2017 Resolutions: Hold GOP and Trump accountable! Save the Constitution!

With 2016 in the rear-view mirror, and the road ahead pointing us to 2017, it’s healthy to reflect on the past year as we make preparations for the new year. While I’m sure that there are some things that didn’t…

Conservative Comedy 1/2/15

It’s Conservative Comedy time at the Strident Conservative. As I do every Friday, I bring you some of the best conservative political and religious comedy, jokes, and satire on the internet, sure to provide a good laugh to begin your weekend. Many of our regular contributors to Conservative Comedy are off again this week for New Year’s Day. Not to worry, though. I will be bringing you some material from the archives that are surprisingly current due to the fact that politicians are pretty much the same in 2015 as they were in years past. The Conservative Comic at Hope n’ Change is keeping his New Year’s resolution to be better about recycling this year, so he recycled this cartoon from 2011 (cleverly changing only the dates). Frankly, he just wanted to take the day off to do things like clearing his desk for the new year and kick starting his diet by eating all of the potentially fattening foods which might otherwise tempt him later. Still, he offers his hope your 2015 is off to a good start – and that the coming year (and its political insanity) won’t age the rest of us as badly as it does Father Time. Jodi Miller at […]

Coney Island Polar Bear Plunge (Video) for bone marrow donation awareness!

Coney Island, NY Polar Bear Plunge New Year’s Day 2014

Today my son and I participated in the Coney Island Polar Bear Plunge, running into the 30-degree Atlantic Ocean until we were submerged!

And, truth be told, this activity was definitely outside of my comfort zone as I don’t go into the water during the summer when it’s 95 degrees outside let alone a January day when it’s 32!

Michael Haltman and his 17-year-old son, Cory Haltman, took the plunge to raise awareness for the bone marrow donation registry. His 23-year-old daughter, Samantha Haltman, is donating bone marrow to a patient struggling with blood cancer, and they wanted to show support.

The water was a shock — Haltman said he felt it was difficult to breathe.

“I wore a winter coat until it was time to go, but others were out there for an hour and a half only in bikinis,” Haltman said. “Parts of my body are still re-emerging. The sun wasn’t out. It was freezing. Water temperature wasn’t much warmer.” (AP)

With the Statue of Liberty

We did this in support of one of my daughters who is going to be donating bone marrow to a patient with a blood cancer through her participation in the national bone marrow registry at BeTheMatch.org.

For someone with this disease who is in need of a bone marrow transplant the first choice for a donor would of course be a blood relative.

But, if for some reason that is not a viable alternative, the registrants at BeTheMatch.org will be scoured to determine if someone is a suitable match.

I have been in this registry for about 20-years and have never been called while my daughter, a member for only a few was.

So go to BeTheMatch.org, read about the organization and the ease with which you can register, then join today so that someday you might be able to offer someone the potential to beat cancer!
