I may be the sanest person here

I'd need more proof of that than I've been shown.
My own sanity has never been a question, I'm not, nor do I particularly want to be. It was actually during a brief period of sanity that I sought psychiatric help and I can assure you that I have been completely cured.
Back to topic though, as much as I abhor war and violence I'm not a raving peacenik. I understand that violence is an inherent part of the human condition just as is politics and the two are intertwined with economics. I simply accept the reality of it.

Good coffee, good weed, and time on my hands...
