94. I'm sorry that I've unintentionally upset some people in this thread
I wasn't deliberately being obnoxious or whatever, and it's unfortunate that some of my comments have been construed in such a way.

I think we ALL agree that poverty is a most unacceptable situation in this modern age, and I think we ALL agree that measures have to be taken to try and reduce the scale of poverty.

We ALL have differing views on what these measures are and how poverty can be reduced....the fact that my views are coming from a Centrist Democratic philosophy doesn't mean they are less valid than views that might come from a Liberal Democratic philosophy, and I'm not about to brush aside the Liberal Democratic philosophy because that's just as valid as the Centrist Democratic philosophy.

But I am quite bothered that I got jumped on by a number of people, seemingly for having a different opinion than they.

Again, I didn't mean to intentionally upset some people and I'm sorry that I did.
