A Taxxing Subject


We are told that the Americand founders were devout, puritanical christians, and that the American War of Independence we are told about fighting taxxes without representation.

However jesus said "render unto Ceaser what is Ceaser's..."

This means pay your taxxes... and I might point out that the Roman empire was far more oppressive than King George.

I am not suggesting that the taxxation in America was done fairly, nor am i suggesting the War of Independence was wrong, but I an pointing to how even the most "devout" who claim to live to the word of the bible pick and chose the parts that are convenient to them.

We should never have let the colonies go - if we hadn't maybe we wouldn't have that awful mish mash they call 'American English' - no such thing - there is only english and yanks don't know how to use it or spell in it.

On the other hand, without the USA becoming independent we wouldn't have had Bill Gates or Microsoft!


AGGHHHHH!

Yah, but if we hadn't let them go, what would I have to talk about here.

If you hadn't let us go we would be in prison for planting our mum or be called perverts for going around sucking on a fag

True Shelly. At least the world has a whipping boy to blame for all the troubles. If the colonies hadn't become independent someone else would be the main target - probably UK.

Still, at least the yanks feel so guilty about their late entry into the last world war that they try n make it up by being the first into every new war!



(Yanks - this is tongue in cheek!)
