Right. So When Will the “Prophet” Bubble Burst?


By what do we mean the Revolution? The war? That was no part of the Revolution; it was only an effect and consequence of it. The Revolution was in the minds of the people, and this was effected, from 1760 to 1775, in the course of fifteen years before a drop of blood was shed at Lexington. The records of thirteen legislatures, the pamphleteers, newspapers in all the colonies, ought to be consulted during that period to ascertain the steps by which the public opinion was enlightened and informed concerning the authority of Parliament over the colonies. – John Addams, letter to Thomas Jefferson, August 24, 1815

The “authority of Parliament” bubble had rather a rough time here in the Colonies. We’re not yet done: It seems that bubbles are a’ poppin’ all over the place.

About that “prophet” bubble… lan astaslam.

    Nice bubble round-up.

    “I will not surrender!” I’m guessing that didn’t come from David Cameron’s lips….
