    I am curious as to who you are. Are you the big, bad, mean, coniving, terroists you wish to be? Or are you just another big mouth first amendment wanna be? Did you REALLY mean the things they said you’ve said about wishing you could do more in bombing all the sites and the damage that was done? If so, why aren’t you in prison? Do you hide behind your credentials and claim to be the innocent liberal who dares to speak out and challenge against the conservative side of issues? It seems to me, since you still live HERE in a free US, that you are mostly full of shit and don’t really want the change you seem to stand for. You just want to be recognized and heard as a sympathetic, “I care more than you”, kinda a guy. If you really are for socialism, why don’t you move you and your family to somewhere where your point of view is more accepted and since you are more “enlightened” than most, improve the conditions somewhere else? Or perhaps you’d like to wait till you children get out of private school? Seems to me you’re all talk. You would like to stand for freedom without actually giving any sacrifice for freedom. As long as you’re among the elitist group, who really will challenge you, right? If you’ve got a GOOD argument as to why, and not a selfish one, then by all means articulate it. In my opinion, you wouldn’t recognize sacrifice if it crawled up in your lap and called you Daddy.

    I also loved your responses in Tahar Ben Jelloun’s: Racism Explained to My Daughter. In fact, I used that book for a couple of semesters with undergraduate early childhood students. I especially love your book, A Kind and Just Parent; and I had great success using Teaching Toward Freedom with my undergraduate students.
    Keep on keeping on! I am so grateful you are out there broadening our perspectives and telling us the truth.

    Make sure only to post the comments that make you look good, Billy.

    Old “Bill Clinton” will be dismissed, and the useful idiot Tamarika will seem like good pr.

    Coward to the core.

    Does “A Kind and Just Parent” lovingly nurture his children to develop into a slimeball that declares war on his own country and sets bombs against his fellow citizens.

  7. ryan says:

    Hey Sam, you obviously haven’t done your homework. Bill never set bombs against his fellow citizens. The WU always went to great precautions to make sure there were never civilian casualties, which is much more than one can say in regards to the bombing campaigns simultaneously going on in Vietnam & Cambodia.

  8. CharlieMansion says:

    One of the WU bombs killed a puppy once. A poor little innocent.

    Please let us know at what college or university you propogate Willie’s crap. I want to make sure I never send my kids there. I’m sure just like Willie, you let your student’s minds be open to ideas, as long as they are yours.
