    I mis-spoke. I did bring up socialism. But he introduced the idea that I should "give back" a bunch of things I never mentioned, changed the nature of the thread, treated my post in an accusatory way, and used socialism to insult me:

    You have bought into the extreme right wing framing
    And insulted America as well.
    in the typically fundamentalist American manner.
    I responded in kind. And was nicer about it, frankly.

      But, of course, cannot take back my post. So I apologize for that.

      However, I still think the term "moronic" was not needed.

      Other than that, I believe you made a good argument for mixed economy.

      Those of us who are Socialist do not appreciate being called names, even indirectly.

      Altho, since I've been a Socialist for 43 yrs, since age 19, I'm well used to being called every name in the book as well as threatened with physical violence.

      Yet, as shop steward, I was the first one my fellow workers called on when they were in trouble. Even my rt-wing fellow workers.

      Go figure.
