    I can't imagine anyone having enough time to engage this gentleman.
    He must have been raised on Russian novels.

    He does love irony though.
    At the end he states "I believe one the most effective ways to lose an argument is to overstate your case;"

    Seriously, how can a person who uses 1000 words when 10 would do expect to convey their point?

    Interesting. He sees specifics, whereas Oleg pictures broad concepts in his photos. I believe he is wrong, especially when he states his opposition to the death penalty shifted - he is now opposed for differant reasons. Whoopee. I WORKED Death Row. I am a BIG supporter of the death penalty, as it removes them from our world.
    And for his assertation that there are no real goblins?
    Come to the prisons I have worked at, and I'll introduce you to "people" who will freeze your blood. Yes, there are are real monsters. And 96% of them will be released some day.

    You know whats strange? His writings on the 2A are anti-gun, but his entry on the VT shootings seems pro gun.

    If you can't dazzle 'em with brilliance. . . . .

    Baffle 'em with BS. If I thought for a moment that anything I might say would make a dent in that smug, self-righteous attitude of his I might actually have a go at it but he seems entirely too pleased with the smell of his own droppings.

    He argues Saul Cornell's position:

    That we have the right to own guns for public purposes, but private purposes is suspect.

    What a strange position.

    The Constitution guarantees the right to vote. But it is not an individual right; it is a collective right. Therefore, I will vote for everyone and save time and trouble. I will, of course, pick the only reasonable, honest, decent, competent and experienced candidate - me.

    "...the single most valuable observation I have come across was Dr. Gary Klecks' invocation of Sturgeon's Law, namely that 90% of everything is crap."

    I agree with that assessment in the context of this exercise in verbosity. Parts 1 AND 2.

    I also believe the photograph is one of the author regarding himself in the mirror.
