Somewhere in the great beyond, Abbie Hoffman is shaking his head in bewilderment
Posted by Jill | 2:29 PM
Abbie Hoffman was tried for conspiracy for less than this:

When leftists talked about revolution in the 1960's, we were called traitors. Today when the right wing does it, it's called patriotism.

Why is that?

America is a Republican country. Everyone else is allowed to speak and live only as long as they toe the Republican line.

This has been another episode of simple answers to complex questions.

Probably for the same reason that the Dixie Chicks were un-American for criticizing George Bush while Limbaugh is a hero for wanting Obama to fail.

I just don't know what that reason is yet.

1960s leftist revolutionary I will call them what they are Marxist insurgents. Look into the historical record they were often run by the KGB.
How is this not treason?
They conspired to take the product of labor to give it to the idle and take it for their own. How is this not theft?
Ayers and his Maoist pals even planned reeducation (let us be honest death) camps. How is this not Treason and conspiracy to commit murder.
Don't trust me look in to it for yourself.

And you have a problem with people that refuse to be stolen from anymore?

You need to stop before your "social justice" starts something that folks like myself can't stop! Your potential opponents value freedom and achievement more than you value your beliefs.
Let us be honest again you have few positions you will not abandon if it becomes inconvenient.

Your "reasonable regulation" is their "intolerable usurpation." Do you really want to see what happens when they become convinced that it is time to resist or be enslaved?

Please stop poking the hornets nest With hope, Happy D
