$$$ and Big Brother XXX

Just how dedicated to your views are you, iron horse? I'm guessing you refuse to pay your taxes and break every law which you disagree with?

Fancy offering an explanation to justify that quote?

I could throw around a truckload of quotes too without any context, explanation, or justification, but that would ultimately be a meaningless and fruitless exercise.

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

But it might be fun. If I wasn't so tired I'd start quoting right now...

Minarchism is not anarchism.
