    You made the claim, you supply the evidence to support your claim.

    You have no idea what you're talking about. Prove me wrong.

    "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."
    Ignorance may be bliss, but it doesn't make for very effective debate. Kristol is absolutely a neoconservative. Thatcher cannot be a neoconservative. The term "neoconservative" describes a strain of conservative thought derived from evolved liberal and radical intellectuals in the U.S. (and/or their children, see David Horowitz). Because many of those intellectuals were/are Jewish, neoconservatism is sometimes mistaken for a Jewish phenomenon, and anti-neoconservatism sometimes seems antisemitic. Regardless, as a Brit Margaret Thatcher could not, by definition, be a neoconservative.

    As for your subservience to Kristol, I have no doubt.

    Until I see where you got your quotes from no....Arguing with fools is a fools errand....

    My guess is that he got his quotes from some far left site, hence the language "so called" used in describing Reaganomics....Either way until he complies with the rules and posts the site he got that drivel from, he shouldn't be allowed to move on with his point.

    I have trouble getting links to consistently post properly, so I cut slack on that score. I agree with your assessment of his sourcing.
