Do they even like Tea over there?
probably not - worried it might make you socialist and demand basic state healthcare along with democracy

Many do. I prefer tea and at home or visiting family drink tea. Out at restaurants generally I get coffee as most restaurant tea here is flavourless.

A few years ago I was in hospital for a few days and the hospital served "decaffinated tea". Tasted like they put dried grass clippings in a little paper bag. Horrible stuff.

Sorry to piss on the tea party, but the septics view their "declaration of independance" with a reverance which is almost religious. Which I find strange, since there's not a single signatory who wasn't an oath breaker. They'd all served in Colonial Offices or militias and had all sworn allegiance to the crown. Their signatures were not worth much then really.

The whole thing wasn't about taxation, it was about property. With the French taken care of on the continent, the Spanish a vague and distant threat, the monied Americans turned their interests to the now open lands of the Missouri valley, which the crown had promised to it's Indian allies in the war against France. The first draft of the declaration had "The pursuit of property" in it, this was too close to the truth so "happiness" was inserted instead.

America started with opportunist land grabbers, treaty breakers and oath breakers. There has been little change since.

Thank you, thank you - I am glad we overthrew the British imperialist yolk! :)

Obligatory....Fuck yeah!



All kidding aside, I wish I was back home today, the 7th is my birthday too, but there was just no way to get time off from work - it's been a mad few weeks.

They do. Long Island Iced Tea - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia It's vile, I prefer the non-alcoholic version personally.
Sounds vile too. The only iced tea I like is what the Bosnians call cranberry iced tea......which I think is really just sweetened cranberry juice.

Ice Tea - Cranberry – Podravka - English

Oh, and the PX do a peach ice tea which is fairly ok.

I had iced tea the other day in KAFs TGI Fridays because I noticed they kept filling peoples glasses up for free, but it was nasty as hell and I could understand why they were filling peoples glasses up for free....just trying to get rid of the shite.

Brits ought to celebrate 4th July if for no other reason than no longer being responsible for what we do.

And to all Brits out there, Happy Getting-shot-of-the-freeloading-shysters Day.
