I was unaware the President was interviewed on WABC radio this morning with Rudy Guiliani and Dr. Maria Ryan. This article gives a summary of what he said.

Davod, I thought even the single panel was oddly funny, with the blue fish carrying what I took to be a tackle box.

This may be an inappropriate question - but can someone explain to me where the hatred of Jews came from? Why did Hitler go after them? Why is there still anti-semitism? I don’t get it. As I often say, I’ve always thought differences are the most interesting thing in the world, so things like that totally escape me. Is it because they are generally very successful? Or some have bigger noses? Or don’t believe in Jesus? It’s mind blowing.

"I wish I knew what I really think about the vaccine"

One way to think about it is to consider your personal danger from the virus ... how likely to be exposed, how likely to become infected, a guess at the mortality risk, and don't forget an assessment as to whether or not you've already had it (perhaps asymptomatic? perhaps a mild and undiagnosed case?)

Once that's done think of the danger from the vaccine. A pretty small chance of mortal danger, I would think. A larger chance of some inconvenience.

Finally, throw in the factor of having a chance to be sand-in-the-gears. To be truculent. To avoid cooperating with our government.

CCGirl

“I think Trump's inroads into minority votes was about half Trump and half minority voters sick of the increasingly blatant infantilizing patronizing progs.
The whole privilege shtick is a political cul de sac for minorities that grants total power over their fate to whites.”

I agree, 100%. I think under Trump many had opportunities, and they opened their eyes. People have never been stupid, but they have been oppressed. If anything happens in the weeks going forward it has nothing to do with race and all about status. I can’t imagine repression will be tolerated here. Jeepers, gun sales have been through the roof since Obama’s inauguration. Do you think people will just take this “complete transformation of America?”

bubarooni

Jane, they hated them for the same reason Dems hate asians. They both are industrious peoples and are thus convenient foils for those who seek to sow dissension and division.

Narciso

It is largely irrational as are most prejudices, (the local councils did demand hiz death for scriptural reasons. But he had to die to validate isiah and form the new covenant. The romans carried it out.

Momto2

Welcome home to Frederick ~ There's nothing like having your kids home for Christmas!

Narciso

That was the tent peg i think that point really didnt apply till late into the middle ages. The romans hated them because they ultimately wouldnt acknowledge emperors authority. Jesus told them it would all come to naught yet the sicari thought to challenge the greatest power yp to that point (bad idea)

Narciso

Then there is that ekement of industriousness (the chinese in countries in south asia) have that problem to a much smaller extent.

So what propelled Hitler to wipe out Jews? What was the threat?

Narciso

His own inadequacies masked by the protocols the diatribes of thr mayor of vienna some might say even some of msrtin luthers own statements late in life.

Stephanie Nene Not Your Normal Granma

Mrs. Yetta Rosenberg gets off the plane in Miami and, being tired from the flight, goes to the first hotel she sees in order to get a room. She walks up to the desk and tells the clerk, "I'm Mrs. Yetta Rosenberg, and I desire a room for de night."
The clerk looks disdainfully at her and coldly says, "I'm sorry, madam, but our hotel is "completely booked."
Just then, a man with his suitcase in hand, drops his key and a check at the desk, and heads for the door. "Oy, vot luck, says Mrs. Rosenberg. "I can take 'his' room."
"I'm sorry, madam," says the clerk, "but I thought you understood my meaning. To be blunt, we do not cater to Jews."
"Jews?" exclaims Mrs. Rosenberg. "So, who's a Jew? I'm a Cat'lic."
In obvious disbelief, the clerk asks her, "If you're a Catholic, then answer this question: Who is the Son of God?"
“Dot's easy," says Mrs. Rosenberg, "Jesus Christ."
The clerk, still not convinced, then asks, "Who was Jesus' mother and father?"
"Mary and Joseph," replies Mrs. Rosenberg, testily.
Then the clerk asks, "And where was Jesus born?"
"In a manger in a barn," answers Mrs. Rosenberg, becoming agitated.
"And why was Jesus born in a manger in a barn?" asks the clerk.
"Cause a schmuck like YOU vouldn't rent a room to Jews!!!"

Narciso

Its really more about pretexts, than anything else jane it was worse in czarist russia during the slavophile period as well as post dreyfus france. Although the time around the crusades were pretty regretable in spain the reconquista drove the jews out along with the moors.

Melinda

Two things are the common beliefs for that. First, their history competed with his new interpretations. Second, it’s believed he felt his mother’s death was directly associated to her doctor’s Jewish affiliated history.

