It's the same in any lingo

בַּת-בָּבֶל, הַשְּׁדוּדָה: אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיְשַׁלֶּם-לָךְ-- אֶת-גְּמוּלֵךְ, שֶׁגָּמַלְתּ לָנוּ
אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיֹּאחֵז וְנִפֵּץ אֶת-עֹלָלַיִךְ-- אֶל-הַסָּלַע


How can one be compelled to accept slavery? I simply refuse to do the master's bidding. He may torture me, break my bones to atoms and even kill me. He will then have my dead body, not my obedience. Ultimately, therefore, it is I who am the victor and not he, for he has failed in getting me to do what he wanted done. ~ Mahatma Gandhi
If I am not for myself, who will be for me? If I am not for others, what am I? If not now, when? ~ Rav Hillel, Pirke Avot

The Italian Communist

Much a doo doo has been made about Martin Luther Lincoln Jr. Jr., his socialist leanings, his presidency marking the end of all life in the known universe...

I think this joke, told to me many years ago illustrates just what kind of socialist Martin Luther Lincoln Jr. Jr. is.

An American reporter was sent to post-war Italy to report on the various political factions that were emerging.  On this particular day he was interviewing a member of the Italian Communist Party.  The conversation went like this:

So let me get this straight...if you have two houses you'll keep one for yourself, and give the other to the state?

Si...I give one to that state, and keep one for a myself.

And if you had two cars you'd keep one for yourself and give the other one to the state?

Si...I give one car to the state and keep one a for a myself.

And if you had two horses you'd keep one for yourself and give one to the state?

Si...I give one horse to the state and I keep one a for a myself.

And if you had two shirts you'd keep one for yourself and give the other to the state?

No.

No?

No.

I don't understand...you'd give an extra house, an extra car, and extra horse...why not an extra shirt?

Well a...I got a two shirts.

If you buy a mansion in Hyde Park you're not planning on redistributing wealth to the poor...you're redistributing it to yourself, and your Hyde Park friends.

So America, how you lovin' Bush III?  Having fun yet?

Morning Shtuey! Would you mind if I pinched your Magen David pic and included it in my blog? No worries if not, Cheers, Pippa x

So true, Obama is much to selfish to be a true socialist. However, he's fine with taking away everyone else's stuff...i.e. social security which is soon to be gutted while the tax breaks for the wealthy will, according to Obama, stay in place for awhile to "help our economy". I guess they are only "entitlements" when they are for the poor.

Pippa, go right ahead. I actually got this idea from Nobama. So please, use the image, and encourage your Jewish blogger buddies, and non-Jews who wish to stand with us against Judeophobia, to use it too.

Mary Ellen, I put out the warning during the primaries that if HRC was not elected we were going to lose social security. People really don't get it yet, but they will...and the bots will scream bloody murder when they realize just how badly they've been deceived. And we'll have to say "I told you so" all over again.

I think I just had an idea for another post.

Shtuey- I did the same thing, I tried to tell those Bozo's that Obama wasn't all that different from George Bush and he would dump SS and Medicare. Telling them "I told you so" means nothing because they just use the same old line, "He's reaching across party lines!" No, he's reaching into the pockets of the poor to give to the rich, just like Bush.

The bots don't care about Social Security and Medicare—they're happy to stick it to the baby boomers.

It's not the poor he's hurting, those who convince themselves that because they're poor,they are getting in line to grab the gravy train; It's those still working who get no benefits, cannot get ahead and have no way to retire that jr. has in the cross hairs. No rest for those sorry folk.
