Haters everywhere

Eldridge Cleaver, one of the founding, guiding members of the original Black Panthers, fled the US to avoid legal charges and went in to exile overseas.  After some years of seeing the reality of the free exercise of the principles of communism and socialism, he came back and asked that the authorities give him whatever sentence they deemed necessary.  He said at the time that he had figured out it was better to be in jail in America, than a free person anywhere else in the world. And he got religion. And he became a republican.

Must have been a hater.

3rd career and 2nd childhood. Spends spare time repairing old things. Aspires to burn more gasoline, gunpowder, and ink in pursuit of slowing down. Child of the 60s and aspiring student of history. No desire to see us repeat the failed social experiments that keep failing for lack of human beings that meet the left wing standards and have to be killed off. Did engineering long enough to realize that very little is new and the wheel does not need to be reinvented.
