Blagojevich, Rezco, Emanuel, Raines, Holder, Johnson, Ayers, etc.

It’s interesting, isn’t it, how all these nasty people swirl around Barack Obama without his being touched by or without his even knowing about their various despicable deeds? I wish this sorry son-of-a-bitch, Ayers, would just go away. It’s bad enough that he escaped prosecution on a technicality. It’s bad enough that our president-elect is pals with an America-hating terrorist. I can’t imagine how the families of his victims felt when they read Ayers' piece in the New York Times. Every few days the Times shows by example why it is the most hated publication in the United States. They just admitted that they are mortgaging their building to raise working capital due to the losses they are sustaining. I hope I live to see them go under.

Terrorist Bill Ayers Has His Say on Same Page McCain Was Refused

McCain's op-ed unworthy, but domestic terrorist Bill Ayers' op-ed is: "The Real Bill Ayers" falsely claims the Weather Underground nerver attacked people.

Posted by: Clay Waters 12/8/2008 Times Watch (Excerpt)

“During the 2008 campaign, John McCain's pro-Iraq War op-ed was judged by the Times editorial page as unworthy of publication (even though Barack Obama had penned a pro-withdrawal one for the paper just a week before).

But this weekend, one well-known personality from the campaign broke his silence and claimed that precious piece of journalistic real estate: 1960s domestic terrorist and Obama friend Bill Ayers wrote an op-ed for Saturday's edition, "The Real Bill Ayers," setting out his side of the story.

Ayers claimed not only that he never killed anyone (debatable, as the leader of a terrorist group that killed people) but told two falsehoods: that his group never attacked people; and that he regrets some of what he did then.” Times Watch

The Unreal Bill Ayers

Three Decades After the Weather Underground's End, He's Still Justifying Its Means

By Charles Lane December 11, 2008 Washington Post (Excerpt)

“Ayers won't let the issue die. He's got a book to sell and a misspent youth to rationalize.

In a Dec. 6 New York Times op-ed -- headlined "The Real Bill Ayers" -- Ayers cast himself as the victim of a "profoundly dishonest drama" in which he was branded an "unrepentant terrorist." He cops to "posturing" and "blind sectarianism" -- but insists that he never killed or hurt anyone and never intended to. His Weather Underground committed "symbolic acts of extreme vandalism directed against monuments to war and racism" -- not terrorism. Its bombings were surgical strikes "meant to respect human life."

Some people might buy this, but not if they know the actual history -- as opposed to Ayers's selective version. Ayers omits the 1969 "Days of Rage" riot in Chicago, spearheaded by his Weatherman faction of Students for a Democratic Society. He kicked it off by helping to blow up a downtown police monument the night of Oct. 6, 1969; the blast showered rubble on a nearby expressway and shattered more than 100 windows.

If a warning to the public preceded this strike, Ayers doesn't mention it in his 2001 memoir, "Fugitive Days" -- nor does contemporaneous media coverage. In fact, a bus driver told police that his vehicle stalled near the statue a half-hour before the blast; he would have been a sitting duck 30 minutes later. Days afterward, Ayers and other club-wielding leftists fought and injured police officers and smashed storefronts and cars. A government attorney tried to tackle one of them and wound up paralyzed.

In his Times column, Ayers's chronology focuses on 1970, the year he co-founded the Weather Underground "after an accidental explosion that claimed the lives of three of our comrades in Greenwich Village." But this wasn't some especially radicalizing furnace mishap. On March 6, 1970, three members of a Weatherman cell died when a bomb they were making blew up in their faces. Packed with nails for maximum lethality, it had been intended for a noncommissioned officers' dance at Fort Dix, N.J.

Only then did the Weatherman faction mutate into the Weather Underground -- and begin issuing pre-detonation warnings. Even so, it was still a matter of luck that there were no casualties.

As Todd Gitlin, a former '60s leftist and a historian of the period, put it: "They planned on being terrorists. Then their bomb blew up and killed several of them and they thought better of it. They were failed terrorists."” Washington Post

Barack Obama was right when he said that he was going to bring change. With the type of people that he has surrounding him, we are moving in the direction toward a more corrupt government. If you think it's bad now, wait till he starts making his judicial appointments. The people that he's going to want in the judicial system will make Ruth Bater Ginsberg look like Mother Theresa. God help us!

If it's any compensation for the Times, Murdoch just might get possession of the 'Gray Lady'.

I think that the Democrats and some Republicans need to be more familiar with the Jeffersonian Concepts.

Why are there no statesman like this today???

Jefferson in some cases could be called a prophet.

When we get piled upon one another in large cities, as in Europe, we shall become as corrupt as Europe.
Thomas Jefferson


The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.
Thomas Jefferson


It is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debts as it goes. A principle which if acted on would save one-half the wars of the world.
Thomas Jefferson



I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.
Thomas Jefferson




My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government.
Thomas Jefferson


No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.
Thomas Jefferson


The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.
Thomas Jefferson


The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.
Thomas Jefferson


To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.
Thomas Jefferson


Very Interesting Quote


In light of the present financial crisis, it's interesting to read what Thomas Jefferson said in 1802:

'I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.'
