Ok, so we have a few islands there. But it's not our sphere of influence is it?
You'd start getting a bit jumpy if we started playing about that close to your shore.
Look what happened with Cuba. And that was over just a few pesky missile sites.
Look. It's your back yard so take care of it.
I'm always shocked at how people don't take care of their gardens in America.
At least we got back yards, look at the sizes of the properties in England! Minus of course where the royalty lives...theirs is huge.
This is what an English country garden looks like. We plant and tend to the lawn.
In America, they just mow.
That's why they have "yards" and we have "gardens".
Evidently that knowledge was lost on the boat over as well....
That is pretty but, sorry mate can't hold a candle to mine. I live in the "garden" and even had a pet bee.
[movie]And there has never been any harm in poking a bit of fun at the yanks
You lost me - was that "English humour" about the Americans being slaughtered in that absurd first war with the imbecile Germans and French?
The Germans and French and English owe use 20,000$ + interest for every man wounded or killed - that would solve the national debt problem.
And you Brits still owe us for those liberty ships built by Mr. Kaiser in California for the next bout of idiocy, without which you would have had to eat your shoes and flavour it with lavender from those gardens where you potter about in the short summer.
We have such debt because we have taken on this altruistic world cop stance, which bankrupts us.
We silly yanks have saved England from being Germanys Haiti all too many times. They certainly would not have wanted your foggy island for vacationing, so I suppose you would be a slave state now, pouring iron and making gas for their final solution to the Muslim problem.
Those debts have long been repaid.
And now we are into credit as an active ally in both wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Your debt was not the consequence of our fight for freedom (which you joined late). It is the consequence of your rich not paying enough taxes and the myth that all Americans believe that some day, too, they could be rich.
I'm here to give you a wake up call. You will never be rich.
Except the guy on here that owns his own baseball team.

Well, I knew this country was doomed in about 2002, when some dopey 20 year old waitress told me she "bought" 2 houses to make her able to retire in 5 years.
Even a crippled cat could have gotten a house loan then. Then came the shiny faced, late night TV salesmen sipping on a cocoanut, selling the method to make a million in realesate even if you were in debt, bankrupt and an alchoholic. How do you talk and smile at the same time?
Thanks for the token help in the mideast, but we should have all stayed home and Iran would have nuked Saddam by now, the Jews would have eliminated Iran totally, and they could all start to live in peace with some land freed up for more sheep.
Richest in America will soon be the farmer with a water source, a few thousand acres, 4 or 5 good kids that stayed near home, with health and lots of mechanical skills. Richer yet if he is in Kansas and has his own small natural gas well.
I have always said the way to save America is to sell most of Nevada to the Jews. Bring the temple here, no matter what the muslims have to say. Bring in water from Canada. Now they are safe, we have gained some very productive and bright assets, and the national debt is wiped out. We already have your damn bridge in Arizona.
