After some traveling around the United States for some time Rev, Jim Jones finally landed in San Francisco, where his (church) was to thrive amoung the LiberaL Progressives. Jones's church Known as the Peoples Temple......Jones convinced so many that he was the one to lead them to a better life and all they had to do was to follow him in every way... In the final act of insanity he lead almost one thousand people to an island called GUYANNA and set up "JONESTOWN"

.He was a real community organizer, and people were mesmerized by him.....Jones was a very accomplished speaker and was soon able to attract some influential people..at least at first......

..I hope that any one who has not read the story of this man ,would take the time to learn about him.......It boils done to a man with good speaking skills and the ability to convince people that he would think for them, and take care of them , Jones had an ego that was enormous and of course that, along with drugs in the end was his down fall.....Rev. Jim Jones is a perfect example of what happens when you turn your life,money, mind and soul over to one human being......It never turns out good.. Congressman Ryan and four reporters were killed that last day trying to rescue
them.

    Jones was not some self-proclaimed "prophet" or fringe religious leader. He was an ordained minister of the Disciples of Christ, a respected mainline denomination. At one point his congregation numbered 8,000. It was composed largely of poor African Americans.

    Jones cast himself as a politically progressive and was embraced by liberal politicians such as U.S. Representatives Phillip and John Burton, Assemblyman Willie Brown and Mayor George Moscone.

    Sir Bud.
    Thanx,you mean well I guess,but the gap between Conservatism and Fascism is the same as between Socialism and Communism.
    Democratic Socialism does not lead to Communism of course-just as Democratic Conservatism does not lead to Fascism.But if you insist to imply that Socialism is a step towards Communism,then use the same rule for the steps of Conservatism.One thing is for sure,you are indeed often anti social.

    Jones was a NUT case and personally I do not credit the such with being rational and sane,unlike you when it suits you that is,like with Obama I expect?.LOL.

    Any insane nutcase can put his or her name onto any piece of paper and register with anything.Those who want to believe that confirms his/her rational personal merits just want to use something to throw mud at something they dont like.Works against them ,as it shows just how desperate they are to find reasonable material.If Charles Manson had registered with the Democrats,that would be Hazels next blog to"prove"how insane the Democrats are.
