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.

Stalin was an atheist. He reinstated the church because it helped Stalin.

As they say: keep your friends close. Keep your enemies closer.

Jeesus fooking christ on a crutch you drippydick cuckold moron, you use racially abusive wording to claim
Nope.

And you told everyone here that my 'wife' ran off with a *black* man.

Of course: your intent was clear.

Honey, you want to call me names then please do the decent thing
The names you call others reflect *your* bigotry, not mine.

You don't have to worry about me given your racist and misogynistic pejoratives a second thought, though, Skanque.

Yup, It was the first time that a response from me actually hurt you,
Oh Skanque: you are projecting.

I can guarantee I have given anything you have said a second thought.

Particularly things that have no basis on my reality here, e.g., my 'wife' running off with a black man (as you insist, which, as mentioned before, is a reflection on your prejudices rather than mine) not being married, or dripping penises... being a man, not caring though... obviously, you have had a lot of face time with wet dicks.

Again, saying more about you than me.

Actually I donít think it offensive, although I think itís hilarious that you should get so hot under the collar about it.
You keep insisting, sweetie, and I keep telling you men don't give a rat's ass about dripping penises.

They don't have to look at them.

And they don't roll them around in their mouths.

Eh, Skanque?

You keep bringing them up, I keep reminding you who has had the real life experience of keeping them clean.

Speaking for other men, I thank you for your work.

Stalin couldn't f**k people's lives up without the usual compliant believers.

No church = no dictatorship.

Oh drippydick, I do not have an ex, I have been married to the same wonderful man since 1995,
You also told us you weren't fat.

And I can't imagine anyone knowing you as well as we know you and not escaping, no matter how henpecked.

I'll go with my gut.

The citizens of the US vote but have no say on who will run for president, your point being what???
Americans have the vote and they have every say on who runs for the heads of the party and if they want they can run for POTUS themselves.

And have.

Are you going to tell us you have two degrees in "politics", too?

[QUOTE who="ChristineM"
Donít be jealous just because the US democratic political system is based in the British system
[/QUOTE]

The USA is a democracy.

The UK is a monarchy.

Anything else, dear?

PS: We have two houses in our Congress. We elect every single member and the houses are pretty much equal strength.

And we don't have a state church which appoints members to either house.

Or even to dog catcher...

When the US looked at the UK "system", we fixed the glaring mistakes.

It isn't much of a benchmark: start with "Do you elect the head of state, yes or no"?

It isn't.

Putting aside: you are the one using the term 'non democratic' and trying to foist it into something I have said.

Of course: like pretty much EVERY OTHER THING you have attributed to me, it is a quote that you invent.

Be my gust: show us the link.
