Hello there New Yorkers,

Im from the Netherlands and since I like my puny little nation, I would like to spread the word that we where - once upon a time - a not so small nation. We actually founded New York (which was called New Amsterdam by the way) and pretty much the rest of the modern New York state.

So here some pictures how it is to live in the New Netherlands:

It's Dutch, yes.

Biking is good for your health!

And for some more reference material go to:

So hereby I urge you to rebel and once again join our nation!

Greetings from the Netherlands

But before we hand over NYS to the Dutch, we have to ask these guys first:

Im not spamming though, since this isnt my website. Just found it on accident on my quest to find supporters on the internet!

Well first we're going to replace some strees with canals. They are far more conveniant than roads. Then we'll import about 1 million bikes and hand them out.

But in the long term there are some major changes like:

- Ban gun use and gun possession
- Lower the alcohol limit to 16 instead of a 21 (haha)
- Implement the metric system
- Make vehicles more fuel efficient so you won't need a gallon (3,78 litres) a mile (1.61 kilometres)
- Teach everybody Dutch, wouldnt you love to speak your own language abroad knowing that probably nobody understands you. Hell, even in China they speak English.
- Tolerate marihuana use from the age of 18, hey everybody needs to chill out at some point.

And ofcourse there are other things, for example: with the rising temperatures sea levels will rise. You'll need dams and levee's. Who can build them? Yes, the dutch.

Sounds good I say.

I think your ideas are brilliant for NYC...and they'd be great for this entire country...this place needs and overhaul.

Why don't you come and get it with your almighty Dutch army, just like you did in Srebrenica. Oh wait, never mind...

I'll never accept the metric system......but otherwise, I like your ideas. Let's do lunch with Bloomy and we'll come to some sort of agreement. ;)
