Born to Need to Run

Born to Need to Run

For once, a tune describing the true monstrosity of Gov. Christie’s crimes against the people: I shudder at what motorists my age were forced to endure by his spitefulness: hours upon hours without access to a bathroom.

A salute to the boss, played here by himself and by Jimmy Fallon a couple nights ago on the Jimmy Fallon show.

As I recall, Maimonides was big on not holding it: when there’s a conflict between dignified behavior and the urge to empty one’s bladder, Maimonides says foggedabout dignity, think of your health.

Of course, back in old Cairo it was probably easier to find a secluded corner where one could pursue one’s health in peace. Much harder to follow Jewish halacha when you’ve been stuck in your car on the GW Bridge for many hours, due to the vindictive governor’s revenge against the mayor of Fort Lee.

Why is it every time I pick a Republican to support he turns out to be an idiot, or a bully, or a cheater? Actually, that’s what happens every time I pick a democrat, too…

So, without further ado, here are Bruce Springsteen & Bruce Springsteen with the new version of “Born to Run.”

No pun intended.

    Well, at least it wasn't "I've got the run and I'm stuck in Gov. Chris Christie GW Bridge New Jersey traffic Jam"

  2. Uromysitisis is no laughing matter, Yori.

  3. Stuart Kaufman says:

    In backing Christie you are backing someone with a northern NJ base substantially headquartered at the Jersey City mosque where 911 was planned. Many of his appointees(including judges) are supporters of Islamist causes and of organizations that have been identified as terrorist conduits. When questioned about these connections, Christie's belligerence intimidates his questioners into silence. This is a guy who is bad for the United States, the State of Israel and the Jewish people. He is a bad guy. If you want to support someone, support Huckabee. He is the real deal.

Yishai and Malkah talk about Pesach preparations in the Fleisher house, baking matzah in Beit El by hand, and getting the house super kosher while staying happily married! Then we learn some deep Middle East lessons from Yishai’s adventure collecting a package at an “Arab post office” in Israel. Finally a wonderful gift from a […]

It’s stories like this that make one lose faith in the police and legal system. (Video in Hebrew, but the attack is understandable in any language). While sitting at a red light in Bnei Brak, an Israeli driver was pulled over by the police for talking on a phone. The policeman then gave the driver […]

Yishai is joined by founder and director of Future Leaders for Israel, Daniel Ackerman. Together, they talk about Ackerman’s background and also making Israel advocacy personal.

There’s something truly inspiring about Haredi soldiers, who willingly choose to participate and give back to Israel, despite their community’s pressure to not join the army, and all the while, not compromising an inch on their religious observance. Here’s a video of a swearing-in ceremony for the unit. That’s an Asifa that is a true […]

Yishai broadcasts from the 2014 Future Leaders For Israel Conference and is joined by conference organizer Ron Krudo and also conference director Rayna Exelbierd.

The video is in Hebrew, but you’ll get the idea even if you don’t understand. Very inspiring. A “Kiddush Hashem”.

A Jerusalem woman is trying to hold on to her umbrella while withdrawing some cash at a Meah Shearim ATM, Sunday, March 9, 2014. The rain appeared out of the blue (which is how rain should), after a warm week that started to feel like summer. Well, it don’t feel like summer no more. Last […]

Rabbi Meir Mazuz (seen visiting a synagogue in Crown Heights, Brooklyn) declared in a public Internet psak that it is legal for a Jew to go up to temple Mount.

Needless to say, Shas, the Haredi Sefardi party, is not happy.

“The only difference between this world and the time of Meshiach is our bondage to the gentile kingdoms.”

Here’s the Israeli Navy boat INS Hanit arriving in Eilat on Saturday, March 8, 2014, after capturing the Klos C, which was carrying dozens of advanced Iranian-supplied weapons made in Syria and intended for Palestinian guerrillas in the Gaza Strip. Here’s Israeli Navy Commander Vice Admiral Ram Rotberg speaking with the INS Hanit soldiers in […]

Pat Condell has a new video out, so, sit back, have fun. By the way, Message to Offended Muslims should not be confused with Message to Off Handed Muslims. Also, I’d love to hear what he has to say about Haredim.

The description that came with this picture says: Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu speaks with American actor Bette Midler during an event at the house of Hollywood producer Arnon Milchan in Hollywood on March 6, 2014. But Bette Midler is not really an actor, she’s a singer who made movies for the LGBT community and […]

We will shut them up in the campuses, we will shut them up in the high schools, we will shut them up at the 92nd St. Y.

An Israeli female soldier (because they’re better at removing babies from their homes) evacuates a baby from a settlement in Judea and Samaria some time in the recent past. I’m thinking, if the baby was angry enough, couldn’t he evacuate in return, right there in her arms? Imagine the same picture, except with a settler […]
