I am a big, warm, kind but ferocious Bear (not a teddy bear). An equalist. Danish, well spoken, loyal, caring, history buff, spiritual, ACDF, socially anxious, musical, artistic, dog owner, married, and Jewish.
What am I about?
My life is dedicated to Tikkun Olam - Mending The World - if need be one being at a time. I don't have time for stupidity, I have no patience with arrogance, false humility, hypocrisy or intellectual dishonesty. If I think you are either of the above, I will call you on it. I will say that the Emperor is naked, even if the whole world says he is dressed and even if it hurts the Emperor's feelings.
I am very passionate about Human Rights, Children's Rights and Equal Rights, and chances are that if you are not, I am going to be up your rear with a chainsaw.
I believe that G-d, the Creator of all there is, meant us to be His hands, eyes and voice to each other in Life. That is the task we have been charged with, and that is what we are here to do. It doesn't matter to me what path you choose to do this on, as long as that is what you are doing.
In addition to being a Bear, I am also an Ogre - like Shrek - and like all Ogres I am bound to respond forcefully to kicks in the groin, burnings of my house, beating of my kids and friends. I am also VERY grumpy in the morning. I am true to myself, not to you or to social conventions. I have been through and seen so much bull crap and horse manure in my life, that I'll bet my last dime that I recognize both when they come across my path. If you poop on my floor, I will ask you to scoop it up and put it in the trash. If you do, that's the last you will hear about it, if you don't, if you don't, I'll come after to you till you do or one of us die, which ever comes first.
Here are all the blogs that I am allowed to link to on Care2:
I shudder when I think of the most embarrassing thing I could do. Just tripping in front of a group of people is humiliating. Lauren Caitlin Upton, Miss Teen South Carolina, ?tripped? (so to speak) in front of the world - over and over and over again on YouTube. Humiliation with a capital ?H?. This [...]
Reform Judaism accepts anyone as Jewish if they have one Jewish parent AND has been raised Jewish, with a clear connection to Judaism - now if Halacha and the Law of Return has some sense they would pick up the logic of Reform Judaism on this and implement it ASAP.
What man in his right mind would want a woman who looks like a child, hairless - smells like a child, no body odor - and tries to be child-like, let's him be in control of her, as a result of that? Yeah - Pedophiles.
From an earlier post:
They [the radical left] like to make comparisons to South Africa and the Apartheid Regime. I was part of the movement against Apartheid - and let me tell you, not once did I hear anyone call for the obliteration of the white population of South Africa or a call to eradicate South [...]
These are two separate quotes from different people
"Criticism of Israel is not antisemitic. Of course it isn?t. Millions of people have been saying that time after time after time, but some antisemites just won?t get it. But if you criticize Israel because it?s Jewish, then it?s antisemitic."
?I never separated the Zionists and the Jews in this thread or anywhere.? (this is an actual quote from a man who vehemently claims that he is not an antisemite.) ?Agreed, I did interchange Israel and Jews incorrectly sometimes, but you have to admit that Jews and Israel are most often interchangeable.? (this another actual quote from the same man.)
I saw a woman in Dr. Phil - about elder women and younger men. She used to have a toy boy (yes, she called him that!) until she was in hospital for operation and he didn?t show up? He was ?lovely? as long as he looked good and entertained her in bed, but not [...]
?Examples of memes are tunes, ideas, catch-phrases, clothes fashions, ways of making pots or of building arches. ?
?Memes can include scientific theories, religious doctrine, tips on fashion and racial attitudes.?
So - I caught this thing called ?habit meme? from a Finnish blog. It exists in other blogs as well, in English it?s more ?The Quirky [...]
