Eretz Yisrael Time

I wasn’t surprised at the Peretz binocular story everyone is talking about. I’m not surprised at the latest allegations of corruption against everybody.

But sometimes when I think I can’t be shocked anymore, it takes just one little article to shake me out of my apathy.

Ha’aretz is reporting… and to be honest, I don’t know how to even present this… that Yisrael Beiteinu MK Esterina Tartman, who is set to be appointed as tourism minister, is not allowed to work more than 4 hours a day for medical reasons.

You heard me right, but it gets better (or worse).

I don’t know if you are following me, but this lady was in a car accident 10 years ago,and as a result she claims she suffers from the following health problems:

1) her ability to work had been severely compromised,
2) she suffers from problems of memory, concentration and attention.

In her own word, "I maintain the demeanor and image that everything is okay, but no one sees that I'm collapsing."

In short she has declared herself completely incompetent to be a public representative and yet… here she is – and she even gets extra money for milking the system.

She says, “this Knesset is easy work - inconsistent and consisting mostly of talk”.

But I ask, how would she know that if she can’t remember properly, can’t concentrate on what anyone says, and can’t pay attention to the issues at hand?

Does someone tell her how to vote?

How does she remember which way she is suppose to be voting on each issue?

Oh, did I ask that already? I forgot.

And how the hell can I get a job at her salary and only work 4 hours a day?
