My entire discussion was focused on you. The dichotomy between your beliefs regarding the site vs. your beliefs regarding other policies of the government was my interest.
My thought was that a person of convictions would be bothered by a rule that, on the surface, seems to be instituted without any forethought.
But, clearly, I was mistaken............for reasons unknown.
Focused on me? Well, if you look closely, I answered with my opinion, not citation of some (other) genius. So if you want to know what I think it is all there right in front of you. If you see it as dichotomous, well that's your perception, not mine.
To me it is perfectly clear and elegantly easy to understand. A guest is different from a citizen. If you're a guest you go by the hosts rules or you leave. If you're a citizen and your gov screws-up then you squawk and squeal and do your duty as you see it.
That's not how you see it? Fine with me. Now I have clearly stated exactly what I think about this at least 4 times, above. Do you wish to argue about what I REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY mean? Give it another shot. I'm betting my answer wont change.
Now what do you think about the issue? (the one that doesn't include arguing about what I think of it)
