Mrtraveler01: relcec: Mrtraveler01: relcec: at least the editorial board is up front about their objections.

Well no farking duh dipshiat, that's the point of editorials.

the point of editorials is to persuade - not open their hearts and tell the truth, you f*cking imbecile.

and it is therefore unusual to see them telling the unvarnished truth, that they only object to rich guys spending money when the rich guys happen to disagree with them, when the truth is they are so transparently capricious and hypocritical.

I get the point that you disagree with the editorial but don't act so shocked and outraged when an editorial *shock* has an opinion that might be different from yours.

Editorials don't always agree with you.


An editorial is no place for opinions!

Infernalist: relcec: DavidVincent: zetar: Adelson is the one Jew out of a 100 that makes life miserable for the rest of us.

As my sister said, "That way lies the camps."

true dat.

Had Jews like him in Germany too. WWI war profiteers, etc.

heh, as always the inveterate racist that accuses the jews of bringing the Holocaust on themselves and the liberals are on the exact same page.

He didn't say that. Don't put words in his mouth.

What he 'did' say was that there were war profiteers in WWI that happened to be Jewish. This is not a lie, nor is it an anti-Semitic statement, it's simple reality.

It's not saying that the Jews brought it upon themselves, but it IS saying that when Hitler said that there were Jew war profiteers, he wasn't lying, he was simply using that as an excuse and scapegoat to murder the entire Jewish population.


yes, krupp was a german jew. maxim was a german jew. mauser was a german jew. rheinmetall was a jew.
wait, none of them weer germans or jews.

and I know exactly what david vincent is saying. he is saying the jews brought the holocaust on themselves. you're a f*cking straight up idiot if you think he is just helpfully pointing out the truth about what brought the holocaust on to the jews.

His intent is irrelevant when it comes to the issue at hand. That being, you putting words in his mouth.

You insisted that he said something that he didn't. I merely corrected you on that.

Also, no one ever said that all war profiteers were Jewish, only that there 'were' some. And there were.

So, in conclusion, you mad bro?

I don't know what could be more delicious ironing than to have a guy make billions off of the gambling habits of millions of Real Americans and turn around to use that money to further a set of policies that is diametrically opposed to their well-being.

But, if you think about it, gambling and supporting tax cuts for the rich are part and parcel of the same magical thinking:

"If I win big on this slot machine I can be rich and retire!"

"When that happens I don't wanna pay taxes!"

"C'mon, slot machine, show me the munnies!"

It was an American uniform, although my wife was in the IDF and one of my daughters was in the IDF ... our two little boys, one of whom will be bar mitzvahed tomorrow, hopefully he'll come back-- his hobby is shooting -- and he'll come back and be a sniper for the IDF.

"Do you realize how many millions of dollars I spend every year on taxes for educating people? And why? So they can complain about how much money they're not making. All the jobs are going overseas, where a trained monkey could read symbols and push f*cking buttons. Stop spending all this money on education, the people will work for cheaper, and we'll get all those jobs back, and you won't have a bunch of smelly hippies sitting in parks thinking they know more about how to run things than I do.

Hey, everybody! Here is what I said:

One out of every 100 Jews is a real goniff. And because of that one goniff some of the goyim say that ALL Jews are bad.

When I was a kid my mother used to tell me that, "we Jews have to be especially good," for that very reason.

I didn't say anything about Jews being war profiteers (I don't know if that's true or not).

I've certainly known too many Jews who were slumlords. And some years ago there was a Jewish organization called, "Murder, Inc." that wasn't too nice, either.

So, what I'm saying is that it's people like Adelson and Bugsy and Lepke that make life very unpleasant for the rest of us Jews.

Okay? Everybody got it? Thanks.

If Obama wins he should take a "fend-for-yourself Israel" stance just to spite Adelson.

Obama has a chance to win this election but over time the GOP billionaires will win. Local and state elections will be swayed, then districts gerrymandered. Citizens United was an enormous victory for the 1% in the long term, them and their spawn. Yes there are left-leaning billionaires like Soros but most who hve the money on the left would rather feed the hungry or get innoculations for millions of destitute Africans than rig elections.

Koch's and Adelson's want nothing more than everything and they will have it.

Read, Nathan Englanders's, "What We Talk About When We Talk About Anne Frank." The basic theme is American Jews ask themselves, "if the pogroms come to the U.S. who among our goyim friends would hide us?" This is a very real fear.

Every Jew in America at one time or another has asked themselves, "If the camps start in America, who can I trust to hide me?"

People close to Mr. Adelson said that he wants to be certain about Mr. Romney's positions on key issues, including support for Israel against aggressors in the Middle East. Mr. Adelson has publicly criticized President Barack Obama's support of Israel as too weak.
Mr. Adelson has told friends that he intends to give at least $100 million to conservative causes and candidates this election cycle. He contributed some $250,000 to Republican Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin, who just won against a labor union-forced recall election there. [link]


Why doesn't he just move to Israel? It always upsets me to see Americans who put the priorities of Israel over their own farking country.

Besides, Israel is under control of a right-wing government already. What more do they want?

If I were a reporter, which I am not, I would ask Governor Romney this question. "Governor Romney, in your opinion what had President Obama accomplished to earn his election in 2008/"

I would assume Mr. Romney would say something like, "Nothing."

Then (continuing to play the part of the reporter) I would ask, "Governor Romney, do you think it is wrong to get rewards that you haven't earned?"

I would assume Mr. Romney would respond with something like, "Yes."

Then (still playing the part of the reporter) I would ask Mr. Romney, "Governor Romney, since Mr. Adelson has provided you a substantial reward that you have already earned, what have you promised to Mr. Adelson?"
