European Jews Moving To Israel

Bibi Netanyahu invited Jews from France, then Denmark to move to Israel.  He offered a warmly stated relocation assistance program.  Immediately, the leadership of both countries asked their Jewish populations to stay and not migrate, basically saying that they are equal citizens and part of the cultural fabric of their country.

There seems some politics involved on both sides,  Bibi effectively touting that if you can't protect our people, we will be happy for all of them to live in the Jewish State.  His declarations may be mitigated by the upcoming elections in Israel....Maybe not! NBibi maybe just saying to come live where the controlling directive is "Never Again".

The heads of state in France and Denmsrk do not want to show that they can't protect a sector of their population as they would look weak and ineffective.  As well, they might not want to lose a largely well educated, professional and intellectual though minority population.  As well, they might simply be outraged and want to make this right.

Over the last few thousand years, the history of the Jews in Europe has been nothing short of one sick horror story after another.  There doesn't seem to be an end to targeting Jewish people; the only differences are horrors of scale.

So, for what ever the motive othat European leaders hsrbor at this moment, it changes with elections and anti semitism, bigotry and  brainless discrimination will again rear theirugly heads.  That is my prognosis.  It does not mean that they should pull up roots and leave.  If it were me, I'd protect myself, my community and the property therein or I would go where the operative culture is "Never Again". For every European Jew, it is a decision that needs attention.

The Moderate Saudis

Ol' King Abdullah died and world leaders went there to pay respects.  Well, I guess if you compare the despot to other leaders in the world, particularly Middle East Arab leaders, and move the definition fulcrum a half dozen sigmas to the right, he was moderate.

Let's use an article I read and give Abdullah the Merriam Webster definition of moderate.  All opposition party leaders were arrested and one had what they call a mental breakdown in a Saudi hospital.  I guess this is moderate if you live in Moscow.

Recently a Saudi woman was beheaded, being accused of witchcraft, not because she was caught practicing it, but because she owned books on it. How is this moderate?  I guess she could have been tortured first.

A blogger dared to question differences in Church and State was given a 1,000 lash sentence. The moderation here comes from the fact that he could have been given 5,000

A woman was arrested for bringing food to a Canadian woman who was dense enough to marry a Saudi, and who was locked up in the home by her husband without being given food or water..  She is accused of helping incite a woman against her husband.  I have mixed emotions on this one.  I understand that she did leave the cap off the toothpaste.

Thousands of Ethiopian workers were beaten and kicked out of the country because they were Ethiopian and no longer needed.  Didn't they learn anything from the Chinese?  They could have killed them and harvested their organs in a women's' hospital.

It was recommended to allow women to drive between certain specified hours and days.  King Abdullah said no.  Look guys, we want to be moderate, not freeking Liberals.

Although women are banned from working in most industries, Abdulah allowed them to work in lingerie stores so men would not have to wait on them.  Yes, everything in moderation.

Women were allowed to earn 1/3 of the total number of scholarships, but if they go overseas, they must take a chaperon along.  Honey, if you come to Cali, don't go go U.C. Santa Barbara.

And leaders from all over the world went there to "pay respect".

Heading Toward .a Fascist State

We seem to be heading toward a fascist state. I have hesitated about writing this for over a year simply because readers might think that it is an over-sensitivity owing to my progressive bent and personal background.  A 3rd reason is that the words fascists, Hitler, Reich are so horrific that there is a national hesincy to compare or label this on any person(s) or group even if they smell of the same symptoms. Lastly, I'm no historian no political or social expert.

Hitler came to power based on the repetition of lies and promises of taking a country back.  He used ideology, blamed minorities,  pushed nationalism and the opposition was cowered and too many were apathetic, and rich and influential people saw opportunity to expand their greed.  The seemingly moronic population saw a chance to improve their lives.  The ultra morons believed that God would provide.  The clergy were too involved in promoting their self interests, the courts either folded or were replaced by ass kissers.  There was a constant drive to use the military, to consolidate power.  People who carried out Fascism were social degenerates.  The leaders of the movement had mostly Getman sounding name.  Oh, tell me I'm wrong!

Does this sound familiar to you?  Germany killed, Republicsns  are suppressing. The few are consolidating power. They do not want controls and regulation.  Voting rights are being removed, women and minorities suppressed, lies are being repeated.  I can go on forever.  More and more legislators are to the right of Hitler, Tojo, and Mussolini.  The people are voting against their own best interest.  Millions of Americans have eroded their freedom, their economic status, their good paying jobs believing that anything is better than a woman.'s choice. 

If you don't like my opinions, don't read my writings.

