Re: Radar Detector I have a valentine 1
The unique feature about the valentine is that it tells you in what direction the radar is coming from and how many bands it's picking up, which is useful when there's more than 1 cop on the roads

Its not worth it to get a cheap detector bc if it doesn't work as good as the better ones you'll get caught and waste your money

I've had mine for 2 years and it saved me a few times from a cop

Re: The Day After COVID19 -Airlines
Do you understand the vital importance of air travel to the economy? If United Delta & American come to Washington for help Congress will drool to add as many 0's as necessary to that check.
Free market will let someone else come and open up or someone will buy them out

If they are bailed out, its crony capitalism like when banks are bailed out

Why should they get bailed out and not other people

If they get bailed out, then there should be lots of rules that favor the consumer and less payments to the people in charge who make millions

Re: Calculating The Actual Fatality Rate
I've said since day 1, it's just sad that COVID-19 needs to be partisan.
I don't think it has to do with being partisan

Just that there's a limit to how long people are willing to quarantine and have there financial well being be put in jeopardy,
Alot of people can't work from home or are in industries that are being decimated right now

What also frustrates these people is having people whose livelihoods aren't really affected by corona or are well off to handle this storm lecture them on staying home and not making money

Re: Corona virus and your shul
I always wondered why Jews were blamed for the black death.
Always assumed regular anti-semitism, but it makes a little more sense now :(

There's still plenty of anti-semitism, but we need to do better.
Are those same jew haters that are reporting on the jews calling corona the wuhan virus or the Chinese virus?

We didn't start this virus, the chinese did, they should be getting the hate, not jews

Most of the liberal media won't call it the chinese/wuhan virus bc that's racist but that same media will blame the Jews whenever they could during these times

Re: Denmark and Sweden: An apples to apples comparison

This is the truest part of this article. Everyone should be rooting for it to work. I think it was foolish for them to do so, and will vigorously defend the decisions of politicians to use the available data to implement harsh measures to save lives, but if their gamble proves lucky enough to work then we can use that data to ease restrictions without subjecting ourselves as human guinea pigs.

Again, it was a gamble. If it works it will have amounted to a lucky guess. The empirical data we had available (and still have) showed distancing as the most effective and safest measure.
[/quote]

But the US didn't gamble?
We gambled with the economy, jobs, people's livelihoods ..... (will take a long time for it to get back to normal for people)
Not to mention people's rights are being trampled, especially with these draconian laws that don't make sense that the police are enforcing (like in NY, they care more about socail distancing than actual crimes that are committed)

How is that paying off for us?
People are still dying with the lockdown

Listening in the beginning to the models that predicted that millions would die (one of those models was from a guy that works for Bill Gates foundation that predicted with all the other viruses in the past 20 years that millions would die, and we still listen to him)
(Its like listening to the climate "scientists" Greta thunberg on)

Re: Companies filing for bankruptcy
"We now have no viable alternative but to begin the closure of our beloved family business because our insurers, to whom we have paid significant premiums every year for protection against unforeseen circumstances like we are experiencing today, have turned their backs on us at this most critical time," said Century 21 co-CEO Raymond Gindi.

https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.cnn.com/cnn/2020/09/10/business/century-21-bankruptcy-closing/index.html

The statement from the CEO is so misleading. Most insurance policies have a virus exclusion.  Also, there needs to be physical damage for business interruption coverage to be triggered. So no, they did not pay for coverage for the stores closing. There are multiple court cases around the country on this very topic. The insurance policies are clear.
Maybe that's why there's looters so they can get insurance

Re: COVID-19 (Wuhan Novel Coronavirus) Pandemic Master Thread FINALLY SOMEONE HAS SAID IT!!!!!

I have done my best to respect the diverse opinions regarding COVID-19 over these past few months, however the ER nurse that posted this brilliantly sums up my train of thought :
Please just take politics out of it and read this with an open mind using common sense.

"Anyone out there who can tell me what our end game is with the covid 19?

What is the magic formula that is going to allow us to sound the all clear?

