Camping at Muddy Falls: Gates, Soros, Jobs, Rappaport


steve clemons muddy falls.jpg
I was up recently visiting Swallow Falls State Park in Maryland — which claims to have one of the oldest unharvested spruce and hemlock forests in the region. Quite a beautiful place.

I saw this historic marker up there noting that Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, Harvey Firestone, and John Burroughs had camped in August 1918 and July 1921 up at the top of the falls.
Just made me wonder what a new group of campers committed to changing the habits of the world might look like — maybe Bill Gates, George Soros, Steve Jobs, Andy Rappaport, John Doerr, Eric Schmidt?
There are probably many others who have the vision and wherewithal to shape the world, but it’s clear to me that very few of them are Senators or Congressman or Presidents or Cabinet Secretaries.
Let me take that back. To be honest, I think Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton are doing constructive things in the world. The Carter Center has really made some important strides in global conflict remediation, despite Dick Cheney’s best efforts — and Bill Clinton’s Clinton Global Initiative looks increasingly like Habitat for Humanity times a thousand. Richard Nixon changed the world. So did Roosevelt, Truman and Eisenhower.
And George W. Bush has changed the thoroughfares of global affairs in shocking, unconstructive ways.
So, I correct myself about Presidents. That job does matter.
Just an observation.

    hey Finest, a huge chunk of Henry Ford’s wealth, in the form of the Ford Foundation – I think the biggest foundation in the USA (before Gates/Buffet) is in the hands of left wing radicals that fund every liberal/left group under the sun and including Palestinian organizations that engage in anti-Israel activity.


  5. Finest says:

    In August 1918, and again in July 1921, one of the most virulent and dispicable anti-semites of this or any other age, Henry Ford, and company encamped here by Muddy Creek Falls. Because of the ensueing World War and slaughter of 6 million this miscreant’s antics added to we will be bulldozing this site and sowing the ground with salt. We fervent hope never to see his like again.
