Thank you sweet friends for being one of the reasons I will have a Happy New Year!

I appreciate every single one of y’all..more than you know.

Youth is when you’re allowed to stay up late on New Year’s Eve. Middle age is when you’re forced to.
Bill Vaughn

New Year’s Eve, where auld acquaintance be forgot. Unless, of course, those tests come back positive.
Jay Leno

Keep laughin’…


But most of all……………
Keep fighting the good fight.
And God bless Y’all.

Like the elephant, we are unconscious of our own strength. When it comes to understanding the power we have to make a difference in our own lives, we might as well be asleep. If you want to make your dreams come true, wake up.

Wake up to your own strength. Wake up to the role you play in your own destiny. Wake up to the power you have to choose what you think, do, and say.
(Keith Ellis)


From the heart of New York City:
May the new Year bring y’all a happiness buffet.

Here’s to good times to come Sweet Friends~!

Camouflage And Christmas Lights by Rodney Carrington

Another Year has come and gone,
And I’m still here holdin’ on,
To this rifle and a picture of my kids,
They’re sayin’ its a holiday,
Sure as hell don’t feel that way,
I don’t think Jesus meant for it to be like this.


A paper star on a plastic tree
Cotton snow in a manger scene
We do the best we can to make it feel like home.
Turkey dinner on paper plates
Sargent bows his head to pray
Boombox playin’ silent night
Camouflage and Christmas Lights.


There probably up on the hill by now
Bundled up and sleddin’ down
Catchin’ snowflakes on the edge of their tongues
Standin’ up at the top would be
The prettiest girl I’ve ever seen
Whispering a quiet prayer for all of us.


A paper star on a plastic tree
Cotton snow in a manger scene
We do the best we can to make it feel like home.
Turkey dinner on paper plates
Sargent bows his head to pray
Boombox playin’ silent night
Camouflage and Christmas Lights.


Some say I’m a hero
But I’m just a Dad
Who’s trying to protect
The most precious thing I have
Someday I’ll be home again
And our world will be right
But for tonight


A paper star on a plastic tree
Cotton snow in a manger scene
We do the best we can to make it feel like home.
Turkey dinner on paper plates
Sargent bows his head to pray
Thank God it’s a silent night
Camouflage and Christmas Lights.


We know they serve our country best
Their loyalty— a proven test
Every sweet American soldier’s soul
Bears the burden of this honorable goal.

Please keep them in your prayers this holiday season.

It was once said:

Soooooooooo, who’s comin to dinner?

Nelson Mandela: Anti-Semite? Sadly:Yes.

Friday, December 6th, 2013

KNOW whom you mourn.
Mandela Was an Enemy of Israel

On a first name basis with his pal “Yasser” Arafat…who is responsible
for the Sept 11th carnage and introducing highjacking of innocents on
planes to the free world………..

…his biography reveals that he was an enemy of the Israeli people.

A post-apartheid Pretoria that joins in boycotting Jerusalem is one of the more powerful victories for the boycott and divestment campaign. And it’s Nelson Mandela’s legacy.

Mandela always made it clear that those who are the enemies of the Jews are not necessarily his enemies.

In 2000, the American Jewish Committee canceled a Washington luncheon scheduled to honor Mandela after he said that 13 Jews tried for “espionage” in Iran were receiving a “fair trial”.

Mandela laid a wreath on the grave of Ayatollah Khomeini, the father of the Iranian revolution, warmly greeting his successor, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

“We are indebted to the Islamic Revolution”, Mandela proclaimed.

It is the same Mandela who claimed that Communist Cuba had achieved the “systematic eradication of racism”.

In 1990, Mandela likened Israel to a “terrorist state” and declared that “we do not regard the PLO as a terrorist organization.

If one has to refer to any parties as a terrorist state, one might refer to the Israeli government because they are the people who are slaughtering defenseless and innocent Arabs in the occupied territories”.

