"Plain and simple, the British were the only ones to ever own America, except for those thieving injuns."
I love it!
"This is not about land or money...but the one thing that no man should never be able to take from another man: the freedom to make his own choices about his life, where he'll live, how he'll live, how he'll raise his family. "
Being a product of English and Irish heritage, I've often thought of Great Britain as the "mother country."
Three summers ago while touring Northern Europe and the British Isles, we found ourselves in London on July 4th. At the time, England's "football" (soccer) team was engaged in the World Cup finals. There were parties and celebrations practically everywhere. While at a pub enjoying a pint of Guinness with fish & chips, I jokingly asked if the English were celebrating July 4th? After a brief pause, the meaning finally sunk in and was not well received. I thought it was funny, until my wife reminded me I was unarmed, as per local custom.
Anyway, the English team got it's butt kicked, by Italy I think.
