Here is a few things you don't know about me.

I am Jewish and no I don't hate the fact I am Jewish. Do I practice my religion? No, I don't practice any religion. I believe in God, I don't believe in religions. I am 75, White and a disabled veteran. Do I believe there will be peace in the Middle East, no, even if there weren't any Jews, there will never be peace in the Middle East. In basic training I was taught to shoot the M-14 and received my expert badge. I never fired or even held a weapon after that. I was in from 63-67 and my records are still flagged. I can tell you that I went to the Defense Language Institute in Monterey CA where I spent one year learning Russian and getting 23 college credits through UC Berkeley. Even my family did not know what training I had after that or where I was stationed overseas. My unit was the Army Security Agency which if you google it you will see what agency we were assigned to. The problem with Israel and the Palestinians is neither side, at this point, is willing to trust the other side and I do not have a clue what can be done to bring that about. To me, the Democrats and Republicans in this country are having a love affair compared to the Middle East. I said I believe in God, unfortunately I do not believe in human kindness. It is nice to have this give and take with someone who is passionate and intelligent. I mean that.

My Son is in Santa Rosa.

He just got his tablet. He didn't lose much music and he likes the tablet since he can email me from his cell. His problem is we paid in November for what he needs. His packages arrived in the middle of November. I keep calling them to find out when he will get his packages. They said that they have search all packages. This just started. The company they were using checked the packages before shipping and the prison never had to search them. Another problem is that we send the latest phone bill to them so he can call our number. Every couple of months their computer kicks it out and we have to start all over again. They used to have a good computer program that let me see everything. Now I can't. I can send him money every month, but I never know how much is in his account. Two more long years to go. I pity any prisoner who does not have someone on the outside willing to help them.

What would make this story better,

is if while he was having his picture taken another hunter saw the goat and took his shot hitting the wrong target or right target depending on your point of view. I live in a rural area of Eastern NC and about half of the people I know hunt deer and bear, both for food. The problem we have is that too many city folk are moving here. They don't hunt, but too many houses are taking too much of the animals land away from them. Problem solved, nor if we could just hunt them.

I think most vets do.

It depends on where you live. Like I wrote, the only problems I have right now are getting an appointment with eyes and dentist. Of course it I really need them right now, I could most likely get them through non-VA. That is the only problems I have had since starting with the VA in 1995.

If the Democrats abstain,

McConnell will say that the vote failed because the Democrats were against it. It wont matter what the Democrats say.

You don't know me or anything about me.

When were you in Turkey and saw how the Kurds lived? When were you in Vietnam and saw how the Hmong were treated? No, I don't know about all groups, that is impossible. You didn't answer about the Irgun. What about the attack on the USS Liberty on June 8, 1967. Yes I bring that up because those murdered men were the same men I trained with. The Israeli government will do anything it must to further their illegal expansionism in The Occupied Palestinian Territories. The Canaanites are no longer in Canaan because they were driven out by the Jews.

Do not forget to feed her before you go to bed.

They do not like to go to bed hungry.

I thought we became Socialists on 08/14/1935

when FDR signed The Social Security Act. We would have all the money we would ever need in the Social Security Fund if everyone who hates socialism refused to collect their Social Security.

The Jewish people are not indigenous to what is now Israel.

The Canaanites or Phoenicians, either name were the first people in the region, they were the indigenous people of the region. The Jewish people came after them while the Phoenicians were still there. The Phoenicians had a very rich history. Ceding land, look at a map of 1948 and one of 2019. The Jews call it a war of genocide, the Muslims call it trying to keep from losing their land. It was the Jews that liked to bomb places like the King David Hotel in 1946, before there was an Israel. Do you believe that the Israelis should keep building settlements on Arab land? Kind of like White people kept building on indigenous peoples' land.
