I am in a flame war with a socialist today. That is taking all my mental energy. Normally, I'm not much to spend too much time on these types of things, but it affects my town.

California has decided they think mixed used housing is a good thing. They develop housing in which they sell some of the units at full price and others at below market price. The wealthier people subsidise the lower income units. It's called the The Bay Area Plan. Where there are government mandates for income levels and housing prices.

I flat out told a person this was socialism. And all of a sudden I'm a name caller. Since I'm not trying to change the persons mind I'm in a flame war with, but the people watching - I have to be very delicate and not turn off my audience. It takes a lot of energy.
