    I love women. I don’t like whatever Coulter is.

    I hope she didn’t take it personally. The Coutergeist would react equally coldly to being asked to endure a display of emotion or empathy involving any human.

    I got no problem with Mexicans. I can get delicious authentic tacos three blocks from my house, and somebody to help drywall a room for just a hundred bucks. What did Ann Coulter ever do for me? Nothing!

    Silly, Monk, none of this is illegal. Rich people’s shady accounting practices are never actually illegal. Where in this whole story do you imagine that you see some suggestion that any of this might be illegal?

    She doesn’t have to have a reason. In America you’re allowed to wear whatever you want.

    “To have been a Marine and to tell us we’re a threat…that’s actually a compliment,” said Rawls. “But telling me I’m a threat to others was extremely offensive.”

    So it’s a compliment, but only if they tell him that he’s only a threat to himself. They were right to suspend him, but they did it for the wrong reasons. He shouldn’t be in college until he has better command of logic and the English language.

    Maoz Tzur (literal translation) continued

    To sever the towering cypress
    sought the Aggagite, son of Hammedatha,
    But it became [a snare and] a stumbling block to him
    and his arrogance was stilled.
    The head of the Benjaminite You lifted
    and the enemy, his name You obliterated
    His numerous progeny – his possessions -
    on the gallows You hanged.

    Greeks gathered against me
    then in Hasmonean days.
    They breached the walls of my towers
    and they defiled all the oils;
    And from the one remnant of the flasks
    a miracle was wrought for the roses.
    Men of insight – eight days
    established for song and jubilation

    Rock of Ages (Maoz Tzur) Popular English Version

    Rock of ages, let our song
    Praise your saving power
    You amid the raging foes
    Were our sheltering tower
    Furious they assailed us
    But your arm availed us
    And your word
    Broke their sword
    When our own strength failed us

    Children of the wanderers
    Whether free or fettered
    Wake the echoes of the songs
    Where you may be scattered

    Yours the message cheering
    That the time is nearing
    Which will see all men free
    Tyrants disappearing

    Maoz Tzur (literal translation)

    O mighty stronghold of my salvation,
    to praise You is a delight.
    Restore my House of Prayer
    and there we will bring a thanksgiving offering.
    When You will have prepared the slaughter
    for the blaspheming foe,
    Then I shall complete with a song of hymn
    the dedication of the Altar.

    My soul had been sated with troubles,
    my strength has been consumed with grief.
    They had embittered my life with hardship,
    with the calf-like kingdom’s bondage.
    But with His great power
    He brought forth the treasured ones,
    Pharaoh’s army and all his offspring
    Went down like a stone into the deep.

    To the holy abode of His Word He brought me.
    But there, too, I had no rest
    And an oppressor came and exiled me.
    For I had served aliens,
    And had drunk benumbing wine.
    Scarcely had I departed
    At Babylon’s end Zerubabel came.
    At the end of seventy years I was saved.

    I got the right answer watching at home, but of course I wasn’t there standing under the bright lights with all that money at stake. If you absolutely can’t dredge up the right answer, I always admire somebody who goes for a laugh instead of just leaving it blank.

    What other proof? You never offered any. You claim that the existence of God is proven by the success of Jewish fortune tellers. You offer exactly one example, and you can’t find any proof that a prediction was actually made while the event was still in the future. You’re the one claiming something fantastic and unbelievable, so you have the burden of proof. My only claim is that there is no proof of the existence of God or that He has ever spoken to humans. Prove me wrong.

  • [-1] May 26, 2015 at 5:10am

    So, you just found out that there is no proof that this alleged prediction was actually made before the event, and you expect me to believe that your failure to find any such evidence has to be because those evil liberals at Google (and, I assume, the evil liberals at Yahoo, and Bing, and DuckDuckGo, etc.) have conspired to hide it from you. Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, you superstitious chump. Nobody has ever predicted the future based on a code in an old book. It didn’t happen. It couldn’t happen, and only a fool would ever believe that it could have happened.

  • [-1] May 26, 2015 at 3:54am

    And was this alleged prediction actually published before the assassination? I looked but I can find no record of that, you will have to provide a citation if you expect anybody to believe that. I did learn that some crackpot published a book about ostensible Torah Codes after the Rabin assassination, in which he claimed to have decoded such a prediction, but the same guy also claimed to have found predictions of an atomic holocaust in 1996 and a world war in 2000. Unsurprisingly his predictions that he announced before they were supposed to happen didn’t pan out as accurately as his predictions that he claimed to have made of things that had already happened. It has since been proven that if you keep looking for codes in any sufficiently long text, you will eventually find seemingly meaningful messages. Cryptologists seeking to prove how stupid this delusion of magical Torah codes really is have successfully found predictions of everything from the assassination of Trotsky to the death of Princess Diana in the text of Moby Dick. So, no, that is all a bunch of horse manure and doesn’t prove a damn thing.

    If the pencil does move, but it points at no, what does that mean?

    Speaking of morons, who the hell said anything about Tzipi Livni, moron?

  • [-1] May 26, 2015 at 2:10am

    I have no evidence, just as you have no evidence that there is any such thing as God or that He has ever spoken to humans. Lies and wishful thinking are a completely plausible alternate explanation of the history of religions and their followers. Vague non-time-specific prophecies prove absolutely nothing, since things happen all the time, and everything is bound to happen somewhere, eventually.

    Well, yeah, people do come to Ireland from other countries, but those happy throngs of people I see celebrating this victory for human decency and common sense, they all look pretty Irish to me.

  • [2] May 25, 2015 at 8:58pm

    Makingout, you originally made the ridiculous contention that Spanish law does not allow the marriage of a Spanish citizen to another Spanish citizen of the same sex. That is entirely untrue, and none of what you just quoted in any way supports such an absurd misreading of the law.

    Okay, genius, what do you think the Ninth Amendment means? What is this mysterious meaning that it has assumed in your mind that has nothing to do with what it says? No, never mind, I don’t care because you don’t have to agree with me, only the Supreme Court has to. Once that happens you can spend the rest of your days babbling to the walls about how they got it wrong and what the Constitution really means.

    That’s why they call her Tzipi the Pinhead.

    The only land grant given by God? That’s not true. God spoke to me last night and told me that I was the rightful owner of all the land west of the Rockies. From the Mexican border to the Arctic Circle, and I have just as much proof of that as the Israelis do that God ever granted them so much as an acre.
