    Anyone that tries to equate Chavez to Stalin or any other tyrant is ignorant of history and should be ashamed.

Offering tribute to the giants of American history is a time-honored American tradtion and the ship-naming, especially a supply ship, probably appeals to many Americans of good will. Chavez did much to ensure Americans had the produce of the fields available at a fair price.

    Now, if Conservatives wish to outraged they should consider CVN-76 and CVN-77, the USS Ronald W. Reagan and the USS George H. W. Bush. Americans expect the names of warships to reflect duty, honor and courage. Certainly, those quailties were scarce if not non-existent in the ships' namesakes. Reagan did more to dishonor America with his attacks on American workers than any president in recent history. Bush abandoned his crew in the combat flying incident for which he has been acclaimed a hero. Certainly, honoring these two reprobates is far more reason for moral outrage than honoring an honest labor leader.
    While I may not totally agree with your assessment, I do understand where you're coming from.

    Correct. And Cesar Chavez certainly was a visionary and an explorer.

    No, I just think this naming is just bull****. What other weired choice will they pull out of their hat next? And the irony of you speaking about ignorance is galactic.

    No, you don't understand. To the right wing, these things are actually evil because they hurt profits.
