I cannot help that you are so dense you can only respond with dumbphuquery.

You were certainly potentially exposed to vCJD.

Not only should your blood be banned from the blood supply, you should be branded square in the forehead warning others, lest they be exposed.

I am not wrong. People die from vCJD. I don't want your potentially tainted blood in my country.

Logic states that the person running away is the one who does not know what loaded questions are.

You are running away.

Therefore, Barefoot does not know what loaded questions are.

Prove me wrong and attack the content instead of the character, manchild.

That's funny. When running away you are fleeing from your opponent; not, you know, standing your ground, tackling head-on.

Do we need to add the phrase "slapping the snot" into "terms Barefoot does not understand" or, like loaded questions, do you have your own bizarre definition?

Why do you keep running away, Barefoot?

Republic and democracy are not mutually elusive, HOney.
Democracy and monarchy, on the other hand, are.
You aren't in the position to give anyone English language.
The sun rises in the east and I am responsible for what I say, not for the 'quotes' that you create.
A Republic is governed by a charter (Constitution) while a Democracy has no charter and is run directly by its citizens.

They are mutually exclusive, though both have commonalities and there are several types of each. But this is a Republic. You said it was a Democracy. You were wrong. It's as easy as that.

You're not in the position to give history lessons, but you try.

'The United States of America (commonly called the United States, the U.S., the USA, America, and the States) is a federal constitutional republic consisting of fifty states and a federal district.'

Note that it says 'constitutional republic'. You were wrong, barefooty. For the umpteenth time. No one expects you to get your head out of your a** to admit it, though.

The US is a federal constitutional republic. It is also a representative democracy. I posted a long long long long time ago, do pay attention, and p.s.: democracy and republic are not mutually exclusive.

Keep up your GED classes.

Much sure to take English refresher.

Is the UK a monarchy, yes or no?

Two years = more than 70,000.
