Was the Declaration of Independence Illegal, or, If You Lose in Battle at Yorktown, Wait a Bit Until the Yanks Are on Their Heels Then Take The Blasted Rebels to Court!-----
Interesting moot court debate in Philadelphia this week opened "old scabs" of contention between two former adversaries over the legality of independence and the rights of people to stand up against the government when redress of grievances are ignored or repressed.
PS--The British don't really want us back. (What would "The Mother of Parliaments" do with a colony of 310 million people with our crumbling bridges, a tattered social safety net, the NBA lockout, et al. Then the politicians in Washington who hang around forever, suck up money like a vacuum going after dust mites and never shut up when they get on television?)
Like they don't have enough trouble just with their home grown mother-politicians ?
No, these barristers just want to show us how witty and smart they are.
And isn't that "bloody typical!" ;-)
