There is ONE thing that I like a lot about it. It gives greater emphasis to the STATES.
A Progressive Flag will only have one star for the collective while this design amplifies that there are 50 separate governments under this flag. With all of that said, I do not wish to change our current flag.
I like it - State Emphasis! And that's why barry will use it as fuel to cook his evening lamb meal..
My thoughts were simular..only the reason NOT to change the flag is the last 30 years of PROGRESSIVES.. and the latest one wants to fundamentally change the U.S.A.

The problem is not the heritage,neighborhoods or arms. The problem is that there is a rejection of American principles where a violent culture grows. People (ethnicity irrelevant) who reject the principles of the USA & of liberty (Which equate to Jude o Christian Principles) were TAUGHT to reject these principles for left wing political purposes.Our founders understood it clearly. Property Rights. Thou Shall not steal or covet thy neighbor’s goods. Love thy neighbor as thyself. This means that the fruits of your neighbor’s labor are not yours. Respect that. Live with virtue, create less of a burden for yourself. Do not pass your burdens, especially self created burdens onto the wallets of neighbors. Seek charity if necessary & Provide it yourself through personal time, effort and YOUR money. The “collective” is theft when mandated & dictated upon your neighbors. Great amounts of wealth are voluntarily transferred from free individuals who are rich, middle class and poor to charities and churches. That is for the needy. Local government is the last stop for assistance. The Federal government? It’s powers are few and defined. Redistribution of wealth is not one of them. Personal theft efforts is also redistribution of wealth and does not respect your neighbor’s life, liberty or property. As James Madison said, a man has a property in his rights and a right to his property. As Ben Franklin said, those who are corrupt in their manners are in more need of masters.
I find it interesting when someone presents how people are to live but then suggest that the govt OF THE PEOPLE is to 'live' differently.
Why should the people live one way and THEIR govt another?
I find it interesting going by your comment time stamps, you were up late, then at it early again to get the talking points out. Less sleep makes moms' leftist shill a fun boi. This is why Bloomie needs to turn his efforts to the 1stA soon. Assault language while you lose sleep is bad. With the lack of sleep and propensity to high emotion, you should be weapons free at all times.
ethnicity is relevant..The children whose ancestors were slaves have never been taught the self respect, dignity and responsibility required to live as a free person in a civilized society. The vast majority of the crime and failure comes from these. They try to soften the blow by saying "minorities" lumping them in with other groups to deflect, but it is black culture that is responsible for the death and misery, with hispanics pulling up second place. Asian communities don't have theses problems, nor do the middle eastern ones....it is a black thing, and we don't understand
Poor poor foo.
So much brain matter - So little brain function.
You are joking - right?
No one can be as ignorant as your comment is suggesting you are.
Oh it is a 'something' thing and indeed you do not understand.

I already left BOTH of those states!
I’d love to see an amendment that says “A legislator who authors or votes for legislation that stands against the Constitution , including its original 10 amendments, SHALL be removed from office without delay and not eligible for any government employment or lobbying interaction. A Judge who rules against original intent of the Constitution , including its original 10 amendments, SHALL be removed from office without delay and not eligible for any government employment or lobbying interaction., New amendments not prohibited.”

I’ve been a musician for decades, in and out of bands, bars, clubs, auditoriums, parks, piers and studios and I’ve heard a lot of good, great and cringe causing – vocalists and singers – (There is a difference) and all that I can say is that this girl’s voice is simply awesome. The emotion, tone and character of her voice is really something that connected with me as a listener with some musical background and appreciation. I have always liked a wide range of music from John Lee Hooker/ BB / Albert King to Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, to Badlands to Dream Theater and the old crooners of the 40s and 50s always hit the spot around Christmas Time. Some of the Country singers are impressive to me as well. In this girl’s voice, I hear the easy ability to stand in the middle of that and be impressive in her own right with the right songs. She may be like me, passionate more about being a musician than an entertainer, but I encourage her to record some songs and try some open mic nights and see what she thinks of it. Maybe post a few live performance song clips on youtube and put the CD or just song downloads up for sale on CDBaby.com. BE sure to copyright and publish your own songs or get the rights to sing cover songs.

