Michael's Dispatches


07 November 2012


To the citizens of the United States of America from Her Sovereign Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

In light of your failure in recent years to nominate competent candidates for President of the USA and thus to govern yourselves, we hereby give notice of the revocation of your independence, effective immediately. (You should look up 'revocation' in the Oxford English Dictionary.)

Her Sovereign Majesty Queen Elizabeth II will resume monarchical duties over all states, commonwealths, and territories (except North Dakota, which she does not fancy).

Your new Prime Minister, David Cameron, will appoint a Governor for America without the need for further elections.

Congress and the Senate will be disbanded. A questionnaire may be circulated next year to determine whether any of you noticed.

To aid in the transition to a British Crown dependency, the following rules are introduced with immediate effect:


1. The letter 'U' will be reinstated in words such as 'colour,' 'favour,' 'labour' and 'neighbour.' Likewise, you will learn to spell 'doughnut' without skipping half the letters, and the suffix '-ize' will be replaced by the suffix '-ise.' Generally, you will be expected to raise your vocabulary to acceptable levels. (look up 'vocabulary').


2. Using the same twenty-seven words interspersed with filler noises such as ''like' and 'you know' is an unacceptable and inefficient form of communication. There is no such thing as U.S. English. We will let Microsoft know on your behalf. The Microsoft spell-checker will be adjusted to take into account the reinstated letter 'u'' and the elimination of '-ize.'


3. July 4th will no longer be celebrated as a holiday.


4. You will learn to resolve personal issues without using guns, lawyers, or therapists. The fact that you need so many lawyers and therapists shows that you're not quite ready to be independent. Guns should only be used for shooting grouse. If you can't sort things out without suing someone or speaking to a therapist, then you're not ready to shoot grouse.


5. Therefore, you will no longer be allowed to own or carry anything more dangerous than a vegetable peeler. Although a permit will be required if you wish to carry a vegetable peeler in public.


6. All intersections will be replaced with roundabouts, and you will start driving on the left side with immediate effect. At the same time, you will go metric with immediate effect and without the benefit of conversion tables. Both roundabouts and metrication will help you understand the British sense of humour.


7. The former USA will adopt UK prices on petrol (which you have been calling gasoline) of roughly $10/US gallon. Get used to it.


8. You will learn to make real chips. Those things you call French fries are not real chips, and those things you insist on calling potato chips are properly called crisps. Real chips are thick cut, fried in animal fat, and dressed not with catsup but with vinegar.


9. The cold, tasteless stuff you insist on calling beer is not actually beer at all. Henceforth, only proper British Bitter will be referred to as beer, and European brews of known and accepted provenance will be referred to as Lager. South African beer is also acceptable, as they are pound for pound the greatest sporting nation on earth and it can only be due to the beer. They are also part of the British Commonwealth - see what it did for them. American brands will be referred to as Near-Frozen Gnat's Urine, so that all can be sold without risk of further confusion.


10. Hollywood will be required occasionally to cast English actors as good guys. Hollywood will also be required to cast English actors to play English characters. Watching Andie Macdowell attempt English dialect in Four Weddings and a Funeral was an experience akin to having one's ears removed with a cheese grater.


11. You will cease playing American football. There is only one kind of proper football; you call it soccer. Those of you brave enough will, in time, be allowed to play rugby (which has some similarities to American football, but does not involve stopping for a rest every twenty seconds or wearing full kevlar body armour like a bunch of nancies).


12. Further, you will stop playing baseball. It is not reasonable to host an event called the World Series for a game which is not played outside of America. Since only 2.1% of you are aware there is a world beyond your borders, your error is understandable. You will learn cricket, and we will let you face the South Africans first to take the sting out of their deliveries.


13.. You must tell us who killed JFK. It's been driving us mad.


14. An internal revenue agent (i.e. tax collector) from Her Majesty's Government will be with you shortly to ensure the acquisition of all monies due (backdated to 1776).


15. Daily Tea Time begins promptly at 4 p.m. with proper cups, with saucers, and never mugs, with high quality biscuits (cookies) and cakes; plus strawberries (with cream) when in season.

God Save the Queen!

