  • Don Paul dies at 89; helped L.A. Rams to NFL championship

    Never heard of Don Paul, though I consider myself a quite knowledgeable sports historian. I did know, though, that the Rams were good in the early 1950s.

    Presume he's no relation to Ron Paul or Rand Paul.

    Now, without researching it (which is dangerous), I’m pretty confident in saying there were not many Jewish slave/plantation owners in the South. Whatever number there was was miniscule at best. I’d say most were of English/Irish/Scottish descent. I call BS on that theory.

    You are absolutely right. There were some Jews in the pre-Civil War South, but not very many, and most were in cities like Charleston, SC and New Orleans, and had urban-connected professions and occupations. Only a very few were large landowners.

    The estimated price for their services appear to be high but the training, education, and monetary layout to treat the cat price wise should be commensurate with the same amount other professions get for their services. Unfortunately, veterinarians are the lowest paid professionals on average within the medical community and yet have the most extensive and competitive education. If I had the money that I had donated in services and bad debts I could retire comfortably.

    I can understand where you are coming from, vetvetdoug, but when you compare veterinary doctors to human doctors, you have to admit you are better off in one way: you don't have to deal with Medicare, Medicaid, Obamacare, nor (for the most part) with insurance companies.

    Blacks or Arabs? I’ve endured similar, always from one of the two.

    I was going to say the exact same thing, though fortunately I've never been victimized by sleazebags like these. If it's not blacks or Arabs, I'd be shocked. They are the two most anti-Semitic groups in the US statistically, Arabs first and blacks second. And there are enough of both in Brooklyn to make that a very very likely probability.

    The PC New York Daily News gives no description of the suspects. Wonder why?

  • Bachmann: Obama Wants ‘Illiterate’ Immigrants as New Dem Voters

    Outgoing Representative Michele Bachmann (R-MN) told reporters Wednesday that President Barack Obama was seeking to grant legal protection to millions of “illiterate” immigrants who would then become Democratic voters by 2016.

    Bachmann is absolutely right about ILLITERATE (with respect to English), and unlike so many cowering RINOs, she isn't afraid to call it like it is!!!

    The downside is that she's leaving Congress, where she has been an effective spokesperson for the conservative cause.

    Now why is it that in setting immigration policy, the riffraff are so coddled and the more educated and skilled among the immigrants aren't prioritized?

    Presstitute Cokie Roberts was quoted elsewhere as saying (words to that effect): "Obama better scurry to grab the illegal vote....b/c Democrats aren't getting anymore white votes for a long time."

    Is Cokie Roberts still a regular with Stephanopoulos and George Will on that ABC Sunday morning show? (Haven't watched that in a long time.)

    As far as Cokie is concerned, I'm sure she considers herself white and still votes 'Rat, the party of her late father congressman and the MSM. So how does she reconcile her being both white and a 'Rat with her statement that seems to indicate that 'Rats are poison to the whites? (Of course, hypocrisy and duplicity on the left is to be taken as a given.)

    This is a pretty good article by Daniel Greenfield. What he neglects to mention, though, is that white Democrats have been vanishing for about 50 years, though the trend is accelerating in the Age of Obama, fueled by the rhetoric of racial divisiveness. Fifty years ago, in 1964, Lyndon Johnson became the last Democratic presidential candidate to capture the majority of the white vote nationally! Since then (please correct me if I'm wrong on this), no Dem presidential candidate has even won a plurality of the white vote.

    America’s current populous now actually seems to be more interested in intelligence, historical knowledge, ethics, and morality in greater percentage than even during the Revolution, but not yet any majority. This gives me faith that the pendulum may very well be again swinging back to the vision of the Founding Fathers and away from the anti-American “liberal progressives” and anarchists.

    You are certainly more optimistic than most. Certainly, what we have now in Washington in the White House, Congress, and even the Supreme Court does NOT reflect a knowledgeable and virtuous population.

    Tonight's forecast Obama executive order on immigration emphasizes the decadence. Not only is this current president acting in defiance of the constitutional separation of powers by writing law himself, but the substantive content of his executive order will lead to even further decadence by promoting even a greater influx of uneducated, unskilled individuals with, for the most part, no understanding of the American republican constitutional tradition and no willingness to learn about it!

    It has always seemed that vote fraud, regardless of how its done, is inherently un-American and contemptuous of the basic concept of freedom and human rights.

    How the vote cheaters are able to rationalize this dishonorable practice is hard to understand.

