We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Photo is one of several from a commenter to Free Republic'sObama's silence on Gaza angers Arabs. It is A.N.S.W.E.R. people, it appears. Useful idiots, for whom Israel is always in the wrong. But what the US has to do with this is beyond me.
My view is that Hamas deliberately provokes Israel into responding, for their own political purposes. Their pathetic political purposes, it seems to me, are to maintain a privileged victim status, to deflect attention from their failures to create a decent society by scapegoating Israel, to collect $ from other countries - and to stay in power.
No wonder the Arab countries dislike and distrust the Palis to the extent that they refuse to take them as refugees.
Their reason for associating US with Israel is that we provide them funding and technology for their war machine. They're a bunch of twisted, delusional fools. Some are simply good intentioned dupes, others are intentionally evil.
The encouraging thing about this photo is that the majority of demonstrators appear to be older. These are the ones who bought the Soviet propaganda that the US was the evil capitalist imperialist empire while in reality the Soviets were raping and pillaging all over the world. These are bad, stupid people.
Most of these dupes also consciously or unconsciously do not like Juice, err, I mean Jews.
That older lady with the sign ... it's from International ANSWER, the main neo-Stalinist protest group on the "progressive" left protest scene. I can't believe she actually knows with whom she consorts. Indeed, the cult of Che tells that most people don't realize they glorify and make commerically acceptable mass murder.
I'm shaking my head in disgust, but then again, that's not new
