Did you know that May is Jewish American Heritage Month? Of course you didn’t. Jews are being marginalized and vilified at a frightening level.
neo-Nazi faction of the extreme Right has always hated Jews for not being Christian, not being “White” enough. Now, the rapidly growing anti-Semitic part of the extreme Left hates Jews for being “honorary” Whites who are allegedly suppressing people “of color” in the so-called Palestinians. What does that say about anti-Semitism?
You will never see this truth reported anywhere, but Arabs living fully integrated in Israeli society–Israel’s population is 20% Arab–live better than Arabs anywhere else in the Middle East except for the oil sheiks and ruling elites. Israeli Arab women can show their face in public and attend school.
For those who hate Jews, the data doesn’t matter, but here are some updated numbers. Jews have been awarded:
41% of the Nobel Prizes in Economics (more than 205 times their share of the world’s population)
28% of the Nobel Prizes in Medicine (more than 140 times their share of the world’s population)
26% of the Nobel Prizes in Physics (more than 130 times their share of the world’s population)
19% of the Nobel Prizes in Chemistry (more than 95 times their share of the world’s population)
NO group has punched more above its weight than the Jews. To the ignorant anti-Semites I offer this once again: Zolst Leegen En Drerd!

This CNBC article is about the significant increase in fatalities from motor vehicle crashes in 2021, despite more advanced safety systems. Here is the second paragraph of the piece:
“The problem is complex: It’s a combination of reckless or distracted driving, largely due to cellphone usage; increased sales of trucks and SUVs [heavier vehicles, my note]; and higher performance of vehicles, among other factors. Plus, the expected proliferation of electric vehicles, with weighty batteries and record performance may not help the issue going forward.”
I know my view will never prevail, but EVs are not the answer; eFuels are. I also become quite livid seeing so many people drive with their cellphones in their hands. Maybe it’s a good thing I’m not armed.
This article from Classic Cars, which is owned by Barrett-Jackson, reveals the substantial growth in classic car auctions in 2021. From the piece:
“According to Classic.com, classic car auction sales hit $2.3 billion in 2021. It’s no surprise that that figure is 77 percent higher than it was in 2020, but what’s truly shocking is that it’s 61 percent higher than 2019 sales. In fact, auction revenue in every month of 2021 except January was higher than it was in the same month going all the way back to 2017, reaching a peak of $457.61 million in August. The lower revenue figures in January 2021 can be attributed to the cancellation or postponement of in-person auction events during Arizona Auction Week.”
Mecum Auctions reported record sales at their recent event in Indianapolis, which my wonderful wife and I attended. Frankly, that news surprised me as my impression was that the sell-through rate did not seem to be as high as other recent Mecum auctions. You want to see at least one more photo from the auction? OK…
This 1958 Chevrolet Impala, these cars are rapidly moving up on my wish list, did not sell at a high bid of $55,000. However, it was the only one of five ’58 Impalas that did not sell. The other four sold for an average “all in” price of $56,650.
If it weren’t for the location/time of year of upcoming Mecum auctions, I think my wonderful wife and I would attend most, if not all, of them. I just can’t see being in Oklahoma in June, in Florida in July, or in Texas in early September. Remember that we lived in Texas for eight years. Our first Labor Day there the high temperature was 111°. That’s a real temperature, not a science project. (Thank you, Richard Jeni.) I can also assure you that the dewpoint that day was not 15° or 25°, either.
For the nth to the n time, I welcome thoughtful comments. Thanks.
