Re: Verizon Grandfathered Unlimited Plan - 2 Lines $1200 covers everything? No monthly charges?

Re: Verizon Grandfathered Unlimited Plan - 2 Lines To clarify, this isn't a savings, but paying $1200 on the hope that the throttle threshold is higher?

Or am I missing something?

Re: Budget to penalize large families!
For every study there's another study showing the opposite.

It's like that in all sciences, climate, economics and all others. Each side spins for their side.

For you not to care about the fact, that literally hundreds of thousands of frumme yidden will be losing a lot of money. And many of them are genuinely poor. Because of some study and economics sevara you just read about. Shows me you don't care enough. Sorry, that's what I believe to be true.

Are you an Economist? Do you realize there are Nobel winning economists who laugh out loud when they hear about all this trickle down economics theory.
1. Let me explain something, and I hope it is clear enough. The study I posted is about fact. It isn't conjecture or economic theory.

There is a problem with the current status quo. For a family of 6 or 2 or 20 to come off programs, the people in the household with earning potential, need to be able to make more via working than via programs. That's a fact. You can argue, but that is a fact. It's a simple numbers game. If programs (A) is more than working (B) then what would any thinking person do? They would take option A as it is larger.

(So far, no "trickle down" economics or the like. Just as issue that needs to be solved, unless we want people to remain on programs long term.)

Agree? If not, please explain.

2. To solve the above issue, in a simple math equation solution when A is more than B and you want to reverse that, you can either raise the amount a job would earn or lower the amount programs give. This also is a fact. It's mathematics. In first grade. Not economist with agenda math. Not new math. The big old > or < math.
It may have a different solution (ask an economist), but the simplest solutions are to raise one or lower the other.

Again, so far, no trickle down economics or other mumbo gumbo. Just math.

3. How do you solve the above issue? This is where economists or conjecture comes in. It seems that the President thinks that we should lower programs. You can argue, and feel that we should raise wages. That is your right to an opinion.

4. You can claim that it is racist and a cover up etc. I can't prove your conspiracy theory wrong. But so far, you've mentioned racism (fact), cover up (fact), you've contradicted your own statements (fact), haven't responded to others (fact), and have labeled others that disagree with you (fact). I don't know for sure, but I think maybe you're thinking a wee bit emotionally, and not logically.

If you'd like to respond, fine, but please don't label me as someone who doesn't care enough, just because I don't think it's a conspiracy or cover up or racist.

I think the President has made an economic decision, that is hurting frum families, but I b'etzem don't disagree with it. I, as well as you, can call my Congressman and ask for him to put some pork barrel into the budget, in order to help frum Yidden. However, I view it as such, not a cover up or ideological attack.

Re: Do you Daven?
This entire thread has very little to do with being right or wrong.

What it does for me is show me that if I can respect @shiframeir as good person, then I should be able to do so for my own husband.
Even without ShifraMeir, I would tell you that he has nisyonos, and when you talk to him, he agrees it isn't right.

So he's struggling. And it isn't easy.

And while it may seem easy, because of his father and FIL, for him it isn't.

Re: Airline Gift Cards And Vouchers Master Thread
Can we ban him from buying on the forum? Even after spending hours and showing him I didn't get a refund he is still trying to pursue it on Paypal.
Whoa! That's pretty drastic of him. However, he did post a week ago that he wasn't getting a response from you.
Obviously there is more going on here...

Either way, I'm not sure what is going on here from either side. He bought a gift card. He got a refund. Whether a partial refund for what happened or a partial refund because his flight got cancelled for weather and he drove, it gets refunded back to the GC. That isn't the seller's issue to refund.
Full stop.
That means that the buyer has a GC balance for the future to use. It's one of the drawbacks of buying a GC to use.
What the buyer is entitled to is access to the GC to use. Is that being given? It's the buyer's issue to deal with United and trying to find it.

For those that need an example: If I buy a GC for a restaurant, and I order over the phone for delivery, they run the GC and send the order. When they deliver the food, I realize they messed up the order. I call and they say they'll refund the GC. It isn't the seller's issue at all. It's my issue to find the refund and use it in the future. It doesn't matter if the seller called in the payment with the GC or I did. Only thing seller "owes me" is access to the GC.

Re: Airline Gift Cards And Vouchers Master Thread
Well a couple things. Its a Gift Registry and not a Gift Card. And my gift registry didn't update the balance unfortunately. And he claims ALL this happened AFTER he finished his flight, lol.

SO after spending hours trying to find his money to give him the refund with phone calls and tweets and all, he's still going via Paypal. I don't think we follow halacha here, but I think we try. We don't have terms here but to do our best. Which I did. I'll win in Paypal, I've already sent my documents. But if he doesn't want to follow halacha (hamotzi mchaveiro) and despite my best efforts, I caution anyone to work with him in the future.

Simple question:
Have you given him access and said "figure it out yourself"?
