The EU

Google says the EU requires a notice of cookie use (by Google) and says they have posted a notice. I don't see it. If cookies bother you, go elsewhere. If the EU bothers you, emigrate. If you live outside the EU, don't go there.

Chanukah is a Holiday of Resistance.

For John, BLUFChanukah should be a Christian celebration also.  Nothing to see here; just move along.

From the Blog Sultan Knish (Author by Mr Daniel Greenfield) we have a meditation on Chanukah, "A Dangerous Holiday"
Holidays are a calendar. They mark points in emotional and physical time. They remind of us who we are.

Many of those celebrating Chanukah celebrate a holiday that does nothing more than celebrate 'celebration', the rituals and rites of entertainment, a special food, a symbol whose meaning they don't remember and a little family fun.

Chanukah is many things but it is not a safe holiday. It is a victory celebration in a guerrilla war. It is a reminder that Obama's war on Jerusalem was preceded long before him by Antiochus's war on Jerusalem. It is a brief light in a period of great darkness.

I have always, since I read Macabees, understood that this is about revolution and the overthrow of oppressors.

And, I see it as a precursor of the freedom promised by Christmas.
