Quote# 25852

Fortunately for this nation most of our intellectualoids [sic] only pen silly columns, and don't govern our people or make our laws. If they did we would all be up the creek. Our libertarian gurus would likely have us all enjoying snuff films beamed into our homes 24/7; there would be heroin sold in Kmarts, child porn delivered with the junk mail, and terrorist manuals available in our school libraries.

What the fuck are you rambling on about you loon?
COuld you build a bigger fucking strawman? Holy fucking shit, do you seriously know anybody who wishes this stuff to be true? Why do you insist on inflamatory, scattershot bullshit and paranoia to try and convey a message (what that message is i'm not entirely sure)? And does your underground bunker have e-mail access?

He's not a troll. He's one of the leading lights of the Australian Religious Right. Fortunately, our Religious Right is not as big nor as politically influential as yours.

On my blog (http://fivepublicopinions.blogspot.com) I have a kind of \"Wingnut of the month\" award named after him.

I'm not a libertarian and don't particularly care for some of their politics but I am honest enough to acknowledge that they are probably the least likely people to force anyone to have snuff films beamed into their homes or any of the rest of the BS in BM's rant.

Yesssirree, cause that's what all intellectuals do in their spare time. To hell with reading, research and deep thinking - gimme some goddam child porn and some smack. Yee haw. Isn't that how to become intellectual?

Yeah, right, like any self-respecting intellectualoid would ever be seen in a Kmart. They'd have it sold at Whole Foods, you silly billy.

The only thing he might be correct about is the heroin, though it would probably be sold at the Kmart's pharmacy, not in the check out lane with the gum and candy.

Or more probably, all that wouldn't happen, because libertarian means to \"tolerate\" people who do that, not forcing into it(apparently for you it's a synonym). Strawmen don't serve for anything.

Because we wouldn't want intellectuals making laws and running the country, would we?

::COuld you build a bigger fucking strawman?

At this point Edward Woodward (or Nicholas Cage for you young un's) should start to look worried.

What to hell is an \"intellectualoid\", a smart-ass friend of yours named Lloyd? You truly don't understand libertarians do you Bill? You really don't understand anything at all except \"penning silly columns\", do you Bill? If we were to listen to blow-hard cretins like you, we would be up the creek, wouldn't we, Bill?

Oh noes, the intellectualoids are coming, they're coming from space, saying they're coming in peace!

I could be mistaken, Bill, but doesn't that first sentence include you?

Bill:

Please capitalize the \"L\" when you're straw-manning the Libertarian Party types. Us libertarian-socialists don't like being associated with them.

Yeah, libertarians want to reduce coercion, not increase it. Why don't you learn what the fuck you're talking about first?

5/30/2007 9:15:38 PM

Professor M

Sophomore -- that's \"for some value of 'coercion'\" in the case of the LP.
