At every given moment in your life "The Almighty is telling you, 'Choose life!'"
Imagine how you will enhance your life when you respond, "Yes! I will make a life-enhancing choice right now." Have frequent self-conversations about your decision to "choose life!"
Each moment you make three choices. You choose your thoughts for the moment. You choose the words you say or don't say. You choose the actions you will or won't take.
Choose wisely. It would be wise to ask yourself frequently, "What is a wise thing to think now?" "What is a wise thing to say now?" and, "What is a wise thing to do now?"
The more frequently you purposely ask yourself, "What is a life-enhancing choice now?" the more frequently your mind will spontaneously come up with this question.
The more you think about making life-enhancing choices, the easier it will be for you to think of wiser answers to this question.
Sometimes, a life-enhancing choice is quite obvious. All we need to do is ask ourselves this question and we will know the answer. At other times we might not be so sure. But at least we will be going in the right direction.
This is the blessing of Free choice that G-d who loves us so much gives us!!

Diagnosis of a Mental Disorder Prof. Paul Eidelberg
Diagnosis of a Mental Disorder
Prof. Paul Eidelberg
A mental disorder has crippled Israel. This disorder is rooted in fear, but this fear has yet to be adequately diagnosed.
The idea that fear permeates the Jewish psyche is not new. It is the well-known consequence of two thousand years of statelessness and dispersion, persecution and humiliation, pogroms and holocaust. It is the inevitable result of the world's perennial and deadly hatred of Jews and Judaism.
There is nothing paranoid about this fear. It reflects a somber assessment of a typically hostile world. But this fear has been magnified and rendered pathological by a related fear engendered by the triumph of democracy over Zionism in the mentality of Israel's ruling elites.
That democracy has replaced Zionism as the only justification for the State of Israel has profound, but hitherto unexplored, psychological consequences.
Since 1975, when the UN declared Zionism a form of racism, the legitimacy and respectability of Israel's ruling elites have depended solely on their government's democratic credentials. Despite Israel's miniature size and precarious existence in the Middle East, its ruling elites have been conditioned to pursue policies toward Arabs which makes Israel appear more permissive and egalitarian than democratic America, a continental superpower. The policy of self-restraint vis-à-vis Arab terrorism is the most revealing case in point.
Fear of losing their democratic respectability is the a basic reason why Israeli governments have refrained from crushing the PLO-Palestinian Authority, whose genocidal intentions are manifest to all but fools. But crushing this enemy would make Israel appear as a fascist state, a prospect that terrifies Israel's ruling elites. This compounds their fear of anti-Semitism.
Compounding this dilemma is the Jewish reputation for kindness and mercy. The benevolence of Jews on the one hand, and their having so often been the victims of oppression on the other, tend to inhibit Israel's government from using overwhelming force even against such cruel enemies as the Arab Palestinians—but not against Jews themselves, as witness the government's expulsion of 8,000 Jews from their homes in Gaza—now called "Hamastan," an Islamic despotism
However, when Jews habitually make no distinction between those who are and those who are not worthy of benevolence, they cross the boundary that separates sanity from insanity. What has induced Israel's ruling elites to cross this boundary is Democracy!
Tolerance of violent behavior and leniency in the punishment of such behavior are characteristics of democracy—a mixed blessing. But these characteristics attain pathological levels in Israel, because of the genocidal goal of pronounced both in the Hamas Charter as well as in the Charter of Fatah-led Palestinian Authority.
Israel's inane and insane policy of surrendering strategically vital Jewish land to their implacable enemies should be understood as the consequence of democracy having become the only thing that endows Israel's political and judicial elites with legitimacy and respectability. To safeguard their democratic reputation, they must be more democratic than their American counterparts, which compels them to minimize retaliation against terrorist attacks—even to ignore many of them—and thus make Jewish lives expendable. And this is not all.
Having absorbed the "ethos" of democracy into their psyche, Israel's ruling elites have imbibed the moral and cultural relativism that dominates the democratic mind. Hence they can no longer believe in the absolute justice of Israel's cause. This relativism inhibits Israeli prime ministers from crushing Israel's enemies. To do so would signify Jewish national pride—something Jewish democrats can ill-afford. Jews must be meek. Better to be victims than victors—to prove the Jew's moral superiority!
And so the government must always make unilateral concessions, to the extent of turning over Jewish land to terrorists. Israel's Supreme Court sanctifies such madness and self-immolation by ruling that this land is "occupied territory," that it does not even belongs to the Jews—a position thoroughly refuted by American and Israeli professors of law, and above all in Howard Grief's monumental work The Legal Foundation and Borders of Israel under International Law.
But heaven Heaven forbid that the Jews should stand tall and maintain their God-given right to Eretz Israel! No—this would smack of racism! This would undermine the democratic respectability of Israeli politicians and judges, of academics and journalists. Democracy is their life raft.
This democracy, steeped in moral egalitarianism, has emasculated Israel.

