My understanding was that he thinks it is corrupt for public officials to profit from companies they can influence and are privy to exclusive material information.

Did she have any influence or inside info regarding Tesla?

But itís public record so itís legal. Sigh.

What am I missing? ELI5

I don't really understand what you're saying, but I guess that's because I'm not really familiar about what's going on. I just saw a few sheets that were sent home and I was horrified. I don't really keep up with all the goings on in the Chassideshe (or Yeshivish) world, but this was shocking to me, and I was expressing my surprise that it wasn't to others.

I have no idea about anything going on in viznitz, but I do have experience in people misunderstanding something they see because they are not familiar with the culture or language of those who wrote it. Please keep that in mind before accusing thousands of frumme yidden of serving avodah zarah

It is fascinating how Trump makes his enemies turn into clones of him...

But it's excellent news that 11 months later I'm still at the high end of the range.

How severe was your case? I thought they were saying that people with mild cases likely have lower antibody count.


How long did it take for Fauci to go from "top scientist who served under 6 presidents" to "Trump holdover"

It would have a chilling effect on forums like DDF.

Wouldn't a threshold system (similar to the one that states have with regards to sales tax) avoid this issue?

So basically if someone is a bad person then anything they participate in must automatically be condemned.

Also, if someone is a bad person they must have done everything that they are accused of doing, regardless of the lack of (or contrary) evidence.

No. See Rambam טומאת מת פ"ג הל' ד.

It looks like the goal of 100m is like a participation trophy.

Will it be possible to keep up this pace after those most eager to get it are done?

Waiting for @PlatinumGuy to do the calculation of the number of DDFers who were wrong in the poll.

In keeping with current custom, voting will remain open until the desired results are reached...

the executive tries to ruin it with EOs

That's only possible because the legislature has ceded so much power to the executive and executive agencies.

Can we leave the diagnosies to the psychiatrists?

Can we discuss ideas without appeals to authority? If your argument is that this thread is the wrong place for this discussion, then fine.

I agree with your criticism of those who stigmatize mental illness. But I don't think that we need a psychiatrist to tell us that people who are 12 times more likely to commit suicide than the general population are not in severe emotional and mental distress.

Disclaimer: do not take medical advice from random people having a discussion on the internet.

Again, do you know anything about her or are you just deciding she isn't qualified without any evidence?

Don't know why it's in this thread, but this guy put in place the same policy regarding nursing homes that NY had. Meanwhile, he transfered his mother out of the nursing home she was in to protect her...
