IT'S A GOOD SONG YOU MUDVAYNE LOVING BASTARDS!! ;)

It is, though it gets played too much and getsold after a while.

Happy Good Riddance Day

You know what? I think our two countries have been seperate for too long. That's why I'm starting an initiative to reintegrate the wayward state of England back into the U.S.A. I'm sure you realize the folly of your little monarchy by now, and are willing to come home where it's safe. ;-)

Yes.. Happy 4th of July.
We don't celebrate it in Europe, but I don't see a reason not to do it today :)

I feel like partying!

Are the British still upset over their defeat? Jeez guys, get over it. Not like we rub it in your faces all the time......just once a year.

No. I'd say the prevailing uninformed attitude in Britain is that we don't understand why you felt you had to do it. Then again they don't teach the American War of Independance in British schools (not because we lost, but because they aren't keen on teaching anything that could be seen as imperialist - damn liberals).
Well they probably do but it's just one among many optional modules - we have a lot of history so you have to be selective.

Still, if you ever get tired of that Dubya fellow then I'm sure we'd be happy to accept you back as another member nation of the UK :-P.

According to what I've learned about the War o' Independence, the Americans were annoyed at paying taxes on tea (which they had no use of in the colonies)

The British were taxing pretty much everything, so we up and started a Revolution. And we kicked the Redcoats' asses back to England.
King George was a bastard. Plain and simple.
Sorry if the above offends any Englishman. :)

Oh we still pay taxes...due to this over-corrupted, bastardized POS we call the United States government. :(

It's amazin when you think about it ya'll......... we started a war back in da day so that we would NOT be taxed on tons of stuff against our will......... and yet to dis very day we are STILL taxed on just about everything in existance.

And as for bein ruled by a bastard, of a cockless asshole for a king named George....... what exactly would most people consider president GEORGE Bush to be exactly? Things HAVE improved slightly, but it's all kinda ironic to me when I think about it.

It's sad really........... mad peeps fought a war and died over 200 years ago to stop somethin from happenin, so that it could just start happenin all over again about a hundred years later. I wonder when da US government will go too far and piss of the american people to da point where we have yet another revolutionary war?

So basically the Americans didn't like having an overall government which they had little control over. Fair enough.

Of course, we British can still stick to the view that you would have got fair government in time anyway. So the War of Independance comes down to a excercise in speeding up the spread of democracy to the colonies. There are plenty of worse reasons for wars I suppose.

Wars are great for the economy, that is why America starts a war almost every 20 years.

"He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the consent of our legislatures."

"He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:"

"For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:"

"For depriving us, in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:"

"For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences:"

"He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us."

"He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people."

"He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty and perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation."

Hmmm... all of this sounds VERY familiar indeed.
