A few days ago, as we are around the 63rd Anniversary of the Holocaust, and we are still at-shock for how-come some people decided to MURDER in COLD BLOOD, NO LESS than 6 MILLION Jewish Men, Women and CHILDREN, we were reviewing our e-mails and noticed the following amazing one that we thought it;’s worth sharing:

Older and Younger Hands

In  MEMORIUM  – 63 YEARS LATER

Please read the little cartoon carefully, it’s powerful. Then read the comments at the end.
I’m doing my small part by forwarding this message.  I hope you’ll consider doing the same.

Characature-1

In Memorium

It is now more than 63 years after the Second World War in Europe ended. This e-mail is being sent as a memorial chain, in memory of the six million Jews who were murdered, massacred, raped, burned, starved and humiliated with the German and Russian Peoples looking the other way!

At one point, it EVEN became THE LAW OF THE LAND!!!

ONLY because, they were DIFFERENT, THEY WERE JEWS WITH DIFFERENT BELIEFS & DIFFERENT VALUES!!!

ALL THIS, because, NO-ONE CARED!!!

Now, more than ever, with Iraq , Iran , and others, claiming the Holocaust to be “a myth”,  it’s imperative to make sure the world never forgets, because there are others who would like to do it again.

We SHALL NOT forget that it is just LESS than 1st YEAR ANNIVERSARY of that HEART-BREAKING NEWS when some ARABS went in to the Chabad Synagogue of Mumbai to MURDER so many innocent JEWS!!!

We SHALL NOT forget that  they ALSO went in to other places like HOTELS & HOSPITALS in Mumbai and to Synagogue to MURDER so many innocent people who were just living their lives, vacationing, visiting hospitals or were patients in the hospitals, were Doctors & Nurses in the Hospitals, etc…!!!

Join us and be a link in the memorial chain and help us distribute it around the world and ask them to continue the memorial chain.

It will only take you a minute to pass this along

. Thanks!

Carter’s Profile In Incompetence: Carter, The Worst President In American History By INVESTOR’S BUSINESS DAILY

Read this and see if it sinks in.

Profile In Incompetence: The Worst President In American History By INVESTOR’S BUSINESS DAILY

Jimmy Carter became our 39th president at the young age of 52. He was a one-term governor from Plains, GA, where he managed the family peanut farm and taught Sunday school. He was also a graduate of the Naval Academy and served seven years in the Navy, leaving as a lieutenant.

He came to power in the aftermath of the Vietnam War and the resignation of President Nixon. The public wanted change and someone new, and Carter was an ambitious, hands-on politician who promised better days. As good as his intentions were, however, the things he tried were not successful. In fact, he created far more serious problems than he ever solved.

The centerpiece of Carter’s foreign policy was human rights, and he did achieve one noble success-a peace treaty between Egypt’s Anwar Sadat and Israel’s Menachem Begin.

Unfortunately, that later led to Sadat’s assassination at the hands of Muslim radicals.

Many people felt Carter was a good man who worked hard and meant well. But he was naive and incompetent in handling the enormous burdens and complex challenges of being president.

He wrongly believed Americans had an “inordinate fear of communism,” so he lifted travel bans to Cuba, North Vietnam and Cambodia and pardoned draft evaders. He also stopped B-1 bomber production and gave away our strategically located Panama Canal.

His most damaging miscalculation was the withdrawal of U.S. support for the Shah of Iran, a strong and longtime military ally. Carter objected to the Shah’s alleged mistreatment of imprisoned Soviet spies who were working to overthrow Iran’s government. He thought the exiled Ayatollah Khomeini, being a religious man, would make a fairer leader.

Having lost U.S. support, the Shah was overthrown, the Ayatollah returned, Iran was declared an Islamic nation and Palestinian hit men were hired to eliminate opposition.

The Ayatollah then introduced the idea of suicide bombers to the Palestine Liberation Organization, paying $35,000 to PLO families whose young people were brainwashed to kill as many Israelis as possible by blowing themselves up in crowded shopping areas.

Next, the Ayatollah used Iran’s oil wealth to create, train and finance a new terrorist organization, Hezbollah, which later would attack Israel in 2006.

In November 1979, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and other Iranians stormed the U.S. embassy in Tehran and took 52 Americans hostage for 444 days. Not until six months into the ordeal did Carter attempt a rescue. But the mission, using just six Navy helicopters, was poorly executed. Three of the copters were disabled or lost in sandstorms. (Pilots weren’t allowed to meet with weather forecasters because someone in authority worried about security.) Five airmen and three Marines lost their lives.

