Re: The Kol Nidre - or Why People Say "Never Trust a Jew"
Thumper, in our hearts we want to believe the best about EVERYONE, but my mind and my research say differently.
There are always exceptions, as in Henry's case, and a few others whose writings I read on a daily basis because they love liberty.
One white crow proves that all crows are not black; BUT, the exceptions do not find their way into government, education and banking. THOSE are the rule. I am thankful that the exceptions do choose to write because they can and do tell great truths; the freedom of speech and thought is quickly being extinguished, except here on the iternet - who knows for how much longer, by those that are the rule (ADL).
My favorite and most prolific writer was Murray Rothbard, a jew, and the most freedom-loving individual you would ever hope to meet. Wonderful man, reminded me of a Bantham Rooster when he really got into his subject while giving a talk . Although small in stature, he was a giant among men.
One night, over coffee, he made a remark that, until today, hurts my heart but opened my eyes as nothing else could have. He said, "I have done my part, I have had no children."
He understood that he was one of the few "white crows."
Rest in peace, Murray. Your work goes on.
I hate it when they say, "He gave his life for his country." Nobody gives their life for anything. We steal the lives of these kids. We take it away from them. They don't die for the honor and glory of their country. We kill them."-- Admiral Gene LaRocque
