Is Geraldo Rivera Right About O.J. Simpson and Parole?

No; no; and no! OJ committed the crime in Las Vegas, Nevada. Let's look at the law for the State of Nevada:

1) Chapter 202.320: " 1.Unless a greater penalty is provided in NRS 202.287, a person having, carrying or procuring from another person any dirk, dirk-knife, sword, sword cane, pistol, gun or other deadly weapon, who, in the presence of two or more persons, draws or exhibits any of such deadly weapons in a rude, angry or threatening manner not in necessary self-defense, or who in any manner unlawfully uses that weapon in any fight or quarrel, is guilty of a misdemeanor."

2) Clearly, O.J. Simpson qualified for punishment under Chapter 202.287: " [4](a)“Structure” means any temporary or permanent structure, including, but not limited to, any tent, house, room, apartment, tenement, shop, warehouse, store, mill, barn, stable, outhouse or other building." So, "[1](b)If the structure or vehicle is within an area designated by city or county ordinance as a populated area for the purpose of prohibiting the discharge of weapons, is guilty of a category B felony and shall be punished by imprisonment in the state prison for a minimum term of not less than 2 years and a maximum term of not more than 15 years, or by a fine of not more than $5,000, or by both fine and imprisonment."


Putting aside that O.J. Simpson attempted to steal what he owed the Goldmans, anyway, he committed a Category-B Felony under Nevada State Law. O.J. was sentenced in 2008, and he has served four-going-on-five years; and he still has (not counting the parole that he received) 10-11 years to go.

So, either way, O.J. Simpson ought to stay in prison and serve his time well!

Christianity Without Tikun-Ha'Olam Is Useless--and Certainly Not Even Really Christianity

We weren't given, e.g., the Great Commission for no reason--and fulfilling the Great Commission requires tikun-ha'olam. If you live your life by that "'Expectation is the root of all heartache'," so much for being a Christian, then. Jesus told us to expect pain & sorrow, and that things will get better if we try to help them be. After all, " “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.  Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house.  Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven."

And what does a light do? Well, "there is nothing hidden which will not be revealed, nor has anything been kept secret but that it should come to light." Lights shine on things. Lights reveal things. Lights also, if they can, refine things. Remember that lights contain heating elements. "Many shall be purified, made white, and refined, but the wicked shall do wickedly; and none of the wicked shall understand, but the wise shall understand."

You don't help people by keeping things in the dark, let alone by not using things to learn from them. After all, "[a]s iron sharpens iron, [s]o a man sharpens the countenance of his friend." Not only that, but light needs to be a light to darkness as well, that the darkness may come into the light if it can.

For example, "if the whole church comes together in one place, and all speak with tongues, and there come in those who are uninformed or unbelievers, will they not say that you are out of your mind? But if all prophesy, and an unbeliever or an uninformed person comes in, he is convinced by all, he is convicted by all. And thus the secrets of his heart are revealed; and so, falling down on his face, he will worship God and report that God is truly among you."

People are not going to be convinced if the Church seems out of touch with realities of the world. Focusing on "sweetness and light" and the "positive" all of the time is not being in touch with what's going on. Granted that you are to "[s]et your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God." That doesn't mean to ignore or mitigate the realities of the world--in fact, that means that you're to "not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God."

Remember that the world tries to hide things, keep secrets, make things look better than they are. No wonder, then, that the world won't help the least of these. After all, why would one help the least of these if he or she denies or mitigates them or their circumstances in the first place?

"“Then He will also say to those on the left hand, ‘Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels: for I was hungry and you gave Me no food; I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink; I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, naked and you did not clothe Me, sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.’

"“Then they also will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to You?’ Then He will answer them, saying, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.’ And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”"

After all, "[p]ure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world." "To keep oneself unspotted from the world" surely does not mean to focus on the "positive" and "sweetness and light" all of the time when the "positive" and "sweetness and light" is surely not what widows and orphans are going through. Besides, again, how will you "make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit," if you won't address the reasons why they need the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit in the first place? After all, there's no need--because there's no lack or void--of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit  in a "positive" world of "sweetness and light".

Furthermore, we're not in that "positive" world of "sweetness and light" yet. In that day, "[n]o more shall every man teach his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for they all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them, says the Lord." But it's not that day yet--so we need to live in the reality of the day that we are in right now--and living in the present requires that we focus on and try to make better the reality of the present, no matter how un-"positive" and lacking in "sweetness and light" it is.

Where Do I Begin Regarding These Past 10 Days? Well...

Just bear with me. I went into ITB surgery on the 17th of July (and still owe my friend a tallit or weaved tzitziyot--and there was no way that, regardless of what I wanted, I could take up weaving in the hospital). The actually installation of the ITB pump was on the 18th (since they did a trial run with ITB on the 17th), and the next few days were Hell in at least some ways (Some people actually gave a ****--or at least more of a **** than they normally would about me--, so that didn't make it complete Hell.). I then got transferred to Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital from Johns Hopkins on the 22nd of July, and I've been at MWPH since.

As my aunt put my situation, I've had a lot of time to reflect--and, as usual and of course, some of my reflecting has gotten Mom mad at me. That's why I now have two Facebook accounts--one for my private life, and one for the life that Mom doesn't like. The life that she doesn't like, of course, is my life as a commentator, blogger, and other kind of pundit, kvetcher, or whatever I am. She hates that, for example, I talk about subjects that aren't "lighter subjects" when people come to visit me. 