    Agreed 100% with the first statement, as any true American patriot who supports a constitutional republic would. But the sad truth is that overall ethics and morality (and intelligence) in American society have declined in the last several decades, caused by left-oriented public education and lesser intelligence of the younger generations on average. Without a substantial level of intelligence, historical knowledge, ethics, and morality within a population, that population is susceptible to frittering away its birthright as heirs to the "last best hope of mankind."

    Without that moral and ethical base and historical knowledge and intelligence, cheaters value political office and power above the maintenance of the free and fair election procedures that have been the foundation of our American freedoms and system of governance since the founding.

    Republicans allege that some Democrats changed their party affiliation to sign up as Republican election judges in key counties.

    Of all the methods used (preponderantly by 'Rats) over a century or more to cheat in elections, I had never heard of exactly this one before, though there are some locations, mostly in inner cities, where no Republican poll watchers are brave enough to go.

    This is especially significant in a state like Colorado which went to essentially an all mail-in ballot system this year. Thus all ballots had to be handled in some respect by election officials after they had been completed by voters and returned.

    Colorado Republicans are extremely fortunate that they could gain a clear-cut victory in the Senate race under such adverse conditions.

    Hopefully, the GOP SOS in Colorado will be able to get to the bottom of this mess and the cheating election judges will pay a price.

    If you are student in a college here, all it takes is an affirmation that you are intending to stay here. Students could vote in their home state (depending on the rules there/absentee) and vote in AZ.

    Now that rule just plain opens the door to double voting. Especially in a college city like Tucson, which is in the disputed district, from what I infer.

    Plus, a person who votes in more than one state in the same FEDERAL election is committing a FEDERAL crime.

    All the other rules make some sense.

    BTW, pardon my lack of knowledge on this, but can you elaborate on what "connect the arrows on a paper ballot" means.

    One reason for Republicans to be optimistic: In contrast to similar situations in other states in the past, the GOP controls the state administration and SOS office in AZ.

    Pretty good chance that the 'Rat lawyers here are consulting with Al Franken's Minnesota cheaters.

    Actually, the Democrats were quite conservative until FDR came under the influence of socialistic academics.

    Apparently you overlooked Woodrow Wilson, at least with respect to social and economic policy. Wilson was a socialistic academic himself, a Princeton president who wrote books and articles lambasting the Constitution as an anachronistic impediment to his proposed "progressive" agenda. Then, as President of the US, he introduced the country to such novelties (at the time) of a peacetime federal income tax, direct election of the Senate, a Federal Reserve System, and tougher antitrust laws and enforcement.

    On foreign policy, though, you could view Wilson as an interventionist war monger, who went far beyond even what most "conservatives" today would embrace.

    Well, I got the joke.

    Not entirely a joke. There is a historical connection between the small-town/rural Jews of the Czarist Empire, which is the basis for the musical/film "Fiddler on the Roof," and the adoption of leftist/socialist politics which were transplanted to the US by Jewish immigrants from that time frame and that part of the world. The irrational part of it is that a lot of that mentality still persists today, even though leftist ideology and policy has run counter to Jewish well-being and even survival in the US, Israel, and around the world for decades.

    MOST American Jews don't give a crap about Israel.

    My guess is that if you subdivided American Jews into those who have been to Israel and those who have not, you would see a distinct difference in attitude and a distinct difference in voting patterns.

    It has been reported, for example, that in the last presidential election, about 85% of Americans abroad in Israel voted for Romney vs. Obama. Of course, this is a relatively small vote and is spread out among a bunch of states so it hardly ever gets mentioned.

    The American Jews need to grow up and start voting like they want USA to survive ( and as a land of liberty, not an islamoNazi police state). They can vote for either major party in most years - that’s just fine. — but they definitely should not support the D party now that, while the nazis have seized control of it.

    From this Jewish conservative perspective, I couldn't have put it much better. Voting for the party of Obama is masochistic for American Jews, and for many others as well.

    Of course voting Republican for Senate and/or House isn't any guarantee of all that much change in the climate in Washington over the next few years, but at least it's a first step for pushback against the 'Rats' dictatorship.

    ...the red in the [Nazi] flag was adopted to make it easier for communists and socialists to switch to the Nazi Party.

    Hard to understand that. I don't think that the Nazis did much of an outreach to the communists and socialists, but rather treated them as enemies in Germany, even though the Nazis themselves had "socialist" in the party name. For example, the infamous Reichstag fire in 1933 was blamed on a Dutch communist, and socialists and communists (as well as others who didn't follow the Nazi line) were forced out of the Reichstag (parliament) soon after Hitler was named chancellor.

    I know that for a two year period between 1939-41 when the Nazi-Soviet non-aggression pact was intact, communists around the world, including in the US, were silent as Hitler started WWII and Germany invaded and occupied quite a number of European nations. Then the communists worldwide reversed themselves again in June 1941 when the Germans launched their surprise attack on the Soviets.

