    Congress and the Supreme Court are constantly "revising/interpreting" the Constitution to make it say what they want it to, so this would not be anything other than "business as usual".

    Congress
    i.e. the American people.

    Make sure they speak fluent Spanish...
    Strangely enough - long term - I think Latino immigrants are now the only way the country can get out of the hole it is in. We've got to lower costs, and immigration from south of the border is probably the only way we will do it.

    Technology is the other way. Specifically green. But that will require taxing energy. And while I don't seem to mind paying taxes, the rest of you do. It must be a Master Plumber thing with their "short arms" and "deep pockets". An Irish plumber at tax time must feel particularly unhappy.

    Sigh.

    Oh and the worst is when you have to press '1' to get English, otherwise they continue in Spanish.
    People gripe about their electricity bill, but use less and you will pay less. Try that with your cable, phone, internet,... and trash.

    Queens english or american accentized, thats a totally incomprehensible language.

    I believe I could only understand a moan from one of those girls.

    And one thing I do not undertand about England: Why are the girls all so often frumpy, a bit oily, and fade to age 40 right after age 18?

    Is it that foggy dreadful night air?

    They have better dimensions that those you find here ballvalve. And that is an established fact.

    Plus the hairstyles and makeup still in vogue in the United States disappeared in England in the 80s.

    Ladies here really like their big hair, don't they?

    I understand you Brits are getting used to giving away parts of your empire...
    But I assure you the Irish really don't want Blackburn, West Lothian, Scotland...

    They would much rather have County Antrim, County Armagh, County Down, County Fermanagh, County Londonderry, and County Tyrone...

    I've been to most of those and I doubt you have.

    Ireland is very nice. As are the Irish that stayed at home.

    Unfortunately you are correct Ian. My Ireland travels have been in the Leinster, and Munster Provinces so far.
    My main desire when I went was to visit County Cork where my Great Great Grandfather hailed from...
    It is a lovely country and I plan on returning to visit again...

    Next visit I plan on visiting the north hopefully by then they will have succeeded in finishing the task of kicking you Brits to the curb...

    County Kerry is my favorite, although full of Catholics.

    Unlike the north where there is a more healthy mix.

    It rains a lot in Ireland though.
