I'm sorry, I can't take seriously anyone using a Kommunist Kickball celebration as an avatar.

jj, there's really no reason to come in here, you know we're just going to bring up curling.

May not have originated in Canada, but it's definitely a Canada thing.

ETA: eh?

Curling is fun. There I said it.

Plus it has a much better beer culture than a sport that "used" to provide beer at third base.

Read Scalia's opinion in Heller sometime. It's the most tortuous post-hoc rationalization of an incorrect reading of history and plain grammar in Constitutional Law.

Re: Nationalism: Do You Actually Think America is Better Than Other Countries?

I read Heller. The day it was released.

We have a thread for this, but the 2nd Amendment, read from the common sense viewpoint of the common writing style of the late 18th century, clearly shows an individual right to protect the citizen FROM the State militia.

Go to the gun control debate, explain to us there how the word "People" means something completely different in the 1st, 4th and 9th Amendments than the 2nd.

Then when you finish that, you can push forward with the "comma" argument.

Re: Nationalism: Do You Actually Think America is Better Than Other Countries?

That's all wrong. I'll explain why (in the proper forum, of course) using examples drawn from conservative jurists like Michael McConnell. I know how conservatives hate hearing arguments from uncouth and unsophisticated liberals-- like John Paul Stevens.

Its not politically correct to say so, but Great Britain = England for all intents and purposes.

Yankland is a foreign country, perhaps we should discuss greatness in their indigenous language.....oh wait...........

Sun still does not set on the English Empire.

Also can get deep fried chocolate bars in our colony of scotland.

America can never be great purely on the basis of how yanks pronounce the word water buoy. It sounds like boy, not bo-ee. So colonial.

Given the perpetual cloudiness in the British Isles, it's probably more accurate to say the sun is never visible over the English "Empire"

English beer confirmed better than American beer. The vast majority of American craft beer is an overhopped unbalanced mess.

Don't even try to debate about beer. Amerikan beers are nut low.
