Ever read it?
Folks think it's this great document. And the beginning of it is.
It says stuff like:
>>>>We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness<<<<<<<<<<<
Good stuff, correct?
Now go do a google search and read the whole thing.
Or should I sum it up?
I should sum it up....is that what you said?
Okay....about to sum up The Declaration of Independence. Possibly the most important document in US history (except maybe my unlimited texting plan with Verizon Wireless)
Here it comes. And I'm not making this up.
After all the life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness crap it's basically a document saying what a total douchebag King George is.
Numerous bullet points:
- King George is a douche.
-King George is a douche for taxes.
-King George is a douche for cutting off trade.
-King George is a douche for waging war against us (oh...boo-hoo-hoo....)
-King George is a douche for "quartering large bodies of troops against us" (boo-hoo-hoo)
-King George is a douche for not providing us with Trial By Jury (maybe you should quit breaking laws Mr. Colonist?)
-King George is a douche for 'plundering our seas' (admit it...that sounds kinda cool)
-King George is a douche for 'ravaging our coasts' (so does this)
-King George is a douche because he 'burnt our towns' (maybe not so cool...unless it was Roxbury or something)
And the document just goes on and on slammin' King George left and right.
Could they not say ANYTHING nice about the guy?
Even Hitler liked dogs. No mention of King George liking dogs.
