From My Cats To Yours

My Cats.jpeg

Diversity is a very beautiful thing.


Whether you’re an orange, red, or green cat.


It doesn’t matter–you are a cat!


All cats gotta get along. 


Might does not make a right in any catfight.


But brotherhood of cats does us all good. 


Does every cat need to stand up for it’s daily food?


Sure, but there is more than enough catfood and nip to go around. 


I like to be in a great cat sea purring and frolicking all day long.


Live and let live–and love–all cats and dogs and people and others!


And from the great Martin Luther King Jr. 

“We must learn to live together as brothers 

or 

perish together as fools.”


Shabbat shalom and happy Labor Day holiday weekend!

Ok To Be Ourselves!

Star of David Dress.jpeg

Someone shared this beautiful Jewish wedding gown on Facebook and I wanted to share it with you, because it represents life, love, and faith. 


While perhaps normally I wouldn’t just post this to my blog…


I thought that in light of the report that came out of 917 hate groups operating right now in the United States, that I would take this as an opportunity to be me.


To hell with all the haters out there!


– The more they hate us, the more I will love my Jewishness. 


– The more they try to stamp out our religious freedom, the more I will relish in it. 


– The more they try to kill us, the more I will live as a Jew.


No more Holocausts…no more bigotry…no more hate–it is enough! 😉

Watch A Terrorist In His Evil Action

This is an incredible disturbing video from today’s terror attack in Israel.


A Palestinian terrorist is caught on surveillance camera committing his vile deed. 


The terrorist in the brown t-shirt comes down the grocery store aisle.


But he is not there shopping for groceries. 


Rather, the terrorist is stalking his prey–an innocent Jewish man working in the store stocking shelves for customers. 


The terrorist at first takes a pass by the man checking things out. 


Then he suddenly circles back pulling a deadly knife from his waist and starts viciously stabbing and beating the Jewish worker. 


The mortally wounded victim desperately tries to fend off the terrorist attacker as he comes again and again at him.


Fortunately, others nearby chased the terrorist who was apprehended by police, while the victim remains in critical condition in the hospital fighting for his life. 


Unfortunately, this is daily life in the Holy Land, where bombings, shootings, stabbings, vehicular rammings, Molotov cocktails and rocks are used to kill Jews in their one homeland, Israel.


From Paris and London to New York, Orlando, Jerusalem, and all over the world, terrorists continue to plot and murder innocents. 


Yet, how often do we make excuses for them–it’s not their fault, it’s just a minority, they’re brainwashed, if only we gave in to their demands, etc. etc. etc. 


But does anything really seem to make a difference–more people, more land, more palaces and oil wealth, more respect, more morally corrupt votes at the UN, more, more, more…and still the global radical terrorism and human rights abuses continue.


What happens when one day the terrorist attack becomes one employing true weapons of mass destruction–will anyone really be surprised? 


We pray to G-d for peace and security for your people and for evil to be utterly destroyed. 


Oh L-rd, how long will you let these murderous, vile terrorists attack your children…how long before justice is done. 😉

Hate Proliferates

Supremists.jpeg

I was really surprised to see this sign for White Supremacists right in front of our nation’s Capitol like this. 


Identity Evropa is yet another hate group–this one focuses on people of European ancestry and their website claims, “We are the future.”


But whether you come from Europe or Asia, the Middle East or Africa, America or the moon, aren’t we all just people at the end of the day.


Who cares whether your black or white or yellow or brown, or what religion you practice, or your gender, or sexual orientation, or whether you lean left or right. 


At the end of the day, are we all not flesh, do we all not bleed, have we all not hopes and fears, do we all not answer to the one G-d Above. 


Hate proliferates from our farm belts to our inner cities, from our universities to our board rooms, from the gazillionaire to the guy who has to shovel shit for a living, from our nasty national politics to the United Nations, there is plenty of hate and bias and bigotry to go around. 


Look to the Heavens, cry a bitter tear, your hatred is your self-destruction. 


You will pray with an evil and hate-filled heart and none will answer you. 


The living G-d of Hosts who created us and loves all his children will not stand idly as hate and supremacy of one over another presides. 


The chains of our affliction, the bullet to the back of the head, the noose and the death camps, the whip, the gas, and the ovens, the hunger, the sick experiments, and the slave labor.


Only G-d is supreme over all and those that seek an advantage on the backs of their brethren will find themselves a fiery hell to contend with. 


From just a little gnat to a growing tumor–that is all that it takes to bring justice and re-level the supremacy playing field and teach who is the King of Kings and there is no other. 😉

Wow 4th of July Flowers

 

Flowers.jpeg

Wow, these flowers were made for 4th of July, right?


How amazing that G-d (maybe with some man adjustments) made these beautiful red, white, and blue flowers–all-in-one! 


Go USA!


It’s truly fantastic to have independence, freedom, human rights, democracy.


We have so much to be grateful for. 


And there is so much that the world can learn and benefit from America.


We’re not perfect–nobody and nothing (but G-d) is. 


But we stand for some really amazing things–and these values are worth sharing and defending. 😉

Jerusalem – Happy 50 Years!

Happy Birthday Israel.jpeg

Just wanted to wish a very happy anniversary to Jerusalem.


It is the 50th year since the liberation and reunification of Jerusalem, the beautiful and eternal capital of the State of Israel. 


Today in synagogue we celebrated with a special kiddush. 


72 years since the holocaust, and Israel doth live!


In song and dance, in prayer and devotion, in doing good deeds and charity, we celebrate our survival and G-d’s redemption and return of the Jewish people to his promised Holy Land. 


With still so much evil in the world–from brutal dictators, terrorists, human rights abusers, and bullies–it is always time to celebrate the freedom and democracy of America and Israel–who serve as a light unto the nations.


Surely as light can drive out darkness, those good people of faith and integrity can overcome the remnants of evil in this world. 😉

Wonder Woman Vs. Hezbollah

Wonder Woman.jpeg

So get how hateful they are behaving in Lebanon…


They have actually banned the movie, Wonder Woman.


Hezbollah is afraid of Wonder Woman!


Gal Gadot, an awesome Israeli actress and model, who plays Wonder Woman is too much for them to handle.


Hezbollah, the terrorist organization in Lebanon–and the proxy for Axis of Evil Iran–has 150,000 missiles aimed at The State of Israel, but is threatened by a pop movie and superhero.


If the culture of democracy, freedom, human rights and peace-loving could overcome the radical Islamists and their terrorism then Wonder Women could become a beloved hero to them too rather than a threat to put in the dustbin along with women’s rights and freedom of religion and expression. 


Wonder Woman block those bullets and missiles and teach those terrorist bad boys a lesson they’ll never forget. 😉
