1. RCF Will Be In Flux For a few. I'm going as fast as I can correcting issues. We should be good to go by Monday. Sorry you have to deal with this bland board until then.

    I was talking about this last night, but it was glazed over, so I'll post it here in it's own thread, since it's pretty damn big news...

    http://news.yahoo.com/puerto-ricans-opt-statehood-referendum-134423786.html

    People saying it won't be approved because the Republicans control the House, and Puerto Rico has shown to be very Democratic in the past, but other people saying if that happens, then the Republicans can forget about winning Florida for a while because of the amount of Puerto Ricans that live there.

    Hope it happens. And if it does, buy some stock in a flag company.

    Regarding stocks, I looked up Annin Flagmakers which claims to be "the oldest and largest company" that makes flags; and they are private, so not really sure if there is anyway to make money off of this. :chuckles:

    So does that mean they will start hanging small American flags from their rear view mirrors now?

    Can I become part of the US too? We won't add too many people to the country, but Canada would be the biggest state in the country.

    Yea, but you just said Puerto Rico is heavily Democratic in the first place, so I'm guessing Puerto Ricans that live in Florida and are US citizens aren't voting Republican in the first place.

    I'm pretty sure I want to. Lower taxes, lower mcnugget prices, and maybe I could catch a few Cavs games on TV... Sounds like a win imo.
