Los Angeles for Rosh Hashanah

I was Sacramento Bound. Change of plans. So instead I was Fresno Bound. Change of plans. Then I had to decide whether to go to Malibu or Woodland Hills.

I ended up going to Torrance.

After much metaphorical traveling and actual non-traveling (for once), today the Tygrrrr Express is actually home inĀ  Los Angeles.

Tonight begins the holy holiday of Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year.

I will be taking Saturday off with a pre-written column, and visiting sick patients in the hospital.

The holiday ends Sunday night, which means that my Week 2 NFL Recap will be delayed.

Unlike many, I am more than aware that the blogosphere will do just fine without me this weekend.

I am not somebody who uses the internet to discuss private business. I prefer covering the events of others. Any time I am the focus, this is with much reluctance.

As for my thoughts on this holiday, allow me to be useless as a blogger and keep those private as well.

I normally quote a non-Jewish individual on this holiday.

As John Cougar Mellencamp said, “Time to settle with my neighbor. Time to question my own behavior.”

I have a long way to go before I become the man I want to be. I may never get there.

Even more troubling is that on many days I have no desire to even make the sacrifices required to get there.

I will do what I will do, and that is that.

I wish all the Jews of the world a peaceful Rosh Hashanah.

To everyone else, I wish you solace, tranquility, and peace.

    If Israel falls, the US is doomed. Israel is fighting a war for it’s survival. We in the West, mainly the US, are fighting the same war.

    Let’s be honest this Jewish New Year, The Muslim world is threatening
    in ways the Third Reich never did. Hitler did not have atomic bombs.

    Iran already can manufacture a nuclear warhead. It has 2 missiles capable of reaching our allies, and 250,000 US troops in the M.E.
    It’s latest missile uses solid fuel..making the missile harder to destroy
    upon lauching.

    Russia, our so-ally, signed an agreement to deliver S-300 Missiles
    to Iran. These missiles can target 90 targets..and hit 12 at one time.

    Iran is manufacturing short and medium range missiles, at a blistering pace..

    The US will NOT build missile interceptors in Poland, but is incorporating
    Israeli Arrow Missiles in our defense in Europe. ( Joint US-Israeli project).

    So again, Israel comes to our defense, as it did by destroying the Iraqi and Syrian reactors.

    Can anyone imagine an Iraqi invasion of Kuwait if Saddam had had

    Can anyone imagine Saddam invading Kuwait again..this time
    with WMD..or having it’s surrogates explode a WMD in one of our

    Thank G-d for Israel. Thank G-d for Bush..during this high holiday.

    BTW, Christmas is not allowed to be observed openly in many Muslim countries.

    While back in Washington. D.C., the moron Obama still wants to
    engage, talk, use diplomacy with Iran. In Tehran..hundreds of thousands
    said, “Death to Israel”., and “Death to the US”.

    Other millions, showing resolve against Ahmad and his maniac bosses,
    were left with no allied..while 3 US aircraft carrier groups are in the Persian Gulf.

    Shame on Obama and Pelosi and Reid, and Axelrod..

    Shame, shame, shame.

    Remember in 2010 folks, who lost Iran.
