    Before I read that link, I'd only "heard" about it. What I heard was a lot less serious than what I read there. I thought he was just making coins on a small scale for businesses in his area. A barter system that government hates but people love.

    I watch his every move in terms of what he does, what he believes, and whom he surrounds himself with

    I guess I just don't see that many blanks. Here, maybe you can fill in a couple from all the ones you see.

    Well, from your link, here's Obama's response:
    I decry racism and anti-Semitism in every form and strongly condemn the anti-Semitic statements made by Minister Farrakhan. I assume that Trumpet Magazine made its own decision to honor Farrakhan based on his efforts to rehabilitate ex-offenders, but it is not a decision with which I agree.
    Certainly you don't disagree with that sentiment?

    I can't untangle these things for you. Sometimes political goals align. But again, there's nothing sinister about an anti-war rally. The "evil" is being painted in the margins.

    Have you seen Fahrenheit 911? It's a hack job on Bush. It's full of factual information loosely tied together to create the impression of corruption. He at once paints a picture of Bush as bumbling and indecisive yet conniving and subversive. But it's a not even close to a fair appraisal. It's a narrative based on Moore's own political beliefs, not Bush's.

    I see Beck's take on Obama in the same light. He uses similar tactics. And his conclusions are similarly cartoonish.

    I've said before that these guys are astrologers, not astronomers. They point at the stars and say: "Look, a communist!!" In reality, yes, the stars exist, but the connections being drawn between them are arbitrary and fanciful. There isn't really a lion up there.

Did you research everybody at the University of Chicago Medical Center where Michelle was Vice President for Community and External Affairs, or every administrator at the college where she was Associate Dean of Student Services and founded UChicago's Community Service Center? Are all of those people terrorists, black liberation theologists, etc. too or are they all just too normal to talk about?
    Did he seek them out and become more than just an aquaintance with any of them? Or were they just people he was forced to associate with?

    Did you guys ever find any proof relating to this thread or how this union could possibly even take down the stock market? Or is this another anti-intellectual thread (I'm going to wear that word out on you guys lol).

    He said these things. He advocated these things. Could he do them? Most probably not.

    It is noteworthy because he's an arrogant JERK with union connections who is telling people that our country's financial infrastructure should be demolished. And that with the help of unions and community activism groups, it can be done. Telling people they should stop paying their mortgages...stop paying their student loans...bring down the big banks is pretty radical, don't you think? What he's advocating can best be described as economic terrorism. It deserves to be front and center. It's unclear whether or not Lerner is still with the SEIU -- some links say he was fired; some say on administrative leave. But his assocation with SEIU at this particular time isn't doing them any good at all.
