  1. Naw, they’re not the same person. I’ve met both on separate occasions.
  2. Who are you to speak for the Jewish people? You’re not even a member of the tribe ffs.
  3. K thx. Kind of a weird/sad attempt at a flex, but whatever floats your boat, Bobby.
  4. They’re like the David Duke crowd as far as it goes. They loathe Jews, but prefer to see them over there because it ushers in some disjointed prophecy. Theyre much more in line with the totalitarians that persecuted my people for centuries than they’d like to admit.
  5. Apparently if you’re not a right wing waterhead, you’re an anti semite…lol(rip samo). I mean sure, I had family killed in the Holocaust, and have family in Israel, but apparently I must be self-hating…lol (rip samo)
  6. Was at the 4th St station too, just a stones throw from his box’s usual location out at Washington Square…lol
  7. I’ll bet you were one of those folks during the 2003 Iraq invasion that had a magnet yellow ribbon collection, constantly yapping that if you were against the war, you hated the troops…that level of cognitive dissonance here…lol(rip samo)
  8. Poor guy couldn’t even afford a proper obit. I wondered why I hadn’t seen him around lately. Must have decayed in that old box of his out in Alphabet City. RIP Legend. God gained another angel today.
  9. SCOTUS can’t nullify the 14th, nor would they.
  10. Every one of these things creates blowback. USSR v Mujahadeen gave us Al Qaeda Israel v PLO at the Lebanon Neutral Site and it’s occupation of South Lebanon spawned Hezbollah US v Saddam 2.0 and our support for Jihadis v Secular Dictators created ISIS outposts across the region etc etc The right wing extremists that control Israel are a major part to blame in all of this too, they’ve built up a lot of oppression, and have more or less kept Hamas in power the same way our sanctions kept the Castros around. Bibi is a deplorable human being, who quite frankly, is unfit for office. Sending a bunch of young kids into an urban meatgrinder of a mess largely of his (and his allies’) own making is terrible. Status quo only festers a wound, bombing to smithereens only rips it open more. I’d love to see a more moderate bunch take the reins in Israel, but it seems like rage is the cat’s meow these days.
  11. Give the people what they want. If they want to vote for Orange Julius Caesar, they should be able to. It’s pure lunacy because he’s never been convicted of anything, that’s the asinine part. Major Ass Guzzlers Anonymous, obnoxious as they are, should be able to speak through the ballot box.
  12. https://406mtsports.com/college/big-sky-conference/montana-state-university/kane-ioane-nevada-football-choate-msu/article_83653d7a-9917-11ee-a7bf-474b3a283db6.html You’re getting a good one. Amazing kid from an amazing family.
  13. Barak, much like Rabin several years before, didn’t have popular support at home, and only tried to set these up in an attempt to hastily save face after his previous negotiations with old man Assad in Syria failed. Desperate, he wanted to use the last few months of Bill’s presidency to try something for any sort of a W. In all reality, the summit should probably never have taken place. The summit itself was ill-conceived and ill-advised at the time. Barak and Arafat were both held hostage to the politics in their respective jurisdictions at the time; Barak’s gov’t literally came unraveled at that summit ffs. The Israelis weren’t willing to play ball on Jerusalem and didn’t consider the right of return, plus gave a really shitty attempt at a land grant…have you ever seen the map? Probably not. The sauce here, too, that you’re clinging to like Charlton Heston is a generalized opinion piece masquerading as news on the ADL… that’s like getting an unbiased account on Jan. 6th from the Hannity show lol. I’ve been to Israel countless times and still have family there, please spare me the faux intellectual superiority you’re trying to broadcast because you read a slanted opinion article on the Internet is. Congrats, you’re as shitty at paraphrasing as you are at life lulz.
