After seeing some photos of the funerals of those boys, one could easily be rendered kind of paralyzed, not wanting to do anything, which is exactly how we feel tonight. But that’s not what we must do nor how we must react. We must carry on even though our hearts are heavy. Nothing will be gained from our inactivity. Just as many took on mitzvot in the hope of beseeching Hashem to find those boys, so must we keep doing those mitzvot in their memories.
As bad as you thought Obama was before those boys were found yesterday, you may want to punch the computer after you read this. David Efune, editor of the Algemeiner, a reputable Jewish newspaper, compared what David Cameron of Great Britain said yesterday to what Obama said. We won’t bore you with the entire exchange, rather cut to the chase:
Obama: “The United States condemns in the strongest possible terms this senseless act of terror against innocent youth. …I also urge all parties to refrain from steps that could further destabilize the situation.”
Cameron; “This was an appalling and inexcusable act of terror perpetrated against young teenagers. Britain will stand with Israel as it seeks to bring to justice those responsible.”
Not much more to say. Obama is completely over his head in everything he is now doing, unable to show any leadership at all. From Nigeria to Iraq to his serious immigration issues to putting out a statement that just cannot hide his disdain for Israel. He is a disgusting human being.
Can someone explain the sloppy work of the construction workers in this city? Maybe it’s too hot for them to work. Maybe they’ve had one Molson too many. Maybe they need bigger sandwiches. Maybe they need to be watched like little children. Maybe they don’t know what their doing.
Last Friday while digging on a street over the Viger tunnel, someone ‘accidentally’ drilled too far down and drilled right into the roof of the tunnel. This caused mass chaos during the Friday afternoon rush hour as the tunnel had to be completely shut down.
Today some other geniuses were working on Sherbrooke and hit a gas line ‘by accident’. One can only imagine the chaos that ensued there.
Perhaps these men need to, shall we say, focus on their jobs? What a revelation.
In case you were wondering, the US lost to Belgium in the world cup soccer match. We happened to be listening to US radio today and the sportscasters were trying to explain to the rules and basically how the game is played to a population pretty well ignorant of the game. Now that they’re out, time will tell if soccer will take hold. One thing is for certain: It’s the cheapest sport around. All you need is a pair of shoes and ball.
Rob Ford is officially back in business. He came out – pardon the expression – at Toronto’s Canada day parade and was met with both glad tidings and jeers of ‘you’re an embarrassment to our city’.
Before walking in the parade he gave a 20 minute apology about his abominable behavior over the past year. Words are easy to say. Let’s see what happens in the next few weeks. In case you’re wondering, he did lose weight but is still rather stout. Nice way of saying he has a lot more weight to lose.
Can someone please explain to Blanche why people are still buying GM cars? That company has have the poorest quality control known to man. Yesterday they recalled yet another 8.2 million vehicles, including almost 700,000 in Canada, again over faulty ignition switches.
The latest recalls involve mainly older midsize cars and bring GM’s total recalls in North America to 29 million this year, surpassing the 22 million recalled by all automakers last year.
These recalls are no joke. If you have items other than your car key dangling from your key chain it could cause the ignition to turn off. Imagine you’re driving along the highway and suddenly your car just stops going.
We wonder who’s minding the store over there. There is certainly no one who knows what’s being put into their cars. Oh wait. They did know but hid it for about 13 years. That deserves jail time, not money given to families who lost loved ones due to GM’s negligence. Why do we think Obama is also responsible for this?
A baby bear, aka a cub, was rummaging through the garbage somewhere in New Jersey and found one of those large plastic cookie jars. Not one to leave a crumb behind, the cub put its head into the jar. Whadda ya think? His head got stuck and he had to be rescued. Thankfully things worked out well and the cub has its head still intact.
Happy end of Canada Day We’ll talk…
