Obviously these protesters reject any sort of assistance from American taxpayers. No wait, they actually want us to pay their way.
If you work in America you are already working to support these people. This is a great way to get us to pay more./s
I would prefer that these people select another country and then move there. After all they have to camp out for days, weeks, months, trying desperately to gain our attention. Anyone else notice the similarities between these people and the Manson family? I do.
Manson and his family had Spawn Ranch these people have Zucotti Park.
Its amazing what people who have soooo much time on their hands,(no jobs) can do to the people who sweat blood and tears to build this country. Not to mention the great fore fathers who died for the real flag. Goes to show who the misguided failures are. I agree, maybe like the protesters in the 60-70 era they will flee to Canada. Wait, they don’t want them. I am afraid by all the lengths our government has gone to, the only ones that will accept them is our government. I think Canada will take us productive people. Hmmmm. Anarchy at its worst.
The stripes represent the 13 colonies, right? The 13 original colonies, that is. Since the protest is in New York, maybe they pulled that original colony out of the flag as a symbolic meaning…
Also…The real American flag, has a red stripe on the top and bottom of the flag. In this picture, there is a white stripe at the bottom of the flag instead. White in the flag supposedly meant “courage” and red supposedly meant “bloodshed”. The flag has been altered to have the white appear on the bottom to make room for TWO red stripes..maybe that red stripe replaced the white stripe to symbolize “bloodshed” for one of the 13th colonies, i.e. New York, where the main protest is at.
Mrs. Bulldog thinks they had a flag which had been cut in half horizontally down the middle. When they sewed it back together, they were all high on crack and accidentally sewed the red stripes together, thus creating the thicker red stripe seen in the middle while leaving the white stripe along the outside bottom edge.
But, anyway you look at it, it just goes to show that they are a gaggle of idiots.
