The Talmud (Yoma 22b-23a) poses a challenge to the man of virtue, fighting for noble causes, who is belittled by obstructionist forces. On the one hand, if he does not avenge the honor of his mission “like a snake,” he will be trodden underfoot, unworthy of serious consideration as a visionary. On the other hand, […]

Crooked Hillary née Hillary née Secretary Clinton née Hillary Rodham Clinton née Senator Clinton née First Lady Clinton née Hillary Clinton née Hillary Rodham née Hillary Diane Rodham will not be named on an indictment, nor listed as wanted under her many aliases. Indeed a more unwanted person can scarcely be imagined. The decision not […]
New York City always bubbles like a teapot, but today it is aswirl with an ornerier tempest than the norm. Famous hedge funds, famous philanthropists, respected institutions, all in the eye of the storm. The current uproar has consumed New York society. As one prominent attorney put it, “no one is talking about anything else.” […]
“Trump will lose,” the naysayers keep neighing in my ear. While Democrats have a mystical belief in their leaders, Republicans tend to the pessimistical. Indeed the Democrats should be called the right, because they think they are always right, and the Republicans should be called the left, because they expect to be left behind. Winners […]
The OIG (short for oi gevalt) of the Department of State has issued a report to the effect that Hillary Clinton, like Cleopatra and others who surrounded themselves with snakes, has a big asp problem. What else is new? The purpose of government reports is to restate — with excruciating detail, laborious argumentation, and ponderous […]
In the past I was no devotee of Kasich’s Scriptural exegesis, as when he discovered Obamacare tucked neatly into his Bible. Still, his campaign this time did strike a resonant chord with its worshipful vibrato. I believe him when he professes to seek God’s purpose for his life.
Have we provided an accurate portrayal, con and pro? “The most precious thing in the world is youth. Too bad it is wasted on children.” That quote was attributed to the late George Bernard Shaw in 1931, when the playwright had already attained the age of 75, so presumably he knew whereof he spake. Today […]
This is no conservative quack up. This was a bad week for some one name acts, like Chyna and Prince, who shuffled off the mortal coil and shuttled off, presumably heavenward. But one such act throve mightily, namely The Donald. The uni-nymous candidate was practically the unanimous choice of New Yorkers for President. Granted that […]

This old Jewish joke makes me cry every day. Abe is commiserating with Sam for the break-in that just cleaned out his store. But Sam is cheerful; he says this was the best time for him to be robbed. Why is that? Sam explains: “I just marked down my entire stock 40 percent!” This is […]
