Canary’s Controversial Song

Posted on | January 17, 2019 | No Comments

Amid the polarization of America today is a growing split in the Jewish community with many youngsters critical of Israel’s treatment of the Palestinians while their elders say such protests are harmful to Israel. In response some have joined a “Canary Mission” that maintains profiles of especially troublesome critics and, like the bird song in the coal mine, warns of the danger ahead if present trends continue. A few have even donned a canary suit to make their point. Read more

Muslim Slaves in America

Posted on | January 9, 2019 | No Comments

Muslims are having some trouble entering the United States these days, but there was a time when tens of thousands were enthusiastically welcomed for a permanent stay, no visa needed. These were slaves from Africa who arrived under duress in the 18th and 19th centuries. It’s estimated they made up about 20 percent of all slaves and were often esteemed, even by their owners, for their scholarship and attainments. Read more

Refugees Then and Now

Posted on | January 2, 2019 | No Comments

The some 1,500 migrants now seeking to cross the U.S. border are not particularly welcome, though they are fleeing the cartel violence financed by insatiable American drug consumers. Similarly, in World War II an equal number of Polish refugees trying to find safety in the U.S. were not welcome because they were thought to jeopardize the alliance with communist Russia against the Nazis. Immigration is seldom easy. Read more

Merry Christmas U.S. Senate

Posted on | December 19, 2018 | No Comments

The U.S. Senate has given the country the best possible Christmas present – a bipartisan 56-41 vote to withdraw the U.S. from the calamitous war in Yemen that has led to some 60 thousand deaths and looming starvation and fatal disease for thousands more. The House of Representatives must still approve the bill with chances higher after the Democrats take control in January. Read more

Beware the Nukes

Posted on | December 12, 2018 | No Comments

In the Cold War, U.S. Presidents were not soft on communism, to put it mildly. At the same time, they were well aware – intensely aware – of the danger of nuclear weapons to the planet and did their best to control them. Not so today. There’s a strange nonchalance about nukes in the White House, the Congress, and the media as if somehow they don’t matter so much. What’s going on? Read more

Who Rules the Border?

Posted on | November 28, 2018 | No Comments

In the current uproar, immigrants of the caravan are pitted against U.S. Border Patrol agents and U.S. troops. Unseen and largely ignored by the media are those who will ultimately determine the outcome; namely, the drug cartels who virtually control the entire border and most of Mexico for that matter.

Thai Time

Like Thai food? If so, stop by Basil Garden in Palm City, Florida, where a Guatemalan chef and his Thai associate will serve you fare worthy of that Southeast Asian country.  They came to America from far distant parts of the globe, met, married, persevered and now own two restaurants in what can only be called an immigration success story.
