^Whatever. I really admire & respect you, ckthankgod - but the entire tone of this thread is really going down a very slippery slope at this point.

I'm having trouble taking this all seriously, but to the degree that I'm able to do so I'll suggest that you've answered your own question right here. Your perception is skewed because you live in an area with a high concentration of Jews. Being that the U.S. has the third highest population of any nation, I'd guess there are other groups who are found in greater numbers here than in any other country.

Well, I'm a Buddhist and I think the person who started this thread will be upset to learn that the number of us Buddhists have tripled in the last 20 years or so.

Here in the greater Philadelphia area we have over 50 Buddhist temples.

It is not unreasonable to project - demographics being what they are - there will be more Buddhists in the US than Jews in 50 years.

Are we trying to take over? Maybe.

PS, I don't say Merry Christmas ... I say Happy Holidays.

This thread is a waste of cyberspace. As someone who has Jewish family members, I find the underlying motives behind this thread insulting and offensive.

A better question than why so many Jews are in the U.S. is why we have so many racist jerks?

This thread has nothing to do with racism or insulting people!

A simple question ~ Why do so many Jews live in the U.S., and not settled in other countries in the world?

Well at least the buddhist are not taking power and controlling America as the Jews do.

I don't care what you say - America is still a Christian nation

Asking why so many of (insert minority group) live in America and suggesting that it's a bad thing that the members of that minority group are "taking over the country" = bashing or racism. Doesn't matter which minority group. City-Data doesn't allow hate speech, bashing or racism, so this thread is closed.

Here's a reminder of that section of the TOS, in case you question whether City-Data has a rule against this:
