As Stan Laurel would say, "I'm sorry, Ollie."  
I realized today that the decision to portray Green Arrow as an outspoken liberal was actually a pun.

When you stop at an intersection, what does the Green Arrow usually tell you to do?

Amusingly enough, up here at least, it tells you to go both right, left, and straight on through. :3

So Ollie and Dinah Lance were standing on a street corner, and Dinah looks up at a sign. She leans over and kisses him.

"Not that I mind, but what brought that on?"
"Just following directions."
"What directions?"
"Turn on Green Arrow."

Generally, it means you may make a protected left turn.

oh yeah - kind of a moderate left thing? socially liberabl, but still a fiscal conservative, as with the thing where he was promoting gay marriage after a residency period to bring in tourism dollars with two-week honeymoon-then-marriage packages?

Had to think about that one for a bit. That's awesome.

Turn. Some intersections in town have turn left, some have turn right, and one has both.

You know, you didn't have to share that.