Nothing makes me laugh today, Michael...even something that is truly funny. 11/6/12, a second Day Which Will Live In Infamy. To have re-elected a man who hates America, wants and now will get the opportunity to "fundamentally change" her thoroughly, destroy the free enterprise system, destroy freedom of conscience and religion, destroy the middle class..on and on and on. Eric Holder will remain in office. John Kerry will become Secretary of State or perhaps even Defense. Our military will be further debased and PC'd. There will be a Constitutional Convention in which our Constitution will be scrapped. Oh, God, what a state of despair I am in...nearly comparable to that felt by those good Germans who foresaw what Hitler would do to Germany and made every effort to get out before the dictatorship imprisoned or killed them. We were the last best hope. Now we have opted for socialism!!! We have an utter FAILURE as President and people left him in the Oval Office. U.N.B.E.L.I.E.V .A.B.L.E!! The saying "We get what we deserve" apparently applies here. Over the precipice and gone forever.

While certainly not in as much despair as I was on 11-7-12, I am being proven right re Obama's hatred of America and Americans who disagree with his vow to "fundamentally change" our beloved nation. His penchant for blaming everyone but himself is straight out of the leftie playbook he was indoctrinated with since birth. His petty viciousness is added in via his Chicago mob of red diaper babies. Try as he may, he has not pulled the welfare wool over everyone's eyes. We see him for who he is...a lost little boy abandoned by his parents and taking it out on America, blaming her as the cause of every world ill. And as for the idiot who intimates I don't like Obama because of his race, I'll flash my civil rights credentials and match them up to anything he can show. He's a racist for suggesting race matters rather than policy.

What rubbish, Deidre. By the way, this little article first came out during GW's "reign". Now THAT era, thanks to Mr. Cheney, was when we came closest to emulating the what Hitler did to Europe--as confirmed by Europeans (now U.S. Citizens) who lived through that era of fear mongering that the Nazis were so good at. John Kerry is, actually, our Secretary of State. And on that note, always interested me, when I was in Iraq during that election, how so many of the Vietnam Vets (my era) that were working there were so adamantly opposed to Kerry--who, regardless of the Silver Star issue, at least volunteered for service and volunteered for Vietnam--but supported two draft dodgers, GW and Richard "I had other priorities" Cheney.

gachong 84, Kerry did not "volunteer." Where did you get that idea? From the same source which says that George W. Bush is a draft dodger? As for Cheney, I don't find his draft deferment status particularly admirable and will leave it to his own conscience.

Sorry that you cannot see what a disaster Obama is for our nation. Most lefties are congenitally unable to view their philosophy as the ugly, freedom-hating, anti-self-relia nce garbage it is.

Seriously. Ya'll need to grow up. You keep moaning like it's some new Soviet Union ya'll living in. The sole point that you can moan and bitch the way you do openly here kind of proves you are not.

So what, Obama is black, and I bet that kinda stings in a majority of you guys eyes, he might not run the politics you want. But to go as far as to start bitching and moaning about living in a dictatorship and what not. Are you guys serious? How about you guys go live in North Korea, or maybe Cuba, or perhaps even China before you start bitching and moaning about how terrible it is in the USA. I betcha tons of people in those above mentioned countries, not to mention Iraq and Afghanistan, Belarus and a score of other nations would gladly trade their life for yours any day.

Take a moment and grow up please, all this Obamacrying is getting so tiresome by now.

The color or Obama's skin has nothing to do with it. It is his policies and ideology that are the problem. He has spoken very plainly that he wants to change America from within.
Your argument about the people in other countries sounds like my mother when I was a child and wouldn't eat my lima beans."children in other countries are starving" There is not much I can do about that.
And as far as "Obamacrying" The democrates are still crying about Bush. Tell me, when will it be Obama's fault?
BTW - Michael loved this post and all the others. Thank you for the job you do.

Does not matter what you say. It was the same crying from the democrat way when Bush was in power, and I found that equally childish. The very fact that there is a democrat president in office right now proved them wrong. Just like it will prove the doomsday-we-liv e-in-a-socialis t-state people wrong the next time there is a republican president elected, and believe me, that will happen too.

I never meant for you to do anything about the situation in either of the countries i mentioned. More like compare your own country to those countries, and ask yourself if USA is really the same as those countries?

Right now what I think USA needs is for people to stop bickering back and forth on who is more right than the other, and perhaps select the middle way and go forward working together to make a better nation.

No one side has the final and best sollution to USA's needs. Its a too vast country with too many different ideas and people in it. The only way to really get the nation going again is to co-operate and whatever levels one feels one connect. I doubt that democrats and republicans disagree on just about everything, there is common ground between the two, and thats where the work needs to start.