So, due to overconfidence, inexperience and poor judgment, Carter undermined and lost a strong ally, Iran, that today aggressively threatens the U.S., Israel and the rest of the world with nuclear weapons.

But that’s not all. After Carter met for the first time with Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev, the USSR promptly invaded Afghanistan. Carter, ever the naive appeaser, was shocked. “I can’t believe the Russians lied to me,” he said.

The invasion attracted a 23-year-old Saudi named Osama bin Laden to Afghanistan to recruit Muslim fighters and raise money for an anti-Soviet jihad. Part of that group eventually became al-Qaida, a terrorist organization that would declare war on America several times between 1996 and 1998 before attacking us on 9/11, killing more Americans than the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. On Carter’s watch, the Soviet Union went on an unrestrained rampage in which it took over not only Afghanistan, but also Ethiopia, South Yemen, Angola, Cambodia, Mozambique, Grenada and Nicaragua. In spite of this, Carter’s last defense budget proposed spending 45% below pre-Vietnam levels for fighter aircraft, 75% for ships, 83% for attack submarines and 90% for helicopters.

Years later, as a civilian, Carter negotiated a peace agreement with North Korea to keep that communist country from developing nuclear weapons. He also convinced President Clinton and Secretary of State Madeleine Albright to go along with it. But the signed piece of paper proved worthless. The North Koreans deceived Carter and instead used our money, incentives and technical equipment to build nuclear weapons and pose the threat we face today.

Thus did Carter unwittingly become our Neville Chamberlain, creating with his well-intended but inept, unrealistic and gullible actions the very conditions that led to the three most dangerous security threats we face today: Iran, al-Qaida and North Korea.

On the domestic side, Carter gave us inflation of 15%, the highest in 34 years; interest rates of 21%, the highest in 115 years; and a severe energy crisis with lines around the block at gas stations nationwide.

In 1977, Carter, along with a Democrat Congress, created a worthy project with noble intentions-the Community Reinvestment Act. Over strong industry objections, it mandated that all banks meet the credit needs of their entire communities.

In 1995, President Clinton imposed even stronger regulations and performance tests that coerced banks to substantially increase loans to low-income, poverty-area borrowers or face fines or possible restrictions on expansion. These revisions allowed for securitization of CRA loans containing subprime mortgages.

By 1997, good loans were bundled with poor ones and sold as prime packages to institutions here and abroad. That shifted risk from the loan originators, freeing banks to begin pyramiding and make more of these profitable subprime products.

Under two young, well-intended presidents, therefore, big-government plans and mandates played a significant role in the current subprime mortgage mess and its catastrophic consequences for the U.S. and international economies.

Hardest-hit by the mortgage foreclosures have been the citizens that Democrats always claim to help most-inner-city residents who fell victim to low or no down payment schemes, unexpected adjustable rates, deceptive loan applications and commission-hungry salespeople.

Now, we’re having to bail out at huge cost Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the very agencies that were supposed to stabilize the system. In time, this should improve the situation. But the party of Carter and Clinton that midwifed our mortgage mess now wants to be trusted to take over and have the government run our entire system of health care!

I’ve been wondering how and when Halloween turned into the idol that it is nowadays!!!!

BS”D

I’ve been wondering how and when Halloween turned into the idol that it is nowadays!!!!

Do any of you know?!?!

Well, I tried to search for it Online.

I went to Wikipedia address below:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Halloween

———————————————————————————————

So, Now, my perspective on all of the above stuff:

You know due to reasons like the fact that there are attorneys in this world & they like to start lawsuits for copyright infringements, we had to shorten the parts we copied & pasted to this Blog!

According to what I could figure-out from pages & pages of many different peoples’ contributions to that article, it all started by some churches around the world who seemingly wanted to keep people busy and scared of dead people, so they’d go to church more often!!!!!!

Did you know that according to Wikipedia: “According to B.I.G. research conducted a survey for the National Retail Federation in the United States and found that 53.3% of consumers planned to buy a costume for Halloween 2005, spending $38.11 on average (up 10 dollars from the year before). They were also expected to spend $4.96 billion in 2006, up significantly from just $3.3 billion the previous year”?

So, whose fault is it, anyways?!?!?!

Who exactly made it the idol with the worldwide following that it is nowadays??!!?

Who knows!

