The Day of the Dhimmi is Done -

And the snow just started a few minutes ago. We're not supposed to get much here, though. About 70 miles northeast, up by my parents and sisters in NJ, they've got close to half a foot already and they're gonna get a bit more overnight. But not as much as New England. Stay dry and warm, everyone up there!
They're talking the worst storm since '78.It's time to just hunker down and ride it out.
Quarter to five, and it's over for us. We got an inch, if that, here in my neighborhood. Kensington, about three miles northeast of Center City. Wind looks really nasty out there, though, and everything looks hard and icy. Blah. Certainly shouldn't complain, though! It's still going on further up northeast for another few hours, where they already have feet.January '96 is the worst winter storm I remember, we got about 37 inches of snow, I think it was, where I was living that year. I was negative-one year old in '78. ;)
Still sucks that Times of Israel is so lame in being able to hold on to messages. To blame Facebook is a joke. If that is the way they interface, then they should fix it.
Weird that I've never had a problem there, it's usually me who the Technology Overlords like to mess with. Heh. I do see others posting there with Yahoo accounts, and that was a complete fail for me when I tried to do that, so yeah. It does seem to be the weirdest place when it comes to random commenting glitches, that I've ever come across. I recall Doodad mentioning he had problems, too.
It was there for awhile, then vanished. They don't care enough to solve it.I do suggest that people go to Tikkun Daily and confront The Troub, civilliy, of course, so that his arrogance and indifference to his fellow Jews may be established for the wider audience. Same for MJ.They say pro-Israel people are Israel Firsters, but what does supporting Hamas and Hezbollah make them? Too smart for us, in their solidarity with sworn enemies. I think they are fools, and their positions immoral.
Yeah, as for Tikkun Daily - I just noticed MJ Rosenberg writes for them, as well, when I went there to check out their 'roster' yesterday. Another winner. Their blog roll is 'interesting' too, especially its link to Mondoweiss. Talk about three strikes: David Harris-Gershon, MJ Rosenberg and Mondoweiss.I mean, not that there's anything wrong with having one specific-ish point of view (as most blogs do), but despite the protestations of its defenders I do not see any voices or links at that site which even come remotely close to being the flip side of those anti-Israel coins.
And as for the TOI piece - I was only going to comment in Ms. Price's piece there if my buddy David showed up, which he didn't. Otherwise, I decided to leave it be, and let Mike handle it when he gets around to it.
Actually, Jay, you will see that Gershon-Harris has contributed in the comments to Price's TOI piece.
Yeah? I still don't see that, and never did. Let me check again...
Yeah, still not there. I see 19 comments, though the site tells me there's 13 comments, and no comments from him. I tell ya, man, I have no idea what's going on with that?
How odd because there are two comments from Harris-Gershon directly underneath a comment from Jon Segall in Price's article.I like TOI very much, but they need to fix their commenting system.
I don't see any three of those comments. That is rather inexplicable, no?Is there any chance you can maybe mention that they consider instituting a single, 'cleaner' commenting system along the lines of Disqus, or something?
Ah ha! I figured it out, and I see them now. Actually, there's like a dozen comments in that thread by now. I am certainly not needed there. Yet another example of my observation that David Harris-Gershon is fantastically and amusingly horrible at defending himself on forums at which he doesn't have the protection of Daily Kos moderators. I can't wait for a potential debate between him and, say, Alan Dershowitz one day...:-D
Is mine there? If so, it's like they have a short in their electrical system. An oldschool way of looking at things.I am having a blast at Progressive Zionist conversing with a real prize package of hate in the defense of ideas like we see from The Troub.
School, I do not see any comments from you in that thread.Harris-Gershon's comments had to be opened to see them under a Jon Segall comment, but I do not see anything from under the article at all.
No, I still do not see yours. Although when that one thread showed up, a couple older comments disappeared and have not yet reappeared, despite a reload of the page.I read that thread over there with your Brave Anonymous interlocutor. Fantastic stuff. I picture that person fist-pumping and flexing in the mirror after leaving each comment, positive they've just scored a knockout blow, only to check back increasingly frustrated at being repeatedly brushed off as the inane, hateful boor that they are.
That this is the level of their thinking is upsetting, actually. I don't think this person could figure his way out of a paper bag.
"Would you give him an uprate?" was an actual, literal "laugh out loud" moment, for the record...
Though not a conservative, I do read what conservatives write, unlike the dismissive attitude of some progressives who live in an echo chamber as described by Dianna Mutz.http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x46wes_icitizenforum-diana-mutz-interview_news#.URcOM2dqSOFAnyway, a good article by David Solway, for all sides to read and consider:http://pjmedia.com/blog/fractures-on-the-right/
Will read, thanks.(You know, like maybe four years ago I wouldn't have even bothered clicking the link upon seeing the source. Glad I moved on from that...)
It's just as bad with conservatives, the so-called "Mutz Paradox."I just referenced progressives because of a recent conversation where someone told me he did not have to read something different because he "knew" what it said.
Or maybe "agreed" isn't the right word. Perhaps 'acknowledged' or 'recognized?' Oh I dunno, time to just move on, Jay... ;)
My daughter took her first driving lesson today. Oh dear...I suppose New Jersey is the best place to learn, though. After all, if you can make it there you can make it anywhere.(Those lunatics!)