Remember whiteys, if you disagree with Obummer, it's not because you have a different view or position, it's because you're a racist.

However, it's not racist for all blacks, oh, excuse me "African Americans" to vote for Obummer because he's, uh, well, sort of African American, Half-white? Half-black? Hawaiian, or whatever the media wants him to be at any given moment.

It is however racist for whiteys not to vote for him because he is, uh, whatever the media needs him to be fill in your story here.

Well, you have tools like Bill O'reilly claiming one of the reasons for Obamas victories was due to the demographics changing, and that the white establishment was no longer in majority. (You can't have fair and open elections when the white establishment is not in a majority? o.O)

Add to that wonderful quotes off this pages such as.

"All this make the mitten and the Repug party the accomplices of that illegal alien in the White House Barack HUSSEIN Obama"

"A pro Islamic terrorist Communist cretin who has surrounded himself with like minded communists and socialists! A half-white never gainfully employed jackanapes who, has done nothing to create a better world for us and our children, just more tax and spend rhetoric with promises of nothing but more taxes and more spending on entitlement programs that no one has a Constitutional right to in the first place!"

Just to quote a few, but im sure that has nothing to do with racism at all.

Then again granted, many of you do have valid points as well, but seem to lack to see that they get hijacked by people with perhaps less open minded attitudes, and I see very little of refuting comments like these on here, which I find kind of scary.

@Mike Z - In your opinion, when should we start blaming Obama for the disaster of Iraq? How about the fact that Jr put both wars on a credit card that had to be paid after he left office? When should we begin blaming Obama for the worst jobs growth between 2001 and 2009? When should we start blaming Obama for taking the Clinton surplus and putting his and the Republican Party's spending spree on our collective credit card?
Despite the unprecedented use of the filibuster, and a Congress whose leadership vowed to make their number one objective over the subsequent 4 years, the goal of making Obama a one term president, we have come back from the brink......we came as close to a complete economic meltdown as we had at anytime since the Great Depression. Our entire automobile industry was on the verge of collapse. Personal bankruptcies due to medical expenses were at historic highs and government growth was spiraling out of control......al l of that has now changed in the positive....... and not because of the Right, but rather because of those that reject the Right.
No doubt Stephen Colbert was on to something when he said that "Reality has a well-known Liberal bias."

A few years ago I wrote a letter to LCDR Roy Boehm after reading his incredible story (google him or better yet, read his book). This guy is a hero of mine and I just wanted to reach out to him to let him know how much I appreciated his service and sacrifice and the example he set for me and the son I am raising. He wrote me a thoughtful response that focused in particular on supporting our leadership. He was specific in his words that we should as a nation back our leadership while they are in office and hope for their success even when we disagree with some of their ideas. He wrote how a nation divided on its leadership left itself weak to its enemies. He was talking about President Bush at the time but it applies just as much today.

Last Sunday you probably watched your favorite football team on TV. You may have sat with your jaw dropped at a call your team's coach made that you just knew would hurt your chances at success. You probably thought that what he did or said must surely be hurting the collective morale of his players. But you probably wouldn't consider removing him from the sideline in the middle of the game. And you probably still had respect for him as a leader and hope that he would lead his team to success. You wished success for him in the midst of decisions you disagreed with because his success meant the team's success.

God Bless the USA!

Grow up kids. Obama won, now its time take the conspiracy theories and go lay them down by your dish. I hope that all elected people will grow a set and learn to govern. And if you think what you signed to Grover Norquist, will keep you from acting like an adult and doing your job it is time to quit.

I trust all elected officials will remember the Oath you take, is to the United States of America and the Constitution. And not ALEC,Norquist or the Chamber of Commerce. YOU applied for a job, the voters are your BOSS, not Rush nor Fox News. Living breathing people,despite what the Supreme Court says about corporations.

Democrats, you hold office too and are just as responsible for the mess this country is in. You weren't given a majority because Americans, just don't trust any One party in complete control, that notion can lead to excess and chaos. You have been as much of an obstruction as the other guys.

Both parties can squabble in their sandbox all you want, but when its time to pick up your and toys and work together DO IT. Remember the rest of the country is always aware we can be outsourced, as can any other bunch of unproductive whiners as are both political parties. So grow up and start doing your JOB.

and speaking of childish, here's another view from Sen. Ted Stevens' series of tubes http://www.michaelyon-online.com/components/com_jcomments/images/smiles/lol.gif:

Subject: "Dear Red States...

