Re: Trump-Republican tax plan bad for large families
No vouchers where I live. It's complicated. Just don't tell that to the hundreds of NY/NJ families flocking here annually since they started.
Though it seems like OH 529s go up to $4K per person next year.
Don't forget that you can still contribute in 2017 to get the state tax break and then use it in 2018 once it takes effect.

Re: Trump-Republican tax plan bad for large families
and this is what is coming next
Going by the tax foundations numbers, this bill increases the deficit by ~5%. This tax plan is not the issue nor does it do much to make the issue worse. We do not have a revenue isssue, we have a spending issue and it needs to be fixed regardless of this tax plan.

Re: Trump-Republican tax plan bad for large families
My question is why isn't the market reacting positively? The past few weeks it was climbing like crazy and they were saying it's because of tax reform but yesterday and today when it actually is happening, the the markets are more or less flat. Doesn't make sense to me.
Over the last few days, everyone knew it would happen.

7. REPEAL OF THE INDIVIDUAL MANDATE – Awesome! You will no longer be penalized for not purchasing health insurance.
It's a fact that not taxing you for not buying healthcare is a good thing. Just because it doesn't skew the facts to your liking doesn't make it not fact.

Re: US Politics/2016 Election Pick Your Poison Master Thread
We support Israel because they are a democracy and a friend. Because of this our standing in the world is worse but we do it anyway since it is the right thing to do. I think you would even agree that a lot of the hate towards the US comes from our support of Israel.
Wrong. The reason they hate Israel and the US so much is because they hate democracy. They don't hate the US for being on Israels side, they hate Israel for being like the US.

Re: Will your federal taxes be going up or down next year?
They believe what they are saying. Remember when BO said everyone could keep their insurance if they wanted to? Call it what you want but they got screwed!!!
Did BO say they can keep their doctor? Yes
Were they able to? No

Did Trump say the middle class will get a tax cut? Yes
Did they get one? Yes

Why do you keep going back to what someone else is getting? That called  jealousy.

I think 50-100k household income for a family, I'd call middle. 

Of course, if you're frum, it's impossible to live on those numbers.
That's the lower middle class.

While every life lost by suicide is terrible, I don't think they should be included in this equation. Someone deciding to take their own life should not be a reason to stop people from owning guns (yes we should try to help those people and even take away THEIR guns)

You should probably post the complete information....
I edited the names but the conversation is complete for context. (Aside from the pictures which I will post soon.)
If one is concerned regarding this mechira, then there are many mechiras they shouldn't be soimech on. (Possibly the C&S mentioned in the conversation. Although the Kof-K said that the whole business was sold...)
IINM, most do NOT rely on C&S.
correct. There are many mechiras done this way, being soimech on a Teshiva from R' Moshe.
Isn't R' Moshe the one why was against mechira that allows them to stay open?

These judges should be handing out free puke bags, so it doesn't get so messy every time we read about these things.
The root of the problem is not in the Judges, it's in the core of the left's agenda, where equality means that an equal share of whites and blacks are arrested regardless of who commits more crimes.

Re: US Politics/2016 Election Pick Your Poison Master Thread IMO the unions should not be required to provide the benefits to non members (some benefits can't be split like salary and benefits, but others can like legal defense). The issue I have with the way it was before this ruling is that the government compels the union to serve non members, and therefore the union has a compelling argument that the non members should pay too. What the unions should do now is fight that they should not be required to represent non members.

Re: US Politics/2016 Election Pick Your Poison Master Thread
You don't seem to understand it is a given the workers will get screwed.
It is like saying lets get rid of discrimination laws and hope for the best.
Then the worker will find a boss who will treat him better. The employees most protected by unions are bad employees who don't do their work well, and should be fired but union regulations protect them from being fired. Good employees will find good jobs under an employer who is willing to pay them well and treat them well, instead we're all stuck paying the extra costs for employees who don't do their job well.

So I bought this the other day from walmart

and I noticed now that it says "with flavor enhancing minerals" and I don't see any hechsher on it at all and I didn't think twice to look for one because I thought it was just plain old water.

Should I not drink it?
From the CRC beverage list

Bottled Water
All unflavored are acceptable. Added minerals acceptable but added vitamins may pose a kashrus problem.

Re: What kind of Gemach is needed (in Lakewood)?
A while ago I was thinking about a rent-a-sefer type of thing.

Basically going to the big yeshivas at the end of the zman and getting all the popular newish leftover seforim that get left there. Then renting out each Sefer for a dollar a month.

Obviously have the person leave a cc number in case of damage...

Might be an idea just I guess don't charge the dollar each month. As far as I know I don't think there's such a thing yet.
That's what Capital Seforim does, he just sells them for cheap instead of renting or lending.

Re: Amazon HQ2
So why not just give them the $3 billion in incentive? How does $3 billion in incentives effect you, but $30 billion in revenue not.. that’s upside down.
The fact that NY needs to bribe amazon to come to NY is proof that NY is not very inviting for business in general. For every job that would be gained by amazon, there may very well be multiple jobs created if NY would offer the same incentives to all businesses (currently in NY or interested in moving to NY), it just doesn't come in one big swoop like amazon. It's a slap in the face to all businesses in NY to admit that it's too expensive to do business in NY, but since you don't help us brag that we brought jobs to the city we'll continue making life difficult for you but make it easy for the behemoth. If that's not called picking winners and losers I don't know what is.

February 14, 2019, 03:59:45 PM
Re: Amazon HQ2
One way of getting in the way of those creating jobs, is to ignore them when they offer a great deal.
The reason amazon needs a "good deal" to move to NY is because NY is getting in the way of anyone who would create jobs, the solution to that is to get out of everyone's way, not just the big behemoth.

Re: Adding Financial Literacy Courses In Yeshivas
It never was taught until after the war and even then it was a big chidush. I believe R' Moshe was matir among others due to the law necessitating it. But I'm not sure that was the reason.

That is a dangerous statement. If something is broken, do you endeavor to fix it or do you fill the gap with something that might have other negative effects?

I think the disconnect here is your belief that teaching secular studies is inherently bad, while R' Reuven Feinstein believes that it's inherently good aside from the bitul torah issue.
