      It was off topic so I'm not surprised. We can continue discussing food here if you like. Speaking of which I'm hungry!

      Cool! Grats man, I work full time so school is going slow, 2 semesters left on my bachelors. But I have a great job so I can't complain, it's much better than the opposite situation a lot of people are in.

      Ya I started grad school since I talked to you last, so I post much less. The only reason I am even online now, is because I just finished my last paper of the semester a few hours ago and I am spending the night at my apartment just doing nothing.

      I believe the part about being a masochist!! I am convinced I am, or else I wouldn't subject myself to this place on such a regular basis. You at least have the good sense to only come here in stretches, I don't post a whole lot anymore, but I sign on at least every other day. Often more.

      Hey, I see you are in a particularly self-hating mood at the moment, and have therefore come back to subject yourself to this forum for a while!! That is nice to see.

      Yeah, its a dangerous thing, labelling oneself. Losing the socialist has done me a world of good, it means I can actually finish my argument. Bottom-up is preferable, hence my like for work-place democracy. If one was to acheive a cooperative business based economy then the requirement (or form) of state involvement may be highly different or (one would hope) unnecesary.

      I've mellowed out a good bit. I find the more I learn about economics the less rabid I am about politics in general. I'm very much still a public choice guy, and don't care much for top down organizations, but I'm careful about labeling myself... especially around here.

      So, still a Randy, or? I suppose I'm less rabid, mainly because it is like hitting your head against a brick wall at times on this forum. I think my knowledge of economics has improved but certainly not to the level of, say, Reiver.

      Oh, this is The-Irish-Socialist btw. I requested to be banned so I could change my name and lose the misleading 'Irish' part. At the moment the level of debate hardly deserves the name but it has rebounded slightly from its lowest depths.

      Anikdote, long time no see. I had figured you'd stopped posting.

      Ya, I agree with almost everything you said. I do think he offers an incredibly interesting perspective, and I have to admit it does amuse me to see him frustrate so many right wingers as much as he does!! :)

      The problem with that is, while Reiver is clearly intelligent and quite well informed when it comes to economics, he simply isn't the greatest debater(which is why you have to try and understand him). If he were clearer, and laid out his positions in detail he would be fantastic. However he usually responds to peoples posts, some of them long and and clearly filled with effort by saying things like "you have been so naive as to ignore the theory of the firm." While offering no further evidence or argument. What he says is often true, but a good debater would expand and explain their comments, and craft actual arguments using evidence. So I appreciate Reiver on the one hand, and I think he could be a great poster, but his unwillingness to engage meaningfully keeps him from being one.

      Yep, the better right wingers are gone as well. Frogger is still around, and I always found him to be an intelligent posters, but you left, Soutpaw left, WhiteFox left, and a few other smart right wingers left. On the left Javablack left, Raytri almost never posts, Teamosil is in law school so posts much less, the list goes on and on. There are other good posters who came and went in your absence as well. I used to find this place to be a welcome distraction, and I actually gained something from it. It actually made me a better debater. Now I am not so sure, because I seem to have heard every argument that gets thrown at me 100 times, and it gets boring responding to the same nonsense in perpetuity. However as long as you stay out of the current events, world news, and election forums(which are cesspools) you can find some intelligent conversations going on if you try.
