can you please refrain from NON-subjective...
YOU have crossed a line FAR more than the one you are pointing a finger at
it is as if you are asking someone not to be alive
- very sick -
plus you contradict yourself
no political posturing for us
then you tell us your posture (that's sooo cute how you do that)

my two sense about what you say in your political posturing
is that the complexity is a red haring
figure out something else to have a 'huge' problem with
(or at least figure out a way to tell people to shut up with intelligence
so it is not so easy to pick you apart)
or - again - go 'help' the poor by making a BIG FILM about a bread line
that will change everything (sarcasm)
