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.

Now what is the difference between "there is no range of choices"

Class?
Is there NO difference?
Now you're being deliberately deceptive. You're not very good at it.

What you said, and what I quoted: "the monarch of the UK has far more power than the monarch of Sweden."

That's a clear statement that there is, in fact, a range.

Try harder.

Thanks for reestablishing yourself as the forum liar.

Pol Pot spent 15 years in a catholic boarding school learning catholic doctrine and good old christian hatred. Yes my ideas exactly he selectively forgot the good bits of the babble and took the bad bits of christian teaching to heart. Which has often happened throughout the history of the babble

You don't see that kind of hypocrisy from me; I don't have problems calling out people who on other topics might otherwise agree.
Are you saying that all the numerous times you have asked me if the UK is a monarch or not, with a question mark that it was not a real question. Jeezuz fooking christ on a crutch, your sloping shoulder copouts are hilarious, must be the syphilitic rotting of your brain
I donít ever remember seeing anyone claiming that the UK was not a monarchy. What I remember is you trying to start argument after argument.

We see all kinds of hypocrisy from you every day, we see repeated and discredited lies from you often too. All this means is you are do chicken sh|t yellow to admit you faults

My discussion was not on the U505 as you very well know because I deliberately included the U110 in my first post on the subject, but conveniently forget that.
And I showed you that the law you quoted and actions appertaining to that are two different things. Your hatred and misunderstanding of British life showed you to be a pedantic moron on that argument
Ok this is your non question Ė right, you hypocritical drippydick cuckold moron
Again you ignore democracy, the PM is approved by the queen ONLY after being elected as an MP by the public and elected as a party leader by the publicly elected members of his party. Again you fail to understand that the UK has been a democracy for longer than the US has existed
Donít remember you arguing this one with me.

Your opinion not born out by Hitlerís foray into Russia.
Wrong, I have shown you the numbers. 1937, the year you showed your figures for WAS NOT the start of WW2. FYI, WW2 started in 1939, the year which my figures dated from. Or perhaps you mean when the US decided to get off the fence in December 1941.
Itís skin flaking off the top of your head, the cause scratching your syphilitic scalp itch

I think many in the US would love it.

Get Neil deGrasse Tyson and Seth Shostak on as guests and it will go down very well in the usual coastal parts of America that get this sort of thing.

The problem is that once something starts doing well, the US TV industry will feel obliged to remake it and f**k the quality over as per usual.

If it wasn't Ince/Cox, I wouldn't watch it.

Endquote

Oh I get it now, that was from the christian point of view and therefore too good to comment on Ė right?

So itís fine by you that a guy who was raised as a christian and tipped for the priesthood caused embarrassment to atheists but not when that same gut who was raised in christian tradition causes embarrassment to christians

I guess itís just the same as modern day christian sloping there shoulders and denying the facts that Hitler was christian

I.E. christians are willing to lie and even deny historical fact for their god and that is typical christian thinking

It is rather obvious that Stalin embarrassed atheists- look at the response here- and whether or not Christians are embarrassed or not really doesn't have anything to do with what I said, particularly since Stalin wasn't a Christian after Stalin became Stalin.

Mindful of the bigots in the US who insist Obama is a Muslim because he spent time in a Muslim school.

I remind the readers of your insult: that my wife ran off with a BLACK man.

Not another man... but a BLACK man.

Not a tall man or a fat man or a man with a limp... but a BLACK man.

So we know what you are, Skanque.
