Am I the only one who feels this way?

I grew up hearing what is good for the goose is good for the gander. The following was located on True Slant regarding Andrew Joseph Stack whose daughter believes that her father is a hero:

"Bell can’t have it both ways. Only now will people listen, in her stunted logic, because of the terrorist act she disagrees with that her father committed that killed IRS employee Vernon Hunter. I also don’t know a lot of heroes who set their homes on fire with their wife and step-daughter inside. You don’t call someone a hero after they’ve committed a heinous act of terrorism that kills one person, injures others, and puts hundreds more at risk. It kind of detracts from their heroism of speaking out (especially when it appears that they were speaking out about nothing other than being a tax cheat who got caught)."

Now my questions is this, why is it OK for President Barack Hussein Obama to have a friend in William Charles "Bill" Ayers, co-founder of Weather Underground, who set off bombs and destroyed property to further his cause and made the following statement regarding his actions?

"I don't regret setting bombs" and "I feel we didn't do enough", and, when asked if he would "do it all again," as saying "I don't want to discount the possibility."

The liberal media cannot have it both ways. If it's OK for a liberal to create terror in furthering their cause, why not an average citizen? I'm still sitting on the fence on this one, trying to reconcile what pushed Andrew Joseph Stack to the point that he could not get any resolution with the issues he stated in his statement dated 2/18/2010.

I do know that when traveling in social circles that the natives are becoming restless and I'm not promoting violence but I also believe the words of Thomas Jefferson were not figurative but literal, "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants."

When will those who supposedly represent us, We The People" wake up and smell the coffee burning in the pot? VN8

I'll just keep it simple. Any act of domestic terrorism is un-American and disgusting. I condemn them all and don't want to play politics with this issue. We should never ever condone terrorism to make our points.

Good post. Stack was undoubtedly a wing or two shy of a full bucket. I think Ayers, OTOH, is in full control. I'm not sure what constitutes terrorism v garden variety criminal behavior or, more exactly, where the dividing line is. I suppose I would call Stack, like Ted Kaczynski, simply a criminal nut. Both did profess political motivations to their acts but in the end they were just f'n crazy. But Ayers is something different. And BO should be held to account for his friendship with the man.

I agree with Scalawag.
Both Slack and Ayers deserve scorn.

Lee has a point. Ayers, the whole Weather Underground, and all the associations they've made are to be considered heroes for the liberation of Americans from the shackles of free enterprise and, well freedom in general. Pfffffft.

I really don't think the urban decay that the liberals are spreading nationwide will last much longer. People can no longer identify the bad guy from the obvious evidence. Instead, it's a huge label-fest with the liberal pseudo-intellectuals apparently determining who the bad guys are. That sort of politics won't sit well for long, since we the people are far too smart and far too involved in our own destiny to simply hand our precious freedoms over to people like Obama, Ayers and the politics of fear.

Get it Obama? We don't WANT your socialism. Take it and your bomber boyfriends and go elsewhere!

Sheesh ... when doya think they'll get it?

Oh, and good work, sis ... keep the faith as you often tell me!!
