That's funny. I went to Natalie Portman's speach at the University of Cincinnati campus where she talked about how important it was to vote for Barack Obama, but never once mentioned puppies. She did bring her dog, though.

Great way to make light of the pain, anxiety, and suffering of millions. But it's an easy thing to do when you are a member of the economic elite like so many Jews are in America, right?

There is no economic Crisis. The crisis is religious crisis. It is crisis of energy between British and German, not even France. Here, Japanese is taking over. I would not be Chinese anyway, so it would not be my business. My destiny, a place with no war and no homeless, either argentina or New Zeland. It is a joke. Let tycoons fight and talk.
