I like to get to the point and don't like pretense. I hate BS. You do not want to BS me. I will insult you right to your face.
Interests: I find I think about women's bodies a lot. Other than that I think about history. I wish I were very wealthy so that I could pursue my real interests with greater intensity. It's a good thing I 've been a saver and not a spender. But I wish I were wealthy. That would help. I sometimes have the presentiment that God is going to give me everything I want before its over. I think Almighty God likes me.

Re: RACIST OCCUPY WALL STREETERS SPRAY BLACK COP WITH LIQUID THEN JUMP HIM You are best dear Pamela when you deal on a practical level. That's why I think your new book will sell well. I think it's time to start calling all Leftists and Muslims "racist" right off the bat. A lot of the horror that ordinary people are suffering with in this economy are the result of "activists" pushing for no standards (note comment below) in the issuing of mortgages. "Wall Street" is an abstraction. This crowd would occupy Sesame Street or Wall Street (the "issue" is not the issue). The issue here is much more complex than these bumper-sticker minds are capable of understanding. Comment made on WND "Blognetdaily"... Sesame Street Posted by Frank on Oct 13, 2011 14:49 The Wall Street Protests are Full of Ignorance, Hypocrisy, Anti-Semitism October 11, 2011 http://www.rushlimbaugh.com/daily/2011/10/11/the_ wall_street_protests_are_full_of_ignorance_ hypocrisy_anti_semitism The kind of mind that reduces the economic problems of the US to a simplistic "blame Wall Street" is the same kind of mind that will "blame Jews." "Wall Street" is a vague abstraction that represents many things, including a mortgage market that melted-down under "progressive" pressure to lower lending standards, to provide artificially low interest rates via Fed policy, to make home-ownership available to anyone with a pulse, and to send that crap to Fannie and Freddie until they collapsed and then Wall Street collapsed in the big-bubble. (If Jews run "Wall Street" then Jewish people must be pretty dumb.) The rent a mob in the streets should be looking to the creators of Dodd-Frank. This financial melt-down was centered in Fannie and Freddie and was the direct result of government policy via the "activist" recommended community reinvestment Act (e.g.) and was enabled by the Fed's easy money policy. (Anyone who opposed the rock-and-roll party was promptly labeled a "racist" by Jesse Jackson, Maxine W., Barney, and other hustlers who have destroyed opportunity for the lower income Americans they pretended to care about.) The Left's activists are potentially dangerous, and they could turn on Jewish people as they have turned on "Wall Street." The "activist" Left in America are America's Nazis. They love to use slogans as they spread their ideological trash. (There is an irrational streak in human nature, and it manifests itself in this era in the bumper-sticker "minds" on the American political Left and in jihad (60 years ago it was the Nazis and Communists). Left "activists" and jihadists have much in common and could openly form a kind of modern Nazi-Soviet Pact. The two groups are natural allies. Both are irrational and treat beliefs as if they are facts. Anyone who looks at the hairy-eyeball crowd in both sets, and who watches as their followers respond to their leaders' CAIR style idiotic propaganda slogans had better think. Think.)

St. Nicholas (Nicholas means "holy victory of the people" if memory serves me correctly) was known as a gift giver. In America he became Santa Claus. There is a saying that "Gd writes straight with crooked lines." There is symbolism in this victory. It would take a Carl Jung to read the symbolism. Christian teaching (I know this for certain) in Catholicism is that the Jewish people have a "special covenant" with Gd. I assume that is also true for the Greek Orthodox. Though Christians believe Jesus is the Messiah, it is not the business of the followers of Jesus to convert or oppress Jews (though political interests have attempted to do that in history for their own purposes (Hitler e.g.). The special relationship of Gd and the Jewish people is part of the drama to be worked out by Gd and man in history. This rebuilding of the Church of Saint Nick looks like good symbolism for Jewish people in America, too. This is a symbolic victory with some meaning greater than we can comprehend.

The rent-a-mob in the streets don't care about the oppressed and they don't care about Wall Street either. They are part of an infantile theater of rage that trashes streets and makes ordinary folks clean it up. The real questions and concerns here are rationally addressed by the Tea Party, and only in in a minority of the Left's "activists." The Left's activists are potentially dangerous, and they could turn on Jewish people as they have turned on "Wall Street." The "activist" Left in America are America's Nazis. They love to use slogans as they spread their ideological trash.