AND HE IS UNDERGOING A CLEANSING

 I am looking forward to an all Republican Congress, with the same unbridled enthusiasm as my first Colonoscopy.  My only solace in life is having been put to sleep without that one Senator in attendance,  who wears, with a child-like sense of pride, her former occupation of performing castrations. It is an occupation no doubt instrumental in getting her elected in her state.  What better qualifications, could she possibly have to accomplish her stated goal of making them squeal.

For those of you not utterly frightened at America's prospects for the next two years, contemplate, if you will the potentiality of a Mike Hucabee Presidency in 2016?   I heard that he has divested himself of all earthly things, positions and titles in preparation.  It sounds like he was getting a cleansing..

Anyone have a Kleenex?

THE 2014 ELECTION REAL LOSERS

A friend of mine tried to console me over the Republican election sweep.  I went to sleep early last evening with hope in my heart so I could swim laps in the wee hours.  I came back to the horror of a red sweep in most states.

So he asked me who I really thought was a significant loss to our country. It was not a Republican. After all, they won!  It, in only a small way, was not the Democrats who lost the election. After all 
they tried their best though they were stupid enough to run from one of the very few best Presidents in the history of this nation.  They deserved to lose.

The monumental losers were the people who stayed home, who didn't vote. Yes, those who didn't care, who are lazy, who make excuses, will wonder why the Supreme Court votes ideology, why their parents may lose their pensions, their bank accounts, their Medicare, their Social Security.  They will wonder why unemployment insurance will diminish, why healthcare goes back to the vulture days, why immigration law is more punitive. They will curse because public education went down the tubes, because they are living in a police state

It will not occur to them that their individual and collective 
lack of vote caused this. They will not blame themselves for the misery they caused. They'll blame Washington.... The Washington they created by not voting. 

It wasn't billions in Citizen United money. It wasnt 6 years of orchestrated lies by Republicans, it wasn't voter supression or dirty tricks.  It wasn't the Republican do nothing Congress.  It was only you who stayed home.

Too Stupid, Too Brainwashed, Too Prejudiced to flourish.

Here is the Litmus Test to help you to vote

Do you hate welfare and cite that some people cheat?
Do you tell people that you know some use food stamps to buy beer?
Have you dropped out because both Republicans and Democrats are both bad?
Do you vote Republican because Dems gave black people equality?
Are you against a minimum wage increase?
Are you against equal pay for equal work?
Do you believe gays should not have the same rights as straights?
Are you O.K with privatizing Social Security and Medicare?
Do you believe the Affordable CarecAct should be defunded and repealed?
Should all abortion clinics be closed?
Should we give tax breaks to the wealthiest?
Do you believe it is O.K. to hamper people's vote on the guise that it prevents fraud.
Are you against contraception coverage in health insurance?
Was it O.K. For Congress to take so many weeks off?
Is it O.K. With you if billionaires buy elections as long as your party benefits?
Do you really believe that the U.S. Government is not handling Ebola correctly?
Do you believe that Bush and Chaney do not have blood on their hands?
Do you hate Barak Obama?'
Do you think Raegan was a model President?

If I have, more or less profiled you correctly, I need not add another hundred lines here, you are a card carrying Republican, and the best thing you can do for your country, for your flag, for your family, is to stay home and not vote.

CARTAGENA, COLIMBIA,

A town, on the Carobbean Coast Region, a port city.  Population like San Francisco with beautiful beaches, the color of the water is as exotic and romantic as the sunsets. There are tons for tourists and prostitution is legal.  So, let's say you are advanced scouts from the White House staff or the (shhhhh) Secret Service and you are a dude, and need to kill a few hours before being pressed into service, so you pick up the phone and dial 1-800-Rent-A-Hoe.

A sultry voice asks you to dial 1 for English, and then you hear a whisper telling you what is available and who.  A few items your wife would be loathe to do and some you would not dare ask.  In a knee jerk reaction, you pick one from Group A and three from Group B.  With a sigh, you took a pass on Group C because you're economic status would have to be Hedge Fund Manager or the equivalent. The 3rd item from Group B, is the Bavarian Basket Twist, the details of which are outside of your knowledge base, but you can't resist a lifetime of bragging rights.

Now, one of your buds thought the quote was in Pesos and Roxy said it was Dollares.  Roxy was overheard saying, "no senior, ju no pay only 300 Pesos for being bound and getting a good spanking"
and he stiffs her and she dials up the government Hoe Complaint Departmrnt and the supervisor (who has a different title in the U.S.), in turn, calls Washington and all hell breaks loose.

CARTAGENA.... Wonder what the weather is like in November?
