So Cool: Discovery Revives Ancient Tzitzit Dying Methods

This is really neat article from Arutz 7.

Very cool.

Thomas Friedman's Wet Dream Comes True?

Chinese tycoon to buy the New York Times?

The Roma Invasion of the UK: Pooping on Porches Edition

Roma invasion of Britain going exceedingly well. 

Reports from London say the new visitors are already making themselves at home, defecating on private and public property and sleeping on people's doorsteps.

What Would We Do Without Research?

Emotions really cause physical reactions.


In Which Suburban Jewish Mother Agrees With KGB Thug Vlad Putin

I know, never thought it would come to this, but I agree with Vlad Putin.

American Barbarians: "Teens" Beat Up 89 Year Old WW2 Vet

This is absolutely disgusting. 

You'll note how the suspects are described.

Their clothing is described, but not really what they actually look like.

"Police said initial information indicates the people in question are three males in their teens, that wore dark, hooded sweatshirts and dark pants."

A fine, honourable and independent, healthy 89 year old man who survived World War Two cannot walk freely in America and can just barely survive assault by disgusting young punks who have no idea about respect, civic responsibility or any morals or scruples whatsoever.

No major liberal media will report on this of course. It's just not a crime if an upstanding white citizen and vet is injured I guess. 

I'd be willing to bet these punks have no father at home.

Best wishes for Mr. Bollinger's full recovery. This is so awful.

News You Can Use: Designer Vaginas Making Women Even More Crazy Than Usual


Women-you are INSANE. 

What's with the designah vaginah????

Silly, narcissistic women today: "ALL ABOUT ME AND MY VAJAYJAY!"

So, what part of 'if you are obsessed with the appearance (and not function) of your vagina, you are a mental case' is so very difficult to understand?

Is France As Well and Royally Screwed as Britain?

Looks that way. 

Nice of eminent French philosophers to finally clue in that there is a problem.

Great timing!

Between "integration" and their absolutely insane tax rate of 75% things are gonna get really, really MERDEY soon-more MERDEY than now even. 

Yes, I said 75%!!!!


Why not just surrender all of your money at the source?

Between "integration" and their tax rates (i.e highway robbery of the citizenry) France is well and truly screwed! Just like their British buddies across the channel. 

Europe-it looks good on you!

Murdered For the Second Time: Israel Cheapens Jewish Blood


Israel is betraying these families and the souls of their loved ones.

Shame on the government of Israel. 

These barbarian savages should not be taken prisoner.

Musical Interlude While I Make Coffee

So, I had a dream last night that I had to post this song.

I don't know why, but I'm a strong believer that dreams are gateways.

So listen up while I make some coffee.

This is a stunningly beautiful song from Simon's Graceland album. I find it mesmerizing. The harmonies are just so soothing and lovely.

Liberal Racist Melissa Harris-Perry Mocks Romney Family's Adopted Child

Isn't this tampon earring lady??

Yeah, she's a real intellectual heavyweight.

Racist liberal.

I guess for her it's better that black babies languish in state care than be adopted by a white, loving family?

Better for orphans to plead for a family to love them till they die? 

Colour didn't matter there. 

Better perhaps for black mothers to abort their children rather than be adopted by a loving white family?

Liberals are the most racist people on the planet. They are the least colour-blind humans that exist.

This revolting Harris-Perry creature is a disgusting, vile, racist wench.

Good Lord.


Nolte: Why GLAAD Lost World War Duck

Heh. I just made that up.

World War Duck. 


"GLAAD's m.o. has been the same for years: Find an offender, publicly terrorize and threaten the offender and their employer into an apology, place said offender into a re-education camp, release hostage video of the offender confessing his crimes and promising to never do it again."

"The Robertson family wasn't going to back down, and their audience of over ten million was behind them 100%. It was an easy stand to take as well, because we all knew Robertson had done absolutely nothing  wrong."

Five Signs of Hope For Europe? Ugh-Maybe...Slim Pickings.

Bruce Bawer throws the jihad-weary a few crumbs.

The Prince Charles thing seems the most interesting to me.

Super Double Plus Awesome Instapundit: Zero Tolerance Stupidity At School

Seriously, America.

I love you but you have to raze the public school system to the ground and start again.

Or better yet-don't. Homeschooling, private schools or charter schools. Seems to me those are the only sane options.

Professor Glenn Reynolds explains this all verrrrrry slooooowly: 

I can't pick my favourite part. You must read THE WHOLE THING.

Lynching Free Speech

Really good one again from Daniel Greenfield: 

"The morality mob is attracted to pettiness. It rarely takes on big things because it knows its own weakness. A morality mob is a bully without the courage and it needs easy targets that it knows it can hurt."

Littlest Hero in America Saves Grandpa at Christmas

And Grandpa looks like Santa-like totally!!

What a wonderful story.

Sherri Mandell: I'm Glad My Son's Murderers Have Not Been Found

I was going to present without comment, but really-what does it say about Israel that a bereaved mother is practically begging the Israeli government NOT to find her son's killers. 


Feminism is a Crock Nowadays

Via Instapundit:

Why Lis Smith Loses the Ladies

"Many men saw the liberalization of divorce laws, the opening of opportunities for women in education and the workplace and the changes in women’s legal and financial standing in a marriage as positive developments. Most men didn’t want their daughters or sisters to be subject to the whims of dirtbags like Eliot Spitzer if they happened to have been so unlucky as to have married him."

"There was a time when a woman who was married to a man cavorting with prostitutes or engaging in otherwise embarrassing dalliances would have little choice but to stand by her man and say nothing. What other options did she have? But today, no woman, especially no Ivy League-educated woman with a good job, would be forced to sacrifice her dignity for the sake of her ­security."

"Which is why, by the way, it’s so puzzling to see women of a certain age still rallying around Hillary Clinton. If you’re Hillary or Huma Abedin or Lis Smith and you think that getting in with a slime-bucket is a good idea for your own life trajectory, well be our guest. But you could have accomplished that without ­feminism."

(Not so puzzling actually, but perhaps that was a literary device.)

I think it's that for leftist women, leftism trumps EVERYTHING. So, as long as the scumbag they are married to is a lefty/Democrat, anything goes, stand by your man, etc...

My Favourite Story of 2013: BatKid

Agree with the SF Chronicle that it was the best story of the year.