Never have so few been blamed for so much by so many By Spengler "Here's your final exam question in Middle Eastern studies: A mass of Coptic Christians marches through Cairo to protest the military government's failure to protect them from Muslim radicals. They are attacked by stone-throwing, club-wielding rowdies. Armed forces security personnel intervene, and the Copts fight it out with the soldiers, with two dozen dead and scores injured on both sides. Who is to blame?"-Spengler http://www.atimes.com/atimes/Middle_East/MJ12Ak02.html The "blame the Jews" theater is likely to become a modern Left-Islamic replay of the Hitler-Stalin Pact. (BTW-it will not play well in the USA.) The totalitarians are on the march to nowhere again. Turkey, Syria, Egypt etc. are all failing states and Egypt is going to face bankruptcy and famine because it is a society where 50% of its people are illiterate and 90% of the women are clit-snipped (fertile ground for the Muslim Brotherhood). The Left has a perfect ally. Who's to blame?
Most of these people are infantile or on the verge of Alzheimer's. They have bumper-sticker "minds." We see nothing but slogans and the farting of platitudes about equality, concerns for the poor etc., but if their real concerns were only about the oppressed then all the oppressed would be dead. What they rage about is not what they care about. At best it's bad theater-not a tragedy, but a farce.
Final word on this: Teddy Roosevelt used the anti-trust laws to break-up Big Finance and the concentration of industry (what we today call "crony capitalism") to restore a free market whenever such concentrations threatened individual enterprise (starting a bank e.g.) and when such concentration therefore threatened political liberty. He especially thought it was necessary to break-up Big Finance. (TR saw some industry concentrations as in the public interest. For example: food and drugs. He thought it was better for the public that those industries be concentrated for the sake of public health and safety, but the price for their guaranteed profits, and not much competition, was that they must be heavily regulated: hence the FDA. He definitely did not look at Big Finance that way.) TR particularly saw JP Morgan's financial control in the US as a threat to democracy, as well as a threat to the free market. We are faced with very similar circumstances today in the concentration of Big Finance in America. It is only a matter of time before the public will demand that the anti-trust laws be dusted off in this matter. It will not be the "activist" stooges that will bring about reform. It's very likely to come from the US Right-as it did 100 years ago.
Both Lenin and Stalin had contempt for the burgeois "progressive" type. Lenin called them "useful idiots." Most of the people in the street are "useful idiots." Maybe they should occupy Sesame Street. What we need in the USA is another Teddy Roosevelt to break-up the big banks and restore free market capitalism to our financial system. What we have now is really a fascist (corporate-state alliance) in this. Obama is essentially a flunky (a regular Dodd-Frank guy) who has institutionalized "too big to fail." If this guy were Bush the "useful idiots" would not be directing their "outrage" at Wall Street. The mainstream political Right in the USA (unlike the Right in Europe and elsewhere) is very anti-authoritarian, and they have a healthy skepticism of the apparent government, and that other goverment (as represented by Jamie Diamon etc). They will bring real reform within a few years and ellect another TR president.
It's the only religion, as far as I see, where one does not have to twist the dogmas to act like a Nazi. I guess that's why Hitler said Islam was perfect for Nazi objectives. They (the Nazis) tried to use Jesus' teachings for so-called "positive Christianity: but that was like taking the ten commandments and turning them on their heads. "Thou shalt not murder" becomes "thou shalt murder" with "positive" Ten Commandments?) In any case, there is no problem with Islam being positive in such matters where Unbelievers and especially Jewish people are involved.
Swift might write: "The Blefuscu terrorists had murder in their eyes based on their Big-End doctrine,” Goldman said. "All the world must submit, but especially Lilliputians, to the AlKoran's command that eggs must be broken at the big end. Otherwise, those who disbelieve in Gd's command to break eggs at the big-end must be killed or made to feel subdued. They have murder in their eyes because they are Big-Enders."-Goldman added It's a wonder Swift is not censored today for his hilarious insights of 300+ years ago re such dogmas, and of those who benefit from them.
