Spa 1.2 Combining Modern Living in Traditional Jerusalem

A unique and prestigious residential project in now being built in Mekor Haim Street in Jerusalem.



Carny Nation

The Democrats have built themselves a pyramid scheme of Babel and it's fools, suckers and marks all the way down. This is their Carny Nation and it only sustains itself by demanding greater levels of stupidity from its followers.

The grandchildren of Carny Nation will die in the streets, just as they do in their own home countries, but for now their future grandparents know that a baby buys a pair of shoes, 350 dollar Nike LeBron X’s, and that a vote for the Democrats will keep them from having to work or route them into nice government jobs with big benefits and easy hours. And when it all comes crashing down and their children are crying for food, because 100 billion dollar eggs are hard to come by; they will never blame themselves, instead they will blame the people they were scamming all these years, rather than the scammers who scammed them.

But of course Carny Nation is more than just food stamps and welfare checks. It’s green windmills turning slowly in deserts with no wind. It’s banks licking their lips at carbon taxes and consultants lining up to consult on everything from diversity to sustainability to intangibility. They are higher up on the scam pole, but like their van brethren, they’re still scammers who don’t realize that in the end they are the ones being scammed. Their children won’t die in the streets, but their bank accounts will.

Fools come in all shapes and sizes, in all races, religions and bank account sizes. Dumb isn’t measured by degrees or IQ points. Dumb people can absorb a lot of knowledge and spit it back. They can even discuss it incessantly in their best Word-a-Day language skills. The difference between dumb and smart does not come down to literacy or being able to juggle isosceles triangles/ Memory is a skill and most people can learn something if they really want to and have the proper background for it. The difference between smart and dumb is the difference between knowing what’s real and what isn’t.

Intelligence is a bunch of brain cells packed by a few lines of DNA into a cranium. Those are mental skills and they come in handy when tackling Algebra or studying the history of the Mayans. King Solomon, that ancient chief executive of a kingdom despised by Carny Nation, wasn’t talking about learning as intelligence, but as wisdom. Wisdom isn’t just knowledge, it’s understanding that knowledge by drawing the right conclusions. The search for wisdom is the search for those right conclusions.

Fools are often very clever. Some have enormously high IQs and office walls packed with so many degrees that there is no room for a window. And they are still fools because they have no ability to draw the right conclusions. Knowledge is cheap. Your computer has access to more of it than all the wise men of history put together could ever dream of. Intelligence is a genetic gift. Wisdom is what you acquire with both or without either. It is the right conclusions that we draw about life from living it.

Intelligent fools are a Zimbabwean dollar a dozen and the Zimbabwean dollar doesn’t buy a whole lot. Carny Nation 2012 Forward to the America of the Super Future on horses and bayonets of irony and binders full of memes was powered by clever, intelligent, technocratic and even cunning fools. And above them all was our own King Fool, our Scammer-in-Chief, our Nigerian Prince, who like all scammers is passing the time scamming us while unable to realize that he is the one being scammed and the time will come, when he will fall beneath the bus under whose wheels he has hurled so many.

“There is no future for those who slander the Prophet of Islam,” our Nigerian Prince proclaimed, as part of his coverup of the murder of four Americans, left to die by his government. A coverup that has resulted in the first political prisoner in generations sitting in a cell. But there is a future for those who disdain Mohammed, that primal scammer who told his followers that they would have an endless supply of virgin girls to rape in paradise if they killed enough of his enemies and stole their stuff in the here-and-now. There is however no future for fools. There is no future for Carny Nation.

The Democrats have built themselves a pyramid scheme of Babel and it’s fools, suckers and marks all the way down. This is their Carny Nation and it only sustains itself by demanding greater levels of stupidity from its followers. The worse the storm grows, the dumber and trashier the base of its pyramid grows as vaccination against sudden conclusions from outside.

  1. A bit over the top but nevertheless, Mr. Greenfield's frustration and distress is plaintive and indicative of what many are feeling after the debacle of Nov. 6th.

    The Democrats do require a dumbed down electorate, have been assiduously working toward that goal for decades and the solution will take much more than adjusting the conservative message. There was nothing wrong with the conservative message. There is something drastically wrong with the ability of the average American voter to discern fact from hype, journalistic integrity from blatant bias and to make accurate assessments of character.

    To any patriotic American paying attention it's been obvious since Obama first emerged as a serious contender for the presidency that there was very little known about him. He was a good looking, well dressed, well educated, and very accomplished orator. He was also interracial from a white mother and black father, a factor whose historical significance was not lost on a society perpetually guilt ridden with regard to racial inequality. But much of his background and personal history was then and remains to this day, a secret or surrounded by unproven, unanswered, suspicious allegations and those he was most closely associated with, some considered his mentors, the Reverend Wright, Edward Said, Rashid Khalidi, Bill Ayers, Bernadine Dohrn, Frank Marshall Davis, etc. were a collection of people with pro communist, radical anti-American, anti-Israeli sentiments.

    After four or five years in the public spotlight ask the typical man or woman on the American street about any of this and be met with a smile, a blank stare or a curt, dismissive opinion about a dark place where your head might be at. No, remessaging is putting a bandaid on a hemorrhaging artery. America is unaware that it is bleeding to death. How to make it aware? How to get past all the firmly entrenched, anti-capitalist, anti American, anti-wealthy, anti-Wall Street, anti-conservative attitudes cast like concrete in the minds of those who could vote to give this President four more years; to do what?

    Einstein's definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over, expecting a different result. By that definition a little over half the electorate is insane.

    OH right, GREENFIELD, BUSH and CO never LIED to the whole world about non-existant WMD's in IRAQ, causing hundreds of thousands of deaths of IRAQI and AFGHANI innocent civilians while devastating their infrastructures. What a HYPOCRITE you are. And what about the lies BUSH and CO spewed about "we don't torture"? What about secret renditions and ILLEGAL MASS DOMESTIC SPYING programs? Are you missing half a brain or more? THERE IS NO TWO PART SYSTEM in the USA—it's all a fake democracy, secretly ruled by a despotic rich elite, under cover of the so-called "Nat'l Security State". Do your homework.

The dumb and dumber crowd…THE MORON MAJORITY has spoken(a continuing loss for AMERIKA's MORAL MAJORITY.)…. and it's NOT good…(and the EMPIRE continues on it's FiSCAL and SOCIAL decline!)