Snowstorm In Chicago Delays Hundreds Of Morning Murders
The city of Chicago is steadily recovering from an overnight snowstorm that delayed hundreds of murders on Saturday and Sunday morning and will likely continue to push numerous homicides across the city drastically behind schedule, public authorities announced. "As we speak, maintenance crews are working diligently to restore public transportation, de-ice roads, and clear back alleyways so that Chicagoans can quickly resume murdering again,"
Department of Streets and Sanitation spokesman Dave Michelson said of the heavy blizzard, which caused numerous homicide cancellations this morning at peak murder times. "Unfortunately, we're backed up by about 35 deadly shootings at the moment, but we hope to restore regular death tolls as soon as possible. We apologize to anyone forced to postpone shootings or other killings today and assure concerned murderers that they will be able to resume slayings by the early afternoon."
At press time, authorities reported that murders were up and running in many parts of the city, with four teenagers already gunned down on Chicago's South Side.
usual attacks on Trump no matter what he does
Donald Trump jetted to his yacht, which was docked off the coast of Italy.
He invited Pope Francis and the press corps on board for a Saturday afternoon cruise.
It was a rather windy day.
The Pope's little hat, his zucchetto, was blown from his head and into the water.
A crewman began lowering a boat to retrieve the zucchetto. Trump told the crewman not to bother.
Trump climbed down the yacht's ladder; walked across the waves, picked up the zucchetto; walked back to the yacht and handed it to the Pope.
The Pope and the press corps were amazed! Donald Trump could actually walk on water!
Speculation immediately began as to how ABC, CNN, NBC, The Washington Post and New York Times would report this miraculous event to the rest of the world.
The next morning the New York Times headline read . . . .
DONALD TRUMP CAN'T SWIM!!!

Women's March Organizer Recently Met Ex-Hamas Operative, Has Family Ties To Terror Group Photo of Chuck Ross Chuck Ross Read more: http://dailycaller.com/2017/01/21/womens-march-organizer-recently-met-ex-hamas-operative-has-family-ties-to-terror-group/#ixzz4WT3CxjjR
Linda Sarsour, one of the organizers behind Saturday's Women's March, being held in Washington, D.C., was recently spotted at a large Muslim convention in Chicago posing for pictures with an accused financier for Hamas, the terrorist group.
Sarsour, the head of the Arab American Association of New York and an Obama White House "Champion of Change," was speaking at last month's 15th annual convention of the Muslim American Society and Islamic Circle of North America.
While there, she posed for a picture with Salah Sarsour, a member of the Islamic Society of Milwaukee and former Hamas operative who was jailed in Israel in the 1990s because of his alleged work for the terrorist group.
Salah Sarsour, who is also a board member of American Muslims for Palestine, served as a bodyguard of sorts at the convention for Sumeyye Erdogan Bayraktar, the daughter of Turkey's president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
