Michael Pugliese exit LBO again the thread which was to be Michael Pugliese's big blow out; after posting long stretches of Ian Williams work and a mention of a certain Hoare (who was member of the Henry Jackson society apparantly, which makes Carl Remick and Dennis Perrin blow up and get quite mad. Michael signs off and his even when he comes back during the first half of 2006 makes himself scarce and leaves in a huff again.

So? The son has demonstrated himeslf right here to be pretty awful,

almost by definition toxic.

He signed off, by the way.

Did he? Fucking coward. I actually read a couple of his essays last night,
and was gonna take apart a few bits here for a few laughs. Zen exercise and

Hey MPug -- since you think Hoare is so brilliant, coax him back. I'll
engage him straight up.

I'll go you one better: I never heard of Hoare *or* the Henry Jackson
Society. I am shocked to learn such a thing as the HJS even exists.
Unlamented proto-neocon Scoop Jackson has been dead for 22 years, so I
thought he was in no position to work further evil. But like a horror
flick, it seems the Senator from Boeing's warmongering spirit has risen
from the grave to walk the earth as this hideous HJS. There appears to be no
end to these lavishly endowed rightwing think tanks, petri dishes swarming with
bacteria like Hoare.

My favorite australian bird

Once again the cry has gone out to kill them when they do no real harm to anyone and certainly no harm to our native birds." ------- also this: a rapsodic poem by Frank S. Williamson

Sweet-voiced magpies are the black and white minstrels of Australia. They have adapted successfully to urban and agricultural areas. Beautiful carolling, a relish for eating many harmful insect pests and the bird's bold nature have made the magpie popular with the suburban gardener and other bird lovers. Australian magpies are often found in relatively open gardens, and sometimes become quite tame in suburban areas.

This forward from Peter Myers' elist shares a very important perspective on the Fed. What may become our most difficult undertaking thus far is upon us. Ack. This topic makes Hegel look like a piece of cake. The left has perfected their arguments and I have never questioned them on their economic stance. For the most part I am not an active participant on Myers' list, whose contributors put forth a very strong case at every opportunity. From what I can understand many on the right are champions of free trade, monopolies and open borders, the Libertarian founder was clear on his anti nationalism. It is amazing that both camps support internationalism and nobody supports national sovreignty that insists on strong tariffs or mutual trade agreements with equals balanced with strong local support for American business. When you stop importing cheap goods you create a market for American made. According to List it's that simple. He also said you can see the results alomst immediately. Maybe it's worth a try. Maybe not, but somehow we've got to *stop* the outsourcing of American industry and technology and quit giving away everything but the kitchen sink. It's solution time for what's left of a creative thinking America, and there's no time to waste. Do the people of the United States have a strategy for regaining their freedom from the usurpers who hold them in the palms of their invisible hands?

Is central bank independence all it's cracked up to be?
As Alan Greenspan departs, he leaves behind a heavily burdened US economy that is already contributing to global financial instability
By Joseph Stiglitz

"Drawing on history, politics and theology, Stephen Sizer (Christian Zionism: Road Map to Armageddon) raises the level of strategic conversation regarding the Middle East crisis. His book will help leaders in both America and Europe generate "gamechanging" scenarios for faith to diffuse the doomsday plan created by a century of Zionism." Jay Gary, (author of The Star of 2000)
A Jewish Defector Warns America: Benjamin Freedman was one of the most intriguing and amazing individuals of the 20th century.
Mr. Freedman, born in 1890, was a successful Jewish businessman of New York City who was at one time the principal owner of the Woodbury Soap Company. He broke with organized Jewry after the Judeo-ist victory of 1945, and spent the remainder of his life and the great preponderance of his considerable fortune, at least 2.5 million dollars, exposing the Jewish tyranny which has enveloped the United States.
Mr. Freedman knew what he was talking about because he had been an insider at the highest levels of Jewish organizations and Jewish machinations to gain power over our nation. Mr. Freedman was personally acquainted with Bernard Baruch, Samuel Untermyer, Woodrow Wilson, Franklin Roosevelt, Joseph Kennedy, and John F. Kennedy, and many more movers and shakers of our times. This speech was given before a patriotic audience in 1961 at the Willard Hotel in Washington, D.C., on behalf of Conde McGinley's patriotic newspaper of that time, Common Sense. Though in some minor ways this wide-ranging and extemporaneous speech has become dated, Mr. Freedman's essential message to us -- his warning to the West -- is more urgent than ever before. -- K.A.S. ---
The Jews didn't like the Czar, and they didn't want Russia to win this war. So the German bankers -- the German-Jews -- Kuhn Loeb and the other big banking firms in the United States refused to finance France or England to the extent of one dollar. They stood aside and they said: "As long as France and England are tied up with Russia, not one cent!" But they poured money into Germany, they fought with Germany against Russia, trying to lick the Czarist regime.
Now those same Jews, when they saw the possibility of getting Palestine, they went to England and they made this deal. At that time, everything changed, like the traffic light that changes from red to green. Where the newspapers had been all pro-German, where they'd been telling the people of the difficulties that Germany was having fighting Great Britain commercially and in other respects, all of a sudden the Germans were no good. They were villains. They were Huns. They were shooting Red Cross nurses. They were cutting off babies' hands. And they were no good.

Inaugural Peace Wheel awarded to Brett White, the hubmotor man downunder
Fish 09 Dec 2005 00:23 GMT ---- PO Box 108, Samford, 4520, Queensland.

