He was with Harry Bridges an Australian born leader of the International Long Shormen's Assiciation who was accused of being a communist. Now think John Kennedy.

He and his friends, that is now Jerry would get their ph'Ds and than have a chair at harvard. In the seminary, Jerry met a West point graduate , wore black pants and black jackets,- now think Al-Qaida.noteB/Brown, Jerry Brown, Yhe Philosopher Prince, page 16-27. After 2 years he took a permanent vow to the Jesuit order. So this makes him a Jesuit!. His friend spoke of how it was like a communist prison,- think John Kennedy again. Jerry finds ways simmular to Buddhism. Jerry and his friend decide to drop out and left to enroll at the University of California at Berkely,- now think Al-Qaida training camps. Jerry enlisted at Yale Law School with a friend in 1961 and graduated in 1964. He became a law clerk to justice Mathew Tobriner in California. He spent time with the Kennedy"s in California with his father,- now think communist and Kennedy assassination. He became secretary of State in 1971, was Governor in 1975-83 and mayor of oakland in 1998. Now think assassination attempt on Regan. He will be our next Governor of California. Now think Germany, England Royal family and Al-Qaida with Osama Bin laden and Geo W Bush.
