On which the Founding Fathers tell the tyrant King George III what he can do with his onerous taxes and hated Redcoats.
Very refreshing to read of the Founding Fathers’ use of a perfectly good word instead of some silly replacement like fug. My admiration for them has increased a hundredfold.
Signing the Declaration wasn’t exactly a very safe thing to do. Though historians debate upon the accuracy of the facts behind the fates of all the signers, http://www.snopes.com/history/american/pricepaid.asp some of them were killed or bankrupted as a consequence of their decision to sign.
Signing the Declaration carried about the same risk factor as I would experience driving my Super White (yes, that is a Toyota paint color) Yaris with all my anti-Obama commentary on it down 8-Mile Rd. in Detroit.
Talk about a SERIOUS death-wish (or WORSE wish)! I’ve never heard of Super-White, but I always trust the experts.
But you’re right about the danger these guys faced. I tried to point that out facetiously, but they faced a very real risk. “We must all hang together, or we will surely hang separately” comes from that era, I believe.
And King George ran his fingers up and down over his lips and went blublblublblblblub and then grabbed his daughters ladies maids ass.
Well, losing the 13 Colonies would make you a little mad, too!
let’s not forget that (as this painting clearly shows) our founding fathers went to work everyday wearing wigs, high heels and make-up. anyone doing that on a regular basis is clearly fearless.
We like the way you think. Most people don’t know that the Founding Fathers were also Titanic Trannies.
