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:
"There's a reason Hillary Clinton has remained relatively silent during the flap over intemperate remarks by Barack Obama's former pastor, Jeremiah Wright. When it comes to unsavory religious affiliations, she's a lot more vulnerable than Obama. You can find all about it in a widely under-read article in the September 2007 issue of Mother Jones, in which Kathryn Joyce and Jeff Sharlet reportedthat "through all of her years in Washington, Clinton has been an active participant in conservative Bible study and prayer circles that are part of a secretive Capitol Hill group known as "The "Fellowship," also known as The Family."
The Family...the most conservative, power focused and fundamentalist Xian Cult there is, and Hillary Clinton has been an "elite member" for 15 years. Interesting, don't you think? Yet, as I said about the Red Herring the Konservative, Korporate and Kapitalist Fox News is trying to create to derail Barack Obama's campaign, I can't help but think that Mother Jones and the Nation is trying the same by publishing this. On the other hand, apparently Hillary Clinton's involvement with the Family has been covered up by someone. Let's not forget that Clinton has been closer than most to the Power, and it's associates within the Konservative, Korporate and Kapitalist Organizations than most - she is also the only woman to get into High Power Politics as a result of her husband having been the President of the US. So there would plenty of "behind the scenes" people to keep her membership of The Family out of the Public Eye.
Given this, Red Herring or not, it is interesting that Clinton's Campaign has not jumped on the bandwagon in the wake of the Wright-Obama disclosure. Also given that Konservative, Korporate and Kapitalist Fox News, which is exactly that; Konservative, Korporate and Kapitalist, it's notable that THEY have not picked up this - after all politically they would be behind John McCain. So something is definitely fishy here. My guess is that despite being a candidate for the Democrats, Hillary is indeed as conservative as can be.
