Mexico took it from the "American" indians.

So from that "white male' pespective, it is much more likely that I would not vote democrat. Also, as a TRADITIONAL Jew, it is much more likely that I would not vote democrat. (Again, as I pointed out, the "liberal" Jews that everyone rails against are most often secular or reformed)

Yes, the religious/traditional trend conservative. The problem is there are very few of us. Maybe 5-9% of Jews in the U.S.

Where do you get that from?

There are about 6.5 million Jews in the U.S.

Depending on how you do it and who is providing the data, there is up to 600,000 Orthodox Jews in the U.S

That is up to about 9%.

There will be lasting peace in Israel just as soon as all the Jews are eliminated by the Muslims. Actually the way thing are going the US mil will probably be told to do it.

Likely they'd then war over tribal issues and different brands of Islam. The Israelis simply give them a common enemy for the time being.

Obama knows he needs the AIPAC cash flow coming in fast. He has to up his odds. Perfect timing, the guy is just natural.

The unemployment rate that you are referring to is calculated based on the number of people who can file an unemployment claim and are in the system as reporting. It doesn't account for folks who have run out of unemployment benefits or those who have given up looking for jobs.

The "real" unemployment rate is probably closer to 15%.

A peace plan that calls for the destruction of Israel.

What else could one expect from a president with a muslim name, a muslim heritage, and a deep sympathy for the PLO.

Per capita, the Jews have double the money of white Christians. In absolute terms, white Christans have 5 times the wealth of the Jews.

In the real world the actual number of absolute wealth that white Christians have is stageringly higher than "5" times.
Yep, blessed above all others and numerous as the stars of heaven and the sands of the sea.

There was not a shred of information in what you listed as "summing it up" you realize?

I could post that and fill in the Obama with literally any leader from any time period and it would carry the same weight as what you have there.

The only thing we have to worry about in this country is authoritarianism. Literally every single war that has ever happened in the history of mankind was started by an authoritarian and finished by a coalition against an authoritarian.

Read conservatives without conscience by John Dean for more information on this. He was the guy who cracked the Watergate Scandal.

When you are willing to parrot the ideas of your handlers (as I have just pointed out that you have done) without second guessing their merit or looking for actual facts to back them up, you are exhibiting the fundamental characteristic of an authoritarian. That is the only threat this country, and humanity itself, has ever faced...people who follow without thinking for their self.
Sure it can be applied to anyone, as anyone who read it should be able to figure that out. Thanks for the lesson, jr.

But I posted it as a quote about Mr O and those who voted for him. Whether you agree with the sentiment of the quoute or not does not make the quote invalid in and of itself.

Well I guess the US should go back to it's pre 1845 border with Mexico because when we annexed Texas they were left without a homeland and were forced to move south to Mexico to remain there in abject poverty for the rest of their lives.

Sound familiar?
