Re: Vaccine Discussion Master Thread
now all the ones who don't give shots should know that because of them a nice few heimishe fathers wont be able to see there wife's and children before yom tov or on chol hamoed, this is 2 times when a lot of family and friends go visit there loved ones who sit in jail!!

That’s the least of the problems. You have hundreds of non Jewish prisoners who can’t receive visits “because of the Jews “. Talk about איבה

Re: Dan's Tesla Thread
Of course. It doesn't add much at this point in time and regular autopilot is now standard.
You can also buy a cheaper Tesla over the phone/in store.

But why would you buy from a company that can't even manage to put together a simple message board

Re: Abortion = Murder?
By the way, it's interesting to note that before the giving of the Torah, Pharaoh commanded the midwives to kill the Jewish male infants while the mother was on the birth stool. Of-course they risked their lives and refused to do it. Isn't that late stage abortion?
Ummm no. If they already saw the gender of the baby then it would be post live birth.

I hate to break it to you. Just because you are convinced of the veracity of some tenant of democracy does not mean the Torah accords with it.

I am skeptical as the the reliability of that article as 9t kept pointing out that things were GMO. Considering that there's zero evidence that GMOs are bad, yet they felt the need to continuously point them out anyway.

Every single posek agrees that standard abortion is murder.

This is not so simple even though all agree that abortion for convenience is forbidden.

God of the world, when will the pain end?

The trick is (if you're not embarrassed) you've got to one up the "friend". You have to get a SD card that's preloaded and give it to your child. (Obviously if you know for sure that they will purposely watch those things then don't.) Then tell them

חיים והחיים לפניך ובחרת בהחיים

Then only if you want you should daven that they make the right choice.

At least that's what I would do.

But this is exactly what I thought of right away

Correct, the tax money is earmarked for schools. If you want it, make an approved school.

The "middle ground" would be something like 3 hrs per day. Secular studies from 230-530 isn't crazy.
An alternative middle ground we be results on various standardized test. If they can meet standards in less time all the power to them.

July 12, 2019, 12:41:51 PM
I had 2-2.5 hours of daily secular studies in high school and only had 3 years of it. Still managed a 1420 on the SAT, skipped college, and got a 3.98 GPA in business grad school.

4.4 hours seems excessive. Negotiating tactic?
It's not a negotiating tactic as there is very little communication from the education department to the yeshivos, and it was already supposed to be implemented but the court voided it.

July 12, 2019, 01:59:49 PM
In public, there has no been a good faith effort to actually work on the length. Sure, if we're talking 4.5 vs. 3, that's fair. But the community isn't even publicly behind that.

Major Rabbanim and Rosh Yeshivas went to Albany to discuss, and although they had originally been assured that the new guidelines would be a joint effort, the state went back on their word.

Overall, the point is that the state can certainly set expectations of what our students should know, there's no reason for them to dictate how we teach it, and how much time we spend on it.

Never mind that we have the text of the bill with the video of her saying the bill - specifying Nazi, Japanese & Apartheid boycotts - is talking about BDS. Never mind that she put it in her damn press release. In the face of that, *I'm* the one that's not being objective? Please.

The community has nothing to do if a drug is a gateway drug or not. If kids are going from pot to heroin in the Jewish community the problem is not pot. Spend your time and resources address the root of the problem not chasing a rabbit down a hole.

Re: The Holocaust
What about the swiss and polish who generations later (and probably still today) are hiding and not returning all what was taken during the war.
I always wondered if there is any data on how much revenue the most famous tourist attraction in Poland, known as "Auschwitz-Birkenau" generates into the Polish economy.

The fact that such a slaughter factory was placed precisely on that place, among those inhabitants, is a significant sign on the nature of that culture, I even doubt if they would be able to establish that close to a civilized Berlin or Frankfurt. Yet in the same time the Polish are literally allergic to any sort of associating that with Poland and even criminalized it.

Which brings me back to my above question, how much revenue does the 1.5 million visitors to Auschwitz a year generate into their economy? Do they have any measures taken to invest ALL those earnings, not just the actual admission fees into the camps, but all lodging, eatery, and transportation industries yieldings into Holocaust memorial or such? If that's not the case, then we are witnessing today in 2019 the worst interpretation of "הרצחת וגם ירשת", not just inheriting the victims fortunes but monetizing their shed blood.

“Finally,” concluded the editorial, “while we would not sink to name-calling in the Trumpian manner — or ruefully point out that he failed to spell the congressman’s name correctly (it’s Cummings, not Cumming) — we would tell the most dishonest man to ever occupy the Oval Office, the mocker of war heroes, the gleeful grabber of women’s private parts, the serial bankrupter of businesses, the useful idiot of Vladimir Putin and the guy who insisted there are ‘good people’ among murderous neo-Nazis that he’s still not fooling most Americans into believing he’s even slightly competent in his current post. Or that he possesses a scintilla of integrity. Better to have some vermin living in your neighborhood than to be one.”

Re: Its Open Season on Jews
That attacks in Jews are not taken as seriously as attacks on other minorities.
It has 2 parts. One is who they are against and the other is who perpetrated the attacks. As soon as there is an attack by a white supremacist it moves right over to the ideology and rightfully so. It doesn't do the same when it is the other way around, in fact some still blame it on whoits supremacists!

Re: Iran's Top Terrorist Taken Out By The U.S.
No one knows at this point. I believe they targeted military assets. They made it clear this was Iran taking this action and not proxies as many of you predicted they would use. This was an act of war. I am grateful Trump backed down. You all say I never give Trump credit. He gets 100% credit for this not going further. So please bookmark this when the lies start/continue that I never give him credit.
For the record you would have lost this bet. They did mess with us. There action was war like. The reason we there is not a war now is because our coward president backed down after being attacked. See how easy it is to spin it the way you want to.
lol. Bookmarked this.
