    Drinking the neo-con Kool-Aid much?

    We've also known nothing even close to Smithian capitalism ever in this country, so keep on thinking we have.

    Hey Mr. "intellectual".
    Learn what "Neocon" actually means before you incorrectly apply it again.

    If you want to claim that there's not a very strong anti-intellectual current in American, then you can go ahead and enjoy your ignorance.
