The conversation about how wonderful the little guy read the Four Questions after the Passover Seder segued into discussions of other questions, including several about timely topics. I jotted some of them down for you. Most are worthy of discussion when the conversation slows down to a halt at your next party.

Are the Malaysians hiding something about Flight 370?

Why is it called a black box when it really is bright orange?

How much did the last Michelle vacation cost us? How many track chairs could have been bought for those taxpayer dollars?

Does Jesse Watters go out of his way to find the dumbest people to interview?

Why do abortion, climate change, and the Zimmerman verdict have to be political issues? What do they really have to do with your party affiliation?

If alcohol is legal, why are so many against the use of pot? I don’t use either, but I’m told that it is easier to inhale a joint than it is to drink a bitter tasting liquid. It’s only my opinion, but if we have 25 million alcoholics in the United States, how many potheads will there be once its legalized?

Why is the instrument called a French horn when it originally came from Germany?

Did you know that 66 percent of America disapproves of Obamacare?

Why is it that the uglier the catch, the better it tastes? Think lobster and oysters. On Passover?

What was Hillary’s best accomplishment as Secretary of State? Did she have any accomplishments?

Which lie is worse? “I didn’t have sex with that woman Miss Lewinsky.” Or “If you like your plan you can keep your plan, period!”

Why are you against photo identification to vote when you DO need it to get on an airplane, cash a check, get a driver’s license, get a document notarized, apply for a job and rent a car?

When did “coming attractions” become “movie trailers?’ When did “You’re welcome” become “No problem?” When did macaroni become pasta? When did dungarees become jeans?

Do you notice how great a football team plays during the game ending two-minute drill? Why don’t they play the entire game that way?

Why are so many Americans upset over the fact that President Obama just finished his 165th round of golf? The left wants him in his office so that he can create more entitlement programs. The right is happy when he is out of his office. The more he is away, the less damage he can do.

What is the real reason he is delaying Keystone again?

The room was about equally divided between liberals and conservatives. Even with the many disagreements, nobody jumped into the gutter and hurled mean-spirited insults. I am saying we finished the Seder night with the traditional “Next year in Jerusalem.” One of my friends then asked “Maybe the year after we could go on a cruise?”

Tinman from Sheepshead Bay says:
The ultimate question is: why is Stanley Gershbein's taking a pious religious ritual and bastardizing it into an inane column, sprinkled with his conservative clap trap ?

David from Mill Basin says:
To Tinman from Sheepshead Bay: The ultimate question is WHY do you even bother to read Mr. Gershbein's column when all you do is criticize it? Geez, I feel sorry for members of your family if they are living with you. You are the pits, a grouch of the first order. I do believe jealousy is the reason you read and ultimately criticize Mr. Gershbein's columns. Closed mind opens big mouth! Lighten up, damn it. It must be very difficult writing a column every week, and even more difficult trying to please every reader. Put that in your pipe and stuff it in your nose, Tinman.

Hi David -- If you're the David I think you are, please Email me your telephone number. I could answer your question about Neil.

Chris Wright from Marine Park says:
Which lie is worse?
-"I did not have sex with that woman."
-"If you like your plan you can keep your plan."
-"Iran has weapons of mass destruction."
-"Mission accomplished."

Hundreds of thousands were killed and maimed as a result of the last two. How many because of the first two?
