Why should Jewish religion and ethnicity be considered unique or special, or "exceptional"?

How iare Jews different from other religious and ethnic groups in America?

There is also a steady decline of Americans who identify themselves as Norwegian Lutherans as "liberal" Norwegian Lutherans in America shed their inhertited ethnicity and dogmatic religious views.

"Would it work on Trump if the needles were big enough?"

Absolutely. The escaping hot air would deflate him in seconds.

I rode that same, ill fated BART train, Blurtman. It took me three and half hours, two bus rides, and about two miles of walking to get home. Eventually about an hour and a half after BART dumped us on the street, MUNI arrived. BART did nothing to assist.

When a union of health care professionals are allowed to maintain a closed shop that financially benefits only them and actually harms the public.

We should have had such a law in place years ago and the literally thousands of scientists and engineers and physicians who have been trained here but were not allowed to remain here and work would have had an opportunity to contribute to our economy. Let's be honest. America's R & D industry is what has always driven our economy and it has always been dependent on immigrants.

The Dow Jones Index is up but many stocks have not advanced, and many have actually dropped since the election. Alsothe events over the weekend have undoubtedly caused a lot of people, especially investors to become become alarmed.

BTW I own Berkshire Hathaway and biotechnology and my portfolio is actually down slightly since the election. It did go up at first but has fallen significantly in the past two/three weeks.

Biotech has slide sharply since Trump's election

Alan Dershowitz is a plagiarist, a defender of the rights of the rich and famous, and a shill for the extreme right wing Israeli government.

There is no evidence the violence at UC Berkeley was committed by anyone connected with the University and absolutely no reason to suspect any of the scientists or graduate students involved in scientific research at UC Berkeley had any involvement in the violence directed at the speaker. Trump wants to shut down American science by iirresponsible and inflamatory statements, to disguise his intentions.

Neither Trump or his supporters has any use for science and technology which involves really hard work, integrity and dedication, not just spouting off BS, blaming everyone else for your failures and then lying about your deeds.

BTW The University acted to prevent further violence, specifically to prevent people attending the talk from being attacked

Patrick says "Talk about his positions!".

That's actually a major part of the problem. No one, not even Trump, seems to know what his positions are from hour to hour.

"They shut down osteopathic schools...."

There are presently 34 osteopathic medical schools that graduate almost one third of the licensed practicing physicians in the U. S.

The "Trump Market"has been very good for index investors but when there have been gains in the tech area, they are still significantly below what was projected for that sector and other sectors before the election.

SF is offering free services to transgender folks, drawing people from all over the U.S. and costing SF taxpayers millions

"Experts discussed plans that BART has to work with Muni and the city to help homeless people find the help they need, and eventually find a better place to sleep. But they made it clear homeless people can’t just be thrown out of the station."

Who are the unnamed "experts"?

And who is on this Board of Directors and had never been to the Powell Street station before?

And who represents riders in all this?

I actually just got home from another harrowing BART ride. The last car out of Civic Center to the Penninsula five PM. The car had been literally taken over by three teen age girls, one black and two mixed race or Somoan. They played there music so loud but offensive you could literally not hear the baby crying in a mothers arms as she was trying to comfort it. Of course they knew they would be able to do on BART at five o'clock week day rush hour without fear of being interrupted. Folks, we have always taken BART at our own risk. We are now taking it at our own peril. It hasn't just been handed over to the homeless but now it's been handed over to the thugs, as Muni was years ago. /p>

This is official policy now at the City & County of SF. Meanwhile SF is now offering free transgender surgery to all who ask and this has made SF the center of the transgender industry.

I have commuted every day on BART for 20 years. I have never seen a BART police officer at a BART station or on a BART train although I frequently see SFPD officers at BART stations in SF. BART is actually designed to run without "drivers", who have only two jobs - open and close the doors, and announce the stations. Few announce the stations anymore. BART should replace its "drivers" with conductors who carry police radios.

Once again I am proud of the University of Chicago. My brother and I were born at the University of Chicago hospital and always considered ourselves "Alumni".

Our current national anthem is historically racist AND bad music. What about This Land Is Your Land by Woody Guthrie. He was a communist and a lousy husband and father but the song is great!
