Shame I was too young to enjoy that subsidy.

Next you'll be saying the Vietnamese still owe you for their pushbikes!

You are a silly little old man.

The UK did not come close to covering the actual costs- it was ten cents on the dollar.
And no, it wasn't free: 104,000 Americans died fighting in the European war.

You accept Boeing also took bail outs, right?

If you don't, you're a cu*t. You are anyway, btw.

I don't pretend NASA or the USAF made a profit or that they don't and haven't received tax funds and think that state sponsorship for every passenger did not need to be considered when uttering the word "profit".

and anyone who thinks America won WWII ETO is woefully ignorant of actual history and completely dismisses Russia's contribution to destroying Germany

I'm not the one insisting the UK is a democracy, HOney.
HOboy! Neither is any one else. You're the only one who has said that. You've then argued with yourself to the point where you believe there are actually others insisting that the UK is not a monarchy.

I am responsible for what I actually say, I'm not the jingoist who is insisting the English army had just won the war with negligible help from anyone else.

Of course, when considering the 'Russian' contribution to WWII, we should always remember they were Hitler's allies at the beginning of the war.

Of course it is stupid, you keep asking and you keep getting told that the UK is a monarchy every single time you ask. My guess is that you have found something you are correct about and so you have become fixated on a good thing.
Not only does he become fixated on the few correct things he posts, but he lives in the past. He argues about things that happened 75 years ago and can't let go of them.

The reason he can't talk about things in today's world is that he is here 24/7 posting about the past.

Admit?
Is the UK a monarchy, yes or no?
My position has been yes, always.
No buts...

Have you stopped raping children, yes or no?

We can play with loaded questions all day. You know full well how your question is loaded, and that is why you ran away like a little wuss last week hoping I would disappear if you ignored my explanation.

Why do you say "actions speak louder than words" in another thread then effectively demand that we take words more literally than actions in this one? Can you explain this?

Hey, don't forget, we're a christian theocracy too.

Albeit one where nearly no one goes to church and Tony Blair was made to drop god references from his speeches in order to look less mental.

Not the one who keeps bringing up the past, NymHO, and not the one who insists the Brits invented the airplane, not the one who claims the UK is a democracy, not the one who insists the English army had just won the war.

No one is making you stalk me here, HOney.

I cannot help you don't know what a loaded question is, SuperFag.

I've already responded to the question: Is the UK a monarchy, yes or no?

Brilliant one!
How about that there rugby match?
I don't think Scotland didn't put enough tackles in and neither did they make it count when they had their share of the play.

Then there was that giveaway try.

I'm great. My son is still learning to cope and his sense of humor makes it easier. He still has some surgeries to go but he's doing better than most in his situation. Thanks for asking.

To each and every one of you on this thread:

Happy Thanksgiving. Take care while you're driving to Grandma's house or wherever you go. Enjoy your day, your family and your friends.

This does not exclude anyone. Some things are just for 'Happy'.
