I felt this was articulated well and now makes more sense to me.

America why you so crazy?

Is it to make it entertaining for the rest of us?

I loved his video on the royal family, as well as his video on continents.

South Americans LOSE THEIR MINDS whenever you speak about there being 7 continents.

I still say we should have a Republic.
Only dignified way for a democracy to conduct itself in my opinion, even if we have to pay slightly more taxes to make up the difference from the privy purse.

That combined with the secret city of london, is enough to convince me that I live in the most complicated nation on earth. Unless anyone has a more complicated suggestion.

But then you'd just have undignified, car salesman-type politicians at the very top. People like your PMs and our U.S. presidents. At least with your system the people at the very top have some dignity. Or if not, some nice clothes and jewels. Smile

It's not secret, it pre-dates England, let alone Britain as a fortress/trading ground and had a negotiated surrender with William the Conqueror, hence the basis of Common Law and the rule of the status quo. To remove the City you would have to go into the Magna Carta as that's the earliest document we can find today that shows Londonium existed. I think the City would technically be under Common Law allowed to secede from the UK through such a breach.

Just as I understand it, hence why noones poked it with a big political stick yet, it was part of the Hanseatic league back in the day.

All it would really change is from the UK being a Theocracy that imitates perfectly a constitutional monarchy, to an explicit liberal democracy. If we need to keep the Queen to pretend to be more dignified than we are, more fool the rest of the world I suppose. Also seems cruel to keep criticise Harry for living his life and expect him to do as he's told. Its cruel and undignified to control a family like that.

Also Charles..... just Charles.

Well the author is being a bit facetious in Congress 'blaming' the president. Its really the opposition party blaming the rival party with the President serving as his parties figurehead. The president is thus being treated as the lead representative of his party, not the sole and only culprit. Its just he will always be his parties most visible leader to focus blame.

Not really, we lose our minds when certain people refer to their SINGLE country as the whole continent, which is quite diff Lol

We keep raising the debt ceiling.

All of that unused space up there.

We should just put another floor in the debt house.

See, this is where you start splitting hairs. No one in the US thinks the US makes up the entire North American continent...at least no one who's not a complete and utter moron. Where do you hear this garbage? For some unknown reason, many people in South America have this idea that Americans have never heard of Canada and Mexico, much less South America, and those are the ones who completely lose their minds over the fact that North and South America are considered two separate continents. It's like this huge inferiority complex just because "America" isn't synonymous with either continent. Hence the term, "The Americas".

I've heard people say, "Hey, we're Americans too because we live in South America!" Well, 500 years ago maybe, but not anymore. You don't hear Canadians saying they're American because they live in North America.

By the same token, call a Russian, a Swiss or a Brit a European and watch the reaction.

I think back then USA was a politically neutral term between the 13 seceding colonies, the term for the sum of the colonies at the time was "Virginia", which was changed to the generic United States of XYZ. Other United States were for example, Belgium.

Witness the present polarisation of the word Europe.
