From Right Web The Surge Scam: Getting Rid of the Goat Commentary by Leon Hadar | September 12, 2007 IRC Right Web rightweb.irc-online.org There is an old Jewish story about a man who lives in a very small house with his wife, many children, no space, and very little money.

The man is shocked: "But, rabbi, as I told you, I have very little space and money. If I buy a goat, I won't have any space and I'll lose all my money." But the rabbi insists: "Get that goat!"
