    Default Times when America is better than Britain

    "Always."[/sarcasm]

    On a more serious note, I do think that being legally able to use deadly force against an intruder in Texas is a great idea. A good deterrent to burglary. Would you rob someone if you could get shot?

    Apparently not in the constitution: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Castle_doctrine

    Some states require that you retreat from your property instead.

    I too think it's a great idea. I mean, if you can't defend your life, family and property what is the point?

    It's more that you can defend life, family, property etc. without going to jail. That's what appeals to me. He shouldn't be breaking into my house and threatening me in the first bloody place, and if he wants to he can damn well pay the consequences (yes I do keep saying he, but a woman would not be treated any differently).

    They're about as shitty as the other if you take into account their entire timeline, they've just traded places.

    I am going to use this thread to highlight something: Neville Chamberlain sucks and was in the top 10 worst European wartime prime ministers. Edouard Daladier is also terrible.

    It's funny, though - if you guys were an island, you'd be facing tensions with exactly the same nationalities as we have historically been.

    Well well as an English guy (fuck the northern monkeys, sheepshaggers and paddys) i will say that when it comes down to it i see the English as the Spartans and Americans as the Persians, much less of us but more elite. Dont get me wrong though i like Americans its just the hillbillys i cant stand, may the first American to have adopted that hillbilly accent burn in the deepest pit of hell

    Where the hell were you in history class?
    Am I the only one that remembers that little spat between our two countries? You know. The one where you were the majority, AND the elite. And we...still...won...?

    I think the US Canada Ireland and Australia (and whoever wants to tag along too) should have a bloody battle against Bitland to show them who is the boss.
