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.

Already cited.

If you really had a degree- even one- and had ever written a paper- clearly, you haven't- you would no you are not encumbered to continue to cite the same source.

It sure was. Congratulations on being correct for once!
So a democratically elected parliament does not a democracy make.

Putting aside: I don't give a sh!t if a monarchy has an elected parliament or not.

Putting aside: most of the UK Parliament is appointed.

How about looking at what the Lords - actual, physical people - do instead of simply stating what they can potentially do?
The UK parliament: most members are appointed (1), yes or no?

(1) appointed by the monarchy or inherited post by appointment.

Watch this: Yes.

We are well aware that you will happily latch onto anything if it suits your purposes, no matter how irrelevant or dated it is.
I like the way when you insist that you are correct and use absolutes, and then I get to break it off in your azz, and then you run away from it, and then scream that in social sciences that blah blah bllah de bo bob doodle and the path of the moon...

When it is truly a YES or NO response that is required.

Like when you told us Macmillan had the UNANIMOUS approval of his party...

Over here in the USA, UNANIMOUS means EVERYONE. If the Senate takes a vote, and it's 99-1 (as sometimes it is): it is NOT UNANIMOUS.

I noticed... you skipped over my question above.

When your "best" case is going back over 50 years to latch onto a case
Funny, when you insist that something NEVER happens and I say: here you go...

And then you say... well... it doesn't count because it happened over fifty years ago...

Putting aside it is another example of me pulling down your panties in front of everyone YET again... WHAT THAT MEANS IS: IT CAN HAPPEN THAT WAY AGAIN.

And- as we all can recall, we are back to: does the UK monarchy appoint the PM, yes or no?

Watch this: YES.

You hate the word democracy because it blows your argument out of the water; get over it, little boy.
The USA is a democracy, SuperFAG.

The UK is not. The UK is a monarchy.

Post the definition as many times as you like; I only have to look at the window to see one.

While when you look out the window... you see a monarchy.

The United States is a republic, not a democracy.

The most technical term, our country is a constitutionally limited representative democratic republic.

The federal republic (in the USA) is a kind of democracy.

The monarchy in the UK is a monarchy.

"The monarch of the UK is much more powerful than the monarch of Sweden."

That's a range of monarchic power, and a range of what's a "monarchy".

Wanna talk about "Absolute Monarchies"? There still are a few.

You're out of your league, you absolutist infant.
