Half French and Half English is pure? Wouldn't both of those countries spit at the notion of such pseudo-miscegenation?

Apparently my parents wedding was one of the most awkward in history. Now we're talking about my Grandpa who thinks that anyone from north of London isn't truly English.

What does he consider them, southern Scots?

Providence is a present mystery by which our hope is confirmed and our faith solidified, if we give not into despair or disbelief.

If the Scots leave the Union then good luck.  Their economy will collapse and they will find themselves another vassal state of Brussels.

I think most Scots have come to the realisation that Fat Eck and Wee Nippy are feeding them a line. They realise that if they become 'independent' they will be just as bankrupt as they were when they came begging on bended knee asking the English for the Union.

But, of course, the English engineered the drop in world oil prices to bankrupt Scotland, at least according to the Two Fish.

The same thing was done to the Soviet Union, by OPEC on the instructions of the US, not the English.

I picked up a native hitch hiking on highway 115 about 30 years ago.  He was just a young lad but even at his age he realized that the English used the same model as they used in Scotland to steal native land in Canada.  I was surprised at his grasp of history at his young age.  He was from Manitoba, where some natives helped some highlanders from the Highland Clearances as they were arriving in what was to become the Province of Manitoba.  Maybe those stories got past down to him.

According to a story I heard, as the soldiers of a famous Highland regiment were marching to relieve the Siege of Lucknow, their wives and children were being 'cleared' off the land and driven to the ships waiting to transport them to the New World.

Which has had FAR more historical and cultural impact than the Krauts, or the Frogs, or the Wops or the Wogs and even the Degos.  No wonder my Russian wife is proud to hold a British passport.

Do business anywhere in the world now and you do it in English.  The contract is in English and the airport signs, internet, hotel room instructions are all in English too.

We are bloody marvellous. 

Being an Anglophile myself, I also see lots of good that resulted from the British Empire.  However, I am also a Francophile, particularly for historical France.  And be careful:  It's prophesied that France will be at the center of the restoration of the Church and monarchies in general, which in turn will favor a restored, orthodox papacy that is predicted will accompany that restoration.

The prophecies are a distraction.  We are living in the time of the antichrist.

I heard that similar stories like that happened during the Napoleonic Wars and the War of 1812.
