Lol, a little bit of honesty would be refreshing.
Did you really expect that from Biden? I'd quicker expect it from Trump than Biden.

Seems like a cheap shot.
The fact that Biden is taking credit for everything Trump did?

I thought the Trump admin had options built in to vaccinate all Americans?
That doesn't contradict anything Biden said.

Amazon & Walmart Deals / Re: Amazon Shopper Panel
« on: Today at 01:15:35 PM »
It's directly on Amazons website, so it must be legit. There are other apps like ibotta that pay you for sharing your shopping data, it definitely makes sense that amazon would pay you for it.

It is sad that these allegations are somehow worse than the eldercide that he committed. They are both wrong but he should have been done a while ago already.

The scary part is that whoever replaces him in NY may very well be worse.
If he's ousted or resigns he'll be replaced by the Lt Gov. who is much less extreme. Whether or not she would be able to win reelection is a different story.

Israel is getting really close to vaccinating the maximum number of people. Currently 43.7% of the population received at least 1 dose, when you add nearly 8% of the population who tested positive (minus some overlap) you're at around 50%. Approximately 30% of the population is under 16, so they're not eligible. That leaves around 20% (1.8 million people) who haven't received at least 1 dose.
Now 2 weeks later 52.4% of the population received at least 1 dose. I assume a decent number of those who who tested positive are among the vaccinated. 8.5% of the population tested positive, if we assume half of them got the vaccine, that gives us 56.65% of the population either tested positive or got the vaccine. That leaves only around 13.5% of the population (1.25 million people) eligible for the vaccine but still not immune or vaccinated. This also means Israel was able to vaccinate between 1/4 and 1/3 of the remaining eligible population in the past 2 weeks.

How do you read it as saying all the Chassidim on the plane were non compliant and not just, well, a large group?
They didn't say they were all non compliant, they said "members of a large group" meaning some of the people they looped together were allegedly non compliant, but they chose to include all the chassidim as one big group.


Crazy how they would just issue a statement like this without investigation.
Just always trust the FA.. 

The fact that they just included all the Chassidim as "a large group" painting them with a broad brush like that is at least as bad as issuing an unverified statement without investigating.

Tech Talk / Re: Any special offers to switch to FIOS?
« on: Yesterday at 11:37:31 AM »
I have Optimum and the price keeps going up for lousy service.

Anyone aware of special promo codes or promotions to switch?
If you're lucky enough to have FIOS in your area, you can switch to FIOS and if they raise your rates in a year you can switch back to Optimum and get new customer pricing. Rinse and repeat.

Just Shmooze / Re: Pesach Programs and False Advertising

But don't these programs tend to operate at a razor thin margin usually? How's that affordable?
They may be able to negotiate better this year. For example a hotel would rent out the entire hotel for cheaper this year because they can't make as much money by operating normally.

Did Lakewood Auto sales become iCar or they are separate business?

ETA: They are related, IINM they're second cousins.

Which may have been the purpose.
That already backfired on them in 2016

I donít see Trump winning in 2024 unless somehow Biden is still in office and wonít give it up while his mental health deteriorates to a point where itís impossible to hide it anymore.
Trump lost too much support on Jan 6th to win a national election.
1) I think you're overestimating how much support he lost.
2) The Ds decided to impeach him, that only made him stronger.

And that gets you ?
say he has $100 in rewards, which gets you $100 worth of groceries. He wants to sell those rewards for $70 so whoever buys them can save 30%.

Buy groceries.
