The propaganda machine is getting more transparent as we learn that "Obamacare" is being 'slipped into' television plot lines...borderline subliminal messaging here isn' this?

No, Not boring, the world has become just very very sad. The America that our forefathers build and established is now taken love by people that don't love this country but want to make it something else.

They want to make a it a third world country like the ones that they left. Look at Miami, -- for instance, Look in general at the state of Florida.

Love the Jamaican flag. Brings back memories of great vacations there. If it is meant as a negative, don't bother. Drugs are everywhere, including this country?

Do not understand the use of the JAMAICAN flag a in the USA there are worse things happening there. It not good that Jamaica gets all the bad things said about it. Look at the positives and what that will offer. Jamaica land we love.

The reference in the article #6 is about "drugs flowing through the Caribbean." What's with having the Jamaican flag on full blast? This is ridiculous!!!

Not getting why the Jamaican flag is at full mass above the negatives?, but if I were to take a guess, it has something to do with breaking down borders? In God I trust and honor always.

I suppose that the Jamaican flag is to also remind us that (1)although it is a tiny island, Jamaica is the largest English speaking partner of both Canada and the United States, south of the US; (2) several US Statesmen have Jamaican roots i.e Colin Powell and Jacob DeCordova;(3) the last colonial governor of New York who was highly respected by most of the colony, Sir Henry Moore, was a Jamaican who certain religious associations did not like because he wanted to establish a playhouse in New York. Moore, incidentally, was the only native colonist ever governor of colonial New York.
