Bill Ayers the Puppy

Finally out of exile (just like the good ol' days eh Billy?), Bill Ayers is opening his gab, and gab he has. Speaking here in DC, he gave a speech reminiscent of an old man telling of his eventful youth in college. The difference? His youth involved planting bombs at federal buildings.

He generally came out of the gate with the attitude of, "hey, it was the sixties, everyone was doing it." Well, guess what champ, if by everyone you meant terrorists, then maybe you're right. He's been saying things like, "FOX News is trying to coin me as 'crazy' or 'extreme' is outrageous." ...I mean, I'd say trying to destroy federal buildings by force of explosion pretty much qualifies in my book.

Terrorism is defined by the U.S. Department of Defense as "the unlawful use of -- or threatened use of -- force or violence against individuals or property to coerce or intimidate governments or societies, often to achieve political, religious, or ideological objectives." I'd say that right up his alley, and if he doesn't classify as a terrorist, then we mid as well take a look at whether or not anything does. Maybe suicide bombers are just having a bad day?

Election Retrospect--RE Liberal University

Several things became blatantly apparent this recent election season--the first of which is the difficulty being in the minority on a predominantly liberal campus. I'm all in favor of zealously supporting your candidate, but I have to believe no candidate is worth fainting for. It's been said before and it's worth noting again, the truly best candidate for office isn't running.

It's unfortunate that Senator McCain didn't make it to the top office, but frankly I'm still in shock at how tight of a race he managed to pull off. I recall meeting Rick David, McCain's man-in-charge at the time, and the atmosphere of the event--we have a long trek ahead of us. And a long trek it was, but considering the political climate of the country, why did Senator McCain even stand a chance?

As a Democrat or liberal, I'd personally be both ashamed and befuddled at how, with every major issue favoring the left, the party managed to squeak by in an election that should have been a slam dunk from day one.

To recap election night in short, however, you'd have thought Jesus had returned to the world in a second coming and the sky was falling with honey and beer. As a matter of fact I recall a lot of beer being sprayed, albeit none from the sky, and certainly no honey as I recall no stickiness.

For all the conservative and Republican students out there, I felt your pain and it hurt. Fortunately for us, we don't pay taxes yet, for the most part anyway. Unfortunately for us, we will soon, and it will hurt all over again.

I'm Back

Get ready, new fire in the belly

Fallout

Not an easy day for me, but have faith. I don't know how or why, but have faith. It's the last true weapon of conservatives in America and no number of liberals can take that away.

Messy

All I'm going to predict for this election is a messy outcome, whichever way it goes. The court's are almost guaranteed to be involved and I won't be shocked if some violence occurs.
