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:
In a US State Department report dated 1945 it says:
"Controlling the oil-industry and oil sources in the Middle-East is extremely important."
One by one during a period from 1945-1973 the oilproducing countries in the Middle-East have broken free from Western dominance, and said: "Enough's enough, get the hell out of here", so when an opportunity opens a window to gain control over all that richness again, who's there, barging in and 'taking over', using any pretense possible to justify it? The one who lost the most between 1945 and 1973 - The United States of America. Oh, France and Britain lost some too, but no-one lost as much as the US. It must have hurt really bad when all the Americans were deported from Libya, only to be replaced by a less 'hungry' Russians...All that oil, just laying there, in the hands of sub-human savage Muslims - Oy!
I don't think it's a coincidence that the US has NEVER had any peace-keeping troops in the Middle East, or anywhere else for that matter - why could that be? Because the US is not interested in Peace - Peace is bad for business - War is good for business, and the US is built on Big Business - Weapons Business and Oil Business, and the businesses connected to the two big ones.
The Big Business Men never have to send their kids to any US wars - they don't risk anything, they don't pay - they just live off the blood of others, demanding ever more. The last abuse scandal/killing spree in Iraq was perped by soldiers who were on their third tour in Iraq...I am not surprised - it was probably so they would get sent home and not have to 'serve' anymore.
Is it a coincidence that the US, after invading Iraq is now looking lustily and greedily at Iran - using another "They have horrible weapons" excuse so they can go there and grab whatever they want and force the Iranians to subject to the West? There are another 2 years until the next American election - plenty of time to "liberate a people" - despite the fact that the people in question doesn't want to be 'liberated'.
Is it a coincidence that Sudan is getting support from the US, but Rwanda didn't? No - Sudan has lots of OIL! Connect the dots.
George W Bush will go down in history as either the bloodiest President in the History of the US, or we can start calling him "King George III" after the English King who went certifiably Mad and ran around dressed in women's underwear to the amusement and embarrasment of the Court.
George III of England was incidently the very King whom George Washington and the "Founding Fathers" were fighting in the War of Independence (1775?1783).
For some reason I find George in women's underwear much more acceptable than the ransacking of sovereign states for money - don't you?
