Bumper Stickers
« on: June 23, 2012, 08:07:58 PM »
Does anyone have one of the "funny British accent" bumper stickers that they are willing to give up?  One of our students from the last BF shoot has a daughter going to Oxford (yeah, the one in England) and he's trying to locate that bumper sticker.  They are out of stock in the Appleseed store.

Also, any SBs with a spare red hat, please PM me.
One of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors.    Plato

Still, if you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than live as slaves.    Churchill

They can be found at the Appleseed Store

If ye love wealth better than liberty,the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom,go home from us.We ask not your counsels or arms.Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you.May your chains set lightly upon you and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.

Why do most Americans mock a British accent when we created the language in the first place?



Some cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go.
- Oscar Wilde

The way to procure insults is to submit to them: a man meets with no more respect than he exacts.
- William Hazlitt

A slander is like a hornet; if you can't kill it dead the first time, better not strike at it.
- H.W. Shaw

I am a poor man, but I would gladly give ten shillings to find out who sent me the insulting Christmas card I received this morning.
- George Grossmith

Insults should be written in sand, compliments should be carved in stone.
- Arab Proverb

Why do most Americans mock a British accent when we created the language in the first place? Hence why the language is called English, surely we were first to speak it, so why do they laugh?

   I think the "silly British accent" is kinda tongue-in-cheek humor, something which "helps make the point" of the bumpersticker.
"Ready to eat dirt and sweat bore solvent?" - Ask me how to become an RWVA volunteer!

      "...but he that stands it now, deserves the thanks of man and woman alike..."   Paine

     "If you can read this without a silly British accent, thank a Revolutionary War veteran" - Anon.

     "We have it in our power to begin the world over again" - Thomas Paine

     What about it, do-nothings? You heard the man, jump on in...

Probably the same reason we say that we don't speak German and raise a hand in the air????

Might have something to do with Liberty and Freedom, but then that is just a thought...
Remember only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you: JESUS CHRIST and the AMERICAN ARMED FORCES.
One died for your soul, the other for your freedom-Unk

"The propitious smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right which Heaven itself has ordained."---Geo Washington, 1789

Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles.---Isaiah 40:31

A wrathful man stirs up strife,
But he who is slow to anger allays contention.---Prov15:18

"Wisdom is higher than a fool can reach." --P. Wheatley
