I actually enjoyed some of Top Gear but yes no matter how important you are or how much money you make it is not okay to hit someone except in self defence or the defence of someone else.
Frankly the fans of Clarkston are the ones that annoy me the most. Why do they put up and even support a rich adult man that is acting in a way that would be considered inappropriate for a 3 year old.

I have to wonder about this concept. Take the TV series Sex in the City. The viewership was in large women but just about the only thing they talked about was men.
Relationships are important to both men and women but women seem to discuss it more.
My workplace is really diverse and no one really cares what your gender or race is as long as you can get it done.

" They just need to nab the few leaders of any of such effort, jail them on drug charges and are done with it. Or would you want to say that you mean to do some action beyond the words? No. You won't."
Wow that is down right scary... maybe you should not not post such things or you might get busted...
That is just it name any leader" that has had that happen to them.
