Re: Rubashkin freed from prison.
Sorry did not mean to ignore your post. You come up with valid points. I am glad you posted for everyone to see that there were children working at this plant and according to you at all these plants. The thing is I don't care when it comes to children. That is not just about this individual. I would say the exact same thing if it was the Pope. It is not my job to come up with a solution and I am not going to try.
No one denied there were underage workers there. It's a strawman that *you* created and beat down. Saying you would feel the same if it was the pope says nothing about agri's actions, it's just empty moral grandstanding on your part which has no bearing on Rubashkin.

Even with the testimony of the minors (which was fraught with contradictions and many issues) he was cleared. Because he did nothing wrong (in that regard). You thinking that you're "all about the kids" without even a semblance of a clue how anyone should solve the problem doesn't make anyone else guilty, it just makes you feel good about yourself.

Re: Random questions.
It would be a nice poll showing how isolated some are.  ;)

Re: Are You An Organ Donor?
Thank you - I know @aygart is dependable, as is @hvaces42 . This is what I was driving at. Kavod Hameis is not the primary issue. Chilul Shabbos for a non jew (AKA the Noah Feldman issue) is a very different sugya, much discussed in 2005 or whenever that was
Thank you. Exactly.

The way these threads end up going is that people start twisting themselves into pretzels to explain something they really don't understand themselves and end up saying things which are both wrong and look bad. I will not participate.

Is a blind person not compared to the dead?
So is a poor person. That does not mean it is an absolute comparison. It is דומה comparable which does not mean equivalent.

Re: Are You An Organ Donor?  As an aside, by being an organ donor your death  becomes much more valuable to the medical field than your life. Ask icu personnel how/if this affects how they treat patients.

Re: Vaccine Discussion Master Thread
Dear Friends,
Bsiyata Dshmaya we have formed The Vaccine Coalition, a Coalition of Non-Vaccinating Parents in Lakewood, New Jersey.
This coalition was founded by R Malkiel Kotler shlita, R Shmuel Meir Katz shlita and R Refael Szmerla shlita, and it aims to address the current pressing issue of schools rejecting or dismissing non-vaccinated children. It will also be available to help non-vaccinating parents in Lakewood in any area we feel we can, as well as to provide support of strength in numbers to pro-vaccine choice Lakewood families.
This coalition depends on a collective voice and will not be launched until we reach a minimum of 250 families. If you live in Lakewood and have made a decision not to vaccinate your children, we encourage you to please take a few moments to sign up to join the coalition, for your benefit, and for the benefit of all other Lakewood families like yourselves.
 By joining the coalition you agree to have your name and personal information added to our private database. Your information will never be released to a third party without your permission. If the coalition should find it absolutely necessary to release your name in the course of assisting it's members you may receive an email requesting your permission.  Any such instance will be authorized by the Rosh Hayeshiva R Malkiel Kotler shlita beforehand.
The success of this endeavor is contingent on enlisting as many non-vaccinating families as possible. Please take the time to reach out to your friends and family who dont vaccinate and encourage them to join.

To join, please visit Alternatively you can join by emailing or call/ text 732-806-7739
Do people lose respect for gedolim that agree to stuff like this? Or is it a, they just don't know science how the world works outside torah type thing, but for torah related stuff they are still a gadol?

Famous question with the rambam and medicine, just wondering practically about now a days.
