There is no question that there is a double standard when it comes to a conservative "insulting" a woman and a liberal doing he same.
The media, woman's groups, labor unions etc jump in and pour it on ,even though an apology was made.
When the Maher's are the culprits, the lame brain excuse that he is not the head of a party gives him carte blanche to insult without reprimand.
The people of the Negev are real heroes.When I hear or read of the rocket bombardment, my mind goes back to my Vietnam days.Many times we went on 'red alert' as mortars rained down on us.A few times there were attempts at ground attacks on our base.
Sitting in an underground bunker, not always knowing what is happening can be mentally stressful.
Yet the unity and determination of the people are part of the recipe for a strong nation.
