Yiddish Curses for Democratic Jews

Some of the Yiddish curses for Democratic Jews (responding to Yiddish curses for Republican Jews seen via Paul Krugman):
Republican versionDemocratic version
May your child give his Bar Mitzvah speech on the genius of Ayn Rand. May your child give his Bar Mitzvah speech on the genius of Karl Marx.
May you be reunited in the world to come with your ancestors, who were all socialist garment workers. May you be reunited in the world to come with your grandfather, who was a small businessman who voted for Hoover.
May you have a rare disease and need an operation that only one surgeon in the world, the winner of the Nobel Prize for Medicine, is able to perform. And may he be unable to perform it because he doesn’t take your insurance. And may that Nobel Laureate be your son. May you have a rare disease and need an operation that only one surgeon in the world, the winner of the Nobel Prize for Medicine, is able to perform. And may he be unable to perform it because he doesn’t take government insurance. And may that Nobel Laureate be your son.
May you have a large store, and have it all dismantled by vulture capitalists. May you have a large store, and have it taxed to death by vulture socialists.
May you spend your whole life supporting and voting for and sending money to Israel, and may you one day be actually forced to move there. May you spend your whole life supporting and voting for and sending money to Israel, and may you one day be actually forced to move there. (Wait a moment …)
May you find yourself insisting to a roomful of skeptics that your great-grandmother was “legitimately” raped by Cossacks. May you wish you had never been born.
May your insurance company decide constipation is a pre-existing condition. May you pay twice as much for milk of magnesia because your insurance company was compelled to take your dollars out for a wild night on the town.
May you feast every day on chopped liver with onions, chicken soup with dumplings, baked carp with horseradish, braised meat with vegetable stew, latkes, and may every bite of it be contaminated with E. Coli, because the government gutted the E.P.A. May you waste a ridiculous amount of time responding to an absurd web site only to realize it had been set up by blithering idiots who cannot tell the difference between the E.P.A. and the F.D.A.

Thanks for proving the point that conservatives aren't funny at all. Just mean spirited, hysterical and shallow.

Other than that, we're okay?

Aside from misusing proprietary content, which only a lawyer\judge can give a POV on, yeah, you have every right to let the world know what and how you think. Even if it is hate speech.

Personally I feel sorry for you.

Information wants to be free!

An earlier discussion of intellectual property can be found here.

You're starting to sound a bit like the Scientologists, O anonymous one.

WHAT A HOOT ~!

We ALL take ourselves too seriously.
Even G-D has a sense of humor. That's why Humanity has lasted so long.
