    My point was more that a poster who claims the mantle of "libertarianism" continuously defends neocons with quotes from other neocons while making neocon argument.
    It seems you have no idea what a 'neo-con' actually is.

    Forget your personal labels, which mean little to anyone else, and check for the truth.

    Beyond your inability to find "truth" in what the neocon Kristol pronounced, I find it funny that my commenting about the neocon Kristol fawning over the neocon Thatcher is a display of my not understand who is or is not a neocon.

    LOL!

    Well, thanks for telling me what I would say....You're completely, and enormously wrong, and it is rather arrogant of you to ascribe to tell me what I would or would not do, but that aside, the announcement that no one would attend was made BEFORE Boston....So yeah, want to try again?

    "Neo-con" has a specific political meaning, and it isn't the slur you and your ilk have turned it into.

    I specifically applied it to Kristol and Thatcher, show how that is incorrect.

    "William Kristol (born December 23, 1952) is an American neoconservative political analyst and commentator."

    "The election of Margaret Thatcher as Prime Minster in 1979 in the United Kingdom brought new imputus to neoconservative ideas on both sides of the 'pond', with Thatcher representing the triumph of key 'neoconservative' ideas not only over the 'socialist' ideals of the European post-war consensus, built around union representation and the Welfare State - but over traditional 'British conservatism' too. So-called Reagonomics and Thatcherism were two names for the same neoconservative policy."

    Has Kristol or Thatcher ever been anything else but Conservatives?

    Most progressive liberals tend to throw out that term as an antisemitic slur...That's a fact.

    They use it as a pejorative in an effort to appear 'intellectual' but their cluelessness, and their antisemitism yes, is always eventually exposed.

    I'm still waiting for you to show that my calling them neoconservative was incorrect, and you can add whether I am being "antisemitc" in doing so.

    Stop dancing and make a point about my comments, not what you think you saw from someone somewhere.

    Well, first off, you don't get to set the rules around here, so your demands are really funny....Secondly, provide a link to what you posted about Thatcher and we'll talk....
