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.

You aren't British, Packy, and England was an imperial colonial country because they had the mindset they could take whatever they wanted until the native population resisted.

Americans threw them out 245 years ago.

Other countries only most recently because they were panzies.

And yet you're less democratic than the UK and 15 places behind Sweden. Have a think about how you approached others to make that come about.

I've absolutely no issue with Americans in general - quite the opposite.

However, there is an US poster called barefoot? that is so monumentally retarded that he can't understand that countries with legacy/figurehead Kings and Queens can still be just as democratic.

The post you picked up on is merely a response to such an abject dribbler.

Peace.

Nonsense.

I have a link that says there's a WWII bomber on the moon... posted from a British newspaper.

Just because it's on the internet it doesn't mean it's true.

Start off with this: the UK is a monarchy, not a democracy.

PS: If it was loaded, I would not be able to answer the question.
EG: is the UK a monarchy, yes or no?
I can respond "yes".
As can anyone else who knows what a monarchy is, or who isn't stuck with a lie... like you.

Your turn.
You are either incredibly dense or very dishonest. Despite your obvious immaturity I believe that you are not as dumb as you appear, and are deliberately trying to wriggle out of another hole you have dug yourself.

The penny question is simple because we can both agree about the values of numbers and simple addition. 1 + 1 = 2, 1 penny is worth 1 penny, 100 pennies in a dollar. These are assumptions we can agree with.

Your monarchy question, on the other hand, completely ignores the political context of 21st century Britain. By answering "yes", it gives people the false impression that the monarchy is a serious political player in our country when, despite your continual rehashing of ceremonial powers, they are not.

Literally, we live in a monarchy.

Realistically, we live in a parliamentary democracy.

That is why your question is loaded, that is why you ran away from my explanation.

Simpleton: a link that shows the UK is many more 'miles' behind the USA illustrates that it is easy to find a list on the internet that "proves' anything.

But most: garbage in, garbage out.

If the official name of the state- that would be the name chosen by the state itself- declares that it is a monarchy, it is a pretty safe bet to say the state is a monarchy.

Yes or no: A monarchy is a country ruled over by a monarch; a kingdom.

You keep making others responsible for the conclusions to which you jump.

Who is the head of state of the UK?

I see: if we take what I have said and examined closely what exactly I have said, what I have said is absolutely true.

So the answer to the question: Is the UK a monarchy, yes or no? can be answered with a firm YES.

Based... on what the words actually mean.

By answering 'yes', I am saying the supreme ruler of the UK is a monarch.

Does the UK monarchy have the power to dismiss the government, yes or no?

The UK is not ruled by a monarch.
The US is far less democratic than Sweden with its King.
