I would have thought with that wind whipping so much that your shook ones would take longer to 'wake up' and march in. - that was cool to see - it was like a shot going through them the way they all turned for the hive. nice video.

Nice one Schawee. Loved the march in.

You sure are living right. Did you buy a lotto ticket after that bit of luck?  grin

But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."
