    UK... Now if we could only turn our childish Congress into a Parliment, where the members are only allowed a minute to present and a minute for the PM to respond, we could stop this endless, fruitless back and forth gotcha exercise.

    Other than those forged in blood.

    fair point, but i don't think politicians value that
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    Interesting perspective on the UK. I think you'll find that the US has a number of Air Force bases in the UK. Fyligdales Moor, Menwith Hill, Lakenheath and Mildenhall are all joint RAF/USAF bases.

    As for parliament, I think you are mistaking the Vaudeville of Prime Minister's Question Time, a half-hour shoot-out once a week, with the dreary, long-winded but essential business of the House and its committees which take up 95% of parliamentary time. PMQs are an essential part of parliament in a Prime Ministerial system, perhaps not in a Presidential one, although I think everyone would love to the the Pres called to public account weekly, wouldn't they?