Never mind the Holy Grail. First 250 million-year-old peace award goes to cyberspace and airpond knight errant.

The 2005 Peace Wheel has gone to Brett White of Newcastle in Oz, Nepal and other places. He won it for the vast amount of free advice and help he has offered all and sundry across the planet, on light-vehicle electric hubmotors. Our accredited herald, Sir Google, will explain the boring bits. He knows Brett well, having had him at the very top of his "hubmotor" lists, against strong paying and non-paying competition from commercial companies. If you have been one of the countless billions who have received helpful email replies, you may have noticed the time given as 3.48 am or something similar. A very fine effort.

The Peace Wheel is a bit smaller than the usual international award, being roughly 1 cm in diameter. It is also less hideous than the average award by two orders of magnitude. The dimensions are stated as "roughly," because we have not found two quite the same. The wheel is a section of a crinoid stem, almost exactly 250 million years old. Happy birthday, little crinoid stem. It is one of a very small collection that has been held in trust for many years by the committee. They were the gift of a part-Aboriginal, part -Afghan, part-Irish cattle duffer (a cattle rustler, to those of you who stand upside down or sideways), George Latham. George left the army in WW2 to go back to his work, and built a charcoal burner for his old ute so that he could. He left because someone shouted at him, that he had to close one eye when firing his rifle. To a dogger, that was absurd. How can you see which way the dingo is turning if you close your other eye? The dingoes have forgiven George and many Japanese and German families perhaps got their sons back intact from that festival of pleasantries, because George declined to attend.

The Peace Wheel has lain peacefully for rather a long time. But, as the Permian coal swamps and the tar sands next to whom it lived are at present being evicted from their beds and burned, it has decided to speak out in its own way. It is concerned for its fellow fossils, so many of whom are now facing extinction and expulsion via tailpipes.

The awards committee consists of two old men and a three-legged dingo-dog called Fish who, since he represents the rest of the biosphere, chairs the committee, has two votes and also has the one in the case of a deadlock. All award winners will have the right to one vote in future selections. The committee is dedicated to being as biased as possible in its judgements. It will do its best to skew the awards towards ordinary folk who do whatever it is for free and to the everlasting detriment of the growth economy and of all who sail in her on the upper decks. The Peace Wheel award committee is also openly volunteerist. All members are known to have been card-carrying members of voluntary organisations, or at least, to have once owned bus tickets. No member of the committee has ever owned a dynamite factory. One did come close to being forwarded to a higher sphere by Mr Nobel's gift to the planet, but on careful deliberation, that was not considered sufficient grounds for exclusion.

The winners for the 2006 Peace Wheel have been selected and will shortly be informed of their nonfortune, but nominations are open now for 2007 and will remain open till the end of 2006. All sentient life forms are eligible. Nominations for non-sentient or ex-sentient beings, local, astral or inter-galactic, will be considered on their merits, provided they can prove prior ownership of a bus ticket. If you yourself are sentient, you may nominate yourself and welcome. If you know someone or something or some group that you think ought to get the next Peace Wheel, feel free to nominate her, him, herhim, it or them. Send your application fee in whatever currency you like but preferably in solar nanomoney, to anywhere other than here. We do not want your money even if it has been organically sterilized by chacma baboons.

There is one vacancy on the awards committee. A bunya tree has applied, but if you are a starfish, a sky god, a lady seal or meerkat, or failing that any sort of lady, the bunya tree has graciously offered to withdraw its application, to accommodate you..

Happy Birthday to crinoids everywhere. Keep the faith. Your time will come again. Woof to all the rest of you also and well done, Hubmotorman


for The Peace Wheel Award Committee, and the rest of the biosphere.

In the case of Ann Coulter and self-described white right-wing
"pretty girls" like her, looks _is_ politics (there is nothing else
they are paid to display): rich, white, tall, thin, able-bodied, etc.
= good and beautiful vs. poor, non-white, short, fat, disabled, etc.
= bad and ugly. That is all there is to it. (It's like a failed
parody of Leni Riefenstahl's Olympia -- the first time as tragedy,
the second time as farce. . . .) Just as we question their bogus
claim to goodness, we question their bogus claim to beauty, for both
claims are nothing but claims to plutocracy and white supremacy.

What's especially galling about the white supremacist politics of
beauty is that white supremacists first try to browbeat non-whites
into accepting the white standard of beauty; and then, (after being
subjected to centuries of browbeating), if some non-whites happen to
accept it and try to emulate it by resorting to hair straightening,
plastic surgery, etc., they get ridiculed by -- the same white
people! -- for lacking in self respect and anyway still failing to
measure up to the white standard. !!!

Smash the idols, I say.

Parks, Harriet McBryde Johnson, and other beautiful women on the Left!

I agree that if what I wrote was meant as a rhetorical suggestion it
would indeed have been a non sequitur. My rhetorical suggestion would be
to write about things that matter rather than to stand around poking
shit with a stick and making faces. My "rhetorical suggestion" would be
to not to say dismissive things about Ann Coulter. My rhetorical
suggestion would be to not say anything at all about Ann Coulter. The
point of Ann Coulter's act is to get attention and saying anything only
feeds the beast. But if I happen to fart, I don't find it terribly
interesting either to be lectured by shit-shovelers about how I'm
smelling up the ambience. Fuck that hypocrisy. Nothing I say about Ann
Coulter has absolutely anything to do with any progressive strategy I
have in mind. For that matter, nothing I say on LBO has much to do with
any progressive strategy because the level of discourse on this list is
almost exclusively at the level of voyeurism and exhibitionism. Believe
me, ANYTHING I say on this list is purely for the sake of amusement,
primarily my own, because I am perfectly capable of calculating the
ratio of trash to substance here. And when the trash comes up with "we
teach. you learn." it's a pretty good indication that anything one could
say here is indeed a non sequitur because there is non to sequitur.

