In my world, there is a very big difference between fact and opinion, but in this world, the two are often blurred, and this thread is a prime example
To wit: We do know that there is a relationship between Obama and Ayers. We do not know the full extent of that relationship. We know that Obama
worked with Ayers. We know that Ayers hosted at least one fundraiser for Obama, and has personally donated to Obama's campaign. We know Obama and
Ayers live in the same neighborhood, and that their children attend the same schools. This is fact. How we characterize their relationship is
Likewise, we know that Obama is associated with a few other people whose characters we might question; including Rev. Wright, Jodie Evans, Tony Rezko,
Rahid Khalidi, Raila Odinga, Khalid al-Monsour. Obama's associations with these people is fact. How we characterize the relationship is opinion.
Many people feel not enough has been done by either the media or the DNC to get out the facts about Obama, empowering us to make a decision based on
the facts and just the facts. In fact, the media has neglected to cover many disturbing stories about Obama at all.
1. The Phil Berg lawsuit, challenging Obama's status as a natural born citizen, eligible to run for President.
2. Charges made by Larry Sinclair, and the subsequent abuse and bullying endured (including his arrest by the DA in Delaware, who just happens to be
Joe Biden's son).
3. Obama's full medical records, including any and all health risks from smoking cigarettes, as well as the illicit drugs he has consumed.
4. Anti-Obama websites being taken down via cyber-attacks by Obama supporters.
We, the people, are not being served well by our Fourth Estate. Neither are we serving ourselves well when we accept such drivel, and we do not
demand the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.
This is not denying ignorance, but feeding ignorance. We can do better. If not, and we lose our democracy, it will be our own fault.
