And by the way...while I'm at it....

For me, the very definition of hypocrisy comes into play when someone
demands of others a level of perfection they do not require of
themselves.

If you're going to twig me as noted below --

-- then you have to be able to take the position that *you* don't do
this sort of thing, because if you do, then you do not have the moral
high ground or authority with which to complain.

Just a few minutes of googling turned up the very same kind of
prejudicial comments you've made about Americans...only far, far worse
than anything I said.

In addition to agreeing that Americans are "really stupid," and
offering that all Americans are "revisionist historians," you've said:

"ALL Americans worship flags of traitor ancestors - from a historical
English perspective."

Of the election, you said "How 100 million Americans can be so dumb as
to elect a twat like him in the first place, let alone twice in a row
is so far beyond my
understanding as to be in the next galaxy. Rampant self-interest. I
guess it's not too difficult to understand it really, huh?"

"Europeans have a much better and wider view of the world." Also a
very sweeping statement about an entire population.

And my favorite exchange from you:

">That makes americans 20% smarter than 1 billion fucking moron muslims
>around the fucking moron muslim world, fucking rag head cunts.

But apparently considerably less literate."

So you have dismissed and dissed Americans as dumb, self-interested,
illiterate, worshipping flags of traitor ancestors, agreed that we are
"really stupid"...and you have the *gall* to come here and give me a
hard time about saying Britain has a rampant class system?

The citations follow.

One hopes your apology would also follow.

I bow to your superior knowledge on the matter. (Though it can't be
*that* superior if you're living "over there" and not over here...)

couldn't cope with the competition over here so went over there where
it's a lot easier...)

No way of proving it, of course, but I'd bet that for most of the last
decade and a half, that poor woman has been wishing fervently to die.

It is cruelty in the extreme to keep her in her vegetative state with
no hope whatsoever (beyond bead-rattling mystics chanting
incantations, or whatever passes for religion over there in the US) of
recovery.

She, Nature and "God" have decided she's not to live. It's only the
arrogance of the politicos and, in the past, the medics and her
misguided family that decided otherwise. Arrogant pricks.

And in such a simple way too:

"George, everything's running just fine, why don't you take a month or
two and have a nice holiday in Crawford".

(Packing suitcase) "You sure, guys? Gee, that's good of you"

How 100 million Americans can be so dumb as to elect a twat like him
in the first place, let alone twice in a row is so far beyond my
understanding as to be in the next galaxy.

Rampant self-interest.

I guess it's not too difficult to understand it really, huh?

Paul.

Maybe not in America. Europeans have a much better and wider view of
the world. I'd bet most Europeans are very aware of those as well.

I know I am.

And choose to deliberately pretend that their own genocide of Native
Americans didn't happen.

Revisionist historians - don't you love 'em?

Agreed. It was one depressing night's television watching, I must

There is no "right" to secession. It always has to be fought for
either physically or politically.

ALL Americans worship flags of traitor ancestors - from a historical
English perspective.

You need to take a wider view on things like this.