Yes, but doesn’t it seem as though humanity dropped the ball by not figuring this out centuries ago?

I like Constitution Party and Freedom Party.
It is important to have both a name that defines what we stand for and defines what the left is against.
The new name should be the Continental Army ’cause it ain’t happening without a fight. If you don’t think they will kill you before you beat them you are dreaming.
I have been watching this law abiding, peace, love, & brotherhood comedy for 6 years. Meanwhile Obama and Congress having been seeing how many laws they could break. Obama & Boehner laugh in your faces. It ends when a couple million Americans storm the capital. Till then enjoy the carnival & your carnival barkers Beck, Rush, Sean & Mark… Do you honestly think the Washington crowd is just going to give the money & power back to the unwashed masses. Get your water tested.

This is story seems to be very difficult to get wrong. It is like reporting that your car was in an accident when you were actually in the car a half mile behind the accident and arrived later. Telling a lie like this as an “ends justify the means” marketing tool to appear credible, relevant and worth watching is extremely similar to wearing a military uniform to the mall to get price discounts when you never served!
Not that NBC would give us a better person in this place, but Williams needs to be removed from that job. If he “can’t remember” this correctly, how credible can his reports on every day news matters be?

Pretty cool. Thanks for your service Buck!
In a different theater, I could also see Buck working under cover with a Hofner bass as a member of a Beatles Tribute band!

The Blaze, Conservative sites, talk radio and Fox news will cover this story and those who read or listen will understand the weight of the issue as goes for all previous issues, BUT the rest of the country will never even know about it and that means they don’t care about it and that means nothing will be done. In the meantime, if Rand Paul or Scott Walker or Ted Cruz or Ben Carson hired just ONE of them without a work permit, it would be across every media outlet for days, but when Obama gives 5.5 million of them work permits after massive illegal border crossings occur … after he joked about Republicans calling for a fence by asking if they want a moat and after he said the border is secure …. the majority of media would rather tell us how to make great super bowl snacks and what to do with the leftovers.
TnF... You make an absolutely PERFECT point. The hypocrisy of the leftist freak DemonRAT propaganda division... errrr..... main stream media is disgusting.
I'm thinking that Carson or Cruz should hire one of them! If that's what it takes for the media to cover it, go for it. Let the media disclose it to the country. Then people who normally don't hear about it will. And they'll ask questions. That's when Cruz and Carson expose their ploy that was the reason they hired them. Make the media look like the Obama supporters they are. Also it will expose Obama. Then fast track an impeachment hearing. If they have the you know what's.

If Mitt followed the factual poetry in motion pattern of his first debate performance and responded as well as that and as in this tweet in the 2nd and 3rd debates, Obama’s failures would be history instead of current events. After that 1st debate it seemed like “game over”. There is a very interesting story about what happened between the 1st debate and the others and I’d like to know what that story truly is.

The Union label was my first thought. Unions market their high cost as being worth it to get higher quality workers, but as some one who’s belonged to a few union locals, I can tell you that I saw plenty of low quality work from people who should have been fired and who would have if the union didn’t make firing them difficult for the businesses. This story says that it is unknown if this guy was fired because he was a temp and the season was over or if he was a union worker fired for what happened here. It does not actually say that he was a seasonal employee as Larry seems to believe and the free market comes in when we use this story and similar ones to decide whether we should hire UPS or Fed Ex to ship our packages..

