[/quote] We are a republic and are allowed to own guns to be able to fight against a government that is turning into a tyrannical government. We are also just awesome![quote]
Firstly, why is being a republic so great compared to having say, free health care? Second, how can you advocate gun ownership at this time? Just after some school children were killed by a psycho with an assault rifle? Thirdly, Obama is not a tyrant. He's doing what he thinks is right. And who wouldn't like to see laws that prevent random maniacs owning assault weapons?

Actually some parts of the UK tend to be quite nice and sunny, especially the most southern parts, don't forget that parts of England are quite close to France and even if we don't have the exact same climate there's still a lot of nice and warm weather to be had.

Further, the weather in the UK may be 'dreary' sometimes, but at least there aren't large swathes of the UK that are prone to hurricanes and the like. We may have the occasional drought or flood in some areas but it's by no means a large-scale natural disaster.

Also, the UK is a 'tourist attraction'? Mate, you ever been to the UK? We might have cultural heritage sites and the like but believe me when I say that 99% of the UK is places that tourists would never want to go.

If you'd like to approach the argument from that viewpoint then I submit that the USA is more touristy. It's got the hot weather that tourists like, it's got loads of attractions and restaurants and hotels that tourists like and it's an English-speaking country that a lot of Europeans like because pretty much all of Europe speaks English (at least as a second language).

I'm guessing someone doesn't know that that song was made by the English to mock the Americans? =p

Ya, if tourists go to England, they go to London. USA has far more bigger cities, and landscapes that actually attract many tourists.

And about the hurricane thing Avorne mentioned.. I still don't understand why houses in America are built so badly. They're basically papercard houses, plant a parket on the ground, put some walls on it and a roof on top, and voila. And this despite the hurricanes. Or because of?
Whatever, I really prefer old stone buildings by far. Besides, dark is good

Yeah, it's actually kind of sad, especially when you get Americans who've been to England and seem really enthusiastic about it and you ask them stuff about anywhere outside of London and they know absolutely nothing.

I'd imagine that some American housing (I don't want to generalize and say 'all' because there are quite a few nice examples of non-flimsy housing) is built the way it is thanks to things like cost + easy of access of materials and their population boom hitting a lot harder than the UK's - thus creating a demand for affordable housing built quickly.

I lived in suburban Manchester, England til I was 15. It's one of the most soul-crushingly gloomy places on earth, but I have a weird affection for it. I live in the U.S. which is more cheery, but my heart belongs in Blighty.

Just saying about the gun thingy everyones you know talking about is kinda obvious what obama's doing he just getting his foot in the door of gun control I'm guessing eventually guns will be banned in general. Also fun fact armed robberies in Australia increased after guns were banned. Homicides that's also kinda stupid if someone wants to ill themselves they could its not that hard.
