I’m Ultra Orthodox, and I take offense at your last sentence. SOME Jews are problems, whether they are Reform, Orthodox, or secular. SOME black people, SOME white people…
Get my drift? Please check your bias at the door, and try to get out more often.

Me too. I have PTSD from abuse, and I don’t keep my weapon within easy reach. I do have a lock on my bedroom door, so that gives me a few extra seconds to wake up, find the weapon, and assess the situation.
In my state, you can’t shoot unless they are inside your home, so if someone is coming in the window, you’d better make sure they’re 3/4 of the way in. If they fall outside, you’ll have a lot of ‘spliainin’ to do.

IMHO, the charges should be against the parents. On all sides, but especially the shooter.
I have a daughter with extreme anxiety issues, especially at night. She has NO idea where I keep my weapon, and she never will until she is old enough to have proper training and get her own license. As a matter of fact, lately I’m thinking she won’t be old enough until she’s in the IDF, and I’ll let them handle teaching her.

I like most of Prince’s music, but I wish he’d stick to songs that make me want to get drunk and have sexy fun times.
He’s bringing down my buzz, man.

I’m a Religious Zionist and a Libertarian. Decisions, indeed!

You are correct that Israel was founded on socialist principles. It’s a very young country, and it’s still evolving. Israel is still trying to figure out what kind of government will serve the most people the best, and she has a long way to go, but at least it’s an ongoing dialog.
I’m a proud Religious Zionist, and a Libertarian as well. It’s an interesting mix, for interesting times.

She’s just lucky they weren’t all tossed off the plane for being “non compliant and disruptive”.
My special needs daughter and I have been split up more times than I can count. I just say “Really? OK. If you want someone else to sit next to an Autistic kid who will take nonsense the whole way, go right ahead.” That fixes the problem every time!

And the women in the IDF kick some serious butt, too. Don’t mess with Israel!

Yet another great thing that Israelis have brought to the world. Am Israel Chai!

Conservative Americans are often heard to say “I love my country, but fear my government.” Unfortunately, the same is true of Israel. The politics there are a hot mess. I still love the land, though.

We Jews are the “People of the Book”. That said, books in Israel are extremely expensive, and the VAT on imported books is crazy. That’s why I’m taking a Kindle with me when I move there. Yay Amazon!
True Yocheved. I have a couple of conservative friends living in Jerusalem, and the wife continually complains about getting the books she wants to read. Kindle and the computer has been a life saver for her.
Blessings on making aliyah!

Anyone remember the good old days, when universities were places to get an education?

Don’t order from any company that ships out of an Asian country. They have bins and bins of cheap, mass produced polyester dressed. You place your order for the designer original you see in the pic, and then they go to the bin with the closest size, grab a knockoff that might possibly fool a blind person, shove it in a bag, and take 2 months to ship it to you. They will not answer emails or phone calls, and by the time you get it your 45 days of Paypal coverage will be gone. They time delivery so that you won’t be able to get a refund.
Thank goodness it didn’t happen to me, but it happened to a friend of mine who ordered her bridesmaids dresses this way. It was a disaster!

At least the dog is under the supervision of it’s owner, and not just abandoned in the next room or left on it’s own all day. Babies belong with their parents!

Thank you for commenting. The cynicism here is appalling. We’re talking about some people who were obviously deeply disturbed and unhappy. No one should have to die unloved and in misery.

LOL! I love all those “zero population – child free” types. I think they need to put their words into action, and set a good example for the rest of us, by jumping off a cliff en made like lemmings. That would show us!

Indeed, the ignorance is strong with this one! I thought most modern Christians were more educated than that. Next thing you know, he’ll be dusting off the old “blood libel” thing.
No need,they deny the divinity of the Christ like Muslims. Doesn't make them bad, just Totally, wholly removed from Christian theology..the Christ is not the Son of God, no virgin birth, no trinity, no resurrection, no redemption from the Christ. Again, like all non Christian religions and atheists, they deny Christ is Lord. Why Christians see any reason to choose one denier of Christ over another as some how in any way connected to their salvation should cause pause. Again, no blood libel, no bad wishes for Israel or the people of the Jewish faith...but they are meaningless to a Christian's salvation. Shalom and very best wishes...we are all God's chosen people..well that Christ fellow said so.

I thing all babies are adorable, and fuss over them whenever I get the chance. I’m white, and it seems like black babies stare at me more, are more shy, and basically look at me like “Who the heck are YOU?” I can’t help but wonder how many white people these babies see in their first 18 months of life.
