I don't have to make up things that you say to prove my point.

You continue top make up things I did not say to wiggle out of the fact: you live in a monarchy.

You do not have the protection of a constitution.

The monarch can dismiss the Parliament.

The Church of England makes appointments to your Parliament.

You have absolutely no say over your head of state.

Your head of state is the head of your state religion.

No matter how hard you stomp your feet.

Today's motorcycle ride along the windswept majesty of Galveston's pristine beaches gave me an idea for a new product. "Biker Dipers" will be appearing soon on store shelves near you! If you would like to invest ... Let me know. I need backers!

Let's look at the hundred or so comments you have posted here.

COUGH.

Let's go down the list of things that you have refuted that I actually said:...

Um... right.

Nothing.

If it is important enough for you to make up things that I haven't said to try to win a point here... you must care.

According to Barefoot the year is 1531 and we are all still living in a feudal age where the monarchy and nobility are top of the tree and we, the peasants, must til the soil and pay homage to the church.

Now if you will excuse me, I have to string my lute and play in the royal court.

Fact of the matter: it's 2012 and if Queen Elizabeth wants to dissolve Parliament today after tea, that isn't a damn thing you can do about it.

She is: the head of state.

She is: UK.

You've been saying that for days yet you still hang responses on my posts, funny how that is.
Now. NOW Ė I do not care that you NOW say 15000, you DID SAY 7000 and I posted you the link to your own statement in which you said 7000.

If you canít get basic facts right how the hell are you supposed to convince people of your argument?

So you either lied then or you are lying now or both are lies, which is it?

Did some gardening.

Planted some portuculatas, a daisy or ten, broke up a bromelia into 6 plants and moved my one Protea.

Have someone explain to you how an internet forum works, Skanque. It isn't really the place for private conversations.
Hey butt breath, as I said you butted in, YOU, not me. You are free to butt in to any conversation you want but donít be surprised if what you say is shown to be rubbish.

I am enjoying myself here, particularly putting a pedantic ignoramus like you down so I welcome you stupidity but donít make the mistake in assuming we are all as stupid as you.

You canít just make crap up and clam thatís how it was, this is the internet and funnily enough there is a records of what you post on here.

You donít like that then tough, thatís how the internet works

Use your scroll button,$450 *M*illion typed above it. Billions, millions, trillions, do you want me to pick out your mistypes to, Skanque?
Do you remember saying it was TRIVIAL?
Liar, you wrote billions not millions. Your intention was to make it look more dramatic. It was not a mistype it was a deliberate falsification of figures to make yourself look better. Look at your keyboard, as a mistype it would have been villion, gillion, hillion, or nillion

Yes $450million (M I L L I O N) is peanuts compared to the trillions that the 2007 world crisis cost, many countries such a Greece and Spain are still struggling form the aftermath.$450 million is what, around a few minutes turnover for a company the size of Barclays.

Honey you are welcome to point out my misspelling any time you want. I will of course inform you that I am dyslexic and expect pedantic prats like you to jump on every error I make, Itís quite fun to see. However deliberate millions to billions is not dyslexia.

That's the problem when you decide to play contrarian. When you have no argument, all you can do is name-calling and repeat the same obsolete points without properly understanding their contexts in 21st century society.

This is 2012. Barefoot thinks we live in 1561.
