In recent years it has been my custom on this day to ask Americans, on balance, whether they consider it an advantage or otherwise to be independent of this country.
With the exception that the Canadians were the only ones who beat the early US and they really are politely smug about the whole thing, I usually only get that question from SCots, Irish, and Indians. I think you guys just ask that question to validate your own similar opinions.
Seems that Izzy has gotten up on the wrong side of the web this
morning.Im sure , had he wished, he could have said "We dont tune in to American Holidays" with a bit more tact than he did. BUT, Ive gotten used to his (and set's) mutual irascibility. I enjoy when they go at each other and accuse the other of being easily aroused to combat.
However, I love to hear what the rest of the wrld thinks about international issues, or thir own celebrations. I think I stick with some of the more annoying Brits and Australians than even the Brits and Australians do.
