Robert Redford, the wannabe Socialist Hollywood Icon has produced a movie that tries making these jerks look like good Americans who only tried to fix this country but made a few 'mistakes' along the way. I think it's called 'The Company You Keep'. Rewriting history is an old, old ploy of the Left. It's used on children and gullible adults.

Right, there is no difference between Bill Ayers the former leader of the Weather Underground & Boston Bombing which the Boston Bombing reminded me of Bill Ayers and Weather Underground tactics used in the late 1960 & early 70's which Bill Ayers & Weather Underground along with the rest of Radical Left at the time called Activism then and now they call it Terrorism and all started in Ann Arbor, MI on the Campus of the University of Michigan.

Weather Underground

The Weather Underground Organization (WUO), commonly known as the Weather Underground, was an American radical left organization founded on the Ann Arbor campus of the University of Michigan. Originally called Weatherman, the group became known colloquially as the Weathermen. Weatherman first organized in 1969 as a faction of Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) composed for the most part of the national office leadership of SDS and their supporters. Their goal was to create a clandestine revolutionary party for the overthrow of the US government

Your tantrums look out of place this morning. Somehow your hurt feelings seems petty compared to what is happening.

Now it is beginning to look that there was a bigger group than the two brothers. Someone trained them.

According to you, if I call someone a jackass its the same as calling them a turtle. After all turtles & jackasses are both animals.
But hey,. I understand. Someone so dumb & ignorant to post racial slurs can't be very intelligent.
athough iv never used a racial slur, would it make you feel better if I told you I think the white half of obama is as much of a pos treasonous bastard waste of human flesh as his black half? Now how can that be racist ? I treat both the exact same..

BillAyers never hurt anyone & placed his "bombs". His were small in nature. Placed where no one would get hurt. and certainly never contained shrapnel.

Is that different enough? Dumbass Jane?

I'll assume that you actually want to become educated & informed.

"Redistribution of Wealth"

In mathematics, a “distribution” is how certain attributes are ‘distributed” among a given population. For example, the Bell curve in grading is a distribution as it shows how grades are assigned in a classroom. A pie chart of the Federal income tax brackets & their accumulated wealth.

These are distributions.

If we go back 30 years & look at this wealth/bracket pie chart and compare it to today’s wealth/bracket pie chart we would find the following. The slice of the pie representing the wealth of the top bracket is a lot bigger than it was then, The slice representing the middle class brackets would be smaller.

This is because during these years the top bracket saw their wealth grow. The Middle class saw their wealth growth stagnate.

The top bracket did not necessarily take wealth from the middle class to grow their share. But rather as the wealth in this country has grown, the wealthy got most of that growth & the middle class saw little of that growth.

The distribution of wealth, that pie chart from above, changed throughout the years, The slices became different sizes. This change in distribution is called redistribution of wealth.

When we talk about “Redistribution of Wealth” in economic terms, we are talking about this change in the pie chart.

Right now, we have redistribution of wealth. It is the wealthy getting wealthier at a much faster rate than the Middle Class is accumulating wealth.

When Obama talks about the redistribution of wealth, he is talking about reversing that trend & returning to a pie chart more like in the past. Where the Middle Class shares more in the growth of wealth.

There is no taking from one & giving to another. That is not what “redistribution” means.

It means that as the wealth in this country grows, the Middle class would earn a bigger share of it.

So when you right wingers rant rave & run screaming through the streets how Obama is taking money from the makers & giving it to the takers, you just prove how uneducated, uninformed & ignorant you are on this subject.
