Is “Pecker has taken the witness stand” what Jeffrey Toobin says when reporting on a trial or what Jeffrey Toobin says when getting on a Zoom call? Perhaps both?

No doubt Asians will be especially delighted by reduced competition from Jews for admission to our most prestigious schools.

Big Toliet came to me in a dream. It said, "If you build it, they will come..."

Watching the embedded video in the article with the chanting antisemites, I was very much reminded of the Borg from Star Trek. Only this is real, so much more frightening. But that's what their chanting sounded like to me.

I wish I could monetize my pettiness like Taylor Swift!

I live in east TN and I haven’t seen any extremism here from the left or

The right. There are a lot of recent arrivals who are definitely liberal who are looking for a good place to raise a family. I’m just hoping that if they continue to vote liberal it will be for moderates 🤞

The protest at Columbia looked like Lord of the Flies come to life.

I noticed the flies surrounding those people as well.

"We derive zero pleasure from this news, but let it be noted that Bass, despite having pledged to expand the Los Angeles Police Department, is presiding over a historic downsizing of it."

Enough already. It is both morally good and necessary to derive pleasure from watching people hoist with their own petard. I am so sick of being told that we should somehow not take pleasure when people like Bass have their homes broken into by the very people they have spent so much time protecting.

Enough. Basta. 够了. The Dems deserve to suffer. I hope Chicago hurts like hell in August...

Now David Mamet is saying that diversity and inclusion, and efforts toward those are "garbage" and "fascist totalitarianism." Since this is straight up y'all's vein of hatred, you should see if he can do some writing for you. Then maybe you could spare us the preschool drawings he calls...well, I don't know what he calls them.

I'm currently reading this article and it struck me how naive some Jewish people are being when it comes to supporting terrorism against people in Israel.

I can't help but think once Jewish people on the side of supporting terrorism no longer serve their purpose, the hateful will come for them too.

Next they will come for those of us with Jewish ancestry who aren't culturally Jewish if this hate is allowed to continue.

When Hamas says they want to wipe out all Jews, I believe them.

Many of us have known for some time you can't look in the Northeast if you want a traditional college experience. My kid loves SMU where there's no campus bullshit, and the best thing that ever happened to my daughter was getting turned down by Yale (went to Annapolis).

Well....well....well.....

Fake "I <heart> Hamas" stickers on campus. Lawsuit incoming. It was an "independent contractor." ;)

Why are we recycling Bari's speech of really not long ago? Does anyone here need a reminder that Bari believes Jewish people are the most oppressed in the history of the world, and that free speech ends when one criticizes Israel, and that antisemitism engulfs us? Oh, and that sending billions overseas to fund stupid wars is a great idea. Someone should get a side-by-side of Bari and Liz Cheney. They have different color hair, but everything else is pretty mirrored.

No, I think we're pretty clear on where all you guys stand on this stuff.

One wonders when the lunacy will end. Will the electorate ever see what is really happening, or will they be satisfied with years of unfulfilled promises?

Moved south more than fifty years ago. Found tolerance, unforced diversity . warmth and a quality of life not available in the northeast. Would never go back alive.
