Using rocks and minerals to heal the earth and us.

Message from John Cleese -

To the citizens of the United States of America:

In light of your failure in recent years to nominate competent
candidates for President of the USA and thus to govern yourselves, we
hereby give notice of the revocation of your independence, effective

Her Sovereign Majesty Queen Elizabeth II will resume monarchical
duties over all states, commonwealths, and territories (except Kansas,
which she does not fancy).

Your new Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, will appoint a Governor for
America without the need for further elections. Congress and the
Senate will be disbanded. A questionnaire may be circulated next year
to determine whether any of you noticed.

To aid in the transition to a British Crown Dependency, the following
rules are introduced with immediate effect:

1 You should look up 'revocation' in the Oxford English Dictionary.
Then look up aluminium, and nuclear, and check the
pronunciation guide. You will be amazed at just how wrongly you have
been pronouncing them.

2 The letter 'U' will be reinstated in words such as 'colour',
'favour' and 'neighbour.' Likewise, you will learn to spell 'doughnut'
without skipping half the letters, and the suffix '-ize' will be
replaced by the suffix '-ise'.

Generally, you will be expected to raise your vocabulary to acceptable
levels. (look up 'vocabulary').

3 Using the same twenty-seven words interspersed with filler noises
such as 'like' and 'you know' is an unacceptable and
inefficient form of communication. There is no such thing as US
English. We will let Microsoft know on your behalf. The Microsoft
spell- checker will be adjusted to take account of the reinstated
letter 'u' and the elimination of -ize.

4 July 4th will no longer be celebrated as a holiday.

5 You will learn to resolve personal issues without using guns,
lawyers, or therapists. The fact that you need so many lawyers and
therapists shows that you're not adult enough to be independent.

6 Guns should only be handled by adults. If you're not adult enough to
sort things out without suing someone or speaking to a
therapist then you're not grown up enough to handle a gun.

7 Therefore, you will no longer be allowed to own or carry anything
more dangerous than a vegetable peeler. A permit will be
required if you wish to carry a vegetable peeler in public.

8 All intersections will be replaced with roundabouts, and you will
start driving on the left with immediate effect. At the same
time, you will go metric with immediate effect and without the
benefit of conversion tables. Both roundabouts and metrication will
help you
understand the British sense of humour.

9 The Former USA will adopt UK prices on petrol (which you have been
calling gasoline)-roughly $6/US gallon. Get used to it

10 You will learn to make real chips. Those things you call French
fries are not real chips, and those things you insist on calling
potato chips are properly called crisps. Real chips are thick cut,
fried in animal fat, and dressed not with catsup but with vinegar.

11 The cold tasteless stuff you insist on calling beer is not actually
beer at all. Henceforth, only proper British Bitter will be
referred to as beer, and European brews of known and accepted
provenance will be referred to as Lager. South African beer is also
acceptable as they are pound for pound the greatest sporting Nation on
earth and it can only be due to the beer. They are also part of
British Commonwealth - see what it did for them. American brands will
be referred to as Near-Frozen Gnat's Urine, so that all can be sold
without risk of further confusion.

12 Hollywood will be required occasionally to cast English actors as
good guys. Hollywood will also be required to cast English actors to
play English characters. Watching Andie Macdowell attempt English
dialogue in Four Weddings and a Funeral was an experience akin to
having one's ears removed with a cheese grater.

13 You will cease playing American football. There is only one kind of
proper football; you call it soccer. Those of you brave enough
will, in time, be allowed to play rugby (which has some similarities
to American football, but does not involve stopping for a rest every
twenty seconds or wearing full Kevlar body armour like a bunch of
nancies). In the meantime don't try rugby - the South Africans and
Kiwis will thrash you, like they regularly thrash us.

14 Further, you will stop playing baseball. It is not reasonable to
host an event called the World Series for a game which is not played
outside of America. Since only 2.1% of you are aware that there is a
world beyond your borders, your error is understandable. You will
learn cricket, and we will let you face the South Africans first to
take the sting out of their deliveries.

15 You must tell us who killed JFK. It's been driving us mad.

16 An internal revenue agent (i. e. tax collector) from Her Majesty's
Government will be with you shortly to ensure the
acquisition of all monies due (backdated to 1776).

17 Daily Tea Time begins promptly at 4 pm with proper cups, with
saucers, and never mugs, with high quality biscuits (cookies) and
cakes; plus strawberries (with cream) when in season.

Turns out this is not from Cleese...

It sounds like it was from John Cleese!

How much different would America be if it had never gotten it's independence?  Well, for one thing, it would be a lot smaller!  We bought the Louisiana Purchase from the French, they were competitiors, no way did they go around selling colonies to one another.

My guess is that America would be a lot of smaller countries, each with their own version of culture and language, a lot like Europe.  In fact, we'd be New Europe:  no guns, lots of inflation, probably some looser morals going on, and lots of little kings still trying to hold ont positon and power!

That's hilarious, and it does sound like John Glesse. I wish Monty Python were still making films and the above subject would make a great one.

This is the NWO's mindset.

Except they forgot the carbon taxes.

A bunch of European Plutocrats already run the Federal-Reserve hence America isn't as INDEPENDENT as we like to think.  What other country has a foreign power controlling their currency production other than America and Canada ??
