wow, quite a range of reactions. Some Informative, Some Persuasion, and Some even go to personal assumptions about me.
ok, I've been asked to reveal a little about myself and I will. For starters thats my e-mail up there for those questions and comments.
And no, I'm not an Englishman from England, just by blood. I'm just a guy that when I was 11 and the teacher said that the British were evil cause they shot those poor people at the Boston Massacre I raised my hand and said "oh really" and I got a book from the school library and found my teacher stumbling in her words at the sight of truth.
My article was to combat the standard mentality of "we are so good, they are so bad. " And since your ancestors fought for Georgie Washington I see where your reactions are coming from, but mine were with the King, in the beginning we all were, but mine remained. We didn't secede cause of petty taxes that were imposed on us [which were recalled anyway] We came from the Kings sovereign land and we fought for it when threatened. Too bad 4 other countries came to the rescue of the colonists. Would have been quite a sight to see everyone speak the King's English other then the many of branches of English made today like Ebonics. Oh well history is history, I'm just trying to bring a little light to the other side of the story.
