What's Under the Surface?
is an old saying among the Germans: “Ich
will man wissen wie die Fische pissen. Unter dem Wasser sieht man es nicht uber
dem Wasser tun sie es nicht.” (I would like to know how fish urinate.
Under the water it cannot be seen and above the water they do not do it).
This is how it is with numerous people and we can see this so clearly
with the politicians. On the surface
they bring out the most positive things abut themselves as well as their
accomplishments as well as future accomplishments “for all the people all of
the time,” a feat that is
impossible to do. Underneath it all
are the facts: There is no way to satisfy all of the constituents, the rich, the
poor, and those in between. People
are in varying stages of their lives. They
all have common human needs. They
have different habits, different wishes, different experiences, different
parents, different religions or no religions, they are of different ages,
different surroundings, have differing world views, and much more.
politicians have one goal. They want
to win, come what may! They will
verbally express what they believe their constituents want to hear. They will
damn their opponent and will say the most heinous things about him in order to
enhance themselves. They will do wonders and “eliminate cucumbers.”
We can so clearly see it in this year's presidential election.
Our incumbent has ruined our economy.
He has created billions of dollars of debts by giving stimulus
packages/money to corporations that were incapable of rescuing themselves.
He created debts for the citizens that will have to be paid by those who
pay their taxes and generations thereafter.
Excluded are the users and those who do not want to work; those
pretending disabilities and are behaving like infants who suck money, sometimes
alcohol, instead of milk. They
can’t work and let the hard working middle class Americans do it for them.
The "generous" socialist/communist demands that all the people
should tighten their proverbial belt, use only small cars, stretch their already
over stretched income and pay taxes and more taxes. He, on the other hand, takes
innumerable trips to foreign countries to enhance his reputation, and denigrates
our country and its citizens by apologizing for our beloved Americans and our
freedoms. He also holds former
presidents and leaders responsible what he has created. “Let freedom ring”
has been forgotten by this man, and his desire is to be the dictator of a
country that was once strong, independent, and envied by many of the countries
and nations of the world. Obama is
at heart a Muslim, although he attended a Christian church where the minister
damned America and painted all Caucasians with the same brush of being
prejudiced against the African race. Obama
uses the “race card” incessantly, as does the First Lady, who publicly
declared that she hated America until Barack became president.
the majority of the Jewish people have identified with Obama and his preachings.
Because we are a minority, they have erroneously joined his camp of
pitiful minorities. In reality, we
have nothing in common with them except the minority status.
Unlike the majority of the Afro Americans, we have worked hard, have
accomplished. We have had among our
people Jonas Salk, Albert Einstein, Oppenheimer, Szilard, Teller and many more.
The few that escaped the gas ovens during the Holocaust did not use the
hardships to let their new nation support them.
They worked hard and used no excuses.
They did not pity themselves, but unlike those who were the descendants
of slaves, the Jews through their efforts and labor became independent.
We do not use guns to prove a point.
We use our energy and our mental
strength to accomplish! Let us not
identify with those who would destroy us because we have “rachmones” (pity).