Dear Red States:

We're ticked off at your Neanderthal attitudes and politics and we've decided we're leaving.

We in New York intend to form our own country and we're taking the other Blue States with us.

In case you aren't aware that includes California, Hawaii, Oregon, Washington, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois and the rest of the Northeast.

We believe this split will be beneficial to the nation and especially to the people of the new country of The Enlightened States of America (E.S.A).

To sum up briefly:
You get Texas, Oklahoma and all the slave states.

We get stem cell research and the best beaches.

We get Andrew Cuomo and Elizabeth Warren. You get Bobby Jindal and Todd Akin.

We get the Statue of Liberty. You get OpryLand.

We get Intel and Microsoft. You get WorldCom.

We get Harvard. You get Ole' Miss.

We get 85 percent of America's venture capital and entrepreneurs.

You get Alabama.

We get two-thirds of the tax revenue. You get to make the red states pay their fair share.

Since our aggregate divorce rate is 22 percent lower than the Christian Coalition's, we get a bunch of happy families. You get a bunch of single moms.

With the Blue States in hand we will have firm control of 80% of the country's fresh water, more than 90% of the pineapple and lettuce, 92% of the nation's fresh fruit, 95% of America's quality wines (you can serve French wines at state dinners) 90% of all cheese, 90 percent of the high tech industry, most of the US low sulfur coal, all living redwoods, sequoias and condors, all the Ivy and Seven Sister schools plus Harvard, Yale, Stanford, Cal Tech and MIT.

With the Red States you will have to cope with 88% of all obese Americans and their projected health care costs, 92% of all US mosquitoes, nearly 100% of the tornadoes, 90% of the hurricanes, 99% of all Southern Baptists, virtually 100% of all televangelists, Rush Limbaugh, Bob Jones University, Clemson and the University of Georgia.

We get Hollywood and Yosemite, thank you.

38% of those in the Red states believe Jonah was actually swallowed by a whale, 62% believe life is sacred unless we're discussing the death penalty or gun laws, 44% say that evolution is only a theory, 53% that Saddam was involved in 9/11 and 61% of you crazy bastards believe you are people with higher morals then we lefties.

We're taking the good weed too. You can have that crap they grow in Mexico.

* As North Dakota has the economic clout to pay its bills, and still leave some in the bank;
* has the nuclear deterrence capability of the formerly USAF, now NDAF, bases located within its territory;
* has the capability to produce and refine its own oil with more for export;
* has the hydroelectric and wind power capacity to provide more than what it needs, etc., etc.

We look forward to future economic cooperation, at applicable international rates.

We are curious however, just what you plan on attempting to do about the Sovereign State of Texas?

Hey Queenie,

Nice to hear from you. To clear up a couple of points of confusion... 1. I don't want to embarrass you, but it must be said (and you know it as well as I do, saying you are going to revocate our independence is like Crimea announcing it's annexing Russia. 2. The donut was invented here, so we can spell it any old damn way we please. 3. Lee Harvey Oswald killed JFK. Please don't help spread silly conspiracy rumors.

Your friend,

Royal Protocol does not permit Her Majesty to respond directly, therefore I refer you to the British Press. Good Day!

Embarrassing as it is, I should really point out that America never really attained independence.
If it did (and I have somehow missed out a chapter in history) I would really like to know more about the democratic vote or referendum that triggered HRH to proclaim independence.
If such an event has occurred without HRH's approval, I can only suggest it is:
a) a coup
b) a terrorist state
c) A dictatorship
Don't believe me? Ask John Kerry...

I thought a coup and a revolution were essentially the same thing. Either way, the British were the first second nation, after France, to recognize American independence by signing the Treaty of Paris after Yorktown. Thus making the United States the only major nation in history to fight for, and procure, its own independence.

An excellent catch, well done, my friend, I partially concede the point. We did not invent it - but look how Queen Elizabeth's illustrious forebears spelled it: 'dow nuts' . I repeat: 'dow nuts,' So where does she get off chiding us for skipping bunch of letters, when the problem is actually her putting a bunch of extra letters in. We are much closer to the mark that she is, you must concede that point if you are a gentleman and a scholar.

Unbelieveable. You have taken a bit of humour and turned into intense political back biting. Ya all deserve one another. To the few of you who saw the humour, congratulations .
