A portrait of "Red", a Judas Goat who leads sheep into the slaughter house.
The heartless one will sell his own brothers and sisters down the river for a few scraps of food.
Wiki: A Judas goat is a trained goat used at a slaughterhouse and in general animal herding. The Judas goat is trained to associate with sheep or cattle, leading them to a specific destination. In stockyards, a Judas goat will lead sheep to slaughter, while its own life is spared. Judas goats are also used to lead other animals to specific pens and on to trucks.
I was thinking yesterday (Not that this is unusual activity for me) that maybe this was a message to me, the fact that in my searches for the blog I came across this traitor of an animal. Maybe, in some strange way, it was referring to me, that I lead other Jews to the spiritual shechitah by running this blog and rallying against certain members of the Rabbinical establishment. That for the little bit of enjoyment that I get from seeing action on the blog I sell my soul to the "devil" and herd all those fine, innocent little "ציגעלעך" to the point of no return. The problem is that nobody would work that hard and do such evil just for the few comments I get. Plus, the nasty emails and ad-hominem attacks I get are enough to make a grown man cry, so that pretty much debunks that theory. Which is why we're trying hard to make this thing work financially; that way we can exchange a guilty conscience for some cold, hard cash, like so many of us do, just in a slightly different different way.
