Dear Santa, I'd Like Some Balls for X-Mas and Capitalism: A Love Story

A day after the leader of Iran went on an anti-jooo rant that included a denial of the holocaust in front of the U.N., the leader of the free world spoke.

Forget that Iran's leaders rigged an election. That citizens died so that he could remain in office. Forget for a moment that he is simply an angry asshole filled with hate. Cutting deals to get uranium in South America.

Because a day after he went on his latest tirade at the U.N., the leader of the free world spoke. A man with balls. Israel's Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu.

Ben didn't talk about hope and change in some rhetorical and glib fashion. He talked about liars and he named them. He spanked Obama and he spanked the U.N. for being the biggest bunch of worthless chicken-shits on the planet. He told the truth. You see, I didn't have to sort through Netanyahu's words to try to distinguish what he was saying. I didn't need an interpreter or some kid journalist waiting for his first chest hair to explain the subjective diarrhea that spews out of our Dear Leaders yap.

Ben is a real leader. Take notes, Barack. Maybe this year when you play Secret Santa, Mr. Netanyahu will draw your name on his slip of paper. My thanks to Six Meat Buffet for directing me here. Time well spent with You Tube. Here's a brief slice of a four part You Tube vid detailing what Ben had to say...

I've been reading reviews all day on Capitalism; A Love Story. Micheal Moore's latest film. In so doing, I read the same old anti-Moore, anti-liberal attack language in the comments. The same old Rolling Stone liberal schtick in support of the movie. One tribe beating the other tribe, as usual, over the head, ad infinitum.

I'm not going to rush out to see this movie. Why? Because I have been talking and writing about business rigging the game rules with the help of government for years. Changing the laws, removing Glass Steagal. Watching the elite get filthy rich- laughing and robbing the same poor dumb saps that defend them under the guise of capitalism.

It ain't free market competition and it ain't capitalism. It hasn't been for years. It's Frankenstein on the loose. But a few of us know that already. Those of you that have yet to figure it out....please...

Go ahead and believe whatever shit you want to. Maybe you'll crack that upper 5% if you suck up. But then again, there's a 95% chance you won't and brother-I don't like your chances.

Whenever we stand up to those who deny or minimize the Holocaust, or to those who support genocide we send a critical message to the world. We know from captured German war records that millions of innocent Jews were systematically exterminated by Nazi Germany - most in gas chambers. Despite this knowledge, Holocaust deniers ply their mendacious poison everywhere, especially with young people on the Internet. Holocaust books and films help to tell the true story of the Shoah, combating anti-Semitic historical revision. And, they protect vulnerable future generations from making the same mistakes.

I wrote Jacob’s Courage to promote Holocaust education. This coming of age love story presents accurate scenes and situations of Jews in ghettos and concentration camps, with particular attention to Theresienstadt and Auschwitz. It examines a constellation of emotions during a time of incomprehensible brutality. A world that continues to allow genocide requires such ethical reminders and remediation.

Many authors feel compelled to use their talent to promote moral causes. Holocaust books and movies carry that message globally, in an age when the world needs to learn that genocide is unacceptable. Such authors attempt to show the world that religious, racial, ethnic and gender persecution is wrong; and that tolerance is our progeny's only hope.

Viewing the Holocaust through the eyes of young lovers represents a unique and emotionally penetrating analysis of Jewish life during the Shoah. Called, "Gut wrenching and heart rending" Jacob’s Courage allows the reader to comprehend the terror experienced by Holocaust victims on a personal level. Yet, it also reveals the triumphant spirit of humankind and demonstrates how ordinary people can perform extraordinary acts of courage when the lives of loved ones are in danger.
