Icebergs sometimes have stripes, formed by layers of ice deposited on different conditions. Blue stripes are created when a crevice in the ice sheet fills up with melted water and freezes so quickly that no bubbles form. Green stripes form when an iceberg falls into the sea and a layer of water rich in algae freezes onto the bottom. Brown, black and yellow lines are caused by sediment, picked up when the ice sheet grinds downhill towards the sea.

- The women’s vote is against you because you’re taking their rights away. (abortion, health care and birth control)
- The gay vote is against you because you’re refusing legal marriage rights.
- The middle class vote is against you because you can’t see how tax raises effect people who aren’t millionaires.
- And your slogan was originally the 1920’s KKK tag line.
