We, the people of the former American colonies, would like to offer our most sincere apology over that little misunderstanding we had 236 years ago. Had we known that we were going to be subjects anyway, we could have saved a lot of trouble and hard feelings.
We were under the mistaken belief that we would be free, sovereign citizens; we believed that our hard work would yield its own rewards without someone coming along and taking what we built in the name of Fairness. We thought our laws and Constitution would protect us from a foreign born dictator, and our freedom to worship would prevent us from becoming a corrupt, morally bankrupt society (silly us).
Little did we know that our own free press would intentionally sabotage, deceive and withhold the truth from us in order to reelect a Socialist that still holds distain for our nation and contempt for its founding principles. Nor did we believe that there would be so many citizens dependent on government handouts that they would blindly elect an unqualified charlatan, let alone reelect him.
Anyway, Your Grace, we are truly sorry and humbly sincerely beg your forgiveness. If you can find it in your heart to forgive us and take us back, we promise never to trade British oppression for Socialist tyranny again.
Your most humble servants,
The American People
What? England is in even worse shape.
You’re sending this to Elton John?
No Liberals allowed.
I think we should be apologizing to Ben Franklin
Sorry Ben, we couldn’t keep it
Great solution. We then could add hordes of bearded Imams to our current dependent classes. England, where Mohammed is the most popular name for new born boys. What could go wrong with this scenario, huh.
Do come back, Your Majesty. All is forgiven.
Nope. I’d trade her Massachusetts and California for Canada.
Why do nonsense stories like this get so widely spread? I'm not blaming you - it's easy to believe them when people keep repeating them. But last year, Mohammed was the 19th most common boys name for new born boys. The top ten are:
Britain's Islamic population is growing quickly but for the moment, it's still a fairly small minority across the country.
Its growing quickly from a small base, and the birth rate amongst Britain’s muslim community is falling very rapidly.
The situation in this country today is as if the Federal
Government has become a nation unto itself and will rule us
(private sector) like a defeated nation that it has invaded
I will ONLY refer to the Federal Government henceforth as the
Federal nation. The Federal Nation will confiscate as much
treasure from us as it can like a defeated enemy is forced to
pay war reparations.
We are no better off than we were under King George in 1776.
“Youre sending this to Elton John?”
Of course. Freddie Mercury’s dead. :)
That’s good to hear. It’s probably a sign of assimilation. I’ve met quite a few Moslems when I’ve been in the UK and those I’ve met wanted no part of the extremist ideology. They’d come to the UK to get away from the problems. If they can just live their lives with their religion just being their religious identity within a context of being and becoming British in general outlook, that’d be wonderful. I felt a lot safer in areas of London with large numbers of ‘Asian’ Moslems than I did in the areas that seemed Chav filled.
No apologies accepted here. You didn't want to be under our rule so what you have is your problem, not ours.
No, it is not possible at this late date to correct the past. What is done is done, live it or die with it. We have our concerns to deal with and don't need more.
You've traded freedom for license, permissiveness for liberty and count it a great thing not knowing you've traded down and not caring any more.
You have your drugs, your pornography, your hedonism that like a huge machine rolls over every principle, every virtue proclaimed in your revolt. You remember the words but not the meaning. Live with it.
You've consumed your seed corn and are now fighting over the last few grains. You're on your own. We have our own problems to address.
Her Majesty, The Queen.
Heinlein's idea of a person working to earn citizenship is a bit extreme, but why not grant voting rights only if a person has contributed to the community
It doesn't have to be a stint in the military -- it can be community service physical or otherwise.
I knew a lot of Muslims in Berlin, predominantly of the Turkish variety. Like their British counterparts, they wanted nothing to do with radicalism. Many of them were quite delighted to learn I was an American, from Los Angeles originally, a nation they regard with near-mythic status.
And like you, I felt far safer in my neighborhood (Kreuzberg - or Kreuzstanbul as some have dubbed it) than I did in other neighborhoods filled with the local German leftie youth. Those kids are nasty, scruffy, ill-tempered anarchist brats.
An amusing anecdote; one of my neighbors was a dentist and part-time Sufi Sheikh. He liked to drop by from time to time to practice his English with me. One day, out of a clear blue sky, he asked “Why is President Obama trying to make America a socialist country?” This caused me to start choking on the tea I was drinking. It also led to a great political discussion.
