You do that.

Make sure you include the little number at the end, as I have done, which links to the original source.

But do it after you declare that you will stop posting after I give you ONE citation.

Have you not remotely paid attention to goings on in Britain in the past few years?
Freedom of speech:
The US has it.
The UK does not.

You can go through the list of countries that do not have freedom of speech- let's say the list is one hundred countries long.

The UK does not have a guaranteed freedom of speech.

Examples: already given.

No such thing: "degree in politics".
sTILL WAITING: ONE SOURCE, YOU DON'T POST HERE?
Done so twice. You cannot say you have not seen them as you have cherry-picked portions from the posts that they were linked in.

So, either:

1) Topix mysteriously edits my posts;

2) You do not read the whole content of my posts;

3) You are lying.

I am going for option 3). Furthermore, there is nothing, whatsoever, stopping you from loading up Google and typing "MRes political research" or "undergraduate politics degree".

You are lying, Barefoot, and trying to redefine reality to fit it.

Wait...

One cite / you stop posting.
We have established that you have no clue what the fallacy means.

You are pretending that politics degrees do not exist - fact.

Funny: no matter how many times I remind you that you are a m/f c/s liar and you paraphrase instead of quoting, and I demand you provide the quote:

You paraphrase.

You are a m/f c/s liar.
We all know what you posted, manchild. Until you finally get round to acknowledging the university links that prove your claims about politics degrees wrong, there is no point going on yet another wild goose chase when you will only pretend that you did not read the post.

You made the claim, so you will back it up. That is what adults do.

"Rock Hill, S.C. teacher Sharon Aceta was placed on leave Friday after she posted a sarcastic and offensive statement about President Barack Obama on Facebook.

Aceta, who eighth grade math at Rawlinson Road Middle School, was evidently frustrated with Obama's reelection last Tuesday. According to WSOC-TV, the teacher wrote on Facebook:

"Congrats Obama. As one of my students sang down the hallway,'We get to keep our fooood stamps'...which I pay for because they can't budget their money...and really, neither can you."
School spokesperson Elaine Baker told WSOC that while there have been a number of complaints about the post and that the teacher violated the district's social media policy, Aceta likely will not face disciplinary action beyond the one-day suspension.

Aceta has since apologized and deleted the status.

The incident in South Carolina is one of a number involving teachers' Facebook statuses following the election. A Columbus, Ohio teacher came under fire last week for taking to the social networking site to express disappointment in the election results, posting:

"Congrats to those dependent on government, homosexuals, potheads, JAY-Z fans, non Christians, non taxpayers, illegals, communists, Muslims, planned murder clinics, enemies of America, Satan You WON!"
District officials said they were investigating the case.

Similar problems with social media have affected communities across the country. In July, a Bradenton, Fla. parent found a Facebook discussion among teachers of G.D. Rogers Garden Elementary School in which one educator calls a student the "evolutionary link between orangutans and humans." Another teacher responded that the comment made her "laugh out loud."

Last year, a first grade teacher at Paterson School 21 in Paterson, N.J., was suspended after writing on Facebook that she felt like a "warden," and referred to students as future criminals. The school board said, however, that officials cannot remove a teacher there for what is said on Facebook and can only act if it spills over into the classroom.

And just weeks earlier in Doylestown, Pa., Central Bucks East High School English teacher Natalie Munroe was suspended for blogging about her students and referring to them as "disengaged, lazy whiners."

Munroe was reinstated at the school because she had a "legal right to her job," but was later fired for poor performance.

At least 40 school districts nationwide have adopted social media policies. From New York City to Missouri, districts are beginning to discipline teachers for inappropriate Facebook activity. But some educators point out that social media can be a beneficial learning and teaching resource if used properly."

Your country is facing the same problem with posters on social media. What you say has serious consequences just as it can do here.

Furthermore, it is still pathetic that you think debate over offensive material on the internet is on a par with police states.

This is akin to asking "Is Britain a boat? Yes or no?"

I am not claiming that fish are mammals.

I am not claiming that mammals are fish.

What I am saying, manchild, is that you think everything -within- the umbrella terms are the same.

That you still need this explained to you for the fifth/sixth time shows your inability to understand very, very, very basic logic.
