Re: POLL: Calling in the U.S. military to supplement city police forces.
What kind of warped logic is that? If the potential con was killing a million people, would you still say the pro's are definite and cons are maybe?
ok. Now you lost me.
You made a good point, he counters with a relatively good point and then you accuse him of
warped logic
while comparing
1. potential for escalating the violence round;
2. possibility of disobedience & damage to the military chain of command & reputation
To
killing a million people
now we've escalated to an to irrational
I stay out of this fray but y'all, on both sides, have turned me apolitical with this nonsense.
Now I'm sure you'll come back and say you never compared the two despite the quotes and say I have reading comprehension issues bla bla bla but these forums have downgraded into such nonsense lately, I couldn't help but add my own.

Re: Lawsuits Alleging Religious Discrimination - Covid 19 So far what I've taken away from the forums the past couple of weeks....
If I'm on my way to religious services and I'm stopped, I should say I'm just protesting.
If I'm on my way to protest after curfew, I should say I'm on my way to religious services, @CountValentine  is the only one who gets out, and do as I say, not as I do ואידך פירושא. זיל גמור. (Actually don't. It'll just be a giant waste of brain power)

With a rental car you know it was maintained and serviced regularly, which is a pro compared to many used cars.

Re: Defunding police is the answer to racism?
Glad you understand what defunding means.  ::)
it means different things to many different people. According to protesters in Minneapolis it means shutting down the police department.

Quote from: KSAT
That depends on who you ask, said Philip McHarris, a doctoral candidate in sociology at Yale University and lead research and policy associate at the Community Resource Hub for Safety and Accountability.

Some supporters of divestment want to reallocate some, but not all, funds away from police departments to social services. Some want to strip all police funding and dissolve departments.
Since you couldn't be bothered to look up the definition, I did it for you.
Quote from: Oxford Dictionary
de·fund
/dēˈfənd/
Learn to pronounce
verbUS
prevent from continuing to receive funds.
"the California Legislature has defunded the Industrial Welfare Commission"

Fine, I'll bite: No, not everyone is a racist. No, it is not human nature to be a bigot.

Re: Corona virus and your shul

Mistrust of government and politicians

I agree with almost everything you write. Regarding trusting science and govt,
The scientists and govt officials knowingly mislead the country regarding wearing masks. Now, maybe they were justified maybe they weren't but the bottom line is that when you lie to someone, even for a good reason there will breakdown of trust.

Re: Defunding police is the answer to racism?
It's a good point, but I think there is a legitimate answer. (Perhaps not the true answer, but a real answer in any event.)

Look at where 3,000+ years of persecution has left us? We are accepted here, have full opportunity, and can achieve any goal we wish to.

Look where 400+ years has left them? Subject to racial inequality, statistically overwhelmingly poor and unprivileged.
if accepted includes being the subject of knockout games, swastikas painted on our doors, and cat calls of go home, or Hitler should have finished, then yes, we've made it in life. Full integration.

Re: COVID-19 (Wuhan Novel Coronavirus) Pandemic Master Thread
They are not required to mask. You going to pretend they are safe?
no idea. As one epidemiologist put it to me, "we're all part of the world's biggest science experiment".
Since wearing a mask is at best a small discomfort that everyone can get used to fairly quickly, I'm big proponent of enforcing masks since experts tell that that has the best potential for stopping the spread.
I personally still wear a mask. My rational is similar to my rational for wearing a seatbelt. Although a seatbelt hasn't saved my life or prevented injury in 33 years, I still wear it because it's at best a tiny, tiny discomfort which has the potential to save my life. (Seatbelts actually have a longer history of saving lives than masks do)
When asked by someone in Lakewood why I'm wearing a mask, I responded , if I'm wrong, I've gone through minor discomfort and look a bit strange. If your wrong then people will start dying. "

Re: The Day After
My 2 cents:

Anyone who had a real business, which had solid fundamentals and was run 100% kosher, will be fine. He got a PPP, got/will get an EIDL, and will get Main Street lending. If he laid off employees, they got basically full income and are ready to come back end of July at the latest.

Interest rates are low, anyone in resi or multifam Real Estate will be fine, his property will only be more valuable now.