    J Street released a poll that stated that Jews agree more with Obama than Netanyahu, but it is J Street that did the poll; therefore, I don’t believe it or anything else they say.

    Yes, you can believe a J Street poll about as much as you can believe an article by Prof. Jonathan Gruber on Obamacare c. 2009-2010 or an oration by Ms. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz on anything.

    BTW, in case you didn't notice, the article that began this thread came from a left-leaning publication, The Atlantic. It doesn't specifically say which poll they got their data on Jewish voting from. However, from the title "Are the Democrats Losing the Jews?", it would appear that they are at least a bit alarmed at the trend.

    While Jewish voters remain overwhelmingly liberal and left-wing, the Left utterly hates and detests Israel, has nothing but contempt for it. Meanwhile, the GOP and religious conservatives are much more pro-Israel.

    From this Jewish Republican viewpoint, I'd say that American Jews are really tending more toward the right as Obama turns increasingly against Israel and as his domestic policies prove detrimental to the lives of Jews and others. It's not such an "overwhelming" advantage for the left compared to what it once was.

    Remember that the figures quoted in the posted article were done by exit polling and relate only to House candidates in the one particular district the interviewee happens to vote. Remember also that the polling is done by left-leaning groups with biases in that direction. I for one can't understand how you can get a reasonable random sample of exit poll interviewees that can represent the American Jewish community as a whole, given the very few election precincts that the pollsters can be working as compared to the whole.

    Then, too, disproportionately more of these Jewish voters would be in House districts that are overwhelmingly 'rat, so much so that the GOP candidate for House, who may not even exist, would not put up much of an effort and would not be sufficiently recognized and known. Even furthermore, these pollsters, because of their biases and because of social and language barriers, would likely be interviewing disproportionately fewer Republican Jewish voters, who would represent higher percentages among the subgroups of Orthodox and newer Russian immigrant Jews and their families. All these factors would tend to increase the reported Democrat % of the Jewish vote for House candidates so as to make it a few points higher than the real number.

    Garbage in, garbage out, at least to some extent.

    Please, regardless of whatever else you may say about him, George Wallace was NOT anti-Jewish at all. From what I've heard from a Jewish guy who lived in Montgomery at the time Wallace was governor, Wallace had friendly relations with the Jewish community there, and reputedly even had some Jewish relatives via intermarriage. To the best of my knowledge (in contrast to other prominent Democrats like FDR and Truman whom the posted article conveniently ignores), no anti-Semitic statements, writings, or actions were ever attributed to him.

    ...Silvio Canto at American Thinker recently asked “What Happened to ‘Demographics’?” in a piece in which he says that “people of color…don’t automatically vote Democrat.”

    What exactly are "people of color"? Every human being on the planet, except for albinos, is a person "of color," because his or her skin contains melanin to some degree or another. So it's apparent that from the purely scientific viewpoint, Caucasians are "people of color" just as much as those other groups usually denoted as such.

    It's bad enough that some idiots on the left made up that asinine phrase a few years ago. It's even worse that some so-called "conservatives," as in this article, are using it as well.

    Words and phrases do have consequences; use of "people of color" merely enhances bigotry and divisiveness. It used to be that the Census Bureau and other government agencies used the term "non-whites," which still seems preferable and more accurate.

    Republican candidate Dan Sullivan defeated Democratic incumbent Sen. Mark Begich in Alaska’s U.S. Senate race Wednesday.

    Something tells me this is just a FoxNews "call," not an official result. Nor has Begich conceded nor has Sullivan claimed victory yet.

    From what I understand, Alaska will not have all the votes counted officially until the day after Thanksgiving.

    Speaking of the Alaska races and vote count, yesterday there was an article posted on FR with an accompanying photo of two elderly women in Alaska examining a paper ballot. The blurb under the photo said that the ballot was not recorded with an optical scanning device, so the two women were trying to detect if there were any stray marks on the ballot to explain why the scanner failed. Yes, it has to remind us of Florida 2000 and Minnesota 2006 - hanging chads, undervotes, overvotes, etc., etc.

    It looks like there is a special connection between the Fraud Machine and Barack Obama. I.e.: when he’s on the ballot, the real $ and the real pros are engaged, and all the stops are pulled out. The effort is monumental—and it pays off.

    When Obama is not on the ballot the Fraud Machine makes a genuine effort, but it just doesn’t have the juice. The biggest $ and the vast army of professional cheaters isn’t out in force. The effort falls short.

