    Let's see. English banks financed voyages for profit. English banks owned 'bout everything. We paid tribute. We threw off the yoke of the Bank of England and now we seem to be banking partners. Who'd a thunk it?

    I don't think America was ever a "child" of GB. If anything we are more like a slave that fought and won his freedom.

    Then the answer to your question should be pretty obvious.

    Truth be told, I'm pretty much German-American, but English law and standards were pretty much the models of our founding.

    I'm partial to Arabic, myself. Middle Easterners have a geographical disadvantage, but they seem to be more organized in their violence.

    If so, I hope the Queen tells Obama that he's not the messiah, he's a very naughty boy.
