Shabbat Ideas – November 17, 2006

While I am SURE a few people may be reading this blog as of now, I will be more polite with my thoughts of this Erev Shabbat.

There are more Jews affiliating with Judaism thanks to Outreach. That is good
The Socialist Party will back a woman in Presidential Race in France. Good for Lefties, but good for the Jews? Remains to be seen…
Milton Friedman, z”l, passed away. Sad. Even liberals have to rep such a brilliant mind.
A Very interesting point about Christian involvement in Politics. A good read:

So this was my first week on the block. I was the new kid at school but I have seemed to piss some folks off. Well, for that I am sorry. I am only pointing out some inaccuracies in judgment, perhaps mine and perhaps those of whom I have pissed off. While I do understand that everyone is entitled to his or her opinion regarding everything, I believe I am right for me. That does not mean, that I am right for you, but I will let you know what I think. I am not a passive liberal. I am a pissed off one.

This simply means that when I see something that I disagree/agree with, like/dislike or any other such emotion, I will say it. Liberals, for too long, have been relative. There is no need to be a relativist. It doesn’t make any sense to have an opinion and not stand up for it. I do not apologize for having opinions and voicing them. Yet in some cases you need to listen to your critics and be critical of yourself as well. Once again I point to myself and those who have criticized me.

In regards to my profile change: I was shown my own self-righteousness by some very pissed off post-doms. I must apologize for my tone in my initial posts. I should have posed a question. Yet I still can't get my head around the idea of like minded people with similar ideals and beliefs not being part of something that in and of itself is a separate denomination/sect/philosophy from a majority of the overarching system of belief are not a denomination. Jewbiq well done and thanks for the link. I have heard what you have to say, and will keep my tone in mind when I continue to pose questions.

Shabbat Shalom.
