Goodbye Blog!

This evening at around 8:00 p.m, I finally put my feet up at the end of a very long day and once I finally had a few moments of quiet, I had a minor moment of epiphany. It occurred to me that I no longer want to maintain this blog.

I feel pretty liberated by my decision and I have a number of reasons that I'll share.

I've been running a blog for many years and I"m kind of blogged out. I spend way too much time reading stuff 'for the blog', saving articles, reading articles that people send me, and posting articles and thoughts.

Don't get me wrong, I love writing and feel compelled to write, it's not a choice-there's stuff I just have to get out of my brain and my soul and it has to flow through my keyboard to the world.

I just don't think a blog is the best vehicle for me anymore.

I have met some really amazing people through blogging, and it has been a lot of fun, but it never really took off as a lucrative venture. It was mostly a great place for me to vent my spleen and publish thoughts and pieces of writing that nobody else would publish.

Another consideration is that blog posts don't really accrue to one's professional portfolio or resume (or bank account). I hope to spend more time pitching and writing articles on more substantive topics and also on ventures that may be more lucrative and/or professionally rewarding because time is money and also our time on Earth is finite and I can't spend any more time on this blog. Like many other writers and creative types I have a list of projects and works in progresss I want to get done, and I ain't getting any younger.

One more minor consideration is that I'm pretty tired of having my ideas "liberated" by others. It's pretty easy to rip off an idea from a blogger and very hard to prove or trace. But believe me, I do see where traffic comes from-what country, what companies, what cities and I'm also very tired of feeling creeped out by federal government bureaucrats who pretty much stalk me on a daily basis. It's much harder to steal ideas from published articles (although I've also had plenty of ideas ripped off from pitches as well and that really sucks).

The other thing I worry about is that as I grow older, I have less and less patience for bullshit and belligerence and I'm less inclined to self-censor than I ever was. I don't want a blog post to be a gotcha moment for any random asshole. I have lots to say and will continue to say it but I'm pretty sick of watching the Internet Mob destroy lives. I'll always put my name to my thoughts and always urge others to do the same. The reason these disgusting mobs yield so much power, which is completely disproportionate to their numbers and even more disproportionate to their level of intelligence is because all the anonymous cowards who literally let them get away with it. So nuts to that times eleventy bazillion, million, gazillion.

I have lots of things on my to do list, but I'm getting older and I have a pretty heavy burden to deal with with my disabled child. My first priority is to my family.

I hope you have enjoyed this blog.

I certainly have enjoyed writing for you-wherever and whoever you are. For those readers I know personally through e-mail or otherwise, do stay in touch.

A special thank you to "C" in NYC who actually did send me a real, actual Hermes scarf after I drooled about them on line for so many years. I'll never forget that-thank you so much. Thanks also to everyone who sent a kind word when I shared, or perhaps overshared more personal life reflections and to the new friends that I made near and far.

Hopefully, and if I work hard enough, you'll still see my byline around town, perhaps even on different types of projects and forms of media. The harder I work, the luckier I get.

Shalom friends. See you around.

The U.K Is Dead To Me

British schools are giving out spoons to girls in danger of being married off in sh&thole countries against their will. 

This is Britain in 2018.

Absolutely disgusting.

UPDATE: Apparently this is a "Swedish" problem as well.

Near Death, Seeing Dead People May Be Kind of Chill

Chatting with the dearly departed? Who doesn't? 

My maternal Zaidy z"l used to sit in his chair conversing to himself, or so we thought. 

We asked him who he was talking to and he told us the Moloch Hamoves (the Angel of Death), and he was chuckling because the Angel said it's his time, but he wasn't ready to go. So they would chat about it. 

My Zaidy wanted to make it to 100, but obviously his negotiations with the Angel of Death were not successful after he turned 96. 

Still a good life, from escaping the shetls of Poland-imagine the fate that would have met him at Jedwabne, his home town, to being a tailor in Canada (Tip Top) and raising a family in Canada. He was a simple man who was very flawed, but pious and I remember him quite fondly.  

France is Done

It's truly a third world, murderous sh&thole.

This Is So Cute: Norfolk Airport Police Take Excellent Care of Little Girl's Lost Stuffed Dog

Honestly, this story made me smile from ear to ear. 

Well played, Norfolk Airport Police.

Hoping this little kid gets lucky as well.

If you want a laugh read through the comments. Seems like there's lots of adults still attached to their (grubby) stuffed animals. Very cute and very heartwarming.

The Evil Juice

I'm in a charitable mood this evening so I was moved by this humanitarian gesture. 

But most times, I feel like this is a wasted effort. Will that mother, or family, or baby really remember the Jews that treated them or saved their life, or will they think we are massive suckers? I don't know.

I do know one thing. Real peace will be when Syrian doctors treat "Zionist" children in need.

Regardless,  Jews being kind to Arab or other foreign (foreign to Israel I mean, and non-Jewish) children and saving their lives is not a news story in my view.

It's de rigueur for us.

Jews: Please Leave Europe

A few random nuggets from the antisemitic hell hole of Europe:

Germany sucks. 

More from Germany. 

France is awful. 

More from France. 

No Jewish future in Sweden (duh).

From the UK. 

From Turkey. 

Two Good Ones On America

No, America is not a "nation of immigrants". It's a nation of individuals bound by creed.

