Re: 2016 Election Pick Your Poison Master Thread I'm not so sure the whole trump movement will just slink off silently and be forgotten...

I predict that a Trump/Sanders type candidate will win next time around

Honestly, if I lose my account it's not the end of the world, but I need to get my spouses primary account back! We have important information on google drive that we can't afford to lose. Yes, I'm an idiot for doing this, but sheesh :(
If your drive account is also on a PC, stuff may be saved locally

If the message is harmful then it should be stifled. If not it should be continued and honed to make it be the best message possible.
Let's put this to rest. You don't know what you're talking about as far as actual facts on the ground.
Yes, you linked a few studies that are tangentially related. But due to the complexity and insularity of the community, your concerns are so minor, they pale in the face of the clear and present danger of dismissing the problem as almost not applicable to us.

Re: Any recommendations for cleaning tzizis without tangling them? Here's something:

People spend hundreds of dollars on an esrog noeh, but have no problems wearing a yellowed, blackened, smelly, torn, putrid, sweat stained, herring stained and mangled talis.

Evey six months, soak and scrub your talis in a bathtub with tide. Hang dry, make sure to untangle and tighten the strings while wet. Then spend 15 minutes ironing it. And ironing in the creases.

Re: Lakewood NJ Master Thread

The concept already exists in the secular world called "pop up restaurants". It can target higher end customers who are already dulled by the menu of the local high end places and are looking for new and exciting food. It's true that there may not be enough such people in Lakewood to support such a business model. Time will tell.

There are plenty of high end dulled people in Lakewood bh

Re: Trump banning 7 major Muslim countries citizens entry into the US
From a legal standpoint, a federal judge can overturn an executive order from the POTUS?

In any case I have an inside feeling that if the Trump administration is not going to do any revisions on this order this is not going to end very pretty.
Yes, it's called checks and balances. It makes this country great.

Re: Pesach Program in Greece Cancelled Just Now!

Haven't had such odd non-sequitur, hard to decipher the point of, holier-than-thou, circular logic responses since CBC in his feistier era before Chaikel suspended him.
I honestly don't know why I bother.

Hey! So very offensive.

To even entertain the thought that the Chaikel ban had any positive values or results... (it was actually more like a total meltdown of proper moderation procedures etc etc etc etc. Been discussed of course.
 {what's happening to me? I actually have zero interest in fighting about this }

And then to lump me in together with the most militant of all lubavitures is just scandalous.

Re: Pesach Program in Greece Cancelled Just Now!
People aren't really speaking the same language here. Someone who makes pesach at home with each kid contributing hand made arts and crafts and divrei torah to the table, helping to bake the pesach dishes, portion out the matzah and Maror, taking turns serving & bringing washing water for zeidy etc., setting up props for the makos and acting them out, marching around the house to bitzeis yisroel, spending most of yom tov (and chol hamoed if you focus on the right venues) focused on the kids without too many distractions etc. there is no way they can appreciate the hotel scene. I've had guests come to my home who've been to some pretty decent pesach programs with their parents when they were growing up and they wistfully remark that they never knew what they were missing by not having experienced pesach at home.

On the other hand, those who go to the programs can't fathom how one can enjoy yom tov if they would have to non stop cook clean up and serve and be stuck in the house with nothing exciting for the kids to really do and hours of work with no down time for the parents for themselves.

Then again there are families who stay home and have a stressful time of it and really would do better in a hotel environment.

Bottom line is there is nothing like an at home pesach experience when it is done right, but not everyone is able to pull it off in the right atmosphere and a program is actually not a bad option for them.....

Lastly there are the programs where to goal is non stop hedonism, gorging on culinary dishes and dubious entertainment options for eight days straight while the kids are whisked out of sight so mom and dad can give their undevided attention to their pleasure trip while acknowledging that it happens to be pesach with a token Seder and a lecture or two where they are passive participants. I have nothing but pity( was going to say contempt but really pity is much more appropriate)for these folks because their choice of venue is just a symptom of the fact that they have no idea of the significance of the unbelievable holiday they are turning their backs on, a lifestyle where success is measured in terms of things and status, rather than relationships and personal growth, or both.

Re: Rental market implosion in Lakewood- implications
At best the mortgage payment would be a wash even after factoring in equity, more likely a losing proposition vs renting. As far as the fear of being squeezed down the road by rising rent prices, rent prices are almost certain to rise but that would only factor in to your rent vs buy calculation if you think house prices will be rising as well. If you think the market is softening (which in all likelihood it is) then it makes sense to take advantage of the low rent prices now, and then buy when rent prices start to go up....

From an economic perspective, the average Lakewood family living on a budget should definitely be renting at this time.

Iv run the numbers, it makes zero economic sense to purchase new construction now...

