    I have eaten many Shabbat dinners (especially the catch all stew with the whole hard-boiled eggs in it) I would never criticize that.

    Yes, I get it.

    I don't think anyone has called you anti-Semetic...

    There's really only one here who was called that...and it wasn't for reasonably questioning the building of settlements on the West Bank...I think we all know that.

    Oh, I know but he brought up the overuse and deliberate tactic of smearing people with the label and I just agreed with him on the overall premise.

    I'm singin' in the rain
    Just singin' in the rain
    What a horrible feelin'
    The Jews are in charge.

    I'm screaming at Fox.
    I hate NBC.

    There's fear in my heart
    And i'm ready to depart.

    Back to my Stormtropper place.
    To wait on the New World Order,
    And fiendish plots against my race.

    Let the black helicopters chase,
    Everyone from this place.

    Come on with the rain
    I've a smile on my face
    I got my jackboots on.

    With a happy refrain
    just singin'
    singin' in the rain

    dancin' in the rain...

    You're a joodle Jew Jew...
    There's another one too..
    So many joodle Jew Jews..
    And a multi-culturalist too..
    Oh the joodle Jew Jews...
    All behold that fancy strutting peacock, the bake sale diva...

    Interesting quote I saw being floated about recently:

    “The first gulp from the glass of natural sciences will turn you into an atheist, but at the bottom of the glass God is waiting for you.”

    Werner Heisenberg

    Now, to be honest, I never heard much of Heisenberg until Breaking Bad came out...but guess he's like the father of Quantum physics.

    In the brief skimming I have done...my understanding is he was not talking about a personal god, though a member of the Lutheran church...but is speaking more for a "god" in the central order to the universe that far exceeds our understanding.

    He's got some other good quotes...

    you got all that from watching breaking bad?? That's awesome! You are being seduced by "religious dogma"!

    "If you’re committed enough, you can make any story work. I once told a woman I was Kevin Costner, and it worked because I believed it" -Saul Goodman
