Re: US Politics/2016 Election Pick Your Poison Master Thread Trump isn't really a republican, not in the pre-2016 definition anyway. He's a populist with some republican ideas and some pretty outlandish views on free trade and foreign affairs.

He's also done nothing to cut federal spending, even when he had majorities in both houses of congress.

Re: US Politics/2016 Election Pick Your Poison Master Thread
Mr. "Both sides are awful" deflects criticism of himself by talking about how bad other people are
i think it's an accurate statement to say both of those things are awful. Trump's comments were racist, Omar has made several anti-Semitic comments. It's not deflecting to call both out

Giving someone .6 or .8 is taking them to the cleaners. Like when they offer 1.25 for MR.  :)

I know a broker who would offer .6 for spg back when it was going for 2c.. he'd get bites so he kept offering it.

Re: Silent Killer I don't think the problem in our community is pot. You can argue with that but just because many of the people who end up turning to harder drugs also did pot first, doesn't mean that the problem is pot. I know many people with varying degrees of frumkeit who smoke pot with varying regularity, some very often, some very infrequently but I don't see reason to think that it is the cause of greater issues any more than alcohol or anything else (as an aside, the abuse of alcohol in our community is also a major problem.) I think that the fact that the number of people in our community who are smoking pot is growing, is because of the shift of said people more towards the secular world which doesn't see smoking pot as something bad or something that should be stigmatized. Can it lead to bigger problems? Sure, but I think it's another symptom of the same problem, not the problem in and of itself. I think the majority of kids who ends up doing heroin may have started with pot but the reason they ended up doing heroin is not that they smoked pot first. This being said, I am not blind to the problem with opioids that we have in our community. My father happens to be a medical professional who works in this field, not in the Jewish community per se, but he has been involved with frum people before. (If anyone here would like to get in touch with him I would be more than happy to give his contact info privately.) I just don't think that blaming the problem on pot is doing anyone any favors, especially since the number of people who smoke pot in our communities is going to grow as it becomes more accepted and legal in the general population anyway. Just my $.02, you're welcome to disagree but this is how I see it.

Re: Car Repairs Master Thread Any thoughts about purchasing these pair of pads for $88 After 20% off.
 Vs buying the standard ceramic pads for $30-$50?

 Yes the $119 pads are galvanized which would make it last longer, being able to withstand the salt and bad weather without it becoming rusted, and supposedly better braking, less dust..
   But curios what people do here?
@CountValentine @ChaimMoskowitz

Vs the standard from Amazon or AutoZone.

Re: Israel banning Tlaib and Omar! I think that from a PR standpoint, they should welcome them with open arms in their capacity as Congresswomen and say that from the rhetoric they espouse, they clearly don't have an accurate picture of Israel. They should give them grand tours and princely treatment. Then, after they return and keep talking against Israel, they will be fair game, and they won't have the excuse that they were't let in. Israel can say that were glad to show them the truth but they obstinately refused to see.

It would make more sense from the public perception standpoint.

No it doesn't. They were all Orthodox?
How about Modern vs Ultra?

For the purposes of anti-Semitisim, just think of it as "visibly Jewish".

Ultra Orthodox is a slur, but that's a whole nother discussion

I hope the word is not 'Kool-Aid'...

Re: DeBlasio Tweets out fake false news, this time sticking up for the NYPD!
When you only state part of a statue and take it out of context should I believe otherwise.

You posted: ďshall apply only when audible signals are sounded from any said vehicle while in motion by bell, horn, siren, Ē

The statue states: Except for an authorized emergency vehicle operated as a police vehicle or bicycle, the exemptions herein granted to an authorized emergency vehicle shall apply only when audible signals are sounded from any said vehicle while in motion by bell, horn, siren...
Since you are the go to guy for reading this type of stuff you care to explain to them what that statue means? That won't believe me.  :)
You might what to read the statue again.
I never said this. You and others are saying it is illegal for him to go through a red light without sirens on. That is not correct according to the statue.

Sorry, but I just had to :D

Re: Excel Help and Problems
I have 12345 in the first cell. I want every cell under it to increment 1 each time. Easiest way to do it? I need thousands.
If the first cell is A1, then B1 would be =A1+1. Then select B1 and you'll see a tiny box in the bottom right of the cell. Drag that down as far as you want.

September 15, 2019, 08:46:14 PM
Re: Excel Help and Problems The Stop Value needs to be the max value you want. So if you want 100 numbers, your stop value is 12445.

Over here it's not running at all since the stop value is lower than your start value.

(I made this same mistake a few times)

Re: 2019 Israeli election
So no majority means yet another election? WOW could you imagine if we had that here? We would run out of Kool-Aid.  :)

Not quite - essentially the President of the country will recommend to one of the two candidates to form a government - for a bunch of reasons, it's likely that he will turn to Bibi to do that - so he has a few weeks to broker a deal.

Can you explain in terms of our left, right and center? Who is who?

That's definitely complicated, but on a very simplistic level (I'm sure many will argue with these points):

The Right:
Likud - Bibi's party, the 'standard' right-wing party. Politically conservative, and religiously neutral/right leaning.
Shas - Sefardic Religious party - politically right, religiously right. Primary leadership and constituents are jews from Africa/France/Middle East Descent
UTJ (United Torah Judaism) - politically right, religiously right. Primary leadership and constituents are jews from Central/Northern European and American Descent
Yemina - a smaller politically right and religiously right-leaning party who's leaders (Shaked and Bennett) broke away from Likud

The "Center":
Blue and White - led by Gantz. This is a coalition of 3 parties, including the centrist Yesh Atid

Jewish Home - Lieberman's party - they are politically conservative, but somewhat anti-religious (for example, they are in favor of ending the draft exemptions for Charedim, but toe a hard line on the Palestinians, Iran, etc.) They are the outlier, because he politically disagrees with the left, and religiously with the right.

The Left (All politically left, and most are (at least) left-leaning when it comes to religion)
Joint Arab List - This is 4 smaller parties that generally represent that arab population and have Israeli Arab members of knesset. (Israeli Arab = Muslim or Christian Arabs that live within the 1967 borders and have full citizenship).
Labor - The party of Shimon Peres and Yitzchak Rabin, that's fallen off of the map. The old guard Israeli Left
Democratic Camp  - A coalition of parties that are the old-school Israeli "Extreme Left" - including Meretz.

Re: Honestly, honestly do you feel smartphones have improved your quality of life? I think the real question is are you happier since you adopted a smartphone. There is little doubt that we are more efficient and productive than earlier generations in good part due to smartphones ( despite the hours of time they cause us to waste)- remember waiting in line for hours just to pick up textbooks from B&N, or buying products off the shelf  that looked good but broke in no time because there were no user reviews available?

But are we happier, more satisfied, more thinking people? In my experience the answer is a resounding NO.

Re: US Politics/2016 Election Pick Your Poison Master Thread My take:
This whistleblower's allegation is very serious (should be obvious) and definitely warrants an investigation (should also be obvious). There are not enough facts out there yet to make a determination as to how deep this investigation should go and definitely not enough to know how factual the allegations are. That the allegations are hearsay is not relevant to this. Hearsay can be a good reason to investigate. The issue is that so many have already reached their verdict of either guilty or not guilty which by some strange coincidence is almost perfectly correlated with other opinions of theirs about the president. Every single fact is being interpreted to fit into the verdict they have already reached.
