    They said they same thing about Ireland.
    '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

    Hmm, and we never bombed or invaded them. I wonder how they managed?

    There was essentially a British occupation.

    Weren't you also as supporter of the Iraq war?

    Can't get 'em all right. But you asked me if I was ever right, not if I was ever wrong.

    For the record, here's a couple of more on the correct side:
    Arab Spring would be a disaster.
    Peak Oil was ****

    That's a classic jbilly. So true.

    Not from my experience. Tell us about the time you were right about something?

    EVERYTHING.

    I'll not stand for this, not one bit.

    Chag Chanukah Sameach, Steven. Thanks for teaching me so many Hebrew phrases.
  • StevenSteven Senior Member Posts: 1,912 Senior Member
    That one's Hebrew.

    Most are Yiddish thoug. In Yiddish you say, "A freilichen Chanukah" (Happy Chanukah) or "A lichtich Chanukah" (Have a bright Chanukah).

    So my sister lives in the Dallas area. Her oldest boy hit on the idea of making "Chanukah" jelly donuts all week and selling them on Facebook. According to my sister, "The Christian people are taking them to their bible studies."

    Does anyone actually still speak Yiddish as a first language? I was wondering about this as I was reading Exodus for the eighth time last week. I don't know why I love that book so much.
  • StevenSteven Senior Member Posts: 1,912 Senior Member
    Yes. The Ultra-Orthodox. Go to certain areas of Brooklyn and that's all you'll hear.

    It's a great book.
  • BuffcoBuffco Senior Member Posts: 9,571 Senior Member
    Which Exodus are you guys talking about? The book in the Torah/Bible? Or the Uris novel?

    Defying Trump, U.N. General Assembly Condemns U.S. Decree on Jerusalem

    https://www.nytimes.com/2017/12/21/world/middleeast/trump-jerusalem-united-nations.html?_r=0

    The vote was 129 to 9, with 35 abstentions.
  • StevenSteven Senior Member Posts: 1,912 Senior Member
    And this surprised no one.

    About the same vote that got the Palestinians non-member observer status. About the same vote that got the Palestinian flag flying at the U.N. as well.

    Bunch of racists they are, Obama, Bush, Clinton, and Trump.

    I couldn't read all this...

    Let's just say, The U.S.can now mirror Kansas which is the poster child for all things republican, Right to work, low, low taxes, huge debt,...., growth?? hahaha.....it's really a long list of proving that supply side economics is such utter fantasy. Now america can become fanstasyland...interesting book by the way. We are "exceptional" in that we are some of the few that still live in a fantasy land of out own making. Blame the pilgrims -> Methodists+baptists=evangelicalism...where the truth is whatever you say it is. I guess it has reached fulfillment. LOCK HER UP!

    I hope you are all doing well.
    I find the assault on free thought disturbing,
    I find the willingness to give it up frightening.
  • StevenSteven Senior Member Posts: 1,912 Senior Member
    Wrong thread. This is discussing how Trump, Netanyahu and Evangelicals are set to bring about peace in the Middle East or the End Times.

    Your post belongs in the "If Rubio Gets the Child Tax Credit Thing Done."

    Hope you're feeling well. How's your back?

    This lady!

    U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley threatened U.N. member states and the United Nations with funding cuts if the U.N. General Assembly approved a resolution calling President Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel "null and void."
