You miss the point, @50yearslate. No idea who your local mayor is (or if you have one); no idea who your State Governor is; I do know who your head-of-state is, your representative to the world.

Unfortunately you have… well… we won’t go there…

Right, but why is that relevant?

Because each country gets one representative. One person acting as the representative of the country, like the president represents the US on the world stage. Same applies here. No regionalism.

I’m social-distancing and don’t have space for 600 people. There is a school opposite me and a large field they could stay in as well tho. 

I’m not paying their fares!

I, for one, would welcome such an invasion. England can keep the south, but I wouldn’t mind the north being annexed a-hard-days-night-john-6

I reject absolutely revenge, aggression and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is love. I love you, Sheriff Truman.”

First nominee has left the country. Second and third can’t get rid of it fast enough and so have resorted to tossing it around like a toasted hot cross bun straight from the grill.

OK, I added a flag to my sig line. What do you think?? My thought is it might help a new member feel more comfortable participating (or even say hello) to a fellow countryman/woman. Could someone else insert their flag so I don’t feel so lonely?

I simply put the emoji of the flag in – every country’s flag is an emoji!

Edit:

And now that I’ve seen a post by me, ignore that. What I just said doesn’t work.

If anyone wants me to scale down a flag for their sig let me know, no trouble at all.

I’ve got an idea, we should…

Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
No signatures cluttered with flags
You know it makes sense too

Here’s a radically libertarian idea: how about if people like the idea of flags in their signatures they can include them, and if they don’t want to, they don’t have to, because everyone more or less puts whatever the heck they want in their signatures anyway? Just a thought… ahdn_george_06

Like I said, I was gonna put a flag in my sig anyway because I just like it, and I felt it was worth squeezing in. mccartney-shrug_01_gif

I just added the flag to proudly present that  I was hmmmm let’s see, how did Mr. Springsteen put it again? 

Oh yes:

BOOOOOORRRN IN THE USA
BOOOOORRRN IN TH E USA

Except I really want to travel the world and see other places because while America has its charms I have an undying wanderlust that I hope to quench as soon as possible by going to a college with a good study abroad program paul-mccartney-thumb_gif

Though, I must say, I’m still quite surprised that so many people have nominated me for the position, as opposed to you. I’m quite honoured, yes, but I never thought I was quite prolific enough to hold such a title. You’ve been here much longer than I have, after all, and I feel like you’re a much more recognisable member of the forum than I am. But, if everyone here, including the other Canadians, wishes for me to have it, I can’t really object to it. apple01