Re: JEWISH WOMAN IN LABOR SURVIVES MUSLIM LYNCH ATTEMPT In Gulliver's Travels Swift describes the war between Lilliput and Blefuscu. Blefuscu launches a holy war against Lilliput based on the AlKoran's doctrine of "the big-ending' which has Gd commanding, as per the AlKoran, that all the world must break their eggs at the big end. If memory serves me, because the Lilliputians (and especially them) break their eggs at the small end, or even in the middle, the cleric-political-elite in Bliefuscu whip-up frenzy, rationalize a war of conquest, exploitation etc. against the Lilliputians. (Gulliver eventually disarms the jihadists of Blefuscu.) The Islamic dogmas re the Jewish people in the Qu'ran are going to prove to be Islam's Big-Ending Doctrine.
"Here, yet again, is another glaring example of what I call in my book, Stop the Islamization of America: A Practical Guide to the Resistance, the mosqueing of the workplace: the imposing of Islamic law on the secular marketplace. No big media outlet will talk about the bigger picture, but one only needs to look at Europe to see the bleak future if this supremacism goes unchallenged."-Pamela Absolutely. The game here is Muslim supremacists (CAIR-American Bund etc.)using "useful idiots" (Muslim and non-Muslim) for power. They use the costumes, hats, face-coverings, and rituals (why are human beings so impressed by this shit?)of "religion" to intimidate and demand special privileges in a secular environment. It would take a Jung or Freud to tell us why we take this nonsense seriously. I think the Islamic "true-believer" puppeteers (and this is why the Left is so enabling of this crap) desire to impose a totalitarian system on others (they even clit-snip in Egypt to control women.) This desire (based on some belief or other) is deeply rooted in some people, and their insecurity manifests itself in behaviors that aim at controlling others' political speech (ideas and opinions), behavior-ultimately others' minds. The numbers of people advocating this crap doesn't matter. We must keep in mind that Lenin and Hitler never had the willing support of a majority. It is always a small cadre of ideologists that can and sometimes do impose their will on the masses. Finally, they rule by fear. They are about selflessness disguised as disinterested principal. A few people are not blind to the danger (Pamela e.g.) of a small committed (the left and Nazis love that word)cadre that can and will impose their ideology if their "supremacism goes unchallenged."
Islam has to be understood in the context of its actual dogmas. The numbers of the core Islamic propagandists and Sharia peddlers (CAIR, Muslim Brotherhood e.g.) are irrelevant. As with most supremacist ideologies, core adherents, the masters of the game, are really about power and domination. That is true of all such "movements" whether they wear the mantle of religion or otherwise. Look how Goebbles in 1930 (when the Nazis were a few clowns dressed in costumes and funny hats) used a bum like Horst Wessel to play the victim card....... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DYIU09o1gsI
"The very word “Islamophobia” is a fictional construct, as journalist Claire Berlinski explains, “The neologism ‘Islamophobia’ did not simply emerge ex nihilo. It was invented, deliberately, by a Muslim Brotherhood front organization, the International Institute for Islamic Thought, which is based in Northern Virginia….Abdur-Rahman Muhammad, a former member of the IIIT who has renounced the group in disgust, was an eyewitness to the creation of the word. ‘This loathsome term,’ he writes, ‘is nothing more than a thought-terminating cliche conceived in the bowels of Muslim think tanks for the purpose of beating down critics.’”-Pamela Absolutely. The people who invented this term have to be well aware of Goebbels' theories of propaganda. One important aspect of effective propaganda, as per Goebbels, is to position a "movement" and its adherents as victims. Goebbels would often take people killed in brawls, attackers of Jews and others, and make them into martyrs for the Nazi cause (Horst Wessel (e.g.)was not an isolated example of how effective this nonsense can be in shaping public perception). What folks such as the Southern Poverty Pimps organization (themselves a small group of ideologists) and others know, or are ignorant of, is that it is quite possible for a small group motivated by "religious" or political ideology to take power in the state. That was especially true in the 20th century with Lenin and Hitler's groups. They did it via a constant drumbeat of propaganda that cried "victim" as they aggressively embarked upon a quest for total power in the state. The issue with Islam is not numbers, but the ideology itself. Any attempts to limit free-political speech (the open expression of ideas and options re Islam etc.) must be taken seriously even if the attempt to do that is launched by a numerically small group in a "movement." There has to be zero-tolerance of anyone or any group that attempts to curtail free political speech (ideas and opinions). ("Islamaphobia" me arse. The word is propaganda.)
I need to observe Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) since I have lost all faith in human nature-LOL. Muslim jihadists, for me, are just more Yahoo (I'm thinking of Swift's Gulliver's Travels). I think Pamela has less to atone for in that view.

