: Will you please spare me this condescending BS, Mark. I can appreciate people who allow their deeply held emotions to substitute for any economic/political knowledge or practical sense and I have no particular axe to grind with you, but your ignorance of political and economic affairs is astounding. If you can't grasp my point regarding the corporate income tax, you are either not trying or not very smart. You seem to be fairly intelligent so I will ume the former. You comments regarding Johnson only continue the hypocricial trend of ailing a man without addressing his major works which are available to anyone. His historical works are very well-received. I'm sorry you haven't read them. I don't know where you drew his defense of the death wish on Rushdie but I have no doubt it was out-of-context. If it were in context, I'm sure we would have seen the actual quotation and a source. You are impressing nobody with your extremely general defenses of your liberalism. Some day, when you take a break from romantic poetry (a subject against which I have absolutely nothing) and actually learn something about taxes and economics, the tenor of your posts will likely change. You can't hide behind that wall forever. Until then, I hope you and Laon enjoy your high-fives. I am willing to admit when Johnson wrongly attacked Shelley, but I doubt you would have the same intellectual honesty in a political debate.
: Sincerely, Joe.
