129. Excuse me but what exactly is socialist about the same
basic ideas that John F Kennedy proposed over 40 years ago?

Kennedy too wanted unused lands to be given over to landless peasants. That's right the great JFK. It is not so radical an idea. In fact it used to be considered common sense. Why do people need to hold land that they don't even have the money to work for themselves. Either 1) you don't know what the land reforms are or 2) you consider JFK a socialist , which of course is absurd.

As far as objectivity you lose big time on that account. Kerry's speech was 95% against Chavez with one sentence thrown in about the coup. And yet you had no problem with that at all.

That is all I have to say on the matter. I know you'll have to have the last word so go for it.
