Re: Trump-Republican tax plan bad for large families
How would this tax plan look different if people were able to vote on it instead of elected officials? Would that be a better structure?

I'm asking this only partly hypothetically- we almost have the technology today to get rid of elected officials entirely and replace them by giving voters the ability to weigh in on every issue directly.

The Founders chose a Representative Democracy over a Direct Democracy quite deliberately. 

ETA:  Here's an easy read:

Re: Where can i get it? (israel edition)
NEVER post a picture of a key online

How are you gonna find my house?

I agree, in general, it's a bad idea to post a picture that shows the cuts.  That wasn't necessary to determine the type of key.

We'll have to see how it plays out but I did just look up some diaper rash cream (not for me) and it was more online than in the store and I don't think it showed a p/u discount.

I use diaper rash cream for many off label purposes.  Nothing to be embarrased about ;D

Re: Crypto currency and using your credit card to buy it!
No one knows the exact price when a bubble bursts, sure can go up much higher,this is a classic mania,  if analysts know they will not be analysts, they will be enjoying life in Monaco or the French Riviera sipping cocktails :)

I read this a while ago. Found it to be a fascinating read into the mindset of how quickly people can mentally human life as automatically worth respecting. I think it as worthwhile to read as The Wave.

Quite a read.  Just finished it.  I don't know how a moral society can allow this.  Far more important than tax reform, ACA repeal, or anything else for that matter is prison reform.

Re: Prison
Binary options issued by FINRA licensed firms may are pure gambling. All others are outright scams. I havent been in the stock market for 7 years so I dont know if there are legitimate binary options platforms. All those I've seen advertised on the frum websites are outright scams to steal your money.

You were trading binary options?

I suspect it's a bluff intended to get the Arabs to jump at what ever deal he offers as an alternative at the last minute.
