Why I LOVE American Cities …New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, Boston, D.C., L.A. is the Place For Me!!!

by Teréza Eliasz-Solomon (HeiressMommy™)

One of the greatest things about American cities has always been that the Arts [museums, theater, libraries, etc.] were/are available to ALL people. Even those living in the adjoining neighborhoods, suburbs or for New York City, the boroughs – are able to take advantage, for the small prize of public transportation, of many cultural and educational venues. Sadly, the “dumbing  down”  of our populace is suggesting that these activities are some how “elitist”. This is not only a fallacy but additionally a dangerous concept. Why dangerous? The answer is quite simply – without the ability to have EVERYONE expand their horizons, this great nation will be demeaned and further segregated – all leading to less progress and much more strife. We MUST fight against the current right wing zealots who for whatever reasons, want to defund PBS [G-d forbid Big Bird should influence your child], NPR and Arts in public school.

Those of us – like myself and now my children – who have the advantages that afford both the country and city life experience, along with private school education – will be just fine. However, one must acknowledge that even those of us so blessed can not live in a bubble and denying the general public the same opportunities will diminish us all eventually. Who does not personally know or at least have read about someone who if not for publicly financed/sponsored arts would have been lost to a life of tragedy?.One need look no further than many current music stars to find such a glorious American story.

My husband joins me in being thrilled that our twin sons will be frequent Museum goers – having access to NYC multiple marvelous venues [where else can one see a Cindy Sherman retrospective?] and Philadelphia [like the current Up Close Van Gogh Philadelphia Art Museum exhibit – which just yesterday we decided will be the boys first Museum experience, as well as the Annenberg Children Theater series this Spring] when we are there. Additionally, we decided before their birth to do other city excursions specifically for The Arts & Sciences – this should not be limited to us privileged few – if you think Wall Street v. Main Street is important class warfare, then trust me Jersey Shore v. Broadway/MOMA  is an equal class division to be fought against!!!

The Delusion of “Caught You” Types … Loathsome Character Flaws of lying, cheating, stealing & vandalizing

by Teréza Eliasz-Solomon (HeiressMommy™)

I guess there really is “honor among thieves” – having experienced personal enemies complicit  and delusional in their effort to demean others – while not recognizing that so much is known about their loathsome existence, it is they that should fear exposure. The Jewish faith and thus the derivative faith of Christianity prohibits and punishes severely the gossiper, slanderer and defaming losers …my route to justice is lawsuits and a life well lived. My glory is found in owning up to the good and the bad of my life – and outing the evil doers!

Despite never being a fan of Sarah Palin and being horrified at the prospect of her being elected Vice President of The United States …I was quite dismayed at the publication of the book and subsequent movie “Game Change“.  One must ask why only after the election of 2008, did these operatives feel compelled to enlighten our populace of that rogue political choice – obviously money is the answer. Otherwise these same individuals would have left the McCain Presidential campaign – losing their salaries and possibly never being employed in a similar position again – in order to warn our great nation of Governor Palin’s obvious incompetency.

I am totally prepared for  lies and denials from the lesser among us when my book, Heiress Mommy, is published next year. Thankfully, my amazing publicist and legal team are equally and superbly prepared as well. I leave you with something Voltaire wrote in a letter to his fellow Enlightenment figure, Denis Diderot – Voltaire urged in this letter: “Go on, brave Diderot, intrepid d”Alembert. Fall upon the knaves, destroy their empty declamations, their miserable sophistries, their historical lies, their contradictions and absurdities beyond numbers.”. I love a great life motto – this possibly to be included in the family crest my brilliant husband is designing and definitely to be taught to our twin sons and the daughter we are now seriously considering “working” on. For those who are foolishly thinking they can defeat myself or my husband – please know we are guided by G-d and are pure in the conscious efforts  of our life choices – there will be no surrender nor retreat from our tasks!!!