Love the BatKid and wish him many, many years of good health.

"On one glorious November day, San Francisco dropped pretense and progressive piousness and came together to fulfill the fantasy of 5-year-old leukemia patient Miles Scott, who wanted to be a superhero. It's a day even the most jaded of journalists will not soon forget, and not just because the assembled masses were lunging for copies of newspapers with the all-caps headline, "BATKID SAVES CITY."

"San Francisco knows social media, it knows big-event logistics, it knows how to do street theater and, perhaps most of all, it knows humanity. All came into play on a day that was supposed to be for Miles, but in the end was uplifting for all of us..."

Nothing to See Here: State Dept. Whistleblower Has Personal E-Mail Account Hacked and Deleted

Four years of personal correspondence deleted, along with legal strategy.

Probably totally random-nothing to worry about.

The UK Is Totally Screwed: England on Its Way to Being An Islamic Nation

This is the most accurate and depressing survey of the Islamization of Britain that I have read. 

It includes quite a number of stories that I have posted here throughout the year.

But seeing them all together creates quite a depressing picture.

I'm pessimistic about Britain because the people don't seem to be interested or willing, or capable of fighting back.

And I'm not sure that the demographic battle can be won at this stage.

Disgrace: New York Times Scrubs Benghazi Narrative on Behalf of White House

Pointing fingers once again at that stupid video.

What a disgusting mess and lack of respect for the Americans that were savagely murdered that night while serving their country. 

Absolutely sickening.

Pregnant Nurse Fired After Refusing Flu Shot

I'm with the nurse. 

Believe me, you will see more pressure on individuals to conform, and force substances into their body with ObamaCare.

The integrity of the human body means nothing to belligerent social engineers.

My family has taken the flu shot exactly one time, and that was because I fell prey to the hysteria surrounding the H1N1 flu and the (later proven to be a myth) idea that children with special needs were more vulnerable. That was what was being circulated by various health "authorities".

It turned out that the children who did catch the flu and died had pre-existing cardiac and other medical issues that complicated their flu infections.

We're never getting the flu shot again.

Marc Chagall: Between Paris and Vitebsk

Very nice piece about Chagall and his Judaism. 

Worth your time, as Chagall of course, always is.

Forced Marriages of Women From No Particular Religion A Problem in Ontario

Apparently, this happens in ALL cultures. 

Coercing Conformity: A Spirited Defence of Free Speech and Mark Steyn by Andrew McCarthy

A fantastic piece. 

"There are no Marquess of Queensbury Rules for confronting such a threat, since a fair fight is not what the mob has in mind. The threat and the aggressors making it need to be exposed, debated, mocked, and otherwise discredited whenever the opportunities present themselves. Nothing else will do, for the mob is immune to peer pressure and it has no shame."

Liberalism is Mental Illness

Professors push to rename dorms at American universities to "Native" names. 

Inspiration: Michelle and Jesse Malkin "They Did Build That-Twice"

Great interview with the Malkins and their two incredibly successful on-line start-ups/business ventures.

Really inspirational. 

Food for Thought: Why Jesus Was A Zionist

Interesting piece from the American Thinker.

Social Workers Taking Away Fat Children From Parents in the UK

This is the ultimate expression of the nanny state. 

Now it's fat kids.

Next it could be bad jokes, bad hairstyles or bad decorating.

You'll see.

Nanny bastards.

The Five Most Endangered Jewish Foods in NY

OK. This list is kind of funny.

I noticed that they put REAL bagels on the list. I'll explain why.

*goy alert*

Bagels are not buns. It has to be boiled and then baked to be a REAL bagel.

And it's pronounced bay-gel. Long "a". And the second syllable is more like how you pronounce "bull" but with a "g".


It's not a "bah-gel". 

I guess you could call it a "bah-gel" if you eat it with "Smoked Salmon" or Liver Pate.

But if you eat your bagel with lox and a bit of shmear, or chopped liver, then it's baaayyyygul.

Now, greben-OY TO THE VEY. 

My late Zaidy used to make greben. It's fried chicken fat. You got that? Fried chicken fat. Polish Jewish "delicacy". Gah!

I can't say I'm sorry to see that one on the endangered list.

A CAIR Survey on "Islamophobia" Goes Horribly Wrong


Camille Paglia: A Feminist Defense of Masculine Virtue

Very good interview, but especially good on how primary school screws up boys and the lack of male role models for boys.

"Ms. Paglia argues that the softening of modern American society begins as early as kindergarten."

"Primary-school education is a crock, basically. It's oppressive to anyone with physical energy, especially guys," she says, pointing to the most obvious example: the way many schools have cut recess.

"They're making a toxic environment for boys. Primary education does everything in its power to turn boys into neuters."

Where are the men?

"Politically correct, inadequate education, along with the decline of America's brawny industrial base, leaves many men with "no models of manhood," she says."

"Masculinity is just becoming something that is imitated from the movies. There's nothing left. There's no room for anything manly right now." 

"The only place you can hear what men really feel these days, she claims, is on sports radio. No surprise, she is an avid listener."

"The energy and enthusiasm "inspires me as a writer," she says, adding: "If we had to go to war," the callers "are the men that would save the nation."

The Glories of Socialized Medicine: British Tummy Tuck Edition

Welcome to socialized medicine.

Where people can die waiting for procedures, and on wait lists, but tummy tucks are covered. 

You know, the money would have been better spent on dental care.

Despicable: Israel Treats Jewish Blood as "Gesture"

Absolutely insane.

These are the murderers and this is what they did.

Egypt Calls Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Organization-Is Obama Still Rooting For Them?

Would be interesting to know.

Mazel To Hubby and Me-20 Years!

So, tomorrow is our 20th anniversary which is pretty neat.

We've gone through some pretty rough stuff, but we keep rolling on.

We have great kids, usually laugh at the same jokes, like mostly the same food, mostly agree on politics and enjoy each other's company.

We don't like the same music and there are lots of things that we will never see eye to eye upon. Like EVER, EVER EVER.

(When I say NEVER, I mean never, ever EVAH EVAH. But that's OK.)

But for the most part, we have a very good life together with Judaism and belief in G-d as our first principle. Family first.

