Follow The Money

The rich get richer taking their money elsewhere creating a downward spiral wherein the poor get poorer. Meanwhile, the moderate income taxpayer continues to get the squeeze.

Screwed and Scrooged Again! Obscenity and the Wealthy

The word obscene means different things to different people. I use the word in a variety of contexts. Today I use the word obscene to describe the rich fat cats of the financial and corporate world. Some people refer to those folks as the wealthy. I say they are obscenely rich. I direct your attention to the story contained in this embedded link.

2010 Top Ten Anti-Semitic Slurs

I have previously written a few times here in Roland Hansen Commentary about anti-Semitism. As much as this prejudice and discrimination against Jewish people (or Jews as some prefer to say) continues to rear its ugly head, it still never ceases to amaze me that many Americans refuse to recognize the fact that anti-Semitism is truly prevalent in the United States of America and indeed throughout the world. This refusal to acknowledge anti-Semitism reminds me of the stories I have heard and read about Nazi Germany under Adolf Hitler. I am also reminded of the Spanish Inquisition. As a person who is Jewish, I have personally experienced the effects of anti-Semitism on numerous occasions.

Recently, I received an interesing e-mail concerning anti-Semitism throughout the world entitled "ANTI-SEMITISM GOES MAINSTREAM - NEWS ALERT: SWC Releases its “TOP 10 ANTI-SEMITIC SLURS OF 2010” List" which had been forwarded to me. As I understand it, this list was initially put together by the Simon Weisenthal Center. I think Many peopple might be amazed to read it; and, others will simple refuse to read it because they really do not give a damn.

If you would care to read that of which I write, and read some actual anti-Semitic quotes of persons from around the world including the U.S.A., just click on the following:

Feel free to give some feedback on all this. I certainly will be interested in reading your comments.

It is Monday. Go Meatless.

After having read the Judy Hansen Commentary Meatless Monday, my curiosity was aroused to learn even more about the Meatless Monday Initiative that has been getting attention.

There has been Meatless Monday in the Media. This whole Meatless Monday thing appears to have been started back in 2003 by the Hopkins School of Public Health.

It used to be that certain Christians had the practice of meatless Fridays; but, that pretty much went by the wayside. Now that there is the movement underfoot to go with Meatless Mondays, even Israelis are jumping on the meatless Mondays bandwagon.

So, people, go meatless. I say go further than just Mondays, though. Save an animal and go meatless every day. Eat Seaweed.
