You may not like the process but then: you have no say in the head of state where you live whatsoever.

If we are going to play red herring, let's play red herring. Your desperation to avoid showing where you got the Macmillan quote from will not make up for the fact that you have still not answered the question.

Unless you are Barefoot, so it seems.

Case in point: claiming he got a quote from a non-Wikipedia source, then not saying where he got it from.

You can make a start by disproving my belief that you got the quote from Wikipedia. Tell me where you it from instead of showing where you -could- have got them from.

Let's look at this quote again:

You stupid moron: the "facebook" source is the Encyclopedic Britannica.

For people who speak English, that means your Facebook link is EB.

True or false?

And of course: I gave you FOUR sources (and there are more).
Congratulations on defeating a red herring. Are you now ready to actually address the question itself, like, actually telling me -where- you got the quote from instead of where you -could- of got it from?

Of course it means something. Since you have decided to abandon the question and go on a crusade for truth, we have to examine every claim meticulously even if they have nothing to do with the questions you were asked.

So:

"You stupid moron: the "facebook" source is the Encyclopedic Britannica."

True or false?

My "goalpost" here is to show you ONE other source.

And I showed you three... so far.

With the links.

Clearly: showing you fifty wouldn't be enough.