Our wedding was a real blast. It was the Jewish equivalent of "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" just with Ashkenazi Canadians of Polish descent and Persian Jews with all their Sephardi and Mizrachi friends in Jerusalem. Seriously craaaaazy stuff.

(People STILL talk about it.)

It's all good.

A very good life.

Well Said: Robertson, Gramsci and Tolerance

A very good summary of what is happening on planet "Celebrate Diversity" (just not diversity of opinion). 

The end is a real kicker:

"Ultimately, they don't need us to agree with them. All they need is our silence, and they should be denied that satisfaction."

That is exactly it. That is why you have to SAY SOMETHING. You have to DO SOMETHING. 

Do what you can, not what you can't.

Israel (Finally) Gets Organized About the French Jewish Exodus

This is good. 

A little late, but good.

France is emptying itself of its Jews-again.

I don't think it will recover economically or culturally from the current, and likely final Jewish exodus.

Daniel Greenfield: The Left is Too Smart to Fail

I agree with Kate at SDA, this is all too good to excerpt. 

It is a MUST, MUST read.

Smart Jew that Sultan Knish fellow.

Really smart.

Cool: New Genetic Study Shows Jews Linked Genetically To the Levant (Duh)


What would we do without it?

Reminds me of when I freaked out a priest last year in Rome, on our way to Israel.

And when I say freaked out-I mean like GLAZED EYES, MOUTH DROPS OPEN!!!

We needed directions, and asked a random priest if he spoke English and could direct us to the Vatican.

(Don't these jokes just write themselves? "So a family of five Jews walks into Rome and ask for directions to the Vatican...")

He said "Sure, I can help you and my name is Trevor, I'm from Texas".

Look-it's a whole other story, but basically he was the nicest guy and I told him that my husband also hailed from a line of priests-the Cohanim were the priests of the Temple.

He kind of looked at me funny. I started walking him through the genetics of the priestly class-it runs from father to son (unlike being Jewish which is mother to child) and told him of the studies that had been made recently with saliva tests from self-identified priests of Ashkenazi and Sephardi/Mizrachi descent. I asked him if he had heard of Moses and Aaron the priests. I said-those were the original priests, so the Cohanim today are their descendants.

I swear it looked for a minute that he was going to have a heart attack.

Anyway, he was lovely-he insisted on giving us tickets to get on public transport, in exchange only for us to bless him in Jerusalem.

My husband still thinks he took a shine to me but I explained that girls are not his thing, and he's married to the Church blah blah. And he wasn't really my type-I mean, I don't usually go for the Roman Catholic priest "type". I tend to like the swarthy, Israeli type but there are exceptions of course....


Oh, and he also promised to re-read the Old Testament.

I think it was probably a life-changing moment for him, to reconnect with the Jewish roots of Christianity.

Very cool.

Christmas Miracles: Three Transplants in One Family


What an amazing blessing.

Good News: Most American Families Still Routinely Dine Together

The family dinner is an essential component of family life. 

And I walk the walk on that.

Even if the kids have nothing in particular to report, dinner remains a family activity, including setting the table, prep work, the cooking and the clean up. It is a real blessing.

I don't consider it a throw back, I consider it a real gift.

I remember seeing a cartoon a while back with a harassed Mom saying "Why-why do the need dinner EVERY NIGHT???"

So funny and so true. Being a parent is a tough gig, but it's the best ever.

Making food for your family is a wonderful thing.

Watching your kids enjoy things that you have made is just a giant, internal bubble of joy.

I used to joke about Jewish grandparents and parents and their "esss, esss" schtick (eat, eat in Yiddish), but now I get it.

My Idiot People: "We Were in A Craze to See Blood" Edition

Israel, the Jews-should NOT be helping anyone from Gaza. 

This is the payback.

No eye operations, no heart surgery for kids-nothing. Let them help themselves.

They will not like us EVEN if we are "nice" to them, you fools. 

Stop releasing terrorists. 

These people love Jewish blood.

Why are we rewarding that?

Why should anyone think a Jewish is worth anything if we, the Jews, release our murderers?

Read these words:

"We were in a craze to see blood."

That is who we are dealing with. Blood thirsty barbarians.

Hey liberal Jews-how about bookmarking that article?

(I know fat chance to ask anything of idiots such as leftist Jews...)

"We were in a crazy to see blood."

 This is a good response.

Londanistan: Half of London GPs Have Treated Sexually Mutilated Women

Female Genital Mutilation, that quaint cultural tradition...

Think about it-over half of the General Practitioners in London have seen a patient whose genitals have been mutilated in the same of chastity, "honour" and tradition.

The bigger question is-what have they done about it?

Taki: A Safe Christmas For Christians in Biblical Lands

I know the subject matter is serious, but this article made me laugh out loud. 

There is one place amongst the biblical lands where the Christian community is growing. 


Christmas Interview With Sarah Palin-Really Nice

I love Sarah Palin. 

G-d bless her and her family. No matter how shrill her critics are, she stays calm and collected and articulates the (truly) conservative position on matters with pride and without hesitation.

Read the whole interview. I have to point out my favourite part.

I thought this was a remarkable insight:

"LOPEZ: When you write that “there is no ultimate peace apart from Christ, and it is Christ who empowers every act of ‘goodwill toward men’ in our otherwise fallen hearts,” what does this mean to you, practically speaking?"

"PALIN: It means that I can take the kids to the soup kitchen over Christmas and not leave with a puffed-up sense of pride because we “did the right thing.” Rather, I identify more with people in need because I’m so desperately in need of Christ in my own life."

Really that is a devastatingly sharp assessment of human nature and hubris.

Outstanding, and something to remember when we "do the right thing".

Doing the right thing is done solely for the purpose of doing right by G-d.

Props to Beyonce, Fulfill's Cancer Striken Child's Dying Wish-UPDATED

As much as I loathe her idol worship of President Obama, I have a soft spot for anyone who makes a sick, disabled or dying child's life better. 

This was very classy and sweet and she obviously has a big heart.


This is incredible as well.

Amazing: A Priest's Battle-Christmas in the IDF

Really inspirational.

G-d bless him.

"Father Nadaf is a man of honor, unlike the Arab members of Knesset who curry favor with people like Gaddafi and Assad and wrap themselves in Palestinian flags while enjoying a Zionist salary, Zionist social security, Zionist health care and more."

