Anti Mel Gibson Cartoon
Mel Gibson movies were once popular titles in the video store located in my neighbourhood.
Since he decided we are to blame for all the world's problems, we felt it's only fair to blame him (that Rasha!) for all our problems.
The Polish and Russian immigrants don't rent that many movies and thus our boycott was quite successful.
We decided to boycott any movie with him in front or behind the camera.
The poor owner (Non Jewish), who's a nice guy, offers to sell all video's/dvd's starring (or rather disgracing ) that evil personage at.3.30$
Saw this cartoon and thought it was brillaint!

Credit where Credit is Due!
The upcoming, technically christian, but in all fairness basically world holiday is already on every billboard, in every magazine and in many very enjoyable made for TV movies.
I have no objections against any religious holiday as long as its spirit is not anti-semitic.
In fact strolling and looking at the manifold and beautiful christmas decorations is very pleasant and relaxing.
Yet there’s something that definitely bothers me about this holiday.
Hard working parents, spend hours looking for the right gift, stand in line during what is considered the most hectic shopping season of the whole year, lovingly take the gifts home and hide them.
Then when it’s time to distribute the presents they tell their kids that an old mystical figure, who in all honesty would not be chosen to represent weight watchers, is the guy they have to thank.
Why would anyone hand over credit to a nonexistent character instead of being the recipient of the child’s love and gratitude?
Buying a gift for someone else can be greater than buying something for oneself, but that is only true if you see that person reaction and joy.
We are not referring to a case of donating Tzedakkah where anonymous giving is the ideal way to do it.
If I buy a gift, I’m sure not going to tell the beneficiary that some stranger from the mall is the one to be grateful too.
