An ill wind blowing

In the '60s a group of terrorists called the Weathermen made a bid for anarchy with homemade bombs. One of their recipes failed in 1970, killing their own members in Greenwich Village, though this was not their aim; they had wanted the concoction to kill police in New Jersey. While the bumbling bomb makers missed the Garden State police, they did end up killing police in New York, when they pulled off a Brinks truck robbery, which resulted in the deaths of the guard and two NY State Troopers. In 1980 William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn turned themselves in. But they got no prison time, thanks to the left wing ideology in the courts. In fact, they got lucrative gigs at left wing Chicago schools and lots of speaking royalties. Maybe Osama bin Laden is next on the ex-terrorist circuit. If he is, he might be warmly welcomed by Barack Hussein Obama, who was so welcomed by Ayers and Dohrn. They served together on the board of the Woods Fund of Chicago (1999-2002), and Obama was introduced to left wing power brokers by these two idiots. True to form, Obama stabbed his mentor, Alice Palmer, in the back and got her thrown off the bandwagon. Serves her right though, as she it was who initially introduced Obama to the terrorists. Ayers, during his term on the board with Obama, was noted as telling the New York Times "I don't regret setting bombs; I feel we didn't do enough." What more would he have wanted to do? It sends a chill up the spine. He was responsible for 25 bombings and how many other acts of terrorism? Yet all that was not enough...
The weathermen of today have chilled out, but we do have to endure ad nauseum reports of global warming, or, as it has been rebranded, climate change. This nonsense has made a chunk of change for Al Gore, who travels around the world with his hot air telling people they ought not to fly. Your tax monies could all be cracked up to this addiction, and US industry could suffer terrible setbacks from it. Here in the UK misguided climate change activists got off after acts of vandalism in the southeast, the jury accepting a defense that they were trying to save the world or some such nonsense. Maybe they are all linked up, some lefty global network stretching from the caves of Afghanistan to the universities in Chicago - all grabbing for the White House.
Their friendships, however, seem to fall apart every so often. No surprise there, it just shows they are fair weather friends; and with such, we would not need enemies. This November if you're an American let's keep them out and get in the best we can.
