Just saw this picture on Drudge, and looked-up a better resolution. Sometimes we forget what our national symbol is. Not a donkey nor an elephant. If we ever get to establish new political party representing our values, it's symbol should be this:
An eagle with a flag tattoo on its face?
ummm, no thanks.
Not a donkey nor an elephant
Nor a rino.
Yeah, no tats.
I like it.
I don’t know—I kinda like it.
The image of the eagle represents all that has failed in this country. A new party need new imagery.
The eagle would be a good symbol. The flag could be a problem, because there are so many laws banning its use on clothes etc. and the Big Government crowd would certainly file suit preventing conservatives from using it.
I’m going to vote, on liking it.
My take on the American Party is: "The sooner the better". But, people have to be willing to commit and go the distance because in the initial phases it would give more leverage to democrats.
I think the Wild Turkey.
I like The Party of the American Revolution. PAR sounds about like the standard we should all be able to achieve. It could also be The Party of the American Republic. We’re not a democracy and we should always make hat plain, IMHO.
Not a tattoo, that’s tacky. War Paints!
You like eagles? Check out this great story!!
This came from a gent who runs a 2,000-acre corn farm up around Barron, WI, not far from Oshkosh. He used to fly F-4Es and F-16s for the Guard and participated in the first Gulf War.
I went out to plant corn for a bit, to finish a field before tomorrow morning and witnessed The Great Battle. A golden eagle — big, with about a six-foot wingspan - flew right in front of the tractor. It was being chased by three crows that were continually dive bombing it and pecking at it. The crows do this because the eagles rob their nests when they find them.
At any rate, the eagle banked hard right in one evasive maneuver, then landed in the field about 100 feet from the tractor. This eagle stood about 3 feet tall. The crows all landed too and took up positions around the eagle at 120 degrees apart, but kept their distance at about 20 feet from the big bird.
The eagle would take a couple steps towards one of the crows and they’d hop backwards and forward to keep their distance.
Then the reinforcement showed up. I happened to spot the eagle’s mate hurtling down out of the sky at what appeared to be approximately Mach 1.5. Just before impact, the eagle on the ground took flight, (obviously a coordinated tactic; probably pre-briefed) and the three crows that were watching the grounded eagle also took flight — thinking they were going to get in some more pecking on the big bird.
The first crow being targeted by the diving eagle never stood a snowball’s chance in hell. There was a mid-air explosion of black feathers, and that crow was done.
The diving eagle then banked hard left in what had to be a 9G climbing turn, using the energy it had accumulated in the dive, and hit crow #2 less than two seconds later. Another crow dead.
The grounded eagle, which was now airborne and had an altitude advantage on the remaining crow that was streaking eastward in full burner, made a short dive, then banked hard right when the escaping crow tried to evade the hit.
It didn’t work - crow #3 bit the dust at about 20 feet AGL. This aerial battle was better than any air show I’ve been to, including the War Birds show at Oshkosh.
The two eagles ripped the crows apart, and ate them on the ground; and, as I got closer and closer working my way across the field, I passed within 20 feet of one of them as it ate its catch. It stopped and looked at me as I went by, and you could see in the look of that bird that it knew who’s Boss of the Sky. What a beautiful bird!
I loved it. Not only did they kill their enemy, they ate them. One of the best Fighter Pilot stories I’ve seen in a long time.
Care to elaborate? I think, all the failures can be attributed to the quadrupeds’ parties, but I am open to differing opinions.
No tattoos for me, thanks all the same.
The eagle represents all that has been abandoned in this country, and that is why the jackass and the elefat came to power.
Doesn’t look like a tattoo to me, it’s a symbolic collage that would be a draw for a lot of people.
Do you advocate also turning away any potential supporters with tattoos? Big mistake if you do. Many of us old farts in our 60s have tattoos, many are patriotic in nature from our service time. A large number of very patriotic young servicemen also have tattoos and they also share the ideals of these forums and the desire to come up with a party that represents we the people and not they, the self-proclaimed ruling class. I would suggest welcoming all real, conservative, patriots regardless of skin annotations.
Tattoos are going to be around for quite a while, some crappy and ill-considered and some just fine. Get used to it.
Don’t over think this. The eagle represents America. America is failing. Find a new image for the second rising.
