    By the way, Schilling, nor his ideology, did anything wrong here. Rhode Island made the mistake and apparently the only person who believed so was the governor who campaigned against it.
    Clearly you cannot make the link, as it does not exist. This is becoming pointless. Your position is folly, as you cannot document what you claimed.

    Maybe we should ask Schilling.

    I think he made his position quite clear. Schilling thinks he pays too much taxes and it hurts his company, yet he uses those taxpayer dollars, via a loan from the state, to help out his business. Seems pretty clear.

    I never said he was wrong as a businessman. Nor did I infer fraud. (although I am betting this will get investigated) All I said was he's a flaming hypocrite. That's in addition to his normal prickly self.

    I don't think it is hypocritical at all. Now if he did anything illegal to get that state funding, then I will change my story. Until then, I see it as a businessman taking advantage of an opportunity to help his business.

    “It really is not that complicated, I just don’t understand HOW people don’t grasp the concept of ‘Free Market’, and why left alone, it WORKS!” - Curt Schilling, March 2010
    Curt Schilling's Colossal Big Government, Free Market Hypocrisy

    Schilling is a self-described conservative with a disdain for big government, which he considers intrusive and overbearing. He is a big believer in people helping themselves and solving their own problems.

    A couple of lines from an old post on Schilling’s blog, 38 pitches, sums it up:

    “If a conservative is down-and-out, he thinks about how to better his situation.

    “A liberal wonders who is going to take care of him.”
    Media Nation Curt Schilling

    .
    “I’m not looking, never have been, for handouts,” he told Sean Hannity in March.
    I’ve never taken a penny and I’ve done nothing but create jobs and create economy. And so how does that translate into welfare baby? I’ve tried to do right by people.
    Welfare baby Curt Schilling: I am not a welfare baby - Salon.com

    "There can be no question our country is in the worst economic crisis of our lifetimes. I also think there can be no question that it falls on us, the individuals, to find a way out of our own personal crisis." -- Curt Schilling, February 2011

    If you have links to situations where he has said people shouldn't take out loans or declare bankruptcy the. By all means, show that to be the case and you will without question be correct that he is a hypocrite. I am unaware of this and you apparently know something we dont so don't keep us in suspenders...show the hypocrisy

    Can't find much on google, but what I found is kinda hypocritical.
