Make Washington D.C. the 50th State with a Simple Swap

Washington D.C. wants to become the 51st State to enter the Union. D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser’s office evidently commissioned the production of 140 American flags, with 51 stars.

For those of you in Rio Linda (h/t: Rush Limbaugh) our flag has but 50 stars, representing the 50 current States. (You never know who will read this)

The 140 flags were strategically placed along Pennsylvania Avenue between the White House and Capital Hill to celebrate the upcoming hearing.

“The hearing, planned for Thursday, will be the first full committee hearing on a District statehood bill since 1993,” writes the Washington Examiner.

Personally, I wouldn’t support such an initiative, just on the mere observation of who is in favor it. Leftist groups like the ACLU, and co-sponsors like Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, Steny Hoyer and Tom Carper of Delaware. Anything that garners this much support from leftists is no good for America. You can bank on that. read more

BBC Gender Benders

You may think there are two genders, male and female. After all, there are just two bathrooms and just two choices on official forms.

But apparently you’d be wrong — way wrong.

The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) has released a series of educational videos targeting school children aged 9-12. In the series, the network instructs kids that there are more than 100 “gender identities.” People who disagree with that, the BBC tells children, “just don’t know any better yet” — and could go to jail. read more
