Almost as Good as Your Dog

If you can start the day without caffeine,

If you can get going without pep pills,

If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,

If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles,

If you can eat the same food everyday and be grateful for it,

If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time,

If you can overlook it when those you love take it out on

you when, through no fault of yours, something goes wrong,

If you can take criticism and blame without resentment,

If you can ignore a friend’s limited education and never correct him,

If you can resist treating a rich friend better than a poor friend,

If you can face the world without lies and deceit,

If you can conquer tension without medical help,

If you can relax without liquor,

If you can sleep without the aid of drugs,

If you can say honestly that deep in your heart you have no

prejudice against creed, color, religion or politics,

Then, my friend, you are almost as good as your dog!

Tax on the Living

Carbon Dioxide is one of the end products as a result of the metabolism of all living creatures plant and animal.

So the supporters of the ETS / Carbon Tax are lying when they say it is a tax on the polluters. It is not. It is a tax on the living. It is a tax on life.

Don’t you remember the Mars Explorations by NASA? They were looking for evidence of life and particularly traces of water and carbon dioxide which is incidently why these are the two major greenhouse gases. It is evidence of life.

And because there are rich and poor people in our community, this tax on living is in effect a tax on the poor to feed the wealthy. And it is the wealthy that want it.

300 Fake Tombstones Removed So Far at Jerusalem Muslim Cemetery

300 Fake Tombstones Removed So Far at Jerusalem Muslim Cemetery

The Jerusalem Municipality has thus far removed 300 false tombstones that were built in the course of the past few weeks at the Mamilla Muslim cemetery in central Jerusalem. The tombs were built by Muslim elements who took advantage of the fact that the Jerusalem Municipality’s Health Department granted them a permit to clean up and fix existing tombstones. Instead of just cleaning graves, however, the Muslims hired workers to try and grab land from the adjoining Independence Park (Gan HaAtzmaut).

After the land-grab hoax was discovered by Arutz Sheva, the Jerusalem Municipality filed a complaint with the police and immediately put a stop to all work at the site. On Monday this week, a court rejected the Muslims’ request for a temporary order against the Municipality and granted the Municipality permission to remove the fictitious new tombstones.

Each new tombstone is dismantled only after an expert from the Antiquities Authority inspects it and confirms that it is indeed a new tombstone.

The new tombstones had no graves or human remains beneath them. Plastic bottles, cigarette packs and irrigation pipes were found beneath some of them. Others were built atop a sewage pipe.

I was just in Jerusalem last 2 weeks .
I saw this hoax while in progress.
I took pictures of what was going on.
They create Facts on the ground.
