The FBI of King's time operated with a whole different agenda than today's FBI. Apples and Oranges my friend.

I don't know, but the head of the UAW is pretty well-paid. He makes enough money to eat in fancy restaurants, but not enough to buy a nice suit to wear to said restaurants (we saw him at the restaurant where we had our Christmas luncheon last year, which my supervisor paid for out of her own money).

Yeah but they went after King because Hoover thought he was a communist and radical.

Especially since he's a close friend of Obama's. I suppose that makes this even more unfair, as the the government of the wealthy is investigating a friend of an impoverished former community organizer with a penchant for Kobe beef. :rolleyes:
