"...you keep forgetting one very important thing. The same
freedom of speech that lets you ramble on about everything
under the sun as if you were really someone important with
something worthwhile to say, lets the rest of us tell you that
you are an egocentric blowhard with delusions of self-
importance, a nazi-fetish, and all the social graces of a 2
year old."
