Are the USA and Israel moving in the opposite direction? America moving towards socialism and less jobs and lower standard of living....
...and Israel moving away from socialism and towards new innovative jobs and an optimistic and great future?

One of the things we learn as children is never to play with fire. It's cunning and it always wants to grow and grow. Take a look at these two videos. One is just so darned funny because it relates so closely with the truth. The second video is NOT funny, and the American people better do something quickly in protecting their constitution, before the USA is absorbed into and finds itself under a de facto centralized world government.
Is Obama Poised to Cede US Sovereignty? The World is not bound under the U.S. Constitution, so it couldn't care less about it.
Give Obama the pink-slip. He's done enough damage in the White House. Bring in Alan Keyes, bring in Bill Cosby for goodness sake, just give the pink-slip to this guy who is playing with fire. He shouldn't feel too bad either, as after all, he gets to go home taking with him a Nobel Prize and the big bucks that accompanied it! I'd say those were good parting gifts!

I am close to 50, and every day is still a struggle to do all the things I need to do, or should do. Same with my kids,,, 'Do your homework, clean your room, wash out your dish after you take something to eat in the kitchen", (sigh) it's the same old same old, and of course, the beds still go unmade, I get notes from the teacher, and I end up having a sink full of dishes. It reflects more on me than on them. I'm no Mary Poppins, more like Mary Pooped-out. So why can't we be smart and find the 'element of fun' to motivate our kids and ourselves to make the best choices each day?

I knew that Paula Abdul was Jewish, but that she lights Shabbos Candles?
So, not one just to complain and talk about negative things happening, I thought that I would write something more positive now. So I was sent a link to watch a youtube video, and on the right hand side bar I saw this video below talking about Paula Abdul and her being a good Jewish girl, so curiously, I clicked. Watch at 18 seconds in where she admits that she lights Shabbat Candles.
So, some nice news above, - and no, let's not have any sarcastic - she's not dressed modestly or she does this or doesn't do that. We are all on our own spiritual journey, so please, no 'holier than thou' talk backs.
And to follow up on this nice little news item, there IS a re-kindling of Judaism in Jews who have strayed away to the secular world. My 18 year old son who is in a pre-army program at the moment, went with his Yeshiva - at the request of a secular kibbutz, to hold Yom Kippur services in their club house (they were so anti-religious, they didn't even have a synagogue on the kibbutz). -Well, after that Yom Kippur, the kibbutznik who arranged to have the Yeshiva boys come to lead the services for them, said that their club house has NEVER been so full. There was not enough room, not enough chairs, not enough prayer books for all the kibbutznikim who came for the Yom Kippur services. In addition, see this article on how kibbutzim (and now also neighborhoods in Tel Aviv [known as the 'secular city']) are requesting synagogues and mikvahot (spiritual 'modest' bath houses) to be built for them.
"The Israeli secular community does not really know what to make of the new trend, but Baruch Hashem, many kibbutzim and other secular communities around Israel are requesting a shul and mikve, the very same communities that have lived for decades without the holy structures.
In addition, more and more people today are looking for spirituality in a bankrupt world that offers no ideology except for self gratification and easy money. But things are looking up. When American Idol star Paula Abdul lights Shabbat candles, prays, and goes to a Chabad shul, and even Madonna with her lewd past, is looking for spirituality, albeit in a misguided way, maybe, just maybe, we are closer to redemption than we thought.

So I was watching the news, and saw how when the Nobel Committee spokesperson announced that U.S. President Barack Hussein Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize, the people in the room couldn't believe it. They all at the same time made gasping "Uhhh??" sounds. In fact, I was waiting for someone to either yell out from the crowd, "You lie.", or maybe see someone throw a shoe at him. I guess the Norwegians are too polite for that.
