Re: For the Sistas of AA.org

During the first couple of years of our marriage money was very scarce. I was in grad school and driving a cab in New York. My wife was in school and working in a day care center. We would meet up for dinner and well you know. One night I came home and the lights were off, candles lit, dinner on the floor. Wifey said she wanted a romantic dinner, no TV, no radio just our own sounds. Found out years later the electricity was cut off and she didn't want me to worry. My mother is the proudest...

No, but then again I'm an atheist and I view the Bible (Old Testament and New Testament) as the folklore and rhetoric of Bronze Age tribesmen in the Middle East. While I think it's a valuable piece of literature, I don't hold it in any higher esteem or moral value than I do the Vedas or the Scandinavian sagas. No! Of course, my answer to this would be no, but then my answer for this question wouldn't matter b/c I don't accept the premise that the Jewish/Christian god exists. Even working on...

1) The "jews" there now are NOT the "jews" refered to in the Bible. 2)Like everyone else, I agree...they left and gave up any and all claims to that land. 3) They did unto the Palestiaians what was done unto them by Nazi Germany. So they also gave up any moral and ethical rights in the dispute. 4)No one seems to ask "If God really meant for them to have that land, why do they have to fight, lie, and cheat to keep it?"

I think that this is minor component of the Zionist argument, at least as originally concieved. Many, perhaps most Zionist are secularists. Further, many ultra Orthodox Jews, though extremely religious, have been staunchly anti-Zionist. The real impetus for Zionism was WWII and the Holocaust and the feeling that the Jews needed a safe haven from future persecution. Palestine was one option, but there where many, including areas in South America. This mess is of recent vintage, the creation...

Toussaint. What you fail to consider is that everything is relative. Lets say that an area has a million residents and normative levels of population growth.

The net effect of that is that the economic health of the region is deteriorating, despite not losing any jobs, but because they are not gaining any jobs. This is why despite job growth under the Bush administration, his tenure is considered a poor performance...