Is it zero cases?

The only way that will happen is if we just stop testing and stop reporting.

Is it a vaccine?

It took 25 years for a chicken pox vaccine to be developed.
The smallpox inoculation was discovered in 1796 the last known natural case was in 1977.

We have a flu vaccine that is only 40 to 60% effective and less than half of the US population choose to get one, and roughly 20,000 Americans will die of the flu or flu complications.

Oh, you'll mandate it, like other vaccines are mandated in order to attend school, travel to some foreign countries, etc.

We already have a growing number of anti vaxxers refusing proven, tested, well known vaccines that have been administered for decades but arenít necessarily safe!

Do you really think people will flock to get a fast tracked, quickly tested vaccine, whose long term side effects and overall efficacy are anyone's best guess?

How long are we going to cancel and postpone and reconsider?
You aren't doing in person school until second quarter?

What if October's numbers are the same as August's?

You moved football to spring?

What if next March is worse than this one was?

When do we decide quality of life outweighs the risks?

I understand Covid can be deadly or very dangerous for SOME people, but so are strawberries and so is shellfish.

We take risks multiple times a day without a second thought.
We know driving a car can be dangerous, we don't leave it in the garage. Many speed and don't wear seat belts.

We know the dangers of smoking, drinking and eating fried foods, we do it anyway.

Is hugging Grandma really more dangerous than rush hour on the freeway?

Is going out with friends after work more risky than 4 day old gas station sushi?

Or operating a chainsaw?

When and how did we so quickly lose our free will and give up our liberty?

Is there a waiver somewhere I can sign that says, "I understand the risks, but I choose a life with Hugs and Smiles, and the State Fair and go to Church and go hug my Mom in her retirement home?

I understand that there is a minuscule possibility I could die, but I will most likely end up feeling like crap for a few days.

I understand I could possibly pass it to someone else, if I'm not careful, but I can pass any virus onto someone else.

I'm struggling to see where or how this ends.

We either get busy living or we get busy dying.

When God decides it's your time, you don't get any mulligans, so I guess I would rather spend my time enjoying it and living in the moment and not worrying about what ifs and maybes, and I bet I'm not the only one.

Re: COVID-19 (Wuhan Novel Coronavirus) Pandemic Master Thread Someone sent this to me- great.

From *Rabbi Chananya Weissman*:

*Herd Insanity*

Not too long ago, a daredevil was someone who climbed Mount Everest or jumped out of planes. That's all changed. Right now I'm the bravest person in the room.

I'm willing to shake hands.

This past Shabbos I made it known that I was willing to shake anyone's hand at my minyan. People responded with bewilderment, amazement, and maybe a touch of admiration. But there were no takers. They didn't want to die.

Praying outside on a windy, frigid Shabbos was an acceptable risk, but shaking my hand was asking for it. The benefits were too small, the risk simply not worth it.

I read the Torah on Shabbos, as I do almost every week. Those given an aliya endangered their lives to stand closer to me than usual, but it was only for a few moments, and worth the risk. Despite the added danger, however, none of them saw fit to bentch gomel. Interesting.

None of the men kissed the Torah. One man touched it with the end of his tallis, then brought the tallis up to his mask for a pretend kiss. Apparently, touching the outside of your mask with invisible death is safe enough and in line with current health ministry guidelines.

I made a point of touching the Torah, then kissing my fingers, and announced that I was not afraid it would be the kiss of death. The other men looked at me with astonishment and nervous smiles, unsure if I was crazy, heroic, or the only sane one. That's what the fear and confusion have reduced us to.

A Jew is not supposed to be like this.

We have been reduced to a community of paranoid hypochondriacs, afraid that every breath will kill us, that the most basic human contact is an unreasonable roll of the dice, that everything we once considered normal and even obligatory must be off limits indefinitely Ė in some cases even forever.

This is insane. This is against everything the Torah teaches us.

I am not denying that covid is real and should be taken seriously. At the same time, I am denying that the angel of death is roaming among us, felling people left and right like Biblical plagues. This is not a Biblical plague. There are a million ways we can die, and covid is just another one.

