  1. It’s wonderful that you are getting ideas from this paragraph as well
    as from our argument made here.

  2. Working as an active duty Marine in CID (criminal investigation division) in Southern California in the 67-70 time period, I saw exactly what JWR describes. Seeing how the leftist media and politicians have idolized and canonized people like Bill Ayers is proof enough that the left sanctifies violence when perpetuated by their own, evidenced by the support shown by some media and politicians for the individual who recently gunned down several republicans in Washington DC. This repeat of history is going to be even more violent.