Nursing homes were handed very large grants and will have a lot more gov funding after this as well, to make up for higher payroll and less patients. Actually, this crises may have saved the industry.

All medical will do very well.

Retail sucked since early 2010's, don't blame covid. Jewish (specialized) retail is already back to full boom in the tri-state.

Simchas will not change (except only in the very very short term).

Anyone in Amazon, well - thats what happens when you get into someone else business, Bezos calls the shots. It's a risk that is unrelated to Covid. And now online sales will pick up so hang in there, 2021 will be a homer.

And any guys who worked for cash "schwartz" or stam churn here and there: Get a normal job and do things right, because when things go south the gov will now take care.

Proof all the this true - the markets.
your wrong. Depends on the business.
Take a successful caterer. The real money to be made is on big events. Fundraisers, large weddings, corporate events , etc. If a caterers business revolved around such events, those events are over in my locale through mid 2021 at least.
You can't stay afloat that long with reimagining the whole business concept and turning into a takeout store.
Just one example...
Of course you can reinvent your business model but that's hardly called "your business surviving" that's opening a new business.

Re: Is the need to feel safe white privilege?
If someone experiences anti-Semitism does that mean they understand what a black person goes through with racism? The same questions goes with the situations reversed.
nope
But this conversation is really pointless.
Of course going experiences allow to us to have a unique I understanding of a situation that others don't have, but that doesn't preclude those same people from empathizing with the suffering individual or community.
A therapist is not required to allow themselves to suffer a specific tragedy in order to help individuals through said tragedies.  Part of empathy is acknowledging that you cannot truly understand the suffering (even if you had a similar experience since no individuals are alike) while at the same time using the tos at our disposal to mitigate further suffering

The seats next to the hatch obviously cannot not be at the window, so the 2 seats are next to each other. If the plane is full, it's the worst seat. Otherwise it has the most room and these seats are considerably smaller than standard seats and don't have armrests.

Re: Which hotels have Two bedroom suites?
Moko - What is the rate of success in getting the upgrades to a suite (when there are suites at the hotel)? What level of loyalty status is that with?

Thanks
IME, approx 90%.
I've only been turned down a couple of times when I really tried to get it. Sometimes, I'll request a confirmed upgrade from the hotel to a one bedroom immediately after booking and then request an upgrade to a two bedroom when checking (usually online).
Most of our success has been with TownePlace and Residence Inn, though we've also received such upgrades at an occasional Comfort Suites (2 bedrooms are rare), Hyatt House, Embassy Suites,  Staybridge Suites, Sonesta ES, and Candlewood Suites.
Most recent upgrade was winter break at the awesome Residence Inn, Neptune, NJ in mid February.

Re: Master Thread Of Jack6941's Awesome Amazon/Walmart Deals
I got in on this just before the price jumped over $100.
I happened to have been in the market for such a bag and was about to pull the trigger on the Amazon basics one when I noticed this. Thanks.
just took it for a test drive today. By the time my trip is over I'll have tried it on 4 different aircraft.
TL:DR version: it's a gorgeous looking, luxurious feeling briefcase but has some serious flaws as a carry-on .

Now for the review: it's basically an oversized briefcase clipped onto a trolley. I'll post some pics after I get home.
From rear to front.
It has a double zippered sleeve to slide over a larger suitcase when not using the trolley.
Then large pocket at the rear with a separate laptop sleeve insert. I don't really see the point, but they tout it as TSA friendly... Who doesn't have TSA pre  ???
The next pocket is your "office pocket" with a bunch of different document, card, and pen pockets.
After that, is the 2 inch expandable zipper, followed by a slim full size pocket on the front of the bag which I found convenient for my laptop.
Lastly, 2 side by side small front pockets meant for cellphones and the like. This pocket has a pretty serious flaw, since the "clasp" is a fake buckle magnetic button which opens fairly easily.
The trolley overall feels flimsy and poorly designed.
The wheels stick out a bit on each side of the bag and seem to constantly get caught on corners and aircraft seats. Surprisingly, it fit on a 200 overhead when place face down, wheels out.
The clips also seem like they can put too much strain on the bag
