We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Wow! I'm speechless. Having read this, I feel powerless against the Left. I am afraid even those who consider themselves Leftists and are ignorant of this long-term strategy are powerless against these monsters.
These people dwell so far down in the recesses of the Republic that it is unlikely that a light can be found bright enough to shine on their tactics and reveal the connections to Obama.
If that's what you want, Jon, then make sure to vote for McCain. Obama is part of the Alinsky/Gramsci-type strategy, was trained by his mentor in Hawaii, a small-c communist and adherent of Alinsky and his overriding aim is to redistribute the incomes of the rich to all those folks who didn't make the effort to build the fortune. And no, I don't have a fortune. We have a modest income and Social Security. But I fiercely believe that the chance of each of us to, by our own efforts and sweat, to make more than our neighbors is what fuels the engine of free enterprise and helps to make us one of the most powerful nations in the world. And I want this to keep on happening for all of you when I have shuffled off this mortal coil.
I wrote an article about how Obama has been part of the Cloward Piven strategy for most of his professional life. See it at American Thinker:
or on my blog. It expands on the Discover the Networks revelations and adds many links and explanations.
Jim Simpson's article on the Cloward/Piven model is first rate and should provide hope for Pajak. As Mr. Simpson suggests in one of his other articles for AT, "we cannot afford to quit." We will never quit. Until more of our people recognize Obama and his thugs for the totalitarian he is and what they are, it will be extremely difficult.
SDS never went away and now we must deal with it. We will!
Marianne, for the sake of all of us, please don't plan on checking out just yet. Inspiration is difficult to come by and you provide it better than anyone.
What I want to know is: is Obama hiding his Columbia U. years because we would see classes loaded up with radical courses related to this kind of far leftist BS? "Columbia University sociologists Richard Andrew Cloward"
My bet is yes.
This Sun article is focused on grades. I don't think Obama would withhold info from Americans if it was just grades. I bet it 's that it a record that points to a super leftist eductaion.
"The Obama campaign has refused to release his college transcript, despite an academic career that led him to Harvard Law School and, later, to a lecturing position at the University of Chicago."
"The Obama campaign declined to comment for this article and did not offer an explanation for why his transcript has not been released."
Should the unthinkable occur and the Obama(Ayres)/Pelosi/Reid group take command, surely there's a Cloward-Piven angle that we can implement over the next four years? Who will they kick if they can't provide adequate mental-health services for every child diagnosed with ADHD? If they can't provide adequate health services for every hangnail? If the infrastructure doesn't get perfected and there are still potholes? What if we hold them to their "All politics is local" mantra and insist that local school boards be given power over curricula?
The possibilities seem to be endless...conservatives don't have to be the "stupid party" forever!
