God bless the UK

Modified from Lee Greenwoods "God Bless the USA."  His patriotic words speak across seas as well.


God bless the UK

If tomorrow all the things were gone,
I'd worked for all my life.
And I had to start again,
with just my children and my wife.

I'd thank my lucky stars,
to be livin here today.
‘Cause the flag still stands for freedom,
and they can't take that away.

And I'm proud to be a Briton,
where at least I know I'm free.
And I wont forget the ones who died,
who gave that right to me.

And I gladly stand up,
next to you and defend her still today.
‘Cause there ain't no doubt I love this land,
God bless the UK.

From the lakes of Scotland,
to the hills of Cymru.
Throughout Northern Ireland,
Our shining isle in the sea.

From Glasgow down to Cardiff,
and Belfast  to London.
Well there's pride in every British heart,
and its time we stand and say.

And I'm proud to be a Briton,
where at least I know I'm free.
And I wont forget the ones who died,
who gave that right to me.

And I gladly stand up,
next to you and defend her still today.
‘Cause there ain't no doubt I love this land,
God bless the UK.

And I'm proud to be a Briton,
where at least I know I'm free.
And I wont forget the ones who died,
who gave that right to me.

And I gladly stand up,
next to you and defend her still today.
‘Cause there ain't no doubt I love this land,
God bless the UK.

Its all Laqarik....


http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=laqarik
Originally a term when something is deemed to be massively good usually brought about through a change, or removal of something. The term first appeared in the American South, and has since radiated out with the use of facebook and other online mediums, since this disbursement it has since changed to mean that something is good, or better than something else.

 
My paper was a little wordy, so I removed some unneeded paragraphs, now it is laqarik.

Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert are both really good, but Colbert is laqarik.

How to Tip


People of Mississippi and the United States in general, I am writing this letter on behalf of waiters and waitresses everywhere. I’m not sure if you realize this, but we work really hard to please you and make your dining experience something worth going out for. We strive to make your meal pleasant and wait on you hand and foot, and we do this for much less money than you realize… somewhere around $2 an hour. It is for this reason that in the United States it is customary to tip at least 15% of your total bill regardless.* Now in situations where the service is exceptional, tipping more is always appreciated and will continue to ensure quality service. Now, I know you are wondering “How do I know what 15% is, I'm not a math wiz,” Well the fact is, many modern cell phones have a tip calculator attached, and if still in doubt, tip a little more than the tax of the meal. Still, if you feel that you do not need to tip, there are a number of restaurants that actually do not necessitate tips… like Fast Food, or some Delis, so please if you are not prepared to tip, check out these non-tipping establishments. Now there is a group of people seeking to align the USA with countries like those in Europe, and like Australia where tipping is not needed necessarily because the wait staff make a wage, you are welcome to support these causes** as well if you do not want to tip, but until that actually happens… please tip.

Thank you.

*If in fact the service is below par and it is the actual waiter or waitress’ fault, and you can tell that it is not because they are bogged down with many tables, then it would be ok not to tip… or to tip less than the customary 15% due to the fact that they need to up there game.

Your Right to Choose!!!

 

Presidential election years are a time to reflect on the job the current president has done and to choose the person that is most fitting for his replacement.   This year we have two candidates from the same party going at each others throat…. Proving that at least that party does not have its act together enough to have two candidates that can not only work for the common goal of getting one or the other elected, but they resort to mud slinging like school yard brats.   Do you really want one of them as your President? Then you have the other candidate that is just a cleaned up shiny new version of what we have in office, perhaps with a higher understanding of the English language.  

 

I personally feel that the United States really does allow you to choose the person you feel is the better candidate and vote for them.   I have been told by several people that my vote would be wasted if I voted for the person that I choose, but if half of the United States wasted a vote for the candidate that they chose, and then perhaps that candidate would be President and could make some positive changes to the way that this country is going. 

 

Good Bless America!

I challenge all People of Voting Age that are my friends to Read, and Learn!!!!

A Direct Democracy is classically termed pure democracy, comprises a form of democracy and theory of civics wherein sovereignty is lodged in the assembly of all citizens who choose to participate.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Direct_democracy

Basically Unlike our current form of Democracy... The Republic where we elect people to have the final say.. WE THE PEOPLE will have a say and will be able to even veto Laws that we feel are unfair and we can steer the direction we want our country to go.

I know what you are saying... That will never work! WELL PEOPLE it has worked and will work for America. The Swiss have enjoyed a Direct Democracy for over a hundred years, and it has done them well!!!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Direct_democracy#Direct_democracy_in_Switzerland

Why not Us? Why not the United States? Why let the Moral Majority, or the corrupt Politicians have all the say? Why not step up and Take the initiative?
