Hey....anon....if you are so proud of your socialist pal, how come you don't have a name? Ashamed?

Seriously, what is it with you people and names? Would putting my name on it make any difference in the content? Why would maintaining my privacy mean that I'm ashamed?

With the behavior of the GOP lately I feel it is very prudent to maintain my anonymity. That does not mean I am implicating you personally. I have been very impressed with this site's integrity in allowing anonymous dissenting comments - and I was even a little antagonistic in one of my postings just to test them. They passed, and they gained some respect from me for that.

I am a firm believer that we can disagree. I will point out where I think logic is lacking or evidence is misused, but I remain committed that even if you can't provide a single shred of evidence to support your opinion you are still entitled to said opinion.

Anon, contrary to the behavior of the left, the majority of those on the right do not threaten or spew obscene names, etc., that seems so common on many left sites.