  14. They’ve been in favor of one since 1988. Or is the UN not a reputable source, Mr. Birch? https://www.un.org/unispal/document/auto-insert-178680/ Your analysis is garbage and terribly misinformed lol. The Palestinians aren’t a monolithic Muslim bloc, nor is the greater Middle East. There are a number of Christians throughout the region. Also, let’s not forget that Israel and Lebanon nearly had a peace deal in the 1980s when the Phalangists controlled Beirut’s government. Let’s also not forget that Israel and Iran were once great allies before the rise of Khomeini. Additionally, the Saudis and Israelis have long cooperated (as have a number of Gulf nations) on a number of issues, albeit not in an official capacity, and there was nearly a deal between the Assad government in Syria and Israel prior to the war breaking out in that country in 2011. Are there hostile parties? Yes. That can’t be disputed. There are bankrolling individuals in the Persian Gulf that fund the atrocities like 10/7. But there are individuals within Israel such as Bibi and Ariel Sharon who have moved the needle of death other directions too. Bottom line is, we’ve reached a point where the hardline extremists have control of their respective parties, and this is the fallout. I have relatives in Israel and am close with many Palestinians. Please spare me the “yOu DoNt KnOw ShIt FrOm ShInoLa!!!1!!” rhetoric, Dog Man, and go back to slinging stories about the time you and your hairless cats washed Eddie Vedder’s rhinestone thong in your little grass shack in Kealakekua, Hawaii. You’re better at that.
  15. No it didn’t. Both parties threw up a one-time Hail Mary that was a flawed approach. There was never movement on a right of return, there was never movement on Jerusalem. It was never a serious attempt at negotiation by either side. The only way you’d ever see any serious movement is the pre-1967 borders, which Israel isn’t willing to entertain at this point. The Palestinians have accepted the reality of a two-state solution through their Declaration of Independence in 1988, but you can’t offer a square mile in Hell’s Half Acre and say you seriously are negotiating. Israel already comprises almost 80% of the former Palestine, how much more is enough? Again, I’m in favor of a one-state solution, it would benefit everyone as a whole. It’ll never happen, but it should. Both peoples have competing claims to the land, and really have coexisted rather peacefully for eons before 1948. There’s two sets of polarized extremists running each actor currently, leading to the blood-filled mess we’re in. Also, brush up on your insult game a bit there, too. I know it must be hard molesting collies as a cuckolded Wal Mart tax preparer who lives in his in-laws’ basement broom closet with the wit of the autistic, but still, maybe try harder?
  16. Weren’t Cub fans all colored green (with envy) until 2016? lol You’re putting in strong work on this thread, I’ve enjoyed reading your thoughts.
  17. Lulz. You’re not talking about the peace “deals” in the 90s right? Those were flawed from the start for a number of reasons, many that could individually fill their own books. They’ve never (to my knowledge) offered Palestine any sovereignty. The original deal that Bill brokered in the 90s had about the closest thing you could get to it, but it still didn’t cross the proverbial goal line. Read some stuff before you shut dumbassery from the digital rooftops.
  18. Maybe the Donkos can get Joe Philbin. He was on HBO once, has a life tragedy that sells, and is hella good at making PowerPoints. Trifecta of success there Carl, I’ll tell ya what. If not Joe, maybe Carl Selmer. He’s familiar with the region, having gotten his start at Worland (WY) HS. No idea if he was a fan of Ranchito or not. Plus, he has ties to Florida, would be great for recruiting!
  19. Anyone who professes full support for one side over the other who doesn’t have a real dog in this fight besides they really like to try to pretend to be this week’s socioeconomic global fad expert du jour, they’re wearing some serious blinders. Every belligerent involved has blood on their hands in this gong show of reality. The Israelis poked the hornet’s nest by expanding their aggressive settlement policies during their descent into near civil war with Bibi on his 9,000th political life after selling his left nut (the last horucrux of his soul) to the right wing extremists to stay in power, the country got into a widespread distracted pissing contest, it got the best of them and they dropped the ball, and a lot of innocent people got massacred. Hamas is basically running themselves and plunging Gaza into even more of a ruined urban hellhole than it already was (if that were even possible), as part of some group of rich guys’ evil plan over in Qatar, and now they’ve basically signed death warrants indirectly of thousands of innocent children. There’s bloodlust on both sides of this emotionally charged conflict. A Jew myself, I am greatly bothered and abhorred at the massacre of so many innocents on that dark day in October. At the same time, why subject Gaza to ruin? The real perpetrators of the attack are in Doha, after all. So many young lives lost, tragically, at the behest of a few extremists in Qatar. I’m all in favor of a one state solution featuring a secular state where everyone, Palestinian or Israeli, or Druze, enjoys equal citizenship and rights. I realize it’s much more likely that we’ll see Hawaii in the CFP this year. I can dream though.
