Treason? Consdering that many of the settlers 'chosen' to go NA were the unwanted, I'd say Britian betrayed them first. Can you betray someone who was never loyal to you in the first place?

We may learn a lesson, and things may get better in the end…
So that’s the trade off…life experience for exhaustion… wisdom for innocence.
There may be a happy ending to our stories…
but we paid for that with little pieces of our souls and we will never get those back."

Don't hate us because we're beautiful.  Hate us because we're larger and wealthier than you.  :lol:

WOD I have a suggestion that you have probably considered but then thought it was silly

 

You have always been honest about your issues with the current state of the USA but what your view may be  unintentionally missing is maybe you just need a change of scenery for a while. Now I respect your open patriotism to Texas  but I am talking about a sabbatical for 6-12 months. But you need to go somewhere like California, somewhere where someone like Hurlshot lives who is positive about the USA

 

I think 12 months living in California will change or maybe lesson some of your negative views?

Perhaps if Britian didn't treat the Amerikan colonies worse than the EU treats Brtiain   the US wouldn't have felt the need to leave. *shrug*

Volo sorry to criticize  you on this but you have  a real lack of loyalty or respect towards Britain...and you Canadian.

 

Dont you think after everything the UK has done for Canada you could show a little gratitude?

UK has done **** for Kanadians. they aren't loyal to me or my fellows. They were slavers. They were the very thing they oppose the EU for. I am loyal to Kanada to a degree but I have no loyalty to a country  that  is so far away. The only reason why Kanada is a country is because Britian feared another War of Independence in the Amerikas.

Is that true about the UK? Cananda is part of the Commonwealth and it always adheres to its historical commitments to the UK like when the Queen visits so there is some connection?

 

And the whole slavery accusation  is just a distraction, the UK always gets blamed for certain historical things they did. Some people only see the negative 

 

I hear this almost  everyday, my ancestors came to Africa from the UK and I am accused of slavery, imperialism, colonialism, Apartheid, war-mongering, looting of resources and other things. Now in the history of the UK like every Colonial country yes thats part of the past but the UK has redeemed itself and nowadays is a force of good 

 

Why would you be going on about slavery....were your ancestors slaves?

Even worse. They were mostly French. :d

 

 

But, one does not need to have been a slave to know that slavery is wrong.... mmmkayyy?

 

 

And, trust me, if I had any influence I would abolish anything to do with the Nazi Queen in my country.

Vol, you might like to call us slavers, but to be fair, the English Navy were pretty much the first enforcers of the anti-slavery laws. We were ahead of the French that way. And French-canadians are always annoyed over that whole war and fort surrender thing....

 

But onto the not-so serious stuff..

Don't hate us because we're beautiful.  Hate us because we're larger and wealthier than you.  :lol:

 

I have to agree, every time i've travelled over to the states i've noticed how much larger you people are.

 

While drinking with some acquaintances back in the eighties I was nudged and told, "Your round!"

 

I stood myself up foursquare and tall and said to the porcine gentleman, "No you're round friend, however i'll go and get the drinks in."

 

Had rather a good laugh about it after he'd stopped chasing me, and had a sit down and a breather for half an hour.

Quite an experience to live in misery isn't it? That's what it is to be married with children.

I've seen things you people can't even imagine. Pearly Kings glittering on the Elephant and Castle, Morris Men dancing 'til the last light of midsummer. I watched Druid fires burning in the ruins of Stonehenge, and Yorkshiremen gurning for prizes. All these things will be lost in time, like alopecia on a skinhead. Time for tiffin.

 

Tea for the teapot!

That's pretty offensive mate. But not wrong.

Hadn't come up. It was drab. Once an American naval ship put in for a visit. To me the Americans looked like pudgy pink piglets. To them we must have looked grey and cadaverous.
