Here is a short interview with the now infamous Bill Ayers;

http://truth-out.org/news/item/8260-bill-ayers-on-the-coming-revolution

He makes many really interesting points, the main thrust is that putting your faith in a party, be it left or right, will not generate the change we all need. We MUST stay engaged, and continue to push for the changes we want. Nothing Occupy does not know, however there is a reason religious folks go to church on Sunday (or temple on Saturday, etc.) preaching to the choir is what keeps people focused and on the same page. I like what Bill Ayers has to say here and think it is well worth your time (all of 8 min.).

I really wish, Bill Ayers was whispering in Obama's ear. Wouldn't it be awesome if Obama actually was the radical left-wing anti-capitalist FoxNews insists he is? Instead of a bought corporate tool?

Lol, never actually thought about it but yeas if Obama was even half the 'socialist' the right continue to claim he is, even given than ample proof that he is noting more than a military/police state corporatist as he has proven in the last 4 years, perhaps we would have seen some improvements in the social and economic inequity we now experience.

I had never heard Bill Ayers speak before, and I must say he is very bright, clear, concise, and thought provoking. Highly recommend watching the above interview videos!
