bigbear, it is a typical problem with the left that they have rewritten history to fit their narrative and then only listen to/read the things that back what they already believe. if you haven't read Adam Smith, you should. it's good stuff. it's also confusing and it's theory. some parts of economics he seemed to understand, but lots of it drifted toward socialism.
i'd be hard pressed to see how Adam Smith is relevant here. he's another one who never actually had to test his theory with real life....'
tecumseh i don't care if you carry on. your passive/aggressive "snips" don't bother me. i'd only suggest that you study history a little more and not draw your info from Huffington or Democrat.com, because i read those also