"Jewish soldiers serve in the armies of Christian countries, and there is no reason why Christian soldiers should not serve in the army of a Jewish country. They are part and parcel of the complex mosaic that is Israel, a small, select group that it is our duty to promote. Father Nadaf chose Israel, and we should embrace him, along with his community."

Merry Christmas to My Awesome Christian Friends - UPDATED With Prager

Hey there!

Merry Christmas to all my Christian friends and readers around the world. I hope it is a wonderful evening and holiday day for you all.

We're just digging out from the ice storm that hit Toronto. Our power went down Saturday night and didn't come on under Sunday evening. The entire family is at home and we're trying to keep busy and cool and not drive each other crazy. Not everyone has power yet in Toronto and the suburbs.

Lots of family stuff going on here but I'm going to try to post some links now so stay tuned.

Wishing all of my wonderful, Christian friends much joy of the season.

The Real Reason Duck Dynasty Threatens the Left

Well, actually there are two reasons.

The first is because they refuse to cower and shut up. They refuse to Celebrate (Sexual) Diversity.

The second is this: 

"The threat of the Robertsons isn’t in Phil’s politically incorrect comments. The threat is that this family has figured out how right-wing politics and Evangelical Christianity can influence pop culture without being the punch line or the bad guy. While the left has spent decades making conservatives look like idiots and Christians look like bigots, Duck Dynasty reminds average Americans that these views are mainstream. "

"The left is alerted but will those on the right take advantage of what the Robertsons have created?"

Don't say you didn't know.

How To Lose Your Coveted Conservative Journalism Job in One Easy Step

You, too can lose your job at a prestigious conservative publication in one easy step!

It's very simple to do.

All you have to do is take your displaced delusion of intellectual grandeur, mix in several completely gratuitous public insults directed to Mark Steyn in same publication that he writes in and that you edit and VOILA, you will be almost assured to be promptly scanning the ever-thinning conservative "help wanted" ads!

So easy to get in trouble-so very hard to avoid.

As a public service, I am elucidating the steps that Jason Lee Steorts (who is this guy anyway??) has gone though. It is a case study in how to get bounced from your pretty freaking awesome conservative gig.

1. First read the master, Mark Steyn, witnessing him totally ON FIRE about free speech. This is one of the topics that the Prophet Steyn, PBUH, absolutely and totally and utterly OWNS. Kapish? If you read him in print on this, hear him on the radio, watch him testify in various Houses of Parliament, or just sit around over drinks with him, you will understand that nobody more passionately articulates the case for free speech (and unfortunately, we do need to constantly make a case for it in this day and age) than Mark Steyn.

2. Decide that after reading your columnist, that you would like to take a swipe at him for some unknown (read: career suicide) mission. Call it "less than illuminating". Use words like "puerile" that will definitely piss him off. Say that you are "disappointed" in him even though seriously-who the hell are you?  Then, insinuate that he is boorish, and has no manners (And FOR REALSIES: OMG-having met the man in person, I can personally guarantee that Mr. Steyn's manners are so wonderful and rare and ever so polished, and simply from another era-he is courteous, polite, and generously listens to everyone around him and remembers personal details about everyone he speaks to or speaks about). Then double down on your suicidal remarks!

3. Add in one publisher who is befuddled by grotesque move by editor and STIR.

4. Watch as general, conservative public views and comments on the public spectacle of suicide by insane insult journalism over-reach.

And voila!

You will quickly be polishing off your LinkedIn page.

When this first happened, the evil seeeeeeekrit Jew Kathy Draidle e-mailed me the post by Mr. Steorts and I wrote back saying "Probably his last post at The Corner".

Mark Steyn rightly does not like being insulted publicly, in his own home publication by someone who is clearly out of his intellectual league.

(If you think I'm kidding, check and see when his last column for Maclean's Magazine was written. You may notice a pattern. Again, I'm not very bright, but I do very well in pattern recognition-although I do prefer solid colours of course, patters are SO DISTRACTING and can make you look sort of dated and eccentric, but I digress...)

As for Mr. Steorts claim that he would go to the barricades with Mr. Steyn in the free speech war-well, with friends like that...

There are plenty of people who "get" the free speech issue.

Lots of us, in fact.

Lots of us looking for nice, conservative writing and editing and journalism gigs-most having to turn to America where the market is bigger and freer (or it used to be, Obama has screwed things up quite nicely).

I know I'm just a Jewish mother from suburban Toronto, and I'm not very bright, but my advice would be for "conservative" publications to really evaluate themselves, their editors and their columnists on the free speech divide.

Without freedom of speech, there are no other freedoms. 

As Mark Steyn has always pointed out, it's not a left-right issue, it's a free-unfree issue.

Anyone who doesn't understand that point, and it's not so complicated, does not deserve a platform in an influential "conservative" publication.

Steyns' piece was outstanding, it's a topic that ignites his passion and he has a distinct comic and intellectual mastery of it. Free speech is just his thing. 

That concludes today's lecture on "Losing Your Conservative Job 101" at Rosen's School of Hard Knocks and Bitter Reality.

Wow: Service Dog Stays With 7 Year Old Girl During Surgery-Helps Doctors Detect Allergic Reactions

Absolutely amazing. 

Service dogs rock.

OMG: GLAAD Still Doesn't Get It

Most dense "media expert" ever? 

And this, I'm absolutely dying:

"We believe the next step is to use this as an opportunity for Phil to sit down with gay families in Louisiana and learn about their lives and the values they share,” the spokesman said."
And still not satisfied with their pound of duck-hunting, white, Christian, heterosexual flesh, the hunt continues:
"The organization is also currently researching companies who use Robertson as a spokesperson."
It is never possible for these types to agree to disagree. There will be no "live and let live". 
These types of charming folks on the left want to DESTROY people who disagree with them. 
Nothing short of financial, psychological, professional and emotional destruction is satisfactory. 

Mark Steyn: Heterosexual Show Tunes Enthusiast (Who Has Nonetheless Sampled Leonard Bernstein's Tongue) On "The Age of Intolerance"

Oh Mah Gawd this is goooood stuff. 

First on what is now verboten humour: 
"Bob Hope, touring the world in the year or so after the passage of the 1975 Consenting Adult Sex Bill: I’ve just flown in from California, where they’ve made homosexuality legal. I thought I’d get out before they make it compulsory.”

