Only perfect practice makes perfect. If you practice doing it wrong, it doesn't help.

What would someone who calls themselves "Tinka" know about "corrupted Independent freaks"??? Europa? Europa is a moon circling Jupiter, Tinka. Children get way too many gifts. So many, in fact, they grow up thinking they should never stop getting them. A root cause of the Entitlement Generation as this era of perpetual whininess will someday be called.

I'll start with the acknowledgement that the UK is a monarchy.

The ballot I filled in last month was two pages double sided long and most positions had two if not up five or six people running for the various offices, and when I need to buy a chicken for dinner, I have a dozen different choices within a few minutes drive time, and if I don't feel like cooking, I have a choice of perhaps (easily) fifty restaurants.

I'm not ready to concede the US being communist just yet.

But first... learn what a loaded question means...
BEST OF LUCK!
I know what a loaded question is. I also know that when dishonest people are cornered they will resort to dishonest measures to justify dishonest claims.

Your question implies that our monarchy is above the status of relic. It is not. Our Queen's duty is to wave, smile and visit hospitals while all the political decisions are made by democratically-elected MPS at the Commons.

If my stance was as outdated and trivial as yours, then I would frankly save face rather than resort to loaded questions and ad homs to defend it.

Clearly: you don't.

You are thinking that all yes or no questions are 'loaded'.

Clearly, you are thinking that just because you cannot respond without looking to be a liar or an idiot must be "loaded".

The thing is, SuperFag... you are both.

An idiot, and as I proved: a liar.

Is the United KING_dom a monarchy?

Yes... of course.

Can you respond to the question? Gosh... not without looking the fool.

Whose fault is that, SuperFag?

The question "There are one hundred pennies in a dollar, yes or no?" has no implications.

There are one hundred pennies in a dollar, I can announce in full voice.

Is the United KING_dom a monarchy, yes or no?

Nothing.

Does "there are one hundred pennies in a dollar, yes or no?" imply anything?

As we both know: The United KING_dom is a monarchy,

And you are stuck trying to not respond.
