When I was in Israel I recall reading that Shavuot was the most important of all the Jewish Holidays, for without the giving of the Torah, there would be no Jewish nation and no Jews today.

So please, dear reader, if something offends thine eye, mind your own f* business, please? Change the channel, switch the station, walk away, avert your eyes, or blog about it if you must, but stop asking for every single host that offends you to be fired.

"If all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail." Well, I started to hot glue everything onto hair combs.

Perhaps Rosie's fat, loud and stupid because of genetic reasons, perhaps she can't help it.
The Six terrorists who planned to attack our soldiers at Fort Dix are not to blame for their hatred of this country. We are. Yes, you and I and anyone else who allows Mosques in our neighborhoods that preach hatred of Americans, Christians and Jews.
