Linking Northern and Central NJ, Bronx, Manhattan, Westchester and CT

The Canadian system of government is quite different from the American one. One does not really vote for the candidate. Instead one would vote for the Party. For instance, Irwin Cotler, who ran for the Liberal Party in our riding (our district) was our local candidate. For those of us who wished to vote for the Conservative Party whose leader is Stephen Harper, the Prime Minister of Canada, it meant voting against Irwin Cotler. Irwin, known to many of us as a great champion of human rights and a very involved Jew, always won in our riding because Jews tend to vote Liberal. Everyone knows that Stephen Harper is Israel’s closest ally. He enthusiastically takes unpopular stands among his colleagues defending the State of Israel. He is a rare and devoted politician to all that the Jewish State stands for.

It is well known that in the United States, Jews over the years have chosen to vote as Democrats. To this day, there are those who still defend the stand that President Barack Obama takes on various issues. How anyone could appreciate what he is doing to the State of Israel by suggesting that his “Iranian Deal” would be safe boggles our mind.

As the race for the next presidential election begins to heat up and we all know that Mr. Obama will shortly be out of the picture, many candidates in the Democratic Party are thinking of throwing their hats into the race. Hillary Clinton, the kind, loving and forgiving wife of the former president seems to be leading in the polls. So far, despite the fact that she seems to have “not told the truth” about her email accounts and everything that went on with Benghazi, the public seems willing to turn a blind eye to her lies.

In the Republican Party there are now many, many candidates stepping forward. In fact, as of this writing, there are 33 declared candidates. Even more relevant is that as of several days ago the renowned Limberbutt, a 30-pound tabby cat from Louisville, KY, has been entered into the race. This situation continues to become more and more bizarre. Mordechai’s favorite candidate would be Dr. Ben Carson who unfortunately does not stand a chance. Nina likes him a lot as well as he saved her from getting a ticket last year in Parksville, NY. She had stopped at a stop sign on our way to Camp HASC and a police car pulled her over claiming that she had made only a “rolling stop.” He took her ID and went to sit in his car during the frustrating time that one waits for the officer to come out and give his verdict. He appeared at her window, noticed the book by Dr. Ben Carson that Mordechai was reading on his lap and immediately said that he was a huge fan of his as well. Result? No ticket!

Two votes for Ben Carson!

After perusing the list several times and watching “The Donald” rant and rave at his various political stops, we have decided that maybe we could also throw our hats into the ring. We would run as a team—one has much experience with domestic politics and internal relationships and the other would have an edge in analyzing the psychological state of world powers when making critical decisions. One or two hours of therapy might help them see the truth and the valid reasons of why they are making ridiculous decisions.

The question boils down to what type of hats to throw into the ring. For Mordechai should it be black, brown grey or blue, and for Nina a snood, a beret, a felt hat or even more interesting: what would they think of a sheitel?
