Destination Guides And Trip Planning / Re: Orlando Master Thread
« on: January 06, 2021, 06:50:07 PM »
Iíve never been to Orlando but I see that Disney doesnít discount tickets. Does anyone have any idea about universal? Both Torah Academy and Chanda seem to offer discounts but neither have responded to my emails/call. Anyone have any other idea?

TIA

Have a bunch of citi points that I got in a promotion and arenít transferable so Iím figuring Iíll just use it for a car rental. But citi no longer offers car insurance. Would I be able to use the Amex premium car rental insurance on the rental if I use the Amex to hold the car rental and/or pay any other associated fees (car seat/gas/tolls etc)?

TIA

On The Road / Re: National Emerald Club

Usually pretty decent. When I was there in October, they didn't have any cars out at all. They asked each person what they needed and brought that out. I got a Nissan Armada, but it was pretty high mileage, especially for National.

I don't know what it is like now, in season. Let us know.
Will do. Although my decision to use national depends on the likelihood of sing my EE if i pay with UR. Any DPs on that?

I've searched the chat and found bits and pieces but haven't seen any consensus.

When paying with Chase UR, do you still get executive elite benefits? Does it depend on which location? I'll be at FLL.

(as a follow-up, how is the selection at FLL?)

TIA

Iím sure this was asked but couldnít find it through search -

I applied for CSP last night and got an email confirming the application. Yet when I call the status line it says the SS does not match any records. Does that mean I typed in the wrong SS? If yes, what can I do? Especially since I want the added bonus which expires today.

I don't care much for tischler but the fact that he has a harder time making it out the revolving door than serial rapists and the like is definitely something

His mistake was going after deblasio's wife
Yep. But he isn't the brightest so doesn't surprise me...

What about Kornbluh walking back his "brutally assaulted" line? The guy is so full of it. Not sure who is more full of it him or Just Enough heshy

Tishler is a complete nutjob but I can't say I have much respect for kornbluh either... his presser today definietly added to my lack of respect. Anyone looking to actually *help* frum Jews and *save lives* wouldn't immediately run to speak to a bunch of rabbis who as it is hate anything to do with the "ultra-orthodox."

What a joke

Ok, so Rasha.
Okay, that I can handle. Are they wrong, mistaken, perhaps even reshaim? I can take that but it is ridiculous to call people without masks rodfim.

It might make slightly more sense when a confirmed covid carrier knowingly walks into an indoor shul without a mask. But stam for a reg guy to walk around mask - that doesn't cross the line.

Perhaps simple mesira would suffice?
Which then means we can kill the moiser. Either way someone dies in your story.

Politics / Re: RBG DDF shortlist and how it will shape the Elections

I was explaining how RVW exists within its framework. Saying "it's framework is wrong" doesn't mean anything until the Supreme Court overturns it.

I also explained how the court might go about overturning it in a narrow way (by saying that the science has changed and the benefits to saving prenatal life is greater now). In all likelihood, this is the way that the court will go. It will leave in place the legal theory that led to Roe, but curtail it in practice (ie by moving the cutoff date to 40 days, for example, or allowing a heartbeat law, with still technically keeping abortion as a right nationally).

Further, I commented that the impetus to say that abortion = murder is itself somewhat of a reach.
RVW exists within RVW. Yes, I sure hope so. I exist within my framework too. Where does that take me?

Okay, okay, dumb analogy. But you get my point. Everything exists within it's own framework.

It seems like everyone is happy to say anything that fits within their worldview falls under judicial review, and anything that falls outside it is legistlating from the bench.
LOLOLOL

Still waiting for a response on my point that Liberals are way more likely to legislate from the bench and how liberals are okay with that. (a somewhat defensible position, albeit one I disagree with).

And you haven't offered any reasonable response to anything anyone else has sent your way.

Trust me, I'm surrounded by liberals and many are reasonable and make solid arguments. I can't count you among them though.

So let me get this straight, you are quoting from RVW to show that RVW is in a basic reading of the constitution? And then you are calling other things laughable?

There can be a right to privacy without it meaning that the ability to regulate a doctor's office with a big huge sign offering abortions is included. Including this right to privacy under due process is very difficult to see as being inherently there. There can still be a right to privacy under other clauses of the constitution, but that would not include the favored outcome of protecting abortion.
At this point, I'm beginning to not take @shaulyaakov seriously anymore.

Privacy from prying eyes is based on illegal search and seizure as well as housing of soldiers. THat the right to privacy restricts regulating an action is new. It is a stretch to say that a right to privacy means that a doctor can't be regulated against having an abortion clininc with a big huge sign in front.
Exactly.

If I *privately* murder my roommate, I don't lose my right to privacy by getting charged with murder. The liberal narrative surrounding abortion is just hilarious and laced with hypocrisy.

Just to start, the fact that it is framed as reproductive justice when it is about everything beside reproduction is just comical. I guess calling it killing fetuses just wouldn't garner as much political support.

Merrick garland was specifically designed to be the least controversial pick possible, in the hopes of creating momentum to force a vote.

Trump's only risk here is that ACB says something in her hearings that make 2 or more Republicans not support her. I can't think of anything she could possibly say to change their minds.
Agreed. Dont think there is much risk here.

Disagree on the Garland thing though. Obama knew Garland wasn't going to get a vote. So he specifically chose the most moderate person he can find to make the GOP look stupid, and should a situation like the one today arise, hypocritical. Had he chose a super liberal judge, the GOP would have just said we oppose on ideological grounds.
