That Is, Like, SO USA


Guy Van Duser, absolutely killing The Stars and Stripes Forever by John Philip Sousa, on the cuestick guitar.

Happy Independence Day to all my fellow Americans. To all my British friends: Better luck next time!

I posted Chet Atkins, who gave a shout out to Guy. So great. Happy Independence Day!

I once saw a little guy wearing red Chuck Taylors, playing a guitar in a bar in Flagstaff, play this...it was the 80's, and I had never seen or heard anything like it. To this day, it is one of my favorite 4th of July memories.

Have a great day and as a Brit I'd like to say no hard feelings although if you would have stuck with us you wouldn't have had to learn Spanish.

true, Thud, true.
But we would have had to learn Arabic and pay the jizya.

Dad of homeschoolers, not sure of your point here as I believe your president sports the name Hussein whereas here outside of a few inner cities life seems pretty much the same and as I have a home in both nations I'm more than aware of which culture is undergoing rather radical changes.

Thud, England is becoming muslim; that's what dohs means.

Really? I hadn't noticed whereas when at my American home I am aware of the increasing influence of the rapidly growing latino community. As far as I'm aware it isn't Britain that has a white population rapidly becoming a minority but what do I know as I just live in both countries plus this isn't my blog and it certainly isn't the place for this subject.

It probably stems from the fact that most of the news from GB around here just laments that there are people banned from the country for pointing islamism is violent, news that there are neighborhoods that ordinary people can't enter The people with the permit gets arrested when the muzzies show up etc. Lot like saying I've been to Britain cuz I've been to London. Yea, Like someones been to New York saying they've been to America.

Mostly it was just tongue in cheek answer to the thing about spanish. It's not as prevalent as can be led to believe.
