Re: Car Lease v. Buying
This is a very good point, but with only limited relevance. If you only have enough money for the cheapest lease within the category you require (based on utility - so cheapest compact if you just need to get from A to B, cheapest minivan if you need the extra seats and space, etc.), and can't afford more upfront or more in the monthly payment, then that's absolutely a reason to lease over any other arrangement. You can gamble on a dirt cheap used car instead, but unless you really know what you're looking at when you shop around, you may end up spending more money on the used car overall.

If however, you can afford the $300 lease on a luxury car, but not the full cost or financing payments on said luxury car, then you're just using the lease to live beyond your means. If that's your goal, then go for it, but understand that you're not doing it because it's cheaper, you're doing it because that's the only way you can get a hold of that luxury car.


I lease the cheapest car I can find that gets me from point A to B. I just need a reliable car and don't want to take the risk of buying used.

I have never understood those people who lease what they can't afford to buy.

Re: Call of the Shofar
they only SEEM seem minded so that they come off proffessional. In truth, they believe everyone needs to be Chabad because Chabad is the best. They have a systemic superiority complex. They are disdainful towards anyone frum, who is not them i.e. "misnagdim". They are blind believers in the idea that there chasidus is all they need in life, while many people are suffering. They are heavy drinkers.
I can go on and on and on busting the nice "outer appearance" you described.
They are great at pr, but otherwise sickly closed-minded and brainwashed... In my opinion.
And I have meet Shluchim. Secretly theiragenda is to recruit people for the Rebbe. They take pride in this.

You know, I didn't want it to come to this, as we have nice people from both Chabad and Litvish on this forum, but your hateful, ignorant remarks simply demands a response.

Ever since the founding of Chabad with the Alter Rebbe, (Admur Hazakein) they have been relentlessly persecuted by the Litivish. The term "Misnaged" was coined because of the vicious hatred and relentless persecution.

It's no secret that the Gr"a placed the Alter Rebbe in a Cherem based on false pretenses. He was told false information by some of his followers, and without seeking further evidence placed the Alter Rebbe in a Cherem only adding fuel to the existing bitter hatred coming from the side of the Litvish. Did the Alter Rebbe ever do such a thing to the Gr"a?

It didn't stop there. The Litvish community in Europe sought for years to eradicate Chabad and its followers. Massering on them to the governments, beating them physically in the streets and placing the Chabad Rebbe's in Cherem.

The Frierdiker Rebbe left memoirs describing in detail how his cheder Rebbe was beaten up relentlessly by Litvish thugs.

The things Man Shach said about the Lubavitcher Rebbe was so disgusting that I can't understand until today how he wasn't excommunicated by the Litvish community. The same goes for the things Aron Kotler said about the Frierdiker Rebbe. There wasn't a single incident of the Chabad Rebbe's speaking this way about any Litvish Gadol.

Fast forward to today. Fortunately, the Litvish community has for the most part learned to accept Chabad and understand its way of life and its positive effect on world Jewry. Deny it all you want, but the Litvish community and the Litvish Gedolim laughed at the Rebbe and his "Kiruv" campaigns for years and years, mocking it over and over. Chabad Shluchim have literally given their lives over to bring Jewry throughout the world closer to Yiddishkeit. Suddenly, you have Litvish Kiruv campaigns like Oorah showing off how they are doing Kiruv -- the same thing the Litvish laughed at Chabad for but several decades ago.

Chabad Shluchim that I know are very warm, and they will be warm to you if you are warm to them and don't come into their community starting your own Kiruv campaigns. If you start your own Kiruv, and definitely if you start criticizing THEIR Kiruv, I don't expect them to be warm to you.

Last but not least, to the Litvish members of DDF, I have nothing but respect for you as a fellow Jew.

It would be so much fun to watch  if she has a coughing fit during one of the debates.

I could see Trump taunting her: "Should we call an ambulance?"

I am sure this makes everyone here feel warm and fuzzy. If you want I can post many more. Just let me know.

Rocky J. Suhayda
Chair of the American Nazi Party
"We have a wonderful OPPORTUNITY here folks, that may never come again, at the RIGHT time," Suhayda wrote to Nazi party members in September 2015. "Donald Trump's campaign statements, if nothing else, have SHOWN that 'our views' are NOT so 'unpopular' as the Political Correctness crowd have told everyone they are!"

You are going to lose this argument. There are hate groups on both sides that endorse candidates. Nation of Islam endorsed Obama in '08.

The candidates don't endorse the hate groups, and that is all that counts.

Re: Nespresso Prodigio Machine Plus Aeroccino Milk Frother - Titan - $75 - Best Buy
I never get that

what about the milk?
do you leave the milk out in it over night?

it would be cool if it refrigerated the milk and dispensed it to the milk frother.

ps. nice writeup.

You can have it fetch the milk from your fridge automatically, but you will have to buy the optional robotic arm accessory that costs $104,299.99, and can only be purchased from MIT directly.

But hey, $25 off is not nothing.

Re: Girls banned for wearing leggings on UA News Story
No disagreement on that statement. But I wouldn't call it all manufactured outrage. The fact is that the rules themselves seem to be focused primarily and unfairly on girls, such that (as in this case) the father can wear shorts but the girls can't wear leggings. An unbiased observer would probably feel that a girl in leggings is at least as appropriately attired if not more so than a man in shorts. They have the right to set their own rules, and those who disagree with those rules have the right to say so. That's why it's not the girls themselves who are complaining here but others who are disturbed by the rules

Give me a break. Shorts are sometimes considered formal dress for men. Police officers around the country wear shorts. Furthermore, dress codes will always impose more restrictions on women and girls because men have a very limited array of fashion. For men, it's either a button-down shirt or a T-shirt, Jeans vs dress pants and shoes vs slippers. Only hillbilly men wear sleeveless T-shirts, and only gay men wear very tight clothing. Women can wear anything from ten different types of jeans, long skirts, short skirts, mini skirts, one-piece dresses, one-piece party dresses, tank tops, LEGGINGS, tights, socks, shirts with high necklines, shirts with "low" necklines, tight clothing, very tight clothing, very very tight clothing etc.

Do I even need to explain the obvious? This is FAUX outrage of the highest order. You are flying free, shut up and wear what they tell you to wear.

Re: walmart stopped The pickup discount has another purpose: get people into the store.

The simple fact is that most people won't make a special trip to the store to save $5. Instead, they will plan a shopping at Walmart, and pick up their item along the way.
