George Soros

George Soros has come into the news again. It seems that one of his foundations donated $20,000 to Lynne Stewart's defense fund. A jury found Stewart guilty on five counts of defrauding the government, conspiracy, and providing support for terrorism. She faces sentencing on July 15, 2005; she may receive up to a 30 year prison sentence, which, at her age, may well be a life sentence.

I would defend that Mr. Soros's right to contribute to any cause he deems worthy, but I would ask you, gentle readers, to start investigating the causes that he does deem worthy, and take that into account when you learn that he is championing an issue or a political candidate. It just may be that it's not an issue or candidate that would serve your best interests as a free and independant citizen.

Update: Well it didn't take long to find another Soros story of "backing the wrong horse".
This time, he is applauding the Spaniards as having the correct approach to dealing with terrorism.

Let's see...The US gets hit and responds with tough actions, and hasn't been hit again, either here at home, or on foreign soil, and it seems at first look to be changing an entire region of the globe to a more democratic bent; Spain experiences a major terrorist attack and retreats to the homeland, and has experienced several terrorist events since....Seems to me that Mr. Soros is incorrect in his assertion that the US has just engendered more terrorists, but thats just my opinion. I prefer to deal with facts and results rather than feelings and "everyone knows memes" as Mr. soros does.

Just for curiosities sake, I wonder just how much Mr. Soros stands to lose if the countries of the ME really do go democratic? Is it monetary loss, or just the loss of his idiological compatriots?

"I would defend that Mr. Soros's right to contribute to any cause he deems worthy,..."

It's his money he can do with it as he wishes. If he backs the wrong horse, he can deal with the consequences.

You would think they could spend a couple hundred on Electrolsis for the old crone.
She looks like Helan Thomas lezbo Sister.....
But she really has a beautiful mind....
And Wanda as always Soros is on the wrong side...