It is indeed “a shift in political correctness and tolerance that is geared toward people of faith”, but also a return to Constitutional correctness and principled law that is geared toward defending the rights and liberty for all. The first line of the first amendment establishes that the free exercise of religion exists & shall not be infringed. It also establishes that Congress cannot dictate an official US religion. After decades of past presidents, members of Congress, government officials & citizens attending Sunday Services inside the US Capitol Building & for a while in the US Treasury office with no religion being established & with the free exercise thereof fully realized, the first amendment was literally followed, not violated! THAT is precedent! That is liberty. Thomas Jefferson’s “Separation” statement is used to infringe upon the right of religion on public land, but Jefferson himself attended Sunday services for years in the US Capitol building AFTER writing that. Jefferson himself set the strong, clear precedent that dismantles the modern separation narrative. With a year of calendar days for public displays, left wing groups blatantly bully Christians at Christmas time by making the effort to visually condemn the faith & the celebration of it right alongside Nativity scenes. This is blatant harassment! The ACLU is on the wrong side again. No one is calling for an altar in the oval office, just for liberty as demanded at the start in the Bill of Rights.

I never understand why we see stories like this across the web describing the creatures, but we are not shown a full creature in the picture.
 January 18, 2015 at 8:55am
WOW! I believe that if MSNBC had a policy like this, they’d need to run an apology hour every weekend.
Or every night. Hell wouldn't surprise me if they ended every show, like Rachel Madcow with, "sorry but everything you just heard was wrong."
“And mostly lies and optics for a progressive agenda and Lord Satan. This is Rachel Madcow signing off, have a good night."

This is proof that organized funding by and for individual Americans works far better and much faster than “government action” just as President Grover Cleveland, a Democrat of all things said in the late 1800s when government officials wanted to use government funds to “assist” Texas Farmers who’d been hit hard by drought …… yes, we had droughts in America even before wealth redistributing, over regulating conmen blamed “climate change” for them.
Cleveland vetoed a bill in 1887 that would have appropriated $10,000 in aid. What Cleveland said was this; “I can find no warrant for such an appropriation in the Constitution; and I do not believe that the power and duty of the General Government ought to be extended to the relief of individual suffering which is in no manner properly related to the public service or benefit. A prevalent tendency to disregard the limited mission of this power and duty should, I think, be steadfastly resisted, to the end that the lesson should be constantly enforced that, though the people support the Government, the Government should not support the people.”
Cleveland also said “The friendliness and charity of our countrymen can always be relied upon to relieve their fellow-citizens in misfortune.”
Donations from private American citizens proved him right by raising more than 10 times what the vetoed bill would have provided.
As James Madison said;
The government of the United States is a definite government, confined to specified objects. It is not like the state governments, whose powers are more general. Charity is no part of the legislative duty of the government.
There is also the speech Davy Crockett supposedly gave in Congress (some say urban legend) that is titled "Not Yours to Give." (See it via Google of course.) If you haven't read the whole thing it is worthwhile.

I find it hard to believe that people like you cannot understand the principles of most commenters here, of the Bible, of the Constitution and of being a nation of laws, not of men. To advance the propaganda that you spew is to display political arrogance over character and morals that people like you claim to have despite living in hostility to Biblical and founding principles. You define YOURSELF, not Blaze commenters.
May God bless, guide and comfort this family and make some sort of kind and love thy neighbor principled and honest human out of Hormel!

Impressive and heart warming.
Be the miracle or at least part of a hopeful series of small ones.

Honestly, you can point out the core socialist governing principles of Hitler’s National Socialist Worker’s Party and the communist Soviet Constitution that Stalin ruled with and the Marxist/socialist Democrat party principles with common ground facts and shared anti capitalist/ anti individual rights talking points that they used and have indisputable comments that help people understand big government better. You can also use that to explain why Hitler’s “right wing” is opposite America’s right wing since America’s right wing is small government/big liberty while all of the others mentioned here are big government/less or no liberty. However, using Hitler in one line political comments is always a less effective, low quality point making effort no matter which side tries it. It doesn’t gain allies or make the point as well as pointing out in this case; what Obama DOES make time for while not making time for the unity rally.
