    Also, my 90 year-old Grandpa informed me, after finding out that none of his outbuildings collapsed while he was in Arizona, that he "made out like a Jew in Junkyard."

    I laughed, but awkwardly.

    Olds.

    That made me laugh. I spent a lot of time at Eshleman Hall.

    Definitely Olds. Wouldn't find a Jew anywhere near a junkyard today.

    I have not heard that one. I can remember my late father stating that "Jewish lightning" was about strike one of his rentals after about the 4th thing needed fixed in a week. He would be 102 now.

    Wow. We mock the snowflakes for being sensitive, but people really used to talk this way. Crazy.

    Probably would have told your old man that a drunk mick should be so lucky and then shake hands.

    So Morty and Sammy are taking a steam in a hotel in Miami Beach.

    Morty: Nu? What did you do?
    Sammy: I had a schmatte factory, but it burned down. How about you?
    Morty: I had a schmatte factory too, but we had a flood.

    Sammy thinks for awhile....

    Sammy: So Morty, how do you have a flood?

    Unfortunately you don't have to look far to find people that still do. It has gotten a lot better though, even compared to the 80's

    People still say "Jew him down" about trying to negotiate a better price.

    Kinky Friedman used to "Christian him down" in his mystery novels.

    It's been 10 years or more when I was trying to buy a Harley from one of the local "Good Deal Dan" car lots. The salesmen was just like the ones you see on TV, big belly, stains on the tie and shirt that wouldn't stay tucked in - you know the type.

    I made him and offer and he came back with about 3 other offers and I stuck to my guns and told him "This is it, you have 5 minutes to decide, take it or I'm gone". He said to me "I didn't see your Kippa (sp) when you came in".
    I just gave him the blank stare because I actually had no idea what he was talking about. I found out what a Kippa was like a week later.

    So, apparently, Ann Coulter was invited to Cal to speak by the Berkeley Republicans (all 6 of them, I guess). Then all hell broke loose with all kinds of death and bombing threats.

    The administration pulled the OK, but now gave its blessing claiming that a venue had been found that could be adequately secured.

    I was in a meeting when a woman made a comment about the guy who is in charge of the company's financials, "he is a jew and in charge of our money." I was like wow that would get you a trip to HR anywhere else in America.
    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan
