If that's the case, how long do you think it will last? With the woke left canceling everything that offends them, and Christianity one of the top offenders (even if it is Mormon Christian ideology). The lawsuits for violating the "separation between Church and State" and disenfranchised Muslims being offended, must be flooding in!

The beehive is one of the most common and enduring symbols within Mormonism, used ubiquitously. For example, it appears in publications, logos, architecture, and as the name of one of the Young Women’s classes. It is an official emblem for the state of Utah, where it is used on the state seal, the state flag, highway signs, historic money, police cars, and more. The beehive is used widely in popular culture and names of businesses in Utah. Today the beehive is seen as a symbol of industry, teamwork, and unity. But evidence shows that Church leaders in the late 1840s had a different concept in mind. For them, the beehive represented the kingdom of God. This photo essay presents uses of the beehive in its historical and sacred settings in Mormonism.

The beehive and beekeeping are ancient Egyptian as you can get. A guy by the name of Jo Smith drove around in a wagon with a
sarcophagus in the back with mummy in it claiming to have translated a reformed Egytian language from gold plates.

I see the flag symbols as giving back to the original Egyptians the legends of most current religions.

They are still Utards.

New flag looks like the background art for a ski resort website. Meanwhile, UDOT wants to build a gondola up one of the canyons for the skiers to use - at taxpayer expense! These same resorts pay nothing in taxes or wages either but charge hundreds of dollars a day for a ski pass. Apparently they are buying off the right state legislators.

I'm certain, it's only a matter of time for us.


@jameslavish

If you work 40 hrs/wk: at 5% inflation and after 5 years, you need a 28% pay raise or to work 44 more hours (*one full extra week* per month+) to make up the difference.

This is inflation

On the other hand, Utah's economy is so good that the Gov just signed a $460 million tax cut bill. Yes, cut. That's the result of the non-liberals here.
It’s not really a cut. Check your property taxes! Also look how much you’re paying in online sales taxes. Idaho, Colorado, even California got tax rebates… an actual tax refund! Utah has had 4.5 billion in surplus in the last 2 years. That is enough to give every family or household a check for $4500. The state is spending Almost 30k per household per year to provide state government. Instead you might see $200 cut but probably not once the inflation has caused your wages to hopefully go up.

The new flag is universally hated. Only 10% at best think it should be replaced.

I call our governor caillou after the cartoon character. He us a dipchit

Years ago, the fine for hunting birds without a license was less than the cost of a non-res license and the odds of getting caught were pretty low. The area around Burley and Rupert, ID was known as a pheasant mecca and hordes of UT hunters would hit it on opening weekend. Many of them didn't buy licenses. Also, many of them would steal bird dogs, bring them up for the weekend, and then dump them. Local farmers often had stray bird dogs to deal with after the opener.

But that was years ago. Now the fine for illegal hunting is pretty stiff. Also, since the invention of the pivot sprinkler, you won't see a pheasant a week. There's no cover for them. Hunting in that area now isn't worth the time and gas to get there.
