Anyone in NJ get the 600 per week retroactively? Do I have to call in or is that just for reg UI?

I voted for HH last time. This time I voted against him for 2 reasons.
1 - I don't think he will be able to change anything, and will only make a ruckus, enough to bring great shame to the Ortho community.
2 - He's said and written alot of things since the last time he ran, that showed him to be a sore loser. He's written an op-ed in a Howell non-Jewish newspaper against the Rabonim of Lakewood. I don't think he has the judgement to serve in office. If it was someone else I would vote for him.
Going against the establishment in any community requires great wisdom and an advisor with "breite pleitzes". He does not seem at this point to have any of that. Anyone who writes against Rabbonim in ANY venue, let alone a non-Jewish one has lost all sense of perspective.

Did you look into flying in and out of BZN? Rental car will be cheaper if you return to the same location as pickup.
Highly recommend Autoslash for any one way rentals.

Are you allowed to have jersey care along with employer insurance? Getting conflicting info that jersey care might terminate if they find out you have employer insurance as well.
It depends on your income level.

Isin't it binyan yeladim stirah?
Right you are! Fixed it. thanks.

Again we are in galus. Protesting is one of the least mature things I've heard. Prob even worse than cutting locks on parks.

Destination Guides And Trip Planning / Re: Lakewood NJ Master Thread

Looking for someone to bring a small suitcase to Chop today
Try Chai lifeline or Bikur Cholim.

First off, if you think that people in our community, especially children and young adults, have enough of an understanding of money, finances, savings, and what it takes to make enough money to pay for the things they expect, then I think you are either an idiot or just woefully unaware of how people actually live.
Second of all, I wasn't advocating for financial literacy courses, that's a stupid idea that will teach a few guys in more modern yeshivos a little bit more about finances, that doesn't really solve anything. If you actually read all my posts from today you would have seen that I was saying that parents don't do enough of a job giving their kids an understanding of what it actually costs them to pay for the things they are coming to take for granted. And if you think there isn't a sense of entitlement among young people in our community, especially when it comes to paying for them to get married and start a life together, then I refer you back to paragraph one.
This is not particular to our communities. It occurs in many middle or upper-middle class communities, as well.

Credit Cards / Re: Credit Card Retention Bonuses

got 30K points on my amex gold without any spend. did have to agree to keep the account open for 12 months. Have the card for a while and spend a few thousand dollars a month on it

Okay, why does that change anything? Do you really think that the BD did not think of that possibility?
Don't know if they did, but would they be required to lose that money more than the parents?


Not simple. Daycamps have already paid non-refundable deposits for many parks, trips etc.

-1 not sure which camp you went to. But most summers, camps have the local PD show up for loud noise at night, cars parked on the road etc... If the governor clearly states that sleep away camps can't open. You dont need the FBI, you have neighbors that will gladly call and report you. Most of them dont want you there on a regular year.
This seems to be why they don't have permission to open. Big pressure from the locals.

They need the money that all the Jewish people donate to Cuomo year after year and they continue to do even after rent control. But at this point all the politicians know that no matter what they do the money will still pour in, so they arenít really worried about alienating anyone.
Seems to be pure politics at this point.

thats when the cuomos guys walked out of the meeting...   when they started arguing about this
Totally nuts! Let's remember all this when it comes time to vote.

I got the 150 with 1500 offer. No mention of points.
