    With my record, I don't deserve the best. What's second best?

    Also, you talk crap about Facebook, there is no retaliation. You try to bring up the crimes within the United States government, they will throw you in jail via the Espionage Act

    Yep, and that's why I said "almost totally irrelevant".
    I was told that the best things for me were to eat healthy foods, walk up hills, stop smoking cigars, and cut out drinking Scotch.

    I read that, and thought that you were joking (or ill informed).

    Then I read "New US Espionage Act prosecution has troubling implications for press freedom", and changed my mind.
