    Well, I only know about him what I read in Wikipedia. Is there something specific you want to discuss, or do you just want to know whether people like him?

    Bastiat? Do not know of the person or whatever it is.
    And at this point in my life I am not interested in finding out.

    Since you as a 'liberal' only relies on 'wiki', then I expect no further intelligent discussion. Do a little bit of research outside of 'wiki' and read about the 'broken window'....

    I will wait with baited breath for some 'non-partisan hack' discussion.

    So, you get to ignore my question and insult me. I get to read what you want me to read. That doesn't seem like a great deal for me.

    I know what you are saying.............I get frustrated by our home forum, and came here to have intelligent discussion........but it seems like the partisans have taken over both, with little interest in having a non-partisan discussion...........no wonder I see fewer and fewer posts by BGG............he is my forum 'hero'. (You know of whom I speak)

    Didn't mean to insult you..........just please read Bastiat's writing on 'The Broken Window'.

    That Which is Seen, and That Which is Not Seen; by Frederic Bastiat

    And lets have a discussion. That's all I'm asking.
