What does a Sword stabbing a skull and crossbones mean?

Alritey then, a sword thru a skull and crossbones can mean a lot of different things, but let's take them in order. 1. Definitely it could be a PIRATE thing, many pirates made up their own flags with their favorite icons on them....They were almost always put on a black background because a black flag was a sign of 'NO QUARTER'... 2. With the sword going thru the skull and crossbones it could be a sign of anti-pirates.....pirate hunters were known to chase down the criminals for the reward.... 3. the first and last definition of the skull and crossbones is 'DANGER' and of course, 'POISON'......In ancient times a cross roads might be marked with a skull and cross bones to let travelers be wary of hiwaymen, pirates on the land. 4. It just might be a really nifty design that somebody likes.. Hope this helps................B

Did the colonist agree with the sugar act and the stamp act?

No, the colonists didn't agree with the Sugar Act and Stamp Act. The colonists protested because each act put taxes on stamps, sugar, molasses and more. Colonists thought it was unfair to them because the British were taxing them. They protested at the side of more acts and they eventually had the Revolutionary War.
