For goodness sake, A Smith. Have you not heard the common metaphor, which I believe Ryan quoted above, that "your freedom to swing your arms ends at my nose"? Obviously this means that individual freedoms have limits. Specifically, they have limits where they begin to impact negatively on others. Ryan and I both used this metaphor to illustrate the limitations of your free market/libertarian ideology. To deliberately misconstrue this as an advocacy for actual violence, defies all reason and sense, but then so do most of your notions about government regulation and the free market, so I guess I shouldn't be surprised.

And now, after I warned Ryan about the futility of arguing with you, I've let you suck me into your bizarre parallel universe as well. Fare thee well, A Smith. I must bid adieu while I still have my bearings.
