See that above post of mine? That's directed toward you, you fit the profile perfectly.

As for your quote above, grow up & put away the hysterics.

Sheesh.......there's an awful lot of butt hurt going on around here over someone who hasn't had a role in government in over twenty years.

Someone should see a doctor; I hear there are creams and suppositories for that.

So you have attended every funeral of every political figure you have ever liked that has passed on. Grow up buddy and tell me why a shooting victim is more worthy of the Obama's attention than Thatcher.

You can't be this stupid. Seriously...it should be impossible for someone to be as lame as you appear to be.

Chicago is in America. Britain is not. Why should we care about a dead ex prime minister of a foreign country more than one of our own citizens?

Get help.

Take your own advice lefty.
I know the topic bothers you so spare yourself all if this angst and ignore it. Try putting your fingers in your ears if it's a problem.

Nope.

But then again I'm not the one throwing a little baby hissy fit either.

LOL

Actually no. The Queen retains very real powers even if the convention is that she doesn't use them. The Queen is the ultimate guarantor of Britain's 'constitution'. Furthermore, by being 'above' politics, the Queen actually represents all British people and not just those who support one party or the other. That gives her tremendous moral authority in the nation. It would be a very brave prime minister that tried to take on the monarchy and one who would almost certainly lose.

But I do appreciate your comments. It is always nice to discuss with people that know absolutely nothing about the subject.

Then why doesn't Obama attend more funerals of shooting victims? Get a brain and quit defending the political punk.

Haha, dude I could care less about a funeral overseas & whether someone from our government attended it or not. You however have got your knickers in an odd twist over it. It's actually pretty funny.

Why would I put my fingers in my ear? I can't actually hear you screeching, I can just imagine it though. Poor thing.