The Sandwichman

So by your own admission you're adding to the quantity of trash?


Absolutely. There's not a word in anything I posted to these threads
that I would bother to archive. Laura Mulvey's Lacanian psychoanalytic
film critique was gibberish 30 years ago. Today it's 30-year old
gibberish. Me arguing with third-hand regurgitations of 30-year old
gibberish is trash.

Well, we know Ann Coulter plays one on TV. After all, gender is
performance. The thing is that it is because of her gender
performance that Coulter is useful for the Right. We did win the
Culture War . . . to an extent. The extent of the small victory is
that nowadays the Right can't purvey sexism without having "women"
like Coulter give cover for them, racism without having "Black men"
like Clarence Thomas and "Asian women" like Michelle Malkin give
cover for them, etc. To say that Coulter is a victim of sexism is to
say that Thomas is a victim of "high-tech lynching."

Well, if anyone puts down Ann Coulter _solely_ on account of her
looks, she should consider herself lucky -- that's probably the
kindest cut. I don't consider an insult to her to be an insult to
women in general. She may play a woman on TV, but there is nothing
in common between her and women on the left -- her sole raison d'etre
for the right-wing media is to insult women on the left in particular
and the (very broadly defined) left in general. Her fortune may rise
or fall, but that won't affect our lot at all. If ours truly rises,
though, hers will go down. (Notice the lack of symmetry here.)

And, speaking more generally, it must be admitted that, regarding
_some_ men and women, it is nearly impossible not to believe that
their physical appearance outranks their intelligence, wit,
accomplishments, and character all put together. What am I to say
about Keanu Reeves' "intelligence, wit, accomplishments, and
character"? All I can say is that he seems not unpleasant (something
that I cannot say about Coulter, Thomas, Malkin, etc.). On the other
hand, for women like Emily Dickinson (yesterday was her birthday) and
men like Diego Rivera, it doesn't matter at all that they weren't
much to look at.

Oh dear, a fanboy. I must say, though, I was rooting for Kate Moss lately, because if her career had gone down with the coke scandal, it would have been a victory for anti-drug-warriors. As it happened, Ms. Moss triumphed: Recently, Moss has picked up a string of new contracts and held onto her old ones - including, perhaps fittingly, Yves Saint Laurent's Opium perfume. The ultimate accolade comes Thursday when French Vogue - perhaps the fashion industry's most influential publication - hits the stands
with a December issue devoted to Moss. The tag line on the cover: "Scandalous Beauty." Add the Vogue cover picture to your collection.

Although you delivered your critique with all the fellow feeling
exhibited by Achilles when he plunged the business end of his sword into

have a point.

Indeed, I'm sure that I'm one of the most diligently working 'trash
men', slinging useless text out into the void with all the skill of a
monkey behind the wheel of a monster truck (in a more just world, I'd be

But then again... It occurs to me that the situation you're describing is not unique to
LBO but is, in fact, pretty much the way most humans talk to each other
most of the time.

If that's the case then perhaps your criticisms are based upon a desire
that this forum would be 'elevated' and therefore, what: more
theoretically original? Less dependent upon news sources for topics of
concern? More focused on practical information about the day-to-day
workings of the world?

If you could have your way, what would you be reading here instead of
the, as you wrote, "pap"?


sound health advice:

I went looking for news on a colourfully printed affirmation books centered cult, outflow of the violet flame fairy tale faction from the 30s, neither good examples of present day matriarchy in my opinion, more like schisms in catholicism. In a trial a former employee sued for 253 milion and got awarded half of one which his former little tyrant was ordered to cough up, though she tried to fight it all the way up to supreme court which denied the writ of certiorari. wikipedia says it triggered her apocalypticism. "The Church itself built what is arguably the largest privately owned bomb shelter in the US. Designed for 756 people, with food storage for seven years, the cavernous underground city had generators, communications equipment, and room to store semi-trucks and armored personnel carriers. This was built at an estimated cost of $20 million. (The funds came largely from the sale of the Church's former campus in Calabasas, California [near Los Angeles].)" news on the summit lighthouse AKA church universal and triumphant;

"Church leader Elizabeth Clare Prophet had said nuclear war was likely, and bombs could land in Paradise Valley. Church members hoped the bombs would never launch, but they wanted to be prepared if the missiles did fly.

On the night of March 15, 1990, hundreds if not thousands of CUT members entered the bomb shelters they had hurriedly constructed. They had gathered here from as far as Europe and South America. Some had quit jobs and run up big debt, anticipating apocalypse.

The times were weird and tense. The media swarmed all over Paradise Valley.
Then, nothing happened. Church officials maintained the next day the whole thing had been a drill. But some members didn't know that: before they left their shelters, they turned on the Geiger counters."

early this year they were getting ready to put in 18.000 sq f of new office space on the 6.000 acres remaining after selling of as many to the fed.

"The year 1999 appears to be a tipping point, a time when the church and its neighbors learned to get along, 18 years after the church bought its first property in Park County. .. . .. But 1999 was also the year Prophet announced she had Alzheimer's disease and would retire, removing the charismatic but controversial leader from the church's forefront."

