ROTFLMAO! What's the outgroup to life?

Almost from the moment the "three domain" scheme came out, cladists were 
pointing out that the Archaea were paraphyletic, based on the 
understanding of that time.

How far will you go with your attempts to link things you don't like 
with cladistics? IF the former CEO of General Motors had accepted 
paraphyletic groups, would the company still be solvent?
