Duncan, One of my downfalls is Youtube and music. I check out a great video and then the sidebar suggests other vidoes you may enjoy. So I watch another. And another. Then 30 minutes have passed. Then an hour. So many great clips. So little time :)"
Catarina, "legitimate refugees are not a threat." True, but the title of refugee has long been a guise for terrorists to cross borders with devious purpose. America: Two Iraqi refugees living in Bowling Green, Ky., have been arrested and charged with violating federal terrorism laws — allegedly plotting to send missiles and other weapons to insurgents to kill American soldiers abroad. Waad Ramadan Alwan, 30, and Mohanad Shareef Hammadi, 23, are accused of conspiring to send Stinger missiles, cash, sniper rifles and rocket-propelled grenade launchers from the United States to al Qaeda and other jihadists in Iraq. Great Britain: More than a few of the plotters of the London bus and subway bombings were refugees granted political asylum and some of the most visible preachers of Jihad in Britain were also let in as refugees and asylum seekers. As long as just a few make it through, the world will continue to view refugees as threats. Rivkah "
D- I think the important thing to remember is that the troops are our boys and girls, sons and daughter, mothers and fathers. They are not policy-makers. They don't declare war, they simply carry out orders and risk their lives while doing so. On their return, whether we agree or disagree with a war, they deserve unconditional respect and gratitude...and any and all help available to transition back to life, family and employment."
Hi Adam, Very insightful article. I received the notification for your package today and picked it up from the post office. I didn't open it but saw it was sent from Beit Shemesh...obviously the package Yoni said you alluded to in an email a while back. Anyway, I will bring it to the hospital when I go to visit later (Yoni is in day 12 or something like that after having his tonsils removed; because of his situation they are keeping him in until the site is completely closed to avoid any more infection). He's doing well. All best! "
Bloomberg (July 8, 2011): Financial Crisis, Rising Unemployment Spur Increase in Suicides, Researchers Say"Duncan, I love the theme from M*A*S*H but so much for the reasoning that suicide is painless. As for unattached people, it probably is a major factor. Lack of a support system must be terribly painful. I had a friend who hung himself in college. The life of the party. Friends and girlfriends everywhere. Great grades. Nice sports car. A family with oodles of money. In his final note, he stated that he felt all alone. I guess it also brings up questions like Curt Cobain. He had fame and fortune, yet something in his life made him so unhappy and gave him the feeling that he had to end his life. I guess in this economy and the current job market, too many people see themselves under a black cloud. No way to pay bills, collection agenices calling 24/7, foreclosures, no prospects for jobs on the horizon. And they see no way out except to... It's very sad."
