trade with and all other interested parties, well then, they can`t be

So because we choose to maintain a statist and totalitarian empire we 
had better set an example of how to do it to the rest of the world???

It is also diffult to see why I don`t go round to mr. Bickfords 
house and kill him, his dog, and his pet hamster, but I don`t, nor do

Has anyone got this guys IQ, it`s probably the first ever negative IQ
