Will an election fix America?

Will an election fix America?
America, we need to wake up. We’re taking our political passions too far. For the first time in my life, I am afraid of my Nation. Nine days ago, eleven people were murdered at a Pittsburgh synagogue while praying, and I see no resolve from the Government, or either political party to fight the hate... Read more »

Late Sunday night, Donald Trump went to twitter and started beating the war drum against Iran. He did so in retaliation to the President Hassan Rouhani’s remarks in a speech that if the U.S. launches a war against Iran, it would be the mother of all wars.

It was a hard day to be a Jew

It was a hard day to be a Jew
My Mother used to say, “If you do not have anything nice to say, then shut up.” Moms are sometimes blunt. I am a Jew by choice. My religion gives me a place in the world and for me, a personal understanding of a Higher Power. Yesterday, it brought me pain, because of ugly things... Read more »

Trump’s failing Presidency

Trump’s failing Presidency
Can Donald Trump salvage his Presidency?  He is in deep trouble, and it isn’t due to the Democrats or from Trump opposition groups.  His wounds are self-inflicted.

Happy Birthday Israel

Happy Birthday Israel
I support Israel.  Being an American, I never thought that would be controversial.  In some circles on the left, it is terribly controversial.  Supporting Israel shouldn’t be controversial.  Making it a controversy is a knee jerk reaction that dismisses the perils Israel faces as trivial.
