  1. This is a good illustration of why the British decided to take a different approach to how they handled the Australian colonials after the US War of Independence.

    Yep, exactly the difference in national character, bemused.

    Australia doesn’t value it’s inheritance, it gained it too easily and will give it away with the same ease.

    Boulder is definitely “Pleasantville”. Who knew there was a strong thread of civil disobedience simmering behind the picket fences and leafy lawns?

    Which leads me to the current blog banner – a thing of myth, an aberration, a momentary brain snap in the national psyche of lazy, mindless compliance.

    We were a colony then, not a nation.

    I was watching mountain homes and they featured Sedona Arizona , thought would be a nice place to live. Seems right.

    USA: The people own the government
    Australia: The government owns the people

    The difference between Amerika and Australia is that Americans fought and shed blood for their independence and freedom. Australia was established as a penal colony and was given the “independence” from GB. However, mentally we are still a penal colony.
    Besides that, Amerika has the Constitution that in the first sentence says:
    “We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

    And we have been disarmed and are now ripe for the plucking!
