I'd like to swing this past a few of the folks on here:

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/jk...

On the John Stewart show, the guest was none other than the Harry Potter author, J.K. Rowling.

Aside from her jests that the US could do with a monarch, she did make one very good point:

She (J.K Rowling) lived on state money during the early stages of her career.(In Britain, it is called "on benefits" instead of "welfare")

Now despite the heavy criticism of some of you that you do not wish to "support the freeloaders", Rowling became one of the bestselling authors OF ALL TIME with her Harry Potter series, that led to cults of fans, a movie series and millions of supporters. Harry Potter is THE global phenomenon of the 2000-2010 era and the entire enterprise is worth not millions, but billions.

During this venture, she herself became one of the richest women in the world, and was responsible for thousand of jobs.

Now people: THIS IS WHY WE SHOULD SUPPORT THOSE IN NEED. Because every person may be a diamond in the rough.

God is a plant??
Cool!
Does god like organic fertiliser, or can I just use 2:3:2 on him?
How did you come up with that? I said God's creation. One of the creations are plants.

Looks like it's you that needs watering and some sun, you vegetable.

I'm not the one who had to be reminded that you had two houses, and the larger of your two houses- House of Lords- are APPOINTED.
To review:
Two Houses, the larger is appointed by the monarch, you have absolutely nos say in at at all.
The monarch can dissolve Parliament for any reason whatsoever, you have absolutely no say in it whatsoever.
The lower house: the prime minsiter is appointed by the monarch, you have absolutely no say in it.
The monarch can dismiss the entire thing after tea, if she or he is so enclined.
And no one cares about the dog catcher elections.
PS: I don't need you to confirm facts.
No you donít have to remind me, I live here and would honestly not relish an amended piece of paper telling me what I can and canít do.

You donít need to remind me that my children are not compelled to worship at school

You donít need to remind me that I do not need to worship in a CofE church or anywhere.

You also donít have to remind me that your president is appointed by the Electoral College

You also donít have to remind me that Lehman brothers bank collapsed along with 452 others.

You also donít need to remind me that the US is in debt to China for over one trillion dollars.

You also donít need to remind me that itís fine for an American to commit genocide just so long as he has at least one million dollars.

You also donít need to remind me that the queens own words, which I have given you the link to (and I assume you have ignored) prove you wrong.

You also donít need to remind me that in Maryland, Massachusetts, North and South Carolina , Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Texas you MUST acknowledge that a mythical exists being before you can be elected.

To review. The involvement of US bankers in the subprime mortgage scandal was solely responsible for the world recession, A financial problem that the US, most of Europe and much of the world is still struggling to get out of. Your government and your appointed president admit this. Your bankers admit this as they luxuriate in the cash they conned from the scandal, three times.

Wrong, donít know much about British politics do you?

Wrong, donít know much about British politics do you?

You certainly donít care because it means that you are a pathetic moron with no concept of UK politics but plenty of christian spite and bile and of course real figures, of real elected councillors make your arguments look pathetic because they are pathetic. Your arguments are fuelled by christian spite and bile, hatred and pure deliberate ignorance.

BTW, just to prove you are clueless councillors are not dog catchers. Dog catchers are employed, not elected.

P.S. No need for you to make yourself look even more stupid,

A bet you will win, I am sure. I have a smal garden where I stay now.
However, the old house near Pretoria had a massive landscape -on the edge of the rural area. Only problem was a lot of snakes and scorpions snuck around so you never wanted to venture too far.
All that aside - do you do your own gardening?

You said a plant is proof of your god.

If a plant proves his existence, then logically he must be a vegetable.

Don't worry. We won't say anything bout your veggie god