BUT, all I know is that the farmers who grow the pumpkins, the wholesalers, the distributors, truck-drivers who bring these useless pumpkins to our cities and the supermarkets, the guys with EMPTY lots who get to fill their lots, a couple of times a year for the 2 parts of the year on Halloween and for the useless green trees in about a month to month & half from now, to the so-on & so-on & so-on who get to make money off of us!

Let’s NOT forget about the costume related people, to the party-makers, alcoholic beverage makers, bars, restaurants, party-planners, …..and so-on!

Dude!

Does that justify that we are feeding an idol?!?!

NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

BUT, it is a great business, though for all of them!

Also, some of those attorneys like to start lawsuits for those who mock their clients like when Oprah just went-off on those meat-producers of America or some group like that!

(NOT that we want Oprah’s attorneys to contact us, either!)

Now that I think of it, perhaps, I should come-up with my own idol that makes Zillions & Zillions of Dollars or ECU’s!


So, with all the people involved with all of the above and many other industries we forgot to mention who MUST have their own attorneys, just waiting for someone to offend their clients, so that they could just etc…..

Those attorneys, MUST have their own attorneys waiting to start class-action lawsuits on-behalf of their clients….

Which leads me to another point, now that I landed so far from where I originally took-off from!

So, Who made lawsuits their own idols we so faithfully worhip??!!??

Well, that’s its own topic of discussion for another time, BUT, I forgot to do all the things I had to do, as I have run out of time!

Until next time!

This is what someone e-mailed me about what Dale Lindsborg of Washington Post recently wrote:

The opinion polls lead you to believe too many folks have already drank the Kool-Aid!



MY G-d! I hope everyone is listening, before it is too late.
Subject: Wow be sure to read to the last paragraph

Perhaps there are SOME out there who are beginning to get ‘the picture’. The following is a narrative taken from Sunday Morning’s televised ‘Meet The Press’. and the author is employed by none other than the Washington Post!! Yeah……the Washington Post of New York and Los Angeles Times fame!! Must say that I’m dually impressed………………
From Sunday’s Televised ‘Meet the Press’ Senator Obama was asked about his stance on the American Flag. Obama Explains National Anthem Stance

Sun, 07 Sept. 2008 11:48:04 EST, General Bill Ginn’ USAF (ret.) asked Obama to explain why he doesn’t follow protocol when the National Anthem is played.

The General also stated to the Senator that according to the United States Code,


Title 36, Chapter 10, Sec. 171… During rendition of the national anthem when the flag is displayed, all present except those in uniform are expected to stand at attention facing the flag with the right hand over the heart. At the very least, ‘Stand and Face It’

Senator Obama Live on Sunday states, ‘As I’ve said about the flag pin, I don’t want to be perceived as taking sides, Obama said.

‘There are a lot of people in the world to whom the American flag is a symbol of oppression. And the anthem itself conveys a war-like message. You know, the bombs bursting in air and all. It should be swapped for something less parochial and less bellicose. I like the song ‘I’d Like To Teach the World To Sing.’ If that were our anthem, then, I might salute it.’We should consider to reinvent our National Anthem as well as to redesign our Flag to better offer our enemies hope and love. It’s my intention, if elected, to disarm America to the level of acceptance to our Middle East Brethren. If we as a Nation of warring people, should conduct ourselves as the nations of Islam, whereas peace prevails. Perhaps a state or period of mutual concord between our governments. When I become President, I will seek a pact or agreement to end hostilities between those who have been at war or in a state of enmity, and a freedom from disquieting oppressive thoughts. We as a Nation have placed upon the nations of Islam an unfair injustice. My wife disrespects the Flag for many personal reasons. Together she and I have attended several flag burning ceremonies in the past, many years ago. She has her views and I have mine’. Of course now, I have found myself about to become the President of the United States and I have put aside my hatred. I will use my power to bring CHANGE to this Nation, and offer the people a new path of hope. My wife and I look forward to becoming our Country’s First Family.
Indeed, CHANGE is about to overwhelm the United States of America.

WHAAAAAAAT the Hell !!!

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, you heard it right. This could possibly be our next President.

I, for one, am speechless.

Simchas Torah

Posted on October 20, 2008. Filed under: Advice, Happiness, happy 5769, happy New Year, Happy New Year 5769, Interesting, Jewish Customs, Jewish New Year, Jewish traditions, Shana Tova, Shmini Atzeres, Shmini Azteret, Simchas Torah, Simchat Torah, Sukkos | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

BS”D

Simchas Torah marks the day we complete the reading of the Torah in its annual cycle.

