IMO this should be required watching for all contributors to the Politics message board, some, no names mentioned, more than others.

Great reference. This link includes the complete Calling Bullshit playlist, useful whatever the side of the 'rabbit-proof' fence we face.

That's true. The EU flags are in Blue and Yellow, Not Red, White and Blue.
I wonder how many countries that chose Blue and Yellow as a national symbol...
Ok. I know two in Europe:)

I really don't get the "Betsy Ross flag" thing either... are we supposed to go all Taliban and burn anything made before 1865 because it was made when there was legalized Western slavery? If so, then I have some racist furniture. :^p

This is one problem with these movements: they start off with perfectly legitimate and justified goals, but once those are accomplished become movements in search of something to change/be against and end up becoming ridiculous. The "stars and bars" are one emblem of actual traitors by the constitutional definition of the word, who went to war against the U.S. expressly to preserve slavery and segregation, so I completely agree with getting rid of it from the public sphere entirely. The older U.S. flags are none of these things.

Edit: I wonder, but I very much doubt, if the old "Betsy Ross" flag is being objected to as too similar in appearance to the actual flag of the CSA (Confederate States of America)



(this is the final one... there were earlier with fewer stars.)

New Melania Trump statue in Slovenia gets mixed reviews.

It looks to be a hit here and perfectly capturing the 1st lady's wooden appearance. ;-)

Reconciling one's account/s can be tedious at times, but it does help when banks themselves are accurate.
Spent a pleasant morning shopping & coffee with friends. ATM not issuing receipts so got a mini statement.
