Obviously BBS was suggesting your wife was the terrorist in the situation, and to some degree he is right, because it wouldn't be the first time unfortunately, but he is also insanely hypocritical on this because its an example of Government probably going too far, which he usually is against, but instead abandons that because of a personal bias against you. There will be an arrogant answer about how he was right on this occasion as he is right in every instance that he ever posts, which is unfortunate, because it makes every post suspect of bias.

BBS, why do you want people to fight?
Let's assume your Serious Business.
The underlined is not the only outcome, and people can learn the proper art of argument over time--as crispybits mentions. From conflict comes better coordination.
I'm just wondering if people realize how emotionally susceptible they are to creating strawman fallacies.
