Regarding Barack Obama's choices for various positions in his administration, William Ayers had this to say: (12/27/08)...
"I would have picked (Linda) Darling-Hammond (for Education Secretary), but then again I would have picked Noam Chomsky for state, Naomi Klein for defense, Bernardine Dohrn for Attorney General, Bill Fletcher for commerce, James Thindwa for labor, Barbara Ransby for human services, Paul Krugman for treasury, and Amy Goodman for press secretary. So what do I know?"
Bernardine Dohrn, September 1969.
Social Security: The Greatest Ponzi Scheme:
Dr. Walter E. Williams said on the Rush Limbaugh program today: (123108)
"Social Security is a ponzi scheme identical to Madoff's. Rather than generate wealth through productive investments, both schemes transfer wealth from newer investors to older investors."
Bernard Madoff in happier times
Bobby Rush, Illinois Congressman and former Black Panther, plays the race card:
"Let me just remind you that there presently is no African-American in the U.S. Senate ... I will ask you to not hang and lynch the appointee as you try to castigate the appointer. I don't think that anyone -- any U.S. senator who's sitting in the Senate right now -- wants to go on record to deny one African-American for being seated in the U.S. Senate."
