I am opposed to name calling. I remember when I was on my most recent election campaign, I sent emails to some "Mitch" McConnell neo-con supporters blasting him for his support of the never-ending American war in Iraq. Well, they informed me that that makes me a "socialist". What does running around killing Arabs in a country that was not involved in 911 have to do with "government ownership of the means of production", Karl Marx, Fredreich Engalls, or anything remotely approaching "socialism"? I believe in the free enterprise economic system and in the private ownership of property. I am not a socialist. I don't appreciate being called a socialist. Irresponsible name-calling only results in bloggers limiting the publication of comments. In my own, separate blogspots I exercised the option of reviewing, deciding whether to publish, and deciding whether to modify comments. I only deleted expletives, and did not delete whole comments. If somebody wants to cuss me, they can do it on their own blogspot; I'm not going to pay for it nor publish it. Kenneth Stepp.
