You dont even know your own history this is what happens when throwing stones in your glass houses. Rome didnt conquer all of Scotland but it had a good portion. England invaded in 1295 took the King's Corronation Stone didnt give it back till 1996. That sparked 400 years of war for Independence from England. You guys also tried to conquer i mean "colonize" Nova Scotia, and also tried to take over the Panama Canal. Where would you be if you succeeded and Spain and England didnt stop you? Every nation has its story you are not immune

What about the hood in LA or chicago?; we're a rich relative to who? Other americans? Or the rest of the world. Are you comparing the american public's wealth to corporate wealth? and powerful country; and our quality of life is high.because of corporate and the bankers Capitalism has raised more people out of poverty than anything else, ever.lol...nahh thats just bs dude No other system is as successful as ours,not true even though we're not perfect.

Everything you have written has been written a hundred times already on this site... great work.
Well maybe if people would start listening and acting on it things will change.
It's hard to imagine that every single new member has gone over the history of all such threads and knows the facts and messages I made clear.

No you are wrong, i know more about the history of my own country than you do. The Romans invaded Scotland and had a presence for about 300 years on the southern edge of the country. The had a battle with the Caledonians in Mons Gruipus but they left after the defeated us, either forcefully or because their wasnt enough gain in keeping the military cost. England DID NOT invade scotland in the first instance, Scotland asked King Edward of England to arbitrate to prevent civil war as no King for Scotland could be chosen. It was then when Scotland elected its new king that Edward didnt want to give up Scotland and the War of Independance began and raged for centuries.

There I said it.
The very moment we saw Darth Vader step off his Star Destroyer and enter the Rebel Blockade runner we were enraptured! Evil is cool.
When our alien overlords arrive and America is the captiol of the New Orion Empire you will wish you had been nicer to us.
