Calm down. Well done for you being proud of being a yank, i am very happy for you. I would just like to point out the murder rate in your country with
guns compared to the rest of the world, and then rest my case.
And i will discuss anything i please.
Your position is one which is very political. You do not discuss the murder rate with the rest of the world...period. In most countries they do not
have easy access to guns. But this does not deter murder at all. Hence your position is political ..not actual. It makes for good emotional
And I am very calm.
I know that the murder rate in the UK is substantial for the size of its population and getting worse as well. It does not do for you to point this
out to us in this manner when there are those who know how the body politic works and educates the populace. Some of us here have more than a
television eduation Peruvianmonk.
Most people in this country do not die from firearms related causes...they die in much larger numbers from car accidents , infections, heart
Removing guns does nothing for crime..period
I also know that the French are having problems with crime committed by a large immigrant population. Robberies, theft..assaults even murders etc.
There is a significant problem with Immigrants causing problems at the Calais area while waiting to board HGVs to catch a ride on the train to the UK
for government handouts. Very similar to the problems from illegal immigrants coming in from south of the border here. THese people are going to cause
further problems when they get to your country....including murder.
My point here is that a lot of what you post is dependent on the ignorance of most Americans. You would be correct in this assumption..but not all of
We have no wish or desire to follow the British or Continental template in anything. We are Yanks and do not ask....or declare..."by your leave
Governor." Yes Governor, Yes Governor."
We are not interested in such Feudal thinking or value systems. We are not interested in becoming subjects or having a subject education.
Also ..there are those of us here who know the history of the British Empire and how they treated their subjects. Also the history of the Crown and
its Merchant Crown Colonies.
In knowing this we do not automatically give the British credit..nor the Crown...for giving up slavery before us here in the states. For we know that
the Brits and the Crown found a much better way to create slaves across the board. ....It is called Opium....along with all the slavery history and
subjection/misery it caused around the world.
You see Peruvian Monk...the British have no claim to the moral high ground. What the British do is have a better way of covering it up in the history
books. For you see the British have such a nice delicate way of enslaving the world and making subjects....that Americans are generally so stupid we
think it is just wonderful to be a subject. No thanks. Not all of us are that stupid.
The British and their History have no moral high ground on us here in the States. Some of us, Peruvian Monk, do know some world history and the dirt
swept under the rug of the Empire and the Crown.
You are wasting your time with such techniques..unless you can only get an audience of recent graduates from public schools where most of the history
of this world will be missing form their knowledge/educations.
And once again..I am calm,
