    Good post, but always offputting in some respect - yes I know all about Jackson's battles over a National Bank. And his battles with South Carolina over enforcement of a tariff. And a whole host of things that maybe YOU don't know about.

    Arrogance is fine - assumption of ignorance by the other person is not. You really need to cool that.

      posted a line about knowing you knew about a lot of this stuff (if not all) and how I was posting to the whole group who may not know some of this stuff. Now I wish I had.

      The whole surprise thing was just being a smart ass.

      My apologies for giving you the impression I thought you were clueless.

      as a note to the 98%, including myself, who didn't know that.  I didn't see anything personal.  

      If we were in a town hall meeting, he would have taken the podium and addressed the town after you had finished.  The surprise was aimed at, and shared with, the people in the hall.

          I posted a reply to you and then proceeded to write a diary. You had every reason to think that I assumed you didn't know what I was tlking about. Why? Because I'm a lazy bastard.

          As I was proofreading my post, I realized that I had strayed outside the reply zone into a monologue to an ubspecified reader. And I was just too tired, or lazy to add a qualifier.

          So not to turn this into a apology contest, but you were absolutely right in my opinion.

          And the "ever heard of it? Surprise." bit was actually a commentary on how the MSM and even history books often whitewash the the real American history. I went most of my adult life never knowing of the alleged plot to overthrow FDR's government by a bunch of robber barons and bankers. Or how the Fed is really private.
