What about the Jews?And that's the point, obviously. That "one shot heard around the world" could never have been fired against the grandest and most powerful army and navy in the world in 1776.
One thing about the British Lords and royalty. . . . they never really forget. . . . and never really give up.
It's not about the safety of our kids, or our rights to self-governance. It's about the safety of their kids and their right to rule the rest of mankind. And their convenience in doing so. . . .
Oh, and it's not just Brits with elite ruling classes. . . it's the Chinese, the Japanese, the Russians, and every other country with no effective representative governance on the ground. . . . and even in the US it has been more a dream than a reality from the outset. . .
and it will never be a reality any more than an informed and non-compliant populace can manage to impose on the arrogance of "experts" who spend their entire lives trying to manage opinion. . . .by jumping all over our natural sympathies for the innocent kids, or whatever. . . .
hooting and hollering like cowboys driving a herd of cattle. . . . into the pens.
