HuellHowser,

You got that right.  When I first started writing here, Progressives and Liberals would often engage me in debate.  But far too frequently, it became "well authority X says so, that's why you're wrong" on their part.  When pressed, they would say "economics is too complex, so I leave it to the experts."

Basically, they were told a few things here and there, maybe some in college, and just accepted it as fact.

Bottom line, it's far easier to fool people than to convince them they have been fooled.

Glad you liked the blog. I bet the hot chicks just throw themselves at you at these parties.... :)