Mandela should have raised Jewish eyebrows when in 1990 he embraced Arafat in Lusaka, Zambia, likening the Palestinian-Israeli conflict to the struggle against South African apartheid. “If the truth alienates the powerful Jewish community in South Africa, that’s too bad”, said Mandela.


But hey….It’s official.
It’s cool to have a hate on for JEWS. And it’s not politically correct to call anyone out on anti Semitism or anti Christianism for that matter, right?

Shhhhhhhh. The “cool” people may get offended.

Observe how acceptable it is for Jew haters to toss words like TWO STATE SOLUTION around.

Supporting the so-called “Pale-stinians” is the only way for Liberal Westerners to be anti-Jewish openly and unapologetically, while it provides the entire Muzlim world with the perfect outlet for their age old (well documented) anti-Jewish hatred.

We all know how The Palis just love the “status quo”. This way, they continue to blame Israel for everything, raise tons of money from the A-rab world, while their thug leaders can live off the fat of the land, leaving their own people to live in squalor.

After all, they don’t even have to provide for the welfare of their own because Israel herself, America and the EU will.

Wake up people:
The word “Compromise” doesn’t exist in the Pal-estinian vocabulary.

Ahem…Read the Ham-ASS and FAT-ah charter.

This is the reality:

-Arabs chose war over peace and genocide over coexistence.
-The pseudo Pale-stinians voted for Ham-ASS.

-They voted for war against Israel, just like in 1948.

But ..they must not pay price for their vile decisions, eh?

-They found themselves conquered by this lofty nation, after they pre-emptively attacked it.

These conquered “Arabs”, against ALL common sense and better judgement, were then granted partial autonomy (by Liberal Jews), which, incidentally they did nothing to earn.

-They continue to maim and kill Israeli civilians– (the country that allowed them residence). thus driving their own economy into ruin.

-They use their own children as suicide bombers and human shields rather than sending them to schools, which, incidentally –are built for them at foreign expense, and which they conveniently use as military bases.

While Israeli children die and face embedded shrapnel daily, it has become clear that the only effective method of dealing with these Arabs would be expelling the hostile peoples from the Jewish territory known as ISRAEL.

Needless to say, the Liberal moonbats find this morally reprehensible.

Jewish blood spilling daily reprehensible to them?
Not so much.

Two- State solution?
Yea. In some drug induced stupor, twisted Fantasyland perhaps.

We now return you to reality.

Worth 3 minutes of yer time sweet Friends.2hearts2


So sorry…Not jumpin on this bandwagon anytime soon.

I choose to mourn all the innocents savagely wounded and murdered by
all the terrorst enablers instead……….

A Chanukah Story:-)

Sunday, December 1st, 2013

The Chanukah Candle
that Inspired George Washington

Chanukah (1775) 5537.

A difficult winter. Terrible cold. We are sitting in Valley Forge and waiting.
Why? I don’t know. Perhaps for better days than these. I am the only Jew here.

Perhaps there are other Jews among us, but I haven’t seen any. We hunger for bread. We have no warm clothing or shoes to protect our feet. Most of the soldiers curse George Washington for going to war against Britain.

There are those who hope for his downfall, but I believe that his cause is just. We must expel Britain from America. She wants to put her hands in everything her eyes see. Although we are suffering here terribly,

I am loyal with all my heart to George Washington.

More than once I see him at night, passing through the camp, between the rows of sleeping soldiers.

He gazes with compassion upon the soldiers who are suffering from the cold. And sometimes he approaches one of the sleeping soldiers and covers him, as a father would cover his son.

There are times when the hunger and the freezing cold torture me to death. But I don’t curse General Washington who is fighting for the freedom of America.

At moments like this I think of my father in Poland. I think about all that he suffers at the hand of the cruel “Poritz”. (Noblemen)
I remember: I was a child then and I saw my father dancing before the Poritz. What an awful thing to see! My father was wearing the skin of a Polar bear – and danced like a bear before the Poritz and his guests.

