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.

Funny how you keep insisting you don't move the goalposts and the first thing you do is move the goalposts sometimes in the same comment that you insist that you aren't moving the goalposts.
I posted the list that counted active ships just before the war started, before ships start sinking, before the USA gave the UK fifty ships...
And remember you are the one insisting the UK could have won WWII without our help...
COUGH.
Why do you continue to talk about 1937, the war started in 1939 you dumbass, and in 1939, britain had the biggest navy, and America didn't join the war untill two years after britain, and during those two years, guess what, britain was still fighting and winning, hadn't been invaded and had beaten Germany in all our major battles, so its not a question of would britain have won, we were winning, and we were doing it on our own, America had no input in the first two years, and very little input after that, ww2 was a European war, America were an irrelivence

The entire enigma program was a great British victory, something America were incapable of doing

Of course it is a loaded question. You have completely redefined our monarchy so that the royal family are not seen as the ornamental celebrities that they are, and openly accept they are, but as genuine political players in our system of government. Your argument starts and ends with that question.
That is why you never pursue the topic beyond what the pieces of papers literally say. You argue like a fundie, Barefoot, because like them you have delusions that you wish to believe are true.
You really need help with your cognitive dissonance. I suggest getting something called "friends", in the place "outside", where you will get something called a "life". Seriously, it will do you a lot of good.
Lol

At nearly 80 posts a day, "friends", "outside" and "life" will remain alien concepts to barefoot.

You may enjoy this piece of hypocritical flip-flop from barefoot ....

Wouldn't it be cool if everything had a simple "yes or no" answer.
Many things do, e.g., there is one correct answer to "Is the UK a monarchy"?

He continues to post 75 year old material for two reasons.
1. He lives in the past.
2. It's a diversionary method to keep people from talking about the subject of this thread.

And then there's just his naturally hateful, argumentative nature.

It's beautiful to watch him flounder around in circles, all the while claiming that his viewpoint is the only correct one.

They weren't even the Battle of Britain until the Germans changed their tactics and used the British strategy of bombing civilian populations.

And they were getting their asses whupped in the Atlantic.

Of course, I use actual facts. You use jingoism.

Who captured the enigma machine=Britain
Who decoded the enigma machine=Britain
Who did absolutely nothing=America
Who won ww1=Britain and France
Who did nothing=America
Who won ww2=Britain and Russia
Who did nothing=America
Do you see the patern here, in every single way, America have hopelessly failed to reach the power, influence, dominance and greatness that Britain did. The difference between a middle power like America and a superpower like britain was is so huge it would be imbarrasing for you if I pointed out the countless reasons for Americas lack of impact on the world compared to Britain

America helped on ww2, but it was a minor player, the fact that you want to believe otherwise OS the result of ypur own delusions of grandeur, britain was fighting the nazis for two years without American input, and were winning, the countrys that swung the war were Russia and Britain, America were a small player

Is that why britain destroyed the entire German navy, by the end of the war all they had left was q few submarines, and they were being destroyed by britain in such large numbers that the life expectancy of a German u boat submariner was 9 months. The fact is britain won the battle of britain, that's all there is to it, we won, Germany lost, britain won the battle of the Atlantic, Germany lost, britain won in Africa, Germany lost, and britain did most of the fighting and liberated by far the most towns and cities after d day, britain captured and deciphered the enigma codes, britain carpet bombed the German cities. By far the biggest victors and contributers were britain and Russia, America were minor players

No one swallowing the bait, Packy.

Had not been for the USA, what was left of the British Empire would have been in a backwater third world country like India and you'd be serving them G&T's and who know what else when it got dark.

Battleships don't get misplaced in two years, spooge-breath and I can't help but notice you can't refute the list I posted after three weeks.

Do notice the UK did not give the USA fifty battleships, the USA did not ask the UK to be rescued, the USA did run away from the Germans in 1939, the USA didn't mooch off the UK all during the war.

How 'bout that G&T, BOY.

Not according to Packy and Odoriferous Skanque and KowKow.
If the USA hadn't intervened, Hitler would have won, I am saying.
Even with the much larger (many millions) of lives lost by the Russians.
The UK, to the Germans... a speed bump.
Just saying.
Americans thinks that they won the worldwar2 by them self

No but we did drive the German Armor out of France and back into Germany. Before we defeated the Japanese Pacific fleet and destroyed it's ability to wage war. America supplied the umph , the world supplied the blood sweat and tears. We still have the umph that and the only fielded 5th generation air superiority fighters on the planet!

Those fighters are awesome, britain has ordered some to go on our new aircraft supercarriers, after we sold a lot of our harrier jets to anerica, just after we spent all that money refitting them. Have you seen the new Chinese jets, they are total copies of Americas f35, they are stealing your designs, either they are hacking systems to get them, or there are American traitors selling them the designs, probably a bit of both
