Re: Israel's good friend Obama... I'm going to side with JTZ on this one. When I read his comment I understood it to mean that on average, someone who is Jewish is more likely to know about Israeli politics than him.
But I'm not very sympathetic to cries of "racism" in general. It could be that by the standard applied to other comments here, this one was also "racist".

Re: 2016 Election Pick Your Poison Master Thread My thoughts on the fact that so many #nevertrumpers are supporting him now because of the media.

Most of us had 2 reasons why we did not vote for Trump, 1- we didn't like his character and 2 - we didn't trust him to keep to his word to enact conservative policies.

Trump has addressed #2 by making a lot of conservative moves, both in his appointments (cabinet and SC) and in his actions. Most of his actions have been executive actions because legislation takes time, and the Senate is busy working through confirmation hearings (which have been stretched out by Democrats).

The media and the left is doing a good job in addressing the first point because as much as I can't stand Trump, I hate them more (because of the way they are reacting) and in a choice between the two I, and most conservatives, are going with Trump.

I'll also point out that there is an unprecedented amount of criticism of Trump from conservative Republicans who will work with him when he furthers their common goals and have shown themselves willing to stand up to him when he acts stupidly.

This is a very healthy thing for our political system, to have a group of people that stand for certain principals and not a "team". If the Democrats would do the same when people on "their side" do or say stupid things America would truly be on the right path.

What happened? Did someone ask if he still beats his wife?

His ex-wife has repeatedly said for years that her allegations were not true, and that she was "counseled" to make them in order to gain an upper hand in their divorce negotiations.

What more likely stopped his nomination was his views on immigration. It's ironic that the one Trump nominee that was stopped, was from the right.

Re: Origins Of Chassidus (The Good the Bad and the Ugly) And Is there A bad Jew?
Are you so comfortable saying that the Vilna Gaon, whose brilliance and insight I could not possibly do justice to, was easily misled by others into taking such drastic action? That is a terrible accusation to make against such a gadol and against his daas Torah
Are you so comfortable saying that all of the Chassidim were koferim and everything else described in the cherem?

Someone was wrong in this whole story. There are three options;
1 - All of the Chassidim
2 - The Gr'a
3 - The witnesses

Now, which of the three do you think is the most charitable version of events? Or is there another option?

Re: Origins Of Chassidus (The Good the Bad and the Ugly) And Is there A bad Jew?
As was stated above many were fearful that chassidus was another false Mashiach, which had a terrible and tragic effect. Physically and spiritually.

Shabsai Tzvi had many gedolim that believed him in the beginning. Why is it hard to believe that the Gra was reluctant to let chasidus grow into a serious movement that according to what he was hearing can devastate a Klal Yisroel that was still reverberating from the Shabsai Tzvi effect? Had they Nipped the bud with ST it would have save an untold amount of grief, pain and despair.

You are explaining why at the time it seemed like the right thing to do. You are missing the point which is that chassidus was not another ST. The Gra did not know that at the time. There are two possible explanations for this error, either he misinterpreted the information that he got or he did not get good information. Choose one of the two.

Re: Origins Of Chassidus (The Good the Bad and the Ugly) And Is there A bad Jew?
why couldnt he have been right?

Because to suggest that he was right is to say that the Alter Rebbe was a Moshiach Sheker.

It is also irrelevant if he could have been right when the fact is that he was not.

Re: How much should a nice esrog cost this year?
IIRC the last many years there has always been " a reason'' why this year the esrogim /lulavim were unfortunately a little more expensive.
i dont remember a year where the mochrim were saying wow this was a great year and the price will be commensurately lower.

I can't speak for past years, but my brother in law is very involved (in picking, not selling) and he told me several months ago that the only way they will get the farmers to continue to do business with them is to pay them significantly more for the next few years.

This doesn't excuse the price gouging on the Israeli Esrogs, but I guess that's capitalism ...

Short version; Yeshiva didn't provide enough toilet paper. A bochur decided that since it's the yeshiva's responsibility he is not going to buy his own, and if there isn't enough he won't use...

Re: Prison
Not trying to sound idealistic, but every jew, and his family, have a place in Israel. The Aliyah benefits are very decent, and I'm sure 5K and some organizations like Nefesh Bnefesh can get a person going for 2-3 months till they get on their feet.
They may extradite for financial crimes, but its a long a drawn out civil process, and Israeli citizens (assuming he would of made proper Aliyah during the 18 months before they come knocking) can make deals to serve in Israel if they're  family is all there, and where there is definitely no Rikers. Besides, once you leave, they don't really chase you unless you come up on the radar again i.e. show up at the border.

Does this justify higher bail amounts for Jews? When the prosecution tried claiming that in Rubashkin's case the whole world screamed "anti-Semitism"

Re: Vaccine Discussion Master Thread
How about an Anti-Assisted Birth movement. Hashem wants us to give birth like the nashim tzidkanios did in mitzrayim. Itís mefurash a Rashi. Women should give birth on their own on the privacy of their homes, not in a hospital assisted by an OB; they are all just in it for the money- the whole system, from the ultrasound companies, to the prenatal vitamin producers, to the formula companies, to the OBís and hospitals are all in cahoots to make millions by providing unnecessary healthcare. Studies show that hospitals are full of dangerous germs and there are hundreds of lawsuits that proved that doctors have actually harmed babies during delivery, in some cases resulting in severe brain damage. Vinishmartem meíod lenafshoseichem means it is positively a mitzvah to stop harming our precious children by using the money-hungry healthcare machine. Besides, kol kevudah bas melech penimah.

Thereís a reason why our great-grandmothers didnít have such a pevalence of autism and so many other diagnoses. Our babies werenít meant to undergo the trauma of a medically assisted birth! Let us reconnect with our precious mesorah of self delivery that we tragically abandoned in favor of the corrupt medical system!

An FBI investigation can derail his nomination which I have said many times. This can only happen if they find information against him. If they find nothing then he should be approved. How is that a talking point? That is a 100% fair position.

Many of you make claims but can't back them up. You stuck your foot in your mouth with the IRS BS and now you will just ignore it.

Not all Trump supporters are racist, anti-gay or anti- Semites. If you are one of these there is a high probability you support Trump. I wonder why, not!!!

This is only true if you ignore Keith Ellison, and Linda Sarsour and Al Sharpton etc. The difference between the right and left is that the left wing anti-Semitism are mainstream Democrats and the right wing anti-Semites are fringe wackos.

Because we are a country of laws. You can't just build something on someone's land without the courts saying so.

Have you heard of eminent domain? The supreme Court ruled that it could be used even to take from one individual and give to another if the government had an interest in that private development.

I think the restrictions on eminent domain should be a lot stricter than they are now, but don't make as if it's crazy to even suggest it.
