The queen is merely a figurehead, no power, you prancing queen.
" Members of Parliament are required to swear an oath of loyalty to the queen, not to the people who elected them and not to a constitution. Those who have refused have been barred from taking their seats in the legislature. Bishops of the Church of England also swear their allegiance to the monarch, rather than to their god or their church. Police officers and soldiers likewise swear loyalty to the Queen, not to the government or their country.

The monarch has the power to:

Choose the Prime Minister.
Dismiss ministers and governments.
Dissolve Parliament.
Refuse to agree to legislation passed by Parliament.
Dismiss the governments of other countries of which she is monarch.
Pardon convicted criminals.
Declare a state of emergency.
Issue proclamations.
Command the army and raise a personal militia. "

Not enough.

Like many of the super rich, for example, Romney paid at less than 14 percent tax rate. Most middle class pay more than twice that rate.

Romney- like many of the superrich- hides his wealth in shadow bank accounts and puts his wealth into "trust funds" while pay for expenditures from those funds and taking a stipend as a salary, to avoid taxes.

The obvious solution to this is to tax at the same rate for income and capital gains.

700,000 to lose thier jobs and more to become under employed. The liberals answer to these issues is to either make them public union employees or place them on government assistance. Either way thier solution will be for the working tax paying American citizen to support these people.

The usual BS post from someone who has no concept of the tax code. If you want any credibility shown to you. Put your flip flops on, and go to the library. There you probably will need someone to explain the tax code to you?
Tell you something else... "Shoeless Joe", If you had as much money as Romney, you would hide it from the Feds also, Quit your complaining, and get a job....

You not paying any taxes at all leaves you at a disadvantage when it comes to knowledge here.

Romney paid less than 14 percent.

Have your math teach explain what 14 percent means and how 14 percent is half of 28 percent.

Gee Whiz, you have no idea of what you speak? You just keep putting your stupidity on display, for all to see... I'll compare my tax bill to yours any day, Barefootin' It? I've said it before, If.. he paid any more than 10% it's too much. The Good Lord only asks for 10% why should the Giverment ask for more?? Give it a rest. What does the percentage he paid have do with it how much the Givement overspends?

liberals have basically said good on these threads. They say another company will take their place. But that is nonsense. People lose their jobs and just like Bruce said "these jobs are going boys and they ain't coming back".

I don't really care of you do or not. The reason you don't reply is because I constantly show you wrong. I understand why you wouldn't want to respond to 800,000 people losing their jobs. It don't fit with your delusion that obammycare was good. When in fact obammy and his foolish policies are hurting the very people he claims to want to help. But it's more than that. You personally are complicit in these people losing their jobs. You and the other people who voted for obammy are guilty. You owe them an explanation. I know you aren't man enough to do the right thing.