Then Steyn: 

"But no matter how nice you are, it’s never enough....It is not enough to have gay marriage for gays. Everything must be gayed. There must be Five-Year Gay Plans for American bakeries, and the Christian church, and reality TV. There must be shock brigades of gay duck-hunters honking out the party line deep in the backwoods of the proletariat."

Can We Stop Calling Them "Public Servants"? We Are Their Slaves

NJ "Public Servant" lands sixth "public service" gig to make $300K per year. 

I think we need a better term for the people who work FOR US in the government.

I myself had to tangle with my government betters this week for a matter relating to my disabled son. Why do we need to feel victorious when it is our money that is being discussed, and the staff people assigned to the various "files" and "cases" and "clients" are employed by we the people?

We need a whole new vocabulary for this kind of thing.

I'm open to suggestions.

"The London School of Economics has apologised to two students who were forced to cover up T-shirts with images of Jesus and the Prophet Mohammed on."

"Professor Paul Kelly admitted he got the ‘judgment wrong’ after the pair were told by student union officers that displaying the images may constitute religious harassment."

"Chris Moos and Abhishek Phadnis were threatened with being thrown out of the university’s Freshers Fair if they didn’t cover up the images, as they manned an Atheist Secularist and Humanist Society stall at the event."

"Prof Kelly, pro-director at LSE, told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme: “It was a difficult judgment and I quite accept I called it wrong.”

"The T-shirts featured a picture of Mohammed prohibited under Islamic law."

The result-probably the only time in my life that I agree with Richard Dawkins:

"At the time Richard Dawkins, a high profile atheist, branded LSE student union officers “sanctimonious little prigs” over the incident."

Sweden May Ban Circumcision

You know, I actually hope that they do. 

There are only about 12 Jews living their delusional "Jewish life" in Sweden anyway. There is no Jewish future in Sweden.

There are other populations in Sweden that might have a problem with this.

Again, instead of banning practices of immigrants that you don't want, why not think of just not inviting certain groups of immigrants to your country? Why try to deprogram people, talk them out of, "re-educate" them, or legislate them out of their cultural practices?

Well Said, Roger L. Simon: The PC Lynching of Phil Robertson + Michelle Malkin on the Tolerance Mob

Very well said. 

Fortunately, the Robertson family probably doesn't give a crap about this VILDE CHAYA reaction to his comments. And they have enough money to tell A & E to stick it.

My only quibble with this otherwise finely written piece is that Simon identifies this PC hysteria as fascistic, which of course it is.

So, this part is wishful thinking:

"And if you dislike what Robertson is saying, why not engage him? You might even convert him. After all, the reality star was not casting personal aspersions toward gays or trashing individuals by name in the manner of Martin Bashir or Ed Schultz. He was being interviewed by GQ who sought his opinions, hopefully controversial ones, one would imagine, which he delivered in his folksy Bayou style."

The frothing, angry leftist masses are not interested in having a conversation, or a dialogue. It's their way or the highway. 

More from Michelle Malkin on the Tolerance Mob. 

In the name of tolerance, we shall censor you and shove our views down your throat.

"The Only Commonality Was That All the Victims Were Jewish"-Kids Arrested in Alleged "Knockout" Attacks


The only commonality was that the victims were Jewish? 

I suspect that there is a commonality about the perpetrators but why isn't that written anywhere in the article.

Do you see any commonality in the photo?

"The only commonality is that basically all the victims were Jewish."

"Basically" they were all Jews.

That's it. NEVERMIND. Go home, forget about it.

UK, Euphemism Capital of the World-Police Ignored Girls Being Abused By "Asians" From "Council Estates"

Have you decoded that yet? 

Basically it means that girls were abused sexually, but ignored because police didn't want to get into a politically correct brouhaha about the common denominator of the perpetrators.

But have no fear-yet another massive, government report will be shelved and collect dust as a result of this inquiry.

France is on this path.

I Swear Douglas Murray Has A Pair of the Biggest Stones in Europe

"Far from having nothing to do with Islam, the killing of Lee Rigby had everything to do with Islam – the worst possible version of Islam, certainly, but a version of Islam nonetheless. And although it may not be the version that most Muslims worldwide follow, let alone practise, it is one with a considerable and bloody presence – across the Indian sub-continent, the Middle East, North Africa and now in Europe."

Love Ruth Wisse-Smart Jew, Tears Lefty Jewish Authors A New One, Must Read

OMG I am in love with this entire article. 

Professor Ruth Wisse absolutely skewers the lefty, squishy, yucky, 'ooooh we are so terrible' Jews who have written a bunch of books lately.

She deliciously writes of one:

"A further casualty of this book is journalism’s commitment to truth."


"Since war remains, alas, the universal means of securing land when a claim is challenged, the Jews of Israel have had to defend their land more often than any other contemporary people. In peace and in war, Jewish sovereignty has required and still requires of them greater qualities of mind and spirit than those that maintained their ancestors for centuries in other people’s lands. If it took tremendous courage to reclaim the Jewish homeland, at least equal courage is required to sustain and protect it among people who are currently less politically mature than they."

"One can only hope that, in that monumental task, Israelis will manifest in their written and spoken words the same moral confidence that as soldiers they have shown in battle—and that those writing specifically in English will remember that, whether they wish to acknowledge it or not, prominent among their present-day assailants are Western liberal elites."

Duck Dynasty versus "Pajama Boy", I'm Sticking With the Robertsons.

This is absolutely what it's about. 

This Jew is rooting for Team Robertson.

I bet millions of American men are nodding their heads in agreement, thinking to themsleves "thank you, Phil for saying it", and wondering what the fuss is all about.

He prefers vaginas-stop the presses! 

Heterosexual, white, Christian male Celebrates Vaginas!

He should get a medal. 

You know what I'm thankful for this morning?

That the Robertsons have enough money to tell A&E to shove it and I hope they do!

American Police State: Woman Files Suit Against Police For Illegal Body Cavity Search

For the pleasure of having her bowel movement observed by these crack (heh) American law enforcement officials, she was also billed $5000 by the hosptial.

How comforting to know that hospitals are complicit in this barbarity in America.

Here is what is alleged. 

