But thats the capital building...
@Kim Jong Nam, I was going to comment that but since you did, here's an up vote
@Kim Jong Nam, the average American doesn't know that.
@Kim Jong Nam, *capitol building
@Kim Jong Nam, close enough
@xSparkySharky, that's a sad fact
@xSparkySharky, I'm an Australian and even I know that.
@xSparkySharky, oh okay that make sense then maybe he didn't know
@Kim Jong Nam, also hurricanes don't produce lightning. They're actually just giant rain storms. Not thunderstorms. So much fail.
That's what fake Americans get for killing real Americans.
@rwbylover54, Fake Americans? You mean illegal immigrants?
@ archiethesailor, Pretty much except these ones are from a long time ago.
@rwbylover54, If you're talking about the colonials, that was a conquest of a land without a unified government, not an illegal immigration to a proper civilisation. We are the real Americans.
@ archiethesailor, I know that but if people went to America now and started killing people I doubt that they would react very well.
@rwbylover54, well what were native Americans called before they called it america.
@ archiethesailor, Americans didn't immigrate we concurred.
@paunchy, I don't know but they sure as hell lived there first.
@rwbylover54, it's not illegal immigration if you take over. Then it's an invasion and turns in to a conquest. History is written by the victors not those who lost.
@ViralVirgin, Thanks but I couldn't care less about what they think about me.
Have an upvote!
@George Feeny, So you agree that it was an 'invasion'?
@ViralVirgin, Not necessarily, just because I was raised to love trucks, off-roading, tobacco, to understand the confederate flag and what people refer to as southern pride, doesn't mean I can't understand the atrocious acts of our forefathers who settled the west. Let alone take a joke.
@rwbylover54, Nope, we wouldn't, we'd have a right to fight back.
@rwbylover54, is that even a real question? Of course it was I mean we used biological warfare and had superior weapons and equipment. But that in no way changes the fact that as I said history is written by the victors. For example when the British attacked the American colonies they had advanced weapons however they used outdated tactics which is why their invasion failed. When you win an invasion you are no longer considered immigrants. You are the victor, the British would have been the victors and America would still be under British rule.
@George Feeny, by advanced I am referring to advanced at the time as the native Americans used bows and other short range weapons while the colonist used guns. Sorry for the long post I have a degree to teach history specializing in ancient civilizations and American history. Sometimes I go over board because I love history.
@George Feeny, I see what you're saying but, back to my earlier point, if somone came over to America and invaded you and defeated you then you can't even try and say that you would be fine with that.
@rwbylover54, nope I can't but that won't change the result. I'm not always happy with the government but there's little I can do about it. Until the next election.
@rwbylover54, sshh, no one likes to talk about what happened to the natives and will say anything to justify it.
@Colonel Krusty , actually that's not true. I love talking about history. Even dark periods of history.
@Colonel Krusty , but again I'm wired like that. I just love history a bit too much. Lol
@George Feeny, weird*
@George Feeny, but you actually talk about history in a smart way, unlike most people here. Then again you love history.
@Colonel Krusty , haha that's true.
@George Feeny, keep teaching history, soldier.
@rwbylover54, if some nation came and conquered America today, and slaughtered us, they wouldn't be illegal immigrants or pretend Americans. They'd be victorious conquerors, and they'd call themselves whatever they want.
Are we just going to ignore the fact the person has an umbrella In a lightning storm?
@Basil Fawlty, are we gonna ignore that that's the Capitol building, not the White House?
This man died on my birthday...
