    You didn't seem to have a problem with it when you were claiming my initials are CT and thus calling me slime. Why are you scared now?

    Your style of writing can be and is often very confusing. The slime comment was yours and not mine.

    If you want to discuss the topic - fine. Baiting me is not going to work.

    Does that mean that making suicide illegal violates someone's right to life?

    I have read the commerce clause many times; now what does that have to do with FDR in this dicussion?

    More importantly, why are trying to derail the thread?