On the evening of Simchas Torah (and in many communities, on the previous evening of Shmini Atzeres, as well which this year fall on October 20th & October 21st at night at your local Chabad-House) we make Hakafos (circuits) around the table upon which the Torah is read, dancing and rejoicing with the Torah scrolls.

During morning on Simchas Torah, we complete the reading of the Torah by reading the last Torah portion.

Then, we immediately start reading the Torah from the beginning again – remembering that the Torah is an endless source of wisdom, each cycle challenging us to discover its ever deeper meaning.

The Lubavitcher Rebbe says: “On Simchat Torah, the Torah wants to dance, but lacking
the physical limbs with which to do so, it employs the body of the Jew. On this
day, the Jew becomes the dancing feet of the Torah.

In the words of the Chassidic saying, “On Simchat Torah, we rejoice in the Torah, and the Torah rejoices in us; the Torah, too, wants to dance, so we become the Torah’s dancing feet.”

During today’s Torah reading, everyone, including children under the age of Bar Mitzvah, is called up to the Torah; thus the reading is read numerous times, and each aliyah is given collectively to many individuals, so that everyone should recite the blessing over the Torah on this day.

Some Information about Sukkos!

BS”D

The following information was copied form Chabad.org and for more information, we think it would be a good idea to search that site for more information:

Laws and Customs:

Eat in Sukkah (7 days)

The festival of Sukkot, commemorating G-d’s enveloping protection of the Children of Israel during their 40-year journey through the desert (1313-1273 BCE), is celebrated for seven days, beginning from the eve of Tishrei 15. During this time, we are commanded to “dwell” in a sukkah — a hut of temporary construction, with a roof covering of raw, unfinished vegetable matter (branches, reeds, bamboo, etc.) — signifying the temporality and fragily of human habitation and man-made shelter and our utter dependence upon G-d’s protection and providence. “How [does one fulfill] the mitzvah of dwelling in the sukkah? One should eat, drink, and live in the sukkah, both day and night, as one lives in one’s house on the other days of the year: for seven days a person should make his home his temporary dwelling, and his sukkah his permanent dwelling” (Code of Jewish Law, Orach Chaim 639:1).

At least one k’zayit (approx. 1 oz.) of bread should be eaten in the sukkah on the first evening of the festival, between nightfall and midnight. A special blessing, Leishiv BaSukkah, is recited. For the rest of the festival, all meals must be eaten in the sukkah (see the Code of Jewish Law or consult a Halachic authority as to what constitutes a “meal”). Chabad custom is to refrain from eating or drinking anything outside of the sukkah, even a glass of water.

The Ushpizin:

According to Kabbalistic tradition, we are visited in the sukkah by seven supernal ushpizin (“guests”) — Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, Aaron, Joseph and David. On each of the seven days of the festival, another of the seven ushpizin (in the above order) leads the group.

(The sixth Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Schneersohn (1880-1950) spoke of seven “chassidic ushpizin” as well: the Baal Shem Tov, the Maggid (Rabbi DovBer of Mezeritch), and the first five rebbes of Chabad: Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi, Rabbi DovBer of Lubavitch, Rabbi Menachem Mendel (the “Tzemach Tzeddek”), Rabbi Shmuel, and Rabbi Sholom DovBer. The Lubavitcher Rebbe would speak each night of Sukkot on the special characteristics of both the biblical and the chassidic ushpizin of the day and their connection to each other and their specific day of the festival.)

The “Four Kinds” (for 6 days)

“And you shall take for yourself on the first day,” instructs the Torah in Leviticus “the splendid fruit of a tree, fronds of dates, the branch of the thick-leafed tree and aravot of the river.” Torah SheBaal Peh (the oral tradition given to Moses at Sinai and handed threough the generations, and later documented in the Mishnah and Talmud) identifies the four kinds as the etrog (citron), lulav (unopened palm branch), hadass (myrtle twig, of which three are taken) and aravah (willow, two twigs). The palm branch, three myrtle twigs and two willow twigs are bound together (with rings made from palm leaves).

Each day of Sukkot — except Shabbat — we take the lulav in hand, recite a blessing over it, take hold of the etrog, hold the “Four Kinds” together, and move them back and forth in all directions (right, left, forward, up, down and back). An additional blessing, shehecheyanu, is recited the first time that the Four Kinds are taken during the festival. We also hold the Four Kinds during the Hallel prayer (moving them as above in specified places in the text) and the Hoshaanot prayers (during which we march around the reading table in the synagogue) which are included in the daily service each day of Sukkot.

