Thoughts?

He does not address the fact that by voting we would be legitimizing their claim to represent "American Jewry"

Was there always a charge for boxes?

Stores in Monsey recently started charging for boxes also

I can't get to the Daily Mail from the computer I'm currently at (filter).

I did see this, though - https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/ilhan-omar-marry-brother/
(start from "According to Omarís proffered version of events").

This is from before the DM article which quotes someone (that they say is) an influential member of the Somali community as confirming that her second husband is her brother. Also, her marriage license (for the second husband) is signed by a Christian Minister which is weird for 2 Muslims (although on its own doesn't prove anything).

Snopes also leaves out that she was filing taxes with her first husband while married to her second, and that there are indications that the three of them lived in the same house together.

This would be much more of buying a presidency than Trump.

Right. That's my point

Bloomberg wouldn't spend money on ads?

The claim being made here
So I just listened to Ben Shapiro's friday show and he said hat it must be that Bloomy is hoping for this and then he will tell the DNC that he will bankroll every single important Democratic race in the country. Will be an offer that the DNC can't refuse.
and other places, is that the DNC will give him the nomination in exchange for donations hell make to them and other Democrats.

All of those who were busy saying how Trump shouldn't be allowed to buy the presidency.

Spending money on ads is very different than explicitly giving hundreds of millions of dollars to delegates/DNC in exchange for the nomination.

Then the only thing to remain to be seen is if Bloomberg could win the general election without Sanders supporters, who will no doubt be furious.

I think it will be a lot more than just Bernie supporters who are turned off by someone explicitly buying the nomination.

Any comments from the "Bernie has a ceiling of 30%" people?

I watched 30 seconds to see what I missed and closed it.

I don't think that adds to the YouTube view count.

I'm looking forward to the retrospectives on Biden and Bloomberg's role in giving Bernie the nomination.

I think the driving force is simply that major retailers are enthusiastic about the cost savings

The
Paper bag is 5 cent fee.
is certainly about paying off the retail lobby so they don't oppose the ban.

In addition to all the other inconveniences, get ready to wait 3x as long on the checkout line while people fumble with packing their paper or reusable bags