"Agents quickly stripped searched her and did cavity searches but found no evidence of drugs, court documents said. But the woman was transported in handcuffs to the University Medical Center of El Paso, the lawsuit said, where doctors subjected her to an observed bowel movement, a CT scan and other exams without a warrant."

“What is truly frightening about this incident is that it could have happened to anyone,” said ACLU-NM Legal Director Laura Schauer Ives.

“The failed drug war and militarized border region have created an environment in which law enforcement officials increasingly inflict extreme and illegal searches on innocent Americans.”

If it can happen to anyone, it will.

If it can happen to anyone-it will happen to EVERYONE.

Here's a worrying story out of New York.

Very Interesting: The Case That Could Topple ObamaCare?

Seriously interesting article here and kudos to the law prof who spotted the issue:

"It all started in 2011, when Jonathan H. Adler, a conservative law professor at Case Western Reserve University in Ohio, shot an email to his friend Michael Cannon, a health policy expert at the libertarian Cato Institute in Washington, D.C. Adler thought he had spotted an error in Obamacare that could unravel a significant portion of the law."

"At issue are the federal subsidies for individuals buying insurance in their state’s health care exchanges. The law stipulates that those subsidies should be allotted for plans purchased “through an Exchange established by the State under Section 1311” (italics added), a reference to the section of the law that establishes state-run exchanges."

"Adler wondered: Did the law provide subsidies for only state-run exchanges and not federal ones? The law requires that the federal government step in to create an exchange when a state declines to do so. But does it fail to give subsidies to the residents of those states?

"It may seem like a small problem, but if true, it spells disaster for the Affordable Care Act."

Israel's "Rising" Star Contest, Singing Haredi Brothers Continue to Delight

"No Tolerance" = No Brains, No Common Sense and Is Child Abuse

Behold: the asinine stupidity of American "educators"-your moral, intellectual and finger artillery superiors. 

A 5 year old boy from South Carolina was suspended FROM KINDERGARTEN for making a gun gesture with his finger.

I have a finger gesture for that "educator". 

This is child abuse.

Parents who do not show up to riot at the school are part of the problem.

Good on this Dad for taking on the "educator" head on.

On Healthcare, ObamaCare and Canada Should Take a Lesson From Israel

I agree completely. 

Israel has a very good mix of a publicly funded system, with supplemental and private insurance plans available for those who can afford them.

In Canada, one can get an MRI scan for a pet by paying for it. You can have one today or tomorrow.

Humans in Canada are not allowed, by law, to do the same thing.


Nobody in Canada ever died waiting to get a cavity filled or for a root canal.

For some reason, the government of Canada thinks that dental work can be trusted to the common sense and free market of dentists and consumers, but not health care.

A socialist medical system means that bureaucrats, who are mostly likely not smarter than you, own your body and your family's bodies.

Best Article on Israel/Jews Today: Barry Rubin-Lying About Israel

This is fantastic. 

Well worth your time.

He gets right to the point:

"Once again, the problem with the Arab-Israeli conflict is not accidental; it is the natural result of two things:
  1. The Arab-Islamic general refusal to recognize Israel ever.
  2. The Arab-Islamic inability to destroy Israel.
Get it?"

Exactly! I get it! OH OH! Pick me!! Pick me, Mistah Kotttttah! 

(Dating myself perhaps with that Welcome Back, Kotter joke but oh well....)

Antisemitism always says more about the Jew-hater than it does about the Jew.

News You Can Use: GQ Magazine-Guys, Give Up The Porn Habit

Pretty gosh darned good advice here. 

"So there it is men. While the evidence may not be scientifically thorough, there's certainly enough to suggest that porn has a negative impact on our lives.

The Jews Who Know Exactly What Iran Is Saying-Amazing Article.

I loved every bit of this article. 

Jews from Arab countries seriously rock.

This is another really cool thing about Jews. We come from everywhere, look like everyone and speak every language.

We see the Jew-haters. We understand them. They cannot hide from the IDF.

Terrific article!

Very inspirational.

I thought this part was especially cool:

"His job at the outset, he said, keeping his description deliberately vague, “was translating the intelligence data of what, we’ll say, was attainable.”

"In those days the Persian desk at Military Intelligence was both smaller than today and mostly staffed by what the IDF calls lahagistim – those that knew the lahag, or dialect, either as a mother tongue or from relatives around the house. M. was sent to officers’ school, after repeated requests, and was put in charge of a platoon of soldiers that translated raw intelligence."

"He remained in similar posts until 2004-5, at which time the army “needed to step up” its Persian instruction, he said. M. was charged with putting together Military Intelligence’s Persian-language instructional manual and helped shape all Persian instruction in the intelligence corps. 

Within seven months we can take someone from nothing and make them qualified,” he said.

Excellent Read: Kay S. Hymowitz on "Boy Trouble", UPDATED-Sons of Divorce, School Shooters

The whole article is well done, but this jumped out at me.

"...why do boys in single-mother families have a harder time of it than their sisters? If you were to ask the average person on the street, he would probably give some variation of the role-model theory: boys need fathers because that’s who teaches them how to be men. The theory makes intuitive sense. Human beings naturally divide the universe into male and female—it’s one of the earliest things that children notice about the world around them."

 (Sort of "duh", but the article is worth reading.)

And yet, liberals persist in seeing things solely through an economic/Marxist vantage point-wave money at the problem at it will just go away:

"Liberals often assume that these kinds of social problems result from our stingy support system for single mothers and their children. Provide more maternity leave, quality day care, and health care, goes the thinking, and a lot of the disadvantages of single-parent homes would vanish. But the link between criminality and fatherlessness holds even in countries with lavish social-welfare systems."

Facts are terribly nasty and inconvenient things.

You are entitled to your own opinion, but not your own facts. 


Read this: Sons of Divorce, School Shooters

"...one common and largely unremarked thread tying together most of the school shooters that have struck the nation in the last year is that they came from homes marked by divorce or an absent father."

Dateline New Zealand: Teen Forced to Wear Burqa to Hide Abuse and Injuries

But don't worry: 

"Officers learned about the abuse in early November. The girl was removed from her home by Child, Youth and Family and placed in "secure care" with another Muslim family. No one has yet been charged, although police say arrests are likely."

The UK Is Screwed and David Cameron Has No Balls

Cameron is said to be "reviewing' university gender apartheid on British campuses after a massive public backlash to the practice.