    I would agree with you to a certain extent. The fraud machine is in part racially motivated. It doesn't work quite as well when the 'Rats have white candidates running.

    Nor do the baseless fears the 'Rats try to instill in prospective black voters by tarring Republicans as the new segregationists.

    As to election fraud and cheating in general, perhaps there was a little bit of legal pushback this year with a few more states requiring photo IDs and more Republican secretaries of state somewhat more aware of the problems and somewhat more willing to combat them.

    Unfortunately, this can ultimately work to the advantage of the 'Rats in the future, since the subject of cleaning up elections could be put on the back burner as too many winning Pubbies and conservatives become complacent about the vote fraud issue.

    One wonders just what Herr Gruber is a perfesser of, exactly?

    On the record, he's a professor of economics. But economics on the college campuses these days, with the notable exception of a handful of institutions, is socialist economics.

    Having never heard of this Jonathan Gruber at all in the past, certainly not as the "architect of Obamacare," I've tried to get a bit of background info on him. Seems like one of those typical leftist academic types that leftist government hacks call upon to do their dirty work for them. Of course, he has no experience in delivering health care in any way, shape or form, but merely enjoys dictating his mandates through the imprimatur of government to cause harm to millions about whom he doesn't give a darn.

    One thing that strikes me about this Gruber that's not mentioned in his Wikipedia biography: I have a hunch that in his youth he might have been a Red Diaper Baby, and possibly was familiar with Alinsky's "Rules for Radicals."

    They’re fed-up voters in bright blue Oregon — a whopping 941,042 of them, to be exact — who overwhelmingly rejected a ballot measure to provide special driver’s licenses “without requiring proof of legal presence in the United States.”

    So if Oregon doesn't want to issue the "special" driver's licenses, they'll just go south to California, where Governor "Moonbeam" will throw a welcoming bash for them and gladly agree with his compliant legislature to do whatever they want the state government to do.

    Ugh! That list is disgusting - filled to the gills with gun-grabbing, socialism-spouting, arrogant liberal @ssholes. Yup, those are supposed to be my people - but they don’t represent me AT ALL.

    Dittos. You might have added that a few of them are real nut jobs missing a screw or two upstairs, like Wasserman-Schultz and Grayson.

    BTW, who among that list of 'Rat Jewish congresscritters might not be back for the 114th? Didn't Henry Waxman retire?

    There are a fair number of Jews been around Free Republic for a while. Like me. H*ll, my son has been a member since '01. So, I take that as a good sign.

    Another good sign: the steadily increasing membership in the Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC), from where the lead article in this thread was taken.

    73% of Asians supported Obama in 2012, according to NEP, which is the exit polling service used by every major news organization in America.

    Whatever NEP stands for, let's not get carried away by exit polling results because it's very difficult to understand how exit poll results have much credibility at all as determinants of final real vote percentages.

    The major problem is how on earth do you reach a true random sample of voters in a particular election contest when you obviously only have the limited personnel to interview a very scant number of voters in just a smattering of election districts, and those interviewees self-select themselves by their cooperation with the interviewers?

    When it comes to a small subgroup like Asians, the general exit polling statistical problems are further exacerbated because of the even smaller number of interviewees available, the frequent cultural differences between interviewer and interviewee, and the basic fact that "Asians" consist of so many different nationalities and cultures. Somewhat similar problems arise with exit polling re Jews.

    So my gut impression is that exit polling and results obtained thereby are garbage in, garbage out, especially when you are dealing with small minority groups of voters. And that in turn just tarnishes the MSM's credibility and reliability even more, if that's possible.

    As secular Jews move to the suburbs and and adopt the political views of their non-Jewish neighbors, they also lose their identity as Jews. That naturally leaves more identifiable Jews as libs than not.

    I don't quite understand that logic. If Jews move to the suburbs, do they come more conservative politically yet lose their Jewish identity? If that's a major trend, then why are more identifiable Jews (e.g. Orthodox or more recent immigrants) generally considered MORE conservative than more assimilated Jews? Seems like we have a paradox there.

    I don't agree. Zeldin voted against the "Marriage Equality Act", the SAFE Act (gun grab) and the NY Dream Act (illegals). He also was Army Intelligence, served in the 82nd Airborne in Iraq, and entered the reserves with the rank of Major. If that's a RINO, then I need to reconsider the term.

    Thanks for the info. But Zeldin was attacked repeatedly by his primary opponent in this year's race as a big taxer and for facilitating the implementation of Obamacare in New York, among other issues.

    Bennet won't be the chair of the DSCC for long, because (1) his results were abysmal and (2) he's up for re-election in 2016.
