Immoral equivalence

You've just got to be impressed with the way the Hollywood leftist attitude manages to infect everyone in the vicinity... sickened but impressed.

Munich is one movie I don't think I'll be seeing.

Hartford CT Matzoh Ball

I called Donna the other day and she told me that they specifically made sure the Matzoh Ball would be Kosher this year just for our group of Kosher Singles and groups like us!
 
She wants us to come so much that she offered to knock $8 off the pre-pay price, even if you've already registered with her!
 
We have to get at least a half dozen people to sign up to get the special rate. Just call her at the number below and mention that you're in the Kosher Singles group.
 
If enough people from the Kosher Singles come I may even make up a button or badge of some sort so we can recognize each other in the crowd!
 
Hoping you all come and let me know if you've signed up!

Ellington Shul: Chanukah Party, Just Jew It!

Hello everyone!
 
The congregants have asked that we have a Chanukah party, so we're having one!
 
I'm also forwarding this message to a few others who I think would be interested in getting it.
 
This Sunday, the 25th of December. (Hey, it's not like there's anything open or anything on TV worth watching!)
 
According to the rules in my siddur, in the synagogue Chanukah candle lighting is supposed to to take place between Mincha & Ma'ariv.
 
Accordingly we will daven Mincha at 4pm with the party at 4:30pm and Ma'ariv to follow the party.
 
Bring any treats, goodies, and fried foods you like, coordinate through me.
 
Also, bring your own menorah and candles too!
 
And don't forget the kids!
 
I'll be going through our telephone list and updating the website to let everyone know too.
 
Feel free to forward this message to anyone you think might like to come.
 
I've also attached a link to a nice little flash movie that Aish Ha'Torah put out for Chanukah this year, enjoy!

How fast can you learn Chinese?

"As it stands today, both China and Russia are closer to the moon than the U.S. and both possess a manned space vehicle capable of reaching the moon"



I find this statement to be absolutely chilling!

I've been saying for many years that we've got to get off our duffs and get back to the moon ASAP, because basically whomever owns the moon owns the Earth too.

As Robert A. Heinlein quite dramatically pointed out in his novel, The Moon is a Harsh Mistress, the military advantages of being on the moon are enormous. A ship loaded with rock launched from the moon at the Earth would strike a city with the energy of a thermonuclear weapon!

If we don't want our grand-kids speaking Chinese and kowtowing to the communist commissars in Beijing, we'd better get our act together now!

Of crosses, crescents and crystals

The man is right.

Instead of making the "Red Crystal" optional for everyone *but* the Israelis to use, they should make it MANDATORY for all international aid missions.

Anything else is just rank bigotry.

PRCS condemns the attack on one of its medical teams

The PRCS is the Palastinian Red Crecent Society.

This sounds like a pretty bad incident.

However, as much as would prefer to stand by my fellow EMSers in this situation, the story has the ring of something missing to it.

It sounds a lot like those of my patients who try to tell me they were just walking along minding their own business when these guys beat them up for no reason.

It sounds unlikely to me that there wasn't any more provocation than was written about in the article.

Perhaps I will find a reference showing the Israeli point of view...
