<quoted text>Tijuana? No.....but I don't imagine much difference between that and Juarez.
Sure, there is PLENTY to see here and do here in the USA, but traveling to other countries is fascinating if for no other reasons than to experience different cultures on so many levels as well as seeing so many countries so much richer in history than the USA is if for no other reason than that they have been around so much longer than the USA.
I encourage anyone and everyone to go to NYC. It is a city unlike any other in the world and with good reason.
If you do go to the Statue of Liberty, try to go in warm weather- it is VERY breezy and windy there, but is a sight to behold.
But I would suggest that you don't confine your visit to NYC to just the touristy type stuff- get into the stuff that real New Yorkers enjoy!
Despite that I've lived in Florida now for 17 years, NYC is THE greatest city in the world and as far as I'm concerned, not only has it always been, but always will be. There truly is no place like it.
Actually, I'm due for another visit there to visit my old haunts and my many friends in NYC- actually, I'm overdue since it's been about 3 years and since I've lived in Orlando, I've made it a point to get up there every couple of years or so.
Well if I ever do go to the Big Apple, hpefully I can get some sight seeing advice from a native Big Applian....

I really wanna see Liberty because of my devotion to America. She is a great symbol of freedom & unity. I'm not a fan of big cities. I went to Chicago once, saw the view from the Sears Tower.

Talk about shittin bricks!

<quoted text>You've yet to grasp that Zionism is a FANATIC "ism" and that most Jews denounce Zionism.
From YOUR link:
Aliyah[pronunciation?](Hebrew: &#1506;&#1458;&#15 00;&#1460;&#1497;& #1464;&#1468;&#1492; Translit.: aliyah Translated: ascent) is the immigration of Jews from the diaspora to the Land of Israel (Eretz Yisrael). It is one of the most basic tenets of Zionist ideology.
Sorry, dear, but the FACT remains that Jewish is NOT a race and Jews do not claim it is.
I don't CARE what those disgusting Zionists have to say.
"In the 1980s, the United States Supreme Court ruled that Jews are a race, at least for purposes of certain anti-discrimination laws. Their reasoning: at the time these laws were passed, people routinely spoke of the "Jewish race" or the "Italian race" as well as the "Negro race," so that is what the legislators intended to protect.
But many Jews were deeply offended by that decision, offended by any hint that Jews could be considered a race. The idea of Jews as a race brings to mind nightmarish visions of Nazi Germany, where Jews were declared to be not just a race, but an inferior race that had to be rounded up into ghettos and exterminated like vermin.
********But setting aside the emotional issues, Jews are clearly not a race.*********
Race is a genetic distinction, and refers to people with shared ancestry and shared genetic traits. You can't change your race; it's in your DNA. I could never become black or Asian no matter how much I might want to.
Common ancestry is not required to be a Jew. Many Jews worldwide share common ancestry, as shown by genetic research; however, you can be a Jew without sharing this common ancestry, for example, by converting. Thus, although I could never become black or Asian, blacks and Asians have become Jews (Sammy Davis Jr. and Connie Chung)."

Then explain how a Jew can claim, "I'm a non-practicing Jew.", with a straight face.

Would you pass up free real estate, plus free airfare and start-up cash if you were a poor Jew? Puhleeze. I can think of plenty of non-Jews who would claim to be Jewish if they thought they could get any of those handouts.

No doubt you can and you would. But do NOT refer to New Yorkers as native Big Applians- LOL!!

Well, the view from the Empire State Building is very breathtaking- the Statue of Liberty doesn't offer that kind of view.

Last time I went to an observation deck at the Empire State Building, they didn't take you up any higher than the 86th floor- as if that isn't high enough.

But the Empire State Building has 102 floors and is 102 stories high and stands at 1454 feet high.

By contrast, the Statue of Liberty stands at 305 feet so if you want a real view of NYC, the Empire State Building better suits that purpose.

Also, to get to the stop of the Statue of Liberty, you have to WALK up- 354 steps which takes a good half hour or so.

I'm a non-practicing Jew. I said it with a straight face.

And with few exceptions, most of the Jews I know- and I know quite a few- are also non-practicing.

You're an anti-Semitic POS- our agreeing on a couple of things earlier notwithstanding.

Good analogy. So if someone had never had ice cream before and you are trying to explain it to them without any kind of evidence, they'll likely call bullshit on you, even though you know you ate the ice cream and you know what it did to you and how it felt.
Good try.

I've had "out of the ordinary" experiences before. I thought they were caused by God too. My interpretation of those experiences where informed by the beliefs I was indoctrinated with. With a different indoctrination, I would have had a different interpretation of the experiences. Having escaped the conditioning, I can now more accurately interpret the experiences.

I don't doubt that you've had experiences, I just don't think you are able to interpret them freely. People who believe things on faith jump on anything they can to help shore up their faith, whether it makes sense or not. Relying on subjective experiences as evidence, while not accepting the subjective experiences of others as equally valid evidence, shows the true nature of faith and what it does to people. You simply cannot be consistent with your methodologies.

People feel the presence of Vishnu, so you should believe in Vishnu. If you did, you'd feel Vishnu too. It's almost guaranteed that you would. You just have to believe first.

Really? Only one too many? What's the total?

Would you trust a stranger with your life savings? Would you trust a Middle Eastern stranger with your life savings? Would you trust a long dead anonymous group of Middle Easterners to tell you the great truths of the universe, and then dictate the course of most of your life based on those truths?

How much "touching" would it take to relieve you of your life savings?

Yes, how does one man change the economic status of a country? I am guessing, but I have not checked into it, that Obama's main strengths, for which he got elected in the first place, were not related to his background in national and international banking, and how money, wars, and employment are all mixed up, along with nowadays, with computer technology, we can have a panic on the stock exchanges which can cause rich people to become poor, companies to go broke, people to lose jobs.

We have had several worldwide recessions in the past several decades whic often have the domino effect, because we all are somewhat affected by how everyone else is doing economically.

No- I did not.

And considering I live in Florida, I'd better NOT have a problem with rednecks!

I did. I stated that grain is NOT a filler though it is sometimes USED as such.

I also stated that starches are NOT the way to go- not if you have high blood sugar, diabetes or are looking to lose weight.

And I also stated that it is ANIMAL FLESH which is not easily digested.

But really, kitten- come ON- you're having what is intended to be a full meal ( a Tyson frozen dinner) as a SNACK between meals?

And what you stupidly refer to as "hand outs" are for people who wish to return to what they believe is their biblical native land, to start a new life and to escape the anti-Semitism which disgusting people like YOU display.

At least RR doesn't make a MAJOR show of his ignorance by posting ZIONIST crap and thinking that to be a Jew means to be a Zionist.

You know.....there is nothing mysterious or secretive about the Jewish religion or about being a Jew.

That you prefer to remain steeped in the ignorance you embrace about Jews and Judaism is just another of your many issues.