Re: Budget to penalize large families! I warned about this in the poison thread throughout the election cycle... Trump is the worst thing that happened to the frum community.

It didn't stop the Lakewood and chasidish crowd from stupidly cheering on Trump as the Titanic was sinking.

But don't expect to hear a word of sanity from the yated and our other publications...

And it's going to cost the frum taxpaying community much more in eidim support and tzdakah. So don't even try convincing me that frum business owners are better off.. this affects the entire community terribly.

Re: Budget to penalize large families!

The more income you make, gradually your benefits get cut. There is no HUGE leap. By the time you get close to the income limits, you are hardly making any money on benefits.

There factually is no huge leap!

There used to be a huge health insurance leap (even though that was also somewhat gradual, first the father {and mother when not pregnant} lost it, then the mother and children lost it) but now with Obamacare, health insurance is also gradual. (Maybe not enough, but we're discussing FS here)

And EIC is capped at 3 children either way.

There is an argument to be made that programs make people not work. But it has nothing to do with family size.

There is nothing gradual about loosing health insurance. You go suddenly from virtually free health, to paying 15k a year in premiums w high deductable. I know many who hesitate to ask for a raise/look for a new job when at the threshold.

Re: Keeping Up With The Kushners Actually, these definitions are discussed extensively by the poskim. There are quite a few categories of Jews - a mumar lehachis, a mumar leteavon, a mumar ledovor echod, a mechalel shabbos bepharhesia, a choiteh that we assume repented a tinok shenishba etc

These catagories of frumness have halachic implications in many areas.

You are using a false absolute. Do you feel that self control is not a factor at all in the vast majority of addictions? If so how can a 12 step plan possibly help at all?
Is self control a component in the cure for schizophrenia? If yes then is schizophrenia just a lack of self control, or a Bonafide mental illness?

Re: Messianism among Lubavitch

I wouldn't go so far as to say they were directly led astray, .

As a non chabadsker, you should please properly study the Torah, the directives, and the actions of the leadership. - I doubt you have properly done this. - an unbiased person would objectively see the truth. - there are hundreds of strange and suspect sayings, actions that directly caused the confusion.etc etc. Etc.

I would guess that your familiarity of chabad world view is limited to what you heard from the opposition.

Re: Messianism among Lubavitch The whole concept of "nosi hador" is an invention. It makes no sense and is misleading. Wholly unesessary term.

Re: Messianism among Lubavitch
And the other viznitz don't believe their Rebbe is the manhig/nosi hador?
Noone but chabbad use term nosi hador.

Words matter. This term was coined to induce some kind of dynastic royalty attributed to the last couple of leaders.

No chassidim use this anywhere near in an extreme way as chabbad.

Re: Messianism among Lubavitch
How many Lubavichers do you know that won't ever say the Rebbe is mashiach in public but will tell you behind closed doors after a few shots? Thousands probably?

No reason the same can't apply elsewhere.

That's why I don't buy the Dan's whole "fringe luny aurgument".

Re: Hurricane Irma
The Lubavitcher Rebbe never reasoned WHY the Holocaust happened. Further, these concepts are often foreign to judaism, Avraham tried to save sedom and amorah, evil cities, purely of the merit of 10 righteous.

The gemara (or Rambam?) says an ir hanidachas is spared if there is 1 house with a mezuzah in it.

Truly yes there have been times where entire communities were destroyed for the sins of a few but its foolish to assign reasons why things do or do not happen
Foreign??! Achzorius!

מצות עשה מן התורה לזעוק ולהריע בחצוצרות על כל צרה שתבא על הצבור. שנאמר על הצר הצורר אתכם והרעותם בחצוצרות. כלומר כל דבר שייצר לכם כגון בצורת ודבר וארבה וכיוצא בהן זעקו עליהן והריעו.

הלכה בעריכה

ודבר זה מדרכי התשובה הוא. שבזמן שתבוא צרה ויזעקו עליה ויריעו ידעו הכל שבגלל מעשיהם הרעים הורע להן ככתוב עונותיכם הטו וגו'. וזה הוא שיגרום להסיר הצרה מעליהם.

הלכה געריכה

אבל אם לא יזעקו ולא יריעו אלא יאמרו דבר זה ממנהג העולם אירע לנו וצרה זו נקרה נקרית. הרי זו דרך אכזריות וגורמת להם להדבק במעשיהם הרעים. ותוסיף הצרה צרות אחרות. הוא שכתוב בתורה והלכתם עמי בקרי והלכתי גם אני עמכם בחמת קרי. כלומר כשאביא עליכם צרה כדי שתשובו אם תאמרו שהיא קרי אוסיף לכם חמת אותו קרי.
