Now. NOW – I do not care that you NOW say 15000, you DID SAY 7000 and I posted you the link to your own statement in which you said 7000.
Sweetie: Banks are banks, and saving& loans are saving& loans.

They aren't the same thing.

And when it comes down to it, darling, a couple hundred bank & savings is loans is but a fraction, and, again- as I have pointed out several times- the "failed" banks are banks that have been closed for failing to meet our more stringent REGULATIONS which keep OUR banking system stable.

And 7000 is 7000 and 15000 is 15000

Failed because the system is stable – right

Fact of the matter: you therefore do not vote for the president.
Fact of the matter: we vote for the people who do vote for the president. It is hard to get 250 million people in the same building.

Fact of the matter: you do not vote for your head of state, and you don't even get to vote for your prime minister. You do not vote for anyone in one of the two houses of your impairment.

And the Queen can cancel everyone Parliament at tea time.

And there's isn't a man thing you can do about it.

Some of the UK (England and Wales - we have been here before yet you still insist on claiming the entire UK – why?
England & Wales is 80 percent of the population, and if you ever get around to speaking English, UK has a state religion, it is the Church of England.

Here is how it works: Does the UK have a state religion... yes, hold up one finger... that is for the Church of England.

Does the USA have a state religion...NO.

I didn’t try to post anything private and I expected you to jump. However you butted in and then made specious claims.

I have no problem with that just so long as you realise (as most others do) that your claim was false

There you go again, making up more BS because you have no facts to work with.

So I guess it must be 3/3 for you

So – 80% it is not 100%

The UK does not have a state religion, England and Wales do

Here how it works England and Wales that’s two fingers to you

Scotland and Northern Ireland don’t, that’s another two fingers to you

Even the “elected” government guarantees the individuals freedom of and from religious expression
It is good you put "elected" in quotes because most of your government isn't elected.

Most are appointed.

And the head of state... inherited.

PS: If the UK enjoys "religious freedom", why do people have to sue to be able to wear a cross to work?

Relax man. It's Monday. Going to burn yourself out before the week is done.

Do you ever do gardening?

Curbs the excess anger. It is kind of like having Mr. Miagi as your mentor.

HAHAHQAHAAHAHAHAHAHAH!

Oh my, I wonder how many heads rolled after running too liberal a tongue?

PS:
(quote)
British citizens are covered by the European Convention on Human Rights which states: "Everyone has the right to freedom of expression."

But it adds that governments can restrict free speech for, among other reasons, in the interests of national security, preserving public safety and for the prevention of disorder or crime.

Also been over the head of state thing with you, who cares but you?
The monarch can cancel the ONLY PEOPLE (the minority) of people you do get to vote for.

By tea time.

You care enough to roll around on the floor and stomp your feet for the last one hundred comments or so.

Oh what a hypocrite she is WAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
I haven't whined a single time. That's one of the things that makes you so angry with me.

Nothing you say or do gets to me, barefooty. I know you keep hoping that your repeated attempts at insult will finally break me down and I'll whine, but it's not going to happen.

You have a good afternoon.

Poor lying NympHO: never use a quote when she can misquote.
Pay attention:
A) Active duty in combat zone do not pay *federal* income taxes. They are *EXCLUDED*.
B) Some members of the US military fall below the income threshold for paying federal income tax.
C) Some retired members of the US military fall below the income threshold for paying federal income tax.
NO matter how hard you stomp your feet.
I'm not the one stomping my feet and screaming 'I'm right! I'm right! I'm always right!' You are.

You're correct. Some military personnel do not pay taxes because they fall below the threshold.

Now, are you satisfied or are you going to keep copying this and pasting it for another couple of months?
