I got your letter. Call me and perhaps we can sort this out before things get a little out of hand?
Dear George III,
Stop by for tea sometime...
We'll have a chat...
The water of Boston Harbor lends it and excellent flavor...
Are those Indians throwing our tea in your harbor?
*Edit* Hang on a minute! They're funny looking Indians.
I was just reading at Wikipedia and I think I see why the Brits lost...
They didn't want to fight...
I love learning about history...
I think they were just politely saying that perhaps America was not worth fighting for. Hand guns. Overhead power cables. No public health care provision. Inadequate education funding. Failing infrastructure. It was all very primitive. Some might perhaps say it still is.
But seriously, we did have naval superiority at that time. It was on the land where things got tricky. If we had been playing you at 'home' we would have wiped the floor with you and everyone here would be sounding like the Geiko gecko. You could have scarcely won without French help.
You were a painful boil we so desperately needed to lance. I remain a loyalist through and through.
Ian I found a special song just for you...
I'll be watching some friends of mine march in the 4th parade...
I love the sound of their drums...
A small bunch of guys can sound like a whole army coming...
Musta scared the hell outta them brits...
That ain't nothing compared to what we have in our back pocket.
All of this could have been avoided if you had just agreed to pay a little bit of tax.
Was that so much to ask?
A couple of dollars out of your pay checks to help the poor and needy.
And you could not even give them that.
I trust you received our reply to your "declaration"? We would like to return peace to our colonies and plantations. Come back to Papa.
Thanks Ian I love those skirts they are wearing and those funny hats...
Is that a black bear riding on his head?
Today we will celebrate walking on ground once part of the declining empire and celebrate the running of the Brit's out of town by a group of hicks from Vermont...
Funny how we didn't just do it once either...
My Lords, and Gentlemen,
Nothing could have afforded Me so much Satisfaction as to have been able to inform you, at the Opening of this Session, that the Troubles, which have so long distracted My Colonies in North America, were at an End; and that My unhappy People, recovered from their Delusion, had delivered themselves from the Oppression of their Leaders, and returned to their Duty. But so daring and desperate is the Spirit of those Leaders, whose Object has always been Dominion and Power, that they have now openly renounced all Allegiance to the Crown, and all political Connection with this Country. They have rejected, with Circumstances of Indignity and Insult, the Means of Conciliation held out to them under the Authority of Our Commission: and have presumed to set up their rebellious Confederacies for Independent States. If their Treason be suffered to take Root, much Mischief must grow from it, to the Safety of My loyal Colonies, to the Commerce of My Kingdoms, and indeed to the present System of all Europe.
One great Advantage, however, will be derived from the Object of the Rebels being openly avowed, and clearly understood. We shall have Unanimity at Home, founded in the general Conviction of the Justice and Necessity of Our Measures.
I am happy to Inform you, that, by the Blessing of Divine Providence on the good Conduct and Valour of My Officers and Forces by Sea and Land, and on the Zeal and Bravery of the Auxiliary Troops in My Service, Canada is recovered; and although, from unavoidable Delays, the Operations at New York could not begin before the Month of August, the Success in that Province has been so important as to give the strongest Hopes of the most decisive good Consequences. But, notwithstanding this fair Prospect, We must, at all Events, prepare for another Campaign.
Where's my tea bags?
Oh, that's right, I drink coffee. Most of my relatives left Englund for good reasons.
One reason it the tradition that Englund is steeped in. We like new ideas and run with them.
This thread is just a nother example of beating a dead horse. Get over it Ian.
We left the "OLD" world for a reason.
I realize that this new world seems futuristic, but it's just people getting ideas and running with them.
A king or queen? why?
Are they that hard up for someone to look up to?
Around here, we have parents as role models. We don't need goofy people in a castle.
I would go there to visit, but live there?
Thank God I'm an American.
The reason those Indians look funny, is that YOUR Indians come from India, ours come from the New World, soon to be called the United States.
Yep. And look where it got us. Thanks America.
Rumour has it they were not Indians at all. But Americans who dressed up. I hope this is not true else I will be most displeased.
God Save the Queen.
Lots better'n these eh?
Looks like the queen better listen...
These things have a way of getting out of hand...
Ian, you seem to love coming on this forum bashing all things American, BUT you continue to live here. Why?
There is no place in this world like the USA. God Bless the USA!
I like the place. I just question the ownership.
Are you sure it's not still the Colonies?
Ian, How is the Queen doing on her budget cutting...
She's not going to risk another uprising is she?
Redwood, I would prefer that you refer to Her Majesty the Queen as "Her Majesty".
And, for the record, Her Majesty's finances are doing just fine.
Although a little tea tax would help.
Guess you are still talking about queen lizzie.
