Or you could just not become a citizen. Au revoir.

My 'Viking Hunter' High Adventure Alternate History Series is FREE, ALL 3 volumes, at most ebook retailers including Ibooks, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, and more.

In Vol 2 the weapons come out in a winner take all war on two fronts.

Vol 3 opens with the rigged murder trial of the villain in a Viking Court under Viking law to set the stage for the hero's own murder trial.

Well said.

Nothing like trying to get citizenship and making demands at the same time.

Or the U.S. could respect the separation between Church and State and remove the reference to God from the oath of citizenship.

If its not such a big deal, then lets change it to Allah in the oath.


Glad to see you can find the quote button.



But you'd be better served by having read it instead of just quoting it.

Suppose it serves me right. For feeding a troll.

You didn't have anything to say that didn't boil down to a desire to have your particular religion made federal law.  Trolling a religious bigot is fine with me.

With over 42,000 posts here you've had plenty of opportunity to understand Original Intent and you persist in dropping one liners that completely ignore it.

I could continue to explain it to you but as you've already demonstrated, amply, you either Can't read it, or can't condescend to read it.

It's gotta be tough for you, I mean, with the Trump/Putin Bromance backfiring and now the kerosene on the torches the Roy Moore Lynch Mob is carrying turning out to be water, . . .

And calling me a Religious Bigot, . . . that's the icing on the cake after I gave the Never Trump Bible Thumpers Hell for citing the Commandments of the The Lord, (as written down and rewritten by I don't know How many Interpreters over the Millennia) as their justification for going 3rd Party or sitting out the election, Because, the ME, MYSELF, and I of their Immortal Soul meant more to their Lofty Moralizing than the Living Hell on earth an HRC Presidency would leave the kids coming down the road after I'm dead and gone.

Thanks for making my point for me. A Religious Bigot. Ah HAH, HAH, HAH!

I'm screen capturing this and bookmarking this. It's that good.

So the next time you pee on my leg, out of turn and out of place,

Since I'm a 'Religious Bigot', would you mind terribly, telling me just What Religion It Is I desire to have Made Federal Law?
