You "demonstrated" the members of the House of Common had the power to dissolve Parliament for ten days before finally admitting that you were wrong.

And of course, I pointed out that you were wrong minutes after you posted it.

And you confused the House of Commons with the Lords, not me.

And you insisted you voted for people that you never voted for.

I merely pointed out that you lied.

Tell us, darling: WHO APPOINTS THE MEMBERS OF THE HOUSE OF LORDS?

It doesn't take three paragraphs, it can been done with one word.

And even if we pretended that you were correct or even went further and pretended that the CoE appointed not just the Lords Spiritual, but the whole of the House of Lords...
This is yet another of a long string of lies.

Just as you insisted that I said subjects of the realm didn't get to vote for members of the Parliament.

I've asked you for two weeks to back this statement: of course you can't, I NEVER EVER said this.

Spin, spin, spin.

... really, so what? The Lords have been stripped of any real power since 1911.
You also say the monarch has no power yet the monarch can dismiss the entire government.

If he/she is so inclined.

No matter how hard you stomp your feet.

But one lie at a time: do show us where I said you didn't have any vote.

If Barefoot's arguments had any basis in reality.
I guess you forgot already, SuperFAG, that you have already conceded that you were wrong about the House of Commons having the power to dissolve the Parliament and my argument based in reality: the Queen... was correct.

It isn't my fault that it takes you ten days of having it crammed up your azz to make you admit you are wrong even when it is clear to everyone here that I have my foot there.

We are now moving to your claim that I said that there was no vote for the House of Commons.

I say you are a liar (a liar... again).

Do stop diverting.

Though of course you can try to answer the question: WHAT ONE PERSON APPOINTS MEMBERS TO THE HOUSE OF LORDS?

Take the anti-atheist legislation that exists in various state constitutions. Are these laws in place? Yes, they certainly are.
Has there been a Supreme Court ruling saying that they are unconstitutional?

Why, yes there is. Posted long ago.

Does KowKow understand that unconstitutional laws cannot be enforced?

Apparently not.

It's the fact that we are a republic that grants gays the same rights as heteros a democracy would favor the majority that doesn't have Wicca books and fairy posters in her room at age 43

Wrong.

Unconstitutional laws can be and are enforced all the time.

Ask the filmmaker if his policy of hatred yielded the results he expected. Obama DID not realise that film, Obama cannot be blamed for releasing that film. Obama cannot be blamed for inciting hatred. Although I could never condone violence (unlike you) I do believe that people are responsible for their actions so lets think who actually is RESPONSIBLE for releasing that film, was it the filmmaker or was it the president?
Funnily enough that half also have the vote, thatís democracy for ya.
Neither the film maker or the film had anything to do with the violence.

Sorry you are against the First Amendment.

Any other parts of the Bill of Rights you want to do away with?

Or just when free speech doesn't suit you?

You are an idiot, and an apologist for muslim terrorists.

Congratulations.

What Part Of They Took Billions In A Bailout And Sent It And Its Jobs Overseas, Dont You Get ?

I Am Paying For That Bailout, Against My And The Majorities Wishes.

Because You Dont Live Here And Havent A Clue, Let Me Educate You....Nothing That Comes In From Foreign Soil Is Worth A Crap....Worthless Junk. Nothing Compares To Americas Manufacturing Or Quality.

The Imbeciles That Have Run This Country Over The Last 20 Years Or So, Have Also Allowed Unfair Trade From China, Japan, ETC....

I Think O'le Hilary Actually Made The Call On Bin Laden While Urcle Hid In The Corner. But The Point Is, Without The Interrogation From The Bush Admin, The Location Of Osama Would Not Have Been Known. Now, I Believe Both Bush And Obammy Wanted To Let Him Live, And Im Not Sure Hes Even Dead. He Worked For The CIA, And Has Something On Them Because Clinton, Bush, And Obammy, Chose To Let Him Go.

The Truth Most Times Is Stranger Then Fiction.

From this side of the pond, you are sadly mistaken.

No DF you are disillusioned the president of the US has little effect on world economy , other than a persona of fortune or misfortune. The Fed Reserve does though , they have everything to do with it. Of course if a president pushes and creates a war it has impact. But if there will be war party lines mean nothing, it's above them. War will happen if the conditions are there for war regardless of the controlling party at the time.

Violence is created by those who want violence , no filmmaker creates violence, they create films .
The film does not make people mad, people make themselves mad.
Some do not need a reason to be mad, the truth is if you are not in control of your actions then wth is?
People can say you made me mad, but the truth is.
We make ourselves mad no one else can control you like that, unless you have a very weak mind that is.

Heath care by the government is nothing but a source of revenue top the government AKA a tax without saying it's a tax. another way to get your money , nothing more.

If it was so good why did they (congress and senate as well as the president are exempt from it) make themselves exempt from it.
because it's a tax not a cure or help.

The entire purpose of the "film" was to incite violence.

Period.

It was not an art film.