Further, my second account was just originally a backup account to which someone sent me a bizarre friend request. So, everything seemed to come together as a "perfect storm"--I needed (and need) to keep my Mom and others out of my punditry and the fray thereof (for all of our sakes), I am a quasi-public figure (for both good and bad, with fame and infamy) that needs to start separating my public and private domains at some point, anyway; and I frankly don't want my family telling me what I can and cannot talk about--especially much of my life is driven by that (as I've often copied and pasted--or at least referred to) "nothing is secret that will not be revealed, nor anything hidden that will not be known and come to light."

My life is driven by being informed and informing others about what I know. After all, "Tzedek, tzedek tirdof--Justice, justice, you shall pursue." That's why I talk about our scattered, broken, and at-least-somewhat-corrupt family--for example, my family (e.g., Mary Rusnak Gaydos) was responsible for the murder of at least six Holocaust victims (Vilmosz, "Dudus", Pepi, Zoli, Miklos, and Sandor)--and they're only the ones that I could surely name off hand. My family also helped bring down Richard Nixon (Remember that Pop-Pop was IRS Agent John "Jack" Czarnecki and was the same Jack Czarnecki who served tax papers to Nixon via his attorneys.)--and the catch was that Nixon was a virulent Anti Semite who hated Jewish Democrats, and none other than a self-loathing Jewish Democrat was used to bring him down.

And what was the boring and mundane story that I got offhand? Oh, the Foskos wrote to Mary Gaydos asking for money, and she sent food (and during the Depression when the U.S. was hit harder than Czechoslovakia and Hungary--which alone should've alerted me to the fact that was a hole in the story), and that Pop-Pop was involved with Watergate (and, later, served papers to Nixon). 

I had no idea that my great-grandmother was a rotten kapo. By the way, you can get offended all that you want; but to deny relatives who are desperate and breaking their rules about not writing to "meshuadim" is a chillul-Yehovah (and given that Great-Grandma Gaydos professed to be a Christian, a chillul-Yeshua); and she deserves that get called for the kapo that she was--even though she's dead and has been dead since 1992. Besides, she wasn't called out for years; some in the family still defend her; Yehoshua's side understandably stopped talking to us for good again after that, and we're still cursed--"‘The Lord is longsuffering and abundant in mercy, forgiving iniquity and transgression; but He by no means clears the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third andfourth generation." By the way, in case you didn't get the memo by now, I'm of the fourth generation if you count Mary Gaydos as of the first, of the third if you count Grandma as of the first--and my children and the other (as much as Jack and Joan hate it) children of Jack's and Joan's grandchildren, and the children of my second cousins (their great-grandnephews and great-grandnieces) are set to be doomed because of the promised (not idly threatened--promised!) curse that Great-Grandma Gaydos set upon the family.

Also, given that the family continues to cover up for Great-Grandma Gaydos, we're repeating her chillul-Yehovah. So, what are we going to do with the family who made aliyah? Are we going to repeat Great-Grandma Gaydos' sin against Vilmosz and sin against them when push comes to shove with Iran? Are we going to say, "We can't help you" again--and, also again, wreck our testimony (and testimonies) regarding Yeshua while we're at it? I don't know about them, but I'm even making aliyah if and when I can--if they're part of the "the residue of those who remain of this evil family, who remain in all the places where [Yehovah has] driven [us]", that's not my problem.

As far as Pop-Pop, as I've said, none other than a self-loathing Jewish Democrat was used to bring Nixon down. Again, none other than a self-loathing Jewish Democrat was used to bring him down. "[S]elf-loathing"! For what? He let the Anti Semites who tried to bring his grandparents down bring him down. What the heck is the matter with a Jew who brought an Anti Semite down and won't say, "Yeah, G-d used me to bring that S.O.B. down?" Are you that afraid of your heritage, Pop-Pop?

"Has a nation changed its gods, Which are not gods? But My people have changed their Glory Forwhat does not profit." Here was an opportunity for the son of pogrom and other Anti-Semitism survivors to say, "Yes, I am a Jew, a proud Jew; and G-d has used me to bring down one who went against His people"--and he squandered the opportunity. What a shame, especially when the glory should've gone to G-d! "For as the sash clings to the waist of a man, so I have caused the whole house of Israel and the whole house of Judah to cling to Me,’ says the Lord, ‘that they may become My people, for renown, for praise, and for glory; but they would not hear.’"

Pretending to be a gentile, Polish-Lithuanian-American Catholic is worth the holding back of glory to G-d and a voice for the Jewish people?! "Do not abhor us, for Your name’s sake; Do not disgrace the throne of Your glory. Remember, do not break Your covenant with us." Continuous Anti Semitism in return for standing up for and helping my people is worth far more than Crypto Jewishness and assimilation that will not help one in the end. 

Thus, there are just two examples right there--and two examples that I never want to see a repeat of or parallel to in my family or any family ever again. Of course, as I've said, Mom doesn't like when I talk about all this. Well (and thanks to Christians United For Israel for using this verse as their mission statement), "For Zion’s sake I will not hold My peace, And for Jerusalem’ssake I will not rest, Until her righteousness goes forth as brightness, And her salvation as a lamp that burns."

Pursuing justice, therefore, begins with pursuing justice for my people and within my family--and that includes talking about my family history and other subjects which are to my mom's chagrin for me to talk about. Also, again, that's why one Facebook account for my private life, and one for my life as a commentator, blogger, and other kind of pundit, kvetcher, or whatever I am. After all, as aforestated, I want to keep my family (including my mom) out of the ever-increasing fray of my pursuits of justice and tikun-ha'olam.
