    Actually, the UK has been buying and selling young black men from other continents legally for decades.... It's called Premier League Football.

    I wonder what other amendments they haven't gotten around to yet. Can women vote yet?

    It is comforting to know that we have states willing to show us our history by continuing to live in previous centuries.

    That's a constitutional question Bryn. It is constantly being dealt with.

    It's aggravating, every time I think I've got a handle on it something like this turns up and sets me back to square one :-(

    I'm not convinced about that.

    BTS gave angry answers, Acc thinks before he replies and that makes a huge difference.

    Only trouble is, it makes me stop and think before I answer him and that can do permanent harm to your pre-conceived ideas.

    Would you be surprised to learn most (almost all) Americans don't give a tinker's damn what happens in Britain? Or anyplace not us.
