The article appeared in The Israel National News, and is directed to Jewish readership. 70% of American Jews vote as Democrats. The Rabbi has some interesting comments in that regard. Rabbi Steven Pruzansky is the spiritual leader of Congregation Bnai Yeshurun in Teaneck, New Jersey "The most charitable way of explaining the election results of 2012 is that Americans voted for the status quo - for the incumbent President and for a divided Congress.

American writer Max Ehrmann (1872–1945) wrote the prose poem "Desiderata" in 1927.[1] In 1956, the Reverend Frederick Kates, rector of Saint Paul's Church in Baltimore, Maryland, included Desiderata in a compilation of devotional materials for his congregation. The compilation included the church's foundation date: "Old Saint Paul's Church, Baltimore A.D. 1692". Consequently, the date of the text's authorship was (and still is) widely mistaken as 1692, the year of the church's foundation.[1][2] When US Democratic presidential hopeful Adlai Stevenson died in 1965, a guest in his home found the Desiderata near his bedside and discovered that Stevenson had planned to use it in his Christmas cards. This contributed further to the poem becoming widely known.[1] The text was widely distributed in poster form. Calling it "Spock Thoughts", Leonard Nimoy recited the poem on his 1968 album, Two Sides of Leonard Nimoy. This version also appeared on the 1995 re-release of Leonard Nimoy Presents Mr. Spock's Music Fr ...
When an American says that he loves his country, he means not only that he loves the New England hills, the prairies glistening in the sun, the wide and rising plains, the great mountains, and the sea. He means that he loves an inner air, an inner light in which freedom lives and in which a man can draw the breath of self-respect. ~Adlai Stevenson

"We travel together, passengers on a little spaceship, dependent upon its vulnerable reserves of air and soil, all committed for our safety to its security and peace; preserved from annihilation only by the care, the work, and, I will say, the love we give our fragile craft. We cannot maintain it half fortunate, half miserable, half confident, half despairing, half slave to the ancient enemies of man, half free in a liberation of resources undreamed of until this day. No craft, no crew can travel safely with such vast contradictions. On their resolution depends the survival of us all." ADLAI STEVENSON, 1964

4.2 Donald Rumsfeld, shown in December 1983 shaking hands with Iraqi President Saddam Hussein in Baghdad, before agreeing to sell him the chemical and biological weapons which Rumsfeld's own administration would use to justify attacking Iraq in 2003. In recent interviews Rumsfeld lied by saying he "cautioned" Saddam Hussein about the use of chemical weapons when the declassified State Department minutes of the meeting state no such thing. The mishap was covered up by Pentagon spokesman Brian Whitman, who changed the story by saying that the comments were made to Iraqi foreign minister Tariq Aziz. The Washington Post reported, According to a sworn court affidavit prepared by Teicher (NSC official under Reagan) in 1995, the United States "actively supported the Iraqi war effort by supplying the Iraqis with billions of dollars of credits, by providing military intelligence and advice to the Iraqis, and by closely monitoring third country arms sales to Iraq to make sure Iraq had the military weaponry required ...
The coolness with Eleanor Roosevelt had long since vanished. She was proud of Kennedy as President and proud of Jacqueline, with whom she had an affectionate correspondence, as the President's lady. When she died in November, 1962, the Kennedys flew to Hyde Park for the funeral. The Harrimans, my wife, and I accompanied them on the plane. The day was overcast and somber. We sat in the small stone church and watched them walk in: President Kennedy, sad and silent; President Truman, looking very old, an expression of anguish on his face; President Eisenhower, grave and dignified; Frances Perkins and Henry Morgenthau, Jr., Henry Wallace and James A. Farley, Tom Corcoran and Ben Cohen, Herbert Lehman and Adlai Stevenson. "This is the last assembly," Corcoran whispered to me. "There will never again be an occasion on which all these people will gather together." By the time we reached the grave site, a gentle rain had begun to fall. Later we went over to John Roosevelt's. All the Roosevelt children were there. ...

In memory of Edward M. Gallaudet, Adlai Stevenson, and William S. Burroughs. Past February 5s: 1631: Roger Williams arrives in Boston in the Massachusetts Bay Colony from England. 1736: John and Charles Wesley arrive in Savannah, Georgia. 1897: The Indiana State House legislature passes Bill No.246 which in effect gives 3.2 exactly as the value of pi. Luckily, a math professor from Purdue advises the Senate that this is mathematically incorrect, and that body indefinitely postpones action on the bill. 1897: Marcel Proust meets Jean Lorrain in a pistol duel. Proust and Lorrain exchange shots at 25 paces. Proust fires first, his bullet hitting the ground by Lorrain’s foot. Lorrain’s shot misses, and the seconds agree that honor is satisfied. 1978: Blindfolded Fred Newman makes 88 consecutive basketball free throws (at Central YMCA, San José, California). 1981: Largest Jell-O made (9,246 gallons of watermelon-flavor).
