Way to go Murray, this thread had NOTHING to do with politics, but you had to go and make it that way.

Nothing political about it...more sociological.

Weíre all grown ups here, sharing ideas, and there is no harm intended.

If anybody gets offended, I did read a good saying a while back; ďDonít worry about what Iím saying. Worry about why you are worrying about what Iím sayingĒ

It is the rest of the world that calls the people of the USA "AMERICAN'S" that is just the way it is. If this country had a one word name that is what we would be called. I agree with you that all people that live in the western hemisphere are Americans.

WHOA!!! there little beaver, now you crossed the line. You have to be an Alaska resident for over a year to receive, what is $1,650.00 dollar (US) for 2018 dividend and it should have been a $3.500.00 dollar share, if the damn governor and legislature not cut the amount to feed the bloated budget demands. Next they will want to cut out our senior benefits which include free hunting/fishing/trapping license, free auto license tabs, 50% or $150,000.00 annual property tax reduction which ever is less,

So let us go back to burgee debate in ernest or I shall unsheath my Confederate Battle flag bow pendant and charge the line.

PS: Yes, given a family of five, that would be a hansom amount were it what it should have been- $17.000 Plus.
and it is an election year!!! New Governor? do yu think???

As others have said, the colors I went with are just the ones that happen to be in the international signal flags for the letters 'T' and 'F.' It wasn't meant to be overly patriotic or nationalistic in any way. No worries though, I believe I have the solution! Feast your eyes on the 'all-inclusive, open, accepting, forward thinking, friendly, and just plain happy to be here and a part of things' burgee of the trawler forum! Drum roll please!!

Wait for it...

Having just been elected secretary for our yachting club, and my partner elected port captain, we now have two flags to fly below our yachting club burgee, the Texas flag, and the American flag.... I think we have enough flags. Any more and our power boat will be under sail power.

Why does everyone need a burgee anyway? Not knocking it, just wondering why (aside from the boats) is it always about a burgee?

Just fly a "Depends". Never leave home without a spare.

I almost fell off a 'changing table' in the restroom
