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.

Gosh, your problem is you conflate your delusions with reality.

There is no comparison between the elected office of the president of the United States and the appointment of the prime minsiter of the United KINGDOM.

We live in a democracy and elect our head of sate... and you live in a kingdom and you are not even a citizen.

You are a subject of the monarchy.

Bow down, SuperFag, she passes before you.

EU banned US and Canadian beef because it could not compete with the cost.
Hence: EU losing lawsuit.
Hence: trade sanctions.

Best of luck on your ESL classes.
It is easy to claim you make a profit when you don't have to pay full price for capital assets, i.e., the jets that you fly when you compete against airlines that do.
And easy to say you make a profit when you don't have to show your books.
Oh, look! Poor little barefooty is having another nervous breakdown over something that doesn't even affect his life and is over and long done with.

I've already reminded him of that but it doesn't seem to sink in.

Yes, the weather man still says 'sunrise at 6:59 am'. So what? If you're talking about anything other than that, sun appears is a more accurate statement.

If you'd stop stomping and clomping all over the place, you might find a subject that applies to today's world instead of the world during WWII.

Thanks for posting though- it says more about you then I need to say.
E.G.: when I prove Sweden is a monarchy and you say the sun doesn't rise...

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.