Defending the Teaching of Evolution in the Public Schools

Vine Deloria Jr, Creationism, and Ethnic Pseudoscience
by H David Brumble

Vine Deloria, a Standing Rock Sioux, has been an important advocate for American Indians for more than 25 years. He has defended Indian claims in the courts; he has acted as an Indian spokesman in Washington. Deloria is also a professor of history, law, and religious studies at the University of Colorado.

His books have brought Indian concerns to a broad audience. He burst upon the scene in 1969 with Custer Died for Your Sins, and he has continued to write about injustices done the Indians by the government, the schools, the church, anthropologists, and the courts. Most recently he has taken on the scientists in Red Earth, White Lies: Native Americans and the Myth of Scientific Fact. Imagine how Deloria's own people must have felt when this distinguished man returned to the Standing Rock Reservation to talk — no, to consult — with them about science. Deloria describes just such a scene in this book. He returns to the reservation and delivers a speech. In this speech he discusses a problem in paleontology that he is currently working on. Deloria believes that a certain sawtooth-backed "monster" in one of the Sioux tales is really a stegosaurus:

After my speech a couple of the traditional people approached me and said that the next time I came, if I had time, they would take me to see the spot where the people last saw this creature, implying that it was still possible to see the animal during the last century before the reservations were established. I gave their knowledge credence (p 243).
I've got a quandary for ya: which side of the divide would you choose, or can you play brigde?

The gap yawns and a good number of lefties hope (and organize for) the day 'de wallen' (A'dam sex.come district) get whiped off the map dawns.

Tonight an ex whore, Mariska Majoor, defended the days of her dual slot window waredom sitting next to another, Karina Schaapman, who stands by the persuasion described in the previous sentence and who's incontrovertible suit was the reports most prosts behind these windows are victims lives traded over their heads, usually after falling for lies and forced to stay there through debt, etcetera.

that's why I routinely save them, I can stomach yours fine too thanks.

.. and herewith/therefore suggest we should just 'plemp' the other tangent 'vol' with currentsee rambles (only 5 right now) since this one is gonna cost our sweet abstractdynamicizers exponentially more money as we append more (the law of diminishing returns rules in digitalia after all).

this week the largest dutch blog had a 1000 comment item!!!! (moronic one liners ((by fast car and laughs at a new sucker everyday's expense)) but more and more staggering to 'serve' nevertheless)
Beeotch: I’m getting an error?

I assume you refer to sex dot com? --- they have a tempree page up now, signed 'adult sites against child pornography' at the bottom, godda draw the line someplace right? --- but I just meant to indicate the biggest commercial sex district 'de wallen', not any bitchomp site, the REAL place where the 'grachten' canals are REAL narrow and the palette to dip your pinsel in REAL wide.

Ah wait, it's that damn p command again, between code clamps, behind the links - I tried telling you last week but that may have been when my comments stopped going through.

I forgot to mention (praise the loawd I can post again, thanks for fixin that error) that the pro-pornies have hit on a really wonderful gag.

The customer gets a free bright red t-shirt and of course the ad shows a range of dutchmen you'd not likely to find there in REAL life and that's funny unexpected impossible hence slated to appear in tadaaaaa commercials!!!!!!! .. . . . . humor is under graver pressure, threat even, the closer it gets to hot-ego-air-bloat.

Yesterday, Youp van't Hek, the fella who's gonna do the extremely prestigious 'conferance' at new year's eve this year was on tv too (in the same program even maybe, can't remember), and outraged me quite a bit, answering a question about the fear climate (pc type stuff like affermative action has turned into an 'or else' imperative, the dutch have this thing about catering to the invalid, about catering and denaturing) that the tone is decisive and his jokes wouldn't, haven't and won't come across like threats, hence he would not be in the kinds of danger similar to the ones Theo van Gogh found himself in.

This is BETRAYAL and lies.

NOONE sounded more amicable than Theo, a bit extremely rotund guy never seen to make sudden moves, just running his mouth in a gurgly way. He couldn't sound unpleasant (even while describing the horrible effects of islamic immigration* ((the massive part of which by the way, seems to have been the result of an EU deal during the oil crisis)) which of course was taken by some to be stigmatizing but somebody like our late Theo, who is pretty fair on an individual basis can afford to stand back and try a little generalization every now and then; it wasn't Theo who bestowed radicalized Islamists with cruel powers, he called them out for it at the same time claiming they'd not hurt a village idiot) was never unpleasant; I was never THAT enamoured of Theo's work and never ran into him while living in A'dam, but he did do a great tv-series showing a cross-racial love affair and last week his slaughterer stood in court on unrelated charges with his gang, refused to answer most questions but did say Bush was the biggest problem in the world or some such criticism.

*the opposite happens to me hearing a dutch-maroccan say how he loves Holland.

To blame Islam for individual and unjust violence (you won't give me a ((lowskill)) job? I'll start robbing your old ladies, groping your young ones and carry on from there) leaves our sophisticated and industrial, removed and remoted versions out of the equation. I understand that can be maddening enough (especially for those on life support as long as they manage to fit into the dutch concrete jungles, designed to raise and rest up, never to live in) to resort to primitive violence if and when verbal forms are not available (this is what 'integration' ((you use naturalization?)) efforts have concentrated on, language rather than land).

