It makes no sense that the outside stripes are not red as every other flag in the US.

You’re right. Dictatorship is what we have. It may look better than others, but it’s still a dictatorship. Wake up people. Go to the polls in droves in November, and in so doing you may prevent yet another theft of an election like 2012 was.

Hey Rational Man, Sometimes you need to suffer the negative to see where the positive can take you. Dufuss!

The ACA, (Obamacare) is simply the mechanism being used to drive the entire populace into the corral of single payer medicine (which is what the VA operates for our vets). In the VA we can see what is coming for all of the rest of us. Obama has to completely obliterate our insurance system, which is well under way. Our only hope is the full and complete repeal of ACA.

The wizards of smart are at it again. Spare the rod and spoil the child. It’s as simple as that. Doesn’t need study or comiseration or any nonsense.

The prince of fools was elected by a more dangerous bunch…..the fools themselves. WE should fear those fools, before we worry ourselves with Obama. My friends, we are sunk, if we don’t clean up what is happening to us as a greedy, deserving low life American (?) segment of our great society., Come on folks. Grab the boots, suck on the socks, and the tough jeans, and lets tell the world what we are really made of. It’s time to save this nation!! Tell Obama to take a hike!!

Like they did in 2010, the libs will once again be reminded that still water runs deep, very very deep!!

My bad. I mean 22 new senators not eleven. Likely mostly blue, just like the whole state is anyway.
I think you were closer the first time
5 additional states = 10 additional senators
CA is mostly red, if you look at their electoral map by county. This could actually be a good thing.

Can you imagine adding 11 new Senators to the already screwed up Senate? How about how it’s going to pervert the flag? and render null and void all other flags? I believe dividing California into Northern Cal and Southern Cal would be acceptable, far more than six separate states. But no matter how it’s done, California’s debt is still a major issue.
More California Senators is a creepy thought, but i don't amending the flag is a big deal. We've done it dozens of times already throughout our history.
I agree - CA is a joke if it thinks that six states will do a thing for its problems.
Northern CA and Southern CA do not have much in common - problem is San Francisco should be with South but won't be so this is a nightmare waiting to happen.
They think they have it bad now? Wait until they have NO representation with SIX more sets of bad leaders...
East and West, maybe. Politically speaking, the division is more coastal/mountain than north/south.
CA is a winner-take-all electoral state, so 55 votes go to one presidential candidate no matter how the rest of us feel about him. But, because of the population distribution, dividing the state would only remove a few of those votes from the monolithic voting bloc. We in the red state have far less density of population, and therefore far fewer electoral votes.
Nevertheless, I would LOVE to be cut loose from the boat anchor that is coastal California. Love the region I'm in, hate the politics.
That flag you're talking about has only been around 52 years in its current format. I'm sure we can all cope.
I'm all for Cali splitting up... if anything so that Texas can claim the top spot in population. :)

Landed crab-style in Denver blizzard in 1962 at the old Denver airport. Shall never forget, not only the landing, but also my fathers’ nervous countenance. He knew what was coming, I didn’t.

Obamacare is designed to fail, it is what they want so after we all get so frustrated and turn t o the gov’t for help, they can corral us all into one big single payer system and control us forever. The smartest thing we can do now is make sure the insurance companies don’t get a bailout which is what they expect. They are in on the whole trick being played upon the American people. We best get moving on stopping the congress from EVER bailing them out, like YESTERDAY!! It’s our only hope of actually killing Obamacare for all of us.
I agree I have an account with Amazon.com I made a purchase with them a few months ago and it arrived within one day couldn't believe how fast I recieved it so I'm happy to be apart of Smiles and Supporting Mercury One.Inc.Thanks Glenn for this opportunity to help others when we can as Americans taking care of each other as it should be.GOD BLESS

I think it’s fair to say, now what our illustrious government in all it’s wisdom, controls the interest rate and our currency, we no longer live in a capitalist system. We have gone Fascist!

Floydhowardjr, you are spot on. As a tea party person since April 2009, and a Precinct Committeeman for the Republican party, I can attest that there is a battle for the soul of the Republican Party. The establishment elites who think they know it all and the price of it, will be overwhelmed by the strength of those who are not activists, but who share the same values and goals of a free America. Anyone who is not in touch with a local tea party group, should seek one out and get involved. United we stand…..divided, as they want us to be, we will fall and fascism is not the road we want to take.. Take heart friends, a better day is coming.

it is very difficult to take heart. i too am a tea party person but i just don't see anything positive out there in the political world. The Republican party is lost and weak. Why are you so positive?
You, too, will have a positive outlook when you realize:
A) The Republican party is DEAD.
B) Everyone knows it.
C) The Democrats are now essentially openly communists.
D) Everyone knows it.
E) Nobody likes that idea, because even in the dumbed-down history classes we got in public schools, the voting-age people know that communism and fascism killed hundreds of millions of their own people.
The right and righteous path is opening again, for those who would dare tread it.

I’m frankly so sick of thise self appointed elitist with her overly corrected face would just go away!!

93.5 million workers have no jobs. And remember, when your 99 weeks of unemployment checks have run out, you are no longer unemployed…..you have vanished from the stats. Smoke and mirrors. More Obama lies…….

Did I hear it right that the machines went down when Sharon Angle was leading in the exit polls, and after servicing, Reid was ahead when they came back up? Reid is crooked enough to pull that off, I believe.

If he really thinks the American people are stupid enough to believe he can subsidize away everyone’s losses incurred with their new plans, he’s a bigger fraud that even Andy McCarthy thinks he is, and pretty da**ed bad! Impeach, and quickly!!
