I'm not denying that it's bad, the point is:

a) there's a difference between a storm impacting power vs bad policy.

b) that doesn't change the fact that this tweeer, and others, were just waiting for an opportunity to rebut Cruz, and any opportunity would do.

You know this guy has been watching Texas for the last 6 months, just waiting for a lightbulb to flicker so he could post that.

Is that because of the stereotype that people who are frum are bad writers?

This is from last weeks FJJ




Right next to the "Like" button, there should be another button labeled "WTF?"

You put words into my mouth. Someone feeling incited doesn't prove he was incited, but it is supporting evidence. If dozens of people say there was incitement, there likely was incitement.

There is a very big difference between testifying "I felt incited by Donald Trump" and "Donald Trump incited me". One is a feeling, one is a fact.

I disagree - they're both feelings, but one is phrased to sound like a fact.

Saying that someone incited you is, in effect, saying that you felt incited by them. It just tries to make the fault lie more on the other person.

I think store bought guac is much worse than store-bought chummus.

“It’s the Mike Tyson line: ‘Everybody has a plan until I punch them in the face,’” Mr. Cuomo said.

I think that's quite accurate. Everyone had a plan until Cuomo punched them in the face.

Is there a good website focusing on how much snow has fallen, what the breakdown of how much snow falling when is, etc?

Curious to hear opinions - I bought blackberry about 9 months ago, probably about $4 and change. Was strongly considering selling once I hit the 1-year mark anyway...wondering if this recent upheaval is going to hurt things over the 3-6 month range.

Technology progresses and leaves behind old, outdated tech. Just as we don’t see many complaining about Tesla’s lack of buttons (touch screen), CD player (bluetooth, native players), etc because we realize they are relics of the past, it is kind of hypocritical to complain about outdated tech in the smartphone space like removable batteries (built in more efficient batteries, battery packs), SD cards (cloud/PC backups) etc.

Just my two cents. Remember when everyone complained about iPhone’s not having Flash or a 3.5mm port? Or even HDMI?

In what way are built-in batteries more efficient?

Speed cameras also flash only when they catch someone.

I think the fact that all of those "2nd memes" I've seen online point to the fact that he is factually correct. So it might be more accurate if you were going to write such a meme.

However, the question is - which one do you agree with more.

Step 1 is accepting that people who disagree could be human, and that in an ideal world, it would be good to have dialogue.