Dualities are dynamic and a count or any other countamount never ever stops or stop at two. Who? You! and that's what I mean with and when involving and hiliting alledgedly off-topic, issues (not to mention children) confusing antagonisms, (switches and flips from individual to group psychology and back again in dizzying succesion, specially during verbal combat) more explicitly than your average spelling spartners, it's merely going deeper and higher and more multilayered, showing where to mix and where not.
Heh. Chigg and ecken. Just found what I take as a funny or sooner sadly fanatic and dualistic attempt at illustrating my point (has individuality wriggled free here or has a collective closed ranks to squeeze and stand up and out the different?) via a blog where I occasionally argue against the glorification of AI and tell them they are trying to steal the thunder of the otherwise tabooed and forbidden to apply consciously in- to organic transit, my favorite theme.
IMC-Binghamton, Not L.A. Times, Broke Story on DoD Media Scandal
Steve Peacock 12 Dec 2005 00:57 GMT
The breaking story about the U.S. military’s planting of prepackaged stories in foreign media – a “scoop” attributed to the L.A.. Times – has overlooked one critical factor: the Independent Media Center of Greater Binghamton, and not the L.A. Times, was the first media outlet across the globe to report on this propaganda-production endeavor, the brainchild of the U.S. Special Operations Command.

quoting Rowan Berkeley again

national anarchist: 5. CONDUCTING POLITICS FROM GREAT HEIGHTS (AND SIMILAR FANTASIES) One of the more comical approaches to anti-Establishment politics can be seen from those who urge that ‘we’, or ‘the white people’ or ‘the black people’ or ‘the working class’ or a particular nation or group of nations, or some other enormous social group ought to adopt some grand political position vis-à-vis some great opposition force. Perhaps one of the best examples appeared in an Internet discussion group recently when one Mr Rowan Berkeley advanced the following argument: I may as well say this, if we wish to reverse the Black colonisation of Europe and North America, we should be prepared to surrender all of Africa to the Blacks, and Australasia to the East Asians. Only an Imperial system of hegemonic States will allow Whites to keep their continental outposts without allowing Black and Asian immigration to White home continents in exchange, and conversely, only an offer to Black and Asian Nationalists of their entire continents returned will obtain their agreement to quit ours. --

Mr Berkeley responded with, inter alia, the following: My opinion is that the inherent contradiction between Jewish multiculturalism (for everybody else) and Jewish monoculturalism (for Jews) will lead to a general collapse of the moral order (now there's a disarmingly old-fashioned expression which should reassure our concerned friends who may be eavesdropping). By 'general collapse' I mean a collapse at all levels, from Buck House to the local pub. A good phrase for this (from the mostly harmless Jurgen Habermas, I think) is 'legitimation crisis'. When that happens, there will be an equally general demand for a system, of ideological wallpaper (to put it no higher) that the erstwhile multicultural States can use to reorganise themselves. Schemes for equitable and consensual population exchange will suddenly become fashionable. Except perhaps in Jewish circles, since it is not at all clear that the hodge-podge of people who are currently taught to call themselves 'Jews' actually have a homeland to go back to, qua 'Jews', the modern Jewish identity being really fictitious, a product of 19th century fantasists. Absent their various hare-brained schemes for culture- and race-mixing, though, it is perfectly possible that the world's other inhabitants will breathe a sigh of relief and start discussing the happy project of consensually unscrambling their populations. If you can't imagine that, you've lost the gift of optimism.

I'd rather think of ways to rub transparancy and their semi derivatives, air, water and clouds or steam) and secret yet sacredly grounded obscurity (rocks) together rough enough to end polarization and give way to ever renewable primordial and muddy offspring myself, haven't you?

I personally get a major kick out of Joe deconstructing Iby. Joe knows what he is doing, by deflating this Jewish Supremacist whose agenda is to say, "I'm chosen and you're not". When you ask him! what the basis of this chosenness is, what it entails, how he theologically bases it, he comes up 2 of spades, or comes up with "must suck to be you", this is an indication of the total void of his argument.

piet | Homepage | 11.24.05 - 12:15 pm | # 

Now, Piet, I tried really hard to follow your post in your
blog. I admit, most of it has got to be my own problem in understanding, because as soon as I started making a connection, the topic would go on a new tangent (Finnegan's Wake, for sure!) and I was lost. What are the suspicions? If they are that a site like this brings out a lot of agitated opinions, sometimes turning into smearing, well, that is pretty much normal for the type of subject that we have here that stimulates such an emotional response. I guess the thing is, I don't delete comments much. Otherwise, there would be just one opinion with varying shades. If the aspersions are that I in some way tolerate racism, you can rest assured that I certainly do not. But, letting an idiotic racist rant says more about him than it does about me. I have to admit, I know a lot about the Arab world, and have a special affection for the plight of the people in various Arab countries which does make me intolerant of! those who would try to paint their rights as somehow lesser. That said, I differentiate completely the categories of Zionist and Jew. The Zionists don't want that, and it can be a trap. This site is antizionist, so of course, there are going to be arguments that go really far, because unfortunately, the Zionists have painted Jews into a corner by attempting to make them into Zionists, or make people think they are. So, some articles people link up could be quite radical. I don't have editorial power over other sites, just this one, so what is up on my blog is where I stand. The comments are like a party. If some guests get drunk easier than others, the host has no control over it. ps. thanks for the compliment btw! love that bioziobait word
... very funny!!

thecutter | Homepage | 11.24.05 - 10:53 pm | # 

I was reacting to Iby's mantric use of the word "antisemite", which so pleases him precisely because it implies racial theory. My point is that it is just as legitimate to refer to judaism as "a criminal ideology" as it is to refer to nazism that way. Of course, judaism has many variants : some religious, some secular, some explicitly exclusivist, some pseudo-universalist, and so on. However, they all start from the belief in a species-like distinction between jews and all other humans. I rather suspect that the nazi theory of aryanism was merely an attempt to mirror this, since it obviously has a powerful (and pathological) solidarity effect. 

