Liberty is not a means to a political end. It is itself the highest political end.
- Lord Acton

The ideal Government of all reflective men, from Aristotle onward, is one which lets the individual alone Ė one which barely escapes being no government at all.
- H.L. Mencken

Maternally, or Paternally, Or Mom's dad or Dad's Mom, In Judaism, If your mother was Jewish You are Jewish, If not, you're not.

Correct - which means that under Jewish law I am not Jewish. although the National Socialists would have insisted that I am.

It gets more confusing - as my mother was thought to be Jewish (because she "looked Jewish" whatever that means - actually she was a of Irish decent) and my father was never thought to be Jewish (and was).

As for defence contractors - they are in for a hard time.....

Defence spending is on course to be the about 3% of GDP by the elections in 2016.

At 3.1% it does not matter which side. I am not Jewish.

We assume my mom's side. Assume. We do not know for sure.

Sue Me
By Robert Lynn

I am going to be rich.

You see, people and companies are committing unconscionable acts, and they are going to pay dearly for them.

For instance, last week I was performing basic ballet moves on the top step of a ladder, and I fell. How could a company manufacture a hazardous product like this and not properly inform the consumer of the risks involved in dancing on it? Oh, sure, the ladder is covered with warning labels, and any idiot should know how to safely use a ladder, but they didnít tell me not to do a pirouette on it. They must take responsibility for that. Iím suing for three million dollars.

As a kid, I never sued anybody. I can see, now, the error of my ways. In my neighborhood, when some kid did something stupid, other kids would taunt him. ďSuffer the consequences,Ē they would say. And suffer they did. That was even more stupid, because, as an adult, I have learned that nothing is my fault. Recognizing this fact is going to make me millions.

Two weeks ago, I saw a movie in which a stupid person lay down on a busy roadway and tried to avoid getting hit by traffic. Now, I have always thought that the best way to avoid getting flattened by traffic was to stay out of it completely. But what do I know? The messages the media are sending me are so overwhelming, I just have to try stuff like this. Unfortunately, I was hit by a car. Iím all right now, but that movie company is going to pay. Add two million to my total.

I like to play my stereo at volume levels just below the threshold of pain. My next-door neighbor has never complained once. Now I have partial hearing loss. Are people so callous these days that they only think of themselves? Not if I can help it. Iím suing my neighbor for not telling me to turn my stereo down, to the tune of one million dollars.

It seems that wherever you go these days, people and companies are so self-absorbed that they donít give an ounce of consideration to how their actions, or inaction, is going to affect innocent people like me. If you listened to some of them, youíd think that Iím somehow supposed to figure out on my own that I shouldnít lick the lids of cans I just opened, or that plugged-in toaster ovens are not bath toys, or that drain cleaner shouldnít be used as eye wash.

I saw a cartoon in which a character used a hairspray can as a blowtorch. I tried it and burned my house down. Eight million.

I put my face on an escalator stair as it reached the top, and it sheared off my lower lip. Sixteen million.

I played a heavy-metal album backwards. It sounded better that way, but I clearly heard irresistible messages about assisting my parakeetís suicide. One million.

There was no warning on my cheese grater saying, ďNot to be used as a loofah body sponge.Ē Six million.

I saw a riot and was forced to start beating people and looting because of the overwhelming mob mentality that swept through the streets. I didnít have a choice. What was I supposed to do, stay home? Somebody ought to be responsible for that. Twenty-two million.

I went to one of those Cartoon Characters on Ice shows and sneaked backstage, where I saw my favorite cartoon pig removing his head. I had a nervous breakdown, and I still have nightmares about a headless swine asking to borrow my deodorant (donít ask me to explain it). Thirty million.

I broke into my neighborís house to steal his Dukes of Hazzard action figure collection set, and he shot me. I think thatís a little severe. I mean, it was a terrible show. Heíll be hearing from my lawyer. Thirteen million.

My older brother jumped off a cliff, so I did too. Twenty-seven million.

I have a few other suits in the works. It seems like just about every day I do something that some company or person should have warned me not to do. When will they learn? When will people start taking responsibility for my actions before itís too late?

After all my lawsuits are settled, when I have more money than I know what to do with, Iíll focus my full attention on one last case. Iíll sue the United States judicial system for refusing to recognize my free will and denying my right to do stupid things and suffer the consequences.

Actually sib at 3.1% If your assumptions are right, and it's your mother mother that was Jewish and her mother, and so on, You are Jewish.

No. I was raised Christian Orthodox, as was everyone else, and then I learned enough to stop believing.

He did not mention any specific case. He's not whining. He's making a very important point about our litigious society.
