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.

during the american war of independence, britain waa fighting several different wars including the huge and far more important napoleonic wars against france and many other countries, most of europe, which we of course won, but even thoe britain was fighting all these other and more important wars and had to travel accross the atlantic to fight you, you still alnost lost, it was only the french that stopped britain from crushing you, so yes, you need to thank the french for your independence, when it was britain fighting america we all saw what happenrd, britain kixked americas butts and forced you into the biggest retreat in americas history, then we marched into your capitol city, unapossed, and burned down yoyr white house, you didnt even try to defend your caitol city, disgusting cowardice, then we blockaded your country and destroyed your economy, forcing you to have to come begging and groveling to britain to ask if you could use our currenxy, because the dollar was worthless, yes when its uk vs usa, the uk wins, overwhelmingly

You are a liar, Packy.

But then we knew that already.

A c/s, m/f liar.

I guess it's part of your heritage.

BTW: The total number of Canadian troops was under 620,000. The US had 4 million 335 thousand.

"you dont come here to make friends", then what the hell do you come here for, is your personal life so empty and devoid of friends that youve forgotten how to communicate with people like a normal person, why dont you get off topix for more than five minutes, put on your diaper so you can go outside, and try to make some real friends like a normal person, the fact that even online everyone hates you, is a shocking indictment of your personality disorder
OCD, and other disorders such as self-loathing, anti-scholasticism.

then we marched into your capitol city, unapossed, and burned down yoyr white house,
In 1814 we took a little trip
Along with Colonel Jackson down the mighty Mississip.
We took a little bacon and we took a little beans
And we caught the bloody British in the town of New Orleans.

[Chorus:]
We fired our guns and the British kept a'comin.
There wasn't nigh as many as there was a while ago.
We fired once more and they began to runnin' on
Down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico.

We looked down the river and we see'd the British come.
And there must have been a hundred of'em beatin' on the drum.
They stepped so high and they made the bugles ring.
We stood by our cotton bales and didn't say a thing.

[Chorus]

Old Hickory said we could take 'em by surprise
If we didn't fire our muskets 'til we looked 'em in the eye
We held our fire 'til we see'd their faces well.
Then we opened up with squirrel guns and really gave 'em ... well

[Chorus]

Yeah, they ran through the briars and they ran through the brambles
And they ran through the bushes where a rabbit couldn't go.
They ran so fast that the hounds couldn't catch 'em
Down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico.**

We fired our cannon 'til the barrel melted down.
So we grabbed an alligator and we fought another round.
We filled his head with cannon balls, and powdered his behind
And when we touched the powder off, the gator lost his mind.

[Chorus]

Yeah, they ran through the briars and they ran through the brambles
And they ran through the bushes where a rabbit couldn't go.
They ran so fast that the hounds couldn't catch 'em
Down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico.**

Packy: the individual battles don't matter so much. The War of 1812 was a draw, and the British didn't stop our ships on the high seas again.

PS: Remind us again what year it was when the UK allow India to have its independence?

Yup. Right where I left it - I just checked.

You're the only one here ever suggested otherwise.

Individual battles clearly matter to you since you're singing a song about one.

What you should have said is that the individual battles don't matter to us - you won't find many (if any) songs about our victories on your soil in the War of 1812. Why? Because nobody over here was really interested.

You won't even find songs about the Battle of Bladensburg which has been named by eminent historian Daniel Walker Howe as "the greatest disgrace ever dealt to American arms” and "the most humiliating episode in American history". Despite our victory in the heart of America and subsequent burning of your Capitol, we just didn't care - it was really no big deal.

The British didn't stop your ships on the high seas again?

Come on, barfy - you're being deliberately disingenuous and you know it. As a statement, it's correct, but I can't help notice your failure to explain WHY the British never stopped American ships again.

Don't worry - I'll give the reason why the British ceased stopping your ships and impressing your sailors:

It was because we'd beaten Napoleon and won the war in Europe (which was what really mattered) so we had no need to continue our blockade of France. With no more blockade in place there was no need to stop American ships that tried to break the blockade.

It smacks of desperation when you try and claim credit for something you never actually did.

Anyway, it's nice to see you admitting it was a draw instead of the victory that so many of your countrymen claim it was.

Is that all you've got, an old folk sing written by American soldiers while they were running away crying, hahaha, Britain kicked your butts, and there is not a historian alive that would say otherwise, we achieved all if our objectives, you didn't achieve any of yours, we won, you lost, face facts, Canada is free, that is that, the war was a total humiliation for America and a massive victory for Britain, but for Britain it was only a small war, along with all the other wars we win, one of many

I see Barefoot has run away, again, from my post, again.

I'll post it again:

"Speaking of lying, why do you keep hiding behind a deceptive question? You do know that if our government literally was nothing but a monarchy, then Parliament would not exist, right?"

For all your talk of Britain being strictly a monarchy, Barefoot...

... why does Parliament exist, exactly? If our monarchy is our government, then what is the purpose of Parliament?

Fat people like to say they are "full sized" or "big boned" and I am sure the subjects of the monarchy of the United KING_dom like to call themselves citizens.
