Around the World Wide Web 57

1. Greg Ransom drops a bombshell about Barack Obama. After closely reading the Senator's autobiography, Ransom noticed some mysteries. Among them: Obama claims he was driven by his father's ideals -- but the content of those ideals is never revealed. Ransom did some research and found that Obama's father was an anti-American communist who advocated confiscating property and nationalizing foreign businesses, among other things.

Of course, any Republican who asks Obama about all this will be attacked by the left for "Swiftboating," "McCarthyism" and so on. But facts are facts. Obama grew up admiring his father's ideals, which were uncompromising, hard-line communism and which Obama avoided in his autobiography. What does Obama think of his father's ideal today?

2. What American knucklehead said this?

We've committed more war crimes almost than any nation in the world.

And this?

A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual death.

And what ignorant socialist railed about...

...capitalists of the West investing huge sums of money in Asia, Africa and South America, only to take the profits out with no concern for the social betterment of the countries.

Those statements all came from Martin Luther King, Jr. Jeff Cohen complains that King's anti-militarism is "silenced" today, but I think he should be relieved Americans don't know more about King. It's hard to worship an anti-American leftist as a saint.

3.  Comrade McCain wants to use state power to control how much money filthy capitalists can earn.

"If there's ways we can motivate shareholders and boards of directors to punish these people we should do it," the Arizona Republican said. "If there's ways we can prevent this from happening again, we should exercise those options."

Oh, excuse me -- he didn't say "control," he said "motivate." Yes, the power of the state's guns is an excellent motivator.

4. Liberals lay the "chickenhawk" line on the wrong guy.
