Mr. Kopp, there are many problems with your arguments, the first of which is that you immediately accuse me of being a communist. That is a very, very old line of attack from anti-labor conservatives. Any [auth] mention of an effort to help the working class is immediately labeled communism.
I’m not talking about utopia. I’m talking about the plight of the American working class, a specific topic that you continually dodge.
I say that the American working class deserves a better standard of living. I point out the fact that 43 percent of American households are on the verge of destitution. Instead of responding to that fact, you call me a communist, claim that I’m attacking you and assert that I’m destroying the country.
Now tell me, what’s not funny about that?
