How the hell are we going to design the flag if we have to add another star? xD

Either:
A). We go back to circles.

B). We stick with the same square like pattern.

I think B should be the new flag because it will be a less pain in the butt to draw, all you have to do is to put them in the right columns and rows. But that’s just me. What flag do you guys think should be the best candidate for the country’s flag, when we gain a new state?

@Ric
You forgot best flag.

Personally, I think it would be great if Puerto Rico gained statehood. Not sure how many opportunities would open up for them as a state but still.

Welp, I should have seen this coming.

I think Canada should allow the USA to become a province.

Meh. I don’t really see this passing in the Senate.

I say welcome! It’s not the first time we’ve had a newcomer. Having 51 will be be odd at first, but we’ll get used to it.

Their isn’t only one word for a homosexual in Spanish. Culero roughly translates to “assfucker”, that is, a homosexual and it’s obvoiusly deragotory.

I’ve heard people say maricones a lot more here then the word culeros. Or maybe i’m just not paying attention enough to what people say. Oh well, thanks for the fact.

Yeah, terms differ depending on where you live. Sometimes, even language itself.

@Ann

A lot of people have been talking about being state for quite sometime now, so it’s not a surprise. It only caught me off-guard when people actually voted that they finally wanted to be a US state.

Right now, I’m unsure if I should really be glad about this or not. I’ll just wait and see what happens.

Naaaaaaaaaaaaaawwwwwww, I am totally not joking. We will also have to scrap the “Fifty Nifty United States” song as well! This will totally be bad for our nations… er… stuff.

Yeah, I have no clue how you could have mistaken that for anything but a joke. Come back once you have grown a sense of humor.

I find your assumption that he’s talking about Texas very offensive.

I find your offense to be very privileged. You should get that checked.

I think a lot of people are (Jokingly) suggesting that we absorb sovereign nations because they don’t understand why Puerto Rico wants to become a state. (Not that I’m trying to be rude to those people, I only know of the issue because of an educational youtube video.)

Puerto Rico has been a territory (Basically a colony) of the US for years, is run under American laws, its citizens are American, and they pay American taxes. Yet they cannot vote on anything but local (Puertorican) issues. So they’re gonna vote on whether or not they should become a state, and if the majority says yes… we will be the fifty-one goddamn states of ’Murica.

Fair enough, I only mentioned it because it’s not the commonest of knowledge.
