Re: Everyday day things that you now say "Wow glad I have that". BREAKING: Chicago Jew maintains non-Jewish slaves to man his bathroom

An allegedly Jewish Chicago man has admitted to utilizing slave labor to turn his sinks on on the Jewish holy day of Shabbos. The man, identified only by his handle of "CountValentine," has specified that he seeks out "goys," or non-Jews, for this labor.

"I have a goy waive (sic) his hand over it," the Chicago native wrote on a popular deals forum site, in response to a question of how to activate an electric water faucet on Shabbos.

Jews are forbidden to activate electric devices on their holy day, which begins Friday at sundown and culminates Saturday night.

"Who would've believed that in the 21st century, such behavior can take place," flaming community activist [insert name] spewed. "And the Jews want to know why there is Antisemitism in America?"

Staff of [media outlet] were not able to confirm the Jewish ethnicity of the perpetrator, but his frequenting of the predominantly Jewish deals forum site "Dan's Deals Forums" points to that conclusion.

Re: What grade do you give Trump so far for his handling of COVID-19?
Is a certain governor available?  :)
I donít really understand this. Cuomo, whoís state has been hit far worse than every other state and is getting worse fast, is a good governor, while Trump is to blame for the virus? Where is the Stateís responsibility in this? Take New York out and the US has actually contained the virus really well thus far. Maybe the PM of Italy is doing a great job too..

Re: Delta to tlv opening May 8 Thereís something that I think needs to be clarified here. @Chaikel touched upon it, but Iíd like to elaborate a bit.

If you booked via a travel agent but your credit card was charged by the airline, that is NOT the same as if you booked directly with the airline. See, it may LOOK like a pure airline transaction, but itís not. Hereís what will happen:

You dispute the charge with the airline. The airline loses (rightfully so), and you get the money back on your credit card. Then, separately, at a later date, the airline sends the TA a debit memo for the full price of the ticket. Not just clawing back the $50 (or whatever) of commission that they paid the TA for bringing you; they make him pay the full $1,200 price tag of your ticket.

Yes, itís insane. Why are they allowed to get away with it? I have no idea. As my good friend and fellow TA @chff has said many times, ďdebit memos are basically a legalized form of robbery.Ē The airlines are bullies, and they take the agentsí money simply because they can. Like an immature brat at the playground: ďItís my ball, and you have to play by my rules. If you donít, Iím taking my ball and going home.Ē

So yes. If you dispute the charge, (a) you are putting the TA on the hook for the full price of your ticket, heís not just losing his commission; (b) you are not stealing the money directly from the travel agentís pocket, youíre taking it (rightfully) from the airline, BUT (c) know that you are directly causing the airline to steal from the defenseless travel agent.

Maybe you can get off by claiming itís ďonly a gramaĒ? Or perhaps the opposite - maybe youíre supposed to be mevater and not claim your money from the airline, if you know for a fact youíre directly throwing a frum Jew under the bus? I donít know. Iím a travel agent, not a dayan. What I do know is that if you canít reach an amicable compromise with your TA, then as a G-d fearing Jew, you canít just take the law into your own hands. You need to ask a shaila of a competent rav or dayan, and/or work the matter out in Beis Din.

Will you win, financially, if you throw your TA under the bus? Probably. But will you win in Beis Din Shel Mailah? Maybe, maybe not. At the very least, itís worth consulting Daías Torah before doing something that could affect your soul for eternity.

New Tzedakah Matching Funds Campaign Up To $20,000 - [CAMPAIGN ENDED]
New deal:
An anonymous partner pledged $2100 for a new mini campaign. He will match any donation of at least $100 with 3x the amount. So $700 from you equals $2100.
If $100 is too much for you, ask someone to help you, and share the mitzvah!
(As always, matches are subject to our discretion.)

______

Boruch Hashem, we have reached our goal. Members have contributed $5,000+ in 5 days, and we will match it shortly with $15,000, for a total of $20,000.
I will post when it is done (it takes quite a bit of time ;) ).
Thank you!!!

Contribute to any of the individual family funds here: https://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=115340.0
and we will (collectively) match your contribution 3x, so every ten dollars you contribute becomes FORTY DOLLARS (minimum $10 donation). Up to a maximum of $5,000, which becomes $20,000.
The campaign begins now, and ends next Monday (unless we reach our goal sooner).
In order to get the match, you need to PM me. Please post in the charity thread also, to encourage others to contribute. But do not put it in the wiki; let's reserve that for the actual tzedakah links.
Thanks to my partners, Dan, aygart, 12HRS, and 2x מתן בסתר. And thanks to chapshnell for maintaining the charity page.

Important note:
We will do our best to match accurately, but we cannot guarantee perfection. Ultimately it is left to our discretion and judgement. (If you already donated and do not accept these terms, please PM , and we will work it out to your satisfaction.)

Update:
Many people have already donated, large and small donations, some of whom are not posting on the thread. Keep it up!

Exciting update: Some of our matchers are considering matching even more than their original commitment, so please continue to contribute even after we reach our goal.

Note: Various questions arise re the matching. Therefore, it is all up to to our discretion. We will definitely (bli neder) give what we committed; the only issues that arise are re the exact allocation.

