Obama’s mate Ayers said a while back that he didn’t think they did enough (bombing).

“ ''I don't regret setting bombs,'' Bill Ayers said. ''I feel we didn't do enough.'' ”

I wonder what the friends, Obama and Ayers, think about this.

“He went underground in 1970, after his girlfriend, Diana Oughton, and two other people were killed when bombs they were making exploded in a Greenwich Village town house. With him in the Weather Underground was Bernardine Dohrn, who was put on the F.B.I.'s 10 Most Wanted List. J. Edgar Hoover called her ''the most dangerous woman in America'' and ''la Pasionara of the Lunatic Left.'' Mr. Ayers and Ms. Dohrn later married.”

“So, would Mr. Ayers do it all again, he is asked? ''I don't want to discount the possibility,'' he said.”

“Mr. Ayers, who in 1970 was said to have summed up the Weatherman philosophy as: ''Kill all the rich people. Break up their cars and apartments. Bring the revolution home, kill your parents, that's where it's really at,'' is today distinguished professor of education at the University of Illinois at Chicago.” [Quoted from nytimes.com]

“In 1981, Boudin was at the wheel of the getaway vehicle when the WU [Weather Underground - the same group as Ayers] held up a Brinks truck and stole $1.6 million. Her colleagues killed the driver and gravely wounded another guard in the course of the robbery. They then transferred to the U-Haul truck that Boudin was driving. When the U-Haul was stopped by police, Boudin got out of the cab with her hands up and urged the police to lower their weapons. When they did, six of her heavily armed accomplices jumped out of the back of the truck and gunned down two of the officers.

“ Boudin, a cradle communist (her father was Fidel Castro’s lawyer, her uncle was I.F. Stone), was 38 at the time of the Brinks attack — not a youth. She spent the next 22 years in prison after pleading guilty to felony murder and she is now an adjunct professor of social work at Columbia University.” [Quoted from worldtribune.com]

Perhaps whoever did the Boston bombing will become a ‘distinguished professor’.

sarah palin on obama and a few other time-serving spinners

How embarrassing it is when a politician tells the truth.


25:44 mins

About 12 minutes in, Gov. Palin makes a double-barreled, visual joke poking fun at recent policy and incidents with soft drinks.

New York Mayor Bloomberg has made a nanny-state edict that New Yorkers may not drink sugary soft drinks from giant-sized cups. Senator Marco Rubio has received negative comments because he took a drink during a recent speech.

obama’s corrupt chicago politics

“In "Boomtown," a blockbuster one-hour investigative special that aired Friday on Fox News' "Hannity," Peter Schweizer, president of the Government Accountability Institute GAI), and Steve Bannon, Breitbart News' Executive Chairman, revealed a study discovered that for every dollar corporations spent on lobbying in 2004, they received $220 in return.”

“Schweizer noted that for corporations, lobbying is now "a lot more profitable than buying or creating a new good." He said 50% of corporations now have an ex-politician on their boards. General Electric, he said, spends $100,000 every single day to influence and lobby Congress.”

“He also said that 30 major corporations spend more on lobbyists than they pay on taxes.”

“D.C. is the 4th fastest city in the country at minting new millionaires. Average income among the top 5% of Washington households is $473,000. That’s the highest among the 50 largest U.S. cities. Average income among the top 20% of D.C. households is higher than in every city except San Francisco. Between 2007-2008, the amount of money spent on lobbyists jumped by almost $500 million—the biggest jump in the last 15 years by far because of bailout money. Only Atlanta and Boston have greater income divides than the D.C. area.”