I don't want to get it, and I don't want to give it to anyone else, but the terror that we have been living with for the last year is unjustified. Because of this terror, one third of Israel is currently living in poverty, with many others barely hanging on. Drug and alcohol abuse are up; domestic abuse is up; suicides are up; social workers are overwhelmed; elderly people are dying from loneliness; children are traumatized; parents are falling apart; thousands of businesses have closed forever; and so much more.

They tell us if it saves one life it's worth it. That is a ridiculous bit of propaganda. We are not saving any lives. We are destroying our society and everyone in it Ė except for a very privileged and powerful few.

Worst of all, we are losing our minds, losing our spirits, losing our very humanity.

Chazal teach us that an impoverished person is like a dead person. The government has no moral right to impoverish millions of people, destroying their lives and their families, because it may conceivably protect other people's lives. They have no right to decide whose livelihood is essential, nor whose life is more essential; those who "lock down" their populations should instead be locked up.

If we know someone has covid we should not share the air they breathe. However, it is not the Jewish way to live in terror that everyone around us is infected, and that every object is carrying a deadly virus. It is forbidden to think like this, and it is forbidden to live like this.

It is forbidden to refrain from kissing a Torah because maybe someone else touched it, and maybe they shed some virus particles onto the Torah, and maybe those virus particles will enter your body and kill you and others.

It is forbidden to distance yourself from loved ones, friends, and strangers because you are afraid their breath or touch will kill you, or that yours will kill them, when you have no concrete reason to believe anyone is infected.

God does not want us to live this way. The Torah does not teach us to live this way.

There is no precedent in our history for Jews to live this way, even during the worst of plagues. For a short time, maybe. Even so, it was never like this. The sick were quarantined, and those who were afraid to be near them were absolved from doing so. But it was never imposed on everyone; it was never claimed to be a Torah obligation that blotted out the rest of our existence.

Indeed, Gedolim and tzaddikim would often tend to the sick when others were afraid to go near them. Some of them eventually became sick themselves and died; many did not. That is part of life, and sometimes that is how life ends. If it was someone's time to go, at least it was through helping another person and truly living, otherwise it would have happened a different way.

The notion that we must live in terror, our entire focus devoted to maximizing our chances for survival at the expense of actually living, was never entertained. That's not the Jewish way. It's insane.

Now we are told that unless we take an experimental "vaccine", which has already harmed many people, which tens of thousands of doctors without ties to the establishment and the big corporations have raised concerns about, whose long-term effects are entirely unknown, whose creators haven't even taken it under the ridiculous claim that your life comes first (since when?), and which in a best-case scenario will only reduce one's chance of getting a serious case of covid if he ever catches it at all...we are told that this "vaccine" is obligatory according to the Torah, even though the risks are real, the effects are unknown, and the benefits achievable in safer ways.

Under normal circumstances people would be extremely leery of this. But because everyone is terrified and hysterical, mentally worn down, desperate for any light at the end of the tunnel, they are lured by hype, propaganda, and assurances that it will all be fine.

This is also not the Jewish way. This is also insane.

A Jew who is paranoid, who lives in fear of unseen, entirely speculative dangers, is presumed to be a sinner (Berachos 60A). A Jew is supposed to fear sin Ė but he is not supposed to redefine normal human behavior as a sin so that he can justify being afraid. A Jew is supposed to fear God Ė but he is not supposed to claim that God wants him to live in fear of everyone and everything simply to prolong his existence in this world. God does not want this. It is insane.

When I made it known on social media that I was willing to shake hands, many people applauded, but others were outraged. Some people, including Jews who wear yarmulkas and sheitels, accused me of being a rodef. According to Jewish law, a rodef can be assassinated by anyone, without even a trial, to protect the lives of others. For stating that I was not afraid to shake the hand of a fellow Jew, I was accused in all seriousness of being a rodef.

This is not Judaism. It is utter insanity.