Narciso

I dont he needed an incentive to hate, as stated earlier it was deeply engrained in german culture notably by luther, in karl luegers vienna it was a rather virulent strain.

Wow

Narciso

I think goldhagen for one overplayed that chord but it was a strong foundation to build on sadly.

CCGirl

Melinda, we sell a folding ruler. I can get a Lufkin “Red end engineers folding rule, wood 5/8” x 6’.” Is that what you are asking? Otherwise I am confused.

And re, Hitler, it seems the Jews were predestined to be persecuted. They certainly were persecuted pre Christ, and after. These days I think of the time the “Chosen People” were enslaved in Babalonia for 500 years, and I wonder, are we headed down that road again?”

I don’t think so. There will be an awful coming to terms prior to anything like that, which is why our Bill of Rights is so important.

hahaha, I kind of like this:

"Finally, throw in the factor of having a chance to be sand-in-the-gears. To be truculent. To avoid cooperating with our government."

Narciso

True and then you have the persians and before that the egyptians, now it kind of had to that way, aeons ago moses was raised in the pharoahs palace, whereas jesus had ti come from humble surrounding even though his lineage went back to david.

CCGirl

Yes Narc.

Jane, the Jews have been prosecuted for ages, and I do not know why. But then God said they were “His chosen people.” Jesus was a Jew. He was punished. You know the rest, and I suspect you know the history.

It’s a crazy story, but after having tried to disbelieve it, I now understand it to be true. I’m a terrible Catholic, but I try to live by the Ten Commandments. At this point, what else can one do?

Narciso


Well why let the truth get in the way

A significant number miss the entirety of the bible, speciallt where jesus was crystal clear about what was to happen, he spoke of how all the prophets had been treated then respected only in hindsight.

Tomorrow night I will post more interesting words, just to punish you all.

It’s the double end x46x that’s the speed tool for a finish carpenter.

Narciso

No its an important point there was persecution before and after, but the character of the second instant was greater.

Narciso

It is not lost on me, for instance that the ss st louis could not disembark in cuba and later this was one of the countries along witn argentina that voted not to recognize israel initially in 1947.

Narciso

We know why argentina did so, but there is less of an excuse.

Yes but they arent vaccinated eith the actual shot, otherwise they wouldnt be the control group

I believe what anonamom meant is that the pharmaceutical companies agreed that those who participate in the studies and are assigned to the placebo group will get the vaccine if it proves effective.

In any case, it's unethical to deny an effective treatment to someone in order to study the results. I seem to recall a Tuskegee study of syphilis that got into hot water for a very similar reason.

Narciso

Yes not in the first phase,

Pinandpuller

mr narciso

OK, here’s something I think is interesting to consider:

Bad things often happened to Judah and Israel because of their idolatry and unfaithfulness. For example, the 70 year Babylonian captivity. Here’s something I didn’t really think about until recently. The reason they were carried away for 70 years is because they ignored the Jubilee for 490 years.

Also note that Jesus said you should forgive your brother 70x7. You do the math.

Narciso

And what will be our fate, pin, have you considered that. We know anyone trading with china surrenders their ip. At the door.

I hope our President, per TMs post, will veto BOTH the obscene Defense Bill and the obscene new Stimulus Bill. I would say F U Mitch over the Blue State bailout in the stimulus but I haven't seen enough detail to be sure.
So I'll wait till then and say F U Mitch when it's confirmed.

Thanks guys for the information. None of it worthy of persecution of course. I suspect jealousy.

.. but can someone explain to me where the hatred of Jews came from?

Jealousy. When it comes to anti-Semitism, people are culpable because Jews are capable.

We normally do Christmas at our daughter's house in Pittsburgh (we do Thanksgiving at our house). We're probably going to call it off this year, despite that being exactly what state officials are urging, since both daughter and SIL are treating COVID patients and they don't want to infect us oldsters. SIL, who has seen the ICU where he works transformed into a COVID-only unit, says that four of his co-workers have gotten it recently, whereas not a single co-worker had gotten it previously. Daughter still wishes we could get together; it's a sad time we're living in right now, and I feel so badly for younger people who are being robbed of slices of life that are more important for them than time is to oldsters.

Assuming the inauguration of Biden takes place on schedule, the big question in my mind is how many Republicans will boycott. I don't even want to consider the answer because I don't need to add to my depression.

Pre Covid, Treasury gave money to the Fed. Fed gave it to banks. Banks gave it to us. Fed held the asset. We held the debt. Bad.

Now Treasury makes the Fed hold the debt & Treasury holds the asset. Good.
