Shakespeare references should be encouraged and well received, for the betterment of all.


But perhaps that is a bit Panglossian.

Meh, I'll believe Jews are truly outraged by antisemitic Democrats when they stop voting Democrat. Until then, I'm not very sympathetic.

I'm outraged and have never voted D. Just had a conversation today with my wife about a friend of hers who is Jewish. She's a Democrat. I asked my wife how could she be when they are against Israel. She didn't know so I'll ask the woman myself.

"Shylock" seems a more accurate description of payday lenders than it does persons of Jewish descent.

From a literature aspect, the use is appropriate. Shylock demanded his pound of flesh as repayment for a defaulted loan. Payday lenders are nothing more than legalized loan sharks.

Dr. Thomas Sowell had a very interesting article about payday lenders.

If low income people don't want to use high interest credit, then they should not use high interest credit.

It really is that simple.

Typical liberal asshole crusader in action, trying to point fingers of blame at everyone else for society's ills, when in fact, THEY are the biggest cause of social ills in this country.

On Tuesday, the vice president offered up a series of candid insights in the wide-ranging speech, at one point saying he was proud of his children but joking that he wished one of them were a Republican eager to make money “so that when they put me in a home, there'll be a window with a view.”

I've seen those payday places drag unsuspecting people right off the street at gunpoint and force them to sign for a loan.

I'd charge high interest rates too if my typical customer was a loser who couldn't control his budget and spending and who had a high rate of default.

These places exist because no one else is stupid enough to loan money to them at anything close to a normal interest rate.

How is that anti-semetic? Shylock, whether he was Jewish or not, was a very nasty, dishonest money lender. The term fits if you think that payday lenders are dishonest and predatory.

Shylock is a derisive term for Jews, based on the Shakespeare character, who have a stereotype of being money-grubbing.

Jews got into the money-lending and banking business in the dark ages because it was deemed somehow corrupt or immoral for Christians to engage in it.

I didn't know it was used as a general derogatory term.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shylock

Lots of complexity with the name

English society in the Elizabethan era has been described as antisemitic.[10] English Jews had been expelled in 1290 and were not permitted to return until the rule of Oliver Cromwell. Jews were often presented on the Elizabethan stage in hideous caricature, with hooked noses and bright red wigs, and were usually depicted as avaricious usurers; an example is Christopher Marlowe's play The Jew of Malta, which features a comically wicked Jewish villain called Barabas. They were usually characterized as evil, deceptive, and greedy.

The Nazis used Shylock for their propaganda. Shortly after Kristallnacht in 1938, The Merchant of Venice was broadcast for propagandistic ends over the German airwaves. Productions of the play followed in Lübeck (1938), Berlin (1940), and elsewhere within Nazi-occupied territory

For those that don't read Shakespeare and didn't know this was a derogatory term:

A more recent example, showcasing the anti-Semitic sentiment would be the dinner table scene from American History X when Edward Norton's character refers to Elliott Gould's character as a "Shylock" because he is Jewish.

OMG, another huge boner from Biden

Vice President Joe Biden stumbled again Friday.

Speaking at a Democratic event devoted to women’s issues, Mr. Biden made a favorable reference to former Sen. Bob Packwood, an Oregon Republican who resigned in 1995 amid accusations that he had sexually harassed women over a period of decades.

Mr. Biden mentioned Mr. Packwood — and also the late Maryland Republican Sen. Mac Mathias – as examples of GOP lawmakers willing to work across the aisle and support progressive legislation.

If it's a day that ends with "y", then Biden said something stupid.

Now he has had to apologize to 2 heads of state (Turkey and the UAE) after he stated that they fund and support ISIS.

It was the second time in two days that Biden had to call a key partner in President Barack Obama’s coalition to walk back comments he made on Thursday, when he said that U.S. allies — including Turkey, Saudi Arabia and the UAE — had funded and armed extremist groups linked to Al Qaeda.

Earlier Sunday, an exasperated UAE requested "a formal clarification” from Biden on comments that America’s allies in the Middle East sent weapons and cash to extremists fighting in Syria.
