Never the quote around... never to shy to make one up.

Are you saying you cannot ignore your urges as you close in on the playground, camera in hand?

I came to pretty much the same conclusion a while back. That's why I stopped posting to him.

I don't mind talking about him but I don't talk to him and I certainly don't reply to his posts.

Absolutely
Not that it'll make any difference to barefoot
It wouldn't make a difference to Barefoot kowkow because CITIZENS of the US ELECT the *ELECTORS* in the Electoral College who in turn vote for the President while you subjects of the monarch do not get to vote for the head of state (the monarch) nor do you get any say in who the prime minister is.

Of course, Barefoot is dealing with actual fact and real laws... why you do not.

So many lies, so little time. Pedantically speaking.
Process one lie at a time.
You can process these "lies" in a single post using quote syntaxes. Otherwise, most of your posts get ignored.

So many lies, so little time you see.

We are still waiting for you to explain why anybody should care about the Queen or the Lords based on what they do rather than what a piece of paper says they do.

Trolls are fun in moderation. If you have time to kill and ignore their profanity and bluster, they make good flies to swat.

But It Wasn't The Reason For The Terrorist Attack In Libya....
You are a genius: notice how after two weeks you are able to use what the administration has been able to determine to be the cause of the killings to determine the reasons for the killings.

Now you will be able to use your hindsight to find a way to keep the attack from happening!

I’m not bothered what it is, it is deeply offensive to over 1/3 of the worlds population and simply objectionable to most other people. It breaks laws in the majority of countries in the world. It was made fraudulently with dubbed vocals with the sole intention of inciting hatred. And for this you do not think the filmmaker was responsible for making his film?
Tell me if your next door neighbour walked up to your house and crapped on the doorstep would you consider joe bloggs in the next town responsible or the neighbour who befouled your step responsible?
I was hoping you would read that link as a whole and consider the whole document, not just a selective part of a paragraph. It goes a long way do explaining and understanding the divide between the west and the Muslim world.
You are not making a fair comparison you are trying to justify censorship. That is a big part of being American , you can speak you mind with ease that you are free to do so . Anyone can be roasted and no one is beyond this. You slander Christianity's martyr but defend the Mohammad. You believe it acceptable to slander one but not the other? For special pleading because the Muslim monkeys are more aggressive than the Christ monkeys?
In America we can tell both set of monkeys to stfu and quit quibbling over your monkey kings. The whole thing is ridiculous.
If Muslims can't behave like humans with reasoning skills higher than monkeys , then they need to be caged or lobotomized.
The people who murder others over a film are simply murderous and treacherous bastards that do not belong in society anyway.

The monarch of the UK can dissolve the Parliament.

Start there.

Even the President of the United States- who we elect- cannot dissolve the US Congress.

Putting aside that the subjects of the monarch of UK don't even vote for the PM.

"President Obama argued for absolute freedom of expression, asserting that he defended this right even for those who criticised him. He described the video as “disgusting” but condemned the violent reactions to it in the Muslim world especially the murder of the US ambassador in Libya. Obama opined that restraints on freedom of expression result in repression, particularly against minorities."
I'll remind him of that when the Mexicans and Arabs outnumber my kind.
