    Well I can thank the German states for providing Hessian mercenaries. Its the fact that we were fighting the Dutch, Spanish and French by the end of the war. Blame them!

If anyone should be accused of Genocide and not mixing with the people, its the Norman conquerors. As for all the celtic neighbours of England, Scotland was brought into the Union on there own accord, albeit with little other option (after failing disastrously to set up a colony in panama). Scotland had continually been a thorn in England's side by allying with the French against us and thereby invited invasion. As for Wales and Ireland, Wales refused to submit to Edward I as overlord, despite previous Welsh princes having done so. Ireland was unfortunately trampled on by everyone, nobody remembers the Scottish invasion in 1315 that basically led to an even more bloody occupation than England. As for colonial settlement, I admit in most of the White settler colonies there was little intergration. However in the easter colonies, during the rule of the East India Company it was very common for company men to take Indian wives, sometimes several. In North borneo the King was an Englishman. Sarawak was even ruled by a succession of 'White Rajas' who were Eglishman but took on the titles and customs of the peoples they ruled.

    Unfortunately England has been chastised by many for simply being a lot more successful than her neighbours. Perhaps if they had become more English, they would have done better. England even successfully managed to emulgamate French and Scottish kings into a truly English culture, no wonder James I never wanted to go back and it took Charles I nearly a decade to be crowned in Scotland.

    1895 called, it wants its white man's burden propaganda back.

    Blame Parliament. They're the ones that kept trying to impose taxes on the colonies, when they had no jurisdiction over the colonies. It would be like living and working in Canada and getting a tax bill from Australia... then when you protest, the crown says "Shut up, you, and pay your taxes!"

    Legislative authority over the colonies was vested in those colonies' representative bodies... such as Virginia's House of Burgesses.

    They're not expressly supposed to be, but they need to have the option to be if the law requires it.

    I work at a water park...I can't avoid it.
    In fact, I see the worst of it.
    When they think that wearing the clothing amount equivalent to a bikini is okay at Wal-Mart, just think of what they think is 'acceptable' at a water park!

    You have no idea.
    I yell at so many women about how you can't wear a fucking white beaner with nothing underneath and go down a water slide.
    Baha, I'm just a little upset with it right now. Bad day at work.
