We invented the Internet and gave you the language you mangle today. We invented the programmable electronic computer two years before you lot did. As for the Military, at one point a third of the World was ruled by Britannia!
As far as we're concerned, you're ALL rebels :lol:
Happy Traitors Day, you ungrateful Colonists!
This commment is unpublished.· 3 years agoGreat riposte. However, it's a common and unfortunate misapprehension that the UK "invented the Internet". Sir Tim (Berners-Lee) invented the world wide web, which is a totally different proposition. (Those ignorant of the distinction are commended to Wikipedia.) The Internet was "invented" (to speak a little broadly) by the Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA) of the United States Department of Defense, more than three decades earlier. Side note: I'm both American and British, and live in the UK. Both Mr. Yon's post, and your reply, are happily and gratefully received on this day. 8^)

I don't see any Winston Churchill quality leaders in your future. So who is going to save you from yourselves? Americans fought and won our independence from you and came to your side twice the past century.We can't save you from the WOGS and Eastern Oriental Gentlemen that the UK has allowed to flood your shores and are multiplying like rabbits. The long and honorable traditions of the UK are quickly fading into oblivion!
This commment is unpublished.· 3 years agoWhat a vile little racist you are, FThomas.
London has a Muslim Mayor. We like him, he was elected in a Democratic process by a large number of white Christians as well as Muslims. The UK was actually i the process of cutting the Colonies loose.
Suck it up, Princess.

People flee to places like US, UK and Canada to get free. There is a long tradition of them fighting for it too. Ever heard of the 442 Regimental Combat Team?
The UK has equivalent formations. Yeah, they're all "wogs".
This commment is unpublished.· 3 years agoDaniel, Obama is actually very well regarded in the UK. We don't feel he had much of an impact to be honest.
We like Obama.
The Donald, on the other hand...
This commment is unpublished.· 3 years agoMeanwhile Daniel, President Obama holds a 79% confidence rating in the UK and 77% across EU countries polled in the latest Pew Research aggregate June poll. Those darn facts always get in the way of anger and remorse.
Here's for you $.
Thirteen United States of America
In Congress, July 4, 1776
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness; that, to secure these rights, governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed; that whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security. Such has been the patient sufferance of these colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former systems of government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute tyranny over these states. To prove this, let facts be submitted to a candid world.
And for the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.
