people going broke while paying high oil prices
Gas Prices Going Up Again..Were’s Our COLA? We were promised that because of the low gasoline prices and home heating oil that seniors were not going to get a cost of living increase in their Social Security Checks. Now the President has put a halt on off shore drilling in and because of this action-gas prices are on the rise once again .
No press outlet seems to care to report this or put iton the front page, just like the age to fully collect Social Security rose from 65 to 66 it is virtualy being given the blackout treatment by the press.
Call or write your representative and now that gas prices are soaring tha we want our cola.

Are Israeli Jews distancing themselves away from American Jews? Does Non English Israeli Jews Have less in common among English Speaking Israelis & American Jews in General. Is the fact that the Conservative and Reform elements of the Israeli population being treated second-rate by the Chief Rabbis bearing its toll?
The American Jewish public seems to have found common ground in Politicians such as Netanyahu who was educated partly abroad in The US. rather than the strictly Hebrew Speaking Israelis. The non English speaking Israeli Generals and Politicians come across a sort of alienated from American Jews..
Netanyahu’s major appeal to American Jews was his command of the English language and not coming across and sounding like for lack of a better word what Pre WW 11 American Jews once refered to as “A Mocky..Once another Israel politician obtains the Prime Minister office and English is not their first language ..it drives a wedge between & distances itself from who American Jewish voters can relate to as one of their own.
Many American Jews hailing from Eastern and. Central Europe have often pondered if this could have been avoided avoided had Israel Adopted Yiddish as their national language rather than Hebrew .
Just think about all those Jews who came from Europe that would have packed up and moved to Israel However that’s a mute issue today.
Has the Diaspora Jewish Community’s support eroding or at best a nominal or lack luster for Israel by from both American and non Israeli Jews?
Is this why American Jewish Lawmakers are voting contrary to Jewish and Israeli interests. In addition The Haredi and their small minor Political party “United Torah Judaism” are bending the major parties over the desk to get everything on their wish list. What the two major Israeli political parties have to do is shun them as they do the Arab Israeli parties when forming a government. Whether the Israeli population realizes it the American Jewish Community is directly responsible for the most generous foreign aid package that Israel receives and keeps its that way voting Pro Israel Politicians..Although the American Jewish Community doesn’t put it’s life on the line by serving in the IDF it plays a vital role in the safeguarding ofIsrael.Do not alienate American Jews.
Certain Republican Party members are way out of Line.First Donald Trump signed a pledge not to run as an Independent by the party & now that Trump is running away with the Republican primary nomination, Some Republicans are looking to back out of their word and not honor the pledge..not right if you ask me .
.For someone to float around the thought to allow Mitt Romney to enter the race is totaly absurd,Romney is a looser number one number he lost 4 years ago ,Second, haven’t we learned anything from the past when the old Democratic party every four years would put up Adelei Stevenson for President ? I don’t believe Trump is a racist , and that he is not a friend of Isreal that is totaly absurd, His own daughter is married to Someone Jewish and his grandchild is being raised Jewish.
We see a major 180 degree turn around from the press to somehow derail his campaign from now before Nov, 5th, this is not right. the electorate is speaking loud and clear and we must respect the voting process after all we are not in Russia. What we need is term limits to vote out of office the old stowarts ,old boys club , the old cadavors that now occupy the halls of congrees. Trump represents the new voter a new fresh style of leadership that plenty of folks are flocking to at the polls.let the electorial process work. /end

Election Rallys for the most part are A bunch of Bull sh-t, they pack whatever venue or location with their own people to make it appear that the crowd is 100% enamored with the canidate, its bullsh-t, I know for this for a fact ..When Donald Trump said that the boos were coming from the other canidates supporters, it rings a bell of truth. My Grandmothers own Synagogue in Canarsie Brooklyn was asked to host a rally for Walter Mondale’s Predidency bid. They had a catering hall that had a 600 people capacity. The Mondale people informed the Temple committe that between press,security and Party faithful will fillup the most of the room, and there will only be 25 seats made available for the congragation members. The Temple upon hearing this immediatly flat out Withdrew their request to use their Synagogue as merly a back drop to make it appear as if the congrgation loved their canidate .. This is the way itis at most rally’s and you better believe it
