Since America is Going Down The Drain, Israel Should Let Go and Thrive

Unfortunately Israel, the government and too many ordinary citizens have this fixation with the United States, as if it's some sort of great, strong, smart idol.  I honestly don't think it's all that it's cracked up to be.

I suggest reading Caroline Glick's latest article which explains why the "Kerry Plan" is dangerously horrendous.
Kerry has proffered us security arrangements, which he claims will protect Israel from aggression for the long haul. They will do this, he argues, despite the fact that his plan denies the Jewish state physically defensible borders in the framework of a peace deal with the PLO.
There are several serious problems with Kerry’s arrangements. But in the context of Kerry’s repeated claims that his commitment to Israel’s security is unqualified, their most glaring flaws are rooted in their disregard for all the lessons we have learned over the past two decades.... please read on...
I've also been following Seraphic Secret's posts about Obamacare.

From the Dec. 14, NY Times:
Many in New York’s professional and cultural elite have long supported President Obama’s health care plan. But now, to their surprise, thousands of writers, opera singers, music teachers, photographers, doctors, lawyers and others are learning that their health insurance plans are being canceled and they may have to pay more to get comparable coverage, if they can find it.
“We are the Obama people,” said Camille Sweeney, a New York writer and member of the Authors Guild. Her insurance is being canceled, and she is dismayed that neither her pediatrician nor her general practitioner appears to be on the exchange plans. What to do has become a hot topic on Facebook and at dinner parties frequented by her fellow writers and artists.
“I’m for it,” she said. “But what is the reality of it?”
So: Ms. Sweeney is one of the proud Obama zealots. She is for ObamaCare. Though she has no idea what ObamaCare is. But now that the ghastly consequences of Democrat ideology are bearing fruit, a light bulb has appeared over Ms. Sweeney’s head with a metaphysical thought bubble that reads: “What is reality?”
This is known as a liberal being mugged by reality. continued...
As I've written many times, I'm so glad to be living in Israel where our medical care policy, though possibly not perfect (as if anything really is) is certainly a lot better than what Americans are discovering they "ordered."

Israelis, think about it..  Do you really feel safe trusting the Americans for our security?

We middle-aged folk, especially the women, are the feistiest. We have been around the block enough that we can't easily be charmed or bought, and we haven't reached the near-terminal stage where we no longer care.
