The Fourth Of July, 2005

Via Kim du Toit

The USA was founded on the principles of INDIVIDUAL LIBERTY. Freedom in the purest form.

Today should be a day of celebration - go read why some are mourning instead.

But whatever, may I wish y'all a Happy July 4th on behalf of freedom loving people everywhere.

Well another July 4th in the USA. An Englishman with American kids celebrating the freedom of Americans from British tyrants. Well the best part is that we are still here !!!
The Yanks have July 4th, the Irish have St. Patricks day infact all countries celebrate their National Day. Come on England !!! Lets get the party started and celebrate St. Georges Day.
I always fly the St. George Cross on April 23rd at my home in California, its a sense of National Pride - if only it could be celebrated - there are thousands of English expats living overseas that would love to get together on this day and celebrate their homeland, but it has to be a recognised day. The best we can do is meet for English Football matches or supporting English Boxers in Vegas, although this is an excellent trip, it would be fun to celebrate in our own castles.

I heard the Declaration of Independence read out yesterday, and parts of it rang out so true in relation to Bliar's Britain (BRITMO) that I was practically moved to tears. Consider these:

He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.
For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:
For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:
For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences (Can you say European Arrest Warrant?!?)
For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:

Sound familiar?

As for St George's day, if nobody except soccer hooligans can be bothered to celebrate it back there why the hell should I?
In fact, our rural Virginia town holds it's 'Victorian Festival' around that time, and displays a lot more pride in their British heritage than the present occupants/inmates of GB
