    Rare combo of insightful, witty humor and drawings that capture the personalities of the subject. A great political satirist.

  • hilarious i was laughing so hard in my cubicle at work

  • The Tea Party is not a political party nor is looking to form a third political party any time soon, as stated on their web site but we as Florida Whigs, will be, upon election that third party to which we call the conscience of the other two, in forming a bond to the Red, White and Blue. Reforming all political parties and government so that the core principles of our Founding Fathers become, once again, the foundation upon which America stands. I, Gary A. Anderson, do here by so intend to test the waters and am looking for funding to Endorsements as I am an Exploratory Candidate for the US Senate, Florida as a Florida Whig Party Representative.
    I am Proud to live in North Port Florida. I am proud to resident in the Great State of Florida and I am proud to be an American. I tell all I meet, in this country, yours and mine; you can do whatever you want, all you have to do is try. I maybe disabled but I am not dead. I may not have the millions or even the thousands but too I run because I can. As an Exploratory Candidate I am Testing the Waters to see, if I can raise enough awareness within our great state and enough to get on the ballot. Those to whom I may be running against may be of wealthy individuals but money does not win elections, votes do; money just makes it easier to get the word out.
    I am up for a fight! Putting the feet to the fire with regards to numbers. Education and Health care are big issues to our state and unless your on the receiving end, how do you know what is best for me or you? As an elected official, you must follow to what the people of Florida want, not to what the Government wants. They are into our fisheries, health care, education, what we can or cannot believe in and I say enough is enough! I Want No More! We are sliding more and more away from the Free Market in Florida advertising dollars because the FDA wants our children protected from unapproved advertisements, our Federal Government does not want? Since when did the Feds tell the States what to do? By following rules set by NOAA and its Czars and Councils, our Commercial and recreational fishing fleets are floundering in our waters. Championed by NOAA administrator Dr. Jane Lubchenco, catch shares and sector management cut the capacity of the fishing fleet dramatically to trickle down economics, only can show how we will lose millions if not billions in tourist dollars to seafood exports because of old rules set by the Federal Government over OUR OWN State waters. Get Out and Stay out; administer your own backyard but stay out of mine and as far as Magnuson-Stevens, it needs a revision to the fullest extent, if not either rewritten or abolished all together. Conservation is as good as you put into it and the ways that NOAA is reading the rules, they need to go back to school!

    As of late, I have been reading the The Constitution of the United States. It is a fascinating piece of work and other than a few spellings, it could have been written yesterday. It has some enlightening areas to which I wonder when was the last time Congress read it, not looked at it but actually, word for word read its Amendments of 27, as all the Articles within?
    support principles before party, personality, and profits, with deeds not words, constructive contribution from all members, and Classical Whig movements and political party efforts from coast-to-coast and border to border . Welcome to the 21st Century Florida Whig Party with historically based principles. In Kind Pol. Adv. For Gary A. Anderson, By Gary A. Anderson Exploratory Senate Committee 2012

    Graves of Jewish Pirates in Jamaica Give Caribbean Tourists Taste of Little-Known History

    Tour operators are calling attention to Jamaica’s little-known Jewish heritage by arranging visits to historic Jewish sites on the Caribbean island, including a cemetery where Jewish pirates are buried. A report in Travel and Leisure magazine describes the Hunts Bay Cemetery in Kingston, where there are seven tombstones engraved with Hebrew benedictions and skull and crossbones insignia. According to the report, centuries ago, Jewish pirates sailed the waters of Jamaica and settled in Port Royal. The town, once known as “the wickedest city in the […]

    Filmmaker Eyal Resh Embraces the Challenge of Telling Israel’s Story (VIDEO)

    JNS.org – Telling Israel’s story. It’s the specific title of a short film that Eyal Resh created last year. It’s also the theme behind the 27-year-old Israeli filmmaker’s broader body of work. The widely viewed “Telling Israel’s Story” film—directed by Resh for a gala event hosted by the Times of Israel online news outlet—seemingly begins as a promotional tourism video, but quickly evolves to offer a multilayered perspective. “I want to tell you a story about a special place for me,” a young woman whispers […]

    Israel Geeks Out: Science, Art and Tech Event Embodies Jewish State’s ‘DNA’

    JNS.org – The entrance to Jerusalem’s Sacher Park was transformed from April 25-27 by a fire-breathing robotic dragon, which flailed its arms and attempted to take flight. The robot, a signature feature at Jerusalem’s first-ever “Geek Picnic,” was one of more than 150 scientific amusements available for the public to experience. This particular dragon was designed by students from Moscow’s Art Industrial Institute in conjunction with the Flacon design factory, said Anatasia Shaminer, a student who helped facilitate the display.

    The Syrian Virgin (REVIEW)

    The Syrian Virgin, by Zack Love. CreateSpace, 2015. The Syrian Virgin, by Zack Love, is a very interesting novel. Equally a political and romantic thriller, at times a real page-turner, it gets you intimately involved in the dire situation in today’s Syria, as well as in the romantic entanglements of its mostly New York-based characters — whose entanglements just might determine the fate of that dire situation in Syria. Along the way it introduces a really important idea that somehow […]

    Unpacking the Nagorno-Karabakh Conflict and Its Ripple Effect on Israel’s Region

    JNS.org – Aside from Israel itself, those with a vested interest in the Jewish state are accustomed to tracking developments related to Middle East players such as Iran, Syria, Jordan and Egypt. But much global attention has recently focused on the Caucasus region at the Europe-Asia border, specifically on the suddenly intensified violence between Azerbaijan and Armenia in the mountainous Nagorno-Karabakh area of western Azerbaijan. The Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, while not taking place in Israel’s immediate neighborhood, does have what one scholar called […]

    New Documentary Explores Holocaust Humor, Role That Laughter Played in Death Camps

    Holocaust humor and the role that laughter played in the lives of Jews during World War II are the focus of a documentary that made its world premiere on Monday at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City. In The Last Laugh, first- and second-generation survivors, as well as famous Jewish and non-Jewish comedians, discuss their thoughts on when joking about the death camps is appropriate or taboo. “Nazi humor, that’s OK. Holocaust humor, no,” Jewish comedic giant, actor and filmmaker Mel Brooks says in the film. “Anything I […]

    Tragedy Culminates in ‘Celebration,’ Says Israeli Author Who Lost Son to Terror

    JNS.org – Sherri Mandell’s life was devastated on May 8, 2001, when her 13-year-old son Koby was murdered by terrorists on the outskirts of the Israeli Jewish community of Tekoa. Yet Mandell not only shares the story of her loss, but also celebrates the lessons she has learned from tragedy. Indeed, “celebrate” is this Israeli-American author’s word choice. Her second book, The Road to Resilience: From Chaos to Celebration (Toby Press), came out earlier this year. The lesson: in every celebration, there is […]
