X 1000Agreed, I keep marveling at the terrible consequences of being completely ignorant of History. Learning history is not just a fascinating hobby but an inoculation against all kinds of evil. And the level of ignorance is truly appalling.
For many years Evangelical Christians have seemed off putting to me, with their Prosperity Theology (God will make you rich.) But now that they have ripped off their masks and I see the naked contempt, hypocrisy, and corruption beneath, I am horrified.
True, but Broward is where all the white people fled to when Miami was overrun with brown people. Don't you remember the bumper stickers that said "Would the last American out of Miami turn out the lights" and such? Broward is already ground zero for that shit. Though Jacksonville would work too.too close to miami.... they stand a better chance further north...Port. St luice is actually quite nice..
or maybe around the Lake Placid area...
I don't remember excatly. i thought it was a the state approval of a spanish licence plate that triggered people...True, but Broward is where all the white people fled to when Miami was overrun with brown people.

Miami was never as popular with Cubans until they had to flee Fidel. Key West and Tampa probably had larger populations - by percentage than Miami did in 1960 when the population of (Miami) Dade County was 80% non-Hispanic white. Ten years later, less than 50% of the county was non-Hispanic white, while the rest had fled north (mostly), as Cris noted, to Broward County.Hasn''t Miami pretty much always been overrun with brown people? It's had a huge Cuban population for as far back as I can remember. What changed?
I'm just semi-quoting Cris with the overrun thing.
Perhaps a Jewish state wouldn't be necessary in a world where Jews weren't persecuted AND could be sure they would never be again, but we do not have such a world.Jewish people should be safe and happy and able to live anywhere they want to, just like anyone else. A Jewish State shouldn't be necessary. I understand why it happened after the holocaust but it seems like the hard liners in charge took a very different lesson from that. Apparently that they should do it first so no one else gets a chance to do it to them.
Of course i'm not Jewish so my opinion matters fuck-all in the situation of how this all started. And Israel exists and nothing will change that either. It's not going anywhere, so that has to be dealt with as a reality. I just feel like if you're making a place for yourself and some other people happen to live there too jumping to "push them out or kill them all" isn't a proper solution. Giving them second class or no class status and making them miserable until they leave counts as pushing them out for this example.
Business as usual in Israel: two rockets presumeable from the Gaza strip hit targets in Israel, one landed in the sea, the other in Tel Aviv. No casualties on the side of Israel. But the fact that the rockets reached Tel Aviv shows it's no DIY job, but military grade hardware being used, and Israel's rocket defense measures failed; normally Hamas' rockets don't have that kind of range, it's really rare that a rocket reaches the capital.
Israel's air force hit 100 targets in the Gaza strip after that for revenge. It's less than a month to the reelection of Netanyahu.
