His passion for Israel is well known, well thought out, well delivered and spot on.
This is nothing more than more distraction from the real problems facing this nation. The economy, joblessness, the congressional fight over unemployment insurance and immigration, the abject failure of the online debut of Obamacare, Afghanistan, the rising of Al-Qaeda in Iraq as a real threat to stability in the region, Syria's Assad continuing the bombing of his people, the coming collapse of Egypt and increased genocide in Sudan, as well as Iran ignoring its recent agreement with the U.S. as Tehran steps up production of plutonium for a nuclear weapon; and yes, the fact that we still don't know what really happened at Benghazi, the NSA, the IRS and the .gov ACA website.
In light of what is really important in the news and the fact that we are not getting that news because SQUIRREL! we are being purposefully distracted by the Enquirer-esque reporting from what is supposed to be our primary news sources on TV and the written press.
It's a sad day in America when in order to find out what is really going on in this nation and around the world I have to tune into the RT, CCTV and Al-Jazeera networks to learn about a deadly chemical spill in West Virginia, another wave of massacre of innocents in Sudan and the death of two American soldiers in a crash over in Afghanistan. Why? Because MSNBC, CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS & Fox News are frothing at the mouth over this ridiculous Christie story nearly 24/7.
I have been a student of history since 1964 thanks to a social studies teacher named Mr. Martin. I have studied the rise and fall of several great empires - from Sumer, Assyria, Babylon, Greece, Rome, Spain, France, Great Britain, the Soviet Union and Germany. What makes the United States uniquely different from all those other great empires was how it began as a Constitutional Republic. What makes the United States almost identical to each of the past powers is how it is falling. The fall of every great empire is virtually identical - first comes small compromises that betray its founding principles, then greater and greater decisions that move the nation further and further away from its foundation until several generations have passed who have no real knowledge of what it was that made them great. Replaced in their hearts and minds is the idea that they are not really that great or exceptional or unique from any other nation and therefore have no real say or voice as to which direction the world would be better placed for future generations. Finally, over time, the whole house of cards comes falling down around them with so many problems coming at them at once that they seek refuge in the trivial and salacious gossip. In fact, they demand it from those that are suppose to deliver the facts of a story and not the titillation. Anything to keep their minds off the reality of the world around them because, since they no longer consider themselves exceptional they are no longer capable of finding solutions for these self-made problems that would and could have been easily navigated had they not forsaken the first causes of their founding.
I hold many responsible for the decline we are witnessing within the American Empire. The politicians, the guardians of the 4th Estate - our news agencies, the courts and the presidents that have held that center seat over the last four decades. However, the real persons responsible are us - We the People. We have stopped standing on that wall as the first defense of liberty. We have fallen asleep on our watch and as a result the barbarians are not at the gate - we have become the barbarians.
Yet, someone in New Jersey Republican Governor Chris Christie's administration gets involved in some political shenanigans that backed up traffic on the George Washington Bridge and the press is all a twitter with how Christie was either part of the operation or should not be eligible to be president one day if he knew nothing about what his staff were doing behind his back to give him an edge in the election.
If memory serves the "I didn't know" mantra is a favorite of President Obama, while Hillary Clinton's catch phrase is "What difference does it make."
Perhaps The Joker sums it up best in this image and caption:
Joining Silverman and Galifianakis on the podium will be Josh Homme from Queens of the Stone Age, Steve Agee and other less than talented, wannabe funny nobodies. It will be held at the Largo Comedy Club in Los Angeles and as an indicator of just how far the left coast has slid nearer to the ocean, the $100 (USD) ticket price wasn't quite steep enough to keep the the mentally challenged progressive liberals away for all seats have sold-out. A sad commentary on our times.
As I was pondering this event over in my brain and trying to get a handle on just how intellectually dense this segment of the population in this country is to think this might even be sort of a good thing I suddenly remembered a bit of not too long ago history in which this same kind of mindset was running rampant in a so-called civilized society called Germany.
Have these supporters of abortion really thought this whole thing through on a logical, rational level?.....Or, are they incapable of that kind of sound reasoning and understanding. It is likely that they are completely unaware that their worldview on abortion and human rights was at one time the prevailing view in a great portion of central and eastern Europe just a short 82 years ago.
Each of us will come to a time when we will die, hopefully after a long, productive and happy life. However, for those who support the taking of life, at any stage of its development, it must be a nice feeling for them to know that when they die their epitaph will be they helped murder millions of humans. That kind of makes them a Hitler-type when you really stop to rationally think about it.
Adolph Hitler had decided that a certain type of human was not really human and therefore, that justified him killing them off without prejudice. Those supporting abortion have decided that an unborn and even a newly born child in today's society in America is not a human and feel justified in destroying its life as well. The difference being those who support abortion have murdered well over 6 million other human beings - so, I guess, mathematically that makes them worse than der Fuhrer.
1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.
2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.
3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it!.
5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is the beginning of the end of any nation.
Democrats are fighting Grothman’s proposed legislation saying that if instituted as law it would be a real blow to worker’s rights and the death of one of their favorite progressive labor laws.
What the Democrats are overlooking is this piece of legislation, if passed in the State Senate, would be voluntary. No worker would be required to work seven days a week unless they wanted to.
The other thing liberal Democrats are overlooking is the fact of how the five or six day labor laws came into effect in this nation. Since progressives are the biggest supporters of the whole idea of separation of Church and State then they should be applauding Senator Grothman and getting aboard his bandwagon because in effect he has gotten aboard theirs.
If the history of this nation is remembered the only reason there is a five and six day work week is because Saturday is the Jewish sabbath and Sunday is the Christian sabbath. That is the only reason the early settlers in the New World took one or both of those days off as a day of rest. Much later the progressives and unions followed suit in order to have a political negotiating tool against corporate management since for over two hundred years all workers were so use to having at least one day per week off to rest.
The concept of having at least one day of rest came straight out of the Jewish Bible (Exodus 20:8) and has nothing to do with keeping workers happy, but everything about obeying divine law and keeping their idea of G-d happy. This Republican, as his like-minded liberal/progressive Democrats, is simply willing to keep everyone unhappy - G-d and people alike.
