Pete Seeger was a raging communist activist. Glad he''s dead.

The State of the Union address was excellent; the TP, Republican, Fascist, Spanish wannabeRead More responses, were puerile, psychotic and putrid; however, they were thankfully all eclipsed by the Republican Grimm from NY – Don Corleone, Jr. or Chris Christie – typical Republican thug threats and attack on a reporter in front of TV cameras. Grimm later apologized for losing “his cool,” which is interesting, as he has never had any “cool,” only massive anger management issues. ~ The only things our great President Obama should be reminded of from the great Pete Seeger is: 1) Stand tall for your principles, and, 2) Don’t be afraid to fight. ~ Pete Seeger stood tall against the alcoholic buffoon from Wisconsin, Joe McCarthy, and his thug committee; President Obama would do well to do the same against the TP/GOP Congress, who’s only accomplishment in the last 5-years is to steal an annual salary of $174,000 from the taxpayers, just to say, “NO!”

He didn't live long enough to have done much to criticize. His legacy is based almost entirely onRead More his charisma and that of his immediate family. He was hardly what would be considered liberal or progressive by today's standards. He was the consummate "1%-er". As usual, the left is in love with the superficial image and a nebulous "vision" they credit him with. In truth, some of his most famous words don't even come close to meshing with today's progressive agenda - "Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country"? What could possibly be further from what we're seeing the left promote and demand currently?

John Wilson November 26, 2013 at 07:17 pm
The Anti-Alinsky – 1) Huffington post cites statements made by DOJ Holder, nothing fromRead More President Obama there, either on statement or policies YOU CLAIM HE MADE. 2) USA Today cites statements by DOJ Holder, other DOJ officials, and a senator; there is no statement made by President Obama, as YOU CLAIM HE MADE NOR ANY POLICY BY PRESIDENT OBAMA THAT YOU CLAIM HE MADE. 3) SFGate cites statements by DOJ Holder, nothing from President Obama there, either on statements or policy, YOU CLAIM HE MADE. ~ “Is that enough for you? I know your next twisted little thought is that this was Eric Holder’s decision, he couldn’t do it without some sort of approval from B.O.” ~ That’s quite an assumption…AND, it suffers from still an additional flaw: you providing absolutely no proof or evidence at all. President Obama has stated that he is in favor of flexibility of sentencing for certain drug(s) use and the lessening of strict mandatory sentencing in drug cases. [You can’t even provide any proof of that!] Furthermore, the 3-links only go to lessening of enforcement in the 2-states where Marijuana was voted legal by the population: Colorado and Washington. [All the law enforcement people I know from Milwaukee, Chicago and D.C., are pleased and really quite happy to not have to be chasing people for smoking Marijuana, and that has been their position for years.] ~ Your original statement was that President Obama made “statements to stop” the enforcement of Marijuana laws, AND, he had created “Policies” to enforce those statements. I don’t see any proof of that, because it is simply another TP/GOP LIE… ~ I hope you and your family have a very safe and happy Thanksgiving… Please stay away from ovens, as I’m sure that if you get too close to one, someone may mistake you for a real turkey, and then you are dinner. I’d miss the humor you supply, as apparently you can’t tell the difference between Eric Holder and Barrack Obama… Is this one of those, “they all look the same kind of things?”

He needs to take responsibility for being the decision maker, as well as part of the cause of the shutdown!!!

Who knows, the kid I'm talking about hasn't caused any trouble as far as I can tell, so maybe he'll get a decent job working to combat hacking in the business world.