Chol Hamoed

The seven days of the festival of Sukkot consist of two days of “Yom Tov”, followed by five days of “Chol Hamoed” (“weekdays of the festival”; also called “the intermediate days”). In the Land of Israel, there is only one day of Yom Tov, followed by six days of Chol Hamoed.

On Yom Tov all creative work is forbidden as on Shabbat, except for the tasks involved in food preparation (e.g., lighting a fire from a pre-existing flame, cooking, carrying “from domain to domain”); on Chol Hamoed, work whose avoidance would result in “significant loss” is permitted. Otherwise, all the mitzvot and customs of Sukkot apply: eating in the sukkah, taking the “four kinds”, etc. The “Yaale V’yavo” prayer is included in all prayers and Grace After Meals. Hallel, Hoshaanot and Musaf are recited following the Shacharit (morning) prayers.

It is the Chabad custom not to put on tefillin during Chol Hamoed, as on Shabbat and the festivals.

Hoshana-Rabba:

Today (this year, falling on October 21, 2008) is the last day when we eat in the sukkah (although the blessing on the sukkah, recited before eating a meal, is not recited today). Shortly before sunset, many have the custom to enjoy a last snack in the sukkah, thus “bidding the sukkah farewell” until the following year.

Note: In certain communities it is customary to eat some or all of this day’s meals out of the sukkah.

Shmini-Atzeres / Simchat Torah (This year falling on October 22nd & 23rd, 2008)

Simchat Torah (“Rejoicing of the Torah”), on which we conclude, and begin anew, the annual Torah reading cycle. The event is marked with great rejoicing, and the “hakafot” procession, held both on the eve and morning of Simchat Torah, in which we march and dance with Torah scrolls around the reading table in the synagogue. In the words of the Chassidic saying, “On Simchat Torah, we rejoice in the Torah, and the Torah rejoices in us; the Torah, too, wants to dance, so we become the Torah’s dancing feet.”

During today’s Torah reading, everyone, including children under the age of Bar Mitzvah, is called up to the Torah; thus the reading is read numerous times, and each aliyah is given collectively to many individuals, so that everyone should recite the blessing over the Torah on this day.

BS”D

I got this funny e-mail that spells-out the truth!!!!!

TO ALL MY FRIENDS & FAMILY….LIBERAL OR CONSERVATIVE……..FYI  only.
George Bush has been in office for 7 1/2 years.  The first six the economy was fine.
A little over one year ago:
1) Consumer confidence stood at a 2 1/2 year high;
2) Regular gasoline sold for $2.19 a gallon;
3) the unemployment rate was 4.5%.
4) the DOW JONES hit a record high–14,000 +
5) American’s were buying new cars, taking cruises, vacations overseas, living large!…

But American’s wanted ‘CHANGE’!  So, in 2006 they voted in a Democratic Congress and yes–we got ‘CHANGE’ all right. In the PAST YEAR:
1) Consumer confidence has plummeted ;
2) Gasoline is now over $4 to $6 (depending on where you live) a gallon & climbing!;
3) Unemployment is up to 5.5% (a 10% increase);
4) Americans have seen their home equity drop by $12 TRILLION
DOLLARS and prices still dropping;
5) 1% of American homes are in foreclosure.
6) as I write, THE DOW is probing another low~~
$2.5 TRILLION DOLLARS HAS EVAPORATED FROM THEIR
STOCKS, BONDS & MUTUAL FUNDS INVESTMENT
PORTFOLIOS!
YES, IN 2006 AMERICA VOTED FOR CHANGE…AND WE SURE GOT IT!  ….
REMEMBER, THE PRESIDENT HAS NO CONTROL OVER ANY OF THESE ISSUES, ONLY CONGRESS.
AND WHAT HAS CONGRESS DONE IN THE LAST TWO YEARS, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. (Other $168 Billion added by the Democrats as an incentive to pass the $700 Billion of NEEDed money that the taxpayers, their children, their grand-children and many generations after them will be paying for)
NOW THE DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE FOR PRESIDENT CLAIMS HE IS GOING TO REALLY GIVE US CHANGE ALONG WITH A DEMOCRATIC CONGRESS!!!!
JUST HOW MUCH MORE ‘CHANGE’ DO YOU THINK YOU CAN STAND?
