email response to Michael Hiltzik, March 19, 2014 :


Your LA Times update is accurate, but I do want to bring to your attention that I am not now, nor have I ever been, a "conservative." 

I understand that people make these simplistic inferences because of the need to categorize their subject on a political opinion scale. My views on immigration, peace, "crony" capitalism, TBTF, and sanctions are directly contrary to conservative ideology. 

Although the libertarians claim me, I have many departures from their position, but I do support their resolute opposition to foreign interventions, while finding individual cases in which intervention may be justified,...Vernon....

BTW, my favorite refrigerator sticker is "Who would Jesus deport?"

Note from the author **An error in the next to final paragraph did not get corrected in the final draft of my article. It was not Bernanke's stimulus; it was the Bush-Obama federal government stimulus that failed. As noted, we still await the final consequences of Bernanke's unprecedented actions.**
