Congress Must Delay Netanyahu's Speech
Breaking with longstanding protocol, GOP Speaker of the House John Boehner recently invited Israel's Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, to address a joint session of Congress without proper consultation with the White House or his Democratic colleagues.
There's no issue with Israel's leader addressing America's legislators. In fact, we welcome it. But the timing here--weeks before Israeli elections, and as Congress is debating legislation (aggressively backed by Netanyahu) that could impact our sensitive negotiations with Iran--couldn't be worse, and we need your help in making that clear.
Every Member of Congress has a responsibility to let Speaker Boehner know that this invitation is inappropriate, and that the speech must be delayed.

"...As in many cases in the past, Netanyahu’s attempts to confront Obama on the president’s home court boomeranged. Once again Netanyahu ended up on the losing side. Having no meetings with any senior administration officials, with an agenda that has turned temporarily irrelevant, and in a situation where his trip could cause more damage than good, perhaps Netanyahu would do better to stay at home and focus on his election campaign."

As long as Obama is in the White House, he has no intention of meeting Netanyahu. If reelected, the Israeli PM may find himself abandoned and...

The comedian Louis C.K. said in his controversial monologue on SNL, “I have mild racism. It’s benign. It’s not aggressive.”
He goes on to say, “Here’s another example of mild racism. Say I’m at a hospital and the doctor comes in to treat me and the doctor is from China or India I’ll think, ‘Well good, good. More of that.’ It’s very mild racism.”
I was at the Playland a few days ago with my 5yo son. Another boy came up to my son who was playing with the video game screen hanging on the wall. The boy demanded that my son move because the boy wanted a turn. My son said “no”. The boy then decided to reach for my son’s face, grip his cheek and claw down his face making it bleed. My son came to me telling me and pointing at the boy.
Now let me just say that I am reasonable person, a kind person, an understanding person. I would never hurt a child. But, I had to calm and restrain my urge to strangle the little creep that just hurt my boy.
I felt a feeling that I am a little ashamed of – to hurt another person. We all do from time to time, but as all reasonable people do, we restrain those feelings and behave peacefully.
What exactly is our definition of “peaceful behavior”? Usually it is at least what the law says it is. Often is also what social standards say it is in the community that we live in. All too frequently it is what Hollywood shows us as “cool”.
As we observe and consider the sport-like process that is our presidential campaigning, we have to ask ourselves what damage is caused by leaders that practice and condone hate speech? What happens when they defend it as simply “saying what we’re all thinking”. What happens when hate speech is considered the antidote to w.....
