Er, yeah. I remember that you mentioned that you knew his family, and you vaguely hinted that he was primarily interested in advancing his own political career or something of that nature. Big deal. That's the nature of politics. I am sure of the tens of thousands of people that have at one time or other posted on this website, some have known Bono personally and some of these have had positive impressions and some not so positive. Someone on this board once mentioned a vague acquantaince with the Bush twins. Again, it doesn't really impact on a discussion of the rightness or wrongness of Bush's policies one way or the other.

I, for one, am glad that Paul serves as a vehicle allowing ideas outside of mainstream opinion to be given a hearing. He was ahead of the posse on Austrian economics. He's been talking about it for decades and now, post credit crunch, it's become fashionable.

Just make sure next time you make an accusation about being prejudiced and just dismissing someone based on a side you have something to back it up. Otherwise you look foolish. I've known this man's personal and policy for a long time.

Here's the problem. You post a 48 minute video, you don't get a lot of responses so you go on attack:

You call everyone who doesn't like Paul sheep, so I question your sheephood, and you go on attack again. It's you MO. Logic and analytical approach was not used by the OP, so the thread was destined to die.

A lot of what Paul says in the 48 minutes I have no problem with, it's his approach and conclusions I usually have a problem with...

There wasn't much in the post or his posting history that showed me that that was nothing but him covering his tracks.

You and I both know this poster has a propensity of making such sweeping attacks so without any winks or obvious signs of being in jest I took it at face value.

Forgive me.

I don't do winks. They're beneath me.

Thank you