Interestingly, Lenin, Stalin, Trotsky, etc., would have agreed with me - however, they produced a theory of "nationalities" which allowed empirically existing ethnic groups to retain their traditional terrain and folkways to a considerable extent - or to receive new terrain if they had none - all of this at the expense of marxist logic. Trotsky even organised
jewish-only detachments within the Red Army (not a lot of people know that ...)!

Rowan Berkeley | 11.25.05 - 4:17 pm | # 

MHoward, you still haven't grasped my point. I would be foolish to deny that most people who define themselves as "Jews" rationalise this by saying that, even if they did not, the rest of the world would do so for them - in other words, that "being Jewish"! is an ascriptive identity.
However, this is dishonest, because until about the beginning of the twentieth century assimilation was going full pelt, in
other words, people of Jewish descent were simply walking away from their supposed "Jewish identity" - however, if we take Germany as a case for examination, we find that a sufficient proportion of these ostensible "ex-Jews" were continuing to network preferentially with other "ex-Jews" rather than with "non-ex-Jews", via Jewish Masonic lodges, unitarianism, and
other especially liberal forms of religious-civic organisation. This led to a situation like that with the so-called "Marranos" in Spain : they had cast off the label "Jews" but were still acting as a sort of state-within-a-state. This in turn led to the emergence of the racial theory - to which I myself do not subscribe - the theory that they were genetically predisposed to this behaviour and thus "couldn't help it". And this is the origin of the much loved word "anti-semitism", which the lazy minded of you now use as an excuse for being exactly what the Nazis accused you of being, on the theory that since you are being accused of it anyway you might as well do it. (give a dog a bad name)...

Rowan posts a radio station (in hebrew) 


(windows media player)

what, MHoward, you now get to decide who is Jewish enough and who is not? What sort of thought is permitted to Jewish people and what is beyond the pale? As a matter of fact, only Atzmon is an ex-Jew, having stated that he does not affiliate himself with the religion, and of course, rightly identifying Jewishness as a religion and not an ethnic group (wasn't it only some 60 years ago that Jews were fighting against being considered as a race?). Yet, the others, YOU ! ASSUME are not religious. And two of them, are actually Zionists! Lev Grinberg is a wonderful friend of mine, a brilliant individual, but he classifies himself as a cultural Zionist. Avnery is a Zionist against the occupation as well, Clement, who I also know is religious. Ilan has said he is not religious, but he considers himself culturally a Jew, and Amnon and Shamai, I don't personally know, but I don't assume they are atheists. I have no way of knowing, although they consider themselves Jews, so I 

imagine they ARE Jews. There are others on my blog, just run down the menu there,
Hanna Braun, Neve Gordon, Jeff Blankfort, Avigail Abarbanel, Meron Benvenisti, Oren Ben Dor, Akiva Orr, Dorothy Naor, Ariella Atzmon, Gideon Levy, Uri Avnery, Zvi Schuldiner, Naomi Klein, Michel Warschawski, Lea Tsemel, Greta Berlin, Lenni Brenner, Benyamin Merhav, Juliano Mer Khamis, Ran HaCohen....There are articles about Tali Fahima, the Refusniks,
Machsom Watch people, why are they less Jewish simply because they don't support the Zionist dream the way you see it and don't accept Jewish supremacy? 

You will notice, thier is not one article that mentions, worries or thinks about Jewish pain due to the sucide bombings.

"Jewish pain" -
never to be confused with actaul human pain of course -

"Jewish pain" is something special, something the rest of us aren't privy to, hence its non-appearance on blogs, and what have you, that are actually sane and rational and make no claims to 'mysticism' Jewish or otherwise, and so can pass no verdict comment or opinion on something that isn't accessible
to mere ordinary non-Jewish mortals.

Cutter - the exact translation is "bring him up as an offering upon one of the mountains..." The clear instruction is to bring him up and prepare him as an offering, with the intention of sacrifice but there being no command yet to actually sacrifice Isaac.

You have to read the actual hebrew, not some Christian translation. After all, adam never knew anyone named Eve. But he did know Chava. -- IT

Any analogies to the holocaust you care to make?

in the next exchange of comments you are handed a piece of truth
(about christian language; not something to take one way
as done here but that's not the point at the moment)
and then in turn pretend to proffer it (rather than thanking profusely and instilling the need and use to next generations) with the air of outrage over ingrate refusal. That's the kind of table turning anyone aspiring to functional employment of and within the jewish mindset rather than it's bleeding edges best master cause a sense of superiority has to become as genuine as second ature can get. Betrayal of any and all firsts made a matter of principle thereby.

Only within the last few years have I made a quantum leap in understanding how the magician, stage craftee and priest can cultivate this supremacy simply by letting a select few family members into his timing and reasoning behind the switchy swatches from literal to metaphor, from phys to meta and from dust to diamond; the story of the loaves and fishes, taken by
christians as unique and surely miraculous whereas it was a mere manner of expressing priestly status for so many of them until that trouble maker ruined the distinguished title of land and seafood provider for a while or forever
(I am really not up on jewish customs that well nor do ever wanna be; matter of fact I'd like to see ALL holy books drown in waves of laughter or otherwise die the humurous and merciful deaths by divestment and disinterest rather than the violence provoked by disavowal of the obvious which builds tension, corrupts and makes everything unliveable unaffordable and unhealthy).

