I welcome, whole-heartedly, your refutation of my posting. I
meant no disrespect (if that is the way you took it). But, taking your
intellect in account, I find no real cause for you to label me a NAZI. I
do not tie your argument into such a scheme. So for you to cite me as
thus, I believe, undermines any objectivity with which I can treat your
argument. I do not ask that you treat my arguments with any respect.
They may, in fact, be in need of a good berating. But for you to label
me as a NAZI, I find as greatly offensive. Many friends of mine have had
family members die in Nazi death camps, so your label is most
ill-humored. I do not deny my right-wing inclinations, but Nazism is no
where among them. If you cannot accept this then I would advise you to
take two steps back and re-examine your position. Sir, no matter your
loose use of the term, I am no NAZI!
