Thank you, I am lucky

and fortunate to know what I've learned from places like this,, C4L, CATO, and especially Stossel.

I love your attitude, especially that you feel you can learn from anyone.

The best lesson I've ever been taught was something my grandfather said often

"You can learn from a 5 year old negro if you'll just listen".

Keep in mind, my grandfather was born in 1930's Alabama and grew up with governor wallace. He wasn't a racist person but as with anyone else I've met of his age, he spoke the language of his time.

His message to me and everyone else he said that to was basically that we should listen to everyone, regardless of who they were or what they were saying.

The individual who refuses to defend his rights when called by his Government, deserves to be a slave, and must be punished as an enemy of his country and friend to her foe. - Andrew Jackson