Sorry, but this kind of thing cannot be accommodated. When you try to make nice with heinous practices, you become a collaborator, and in this case-an amateur, boorish, terrified and supine sharia arbitrator.

It's normal people versus the idiot, "accommodating" dhimmi elites: 


"Chris Moos, the secretary of London School of Economics’ secular society, which has been opposing the UUK guidelines, said he had yet to be convinced that latest moves would lead to a firm ban on segregation."

"Mr Moos, a PhD student, said: “Surely a discriminatory guideline should be withdrawn entirely?
We should never accept a policy that would institutionalise and allow religious, national or racial segregation."

“It is outrageous that the EHRC are now suggesting that a policy that would allow for gender segregation merely needs ‘clarification’ and greater ‘consistency’. It really looks like the EHRC are hedging their bets.”

"The official guidance set out how sex segregation could be acceptable as long as men and women were seated side by side rather than with women at the back. It also said that any event where some segregation took place for religious reasons should also provide a separate, non-segregated area."

How insane is this? A normal person says-hey, this is really unacceptable in any form.

But officialdom says bend and twist and take your proper supine position.

This is the battle my friends and these are the battle fields.

This is where lines are drawn and you have to pick sides. Where do you stand?

This is it in a nutshell: regular people versus the elites and their rag-tag coalition of regressive, offensive, non-Western and anti-democratic policies.

Camille Paglia Defends Men: "If Men Are Obsolete, Then Women Will Soon Be Extinct."

This is a review of a recent "debate" that was held here in Toronto.

(The Munk Debates, too rich for my blood.)


"A peevish, grudging rancor against men has been one of the most unpalatable and unjust features of second- and third-wave feminism.  Men’s faults, failings and foibles have been seized on and magnified into gruesome bills of indictment.  Ideologue professors at our leading universities indoctrinate impressionable undergraduates with carelessly fact-free theories alleging that gender is an arbitrary, oppressive fiction with no basis in biology"

"History must be seen clearly and fairly: obstructive traditions arose not from men’s hatred or enslavement of women but from the natural division of labor that had developed over thousands of years during the agrarian period and that once immensely benefited and protected women, permitting them to remain at the hearth to care for helpless infants and children.  Over the past century, it was labor-saving appliances, invented by men and spread by capitalism, that liberated women from daily drudgery."

"But how heartening, as one watches the viral video of Obama droning on while a mere foot and a half away Mr. Jantjie rubs his belly and tickles his ear, to think that the White House’s usual money-no-object security operation went to the trouble of flying in Air Force One, plus the “decoy” Air Force One, plus support aircraft, plus the 120-vehicle motorcade or whatever it’s up to by now, plus a bazillion Secret Service agents with reflector shades and telephone wire dangling from their ears, to shepherd POTUS into the secured venue and then stand him onstage next to an $85-a-day violent schizophrenic."


"How poignant that, on a day to celebrate the post-racial South Africa, the handsome young black man should have to be forcibly segregated from the cool Aryan blonde. For all the progress, as Obama himself pointed out, “our work is not yet done.”"

Read the whole thing. I've read it several times and I'm still laughing.

Mary and Joseph Forced To Wear Helmets in British Nativity Parade

I read this book about a guy who had a baby and he was so scared of every goddamned thing that his wife started just saying "HELMET! HELLLLLLMETTTTT. HELLLLLMET", every time he was freaking out about safety and little junior.

Those who know me know I am a "let them eat dirt" kind of mom. I mean it.

I remember sitting in the back of the station wagon without seat belts, maybe half a dozen of us rug rats at a time making HONK US signs. What did we NOT do in the car while parents were driving??

I walked to school.

We ate peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. We're still alive.

So, where in the New Testament does it talk about Mary and Joseph and little baby Jesus wearing helmets?




We have an entire generation of HELMET HEADS.

Sunday Sermon From Jew Blogger Via Catholic Reader: "Breakfast, Lunch and Hugs"

I posted about this glorious young man a few months ago, but it's a keeper and a reader reminded me of him by sending me this article with the You Tube clip.

Imagine the gift of serving breakfast, lunch and hugs every day and making sad people happy.

It came with Christmas greetings, which I returned of course because I'm not one of those sucky, crab apples who gets offended about everything-and especially things that make Christians happy.

Another Reason to Hate France: French Town Honours Murderer of American and Israeli Diplomats


Absolutely disgusting.

"A majority of aldermen in the city council of Bagnolet east of the French capital voted on Wednesday to make the Lebanese citizen Georges Ibrahim Abdallah an honorary resident, calling him a “communist activist” and “political prisoner” who “belongs to the resistance movement of Lebanon, his country,” French media reported Friday."

Obama The Oblivious

Excellent tearing-of-new-one column by Charles Krauthammer. 

Really well said:

"Obama’s discovery that government bureaucracies don’t do things very well creates a breathtaking disconnect between his transformative ambitions and his detachment from the job itself. How does his Olympian vision coexist with the lassitude of his actual governance, a passivity that verges on absenteeism?"

"What bridges that gap is rhetoric."

Hey Florida-Buy Your Tickets to Mark Steyn Live and Watch Him Make Out With Blonde Danish Politicians

Now there's a live show you don't want to miss!!

I've seen Mark Steyn live several times, and I highly, highly recommend it, but dammit, I don't remember that part of the show?!?! 

Did I blink and miss it?


But seriously, that was just one of the moderately arousing entertaining notions from Mark Steyn's weekly spot on the Hugh Hewitt show.

I like to read the transcripts because there are always a few piercing nuggets that inevitably turn into fabulous columns, and I think that some of Steyn's best ideas flow really freely in radio conversation-which is why Steyn is amazing on Rush Limbaugh.

Normally, saying someone has a face for radio is sort of like talking about the girl you want to fix up, and the guy says "what does she look like" and the matchmaker says OH SHE HAS THE GREATEST PERSONALITY. It's not really a compliment. Like, really, really not.

Meaning, when they say "she has a great personality" that means HEAD FOR THE HILLS IT'S A FAT CHICK.

But I digress.

When I say Mark Steyn has a personality for radio, I mean it as a huuuuuuuge compliment.

