    Mine? California - Eureka, I have found it!

    *I think it was the illegal aliens, from Mexico, that said that a couple of years ago. Why? Because we took California away from them when it became a part of the US as a result of the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo signed on February 2, 1848 ending the Mexican American War.

    And NOW they are trying to take it back, by not leaving? :wtf: They just don't get it! We won! We get to keep it! :woohoo:

    (By the way, the flag's image is totally a riff off of the Pelican in her Piety, an image - used in the medieval Europe to symbolize Christ - of a mother pelican engaged in the (purely) legendary pracitce of piercing her own breast to feed her young with her blood in the absence of food. Catholic much? Here's a hint: we don't have counties, we have parishes.)

    What was it before 1957 "We cain't think a-nothin'"? :lol:

    But the new one is definitely an improvement over the one from 1957 to 1987 :D
