Bully for you Sir!

Silly constumes and large hats mark this asinine parade of thievery. So come down from your self righteous pub stool and realize that alcohol is a terrible thing and that you have never exited the blood drenched halls of serfdom. Have another pint, while scions of the Red Shield laugh as you and your fellow serfs who's adoration of the very puppets that they have installed provide you and yours with further intoxication in addition to John Barleycorn. You seek to illeviate yourself of the pain of slavery in strong drink.
You are no better than anyone else around the World who cling to oppressive constucts of cultural, social, political and religious control. They are but simple mechanisms to utilize fear. Fear is how they control you. This is why we are having this discussion, your fear of death. Fear = Control.
I do not extend this piece as a condemnation, for I am an Anglophile. I love the British people as I love all of my common sisters and brothers around the globe. I am riled by the self righteous ignorance that permeates this planet. I pray my statement was not received as harsh but rather a loving chide to invite all to awaken and embrace the ofactory deluge of bovine excrement.edit on 26-1-2013 by HUMBLEONE because: A whiff of bovine excrement

Well, no matter how you Brits feel about America's business. We have your back if it comes down to it. We will supply you weapons and even give our lives to protect you. Just like we did in WWII. Lets just keep that in the back of our minds when arguing America's Constitution. It protects you too.
That would be more convincing if you hadn't waited until Germany declared war on you 11 Dec 1941.

You guys every tried playing that game without a full set of kevlar body armour on?
in rugby we don't have to wear it we don't need to..
The world series is a funny one too... isn't that only played in america ?..
A British Rugby League player showed it takes a lot of balls to play the rough game - or at least a lot of ball.
Player Paul Wood Saturday lost a testicle after a suffering a collision during the league's final at Manchester's Old Trafford Stadium Saturday, but managed to play the rest of the match before seeking treatment, CNN reports.
Wood, who plays for the Warrington Wolves, was injured just one minute into the second half, but played the rest of the game anyway before he was taken off to the hospital, where the 30-year-old father of two's injured testicle was removed in surgery. And even though he finished out the match, his team still lost by 26-13 to the 2011 champions, Leeds.
Talking about busting your balls.
And later on, after losing a testicle and the big game, Wood was still able to tweet his woes with a sense of humor:
Now just sat in hospital with a ruptured testicle! Please don't laugh it's very very very painful! & embarrassing #wolves2012
— Paul Wood (@PaulWood_Wolves) October 6, 2012
And to a friend who hadn't heard what happened:
@leonpryce6 ruptured my right testicle mate, got a knee 1 minute into the second half, had to have it removed tonight, no mad Monday gutted
— Paul Wood (@PaulWood_Wolves) October 7, 2012
And when it was all over:
Just coming out the hospital to go home... Seriously feel like I've left something???
— Paul Wood (@PaulWood_Wolves) October 7, 2012
Which goes to show you, even with one ball, Paul Wood is one tough SOB.
