Re: ISIS on the run under Trump

ISIS on the run under Trump Former President Barack Obama had allowed the ISIS cancer to metastasize in the first place, leading to the killing, maiming, kidnapping and sexual enslavement of many thousands of innocent men, women and children.

As for not being exceptional or superior in any way, you've apparently mistaken them for Portugal. (See how obnoxious that is?)

Re: Exit the United Nations?

Great news. Israel and the United States are departing UNESCO. But what took them so long? Withdrawing from any international forum is never a good thing. Countries need to talk to each other, no matter how little they like each other. Americans are already far too disrespectful of other nations so...

Re: The Bells of Barcelona toll for Europe

Will it come to this? http://img03.deviantart.net/d6e8/i/2012/096/a/5/goya___revolution_art_by_ilad2-d4v74h9.jpg Plenty of Spaniards willing to try it... And plenty of dumb Europeans ready to let them try... Will a civil war in Catalonia be of advantage to anyone in Spain or in Europe? If not, then...

Re: Yom Kippur

My theory is that the Democratic Party like all leftist parties is the party of the welfare state. It encourages you to become dependent on the government.

Yom Kippur

Many of my ancestors - probably most of them - were Sephardic Jews. I am not Jewish, not even a religious person, and I do not intend to become either of those things. But I decided this year to recover some of my cultural heritage and celebrate - in a secular manner - Yom Kippur, the day of attonem...
