You can still be in a Monarchy and be Democratic. It is possible to have a Monarchy and still vote for representatives. In most cases the Monarch or President is just a figurehead and does not weald the real pwer.

We are still a world power – and no ones bitch. We laugh at the US and they are the only ones that are so busy looking at themselves, they do not see what we ALL think.

Topic: Off-topic / What is the best restaurant you've ever been to, and why is it the best?

Depends on my mood and where I am – If I am at home The Hunters Meet or one of several Chinese or Indian restaurants. I like the Petit Chatalet in Paris, or the Grappe d’Or near Bergerac when I am in France.

I dont think the ranks are that different between US and Britain

I remember sergeant being a very high rank in the US

Sergeant majors are the highest rank for NCO-s (I think), while Second Leftenants are the lowest CO rank given to those who pass the academy.
However, Sergeant Major<Second Leftenant.

Sergeant Major is a WO1 or sometimes a WO2 – also known as RSM or CSM – WO1 is the highest non commissioned rank and Second Lieutenant is the lowest commissioned officer rank

I don’t know about the US – but in the British Army the ranks go
Private
Lance Corporal
Corporal
Sergeant
Staff Sergeant
Warrant Officer 2
Warrant Officer 1
Second Lieutenant
Lieutenant
Captain…..

Topic: Off-topic / Sleeping disorders and drugs to control them

If you have a bad sleep disorder – try to get referred to a sleep centre. I was really bad, not sleeping, dozing when I shouldn’t, blackouts – all sorts. Went to a sleep centre (Papworth Hospital, Cambridge, Mr Schneerson is one of the best in the field). Got diagnosed and treated – not perfect, but mostly sleep really well now

You’re not racist…

The sniper could of been black as well.

That does not make it less racist – The non racist version would be that a man crossed the road (person for non sexist version).

I sometimes hate this PCness

Looks like you are going to fit in well in your military academy when you grow up. Makes me laugh some 15 year old giving it the big I am. You have not done anything yet. When you have qualified for this military school, gone through training, passed out, and then served your country – Then you can tell me all about it.
Some of us have already done all of those things – and more before you were even born.

I am not boasting that I am going to be an officer

Dont is a word – do you prefer don’t

It wasn’t just guarenteed, how about outta and an instead of am.

If you are going to be in the USAF you will need to pay more attention to detail.

Get out of the military academy – you have to get in it – and get through it first.
I hope that you do not need to be able to spell to be an officer in the US military.

I do not know about US forces – but the British Army training is very tough – don’t count your chickens and all that.
