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.

We kicked the English's azzes.

And we were 13th colonies, and had a population of 2.5 million, and the colonists were paying the freight for Georgie's war.

Why they went to war to try to keep us.

Putting aside they hired Germans to do most of their fighting for them... just as they had Americans do their fighting in WWI and WWII.

You crawl further and further out on the limb, Packy.

Let me ask you this, Packy:

Are you thinking what you said (above) makes sense? Or witty?

I don't think you are ready to trade insults here- you don't have the chops.

We kicked our own arses.
You don't do very well on your own. You need help.
You just about managed Grenada.
You got your arses kicked by SE Asians on bicycles.
Oh dear.

I think it ended badly for you, I know which country I would rather live in and it isn't usa, just imagine how greater usa would be under the British

So celebrating the fourth of July isn't a big hit in England I hear.

Not to worry though , we proved everything is better without your approval consent or even recognition. I can imagine the little bit of help you blue bloods are when the USA summons you to the cause.
Can you imagine how being on the team and a part of the greatest nation on Earth and the pride you English can have taking part in Americas space exploration programs , as well as our leadership in the free world?

We are second to none , and never forget it.
America is the light of the free world.

I celebrate 4th July with my American friend that lives here. Any excuse. Do you get a good November 5th too? He does.

Actually I was saved by some English guys on the 4th once.

My boat broke down and I drifted into some English peoples yard.

They gave me a ride to my truck :).

They were also very nice people If it weren't for the English , I still be paddling around on the lake :) heheheh

He'll probably say that because Northern Ireland is part both of the UK and part of Ireland.
And since you did not specify either than either is correct.
Absolutely correct.
And since we are talking about people being banned for blood, Northern Ireland is specifically appropriate.
Good grief, you're stupid as well as obnoxious.

You brought up "Ireland", inappropriately, and now you're tapdancing - exactly as I predicted.

No, Packy.
Britain is an island, and England, Scotland, and Wales are part of that isle of Britain.
Northern IRELAND, Packy... is part of the island of IRELAND.
Do you need a map, Packy?
When you immigrated to England and swore allegiance to the Queen- didn't they require you take some kind of test?
Northern Ireland is part of Britain.

You know this.

So is the Isle of Man, and island just West of Wales.

Why do you insist on defending the indefensible?

HEY DICKWAD: Northern Ireland is part of Ireland, the people there are indeed Irish, and maybe because you are bent over the wrong way but Ireland is STILL WEST of England.

It's in ALL the maps.

Thanks for putting the lie right up front.

Where did you learn to read, I suggest you go ask for your money back

I wrote - Obama was “appointed” by the Electoral College

Since when did appointed become elected? Certainly not in English

I know more than you, Skanque, that's what is important.
And I keep being right all the time, I understand how frustrating that is.
Let's see: Obama was elected, and the PM is appointed.
Give us a shout when you understand the difference.
You think, drippydick?

You keep being right none of the time, you are just to pedantic to realise it

Electoral college??? Part of your political system, I know you have problems understanding the Westminster system, in your posts you make it obvious but I really thought you would understand your own federal system which denies you the right to vote for who will be appointed president

So you missed the game??

To Double Fine, rugby is a religion.

The only reson why I tolerate the zealots, is because when it comes to rugby, I am one myself!
