Actually, no, I don't think you're a Nazi in the least. Let's just say, 'falling in line' instead of 'goostepping'. Perhaps my attempt at using flavorful lanugage wasn't so successful. I didn't mean to pull an HCKL on you, but I can see I'm being read that way, which is not helped by that word.

I stand by my agreement with the arguments put out by Henwood, Yates,Rakesh, Perleman, Yoshie, Tabb,, and Bacon on this list about the wisdom of the AFL-CIO's policy on China trade. That you are a Nazi is not one of the arguments being advanced by any of us...