The Mishna in Shabbos (Chapter 2, Mishna 5) teaches that one may extinguish a candle on Shabbos for one of several reasons, including ruach ra'ah, an evil spirit. Rashi explains that this refers to someone who is tormented by what he sees around him, and when he is in darkness he is more comfortable. The Rambam elaborates that some people are tormented by normal human behavior and social company, and extinguishing the light gives them relief. It is such a serious condition that one may violate Shabbos.

My fellow Jews, this is the condition that has overtaken almost all of us. We are tormented by normal human behavior and social company, terrified that every breath or touch might kill us. This is not an appropriate reaction to a virus, even to a severe virus. It is a mental illness, and it is destroying us.

It is indeed remotely possible that shaking hands, kissing a Torah, going to work, opening a business, riding a bus, and other such basic human behaviors will indirectly be the cause of our death. However, according to the Torah we are not allowed to worry about such things Ė even during flu season, and even when there is a virus going around. It is plausible that if we refrain from such normal behaviors, extinguish the candles, and live in darkness that we will prolong our lives.

However, we must recognize that those who live like this are mentally ill. It is forbidden to impose mental illness on others. It is forbidden to declare that we must live with paranoia and hysteria for the sake of life. What life?

The vast majority of us have thankfully survived the last year. But something inside most people is dead.

May God help us wake up and bring the dead back to life.

My thoughts are that the preparations themselves are partially meant to be a political statement to give the message how dangerous Trump is, and almost a defense for the impeachment.

Re: Will you get the COVID vaccine? Shared from a friend. Had a good, but sad laugh over this.

Covid: 1 death is too many.

Vaxxines: Many deaths are no reason for concern, bc itís for the greater good.

Covid: This virus can cause severe side effects. Though rare, we must not turn a blind eye and we must take it seriously as we donít know who will be severely affected.

Vaxxines: Severe side effects are possible, but so rare. Please donít pay attention or let anti-vaxxers scare you away from vaccinations. We donít have any way of knowing who will be affected, but itís a risk we must be willing to take for the good of society.

Covid: Though 99% may have survived Covid with no issues, were unsure of any side effects that could take place in the long term or later down the road. Take this serious.

Vaxxines: You survived your vaccine and youíre fine. Anything that happens down the road is not associated with the vaccine.

Covid: Man has heart attack after being diagnosed with Covid. Though most likely rare, we now know Covid can cause heart attacks!

Vaxxine: Boy has seizure after receiving vaccine. This is likely a coincidence and has nothing to do with the vaccine. If it was a result of the vaccine, this is very rare. No reason to be alarmed.

Covid: Man diagnosed with Bellís Palsy after being diagnosed with Covid. Family says we must take this seriously. Wear your mask and social distance and be afraid.

Vaxxine: 4 people diagnosed with Bells Palsy after receiving vaccines. While most likely a coincidence, Bellís Palsy resolves on its own and its nothing to worry about.

Covid: Believe science. Believe doctors.

Vaxxine: I believe in science, except THIS science and all those doctors and scientists must be quacks.

Covid: HCQ doesnít work, even though tons of doctors are prescribing it and have had success. Even though itís a 50 year old drug that thousands take daily with no issue. We did a rushed study and a couple of people had bad reactions. Therefore, Itís not safe and we must block people from using it. We donít know long term effects and we cannot chance it.

Vaxxines: Please take this extremely rushed vaccine that hasnít had time to be properly tested, has NOT been approved by FDA (only approved through EAU - Emergency Auth Use), and please ignore any side effects and donít worry about any long term effects. The risk is something we must take to help us get rid of this virus that already has a 99% survival rate. But we also arenít sure if it even stops transmission, so continue to wear a mask and social distance. We also donít know if it gives you immunity, so you will need a shot every 4-6 months

Covid: Sorry, I donít believe posts and articles coming from that news site and I donít care if youíve done youíre own unbiased research. I donít even care about your anectodal evidence.

Vaxxines: I havenít done any research on my own, but I believe what CNN and MSNBC tell me and I have my own anecdotal evidence