"The pathetic and dangerous attempt at revolution by the occupy Wall Street welfare statists "assume all the advantages of capitalism are here to stay and then undermine everything that makes capitalism possible in order to redistribute the wealth. Welfare statist want the power to hold a gun over everyone head, and they want to retain those milk cows -- the capitalist producers." (Ayn Rand) I'm not a fan of Ayn Rand. My mother had to take welfare for a guy like me (who was a kid) to live. Ayn Rand would have guys like me exterminated. She engages in the same cartoon world as these bourgeois creeps protesting on Wall Street. The protest creeps don't seem to quite understand (most tare not very bright) that what we have now under the current Administration is fascism (a corporate-state alliance) and that we need to return to free-market capitalism by breaking up Big-Finance first and foremost. These morons dare not admit the truth that Obama was Wall Street's candidate in 2008. The guy who promised that he would only take public financing in the campaign quickly (and very cynically) abandoned that pledge once he got the nomination. The nightmare that's coming for the "Progressive" clowns (so-called protesters of Wall Street) is probably going to come from the GOP with the election a a free-market capitalist (similar to TR). A Romney-Cain ticket might be the best medicine for the bourgeois clowns who bought the "changfe you can believe in" propaganda in 2008. They are, as Len said, "useful idiots." http://articles.cnn.com/2008-10-28/politics/campbell.brown.obama_1_barack-obama-obama-supporter-public-financing?_s=PM:POLITICS
They (the apologists for Islam) are "useful idiots." As I noted in a recent comment on Atlas: The people who buy this nonsense are what Lenin called "useful idiots." It is astonishing how many people bought this kind of propaganda during the Soviet era, and apologists for the Soviet system would gush praise to the West re the full employment economy, the free health care, the intellectual freedoms, the material well being of USSR citizens, and even their rights to express free political speech (ideas and opinions) in the USSR. Meanwhile, the truth was very different from the propaganda. The Soviets would pitch people (who were told what to say) at very intelligent, well educated Westerners, who should have known better. The writer Dorris Lessing, looking back on how she was fooled, cannot now understand why she was so easily fooled by the show: "Asked if she (writer Doris Lessing) considered that at that time in her life she was one of the people Vladimir Lenin would have called a useful idiot, she replied: "Yes, I would. Thats what my role was. I was taken around and shown things as a useful idiot. I cant understand why I was so gullible." http://www.thezimbabwean.co.uk/news/33473/doris-lessing-a-useful-and-youthful-idiot.html

"Pamela Geller, founder of the Atlas Shrugs blog, called the series, part of the “ongoing onslaught of cultural jihad,” and created a counter-comic strip that made the 19 hijackers behind the September 11, 2001 attacks the superheroes."-from the article My sister has kids in the NYC schools. The Muslim girls come to school dressed in the burkas, the tent coverings, but quickly go into the bathrooms and come out in jeans. (I had lunch with her in Jamaica, (me home turf) about 2 weeks ago, and she told me that.) The handwriting is on the wall re Islamic supremacy in America. The issue will be what will the Muslim supremacists do to seek to enforce Sharia when they know this is happening? My sister said: "how are they going to stop their kids from marring a Puerto Rican guy, a Mc, or a Jewish guy? They are already revolting against this. This is America." She's right.

"It's the end of a great American era in more ways than one."-Pamela I agree with you re Jobs. I feel the loss, too. However, his end is not America's end. The creativity, the individualism (with the caveat knowledge that we are after all very interdependent re our food, clothing and other needs-individualism is not realistically unlimited) is not dead in America. In fact, you (Pamela) are evidence of that. I still think, agreeing with President Reagan, that the best days are ahead for America. We have not even begun to play our ultimate role in the world re individual human rights. We are going to prevail in that by example. I'm not pessimistic re the future of the USA, and I could logically argue my case in that, but I like to be brief in my comments. Our best days are ahead.

I love how these "useful idiots" cleverly imply that if you agree with them then you are "clear-thinking" as they create their straw-man ("utterly insane theory that an entire religion is conspiring to take over the Western world"-Steinbeck). This article and Steinbeck are full of shit. You start with your cone contusion-don't you Steinbeck?
