What is the deal with our government?

Our government has to be reformed and restructured from the ground up. I think everyone should be fired and people with compassion should be hired. I was reading on the web a few years back and I came across a tv special named "Lord of the Ants" and it facinated me greatly. It was about a scientist name Edward O. Wilson and he is someone that the world needs to listen to. He stated that the world's entire homeless and starving populations could be feed and housed for around 100 billion dollars… Continue

I want to give a shout-out for a neighbor of mine, Rabbi Malka Drucker from Santa Fe, NM, who has published a new book titled Women and Judaism. Beyond an historical record, her book is a hands-on account of how women have influenced the traditionally patriarchal faith. Rabbi Malka writes of the first Bat Mitzvah, how women keep body, mind, and spirit alive, and maintain as role models for future generations. In addition to leading a…
