Wow. Now what do I have to do to get someone to write that about me ?
He is responding to this.
Old HTML seems to have an us and them world view. Libertarians want free trade, so he won't give it to them unless they give him a "better than Swedish" welfare state. I might add that extremist, torturing, corrupt, theocratic, plutocratic, hypocritical, evil, slimy, lying, killing, stealing Republicans like Dick Cheney do not want al Qaeda to plant H-bombs in every major US city, but I, personally, am willing to give Cheney what he wants on that one in exchange for a welfare state no better than France's.
See how relatively reasonable I am ?
