As a young boy, Polish-born Yisrael Kristal looked forward to turning 13 when he could celebrate his bar mitzvah, the Jewish coming-of-age ritual. But that was 1916 and World War I crushed that hope. Little did he know that he would wait a century for that ceremony.
But the milestone event that marks a Jewish boy's passage to adulthood eluded Kristal until this week when he finally celebrated his bar mitzvah, at the age of 113, surrounded by two children, nine grandchildren and 30 great-grandchildren in Haifa, Israel.
So not only did they cancel his invitation, they lied about why. "Higher" Education in action.
There's some video of Trump saying something crude(and true); big surprise, right? Borrowing from this guy,
However given the reality that either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton will be the next president of the United States I ask Jonah this question:
If we concede that Donald Trump’s character is bad, Would it be better for the country to have a President of poor character who will be under intense scrutiny by the press, pols and law enforcement agencies (Trump) or to have a President of poor character who will be given a pass and or defended by the press, the pols and apparently the FBI regardless of what they say or do (Hillary).I submit and suggest the answer is clearly the former.
And these are the choices the Stupid and Evil Parties have given us. Wonderful.
We told you yesterday that spot prices for German electricity jumped more than 17 percent in one day due to constricted supplies from renewable producers and French nuclear reactors, but as green-crazed Germany continues to wrangle with some of Europe’s highest (and most volatile) electricity prices, American households are about to see the first annual drop in average electricity prices in 14 years.
At some point Germany is going to have to re-think that 'get rid of the reactors' decision, or wind up with a bunch of freezing people coming to government offices with torches and pitchforks.
