    Years ago I was visiting one of my Aunt’s parents, Pop and Mom #######, along with other members of my family. These were rural people, “the common clay”, as Gene Wilder opined in that wonderful satire of a movie. Anyway, the conversation worked around to food and drink. Pop: “WAIL, I AIN’T NEVER DRUNK NUTHIN’ BUT WATER. YOU (i.e., A# 466) KIN HAVE ALL ’AT AIR BEER YE WONT, BUT I NEVER TUK NONE OF IT! WATER’S ALLUS BIN GOOD ’NUF FER ME!" (Pop was a little hard of hearing, you see.) Mom; Wail ever’body, git in here an’ shove yer laigs under th’ table. Supper’s ready." “WHUT WE HAVIN’, MOM!?” “Chik’n n’ dumplin’s.” “WHAT SAY!?” "CHIK’N AND DUMPLIN’S, POP!’ "WAIL, I AIN’T NEVER LIKED YER DUMPLIN’S. THEY ALWAYS BIND ME UP!’

    “Dubliners” is a collection of short stories written by James Joyce. In one of those stories, “Ivy Day in the Committee Room”, the gossiping Irish pols use this method to open their beer (or porter or stout) bottles. They were more successful.

    As long as it’s an accusation against Democrats, liberals, toadies who aren’t “loyal” enough, anyone contravening GOP lies with facts, etc., etc., etc.

    I think it is illegal. It’s called profiteering, and it’s not just the weapons makers that profit from it.

    In the words of Calvin Coolidge: “You lose.” (But I usually respond to another commenter’s reply, as I did here.)

    I agree. That is what the situation is in Israel, and it’s shaky at best. It seems that liberal democracy, which seemed to show some promise after WW2, is dying everywhere, choked by nationalism, or rather a poisonous cocktail of racism, xenophobia, and jingoism.

    Sorry. I inferred from your comment that a country needs multiple parties to have a democratic form of government, and that the US purports to be a democracy with two viable parties ( a significant decline from what was the case years a go), when in fact its two parties are utterly polarized, at each other’s throats, immobilized, and well and truly on the way to a plutocratic supported dictatorship. I don’t view Israel as a democracy. Its condition is like the US’s: the real power rests in a reactionary minority with delusions of grandeur, longing for a glorious past that never was, and has crafted a clever way to acquire and maintain power in spite of — or because of its minority status and so-called weakness. Plato had a point when he stated in “Republic” that Justice is the power of the weaker over the stronger. And he also warned of the dire consequences following a take over of a government by what he called “drones”; a calamity which we are witnessing daily, not just in the US, but in EVERY liberal democracy on the planet.
