I wouldn't worry about criticism about being anti-Semitic. Palestinians are Semites, and Israel is anti-Palestinian, thereby making Israel
anti-Semitic. Israel has a restriction on becoming a citizen: you must be Jewish. This would be classified as racist in the US. However, we do not
regard them as racist, but as selective of their citizenry because their State was set apart for the Jewish people following WWII as a safe haven from
the harassment and torture of the World.
You see, it all depends on how you look at it. Frankly, I don't let it bother me because I can't solve the problems of the rest of the World...I have
enough of my own.
As far as rich, great. It's a free country. Use your best talents, hopefully a little luck, and you can be rich, too. If you make your money, and
you want to give it away, go to it. Nobody can give you grief about it.
Political influence? Sure. That's how things are done. If you think politics are going to change in your generation, go occupy a street and see if
anyone notices. Stay long enough and you become a nuisance, not a revolutionary.
Want to change America? Lobby, vote. That's how it works. It works great. It's your choice: ballots or bullets.
I choose ballots.
However, I am beginning to think we need some more careful scrutiny over the election process. Let's form some citizen oversight committees. Let's
get some integrity back into America.
