Geraldo caught with pants down

1005GeraldoRivera.jpgGeraldo, in making a point about the immigration issues, uses some Nazi imagery to get his point across on O’Reilly. Even though he is Jewish (Son of Cruz Allen Rivera and Lillian Friedman), why does he reach for this metaphor?

GERALDO RIVERA: I think it’s outrageous, and what she said was outrageous. You know, I have two Hispanic-American sons. You know what this is going to result in? This is going to result in racial profiling. If, in her America, in Michelle’s America, when you look, is that Hispanic guy an illegal or is he legal? It reminds me so much of when they used to pull down the pants of Jews to see if they were circumcised or not. It is, it is so, so pathetic. It’s so un-American.

Not to mention that the man has four ex’s and five kids. What about the other kids Gerald?

According to Wiki and NNDB , Geraldo has a lot more than just two boys—but I guess he is on the whole pull down the pants thing.
* Erica Levy (10 August 2003— ) one child, a daughter born in August 2005
* C.C. Dyer (11 July 1987 – 2000) (divorced)
Son: Cruz (b. 1987)
Daughter: Isabella Holmes (b. 7-Nov-1992)
Daughter: Simone Cruickshank (b. Sep-1994)
* Sherryl Raymond (31 December 1976 – 1984) (divorced) one son Gabriel Miguel
* Edith Vonnegut (14 December 1971 – 1975) (divorced)
* Linda Coblentz (1965 – 1969) (divorced)

And then if that were not strange

enough (his pants comment and that he doesn’t recognize his daughters as having a problem) he digs this one even deeper…

RIVERA: People have been pulling down the pants of Jews since Hammurabi. The Spanish expulsion, the French expulsion, the British expulsion, the Arab countries expelling the Jews. It is not about Nazism.

Right…Since Hammurabi!@?#

Pulling pants down?  Geraldo they burned the Jews. They didn’t  check  if they were circumcised .

Indie minyan study needs your input

ikarniksWhat is the momentum behind the resurgence of small spiritual communities over the last 40 some years? There has yet to be a proper study of this phenomenal process until now.

S3K Synagogue Studies Institute, in collaboration with Mechon Hadar, has launched a survey designed by the prominent sociologist Steven M. Cohen in partnership with Rabbi Elie Kaunfer and Shawn Landres. They are studying the participants, members, partners, and “acquaintances” of these new spiritual communities. The results of this work will help provide a wider frame for understanding the interests, values, and concerns of Jews in America today who choose to be affiliated.

If you are connected with such a community, we hope you will join with us in making this research endeavor a success by participating in the survey. Please click here ( to complete the survey. We think you’ll find the survey engaging and enjoyable to complete. It’s not too long – it should take no longer than 15 minutes. Your answers are confidential.

Conference organizer fails to have Yes Men arrested

Text of speech, photos, video:
GO-EXPO statement:
Press conference before this event, Friday, Calgary:
More links at end of release.

Imposters posing as ExxonMobil and National Petroleum Council (NPC) representatives delivered an outrageous keynote speech to 300 oilmen at GO-EXPO, Canada’s largest oil conference, held at Stampede Park in Calgary, Alberta, today.

The speech was billed beforehand by the GO-EXPO organizers as the major highlight of this year’s conference, which had 20,000 attendees. In it, the “NPC rep” was expected to deliver the long-awaited
conclusions of a study commissioned by US Energy Secretary Samuel Bodman. The NPC is headed by former ExxonMobil CEO Lee Raymond, who is also the chair of the study. (See link at end.)

In the actual speech, the “NPC rep” announced that current U.S. and Canadian energy policies (notably the massive, carbon-intensive exploitation of Alberta’s oil sands, and the development of liquid
coal) are increasing the chances of huge global calamities. But he reassured the audience that in the worst case scenario, the oil industry could “keep fuel flowing” by transforming the billions of people who die into oil. Read more

And some people say he is out of touch…

Well he at least knows the most comfy sandles!

Unless this was photoshopped….
