Who cares what old virgins in funny costumes say? I mean really, what sage advice could one possibly get from an old virgin in a funny outfit? It's just shocking that so many still listen to the sophistries of "Jesus's voice" on earth. Ridiculous.

The British grammar police who patrol bore me pedantically should have a listen to this. Thank you Stephen Fry.

We Americans have had a great and positive influence on the English language, developing it in such a way that teleologically made it our own. In terms population, America has more people and so obviously, our influence will be continue to be greater as the language continues to evolve. British people always come off as pedantic and snobbish whenever they try to "correct" grammatical differences that develop naturally across cultures and societies. Here is the thing: you might think that you are correct; however, the other person thinks that you are too! In fact, many of the perceived "errors" that you see are merely stylistic or cultural differences. Furthermore, it turns out that it is you (Britons) who are in the minority, and, when it comes to the evolution of language, you can kick and scream as much as you'd like but you will never "win" (whatever that would mean.)

Republican presidential debate, the highlights

The light bulb freedom of choice act is real: republicans think that the government deciding which bulb you can buy is an example of draconian Marxism! When in actuality it is about saving energy by replacing incandescent bulbs with more efficient ones. If you thought Bush was nuts, heaven help us if any of these clowns get elected (including Rick Perry).

You don't worry about deficit reduction during a recession! This is a political ploy by the Republicans: it has nothing to do with economics; it has everything to do with ideology. If anything the deficit should be increased. the government needs a larger stimulus (the first one was too small) to replace private capital and stimulate the economy. Deficit reduction is a problem, blown out of all proportion, that should be dealt with during financial good times; dealing with it now furthers the recession needlessly.

I agree with you Doe. If more of your countrymen were proud of where they are from, and if they weren't taught that love of country is wrong, then I doubt we'd see such mindless acts. I came on here to have the last laugh, sick of all of the pathetic anti-american comments; if more englishmen were like you, I wouldn't need to.

Odd then that the game of Football, as Americans call it, was created before the modern advertising bubble. Another dull rant from another boring brit who failed to make it in the U.S., and is thus bitter. Oh, and the Jazz that he positively compares to soccer is a purely American invention; that is, where everyone has to think for themselves and be creative!

I completely disagree. Religion is typically not subjective. It is usually organized: typically has doctrine and texts, some form of hierarchical structure, and it almost always makes claims about the universe. And even if it were subjective you would be able to argue against it, unless the person is unwilling and/or unable to disclose their beliefs. Apologetics for religion reaches a new low: the argument from inferiority!

Sounds like the words of a religious person who is tired of being on the losing end of an argument. I would be with you but religious people rarely keep their opinions and beliefs as 'personal and private inner self' ones. Unfortunately, the religious usually make claims about the universe and then expect the rest of us to abide by their own special 'god-given' rules. So yeah, as soon as religious people en masse keep their views 'outside the realm of others' then I will definitely stop arguing with them.
