Hmmm when I saw the thread title I wondered if it was a mad plan by Blair to bring the US back into the British Empire. Not sure if we'd want it all back though - I'd think we'd probably donate Texas to charity.

me: I mean, what can you say about a government that can, say, forbid you from making a living by offering people a place to eat and smoke? And federal judges who deny the right to keep and bear arms!
Joe Pluta: The smoking ban is as inane as prohibition, but it's not exactly a reason to run up the hammer and sickle on the flagpole. And while I believe in the right to bear arms, I don't believe in the right to bear AK-47s and cop-killer bullets. If the pro-gun lobby were to be a little less pedantic in its position, there might be a compromise.
