FRSCitizenJournal: Guerrilla Resistance: Symbionese Liberation Army: A Socialist Political Cult



The Symbionese Liberation Army or SLA for short was a Socialist Political Cult based in California in the early and mid 1970s. That set down to bring down American Capitalism, which is a big reason why they kidnapped Patty Hearst who later became part of the SLA herself and bought their propaganda and so fourth. And was even part of their operations and through her free will, not by force she bought into what they were trying to accomplish. Going from kidnapped victim to criminal and she was only originally kidnapped because she's the daughter of Randolph Hearst, the multi millionaire, perhaps billionaire in today's money. And the SLA saw Randolph Hearst as part of the problem, working for Corporate America to hold average Americans down and one thing that they were trying to accomplish. The SLA, was to not just collect ransom from Mr. Hearst for his daughter Patty but to get extort other money from him to be used to take care of the under served in America. The SLA were Classical Socialists who saw American Capitalism as a threat to the country and that Corporate America needed to be taken down and that our country needed to start over. And start a new American Revolution.

The SLA actually did some good things, like put together food and clothing drives for the needy. The problem is they did it all through extortion, the classic rob Peter to pay for Paul and they were criminals, terrorists even that would attack people, including robbing banks. So they could take care of people who were left behind in society and would've been much better off. And the country would've been much better off if they were Community Organizers, who served the under served in America or had gotten involved in Progressive Politics.

FRSCitizenJournal: ABC Sports: NFL 1984: MNF: Chargers @ Raiders: The Great Frank Gifford With The Call



A great AFC West Rivalry the Chargers and Raiders, that sorta lost some steam in the mid and late 1980s. When both clubs slipped into mediocrity. This was also not a great time for ABC Monday Night Football, Frank Gifford was still a great announcer but Howard Cosell was no longer on MNF. And they were trying new people every season like OJ Simpson and Joe Namath and struggled to find that right mix. Until 1986-87 when they brought in Al Michaels and Dan Dierdorf to go along with Frank Gifford.
