize how sick it is to seek a political opportunity at a memorial for the victims.
Who's bright idea was it to have T-shirts?
I remeber that show
The page ID is; johnberry_iv/C94H
That tidbit of info may come in handy if it is scrubbed.
ping in case ya missed yer pic...
A link has been posted on Hannity and a conservative group on FaceBook. It won’t be secret long.
Has anyone sent this to Drudge or Brietbart??
Why does a president need a fundraising organization?
Does this slush fund get money from the federal budget?
Why does he get away with calling this stash “ofay”?
Thanks Gilbo, I’m sure devolve will be happy to find it.
Excellent find! This confirms that the Tucson “memorial” service was really a cynical campaign rally op for Obama 2012.
Please make this go viral. I bet Drudge would love to run with this! :)
Ah, thanks. Now I see what he meant. I guess all of mine come with data indicating Jasc Animation Shop. The ‘color’ bit confused me.
Should check with Nervous Tick to see where that pic came from.
I agree, thanks!
Great picture. Need to do some Googling to see the origin of that logo.
I can strip out vital info and any SIG in just a few seconds from an image
It is now 980x553 (from 1500x???) to concentrate the image at a large screen size with quality raised from 69% to 100%
The ‘Code’ will now contain ‘false’ and ‘ImageMagick’
Perhaps the original poster of the image can tell us if they know if the text at top was NOT added and if so - where it came from
Well - I am out of Corona and must face linquini with meataballs, Atalantic Street salad with grilled chicken strips, Philly Cheesesteak and a biggie pizza with only COKE and ginger ale!
My fridge will be well stocked!
Thanks to all!
Check out the comment from the guy who posted this T-Shirt design
“Its a T-Shirt to stop Anti Racism.” - Slippie
They did you a ‘good turn’!!
I sent it to both and a few more places to boot.

For too long Americans have been set one against the other, it is a side affect of a free market society. How can profits be maximized, how can I get the work done for the lowest possible costs. This continually sets one group against the other, especially in the blue collar sectors of America.
So ‘OFA’ (formerly ‘OFØ’) cropped off “Stop Racism” from the (alleged) T-Shirt design graphics
Somebody is corn-fuzed bigtime
So who actually did the “modified-design” - and who paid for it?
WH says they did not
University says $60,000
- and they will pay for it!
[ a soon as George Soros launders it through the TIDES FOUNDATION ]
