It will be reseeded and when it happen's the new flower's will bloom with color. The flag of this country represent's us americans and what we stand for and we will defend it to the death. DON'T * TREAD * ON * ME!

  • Egypt, Tunisia, Libya, Bahrain, Yemen, maybe,, just maybe those Arabs know something you still have to realise, one thing I can safely predict, and that is soon the shit is going to hit the fan.
