"Our Country!
In her intercourse with foreign nations may she always be in the right;
but right or wrong, our country!"

Rue Britannia

In the last century, Britain and America had a special relationship.  Britain, once the mother country, had become our greatest ally, but sadly, things are not well with our cousins across the water.  As the Daily Mail reports, the British are every day losing their identity in the face of the transnationalist multicultural onslaught.
Alan Phillips was told he would have to travel five miles to another branch if he wanted the Big Daddy, a chicken burger, topped with bacon, cheese and salad.

The branch, in Burton-on-Trent, Staffordshire, is one of 86 KFC restaurants which is running trials of a scheme where they sell nothing other than halal meat.

The company has taken the burger off the menu because Islamic dietary law forbids Muslims to eat anything which has been prepared on the same premises as pork, which is itself strictly forbidden.
One of the most frequent arguments in favor of President Obama's policies, especially healthcare reform, is that we should be more like Europe.  As the richest nation on earth, we ought to have the same massive entitlement state as the other developed nations.

However, the entitlement state comes at a price.  When people no longer have pride in their own work, when all energy is directed to support the ever-increasing burden of a ponderous and overwhelming government, society suffers.  The bonds between citizens break apart and the individual is left alone to petition a monolithic and uncaring bureaucracy for assistance instead of being the master of his own fate.

The decline of Britain should be a warning to all.  They have learned the hard way the true price of Leviathan, but there is still time for us to learn from their example.