Also, anti-Trump conservatives are wildly out of touch with the American electorate.

Joy Is Illegal in Iran

This is so disgusting.

I'm heartsick over the dancer who has been arrested. Dancing is the body expressing the soul. It's glorious.

This is another reprehensible move by the Iranian regime.

I feel like we are getting closer to its end. I hope my gut feeling is correct.

The U.K Is Dead To Me

England: a new case of Female Genital Mutilation happens every two hours in the formerly Great Britain. 

I'm Confused...The "L"s Want to Take the "T"s out of LGBQTs, etc...

OK I'm not that confused.

I remember reading several prominent gay bloggers a few years ago urging "G"s to kick the "T"s out of the LGBT movement.

Anyway this is the ultimate result of having a victimhood hierarchy.

An Absolute Must Read: Through the Looking Glass At Concordia University (in Montreal)

Parents-think very carefully about where your children are educated.

"In almost every class, I found myself brushing up against what I had come to think of as the moral gatekeepers of the academy. By acting, or failing to act, by sustaining an arena where students—young, unformed, knowing not what they do—were encouraged to run wild and roughshod over all standards of fairness, openness, and intellectual inquiry, the professors had allowed the institution to transform into something of a madhouse. Select identities, authors, voices, words, and thoughts were permitted at the table; the rest were cast out or barred, without question, as though everything had already been decided. Any pursuit of truth, or dialectic of ideas, was cut off at the knees before it even got started, as the participants expended their energies policing language and asserting their moral virtue. It didn’t even matter if the students making the complaints were in the minority—all it took was one. Instead of a widening of horizons at university, I experienced there a strange sort of thinning, a constriction of the known world and all of reality into a single, narrow, idiosyncratic and firmly imposed set of perceptions and thoughts, an orthodoxy, a faith."

"The academy, it seems to me now, has reverted in some ways to its old role as a religious institute, as in the days before Newton, a place of enforced consensus and theological purity. Percy Shelley was famously expelled from Oxford for atheism, for daring to question the orthodoxy of the University, and I see no evidence that he would fare much better today."

"This is just a call for sanity. I am a left-leaning progressive. I am an ally to progressive causes. But I can certainly tell you this: one does not sway hearts and souls through the policing of language, the policing of thoughts, the silencing of voices, and the dismissal of viewpoints. That way lies madness."

This is a very frightening tale indeed.

Read the whole thing.

Good On You, Douglas Murray!

I love this guy.

The good news is it's not eavesdropping on your audio conversations.

The bad news is that it's eavesdropping by way of video. 

The Great Col. Richard Kemp: The Bravest and The Best

This is a must read piece from the delightful Col. Richard Kemp. 

It's about how disgusting trash humans are attempting to sully the legacy of heroism of Yoni Netanyahu, Z"L.

I listened to a BBC History podcast (from May 10, you can look it up if you want, I don't want to give them any more traffic), in which the historian discussing his book was quite sympathetic to the terrorists and basically described Yoni Netanyahu as a bungler. It was quite obscene.

I'm really happy that Col. Kemp has written this essay.

Good on him.

He is a Brit of tremendous character, an officer and a gentleman indeed, and following in the ever more rare tradition of the great British/Anglo philosemitic gentiles of old.

The Troubling Rehabilitation of Leni Reifenstahl

"Following Riefenstahl’s post-war rehabilitation—she was never convicted of being a Nazi by the Allies—she made a secret deal with Transit Films and government officials to receive royalties from her Nazi-era projects. Riefenstahl felt no need for “atonement” along the lines of Hitler’s armaments chief, Albert Speer. Well into her golden years, Riefenstahl vigorously sued people who claimed she had been a Nazi."

So This Is Rather Disturbing

But not surprising.

Randy, geriatric, leftist Swedish women and the oooh-oooh-Mahmoud factor.

Sick stuff. 

OMG Funnnnnnnyyyyy: Puppy Names for Fauxahontas

I'm dying! 

"Preserving the Memory of the Holocaust ('Especially Now')

This story pisses me off. 

A pox on the BBC. 

The "especially now" is supposed to be a thinly veiled reference not just to 'nationalism' but probably also to Trump or something. But do you know what 'especially now' actually means? 


Especially now that it's not safe for Jews in Germany because of this specific policy. Especially now because of Angela Merkel. Especially now that German women aren't safe walking down their own streets. Especially now that migrants are raping and murdering their way through Europe. 

This is supposed to be a touching, moving piece of journalism. 

In fact, this is a very sinister little piece of propaganda. 

Germans gotta German.

The correct answer to "I'm offended" is "so what". 

Answer: What Kind of A Bloody "Life" Do These Poor Women Have Anyway

Question :

"Why is female suicide in Afghanistan so high?"

File under: questions so dumb that only the BBC can ask them, and so earnestly to boot.

Read the whole article and see if you can't figure out why so many women decide to end their lives in this sh&thole.

Sorry. Gross.


The UK Is Screwed

Here is a picture of "Great" Britain in two vignettes.

The decline is irreversible.

Exhibit number one:

"A 79-year-old gay Anglican priest in the U.K. has defended his marriage to a 25-year-old male model from Romania, insisting he is not “a dirty old man” but just wants “to show people we are normal.”

Number two:

This is now a culture that sacrifices its women and children.
