I don't know, I thought this was the new ATS game.

If you have X number of religions and Z numbers of fingers to point and the difference in length between two trains heading in opposite directions equals Y, what is the sum of their hypotenuse?

I didn't win?

What is your take on royal bank of scotland. I have heard they were in new york working on the Bail out, but I don't understand in what capacity.
Exactly what are your thoughts on RBS. Sorry Mods I know this is off topic.

wow
..seriously wow. i had no idea we had 100 jews in the house.

that number is amazing.

now I understand why we send $10 billion a year to Israel.


nothing against good jews whatso ever, but seriously...100?

what is the ratio on that? how many are there in the house 460 sumthin?

thats almost a 1/4th!

how many jews are there in the u.s.? I think a generous estimate would be 10 million?...thats probably way too high.

wonder how many muslim?

thanks for bringing this topic up though unit


by the way..luv the name


edit to deny ignorance:

ok..so i did not read through the entire thread..obviously. It was pointed out to me that there definitely are not 100 jews in the house or even all together for that matter.

But

there still is a very high ratio of Jews in goverment compared to how many Jews reside in the U.S.

i think that is something to look at either way. especially with all the info out there on the rothschild clan and what not

seems..off balance to say the least.

There is such a thing as inflation, but of course you must know what that is.

since he was implying that the no votes were all jewish votes, the edit stands. It is a hell of a nice example of how one can take something that isn't fact, assume it is, and create a little mob mentality.

fortunately, we have a few members who actually looked into the claim.




Wow, what a post. Thankfully the mods injected some truth.

I don't think you are a an anti-semite or a racist OP. But if you start off with some prejudice and preconceived notions, and add a little ignorance (or a lot), and then take no steps to even do minimum research or fact checking (I know lernin is hard), then I'd say you are like a little racist stem cell just waiting to grow.

I know how to flag a post, and how to star a post. I just have one question.
How do you indicate that this is the MOST INANE POST I have ever read?

Don't we have REAL subjects to discuss? Last time I checked, there were several major wars going on, a worldwide collapse of the economic system, a trans-Atlantic Housing crises, Global Weather Change, and various other topics.

Personally I think it's hysterical that whenever something like this comes up, it's always about the Jews... if I had the time I would make a thread about how a Jew has never been President or Vice President, and how the leaders are always Christians of some form. Actually, was watching something on the news about this earlier. Why are there never atheists around in politics? I bet that there are, anyway... they just don't say anything about it.

The reason (one of the many that I've heard) why people get anti-Semitic in the first place is because Jews are really successful. Why do you think there are so many more doctors and lawyers who are Jewish? I come from a Jewish family one side and I can tell you honestly the sons do get "nudged" to become "doctahs" or "lawyahs" or they just end up doing that eventually anyway. Maybe it's because they are good at it, or because they end up in medicine and politics the same way that Asians end up in science and math fields.

Also a note- The majority of Jews in my family and that I know personally are Democrats. The majority of Christians that I know are Republicans. I'm not saying that this is the case with everybody, but it's just an observation that I've made.

your math is WAY off


Very much so... but this is the issue with people who believe emails.... In case you didn't know, this one is making the rounds much like the Obama slander emails...

To correct the figure, I'll use the estimated TAXPAYING US citizens, as I don't see how it's fair to give anything to those that don't pay taxes...

EST. Taxpayers per the figure given for the Stimulus deal - 130, 000, 000...

700,000,000,000 / 130,000,000 = a whopping $5,384.61 per person..



If the bill passes that is how much you owe.

I am self admittedly not the sharpest knife in the kitchen in the ats block.

Was I imagining things when I 'heard' they would have to put off the vote till Congress came back on Thursday. Now, I hear that it is thru with the senate.

I am confused.

It kicks back to the House floor. If the House defeats it again, it's dead. Unless, of course, the Senate makes even more changes and passes it again, then it kicks back to the House, and so on until it passes both the House and Senate to then be presented to Bush to sign or veto.

Changing the the title of this thread was weak.
IMO this thread should have been put in the trash bin by ATS admins
I didn't realize race bating was allowed/condoned on ATS.

Things that make ya go hhhmmm ???????

Perhaps it is more a matter of who is a Zionist than whether they are of any particular faith. I do not believe that Zionist's have any real beliefs in a higher order, other than themselves ( and maybe Satan or something similar, like a stone owl).

Judaism is a religion, not a race. Semites are people whose forebears came from the Middle East, which would therefore include many Moslems.

Jews make up 2% of the US population, therefore they are over- represented in politics. Fact.

Eastern Europe here: I do not get it ! 100 jews in the house ??? How many ppl are "in the house" in totlal?? then what is the percentage of the jews of the total US population - is this reflected "in the house" too? If not.. are you nuts??????

(i see someone said that 2% of the US population are jews in the US , does this mean that there are about 5000 people "in the house" ?? this woud make a fair representation for their minority )

See Abelievingskeptic above. He/she states there are around 460 in the House; therefore the Jews are way over-represented according to their religion.

it looks like they are over-represented by a factor of 10. So they are 10 times more likely to get to that position than the average American.. this is national security issue I guess as they obviously are not 100% dedicated for the good of the US .
