I applaud your effort to defend the freedom of speech ammendment to your constitution, and think it is valourous of you to challenge the beef industry and McDonalds to a battle-royale, however, in your attempts to enlighten the public, you have made various errors. First off, if you invite someone to sue you for liable, it may not be wise to call them cattle-ranching assholes. That alone is enough to gain a judgement against you. Furthermore, you discredit your own position when you resort to such use of words. I applaud your effort, however, you should try to be a little more careful in the words you choose if you really want to be taken seriously.
