Had to drop by to note the passing of Tony Blankley. My heart goes out to his family and the crew of LRC. Here's Newt's comments which I ran across: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/01/08/newt-gin...

Thanks, but I have heard nothing back from the mods on what happened, so I am assuming they are either indifferent to the hacking of my account or happy about my departure.

Either way, this appears to be a risky place to post.

Good night, and good luck.

My response to the hacking of my account:

Somebody out there want to shut me up? DONE. I'm gone. Congratulations. You win.

I wish all the rest of you the best of health and prosperity in the future.

So long.

They don't like me, perhaps?

SOMEBODY HACKED MY ACCOUNT.

See that deleted post below? Not me. I didn't post the word 'test' which appears in the thread below it.

WOW! Looks like my account was hacked.

Somebody trying to shut me up?

Anybody remember what this post was about?

Exactly!

I think the fact that modern Republicans are SO FAR to the right of even the Libertarian founding father, Friedrich Hayek shows just how demented our country has become.

Republicans are to the FAR RIGHT of Friedrich Hayek and Adam Smith, the founder of Capitalist thinking.

They are off the deep end - beyond Capitalism, beyond Libertarianism.

Modern Republicans and Tea Baggers are crazed, PREDATORY plutocrats.

“There is no reason why, in a society which has reached the general level of wealth which ours has attained the first kind of security should not be guaranteed to all without endangering general freedom... security against severe physical deprivation (and) the certainty of a given minimum of sustenance for all... some minimum of food, shelter, and clothing, sufficient to preserve health and the capacity to work, can be assured to everybody. ... [T]he case for the state’s helping to organize a comprehensive system of social insurance is very strong.”

I should make clear, that's not mine. That's the text of the Nader/West letter.

I only posted all that because I could only find the original in a PDF.
