There is no nationality that even comes close to the Jews when it comes to being clanish. I will guarantee that 90% of them here in America would turn their backs on us in a heartbeat for two reasons ....Monetary gain and Israel. They prove it daily.
That is what I admire most about them. It's a lesson to be learned for people to survive; We see Americans against Americans, it's not right. The Arabs don't stick together and they outnumber the Jews; unity keeps a people strong.
When we had that horrific hurricane Andrew; all the Jews I knew then, rented trucks and brought down food, water, clothes, etc to the victims in the Keys. I think that the Jews are a wonderfully kind people and are always helpful to others.

Regarding Israel; that's another story and I fear that it will never end; perhaps they want to completely annihilate all 1.8 million of them, no one wants the Palestinians, not Jordan, not Egypt etc. What a horrible place to be in. One would think that the Jews would have empathy for them since they were once the unwanted people that were nearly annihilated themselves. So hard to understand; I don't like Netanyahu at all, and many Israelis feel the same way.

The fanatics on both sides destroy any hope of peace. Remember that Anwar Sadat was killed by one of his own people; same as Menachim Begin.

how many rich people avoided Vietnam like Bush did in your scenario?
Give us some numbers...
Stupid question.

Much has been written about the Vietnam era draft and how it impacted the lives of the young men of that era, and those who for various reasons didn't serve. My own brother didn't serve due to asthma and chronic eczema. He raced bicycles professionally however and was an Olympic class cross country skier.

Bush was a fortunate son, his father GHWB was a US Congressman and the US Ambasador to the United Nations during the Vietnam era, Junior got a spot in the TANG, probably at his fathers insistence and basically dropped out leaving his commitment unfulfilled. He could have gone the ER route as Dan Quayle and others did or gone on towards a PhD. As a fortunate son his possibilities were endless.

Mitt Romney another fortunate son was deferred by serving the Mormon church in France.

In the first week of November in the fifth year of their presidencies, Obama and Bush have nearly identical approval numbers, according to the latest Gallup polling.
In fact, Bush comes out one point ahead, 40 percent to 39 percent, respectively.
The Gallup daily tracking poll for November 5th 2013 puts Obama’s approval at 39 percent, with 53 percent disapproving of his job performance.
By comparison, polling for the first week of November in 2005 had Bush’s approval at 40 percent, with 55 percent disapproving of his job performance.
Obama is likely to find himself in some unexpected and unwanted company – that of an unpopular president he was elected to replace.

Former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg (I) is flying to Israel tonight on the Israeli airline El Al to protest a Federal Aviation Administration ban on U.S. carriers flying to or from Ben Gurion International Airport in Tel Aviv.
Bloomberg made the announcement on his Web site. He urged the FAA to change its decision.
"This evening I will be flying on El Al to Tel Aviv to show solidarity with the Israeli people and to demonstrate that it is safe to fly in and out of Israel," Bloomberg said in a statement. "Ben Gurion is the best protected airport in the world and El Al flights have been regularly flying in and out of it safely. The flight restrictions are a mistake that hands Hamas an undeserved victory and should be lifted immediately. I strongly urge the FAA to reverse course and permit US airlines to fly to Israel."
The FAA said the ban -- for at least 24 hours -- was put in place after a rocket landed about a mile away from the airport.
Bloomberg to raise hell with Hamas and BAN their GUNS !!!
The FAA Ban was the work of Brother Achmed Obama.
So are the minute-by-minute Magic Negro Media reports out of Terrorist Gaza.

I saw that on the news. Awful, just awful. Over 600 Palestinians killed, their homes demolished, hospitals and schools demolished, no electricity or water. One teen boy said
"I was planning on becoming a doctor; now I am homeless; what do you think I will become now"?
Will the Israelis just completely annihilate them? They have nowhere to go.

Don't you even dare to question anyone's patriotism of faith Carol because they disagree with your narrow minded beliefs. Your Christianity seems to be limited to being anti abortion and anti gay although you seemed to show a glimmer of compassion concerning the children showing up on our border. But the basic concept of the Gospels, social justice, seems to go right over your head.
The Founding Fathers were secular progressives Carol and the Constitution is a secular progressive document.
You're the last person on the planet to be calling anyone else "willfully stupid"; you've demonstrated your ignorance on a daily basis.

On Sunday, Arthur Brisbane, the public editor for The New York Times, admitted that the newspaper has a pro-Obama bias and encouraged the paper to be more even-handed during this years’ presidential election.
Now, though, the general election season is on, and The Times needs to offer an aggressive look at the president’s record, policy promises and campaign operation to answer the question: Who is the real Barack Obama?
Many critics view The Times as constitutionally unable to address the election in an unbiased fashion. Like a lot of America, it basked a bit in the warm glow of Mr. Obama’s election in 2008. The company published a book about the country’s first African-American president,“Obama: The Historic Journey.” The Times also published a lengthy portrait of him in its Times Topics section on NYTimes.com , yet there’s nothing of the kind about George W. Bush or his father.
I'll give Brisbane credit for being honest enough to admit that the Times leans way too much in favor of Obama, but he is kidding himself if he thinks that the powers-that-be at the paper will heed his advice and aim for unbiased coverage of the President.

What are you babbling about space shot? You commies on the left are the Ruskie lovers and always have been.
It is entertaining though to see how recent events with Russia have exposed Obama for the rookie community organizer he is though. Your new found hate for Russia is simply because Putin has played Obama and exposed him for the fool he is, dumbfk.
What a warped and twisted puppy you are,,,Putin is the one squirming. I have no new found love for anyone I'm an American first and you are a bagger first,Plain and simple. Actually if you had a twin brother that would be your names..Plain and Simple. LMAO
