Victory Without the Results

Nearly six months after Morgan Tsvangirai and the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) defeated Robert Mugabe aka Comrade Bob in the presidential election a transition to the lawful new President has not occurred. The sticking point here may be that Comrade Bob's supporter's efforts at ballot box stuffing and voter intimidation were successful enough to require a run off between the MDC candidate and ZANU-PF's leader of thirty plus years Robert Mugabe. While Morgan Tsvangirai did withdraw his name from the run off due to voter and opposition intimidation.

Despite winning the Presidency and a majority in the representative body there has been no transition.

A compromise of power sharing had been attempted and agreed to on September 15th however the ZANU-PF is sabotaging negotiations on which Ministries will be held by MDC vs ZANFU-PF. Latest reports claim Morgan Tsvangirai is ready to boycott talks with ZANU-PF as they have been unproductive.

All of this occurs while starvation is hitting the common people of Zimbabwe. Once the breadbasket of Africa exporting food even during crises in the past such as the Ethopian famines, Comrade Bob's redistribution of the once efficient corporate farms, the industry underpinning Zimbabwe's economy, to ZANU-PF cronies has resulted in mass starvation and economic collapse.

Perhaps there is a lesson there for the electorate of a different nation that redistribution of wealth, or socialism if you prefer, results in economic collapse. t does not matter if the country is in South America, Africa, Europe or the Pacific Rim.

Weathermen Re-education Centers

Here is a must read article including an interview with a former member of the Weather Underground.

Read The Whole Thing.

As when I equated Ayers and McVeigh the only difference between these people and the enemies of our nation is competence.

Ayers and McVeigh

I should not be surprised that my fellow Americans are able to shrug off the acquaintance of presidential hopeful Barack Obama with William Ayers a leader in the Weather Underground domestic terrorist organization of the 1960's and 1970's.

Why it was forty years ago that William Ayers along with the other "Weathermen" attempted to bend the U.S. government and its people to their will with a campaign of terror. A handful of relatively unsuccessful bombings is easy to forget and move on about.

What is not said is that the only reason William Ayers did not serve any criminal sentence for his crimes was a judge throwing the case out on grounds of government misconduct.

Imagine if you will a different domestic terrorist let loose upon a legal technicality after his atrocity. Imagine rather than the bumbling and generally inept attempts by the marxist revolutionary wannabe the domestic terrorist in question was actually successful in his attaining his goals of mass carnage to get his message out.

Would you expect to see Timothy McVeigh celebrated by the intelligentsia after murdering 168 people including many children attending a day care center at the Murray Federal building? Would you expect to somehow not know that this individual was part of a group that was successful in murdering Men, women and children?

Ponder this; the intent of both Timothy McVeigh and William Ayers was the same, to commit an act of terrorism to get publicity for their agenda. That one was successful and the other was inept matters not.

Now think on who would associate with a Timothy McVeigh should he have been released on a legal technicality and was free to live his life unlike his victims. How could they not know who and what he was. Think on what group or individuals would associate themselves with that type of person.

Do you want them represented even obliquely at the highest levels in our government?

Righteous Fist In The Air

Go ye forth and read of the Racist Roots of Gun Control.

Those who have stopped by before know of my discussions of this topic on the past.

Gun control is not about firearms its about controlling people.