7 pages worth of images for 'WIDE AND NARROW WAY' do not turn up any relevant ones.

Av accuses me of lying; I go: I wasn't exactly lying, just forgot to change the comment after
deciding to quote the 2 lines in question
(after all, instead of just the time stamp) but leaving out the pre- and succeeding (opening and closing) ones (adding to four for sure) but you, as usual are too eager to show spokesmen for, identifiers with and aspirers to the ones who like to win by hook and/or crook up for the unpleaseant folk such are regardless of race origin and itinerary, leading me to conclude you might just be an antisemite who thinks he is clever at impersonation just for sticking with it.

Piet, here are example of the civil discourse encouraged by cutter mary:

Jewish pain" - never to be confused with actaul human pain of course --- joe90 

Whether or not this latest focus on a virtual pin-head is
really related, 

Gerry Hiles 

It concentrates historical relevance on Jewish problems of local events under the aspect of personal experience. This is the reason why most of the memoirs and reports are full of
preposterous verbosity, graphomanic exaggeration, dramatic effects, overestimated self-inflation, dilletante philosophizing, would-be lyricism, unchecked rumors, bias, partisan attacks and apologies. The question thus arises whether participants of such a world-shaking epoch can at all be its historians and whether the time has already come when
valid historic judgment, free of partisanship, vindictiveness and ulterior motives, is possible."

you are quoting out of context big time; leads me to wonder if you either have no humor, no irony, lotsa mirrorphobia, fear of anything beyond ultra-subjective pictures, a case of uncurious ageold scapegoaterism (to pathological invalidate disown and project the impression you make on others without exception) or all at once.

I forgot to mention sarcasm .. .

by the way, I replied after reading the quotes under mistaken assumption Av made that (8:38) comment, I've read the rest now too adn see it's a comment by Rowan. Heh.

Are you saying she ought to prune uncouth language?

Turn this blog into bonsai?

If Mary is an undercover zionist out to collect and tease out proof of violent intention, prosecutable flamage etcetera, Av is her best bait
(seeing reality ((move)) only and exclusively
in terms of violence, much like rightwingers howling about Ward Churchill's wish to 'see the USA off the planet altogether', never admitting he might think of and prefer peaceful secession
((he's easy, would go either way))). Personally I am weighing chances Av could be an anti-semite who thinks he is clever for playing the villain so consistently, taking perverse pride in impersonating the mindset 'sporters' who's favorite historical
bludgeon is not just a but THE holocaust and who's edge on violent praxis he
(and the likes of him) would love to take over.

this comments board is getting mighty crowded, and i will try to put my €0.02 in (just got a new keyboard with the Euro sign, so humour me). I will start with the latest post, and try to move upwards, if not exactly onwards.

piet: WHO am I quoting out of context big time? I generally include complete texts in my articles, Have I a sense of humour? I like to think so, but only my hairdresser knows for sure. And WHAT in the world do I have to do with scapegoating?

Joe: this is the problem with MH. He wants to decide what the correct Jewish thought is, who a real Jew is. It might be good for him to open his eyes and find out that not everyone accepts his tribal and racist world view.

MHoward: welcome to INTERNET! it's a crazy place where you write an article and find it simultaneously on: a far right, a far left, a wacko, a religious, an atheist, a humour, a political discussion etc site... people pick up whatever! Looking up things about maps, I would find the most Zionist ones on Christian sites, if you want to know. Do you like those strange bedfellows? But, you seem to tolerate them fairly well enough.

As to the Islamic Jihad, I don't remember ever mentioning support for them. Those who have followed this blog from the outset know two things: I am only interested in giving whatever service I can to seeing that the Palestinian people get their rights. If this means through elections, they have every right on this earth to have the parties run that they feel are going
to resolve their situation. You look at Hamas as suicide bombers, the Palestinians see them as a political and social force with a militia. The other thing you learn from this blog is that it is about time to start thinking out of the box:

Two states for two people is not going to work. Right now MH, you are probably supporting it, three years ago, I bet not... ideas develop and one has got to stop thinking about what's best for the tribe. You can't divide Palestine, you never could. It is time to realise this. If Jews are happy to live as equal citizens in the land they took, I think they will be able to do that. Otherwise, they are going to have to be ready for permanent war, because there will always be a Palestinian people, and they will not be crushed no matter what suits you and your family out there in Massachusetts.

ya know piet, I HAVE been accused of being an undercover zionist before. The first time, it shocked me, because I haven't got a zionist cell in my body, but I realise it is because these ideas of more militant solidarity are beyond the things the left gatekeepers want, and to keep themselves
central to the discourse, they discredit anyone or anything outside of it.

sorry about the confusium, I WAS responding to 'IT' I think y'all call him (why?) who was quoting 5 'boarders' here to prove his choosyness
(nose for choice bits of . . . eh .. .I guess he sees them as indictables, attacks, exhibits or something).

unpublished: I don't know what Gilad sounds like (neither voice nor saxophornblowwise) but the next link goes to a person who audibly illustrates some of that stereotypically bizarre mix of intellectualism (in the sense of fevered dreams and visions of social software,
lefty flavored grey matter farming the old fashioned way, via books by marx in this case)
with patriarchal drive to win. 
the one at the top linked from here:

'anger'? 'power'? thinning/spreading minerals from rocks, trees in a forest, people out of cities

God why can't these terminally brought up short 'alphabeateikels'
(eikels = dicks) focus on thinning? Why herd people into masses and pull godgiven diversity forsaking pile, (ac)count, and store beyond town size scope and scale games?

