Ambushed

I think I'm in for an ambush. The person I mentioned two posts ago who tried setting me up invited me for a meal on shabbos. I go to his house all the time, so I accepted. Then he texted me to tell me "there may be another guest". He's never done that in the past. I'm very suspicious that he'll have the girl he wanted to set me up with come over as well... I guess I'll see..

Values Out the Window

The Supreme Court ruling on gay marriage is a sad day for the country. The Judeo-Christian values upon which this country was founded have gone out the window. Sadly, I believe this will be the start of the end for the Union. Between taxation, gay marriage, Obamacare, gun control and a whole host of other liberal policies, I feel within the next 25-50 years we will see the more conservative part of the country try striking it out on their own...

"Touching" My Beard

I've always loved my beard. I felt it made my face look better, added a rugged manliness, it was neat, well kept and perfect. Over the past couple months though, things have started to change. It grew ever so slightly, and it feels a bit too bit at times. My sideburns got this wild thing goes, and became tough to control even with combing. My shnoozel (the under-chin / goat part of the beard) became rather extended and needed to be brushed back. It was driving me crazy.

After much soul searching, I decided to take a major step. It was one about which I was warned there is no return. I visited Beardbrand & bought a boar bristle beard brush and beard oil.

The change is amazing. I fully understand the "lumberjack" movement. Beard oil is fantastic. It makes the beard smell lovely, feel softer and makes it easier to maintain. After putting in the oil, the beard is then brushed, helping the oil reach every corner of the bard. This keeps the beard in check, looking healthy, feeling soft and smelling lovely. I am sold. Females: have your man try beard oil. It rocks.

Not Taking No For An Answer

<Rant>Some people just dont listen. My parents are thankfully off my back about me dating. Everyone else, not so much. Why cant no mean no?I simply don't care to get married for the time being. The girl can be amazing - she can ride unicorns and poop rainbows for all I care. The answer is still no. People jut dont get that. One guy drives my father crazy every shabbos about me. Another guy drives me crazy literally every few days. Thursday evening I had this priceless exchange:

Him: If someone were to call me and ask how old you are, what would I say?
Me: "You" being me?
Him: Yeah.
Me: I'm not dating. ('m guessing that's why the person would want to know.
Him. OK. Thanks.

(an hour later).

Him: Do you like older women?
Me: I'm not dating.

(No response)

I mean, really? What is wrong with people? I don't pressure them about popping out more kids, don'r drive me crazy about dating. The guy from the above referenced conversation actually approached me on shabbos and confronted me on my no dating position. He was like "What's your issue, You  need 7 figures in your bank account before you can date?" There seems to be this mindset that when a guy has a good job and makes money he has to get married right away. I don't buy into that. I enjoy being able to invest, and to spend money on myself. Why do I need to waste it on shoes for a wife?

Anyhoo.....<Rant/>

Saving the Republican Party

The Republican party is in dire need of being saved. Recent polls show that the country is starting to trend more liberal. From being prob gay marriage to legalizing pot, the country's youth are bucking conservative values. The conservative response has been awful: politicians simply yell and try passing dumb laws. This gets them nowhere.

The proper response is simple: school vouchers. The issue is that kids are not being educated with proper Judaeo-Christian and conservative values. The public school system is ran by liberal teachers who belong to liberal unions, and who do everything to ensure the children who go through the system are liberal as well. School vouchers will allow parents to send kids to catholic and charter schools. School which teach proper values and will breed the conservatives of tomorrow. School vouchers are a winning proposition. The minorities like them. The minorities (who tend to vote democrat) are usually religious. They want their kids going to religious schools. If the Republican party enables that, they create a new generation of conservative republican voters.

Along with school vouchers, Republicans need to stop focusing on social issues. The one issue to stand strong on is abortion. All other issues can be ignored. The morality of the day - or lack thereof, is ok with gay marriage, teen sex, single parenthood, drugs etc. We cannot change that by legislation. It can only be changed by changing the way people think. That can only be accomplished through education. Until we get there, republicans need to focus on national security and the economy. That is how we will win elections.

Life Updates


  1. I finally finished school. I had been leaving it on the back burner for a while, as I don't really need a degree. But I figured I was halfway finished, so I may as well. I managed to pull it off all online & while having a full time job. And a 3.86 GPA ain't too shabby...
  2. I returned to my old hometown of Toronto for a short visit. It was nice. So much has changed.
  3. Ive turned down no less than 20 shidduchim in the past couple weeks. Why is it that people think that a working guy has to get married? I've told them all I'm not interested. I like my current freedom, and ability to actually keep the money I earn.
  4. I found a really cool investing group called OurCrowd. Its a crowd funding platform that does angel investing / VC. They focus on Israeli startups. They have a great track record and have some awesome companies that they're investing in. Do check them out.
  5. Summer is coming, and I'm trying to figure out what  (if anything) I'm going to do for vacation. I haven't vacationed in quite some time. I'm thinking of Moncton New Brunswick. I know nothing about it, but saw a pretty looking ad for it in the Travel & Leisure magazine. I may also end up in North Carolina for a week for business which will be cool. 
Thats that... Sianora...

New Car. Finally

After like two years of talking about updating my car, I finally made the move. Unlike my previous thoughts, I didnt go with a sports or muscle car. I decided I'm too old at heart for that. So instead, I went with the absolutely gorgeous 2015 Hyundai Genesis. With the tech package. The thing is as comfortable as it gets, and has INSANE features. The "smart cruise control" that literally drives itself. It turns, brakes, accelerates, it'e beyond crazy.

I got the car in "Parisian gray" which I think is stunning. It's a weird cross between silver, blue and gray. The one downside about the car is its gas mileage. I'm averaging some 20 miles a gallon - if i'm lucky.... And the car costs roughly $70 to fill up...I guess my next car will have to be a Tesla...
