This is not the time to talk of gun control! About the same day as Newtown, school children were slashed in China; drones killed women in Pakistan, Children were abducted in Africa…If the Palestinians gave up their guns there would be no more war; if the Israelis did, there would be no more Israel…Teachers should have guns, too…

My congenitally ill younger son has been on the fast track to die. And after years of battling a stormy sea too deep, being swept further away from the foggy shores of medical miracles, my wife finally stole his challenged … Continue reading

Be peaceful, be courteous, obey the law, respect everyone; but if someone puts his hand on you, send him to the cemetery. You see how simple the law should be — for animal, mineral or vegetable…

When somebody I barely know asks – especially when it sounds like a regal, imperious demand — what do I do, I often reply, quite earnestly: I sell white women in Africa… And that, as they say, is often the … Continue reading

Promises are made to be broken…The only thing a man can both give and keep is his word. His word is his truth, his honor…his everything… The first casualty of any war is truth… After that it is all madness… Elections are war…

Folks who don’t know why America is the Land of Promise should be here during an election campaign. Elections are supposedly when people find out what politicians stand for. But it is more likely when politicians find out what people … Continue reading

Sometimes even a cop does something right… Even a ‘dumb Polack’ like Philadelphia Police Officer John Smyl. He claims he was only doing his job. If he was, what he does should be set as procedure in a policeman’s training manual…

Some folks like to insist there are only steers and queers in Texas. And you don’t look like no steer. Well, no doubt from G-d’s far away aerie we all look more than a little queer — whether we are single, married or divorced…Odd as that may seem to some folks…even if you’re asexual…

We come into the world with nothing and when we leave we have nothing. In between there’s a lot of stoopid people robbing, pillaging, stealing and misspending our tax dollars…And boy, do I feel stoopid.

A Chinese prostitute once promised: I make you harder than Chinese math. Yeah, I got schtooped, but at least I got what I was paying for – unlike the lies and lying bastards running us deeper into recession…

I stopped in one of those fancy organic supermarkets, during one of my recent nightly forays, to get a couple of apples. As in two – no more, no few. Apples, the source of original sin. The temptation that sunk … Continue reading
