BEFORE READING-ON . . . Let me write the following, which I will define in my NEXT EDITORIAL. Whether the World will Admit it or Not . . . Whether the World Understands it or Not – And in Spite of the times when he Drives People Like me Crazy . . . THE PLANET IS BLESSED TO HAVE PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP IN THE WHITE HOUSE.
No one is going to Talk or Write About the Following, because it is REALLY far too Politically Incorrect . . . WHICH MEANS I WILL.
In the Jewish Community, especially amongst more Conservative Jews like me, WE HATE IT when anyone in our Community Embarrasses the “TRIBE” for any Reason, just as we take Enormous PRIDE & GLORY when a Jewish Person does something Remarkably Positive, such as winning a Nobel Prize for something Consequential.
JEWS LIKE ME . . . who aren’t really all that Observant LOVED Jewish Athletes like Sandy Koufax, because, in addition to him being an Incredible Baseball Player, he was also Proudly Jewish . . . to the point, that when it came to the Jewish High Holy-Days like Rosh Hashanah & Yom Kippur – HE WOULD NOT PLAY, even in World Series Games.
SO . . . Please imagine how Embarrassed and Let Down we Conservative Jews Felt, when the likes of Bernie Madoff, who was an Icon in the Jewish Community, Scammed Billions of Dollars (much of it from the Jewish Community) in what turned out to be the Largest Ponzi Scheme in World History?
HARVEY WEINSTEIN IS A “PIG” . . . With no Disrespect meant to Pigs. And what Weinstein did was Unconscionable, BUT NO LESS UNCONSCIONABLE THAN WHAT BILL CLINTON DID . . . With the GREAT EXCEPTION – that Harvey Weinstein is Jewish, and because of his Incredible Movie Successes, Weinstein was a source of Great Pride to the Jewish Community. Even to people like me, who never much Liked him, his Attitude and his Politics.
SO . . . When Jewish People Like Madoff and Weinstein do the Kind of things they’ve done, it doesn’t just hurt them and their families – IT HURTS EVERY JEWISH PERSON WHO HAS PRIDE IN THEIR ACHIEVEMENTS.
Every time a Black Person makes a HUGE CONTRIBUTION to Society, whether it be a Man like Dr Ben Carson, an Athlete like Jackie Robinson, and/or an Unflappable Woman like Katherine Johnson, who was Vital to the American Space Project, as was depicted in the movie “Hidden Figures” . . .
. . . It Has To Make The American Black Community Burst With Pride. In Yiddish, we call such an Explosion of Pride “KVELLING”.
SO . . . I HAVE TO WONDER – If mostly Conservative Jewish People like me, are HORRIFIED when Jews Act-Out in the Worst of Ways Possible, like a Madoff or Weinstein, how do Black People Feel when their Heroes “TAKE A KNEE TO THE AMERICAN FLAG”, or promote their Self-Pity-Party on Manufactured (Phony) Endemic Racism in the United States of America, where no such Endemic Racism Exists?
PS . . . Most Of The Jewish & Black Ne’er Do Wells Are Democrats.
ALL OF A SUDDEN . . . The Powers-That-Be in Canada, seemed to have had an Epiphany, that a Family of FOUR, Earning as much as $100,000 a Year is effectively Broke, as if that took some Unimaginable Mental Computing on the Part of a Bureaucrat. AND IT’S REALLY NO BETTER IN THE USA.
I Think – Therefore I Am . . . I Am – Therefore I Live To Pay Taxes.
BETWEEN THE RISING COST OF STAPLES . . . Even though the Politicians and the Fed Claim there Really is No Inflation, just ask anyone who goes Food Shopping or to any Restaurant, if there’s No Real Inflation.
Or ask anyone who Pays for Various Insurances, Vehicle Registration, a Driver’s License, Property Taxes, Water Taxes, Light, Heat & Electricity, Heating-Fuel, Gasoline, Municipal Taxes, State/Provincial Taxes & Federal Taxes if there Is No Real Inflation . . . AND THAT’S BEFORE HEALTHCARE IF YOU HAPPEN TO BE AN AMERICAN.
As I Wrote In My Last Editorial . . . Canada’s Boy-Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, whose LIBERAL Government “FLIPPED-THE-BIRD” to the Purchase of Brand New F-18 Super Hornet Fighter Jets , because Boeing took the Bombardier Regional Jet Manufacturer to Trade-Court, where the Courts Ruled in Favor of Boeing, because Bombardier is so heavily subsidized with Canadian Tax Money, that not only was Trade Competition UNFAIR . . . It Was In Fact No Competition At All.
Canada is going to Replace some of our VERY OLD F-18 Fighter Jets with Slightly Less Old, But No Less USED Australian F-18 Fighter Jets.
No one who Pays Attention to these things, which unfortunately for Canada, includes a whole bunch of People who DON’T pay attention, shouldn’t be surprised with this Fighter Jet Debacle, because in 1998, another LIBERAL Prime Minister of Canada, Jean Chretien, who was Politically Very Close to Trudeau’s Socialist Father (Pierre Elliott Trudeau), bought FOUR USED VICTORIA CLASS SUBMARINES from the British Navy, which turned out to be Submerged Death Traps, which never worked, and still probably don’t work properly even now, and has cost Canada more to repair and keep them in dry-dock for repairs, than it would have cost Canada, Had The LIBERALS Bought Four Brand New Submarines.
AND NOT TO FORGET . . . In a Recently Released International Comparison, Canada’s Socialist Healthcare Ranks DEAD LAST in Deliverability.
So What’s The VALUE Of FREE Healthcare If It Takes Forever To Get It?
