I don't think that Barefoot2626 is trying to argue anything sensible. Perhaps he just comes here so that he can say to his cronies "I give those stupid atheists hell"? His aim appears merely to cause irritation and I suspect that says far more about his personality than it says about any other subject.(Alternatively, he might be as slow as he sounds :-)

Let's see, putting your poor grammar aside: the United Kingdom is a monarchy, that is a statement of fact, not an opinion, and I have repeated that fact easily several hundreds of times yet the NotBots continue to argue that I am wrong.

Clearly: Barefoot2626 not arguing with sensible people.

As long as I am ahead of you, honey.

No.

You should immerse yourself in the English language and have someone explain to you why the two things do not mean the same thing.

And that is why you can't find me saying what you try to attribute to me.

Sweden is a constitutional monarchy with a parliamentary democracy form of government and a highly developed economy.

The parliament of the United Kingdom that meets in the Palace of Westminster has two houses; an elected House of Commons and an appointed House of Lords. All bills passed are given Royal Assent before becoming law.

Constitutional monarchy = monarchy.

One clue to whether or not a country is a monarchy is: the have "kingdom" in their name.

The terms republic and democracy are not mutually exclusive, Meatball.

Monarchy and democracy are.

Do let me know when you pass your ESL class.

It's a waste of time explaining the same thing to you when the little light isn't on.

Of course you have to because you claimed you did not get the quote from Wikipedia. I was asking where you got it from.

Showing me where you "could" have got it from is like claiming you did not kill a person because you "could" have been somewhere else rather than the scene of the crime at the time of the murder. It does not answer anything.

Between you and me, but resorting to the internet tough guy routine to compensate for a lack of argument does not bode well for you.

A bet that exists only in your head. To win the "bet" you simply have to say where you got the quote from.

Where was it from, my manchild friend? Are you ready to become mentally older as well as physically?
