More Brilliance from Other Places

I just want to say that it gets harder and harder to remain a big government liberal* when the big government is doing dumb-ass stuff like making it illegal for me to annoy people anonymously on the internet. The guys over at Say Uncle are all over this, first the Uncle himself, and then #9. I'll leave the astute insightful comments to those guys. I'll just say that this is the stupidest thing I've heard of all day. What is the internet for if not annoying people anonymously? *So help me, Boy Scout, if you say one thing about me turning libertarian, I will kick you in the elbow.

Is the elbow a particularly painful place to be kicked? Or do you just like to show off how high you can kick?

I was thinking that kicking in the elbow would hurt the foot more than the elbow. But maybe she's not yet able to reach the face.

Since I wasn't personally threatened, allow me to be the one to say that I'm delighted to see B. joining our free-thinking ranks.

I just thought that the elbow would be specific enough that he'd know I wasn't kidding.

Oh, Coble!!! I shake my fist at you.

Aunt B is all talk. I offered to let her hit me as hard as she could without reprisal, and she chickened out.

So, mock her with impunity.

The password (my hand to god on this one)is: kuynt.

I honestly can't picture Aunt B getting violent with anyone. Maybe I could picture her seething in impotent rage, but striking someone? Nope, just can't see it.

Oh yeah.

All together now:

Aunt B, I see you are finally turning into a Libertarian.

Ohh, that felt good.

The problem with being a "big-government liberal" is that the big government is not now, nor has ever been, 'liberal.' Now, big-government fascists and totalitarians have always had it in spades.

Can I be your super, duper Jackie Chan back up and if you don't kick high enough to hit the elbow, hit them with a whacking stick. I'm from West Tennessee and we have those here.
Please, please.

I don't think Declan McCullagh is interpreting the law correctly: http://www.nyu.edu/classes/siva/archives/002638.html
