Maybe if you keep working at you, you can work your way up to a swede.
You might start with education and learning something about Sweden, though... such as Sweden is a monarchy, not a democracy.
so in your world sweden is non democratic.

You were asked, repeatedly, to show where you got the Macmillan quote from.

The question remains unanswered because you ran away with a red herring-turned-strawman.

Never agreed to. I know you hate when mature adults, like me, do not fall for your playground antics, but it is time for little Barefoot to be a big boy now and realise that he has some growing up to do.

HAHAHAHAHAHAH!
I forgot that everybody else must back up their claims, provide painstakingly accurate evidence and be 100 percent precise with everything they say unless they are Barefoot who does not have to do anything because... well... because he doesn't have to.

The "bet" I played was that you got the quote from Wikipedia. To refute that "bet" would require telling me where you got the quote from.

Showing me where you -could- have got the quote from does not answer the quest-

- oh I forgot, manchildren cannot answer questions.

manchild 207 up, 50 down
An adult male who still posesses psychological traits of a child. Traits include, but are not necessarily limited to:
- whining
- pettyness
- trying to pass the blame for their own underdeveloped judgement
- not "stepping up to the plate" when it's their role to.
- secretly still finds 3rd grade bathroom humor amusing.
- is able to connect with his children, but only as another child, not as a father.
- not to mention an overall insecurity in who he is as a man, from which similar traits sprout.

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.

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.

Constitutional monarchy = monarchy.

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