    Keep in mind that Blair has resigned and will leave office by the end of
    this month.

    Looks like everything is going according to schedule.....:evil:

    Why not let England join the EU, and Scotland can become the "51st State"?

    Hell, if we join America, we'd finally get sensible gun laws.

    Its obvious that the folks in those countries do not want to be sovereign anymore, I wonder how this will fair for us, no NAU and we should reject their political refugees! Don't like it tell'em to have a revolution and set things straight. This is the first time I have seen this article.


    ^ we'll take the SCOTSMAN and the IRISH but we don't want the ENGLISH!!! We kicked them out once and they can stay out!! :)

    I think it's important to remember that Merkel was not just a 'reluctant' commie, but achieved being head of a Communist Party Youth Wing, has been a communist since she stopped sucking teet, and will be a devoted Communist until the day she dies.

    The ****ing Soviets, they lost the war but their 5th columns never got the memo to stop:(


    G36 if Scotland would ever revolt, and if it's not a communist revolution, you can bet that there will be a lot of help coming from Canada. Maybe not from the gov't, but there'd be help coming nonetheless.

    Figure they fought all those big wars to remain free and now they will go without a fight. Hey, if that is what they wanted why did we keep sending all those soldiers over there to die in those wars?

    As if the Scottish nationalists didn't have enough on their plate.

    At least I could go live in Edinburgh and not be an "expat".

    Your ever-so-slightly-left-of-centre-with-a-teeny-little-social-conscience Democratic party isn't nearly left-wing enough for them.

    Yeah but they arent all like that. I am a Scottish-American, and a member of the "Libertarian-right" I am supportive of Scottish independence also. I have several right of center friends in Scotland who are also supportive of it. It is not a universally left wing thing.

    Since the SNP won the last election here in Scotland, They should get off their collective arses and declare independence from the Union.
    I think that would be most appropriate as we are on the 300th anniversary of the largest con-job in history (the 1707 Act of Union).

    Turned on NPR while stuck in traffic and there was some program on that was interviewing people from Hungary, Check Rep and one other newer EU Members and I was mortified when one of them stated that it was necessary for them to give up their sovereignty to the EU for "The Greater Good".....:fire::fire:

    Frankly I'm stilled stunned and horrified by this.

    LOL, you could always come here like my Scots-Irish ancestors did....:)

    I thought Scotland was at least "autonomous" or something by now. Hmmm.
    Interesting thought on a new "state" joining the United States. Would give
    some of us more passport free options for travel, too. So how's the hunting
    there?

    You guys got people worse than the Dems? Make a rickety boat out of inner tubes, push it out into the ocean, and start rowing.

    Now that is scary. :eek:

    Some people, especially in the West, haven't got the message yet that communism has failed and has to be propped up with tyranny. Truly scary.

    I'm worried that if we annex Scotland there will be too much illegal immigration from south of the border.

    The NPR program was Travel with Rick Steves. He was talking to travel guides from "new Europe."

    One of the guides made the point that the compromises and negotiations being made to form the E.U. are a lot like what the various states went through in forming the United States of America. It's not a bad point.

    Oh, and that worked out great. Until around 1860.

    I bet Justin Sullivan would have a great big laugh if Scotland became the 51st state. :D

    Me, I'm all for it. I love ironic humor.

    Don't be so sure you'd get sane gun laws, though. Just look at our other island state to see how badly things can go, even in the good ol' USA.
