A Country of Free Men or Free Things?

There's a big difference between a free country and a country of free things. You can have one or the other, but not both. A free country isn’t obsessed with free riders; only a country of free things obsesses over making everyone pay their fair share to the people who want the free things. The rugged individualism of Colonial America has given way to stifling crowds, co-dependent on each other, clutching at each other’s wallets, crying, “Take from him and give to me.”

The Cult of America

In my family alone, except for my brother, all of my cousins and second cousins married out of the faith – all of them. Finished. Kaput. The end of the line. After 5000 years of clinging to being Jewish, generation after generation, through times of harsh and often murderous oppression, the candle was snuffed out in the love boat of America.

Guard Our Freedom

I oppose the proposed Biometric Law because of how easily it can chip away at a citizen's liberty, without him feeling a thing.

In Israel, Economic Concerns Mount – But Who Will Benefit Politically?

Demonstrations last summer that protested exorbitant housing prices, high costs for basic necessities and growing income inequality managed to mobilize an unprecedented number of Israelis. Still, even if socioeconomic issues become a central issue in the upcoming elections, it is not clear that parties such as Labor or Meretz will be its beneficiaries.

Some Thoughts On Israel’s Housing Crisis

Who caused Israel's housing shortage? The Left. That sounds demagogic, but here's the reason why:

Enough Already, Mr. President: Time to Start Treating Israel Like the Ally It Is

Let's remember the facts here. Jerusalem is hardly some far-off outpost. It is the capital of a sovereign nation that happens to be our strongest ally in the Middle East and perhaps the world. And this housing decision was months in the works as part of a transparent process that is followed by dozens and dozens of building proposals each year.

Spinning History

"Big Town Chronicles/The Daily News History of Modern New York" is a regular feature in the New York Daily News and often provides interesting, nostalgic glimpses back into New York City's recent past.