Excellent!!!!!!!!! sticking feathers enemies let fly at you to attempt derogation and bad light painting in your hat is a pride taking process caught in the single dutch word 'geuzennaam'
(from the days they fought/inundated the spanish, then very much under semito expansion spell and sponsorship ((ask the forest sprites how lovely they think that word)), pretty irrelevant wether Moor or jew no? They certainly had to learn deal with waves of both since then), an anglo-recent example would be 'queer'. * 
short but highly enlightening file; here's a quote:
"Joseph’s story teaches that
security comes not from aligning yourself with those with power and strength, but from working together with the poorest in society and promoting justice for the oppressed. If you seek only your own welfare, and persecute others to achieve it, you may become persecuted yourself. The text contains a timeless message: none of us are free until all of us are free."
--- typical case of left ziomarxism scolding the left ziocapitalism? Anyway, I was onboard for this part already, it goes a little farther than that thoug: "Rather than simply a means to survive a famine, Joseph’s plan can be read as a self-fulfilling prophecy. By taking away the people’s surpluses , they were forced into agricultural overproduction, and the over farming of the land is the chief cause of the resultant famine. The programme is simply a means for the state to take control, to overthrow a localised ,
autonomous society, and turn it into a centralised autocracy, similar to the use of enclosure in English history."

I am looking for an opportunity to locate all the instances he creates similes, coins expression and uses metaphors with 'philister' as prominent ingredient. He was an agnostic independent journal publisher using very lingwinded, contorted, flowery grace note and sidelines filled styles. The jews of Vienna were often targets of his misprision, derision and

Colt, have you read the books yet that T.J.Madison recommended to you? Here are a few more: Naeimi Giladi, BenGurion's Scandals: How the Haganah and the Mossad eliminated Jews and Wilbur Crane Eveland, Ropes of Sand. The report of the former Israeli and present U.S. citizen, Naemi Giladi, on Zionist anti-Jewish (and anti-American) activities in the Iraq of around 1950 can also be read on the website of Neturei Karta (Jews united against Zionism). Giladi, a former Iraqi Jew, claims that the Jewish community of Iraq, which had been living for generations in that country in relative peace, was induced to migrate to Israel by an underground Zionist bombing campaign. His view is backed up by the late Wilbur Crane Eveland, a former senior officer of the CIA, in his book Ropes of Sand. 

Eveland states that the 1950 attacks in Baghdad on the United States Information Service Library (a favorite gathering place for young Jews)and on various synagogues came from Zionist agents and that the US Embassy received at the time conclusive proof of that. These bits of information seem all the more relevant today in view of the complaints about an increase in the number of anti-Semitic incidents in France. Recently the Jewish Agency delared that it wanted at least 10,000 French Jews to migrate to Israel. Sharon has also publicly hammered on this theme in his usual bull-in- the-China shop way. Who is behind some of these alleged anti-Semitic incidents? There are scarce bits of information. On the 18th of May Le Monde reported that the 17th Chamber of the 'tribunal correctionel' in Paris had sentenced Alexander Moise to a suspended prison term of two months and a fine. Moise,the head of the "French Friends of Israel's Likud Party" organization, had confessed that the alleged threatening and insulting telephone calls, regarding which he had filed a complaint in January, came from himself. In short, Mr.Madison doesn't seem 'unhinged' to me at all. He has just been less selective in gathering information than is commonly the case with the 'friends of Israel'.

Baghdad's youngest Jew : I wish Saddam could return 

In Saddam's day, there was the rule of law, there was safety. Now I dare not let my daughter out of the house. She won't be able to complete her studies. This is what the Americans have
brought", said Subhiyya What good is that to us. Look at our houses, look at the way we
live … has democracy put food on our tables, safety on our streets, electricity in our homes. Saddam did all these
things," Nidhal replied Not completely out of representation , but it has to be said
that Saddam loved his Jews (and Christians) ...... a little bias from their side cannot be shoved aside
that easily. 

There are fewer than 20 Jews living in Baghdad, almost all to
be found in the al-Bitawin district. Down from over 125,000 less than 60 years ago.
Nidhal Salhi , the community's youngest member, is in her late 40s: I was born here, I was brought up here, all my friends are here
– why on earth should I want to leave? Sometimes I cry that I have no children and that I'm the last of my people – but I
love my home and Baghdad.

Baghdad's oldest Jew, Yaqub told the gathering that no Jew would ever have left Iraq if it hadn't been for the British.
Baghdad Jews: Exodus or extinction-Lawrence Smallman
Interesting no ....... Otheadp ? Im sure hes just delirious ....

The story of Iraqi Jews is told by an ex-zionist Jew , Naem Giladi : Iraqi

The story of Yemenite Jewry might be of interest as well: Yemenite Jews
-- Both I have dealt with in my thread already The Jewish Question ( , so I will not elab! orate on this particular issue any
further. More importantly is the future , and Iraqi Jewry is threatened with extinction. Allthough I do not forsee some vivid return
of all our Jewish peoples , I do hope that a few might consider to go home, their real home , and rebuild their ancient
communitites. Perhaps Naem himself could hook up with miss Nidhal and make
some nice Hebrew babies :D (if she still can)

Stuff from such sites is indeed dangerous but only in the sense any
