  •  was thinking about Fred Hampton last week (3+ / 0-)

    As I watched Bobby Rush selling out to the telecomms last week on the floor of the House, all I could think was that that kind of action was probably why Bobby Rush was fine to head Chicago's Panthers but Fred Hampton had to be slaughtered in his bed.

    That's probably a bit unfair to Rush but his actions last week pissed me off. And I've long wondered where we might be today if some of those very charismatic leaders -- especially Fred Hampton -- hadn't been destroyed.

    We need not stride resolutely towards catastrophe, merely because those are the marching orders. -- Noam Chomsky
