Thanks Dave!

You may not appreciate this, but I already managed to hunt down a couple of Brits with my pitchfork this morning.

Anybody else get some Brits with their pitchforks?

You might not appreciate this either....but surely ONLY Americans in the ORIGINAL thirteen states have the right to celebrate Independance Day...after all...England NEVER Rulled much of North America...only ever Thirteen States.

I dont believe Texas was one of them :mellow:

LOL, you have a good point Dave, but, if it weren't for what those 13 states did, TX may still be a part of Mexico, or even better, still the Republic of Texas!

I think Texas would be a Republic, because Mexico was in swift decline around the time of the United States being Founded.

Incidently...do any of the Southern States commemorate the Confederacy in anyway...or is that deemed Illegal? I mean...they pretty much declaired independance from the "United" States to form a "Confederacy" of States (still ironically an Union of interdependant States, rather then an independant country) I would say, surely that is more important then Independance from England....for lets face it...England only held a small portion in the East.

Do you ever celebrate Independance from the other European Countries that Collonized you? The Midwest was owned and full of French Plantations (you have a state called Louisiana...but the French called everything from about Alabama-ish, to Washington State, in a diagonal strip across the continent, by the same name prior to selling it. Spain owned the West Coast, and much of the South...Whole Nations in meso-America are plantations of Spain...I know you say "Mexico"...but Mexico is a short lived product of a Spanish Conquest that obliterated reasonably civilized city states from the Deserts of Nevada...all the way to the Amazonian Rain Forrest.

Is England the only one that gets special treatment.

If so...Kindly ask the State Government of Virginia, to GIVE ME BACK MY MACE! :laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh:

Honestly can say that I don't know the answer to any of your questions. As far as I know, there aren't any celebrations of independence except from the Brits and TX has an Independence Day but it's not really a big deal here. I'd imagine areas may have celebrations, but nothing on the same scale as Independence Day. Maybe some hate groups have Confederate celebrations, lol

Wait! I thought Independance Day was when we celebrated our repel of the alien invasion thanks to President Bill Pullman flying a fighter jet and some drunk fighter pilot flying into the heart of the alien craft with an armed nuke on his jet. There was also some nerd who planted a computer virus on the mother ship to help lower their shields.

What are you guys talking about?
