Aphorisms

An aphorism is defined as: 'a terse saying embodying a general truth, or astute observation, as “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely” (Lord Acton).' Rush Limbaugh's list of Aphorisms is called "24 Undeniable Truths of Life". I have come up with some aphorisms of my own, mostly through observation, reading, and thought. …

“Peaceful Religion” you say? More proof that…

Islam Is Evil.  Pure Evil. Hundreds of innocent worshippers all over Sri Lanka were murdered at their Easter services, by massive bombs placed among the pews at their churches.  The death toll is hundreds, and climbing. This is your "peaceful" religion.  This is heartbreaking.  This is what should inspire justified outrage among Christians and Jews …

I LOVE this Ricochet Post, so I’m re-blogging it here. “Insulting Jews Everywhere, a Call to Congress”

Last week's wimpy resolution against "hate" brought this excellent response from a Jewish friend.  I 100% agree.  Do you? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Dear Members of Congress, You should be embarrassed by your lack of courage regarding the anti-Semitism resolution that has been proposed, and apologize to Jews everywhere. How could you even think of changing the resolution …

In honor of Chanukah, pictures of Israel

This week marks the holiday of Chanukah, and the victory of the Maccabees over the Greek desecrators of the Temple.  The ancient Jews, fighting for their homeland, were fierce warriors, who were not finally defeated until the Romans did so in 70AD with the destruction of the Second Temple in Jerusalem.  Here are some pictures …

Year-End Photo Challenge: Resilient Jews

My People, The Jews, are the most resilient people there are.  We are Creators and scholars, in Science, Medicine, The Law, and Business.  The Jews have survived attempted genocide at the hands of the Romans.  (Just look at what the Roman Empire became-Italy now is a basket-case in Europe, as is Greece.) Yet, We Survive, …

Weekly Photo Challenge…Symbol

This is the most powerful Symbol of my People, The Jews.  This is the Western (or Wailing) Wall, in Jerusalem, the last remnant of the Second Temple, destroyed by the Romans in the year 70CE.  When I was there, in 2007, this took me, and shook me to my core.  A constant reminder of the …

I am Sad Today

It has been very disheartening this week, reading about all the good people whose lives and livelihoods have been under murderous assault, both in the USA and abroad.  In Kenya, many Christian students were murdered by ruthless  terrorists, at their school.   The death toll is nearly 150!  These students were studying, bothering no one. …

Let’s Talk Anti-Semitism

This story is posted on Ricochet, by a new member who is a Swedish Jew.  It tells the sorry tale of her and her children's systematic persecution by others in her (formerly) civilized country.  Remember when Sweden's society was emulated as an example of a country where all were treated equally and fairly, the standard of …

A Politically-incorrect way to think about the conflict in Syria

So while our president is tying himself and his regime in knots trying to figure out what to do in/about Syria, here are some facts. The Iranians have said that, if we bomb Syria, they and their buddies, Hezbollah and Al-Quaeda, will take out the state of Israel. First of all, unlike our so-called commander …