Re: Bill DíBlasio Warns "The Jewish Community"
Gold from @Chaikel


Lol that is great. I am usually not political on twitter but that tweet really riled me up.

This kept me up late at night. Not enough characters on twitter I need to rant once here about all the aspects that bother me and get it off my chest to feel better. Feel free to ignore this it's for me not you.

Basically the entire NYC was outside yesterday b/c it was 67 degrees for once and everyone is feeling cooped up, many flooding the parks and violating social distancing. All ethnicities. Particularly egregious were people watching some planes do a tribute, according to the NY post they were standing shoulder to shoulder and stationary (a nice idea I guess but gun to my head a funeral is "more important" than any kind of plane tribute - I'm not defending chasidim here, I am just calling out these plane watchers. Some were saying they felt stuck when so many people gathered and blamed each other for encroaching in their space. Um you're not stuck, take your butt and go home.)
Meanwhile a group of chasidim pre-coordinated an outdoor, socially distant funeral for a very prominent and revered leader with the NYPD (which means they should get some of the blame for this falling apart btw), including masks being handed out. Granted people were idiots and it got blown to hell, but the effort was at least made at the outset. It gets out of hand, the Mayor goes personally to help break it up.

Tired and exhausted (probably) the Mayor at night takes to twitter and not only sees fit to call out this group of chasidim out of all the social distancing violators yesterday, but does so with the term "Jewish community" (!!!!!)
 
Important backdrop: In the past year, there has been a scary and meteoric rise specifically in anti-Jew hate crime in his city (Jews getting randomly beat up in the streets etc) under his watch. You would think he would be extremely careful and sensitive about doing anything that might negatively impact anti-Jewish sentiment? Like be absolutely sure your tweet will be helpful and do more good than harm.

Yet in an extremely turbulent time where tensions are high with this virus, he decides to point out chasidim and threaten them with arrest (Chasidim don't have twitter and won't see this). But now making a bad thing much worse, he doesn't say chasidish community or Williamsburgh community he uses the term JEWISH COMMUNITY.

Jews make up 13% of NYC. The vast majority of us are following the rules. Anyone reading this tweet won't know this. People are stuck at home and looking for news and in a world with fewer and fewer unbiased sources, a tweet straight from a politician carries a lot of weight as to the facts on the ground. People are going to think Jews are violating social distancing when the opposite is true. The overwhelming majority are following the rules. Come on we are hypochondriacs.

Lastly the hypocritical part. Bill De Blasio is famous for downplaying this virus in early march encouraging everyone to "get out on the town despite coronavirus" (3/2 tweet). 6 days after purim and 3 days after Lakewood rabbinic authorities banned public gatherings, De Blasio went to a gym. To this day, De Blasio takes a car to brooklyn to go for walks, which is counter his own directive to "avoid all unnecessary travel" (he lives near a park). Even if you think it's not technically harmful (I'd agree), it is still counter to his directive, period, and a good leader would go above and beyond to set an example, let alone fall short of his own guidelines even in a technical/non-dangerous sense.

I think I covered it all. Ok I can finally move on from this topic.

Put up or shut up time The back and forth on this forum between the "it's over, COVID is done" vs. "humanity is certain to die out due to COVID-19" is nauseating (especially when in actuality, that's likely neither sides real opinion).
So....let's make this real. Right now there are 100K deaths in the US.
For all the people who are on side 1, pledge to give $1K to coronavirus victims campaigns if the final total of deaths is greater than 350K.
For all those on side 2,  pledge to give $1K to coronavirus victims campaigns if the final total of deaths is less than 200K.

Re: Friends don't let friends fly spirit.
Actually, there were too many empty rows to count. I didn't "manage" to get an exit row. I asked nicely once on board.

BREAKING: SPIRIT EMPLOYEE GRANTS COURTESY

An employee of Spirit Airlines allegedly granted a request from a passenger, the Associated Press reported.

The unnamed passenger reportedly asked if they can be moved to an open exit row. In a move heralded by civil rights leaders as a once-in-a-lifetime milestone, the crew member granted the courtesy, allowing the passenger to have the empty seat and enjoy the accompanying extra leg-room.

"Since women got their right to vote, I don't think there has been any single act that has encapsulated the advent in human rights as much as this one," the ADL and the NAACP said in a joint statement.

The employee was immediately fired from his job, with the airline citing a violation of policy as the cause.

"We don't give anything for free," Spirit CEO Edward Christie told reporters. "This employee risked the reputation of our company for a senseless act. He should never have been hired."

Re: Taking all bets on Trump winning 2020 Election.
Talk about moving the goalpost, ROFLMAO!!!
Please learn how betting works before you start this non-sense.
It does not matter if a candidate wins by 1% or 50%. If the poll predicted that candidate then they got it right.

Let me see if I got this straight...

  • The bet is not about who wins, it's about if the polls are right
  • The polls are right if they get the winner right, but it doesn't matter if they predicted he would get 90% and he only gets 55%
  • You have no idea who will win, but you're certain the polls are right, but only on the winner and not on the exact percentages
  • I should learn how betting works, but you're giving straight odds on an odds-on landslide bet

I'm sure this makes sense somehow, but I'm not understanding it.
