Uh, no. Its people like you who think that you can pop off anything at
all, so long as you act like you are saying it in a good natured way, or
say 'cheerio, pip pip' at the end makes everything nice nice happy
happy. Your repeatedly skewed ideas about the world, like
anti-circumcision being the same as anti-semitism, which have not
logical basis in fact, as well as your assumption that the term 'a man's
wife' asserts some sort of property claim, indicates to me that you are
not playing with a full deck, or else you get some visceral, unadmitted
pleasure from insulting people and acting innocent about it...

There is no property orientation involved, but this comment of yours is
exactly the sort of blind assumption you keep making in all of your
inane and insulting posts. You are operating off of some sort of
politically correct memeset that seems to look at anything anybody says
from a 90 degree angle from the rest of the rational universe.

No, Brian, I owe you nothing.
