    A question for our British cousins on Independence Day....

    Since July 4th is Independence Day here in the US, I was curious.........

    Is July 4th the "Day We Got Our Asses Kicked By The Bloody Yanks" over there?

    Sorry, couldn't resist.

    No. It's the day we got rid of those troublesome colonials! And is celebrated as such by all Brits, but in secret so you lot don't put us on the 'To Bomb' list.

    It's OK, we're not that worried. You'd probably miss.

    Its history boys and girls. We are all the same team now. Remember there are people out there who want to bump both of us out of the picture, so its up to both the Yanks and Brits to BUMP back!

    And in case you don't speak Latin.......If you want peace, prepare for war.

    I've been places, seen and done things that would make most cry. I've fought along side and against better men then most I come across day to day, i've put my life on the line more then once for things you take for granted and for those you have lost respect for. I don't tell you this for your pity or respect but for you to remember me.

    Yeah, I agree. We need to create a solid front against the world of terrorists and disruptive, peasant beaters. So, when is England going to become a part of the US?
    And Shepards we shall be,
    for thee, My Lord, for thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
    That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
    And teeming with souls will it ever be.
    In Nomine Patris, Et Filli, Et Spiritus Sancti.

    One more thing to think about on July 4th: Considering the value of the dollar today, versus the value of the Brittish Pound back in 1773, we are being taxed more today by our own government, than the increase in taxes by the Brits that caused the Boston Tea Party.

    Fair Tax now

    Naw. That didn't happen until 1781. We just told them what would happen in 1776.

    The initial strikes, probably..

    But we go for quantity, not quality. Tons of bombs on an island does more damage than selectively placed bombs on an island..

    Just ask Saddam from the first gulf war. Be bombed shit twice just to drive the point home.

    4th of July

    Actually, we would have revolted earlier but the liberals in the Contental Congress voted against it. Said the it was all Georges (Washington, not their current wipping boy)fault. It was all a conspiracy by BIG TEA!
