Before you arrive here, you really should know that we Scots get very snippy when people call us English.
Well done for being proud of being an American and a Texan. My condolences on having Mr Bush claiming to be a native of your State.
Well, Bush can claim all he wants...not all Texans claim him...
I never voted for the man, still cant believe he won another term...at least this will be his last. It's time for a woman president.
Sorry about that....it's been a while, yes I know how the Scots get when they're called English, that's why I only mention the English because I knew we were at least fighting them. I couldnt remember if it was all of Britian or just the English. Figured I'd leave the others out since I couldnt remember. sorry.
Didnt know Vermount was it's own country either...interesting. They kinda left that one out of our history books.
