In America, atheists are still in the closet

Apr 11, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Spiked

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.

Before that, America wasn't free to keep slaves longer than Britain or enforce racial segregation.

India 236/6

They are in a spot of bother here. Get Dhoni, and you are into the tail.

If you can get them all out for under 300, you have got the game by the scruff of the neck

Looking good but still need to lose Dhoni then deliver on the batting before it's a done deal.

Plenty of time for either side to self destruct.

That is true.

Would not help your cause if you get them out for sub 300 and they skittle you out for 150.

That is why I love Test cricket - you need to be consistently good to win they game.

I like the shorter versions, ODI and T20, but they can be turned on a dime. Chris Gayle hits 27 off an over off you, and the whole complexion changes. Likewise, Dale Steyn take 3 wickets and suddenly, the momentum has shifted.

In Test cricket, the game does not turn on a dime. One over's brilliance alone would not win a match

Correct (as I would expect of you). When we rebranded our failing Olympic team a decade ago, it became "Team UK". Some NI athletes are concerned they are not represented by that name.

A question:

You know that the IOC are trying to get Rugby Sevens into the Olympics? After that, the IRB may move to get the fifteen-man code added as well.

Where will Ireland fall then? You and I both know that Ireland has a decent rugby team and can compete on their own.

Or will the Nations come together, to form a B&I Lions team, while Southern Ireland plays on their own?

I rather like the idea of seeing a Lions team compete at the Olympics...

T20's a bit of fun but ODI can depend too much on the toss. ODI is my least favourite flavour for the reason you gave below.

Not so easy for you when you are consistently wrong, eh, SKanque?
Here's an example to make it easier for you to understand the difference between 'elected' and 'appointed':
The president of the United states is ELECTED.
The prime minister of the United KINGdom is APPOINTED.
Itís easy to be pedantic when you IGNORE the evidence.

Was it the 14 amendment that takes away you right to vote for who will become president?

Electoral College!!!

Is the UK a monarchy, yes or no?- Ignored in the grounds that I have repeatedly and repeatedly and repeatedly and repeatedly and repeatedly and repeatedly and repeatedly and repeatedly given you the answer to this stupid, idiotically moronic question

Is Ireland west of England, yes or no?- As is Wales and Scotland is to the north. France is to the south, Belgium the Netherlands to the south east. East is Germany and Denmark,

What point are you trying (and failing) to make here?

Ok yes and less of the wacky backy will ease you cough.

I'm no expert but Ireland would have a team of their own.

England, Wales and Scotland and NI? Now that's tricky. We merged those football teams into Team UK for the home Olympics but a) we are sh!t because UK footballers are selfish wankers and b) we won't be doing that for 2016.

I'd certainly like to see separate England, Wales and Scotland teams for Olympic rugby.

Yes, Skanque, thanks for repeating the lie.
Keep repeating it.
OK

Electoral college??? Part of your political system, I know you have problems understanding

So you are saying that the Electoral College is a lie? That it does not exist?
Or are you saying that the electoral college does not appoint proposed president and vice presidnet?

And you do you accuse of lying?

No need to lie?

You helped, there is a major difference between doing it all by yourself and doing it in a team

What p|sses people off, particularly the other members of that team is when one section of that team lies by claiming they did it on their own.

Not only does it p|ss off the other people who were involved or whose relatives lost lives by being involved it does fookall to enhance the credibility of the US

Over here in America, Americans vote indirectly for POTUS.

You do understand the difference between direct and indirect?

And as I pointed your at least a dozen times- as many times as you have toes- the electoral college VOTES for the POTUS.

Votes.

Compared to... I don't know let me see... oh, over in the United KINGdom where the prime minister is appointed by the monarch.

One of us is right, and one of us is wrong.

So far, you have not been right.