"Most clear-thinking Americans can tell the difference between the real but limited threat posed by Islamic terrorists and the utterly insane theory that an entire religion is conspiring to take over the Western world. But then, Geller has a hard time separating facts from imagination."- Robert Stein Pamela has made no such assertion ("conspiring to take over the Western world"). You are dishonest, or not very bright, in your straw-man tactics, Steinbeck. What Pamela is saying is that free political speech and our liberties in america will be guaranteed in the future, in the long term, if folks understand that it is an obligation of Muslims to impose Sharia in a non-Muslim society. (That is the obligation of Muslims. Period. This (real Islamic doctrine) ain't the Sermon on the Mount, Steinbeck.) Pamela is doing her best to educate the public here in the good ol USA re that. To repeat: Pamela has not asserted that there is a conspiracy in this matter-but that there is a long-term threat to free political speech if the public is not educated real the reel dogmas of Islam. She also asserts as a second theme on this site, Mr. Clear-thinker: that Islam, as presently configured, with its institutionalized Jew-hating, is a potential existential threat to the Jewish people. (I think she's right on that too, Mr. Clear-thinker.) The fact that Muslims who are terrorists are minority within Islam does not mean that Islam is not a threat. The ideology itself is the basis of the terrorists actions against Unbelievers. The Nazis were a minority Germany. The ideology (Islam) is the issue. You carefully avoid that issue, Mr. clear-thinker. Pamela is dealing with the facts in this matter in her two themes. On the other hand, Lenin had the right phrase for you, Steinbeck: "useful idiot."
Bolton: I can understand how you might be repulsed by the rat race in terms of presidential politics. It is a rat race and it is repulsive. However, sometimes it is a duty to enter the rat race. Let Newt Gingrich become Sec. of State and you can appoint him to that as president. At least then we'll have a treacherous State Dept and the Jihadists will have met their match in terms of two-faced duplicity. You underestimate yourself, Bolton.
"Despite the president's refusal (so far) to acknowledge explicitly that he gave the order to kill Awlaki, there is no doubt, whether through a signed intelligence "finding", classified executive order, or extensive briefings about the US target list, the ultimate command responsibility was Obama's. He should be proud of his decision."-Bolton Agree. If Bush had ordered this all the Left's "useful idiots" would be going bonkers. (BTW-the same is true re the economy.) The president is doing the right thing. The "American citizen" crap is a red herring. During WW2 there were many first generation German-Americans who went over to the Nazis and fought for Germany against America and Americans. They were treated as enemy combatants even though they kept their American citizenship. Some of them even posed as GIs during the Battle of the Bulge (12/15/1944-1/15/1945) and caused a lot of chaos for Americans in that battle. Anwar al-Awlaki had joined what amounts to Islam's SS. He was far more dangerous than many of the so-called "American citizens" who were caught and executed during the Battle of the Bulge. This crap about his "American citizenship" is utter nonsense. (The vast majority of the first-generation German-Americans in the WW2 era fought bravely for the US. In fact, the movie Saving Private Ryan is based on the Niland brothers, and they were first generation German-Americans.) German Americans of second and third generation(Eisenhower e.g.) were as American as the Bill of Righrts. But there were some scumbags. They were egged on by the German-American Bund (the CAIR of that era).
"Before I addressed the crowd, I was shocked and overcome when the United States Marine Corps presented me with the flag flown on September 11th over Camp Leatherneck, "amid the battlefields of Afghanistan during decisive operations against enemy forces in Helmand Province." Can you imagine such an honor?"-Pamela Yes I can. You (Pamela) represent the defense of our first amendment rights to free political speech, what has often been called the right to "the free, open expression of ideas and opinions." This is the cornerstone of all our other political freedoms. Islam with its mandates to impose Sharia Law is (as you warn the complacent) a long term threat to free political speech-unless folks challenge "tolerance"-PC and the Islamic dogma mandates to impose Sharia on Unbelievers. Ultimately, I don't think the Jihadists will win. They have no geopolitical base (unlike the USSR e.g.)-though they pipe-dream re a Caliphate. Islam is far more fragmented and torn by ethnic and religious strife than the West. However, the Jihadists cannot be underestimated. Lenin had no geopolitical base either. He only had "useful idiots"-and that's all he had. But we have Pamela. We will be safe.

You bet. Even as a fantasy, the NC gov's thoughts should be treated seriously. Many of these folks do have a "love of totalitarianism." I think it's a psychiatric issue and is not really about politics. Their politics is a symptom of some need to control other people and they use some political or "religious" rationalization system to facilitate that.
