    Poor Britpat got slapped down on the Forrest thread.

    The mods should move this one to "History" or maybe the "Rubber Room" so it won't waste everyone's time.

    The idea that a so-called free market proponent also defends a slave state has to be the single greatest irony I have ever read.
