    Not to worry TW, I still can't figure out how to post a pic in a thread even with Elefant's video tutorial. You are still our friend even if you cannot cut and paste.

    And for flag etiquette, I see lots of adults who are flying unserviceable U.S. flags and the local American Legion chapter has a repurposed mailbox into which anyone with an unserviceable flag can drop it off and the Legion will dispose of it legally and properly.

    I just think this stuff matters.
    i always get a kick out of "patriots" flying the stars and bars alongside the u.s. flag.

    Technically, the stars and bars is this flag.

    You may notice its similarity to the state flag.

    Congrats to the democrats, they have almost accomplished their goal. In just a few short years they will be able to have enough useful idiots to vote the Constitution null and void and install their Socialism/Communism form of ruling over the peons.

    See this was begun back in the 70's and now culminating with the "white man bad and everyone else good" movement the goal is in sight.

    Congrats to the republicans. They have enough useful idiots right this second to be the party of criminals, frauds, traitors, Russian assets, and all manner of other scum to have nearly installed their oligarchy/corporatocracy to make the Constitution null and void.

    It was a Bank For Savings.
