I lived with a Jewish woman for three years. My last girlfriend is Jewish, her issues have problems, but it's got nothing to do with being Jewish, she's a psycho.
I worked for a retired Jewish Federal Judge last year, couldn't ask for a more down to earth customer.
Here's something I wrote to a fellow coal club member, who has an interest in human behavior:
Just like a caveman grunting and waving a club over his head, I tend to react to opinions here that threaten me. I hope I can prefer to transcend my own reactions if possible, and gain some understanding of my own behavior, why I react angrily to someone else's viewpoint. Maybe I can contribute in some infinitesmal way to the maturation of the human race.
I checked out some history of Boonton, NJ, where I lived and went to high school. Going back to the late 1800's, the iron industry waned and the silk industry came along to take its place. So I guess our great USA has gone through a lot of ups and downs and made it through them all. There's so much information instantly available with the internet now. I can get downright paranoid. The NWO, Progressivism, nationalism, zenophobia, socialism, communism, Chavez, Iran, North Korea, China, Obama, Cheney, health care, the deficit, islam, overpopulation, AGW; my head is going to explode.
I heard this country is a great experiment in tolerance. I hope to be more tolerant, for the sake of my country and my blood pressure.
OK, I let the coal fire go out this morning due to laziness, better attend to it.....
