    Then it really doesn't sound like a good idea.

    I'm sure they would feel just right, and they are certainly impressive, but I doubt those puppies are more than 44s.

    Oh and it would be easy to have 51 stars. Just change the pattern.
    I like how this flag looks. It even opens up more room for additional states to be added. Our flag has changed many times throughout history as states were added. The only problem with this flag is everyone would claim they are the center star.

    Not wanting to change the flag is a lame excuse for denying Puerto Rico statehood. Now, the other reasons I've read here are more legitimate.

    But if you're THAT concerned about the flag being changed... who knows, maybe a conservative state will secede from the U.S.

    Problem solved

    Heck, it looks like she could be in Key West, but her boobs could be in Puerto Rico.

    Why or why not?
    I "really" want a new flag.

    Rock the vote.
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.
