Funny how SuperFAG can insist no one denies that the UK is a monarchy in one breath but he says this in another:
The quote you posted showing this "contradiction" was my statement that nobody has denied that Britain has a monarchy. Not is.

Why, Barefoot, are you still dishonestly trying to conflate has and is?

By your line of argument, making the statement "my neighbour has a car" is exactly like saying "my neighbour is a car".

And I have demonstrated this to be a complete and utter lie. You omitted the paragraph that followed the most recent statement you kept quoting that specifically outlined where the point of contention was. You quote-mined me.

And we are all amused as you try to explain how you can say that no one denies the Britain is a monarchy in one breath and then you yourself deny it in another.
The quote said that nobody denies that Britain -has- a monarchy. You, in your desperation, are pretending that it said is.

I see you no longer post that quote anymore. That is very telling.

Also:

The world still awaits for the quote where I agreed to a bet.

The world is also waiting for you to define democracy...

... and explain why things within an umbrella term are the same...

... and why things can only be defined by one word...

... and what the Weimar Republic was if it was not a democracy...

... and why you cannot admit that universities do indeed give out politics degrees...

... and why for a supposedly powerful monarchy, Parliament has not had a bill refused by the royals in over 300 years...

... and why a Constitutional monarchy "is a monarchy", but absolute and electives are "kinds"...

... and why a Constitutional monarchy requires one physical Constitution to be defined as such...

... and why Sweden's name makes it a monarchy, but North Korea and China's names do not make them democratic republics...

... and why "is" and "has" mean the same...

... and why, quite simply, everybody and everything else - academia, history, reality - simply ridicules your inane argument about Britain not being a democracy.

For all your talk of making me dance... why do you keep dancing from this ever-growing list of arguments and contradictions that you have left in your wake and hoped against hope that I would forget?

You have continued to deny it but then I have the EXACT quotes and you flop on the floor like the limped-wristed Scottish fairy you are, no one thinks you are going to admit you were wrong even after it is crammed up your colon so far you can see it when you brush your teeth- as rare an occasion that that is.

Do "has" and "is" mean the same? Yes or no?

I applied Barefoot's logic in analogy. His response:
barefoot2626 wrote:
<quoted text>WAH WAHHHHHH! Is-is!
In other words, Barefoot cannot admit that by arguing that has and is mean the same, my neighbour both owns, and is, a car.

Hoisted by your own petard once more.

"...denies that Britain has a monarchy".

Has.

"If Britain is a monarchy...".

Is.

Two completely different statements. One massive lie - your lie.

Do tell us again how by your argument, my neighbour both has, and is, a car.

Only if you believe that has and is mean the same have you caught me in a lie.

Unfortunately for you, owning a car does not make the owner him/herself a car. Thus, unfortunately for you, there is no contradiction between accepting that Britain "has" a monarchy yet disputing that it "is" one.

You are continuing to deny that your two quotes are stating completely different things. You think that possessing something (car) in turns transforms the possessor (owner) into the possessed (car).

You do not dare attempt to refute this analogy because you know that it is true. You are a dishonest, cowardly little man(child).

Strawmen, contrary to what you believe, are not "things I can call other people's arguments to avoid actually refuting them".

You contradicted yourself within one page. That is not a strawman, it is a hilarious fact!

I think Barefoot is just trying to make fun of people. Nobody is really as slow as Barefoot's pretending to be.

He appears to pick-up on any phrase or momentary remark that is not inherently valid both in and out of context; or else he simply writes any coherent sentence a contributor will naturally find objectionable as it 'misses the point', or something. I think it's his perverted way of amusing himself.

He might be intentionally causing understandable irritation to see if anyone notices what he's doing. That is possibly what he's up to here. Alternatively, he may just have a serious character flaw and be mentally deficient. Neither troll or POE quite describe what he does (which is to induce circular, unsatisfactory and repetitious exchanges). I suspect he wishes to see how long people will go in circles so that he can point to their helpfulness and accuse them of stupidity.(Alternatively, he could just be a stupid git!:-)

Gosh, I'm not the one that continues to deny the UK is a monarchy, than says that no one pretends no one denies that the UK is a monarchy, and then is shown EXACTLY a quote where he said that there is no monarchy, and then posts dozens of more comments trying to escape from that fact, that Barefoot2626 AGAIN pulled down his pants and spanked him thoroughly.

I think you need to dig up a few more aliases, maybe you can shout me down, eh?