What terrible pain! What great shame! My father dancing like a bear – and the “Poritzim” (Polish Noblemen) laughing and rejoicing at the sight. I decided then and there that I will never dance like my father before the Poritz.

Afterwards, I escaped to America.

And now I am lying in Valley Forge and shivering from cold. They say that Washington is losing and that he can’t win this war. But I don’t believe all that. I lie at night and pray for him.

The first night of Chanukah arrives.

On this night, years ago, I left my fathers house. My father gave us this Chanukah menorah and said to me, “My son, when you light the Chanukah candles, they will illuminate the way for you”.

Since then, the Menorah has been like a charm for me.
Wherever I go, I take it with me. I didn’t know what to do – to light the Chanukah candles here…. or not.

I decided to wait until they were all asleep, and then I took out my father’s Menorah. I made the brocha and lit the first candle. I gazed at the light and remembered my parents’ home.

I saw my father dancing like a bear before the Poritz and I saw my mother’s eyes filled with tears.
My heart was filled with pain and I burst out crying like a small child. And I decided then in my heart, that for the sake of my father and mother, for my brothers and sisters in Poland.

I must help George Washington make America a free country, a land of refuge for my parents and brothers who are subjected to the cruelty of the Poritz.

Suddenly I felt a gentle hand touching my head. I lifted my eyes and it was he – he himself was standing over me and he asked, “Why are you crying, soldier? Are you cold? “.

Pain and compassion were in his voice. I couldn’t bear to see him suffer. I jumped up, forgot that I was a soldier standing before a General, and said what came from my heart, like a son speaking to his father:

“General Washington,” I said, “I am crying and praying for your victory.

And I know that with the help of G-d we will win. Today they are strong, but tomorrow they will fall because justice is with us. We want to be free in this land. We want to build a home here for all those who flee from the hands of “Poritzim”, for all who suffer across the ocean.

The “Poritzim” will not rule over us! They will fall and you will rise!” General Washington pressed my hand.“Thank you, soldier,” he said. He sat next to me on the ground, in front of the Menorah.

“What is this candlestick?”, he asked.

I told him, “I brought it from my father’s house. The Jews all over the world light candles tonight, on Chanukah, the holiday of the great miracle”.

The Chanukah candles lit up Washington’s eyes, and he asked joyfully, “You are a Jew from the nation of Prophets and you say we will be victorious?!”

“Yes sir,” I answered with conviction. “We will win just like the Maccabees won, for ourselves and for all those who come here after us to build a new land and new lives.”

The General got up and his face was shining. He shook my hand and disappeared in the darkness.

My faith prevailed. Washington’s victory was complete. The land was quiet. My General became the first President of the United States and I was one of its citizens. I soon forgot the terrible days and nights in Valley Forge.

But I kept the memory of that first night of Chanukah in my heart like a precious dream. I did not relate it to anyone because I said to myself: Who will believe me? I was certain that the General forgot it completely. But that was not the case. He didn’t forget.

The first night of Chanukah (1776) 5538.
I was sitting in my apartment in New York, on Broome Street, and the Chanukah candles were burning in my window.

Suddenly, I heard a knock at my door. I opened the door and was shocked: my General, President George Washington, was standing in the doorway (there himself), in all his glory.

“Behold the wonderful candle. The candle of hope of the Jewish People,” he proclaimed joyously when he saw the Chanukah candles in my window.

He put his hand on my shoulder and said, “This candle and your beautiful words ignited a light in my heart that night. Soon you will receive a Medal of Honor from the United States of America, together with all of the brave men of Valley Forge. But tonight, please accept this token from me.”

He hung a golden medallion on my chest and shook my hand. Tears filled my eyes and I couldn;t speak. The President shook my hand again and departed.

I came to, as if from a wonderful dream, then I looked at the medallion and saw an etching of a beautiful Chanukah Menorah.

Under it was written: “A token of gratitude for the light of your candle – George Washington”.

This is a true story.