Radio is a strange beast. You have to be comfortable talking to someone as if they are your good friend, no matter what you think about them and no matter how large the audience. I love radio, but like I say-it's a very strange beast. Radio is still cool because it makes you use your imagination. It lets you think instead of having images dictated to your brain. Radio is more cerebral than television.

(Note: this is why talk radio for liberals fails epically. It's an oxymoron, like "jumbo shrimp", like The Great Synagogue of Mecca, if you get my drift...)

From this week's appearance, these bits were particularly astute.

In my view: January may well be Death Month for the American Democratic party.

It will certainly mean death for a lot of Americans and I cannot understand why they are behaving so sheepishly about it. And frankly, I never thought I would say "gee, I'm glad I'm in Canada" when it comes to (our socialized) healthcare as opposed to the American health care system.

As per Steyn: "large numbers of people who think they’ve enrolled with Obamacare in fact have yet to cut their first check for their new insurance plans, and will be going to the pharmacy, or God forbid, the emergency room around January 5th, 6th, 7th, and discovering that in fact although they thought they were insured, they’re not insured. And shortly after that, if things go really badly, we’re going to reading about the first deaths of people who thought they were covered by Obamacare but turn out not to have insurance at all."

We're already reading stories about people with critical illnesses, or chronic illnesses or sick children with cancer who now have no medical insurance.

America yawns. 

Steyn on Uncle Jong Un in Korea being Saddamzied (HAHAHAHHAA SEE WHAT I DID THERE??):

He's talking about North Korea, but sounds sort of eerily reminiscent of America to me.

Steyn: "in these hereditary dictatorships, there’s an awful lot of bloodletting that attends the change of power in those places."

ObamaCare will result in many, many preventable American deaths. 

The American left is very fond of totalitarianism and hereditary power.

It's a bloody awful powder keg mix for a formerly great republic and beacon of freedom.

"Manifestly undemocratic, in contrast, is the way Mr. Obama’s administration — in hypocritical defiance of the principles of openness and transparency he campaigned on — has systematically tried to bypass the media by releasing a sanitized visual record of his activities through official photographs and videos, at the expense of independent journalistic access."

"The official photographs the White House hands out are but visual news releases. Taken by government employees (mostly former photojournalists), they are well composed, compelling and even intimate glimpses of presidential life. They also show the president in the best possible light, as you’d expect from an administration highly conscious of the power of the image at a time of instant sharing of photos and videos"

"By no stretch of the imagination are these images journalism. Rather, they propagate an idealized portrayal of events on Pennsylvania Avenue."
"If you take this practice to its logical conclusion, why have news conferences? Why give reporters any access to the White House? It would be easier to just have a daily statement from the president (like his recorded weekly video address) and call it a day. Repressive governments do this all the time."

Natural Republicans!

According to the so smarts of the Republicans, these folks are a natural fit!

The Christmas Spirit

I'm one of those Jews who loves Christmas.

By that I don't mean Christmas envy, or that I'm converting or anything like that.

OK, so I love Christmas music and have a little tree envy but that's really it.

I ike the spirit of Christmas, which I take to mean the goodness of mankind and by now you know I'm not one of those hopey-dopey-changey people who thinks all humans are basically good, because I don't. I think that most humans are pretty regular and often rotten.

HOWEVER, I am a people collector.

You know some people collect stamps and tea cups and all kinds of other useless crap that they can't take with 'em.

I collect people, and knowledge and anecdotes and stories and hopefully, some wisdom. And then I like to share.

I like to share my people. I like to put people together who need each other, who want to do good things for one another. Who are motivated by G-dliness, and by the love and respect that they have for the sanctity of human life.

So I want to tell you a true story.

A real human story. Pretty much in real time.

And if it inspires you, maybe you'll take that energy and do something good for someone else, because I gotta tell you-it's contagious. Goodness and good deeds are contagious. Aren't we so lucky?

So there are a bunch of people that hung out at a formerly conservative blog that nobody hangs out at anymore. The web site founder was from California.

Does the name matter? Not really.

A bunch of us became internet friends (I've met many of them in person in North America and Israel) and a bunch of us here in Toronto became real life friends. In fact, most of my closest friends today are people that I met through the internet-blogs and web sites, writers and others, etc..

Then that blog blew up and a bunch of refugees hung out at another blog-the founder of that blog is in rural Connecticut. Still a number of us kept in touch through the years. Beautiful G-d fearing people abounded.

During this time, I also became acquainted with parents and siblings all over the world who have the same rare, genetic syndrome as my son.

Well, one of these little guys from Ohio is really sick right now.

He has cancer, it's really terrifying. Thank G-d he is getting excellent care at an excellent children's hospital. He had a long surgery to remove a malignant mass, and he did really well. Bless the healers.

Mom doesn't want to leave the room, and for sure not the hospital. So, they have a guest assistance program where you can buy meals for parents who are staying with their kids. My Dad (waves-love you, Dad) bought a bunch of meals-at $6 a pop, in my view, they are the best most blessed and righteous meals he has purchased this year. 

Now this little guy has to have other treatments, among them radiation and chemotherapy and he's going to lose his beautiful, thick head of hair. So his mom was thinking out loud about hats on Facebook.

I put out a call on Facebook to see if any of my friends knit, to make a hat for him.

A friend from the blog world reminded me about another blog friend who is an expert sewer and knitter. It had been years, but I sent her an e-mail and she immediately said count me in. She's in Seattle.

So because of this beautiful internet, a Jewish grandfather from Toronto buys an Ohio mom a few meals to make her life easier while her child is in hospital. A blog friend from North Carolina who I have never met in person, reminds me that another blog friend in Seattle who I have never met knits and sews. And we, as friends were brought together by a G-d fearing, firebrand Jewish lady from Connecticut who I've never met in person either.

And the knitted hats for the boy with cancer are on their way to Ohio and I got to be the matchmaker, to share in these good deeds-and all I had to do was type away at my computer and put the right people together.

How lucky.

What a blessing.

I really don't have the words right now to express exactly how grateful I am to be a part of such goodness.

So I guess among the many lessons here are if you have to collect something, collect good people.

Ask for things that other people need.

Put people together.

Watch good things grow.

Be grateful, be blessed.

In the Christmas spirit (hat tip: Blazing Cat Fur) here's a little girl signing Christmas and Chanukah songs to her parents.

HEY, she would have made a much better sign language translator for the Mandela funeral.
