He has the ignorance to make a public ass out of himself. One is usually
not conducive to the other, especially when he (and you) show absolutely no
sign of having a clue who "they" are. Fighting straw men has never been an

As for the stuff you've posted, it's generally consisted of either
poorly-researched and unintelligible tripe (Hedges), or fantasies concocted
from whole cloth (your Quebec FTAA claims). Everyone gets to have an
irrational vendetta (you: black bloc participants, Doug Henwood: Andy
Stern, etc.), but the rest of us are only obligated to indulge it so much.
