In other words: you can never quote me, you have to create a straw man.

"Slavery" and "involuntary servitude" are not interchangeable.

Not in the English language.

Particularly when used in the same sentence to define two things.

Though ignorant dolts creating straw men may try.

MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

It makes no difference, wetpants.

Whether you treat them individually or as one..

According to your constitution "Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude are legal"

"except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted"

In other words, for some people who fall foul of the law, slavery and involuntary servitude are still legal in America.

Of course it does, Spoogebreath.

No one here is expecting you to say you were wrong, even after it's been lodged up your bum.

Gosh... funny how you have to break up one sentence into two parts to try to explain something you obviously have wrong.

Try again:
" Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction."

What this means, Kowkow, in English (not your strong point) is there are TWO conditions being addresses,(one) slavery and (two) involuntary servitude.

I'd suggest you get help from the forum but it seems the majority don't know what "monarchy" means either, even after the definition has be posted many dozens of times.

he thinks every other website and every english dictionary must be wrong.

he doesn't like to be remind that the official name of the swedish state is:
Kingdom of Sweden

he keeps forgetting I've already quoted this:

"The Swedish monarchy

Sweden is a constitutional monarchy. The Swedish head of state since 1973, King Carl XVI Gustaf, exercises no political power and does not participate in political life. He is the representative of the country as a whole, and in that capacity performs mainly ceremonial duties and functions. Among his duties the monarch chairs meetings of the Advisory Council on Foreign Affairs. The king is supported in his duties by Queen Silvia and their three children, Crown Princess Victoria, Prince Carl Philip and Princess Madeleine. Queen Silvia was born in Germany to the German-Brazilian Sommerlath family. "

he doesn't like to be reminded it comes from:

I am responsible for what I say, Kowkow.

You are responsible for what you say until someone proves you wrong at which point you are never serious, then you are kidding.

Funny how that is...

Absolutely

You are indeed responsible for what you say.

Like the time you said that a measure of your nation's secularism is what happens out there on the ground.

I am also responsible for what I say and I accept full responsibility for winding you up.
