Framed posters of Barack Obama, Che Guevara and Henry David Thoreau hang in the office of Lorain County Common Pleas Judge James Burge.The Journal link only shows a highly cropped image. I will place it here.
The judge, who is conducting hearings on the constitutionality of Ohio's method for putting prisoners to death, said he respects those who back up words with action and that Thoreau, the 19th-century philosopher, was his first role model.
''I tend to admire people who in my opinion go beyond their speech -- they actually do what they say,'' Burge said.
After winning election in 2006, Burge quickly showed his independence by filling two key positions on his staff with convicted felons, saying their legal experience made up for their criminal records.So, a hard-hitting judge hires convicted felons to be part of his staff and admires both Guevara and Obama. Thus there must be something similar between the two. Right? Could that be Communism and Socialism? Or just Communism? Or could it be the willingness to kill people when he does not get his way?
Please note all the Guevara and Pro-Communist\Anti-Capitalist propaganda that occurs during May Day (May 1 or pro-COMMUNISM) parades. And now, this respected judge sees a connection between Obama and Guevara??
