I said "more and more often coming from the corporate power-base".

First of all, what you posted doesn't refute that.  Second, lawyers can 
be considered a part of the corporate power-base.  They're interested in 
the same exact issues that I was discussing.

Please read the point before trying to refute it.

Sure I do.  It's the same reason that there are age and immigration 
limitations on the ability to be elected to specific offices.  You *do* 
understand *that* don't you?

Thanks, Dittohead.  Likewise.  :)  You do realize that I was referring 
to the arguments of those that were questioning my point, don't you?  I 
agree that their arguments aren't grounded in common sense or logic.

Do yourself a favor and remove that commemorative EIB golden microphone 
from your rectal cavity.  Rush wants it back.
