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.

Been that way for a long time, but he always chooses me to pour out his hatred on with whatever name he's using at the moment.

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.

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'.

Got in the air and stayed in the air with French and British government funding. If it were a commercial success, there'd be Concordes everywhere you see... 707s,737s, 757s, and 787s.

An old version of.... tennis, did you say?
So when I said MODERN tennis is British, just like soccer and golf, rugby, cricket, hockey, rounders, snooker, crouqet, and most other sports, as the very concept of modern sport was a British creation, and you said it was modern tennis is French, you were again wrong, again, again

Okay. Now I'm confused. So now you're saying the UK is NOT a monarchy?!?!? Do you have Multiple Personality Disorder? Is this Barefoot2625 or Barefoot2627 expressing himself? How many Barefoot's are there anyway? Thousands? Is 2626 like, your serial number or something? You know, technically speaking. I was kind of going for the "Constitutional Monarchy" thing, but now this ... your "NO", being capitalized and all, seems rather emphatic ... that is to say, unequivocal. You got to keep it simple for us Boobies. BTW are you comparing me to female mammary glands or the clumsy-on-ground-graceful-in-a ir seabird of the same name?

I think they're still having some software issues in their Fly-by-wire, if you know what I mean.

Go away, troll.

"United Airlines and US plane manufacturer Boeing have announced a "historic" order for 150 Boeing 737s Thursday in a deal worth up to $14.7bn (9.5bn).

The order was announced in Chicago, corporate home for both companies, and is a major victory for the US firm against arch-rival Airbus.

United has ordered 100 of the new Boeing 737 Max 9 planes and 50 Boeing 737-900ER aircraft and taken an undisclosed number of options for additional aircraft.

Boeing said the deal meant it had now received more than 10,000 orders overall for aircraft from the 737 family making it the "undisputed best-selling jetliner in the world".
