Perfect picture for American Party to be.

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:

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.

My guess is the first comment from the media would be that it looks angry and aggressive.

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 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.

You like eagles? Check out this great story!!

Dog Fight

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.

His story:

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.

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.

I do feel that the gun in the hands of a proud, free man does remind one of the underlying meaning of the image in this particular case.

One may use imagery without devolving to idolatry.

You mean that dumb bird that hangs around in flocks that don't know enough not to get out of the road?

Maybe the Republicans should use that symbol.

I don’t care what the symbol is as long as they:

1]advocate ending world role providing blood and treasure for executive war whims and get a formal congressional declaration of war.

2] End job exporting unbalanced trade ‘free trade’ deals. Require trade to be balanced goods for goods.

3] All able bodied on doles should be required to show up every day for training.

I've had it with political parties in the traditional sense. Like I told some solicitor who called me awhile back about donating to the Republican Party, "I'm a Tea Party advocate, and I wouldn't give a cent to the GOP."

It’s not a tattoo, you can’t tattoo feathers. I’ve seen similar themed facepaint used to express patriotic passions; nothing wrong with it.

You know what? If I’m in a fight, for my life, the Constitution, my country, I would rather have a patriotic and committed person with a full face tattoo next to me in the trenches whom I feel I can rely on rather than someone who might have second thoughts about having my back because I have a tattoo, or maybe red hair or a different religious belief. This is a war kid, whether you believe it or not and it may get ugly before it gets better. Best to welcome all true supporters and patriots to the fight than to be exclusive because of physical traits.

Not that it’s your business or anyone else’s but NO, I do not have a face tattoo or neck art. I have a single Marine Corps emblem on my arm with my wife’s name on one side, mine on the other side and the year 1972 below the emblem; the year both of us who were Marines at the time were married.

I don’t think I’d want someone with your narrow-minded attitude next to me in any foxhole or any fight.

The Symbol should be inspiring, I think the right symbol is a big deal. Can you feel inspired just looking at a maggot? Although apparently a lot of imbeciles are inspired by the looks of a donkey :)

Ross Perots old 3rd Party used an eagle—We would be better off with something new—maybe a little silly. such as...
1. An Owl, wisdom
2. A Rattlesnake—Don’t tread on me.
3. A snapping turtle. —Don’t tread on me.
4. A Bear—maybe with cubs?
5. A Lion
6. A Raccoon (a symbol of the Whig Party)
7. A Rooster
8. A skunk
9. A Turkey—Ben Franklins favorite
10. A Bobcat.

I kinda go for The Minute Man image. No eagle, to my knowledge, although a magnificent bird, ever gave their lives or fortunes in the American cause. Plenty of men did. We are living at a time when evil is striving to kill the American dream of liberty and freedom. Fighting men and women are needed to eliminate this evil, every minute of every day. This is a time...a call to arms!

Occasionally, if cornered, adult turkeys may try to fight off predators and large male toms can be especially aggressive in self-defense. When fighting off predators, turkeys may kick with their legs, using the spurs on their back of the legs as a weapon, bite with their beak and ram with their relatively large bodies and may be able to deter predators up to the size of mid-sized mammals.[18][19] Occasionally, turkeys may behave aggressively towards humans, especially in areas where natural habitats are scarce, though attacks can usually be deterred and minor injuries can be avoided by giving turkeys a respectful amount of space and keeping outdoor spaces clean and undisturbed.[20]
