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.

Let me know when you pass the "what is a loaded question" test.
That depends on whose definition we are playing by. If you mean a conventional term for loaded question, then I have passed with flying colours. If you mean the "Barefoot loaded question test", then inevitably I am going to fail.

You cannot debate, and that is why you hide behind a flawed question. You know just as much as everyone else here that Britain is an average western democratic country.

Those that speak English.

The people who understand when I say the UK is a monarchy, they nod.

For example.

And when I say the Ireland is an island and to the west of England, they get annoyed because everyone knows that that is rather obvious.

Rather than rolling around on the floor kicking and crying and screaming Wales is to the west of England and that an explanation is needed for saying the UK is a monarchy.

Those who speak English, SuperFag.

Maybe you can have Packy help?

That is why I am able to say without reservation: Yes, the UK is a monarchy and why after a month you cannot admit that you are wrong.

Were not talking about great Britain, he clearly said the united kingdom of great Britain and northern Ireland, so you, barebutt, do not know the difference between Britain and UK

I know exactly what he said, Packy, just as I know exactly what you have said, and exactly what I say and have said.

The difference between you and me, Packy, and me and your NotBot friends is: I am able to QUOTE *exactly* and not have to insist on paraphrase what anyone meant to have said.

Ireland is west of England, yes or no, Packy.

"The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, commonly known as the United Kingdom (UK) or Britain, is a sovereign state located off the north-western coast of continental Europe. The country includes the island of Great Britain, the north-eastern part of the island of Ireland, and many smaller islands.

The United Kingdom is a unitary state governed under a constitutional monarchy and a parliamentary system, with its seat of government in the capital city of London. It is a country in its own right and consists of four constituent countries: England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. "

Yes?

So what?

Does the sun still rise in the east?

As I recall, I said that Ireland was west of England.

Do you need to look that up?

Is Northern Ireland part of Ireland?

You better check a map, HOney.

Here's one:

Silly bastard.

Your original claims were "Britain is an island" and "Northern Ireland is not British".

No-one is arguing, or has argued , that the geographical entity "Ireland" is anywhere other that West of England.

That's a (not very effective) strawman argument of your own devising. And you know it.

I am inclined to agree - Rugby and cricket, for instance.

Take an example - on a football pitch, the players do not respect the ref. They challenge him on penalty, free kick and yellow card decisions, sometimes pulling in all the players AND coaching staff.

In rugby, 30 much bigger men bash into each other, but when the ref's whistle blows, they immediately stop their crap and accept his decision. Same with cricket - higher quality sportsmen.

BTW, you are doing a fantastic job of tearing India apart!

Same happened to me. bsfoot was crapping on about Concorde. All I said was I got to fly on it free once and he called me a parasite. I don't bother with bsfoot now. It's just another religitard eating cycles.

I don't follow football but I think that red cards and penalties are too heavy handed. I think the petty nature of the modern game could, over time, be improved by 10 minute sin bins.

Dissent to the ref: sin bin
Bad behaviour: sin bin
Diving: sin bin

I might follow football again if I could look at most of the players without deriding their bad tempered petulance.

Cook's run out was odd, wasn't it? C'est la vie.

Great idea. I would take it a bit further: A citing commission, like we have in rugby. Let's say the attacking player takes a dive and gets away with it. I'd like to see him cited and banned for 3 or 4 games.

Also, slap the players with some real fines! I remember some South American star was fined about 10,000 Euros for some kind of misconduct. 10,000 Euros??? For a guy that earns 100,000 Euros a WEEK? That is like fining me the price of a bag of crisps.
