11. Paul Craig Roberts and me.  Mr. Roberts recently lamented in his OEN article  about the 'left' being  unfair towards his hero Reagan. I  tried to point out in my comment that he should be more concerned not about  who hates   Reagan but who  expresses  slimy love towards  him, namely ALL  GOP- kind of people,  the ones  PCR rightfully despises.  Mr. Roberts instead of  taking that advice answered that my approach proved his  perceptions about the 'left'.  For a moment I felt like  I got an answer from some parallel universe.  Then I thought that PCR exhibited a perfect American feature about which a fairy- tale character from my childhood  sung a song , ' You flatter the sucker and then you don't need a knife to rob him- he will give everything to you  on his own...'

12. Pinhaas and me.

Russian- speaking newspaper  Forum publishes the Interpretation of Torah pages where the  great  rabbis - experts explain to  the seemingly clueless Russian immigrants the essence of the Book of Books. This time  there was an interpretation of the episode when during the Exodus an obviously unstable  man named Pinhaas got envious that one of the group leaders ( I think the name was Zamir)  courted a woman from some tribe and had sex with her. The envious bastard drew a spear and ' protruded both a man and a woman while in the act'. Mind you, he did not  challenge the  man; he killed him from behind. That act  drew reasonable disgust even among  the exodus Jews who made observations about such idiocy and crulety running in his family.  Whoa! According to the  current, 21st- Century  interpretation, that Pinhaas was a ' warrior for peace', he  'should be supported' because he averted the  anger of Almighty.

Two things came to my head after I puked  when I read that crap:

a) Is it possible that President Obama  drew his wisdom  about ' peace through war'  from these kinds of interpretations?

b) We apparently  live in times when the  people who claim to be moral authorities  and interpreters of the Higher wisdom are in fact disgusting, cynical  and ignorant nonbelievers. And that is not atheism even - that's savagery.

Now I rest my case.
