Our leaders continue to condemn China for resisting democracy, but our own American democracy is dying the death of a thousand cuts. China has one corrupt entrenched fossilized party and we have two of the same — how different is that?

A Yom Kippur Miracle (or karmic justice)

I’ve decided to share something personal, which I never do here on Tumblr, but this is kind of awesome.

I grew up with a very bitter, resentful, angry, racist, bigoted and nearly Nazi level anti-semitic father. Imagine if Rush Limbaugh, Bill O’reilly, Sean Hanitty, Anne Coulter and the ghost of Adolph Hitler could somehow reproduce; that’s my dad. He spewed hatred and anger at blacks, jews, asians, gays, women - you name it, almost constantly for as long as I can remember, bullied us (wife and kids) and made life just generally miserable.

My siblings and I now tolerate him (as long as he keeps his mouth shut) but there is little trust or love. My siblings and I have all completely rejected his worldview and my family has become quite diverse, including my gay younger brother and his Mexican husband, Asian and Russian grand children and friends of all sorts of ethnic and religious persuasions. Dad has been biting his tongue for a few decades, because it has been made clear to him that he will not be allowed to expose the next generation - his grandchildren - to that bile. He knows that if he steps out of line, he will not be allowed to see his grand kids. My mother has made it clear that if that happens, she will leave him; so he behaves. He will still try to bait us with racist and/or anti-semetic, sexist or homophobic test balloons, but he gets shut down immediately. It mostly keeps things civil when we gather, but we have no illusions that he has actually changed. 24/7 Fox news viewing and racist chain emails as evidence.

Well, recently one of my siblings decided to sign up for one of those “ancestry” dot com type websites, which included having a DNA test done. We received the results the day before Yom Kippur (the Jewish day of atonement).


We kids are a bit more than an eighth Ashkenazi Jewish on our mother’s side, plus about 1% North African, my mother being about a quarter.

If I believed in a god, I’d almost certainly accept that this was a very direct message to my (let me state again; extremely racist, anti-semitic) father; on the day of atonement, he finds out that his wife and kids are all Jews.


Hey Dad - that’s Karma, bitch.
