Re: 2016 Election Pick Your Poison Master Thread
One of us is experiencing cognitive dissonance. Here's why I think it's you.

He said "they let you do it." The imagery I get from that is that, as a famous person, he can be more forward and take more risks than other people because he's pretty sure he won't be rejected. I don't see any indication that, if he does get rejected by a woman, he would continue touching her against her will.

Even the women who've come forward say he touched them "without permission." Most socially normal people don't ask permission first. They look for signals. He interprets signals more often than regular people because he gets them more often than regular people.

I'm warning you to stop. Just stop. You don't have to defend sexual assault to explain why you support Trump. You can support Trump for any reason you want. Even just for the hell of it. I'm fine with that. But for the love of G-d, please do not force yourself to rationalize sexual assault. Walk away from this one.

"They let you do it" should send chills down the spine of anyone with a mother or a daughter or a sister or a wife. "They let you do it" is a sentiment completely lacking the slightest comprehension of the emotions of another human being. It doesn't matter if it's wealth, power, or fame, or a knife to your throat, "They let you do it" is not a defense against being labeled a total user but the very definition of it. Can you not see that? "They let you do it" is the defense of every child molester who grooms his victims rather than bashing them in the face and raping them. "They let you do it" is the defense of every frat boy who had sex with a drunk girl. "They let you do it" is the defense of every producer in Hollywood who uses aspiring actors for sex.

Sorry to be so blunt.

*There is no chance I'll ever earn that cup of coke, unless SAA starts sending specials to my mother far more frequently
Probably Coke Zero

Re: PSA - Stay Away From The Card Signup Farms Who Offer $5000 In One Month Some of you are unbelievable. All the post does is encourage you to be careful with your personal information, to think hard about the type of schemes you are getting yourself into and to excersize caution and discretion with credit/financial decisions. So the only people whose parnassah is getting screwed by this are those that are relying on duping others to some extent.

Re: Pesach Program in Greece Cancelled Just Now!
When I was a bochur, a good friend of mine who used to do Hashgocho gigs for the OK told me, that the OK will not take Lubavitchers as mashgichim for Sukkos programs. The reasoning was that a "Lubavitcher" who would go on such a program, couldn't be makpid on not drinking outside the sukkah, so if he's willing to go somewhere where he can't keep up to that, he might not be so ירא שמים. While for a non-Lubavitcher drinking outside the sukkah is a non-issue.

I don't know if this was a strict policy, and whether it might be the current policy, or only an idea that came up in conversation.

Sure,  but the bochurim who want to go to cancun for pesach are probably spending their spare time drawing the kav

Re: US Politics/2016 Election Pick Your Poison Master Thread
Can someone please explain to me what it is suspected that Flynn did criminally that Trump obstructed?
Flynn failed to report that he had performed work for foreign governments including Turkey. This is grounds for being stripped of his security clearance, if not prosecuted. He is alleged to have been compromised in other ways as well.
Did it have anything to do with any possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia?
The investigation of Flynn's actions is part of a broader investigation of Russian meddling in the election, and the conclusions have not been reached.  As part of the FBI investigation, grand jury subpoenas have been issued for associates of Flynn. Obstruction comes from Trump reportedly pressuring Comey to drop the Flynn investigation, later pressuring him to drop the entire Russia investigation, then firing him when he declined and would not swear personal loyalty to Trump.
What did Russia do which had a potential impact other that possibly having been involved in the Podesta email leak and some silly online propaganda?
That "silly" propaganda was apparently somewhat effective, as many people hold beliefs from completely fabricated stories. As to the overall impact of the meddling, that's for historians to pick apart, but the important thing to investigate now is whether any Americans encouraged or were complicit in the meddling, because that could be treason.

2. It's only a matter of time before Republicans bail on Trump en masse when they realize they can't get anything done due to his shenanigans. I'm sure many think they would get a lot more done with Pence.
Most Republicans have never liked Trump or his shenanigans. They need his voters, though, and this is why they mostly keep their mouth shut.

Meanwhile we don't even know if this whole memo thing is true. There has been so much untrue thinly sourced reporting on this administration that we cannot know what to believe and what not to. Once upon a time the media reporting had a goal of truth. No longer. They openly state that they need to be oppositional to Trump. No they don't. They need to be truthful. When the editors approve every sensational thinly sourced leak as they have been doing is there any question as to why they have lost credibility?
All of these leaks have been well sourced by dozens of reputable news organizations. I think you're watching too much Hannity and reading too much Breitbart if that's what you believe.

Lets say it is true. What exactly does it show? There have not yet been any allegations of criminality against Flynn. The most the openly oppositional Yates was able to come up with was that he may be a target of blackmail. What did Trump obstruct?
Yates could not speak much of the evidence in her public testimony because it is classified. Again, Trump is reported to have pressured Comey to drop looking into Flynn, then drop the Russia inquiry completely, then fired him when he refused to comply.

Obstruction of Justice is by definition when there is a suspected crime.
Conspiring with the Russians to influence the US election is a crime, yes. The investigation may ultimately conclude that that didn't happen. But there's too much smoke to ignore the possibility of fire. And so a preliminary attempt to shut down the investigation before it can properly look into these things is obstructing justice.
