Well, I've heard the same sort of stereotypical comments about the
Brits so many times I am fed up with them too. Besides which of those
comments can you say does not have an air of truth about them for
someone coming from England, or may other places in the World for that
You've turned a simple friendly poke at the US system into an all out
attack on every US citizen. I read an article the other day about the
British "hacker" who "broke into" the military systems over there
looking for UFO data. The comments were that he should be given 70
years inside, executed, and a whole lot of stuff about how this guy
was such a terrible criminal. No one talked about how the US military
had connected a system with secret classified data onto the Net with
no admin password. But apparently all the blame was on him. If you
leave your car with the door open and the keys in the ignition
wouldn't you expect to have it pinched.
And whats this stuff about the land of the free, you guys have more
legislation on yourselves and on other countries people than many
other countries. I sat and watched all the discussion about shooting
guns at New Year and the chances of people getting killed. They get
killed anyway because it is so easy to get guns over there. Everybody
gets the chance to be a crim. Our police don't carry guns routinely
and we don't have a gun problem. Sure some idiots get hold of them,
and some innocent people get hurt or killed, but it's a major event in
this country when that happens, not just the way of life it is for you
So please don't come back at me all innocent like and hurt.
