Wow, thank you for the tips. I thought that keeping the posts short and sweet keep people viewing each day, due to wall of text. I'll definitely post more info and personal points of view from now on!! Thanks again!

I was a huge At the drive in fan, and loved every song by them. I remember the first time I heard Inertiatic esp. I stopped what I was doing, and just stood in awe, listening to the controlled chaos they were playing. Changed my view of music forever.

The Faroe Islands flag is my favorite. The white field and vibrant Nordic cross is beautiful, strong, and elegant

Hey man I'm a drummer too, and this song was a beast to learn.

Oh I plan on it. I'll do it pretty much at random but try to tie it into specific dates (think the mexican flag on cinco de mayo), as well as historical flags, state flags, battle flags etc. Cant go wrong there.

I think they're just trying to put everything out there in the open, thinking it will show that they aren't sweeping things under the rug anymore. While that is admirable, to have 54 recalls in a year really tarnishes your company's image to the public. People hear a recall, and even if its for a light bulb in the door panel, they dont care.

NewlyLostAgain  ·  1991 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Hubski, what's your political persuasion?

Seems pretty fair to me. If you make $40,000 per year, and were taxed $8000 to go to infrastructure, healthcare etc, then received a return or whatever it would make sense. It is a lot of money if you think about it, but the average person making that should be okay.

Also, 20% of 1,000,000 would pump serious money into the government. As long as its fair Im for it. How idiotic is it that we have people who make more money paying less taxes? I refuse to believe the trickle down effect, because if the US dollar went to shit tomorrow, all these billioniares would just go somewhere else today.

NewlyLostAgain  ·  1991 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Hubski, what's your political persuasion?

Anymore I dont know where I stand, because I find things I like and detest about most all political beliefs. I believe that healthcare, education, protection of borders, and municipal services should be run by the government. I also believe that there should be a market that is open for competition, but limits foreign investors and is regulated so things like the recession cant happen. The government should have no place in what you do with your own body (drugs, sexual orientation, etc) and should have a minimal role in your daily lives. Taxes are to be expected, but the more you make, the more you should be taxed.

Vexillologically speaking, even though it is one of the most recognized flags in the world, the US flag breaks a lot of flag design rules. The canton (upper blue part with the stars) is really cluttered, and if the flag werent so iconic, and emerged today as a new flag, most people would bash it for a bad design.

Awesome and thank you! I agree, and find it interesting that no matter what country you're from, what your political beliefs are, or what your culture represents, we all have chosen flags to represent ourselves.

Okay so you inspired me to start a vexillology blog :D http://vexillogic.blogspot.com/

Wow, I havent met many people into both of those as well. I make it a habit to post the first song I listen to every day on Hubski. If there are any artists you're into that I may not know about, post away man!
