b1-66er: the newest weapon in my arsenal, "if you're against the arabs, you're anti-semitic."
special K: Literally true but silly.
b1: you say that only because of your background.
it helps bring home the point of tolerance.
K: I think it's generally accepted meaning. We could ask 10 strangers.
b1: oh there's no doubt. but that doesn't mean that what they believe is true...
...just because they think and believe it.
K: And what is truth?
Is truth unchanging law?
We both have truths.
Are mine the same as yours?
b1: no. truth is definition.
the definition of semite. it is, very truly, that simple. anything else is a complication you are adding.
K: Meanings change. E.g terrific, fantastic, gay, awful.
b1: oh, well you be sure to tell me when the OED says it means exclusively all things judaic, fuzzy.
you owe me a dollar a month until then.
b1: does israel produce any oil?
K: No. God's little joke.
b1: he's just pro-semetic.
b1: nice one!
how can you POSSIBLY win in that position?
"checkmate with king only."
K: Thanks. He redeemed me.
b1: and that, ladies and gentlemen, is the maraschino cherry on your sun-K.
K: Thank you.
