In America, atheists are still in the closet

So do many other interest and identity groups. Complaint is our political lingua franca: it's what Occupiers, Tea Partiers, Wall Street titans, religious and irreligious people share.

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 we still waiting for you to catch up with your lie that I said subjects in the UK did not vote for members of the House of Commons.
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.

Still waiting for you to back up that ORIGINAL quote from two weeks ago, dear.

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.

It would help if you knew what lies actually are. To date, your definition of "lie" seems to go along the lines of people making wrong statements based on ignorance rather than statements made with the intention of deceiving people.

Why? So you can then claim that you "meant" something else even though not once did you even mention the Lords until it became obvious to you that we do indeed vote in MPs to the Commons?

I think the phrase "teach a pig to sing" is more than adequate to sum up your request.

Yes.

Look at them.

Let's make a list of all the leaders he's snubbed...

So far on draft dodger's Romney world tour, he was up to two out of three.

Funny how that goes.

Now if you can only get to ignoring entirely.

HOney, I am not saying that you aren't above everything else ignorant, that is painfully obvious to all.

Still waiting for you to post that quote- you know, when you insisted I said something I did not say.

And when what you CHANGED what I did say to try to suit better your paraphrase- when you changed where I said "members of Parliament" to *M*embers of Parliament" so you could insist I was refering to MPs... i.e., you would say "MPs of the House of Parliament"

Even though I have a history (of over a year) be specific: Lords, and Lords Spiritual.

I don't need to refer to the internet definitions of "lie" or wrangle with "is-is". I've know what I lie was since I was around four years old.

You are a liar.
