130. My first name is Milton and my last name begins with an F.
And Milton Friedman would not have cared about women and children who have to prostitute themselves since he would have considered it part of the benefit of a free market.

People in the US need to get over the idea that they are more deserving or superior to everyone else in the world, if some guy in the US has to do without getting a new 42" plasma every year so some girl does not have to sell her body for food I am ok with that.
