You wish to patronise because I will not accept the continual bad mouthing of patriots , of Americas purity and the hearts of it's people , enduring the belittlement and dishonarable babblings of a man who clearly presents himself as the enemy to me ,and my country as well as MY PEOPLE!.

Britain isn't a country.
The UK is a monarchy.
The USA is a democracy- a representative democracy.
The USA is a Republic. Maybe a few history lessons will help you there, barefooty.

re·pub·lic [ri-puhb-lik]
noun
1.
a state in which the supreme power rests in the body of citizens entitled to vote and is exercised by representatives chosen directly or indirectly by them.

In other words, chosen by vote of the people and/or an electoral college.

democracy (d&#618;&#712;m&#5 94;kr&#601;s&#618;)


1. government by the people or their elected representatives
2. a political or social unit governed ultimately by all its members
3. the practice or spirit of social equality
4. a social condition of classlessness and equality

The USA is definitely not this!

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.

You should at least read your own copy & pastes, NympHO.

Now was Obama elected, yes or no?

Compare to: was Queen Elizabeth elected, yes or no?

Compare to: is the U. KINGDOM prime minister APPOINTED, yes or no?

Compare to: is the U. KINGdom a monarchy,yes or no?

I find this irksome. Especially since there's been exactly one case of vCJD in the country since 1980.
Oh wait, is vCJD a blood born disease?

Oh wait, it is! So if someone were to infected with vCJD and from...say Ireland... the infection doesn't disappear from the blood when he goes through Customs.
Gosh: who in the hell would want to risk the nation's blood supply with your potentially lethal blood?

British beef = mad cow disease and hundreds of DEATHs.

Can you link consumption of US beef to one Swedish death?

The EU ban on US beef is a smokescreen to keep out competition: so says the international court.

"The worst years for cattle deaths from BSE in England, Scotland and Wales, was 1992 (36,680) and 1993 (34,370). But millions of other cows have been destroyed because they were too old to go into human or animal food."

Two years = more than 70,000.

Oh, no, you don't.

I distinctly said "Ireland".

And "over 30 years ago".

You responded with a bunch of UK statistical bumf, totally irrelevant to my point - which was, least you forget, dissatisfaction with the fact that some hysterical paper-pusher decided that I cannot donate blood.

Go ahead and try to squirm out of this one - you were wrong.

Ireland.

Are you dense?

vCJD is a deadly born disease. In the UK. In Ireland. Everywhere.

You being exposed to vCJD means the picky snits in the USA don't want to risk American blood with your potential deadly donations?
