   In order to understand what is going on today, it is imperative that we understand who is behind the chaos.  My President has surrounded himself with these people.  As a parent, I have always told my children that they are who they hang around with.  It is no different from my President.  So if you will bear with me, we will travel the arduous road to understanding.  This may take a little effort but it will be worth the investment.  Pay attention to the players in this information, because President Obama has surrounded himself with them.  His presidency is a long way from being over, and so is the "Occupation of Wall Street", if history is repeating itself.
  We will begin in the 1960's with the Weather Underground.  The following information has been taken from Wikipedia:
   " The Weather Underground Organization (WUO)... was an American radical left organization.  It originated in 1969 as a faction of Students for a Democratic Society" (SDS).  The national organization leadership of the SDS and their supporters were mostly who composed the Weather Underground.
"Their goal was to create a clandestine revolutionary party for the violent overthrow of the American government.
   The origins of the Weathermen can be traced to the collapse and fragmentation of the Students for a Democratic Society...During the factional struggle National Office leaders such as Bernardine Dohrn and Mike Klonsky began announcing their emerging perspectives, and Klonsky published a document titled "Toward a Revolutionary Youth Movement" (RYM).  RYM promoted the philosophy that young workers possessed the potential to be a revolutionary force to overthrow capitalism, if not by themselves then by transmitting radical ideas to the working class.  Klonsky's document reflected the philosophy of the National Office and was eventually adopted as oficial SDS doctrine.
   During the summer of 1969, the National Office began to split.  A group led by Klonsky became known as RYM II, and the other side, RYM I, was led by Dohrn and endorsed more aggressive tactics  such as direct action, as some members felt that years of non-violent resistance had done little or nothing to stop the Vietnam War.  The Weathermen strongly sympathzed with the radical Black Panthers....
  The SDS convention in 19969 produced a position paper outlining the position of the group that would become the Weathermen.  It had been signed by Daren Ashley, Billl Ayers, Bernardine Dohrn, John Jacobs, Jeff Jones, Gerry Long, Howie Machtinger, and more.  The document called for creating a clandestine revolutionary party:
  'The most important task for us toward making the revolution, and the work our collectives should engage in, is the creation of a mass revolutionary movement, without which a clandestine revolutionary party will be impossible.  A revolutionary mass movement is different from the traditional revisionist mass base of "sympathizers.  "Rather it is akin to the Red Guard in China, based on the full participation and involvement of masses of people in the practice of making revolution; a movement with a full willingness to participate in the violent and illegal struggle."'
   I need to stop here, but you can read the entire story on Wikipedia.  I will post about "The Day of Rage" in a latter post.
