I could live without California. Nothing good comes out of there anyhow. Mexico can have it.

They just passed a resolution that porn actors must wear condoms now. So boo on that.

Typical Hollywood movie plot now a days- Blow something up, boobies, fight scene, something blows up, boobies, the end.

No sir. I prefer substance and a plot. Which eliminates 95% of films these days.

We do use ND and SD as abbreviations (check USPS) but when we talk in the street about South Dakota we never say SD because obviously no one will understand. Normally we say S. Dak or the whole state name.
how often do you talk in the streets about north and south dakota? lol



i voted no as i dont see a point.. plus it would make our flag look weird

I thought the same, but I also don't mind Puerto Rico joining. I guess I should know pros and cons before voting...

Come on in Puerto Rico. I do not think complete independence is the way to go for Puerto Rico.

A new flag design to incorporate 51 stars would be cool. My initial thought is that it would be an economic boom to flag makers, but unfortunately those in China, Viet Nam, etc.

as posted in another thread, 23 states have petitioned the White House to leave the Union. Lots of stars might need replacing.

The poll just ended
Thanks for all the comments and votes

Regarding the 23 states that have petitioned the White House to leave the Union I completely disagree because after years they worked together to become what it is today U.S. and in a blink of a eye they separate because they are bad economically.

This is like I was married and my wife was fired of work and now I ask her for a divorce because she doesnt provide anything good.

We grew up together, we need to fight together!!
